We had a good dinner. It was spicy and we were not notified and the menu didn’t specify that. We took the Gold Menu and it was good and price was attractive for what we get. The waiter from Bangladesh was very helpful, shy and...More

Nine of us from the office had the express lunch - very good quality and value. The Tom Yum followed by Red Curry was spot on.

Stopped off for a quick lunch, restaurant was rammed. The lunch menu was good value for London and was very tasty, service was a bit sparse as seemed to be much busier than they expected. Friendly though

A friend took me here for lunch and we turned up without reservation to be greeted and seated promptly. We both chose from the 2 course lunch menu for £9.50 and enjoyed a great meal with attentive service. I’m heading back next week too.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
