service is absolutely terrible so slow. My partner & I were completely forgotten about 3 times. Food is nice but the wait and delay in bringing our drinks, tissues, basics ruined our meal.

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
