We went here for a post-performance meal. Having just walked out of somewhere else because the music was abominably loud, the muzak here felt tolerable, although the general ambience I would describe as 'functional'. Two of us ordered the risotto and it was shocking. It...More

Visited with a friend for a casual lunch. Stumbled upon a voucher - 2 courses for £9.95 - bargain. Very quick service, from a slightly flustered, but efficient, polite waiter. Good tasting food, served super quick. A huge restaurant, be great for a big party!!!

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
