The Malt House

Visited as part of a work Christmas lunch, paid approx £40 for food alone and left hungry on account of portions a child would query.

Patisserie Valerie

We ate at the Old Compton St one yesterday around 7pm. We had to wait to be seated and then further to be served. There was one girl working the ground floor, but she was great. The food was nice as ever. They need to employ more staff!

We were a party of 6 (2 children, 4 adults)

Itsu (Soho)

I love this place. Its the combination of the moving dishes, subdued lighting and efficient staff that make it a real favourite. The choice of dish may not be massive, but it seems to be done well every time.

Pierre Victoire

Ate here last week - Saturday's set lunch seemed like good value. We used to be regulars years ago but things have changed...

The service was efficient but the food was patchy. The starters were tasty but two mains were not sufficient in size to feed an adult. The pork was tasty but only came with a small amount of cabbage - we got the impression that they wanted you to order more vegetables, which was of course an extra charge in addition to the set menu cost. My beef stroganov was just ok but the chips that came with it were inedible. They tasted like poor supermarket oven chips!

Still hungry, we ordered a desert and coffee each and what started as a £6.90 lunch ended up as more than £20 a head.

They can do better.

HK Diner

Decided to eat here as a result of reading reviews on this site.

I have to say that we were not overly impressed. The food was mediocre, service was slow and we waited ages for drinks, the smell downstairs was disgusting and the loos were not clean. I don't see the point of a return visit.

Our party consisted of 3 adults and a child.
