If you have the books you need to go. The food was so tasty and beautifully displayed. Helpings were generous, it was just really hard to decide what not to have as we wanted to try everything. Good fresh food in interesting combinations. Lunch can...More

Sorry don't know, suggest just phone them up or drop them a note. We like it here and by London prices it isn't too outrageous. The flavours are interesting mixes and we have never been disappointed. If Theodoros reckons it... More
