Visited this restaurant as people talk about it a lot. Expected outstanding food but I would say it's nice. Quite expensive I felt.

Good choice of menu. Very tasty and correct servings. Nice, relaxed atmosphere but be warned reserve a table if you want to eat during the main lunch "rush hour". Otherwise, you will be queing!

I had a barley cup with almond milk - which was delicious. They have lots of everything else: turmeric lattes, smoothies etc. Fab service and really lovely to hang out in.
