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.

“Great restaurant, great service”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We went to this restaurant as a party of 8. We were not looking for a fast turnaround so the service suited us perfectly and I believe was paced according to our needs. Some had dishes from the fixed menu and others from the a la carte, plus we had a couple of piscatarians in the group. Without exception all the dishes we had were excellent and the service was how we like it - friendly and helpful. Our waiter, Bruno, was extremely good and paid us close attention. When it was apparent that the custard provided with the crumble wasn't as much as we would have liked he rushed to the kitchen to get us more so we had it before it was too late. Overall it was a great eating experience and I would highly recommend it if you are in the area.

“Good food and attentive service”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

An excellent dinner with friends to celebrate a birthday. Ground floor is bistro style but comfortable. Busy with good atmosphere, attentive service and very good food with a good selection of wines. 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station. We will use it again. Large upper floor was not in use when we visited.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

A bit off the beaten path at Victoria you will find About Thyme, a very nice restaurant serving high quality food at an affordable price. The atmosphere is warm and nice - do bring a date! Don't miss the apple crumble.

“Fantastic food, great service. Can't recommend it enough!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

We walked past this many times and finally went in. We should have done it much earlier. The good is amazingly tasty, the service is very professional but personal and they are great in recommending wine.

We will definitely be back here many times.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

From the minute you come in, the staff are smiling and welcoming.
I was part of a birthday party of 11 on the first floor and the waiter did very well with an efficient and friendly manner.
The only thing they would need to work on is keep an eye on our glasses as we had to help ourselves with the wine.
But I would definitely go again and I would recommend it for the food, the wine, the service and the atmosphere.
