The staffs were very friendly, we went in around half eleven in the morning for lunch but they only start serving items from the lunch menu from twelve. Luckily the waitress who served us kindly asked us to take a seat and they’ll take our...More

I have become a regular at this spot as I live locally but it never disappoints. Quick service, great food selection from curries to burgers and the food always tastes amazing. Very affordable too!

Went on a Saturday morning about 9.30am. I had the bacon bagel and my daughter had the steak (5oz) I think breakfast. I asked for my bacon to be done crispy and it was. Quality bacon, no fat all. And the bagel was lovely and...More

We had 5 selections from their share plates and had a free bottle of wine to go with it. Not sure why the wine was free but the share plate food was very good. The waiter was very attentive. Overall a very good dining experience.

For 5gbp, one can select from four all-day breakfast items and add to it a hot drink (coffee/tea/chocolate). Filling and flavourful, though admittedly not the healthiest. The waitstaff is one of the most cheerful we've ever encountered in London. Thank you! Recommendable!

The food was excellent with the lunch time specials superb value. Given that they were busy the service was pretty quick and very friendly. So why not 5 stars? Because a so-called 'optional' service charge of 12.5% is added to the bill. You can ask...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
