Galvin at Windows

There's no denying Galvin at Windows is pricey, but you're not just paying for the amazing views - the food is worth the investment too.

Immaculate and friendly (unstuffy) service allow you to properly relax. It's not often I give 10/10 but in theis case I'll make an exception for the exceptional.

If you can get a table in the small garden at the back and the weather is good, it's the perfect cosy romantic Soho meal - perfect lighting, great food and ideal location.

I don't understand what people are talking about when they say the decor is beautiful and stylish! The whole place looks like it was last decorated 10 years ago with leftover paint from a burlesque show. The dining room looked as though it had a few tables missing, and not all of them were laid. I had trouble believing it actually was a restaurant when we arrived.

It was so tired and grubby that we were too scared to try the food. So we didn't.

On the plus side the barman was friendly.

Don't be tempted to go here, unless you just want a few drinks before going on for dinner in a real restaurant.

Koh Thai

One of the best bits about moving to Barons Court was that we are now within walking distance of Koh Thai (also known as @Thai) on the Greyhound Road.

Charming garden, extremely good food promptly served - and they even deliver if you live close enough!

The green curry has got a nice kick to it which is refreshing, (not the kick - the fact that it has one) and the Phad Thai is nice and juicy!

I'd definitely recommend this place - especially if it's a sunny evening as the garden is perfect served with a dry white.

Go there. Go on. You won't regret it.
