I have been here a few times now. Recently the prices have increased to that of a mid range restaurant while it is not. The food is not bad. However, what irks me most is the fact that they don't provide you with a proper...More

The restaurant is small, crowded and dated, looks cheap. The truth is it is cheaper then other options, but not a lot. The service is bad, waiters are not polite, at the end you do not even get a real bill, it is a hand...More

This has always been a 'go to' place for me at lunchtimes. I've been eating here for over 10 years. It's especially good if you have a group of friends and a strict lunch hour. You can get in, choose, eat and leave within an...More

Great little noodlehouse, tucked away on a side street, which at the time of writing (late Jan 2016) is somewhat obscured by scaffolding. Well worth seeking out, this small and unpretentious Malaysian-Chinese restaurant dishes out tasty and generous plates of noodles at a very reasonable...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
