Went here for my birthday and was greeted by a nervous looking young lady and a man who Reminded me of an old school teacher. Had the four course with wine pairing. The food is not as good as I’ve eaten in Michelin star restaurants...More

The food was not good, the portions were absurdly small, and it was ludicrously expensive. At least when you pay a fortune in London you are almost guaranteed that the food will be marvellous. It's a set menu so be very careful to find out...More
