We were staying at the attached hotel (Crowne Plaza), and decided to try it one night for dinner. Started out with service being slow to get our drink order even though only about four tables of guests. But once we got going, service was fine....More

Greasy. Limited selection. Overpriced. Inauthentic. This is not good Asian cuisine. I had pad thai that was absurdly sweet.

Food was unique and tasty while having charming service. The staff was more than willing to make slight adjustments to the menu. The menu was inventive and the cocktails and wine list creative.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to

such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
