Although it was somewhat difficult to find it was well worth effort. Everything looked good and everyone at my table loved their food. Funky place to look around - like have a meal in a antiques warehouse.

Situated in the industrial area of the Strand and with an old earoplane to indicate its location, it indeed attracts people. The inside is stuffed with old bric-a-brac and very interesting to look around while waiting for your food. Service is very good, and the food very tasty.
