“It's ok”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I find the menu repetitive, and they overuse black rice. There is nothing spectacular about Crave. Service is just ok but they don't check back to see if you're enjoying the meal.

“A Pleasant dining experience away from the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

The food selection has a reasonable variety to suit many tastes. The service was good. The portions were right-sized and the presentation was appealing. The coffee is excellent. Prices are a little higher but very reasonable if you happen to be able to take advantage of a discount which are currently available on return visits.
From what I can deduce, the discounts on return visits seem to have significantly increased the number of patrons from the last time we dined here.

“GREAT PLACE TO EAT!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We have eaten at The Crave numerous times and have always loved the food, the atmosphere is excellent and the staff is very friendly!!! My wife just loves the rack of lamb, she will not get anything else or order it anywhere else. We both agree it is the best restaurant in London to go out for DINING!! Lyle and Geri

“I love the Crave!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

I have been going to the Crave for a good few years now and have yet to have had a bad meal. Everything is always perfect and the service is excellent. The staff is always friendly and polite. Can't wait to go back. I've brought family and friends there and everyone has liked it.
