All reader reviews by Susan Percy
Seeing only two other reviews on this site, both giving mybar Chelsea 10 out of 10 for everything, I was a little skeptical. However, it is a lovely place. The decor is at once fashionable, stunning and welcoming. Looks like a posh house, styled for a magazine. Starters were excellent: we had spring rolls that were fresh and juicy on the inside and perfectly crispy on the outside. The hummus was flavourful and the serving of pita bread was generous (which I find too rare at other places!). We then had sandwiches that were served with a salad garnish, including sweet cherry tomatoes - perfectly fresh and ripe. Only a couple of points of criticism: my ham and cheese sandwich was a little bland (could have used some butter), though my partner very much enjoyed his club sandwich. It was surprisingly quiet for a Friday lunch - we were the only customers! However, the chill-out music gave a sense of atmosphere. Service was faultless.
