The Brickhouse

Visited mid-afternoon Sunday- 3 course for £24 incl coffee. Wifes birthday- really enjoyed the place and the food. In terms of the actual food definetly amongst the best weve ever had.

Started off a bit worringly with a confusing pile of menu booklets and a very pleasant waitress who clearly had only recently started working there.

Starter, mains, dessert all excellent incl brocollli soup/tuna/salmon/lamp/apple tart- all good quality ingredients, some good ideas and perfectly cooked. Great mojitos and peach bellinis also.

Not sure how it would be on a busy evening but can tell you the food was genuinely great(and apparently the main chef wasnt working that day!)

Eastern Palace

Went here with wife based solely on these reviews (also noted another good review on a different website). Just back from the restaurant and felt i had to write a review.

8pm Saturday evening, 3 tables occupied out of about 20. Service was OK, appeared to be run by a family as stated below. Ordered the more expensive version of the meal for 2, so feel able to comment on the overall standard of food.

Almost every part of the meal was way below the average you would expect from a Chinese restaurant.

Hors d'oeuvre generally bad and no sauce at all! Asked for satay sauce which was again pretty awful and also noted they charged us £1.50 for the sauce on the bill- beggars belief really. Crispy duck was edible but again below average. Mains were generally big quantities but bad quality.

Noted a bit omininously as we walked in, a sticker stating the restaurant was on this website. I doubt anyone in the world would write this is the best restaurant in London, unless you actually work there/own it.
