Description: You might be in King’s Cross to catch the Eurostar out of town but, before you go, make the most of this newly regenerated area, which is buzzing with pubs and clubs. After a delicious meal at Thyme, you could even take a stroll up to Camden, with its cool markets and bars.

“I wish I had gone somewhere else”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

From the lobby, at a casual glance, the place looks fine. Even the menu looks good. That's as far as it goes.

Bartender was nice, but he doesnt drink nor does he know drinks! Had the ingredients for a martini...alas not possible. In England...never heard of a black and tan.

Worst nachos I've ever had. Awful chips poured from a bag...jar salsa...a lump of semi melted, turned brick like cheese on top.

Had a burger. It was OK. The tomato was green. The salt shaker was rock salt. Like eating little crunchy rocks with your burger.

Enough complaining. If you have really low expectations, this is the place. Otherwise, steer clear!

“Definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

The waiters are very service minded and some with a lot of humor. Thanks for that! You just have to try their Indian food - delicious! It was the best food on our trip. Location is also very good. If we live nearby the next time we visit London, we will definitely return. Highly recommended!

“Try the Indian Curry and Lemon Meringue Dessert”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We enjoyed immensely the Curry served with Basmatic rice, yellow lentils and heated nan bread. Delicious and a generous serving. For dessert the Lemon Meringue pudding was a perfect meal conclusion- light, sweet and oh so good!
