Nyborg's Kitchen

After reading these reviews, I thought this place might be decent. How wrong.

2 flat white coffee's ordered. Both arrived tepid. Complained. Second round arrived equally luke warm.

So what if they serve Monmouth coffee. If you don't know how to prepare it, what is the point. The coffee itself was too watery, and the double shot in no way compensates. I don't understand how places who primarily serve coffee, can fail so badly at making an espresso.

We were going to cut our losses, but our rye bread arrived. £3 for two tiny slices 10cm x 6cm isn't exactly generous.

Avoid.

Awful.

If you like to pay four times what you should on food, and enjoy a rushed experience this is the place for you. It would be OK if the food was any good, but it was very very average.

I find it amazing that this place is actually busy. I suppose if your priority when eating out, is to be seen, and so you can tick where you've been off your list then this again is the place for you.

You're given your 2 hour slot within which to eat, but I can assure you this is plenty of time. You'll be ready to get out of there asap.

Tinseltown (Farringdon)

If you like guinea 'foul' without the guinea, this is the place for you.

Imagine extra value treats, microwaved and then deep fried, with a friij milkshake to wash it all down with.

This I'm afraid is another addition to Hampstead, that disapoints like most other eateries in the area. Nice high street, nice shops, nice architecture, but the food is so depressing.

If you're under 12 and reading this review, you'll love it. But I suggest you go and kick a ball or comb barbies hair.

YO! Sushi (Finchley Rd)

despite a half price voucher, being famished, and queing for half an hour this was not a great experience. the sushi is no more than average. it obviously looks quickly put together, but then i suppose you get what you half pay for. i certainly would never go again and pay the regular price. the unlimited water was nice though.

Dim T (Hampstead)

if you know nothing about chinese food, this is the place for you.

if you consider dim sum to be pasties this is the place for you.

if you like to be seen in hampstead, and don't have a clue, this is the place for you.

if you like to pay for terrible service, this is the place for you.

all in all it's quite a place. avoid at all costs unless you're one of the above.

De'bloody'licious.

This has got to be the best Panjabi restaurant outside of Punjab. Especially for vegetarians the food can't be compared. Although these E. African clubs have become popular, their food really can't compete.

Value for money- you'll have plenty of change for a tenner (even for 2 of you)

BYO too. What more can a restaurant offer?

Keep your coats in the car.

Il Fornello

I have been going to this restaurant since I was a foot tall. It hasn't changed at all, and remains amazing. The tiramisu is the best I've ever had, the melenzane al parmigiana is epic, the crespelle.., well don't get me started. the chilli flakes, if you know your chilli flakes are special. The staff are great. What more can I say? It's my favourite restaurant in London.

Sollys

great food, and great prices when eating at the bar. have been going for years, but the service which used to be terrible, then improved has reverted to terrible. the staff are obnoxious, miserable and offensive . asking them for something is like asking for a favour. if you don't let that get to you, it's worth going to for the food.
