Slightly let down by the waiting time for our time, we waited around 30 minutes to be seated. But the food was excellent and the stuff very much looked after us. I have a nut allergy, so the manager made sure he looked me, which was very sweet. Service and food was great - I have a sweet tooth so... More

Upscale restaurant. I had been traveling so I was under-dressed but they treated me respectfully. The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. Enjoy a night of fine dining in elegant surroundings.

Visited here on a Sunday lunch, had scallops with puffed rice as a starter which was lovely. Following this I had a paneer masala with saffron rice which was both tasty and plentiful! Dessert time... "apple in a blanket". Apple parfait, walnut cake, saffron custard, crumble, and apple slices... possibly the nicest dessert I have ever eaten. 10/10 Bit pricey... More

Visited London for the weekend. Had an extremely enjoyable visit to this place and the staff were great; very accommodating around our theatre visit and a lovely surprise at the end with cake and champagne sent over to the table! Highly recommended.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
