We went for dinner on Sat 26th November. Location is very convenient for pre-theatre dinner if you are going to the few theatres nearby (we went to see 'Crazy for you'). There were two waitresses outside the restaurant trying to attract customers. They showed us the menu and they claimed that a two course dinner will cost £10.95 per person. We decided to go in. We were placed at a small table upstairs, which is a tiny room. There was no intimacy whatsoever, with other tables only a few inches from us.

Food was served very quickly and it wasn't the best. Very small portions and you could see that it had been cooked long before we arrived and then re-heated. I was brought my plate several minutes before my partner's. The waiters tried to take our plates away before we were finished a couple of times. They were very anxious to get us out of there!

In the end they tried to charge us more than the promised £10.95 and on top of all they charged us £8 for a glass of house wine! What a disgrace. We will never be back.
