“Don't bother.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

As many tempted in by the £5 breakfast deal. We were not seated, sat at a dirty table. Drinks took about 25 mins to arrive food even longer. Seriously not worth it. Rather pay more and get better service. When food come it was alright.

“Bad staff, It doesn't worth it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

I studied at Malvern School, which is one or two blocks from this restaurant and I was thinking that this could be a good place for having lunch.

The price is really good when you compare to others places in London but when I went to the restaurant I waited for a long time to be served. The waiter (or owner, the man who attended us didn't seem a simple waiter) was impolite.

They didn't have some snacks and foods that was showed on menu. I gave up and I left that place to find another better place for eating. I can't say about the food because the bad treatment made me lose the patience.

“No BBQ, please”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Eat as much as you like of the Italian buffet for only £6,90. That was the main reason I chose to eat at this restaurant. The location is pretty good (less than 5 minute walk from King's Cross St. Pancras overground station, right in front of the Pentonville Rd way out of the Underground stn).

The reception was nice, the waiter/teller explained me any of my doubts. The price was pretty good (I paid less than £10 for a complete meal, with many kinds of pasta and salad + soft drink).

Bad point: I ran away from the cold outside and I still found it inside the restaurant. Other than that, the BBQ was too hot and there was no names on the dishes exposed.

“Great English breakfast to start the day!”

Went here for a hearty breakfast. It was terrific and not as greasy as some of the other places near by. Really enjoyed it.

“Terrible and sad diner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We tried chicken escalopes with spaghetti. The chicken was really dry and spaghetti using tomato paste from can. I think McDonald's tasted much better than here. The place is sad really, makes your appitate lowdown.
