Description: In the heart of Victoria-Pimlico you will find About Thyme - a bright and buzzy restaurant, usually packed out with folk dropping in from offices in nearby Victoria as well as those lucky locals who have this little gem right on their doorstep. A large purple painted and glass frontage opens out in to an intimate cream painted dining room furnished in subtle and comfortable banquettes and mood lighting while in the summer months pavement dining is a must for those people watching afternoons. About Thyme's bistro style menu is put together with produce fresh from the London markets so expect great tasting flavours straight from ground, sea or field inspired by classic European recipes.

“Surprisingly delicious food in a cozy environment.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Came to the restaurant as recommendation and was blown away. After being in Bordeaux for a week, their food was a delight and a nice chance. Service was top notch, attentive from the moment you step in. Very professional staff. We tried the black pudding with scallops and they are so good and crispy. Seabass cooked in banana leaf was lovely as well. Nice little place, would have loved to come back again.

“Surprising, pleasant and cosy”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

Popped into this place as it was just up the road from the hotel and had good trip advisor reviews. Asked if they could fit us in and ended up having a very lovely evening indeed, bread, oil and olives followed by stuffed peppers and tempura courgette flowers. Very tasty and different. Mains were rack of lamb and coconut sea bass. Yet again lovely and well presented. Ended up with fruit crumble and chocolate fondant. Good wine as well, really really cold and fresh. Service Was
Good, had some loud neighbours but nothing too distracting. Had a great night and will be back again. Cheers

“Fabulous restaurant serving great food”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We were staying in Pimlico and visited About Thyme on Thursday 23rd May. A friend had seen the good reviews online and booked a table. It was a very short walk from our hotel. The restaurant was smart, had a great ambience, the staff were very helpful and attentive without being pushy and the food was delicious - well cooked and very nicely presented. Two of us had the set menu which was very good value. If we are in the area again we will definitely return to this restaurant.

“Great atmosphere and food.”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Went on Friday 24th after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor (as I always do!). Five minutes from Victoria Station, so easy to get to. What a brill place. The service was excellent, the food was to die for- Try the Lamb Shank and if you like chocolate puddings go for the Fondant. They cook them fresh as it states on the menu they take 15 minutes. And if you like Rose wine, then try the Rioja. Will definitely visit again.

“Excellent small restaurant walking distance for Victoria”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I've used this restaurant a couple of times now and it has been consistently excellent. Friendly and helpful staff (when they didn't have Manzanilla sherry they provided glasses of Cava gratis to make up for it). The price is excellent value for the area and the ambience is laid back and welcoming. I like it.
