We had a broccoli soup and a selection of bruschettas - everything was tasty and served fast. As this restaurant is in a turisty area it could be a rip off but it isnt.

Great little place for a quick snack. The luxury afternoon tea for under £20 for two was just the ticket. Try with the Bombay Chai tea. Lovely.

Does what it says on the tin: this is one of the better café options in this rather dreary part of the West End, a noisy main road sandwiched between the more glamorous Soho district and the seedy streets that make up Chinatown. But it's...More

Chosen on the basis of it being across the road from the Gielgud Theatre and convenient for a quick bite before the play. Service lacking in attention and quite slow. Not a place you would want to go for dinner proper. The menu has a...More
