This is an amazing place to eat. Seeing the food made in front of you makes you appreciate the meal, compared to ordering from a server. And it is a relatively cheap place to eat, for being near the centre of London. Highly recommendded.

Popped in on a Sunday evening for dinner. The food selection was great and it is prepared fresh. Limited bar selections which was a disappointment. The food, however, was delightful and exceptionally good.

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite

Laid back, buzzy restaurant, loved for its freshly made pasta, pizza and salad dishes. Pick up a card on the way in, choose your dish from the counters and watch it made in front of you. Pay on the way out.
