I went here a few years ago and had very fond memories, so I was really looking forward to returning for a weekend lunch. Unfortunately I left fairly disappointed. We ate from the fixed-price menu, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the food might have been better from the a la carte menu - but for me that is incredibly disappointing and says pretty poor things about the restaurant and the chef. But on the other hand, the a la carte food may have been just as ordinary! The food was by no means horrible, but it was simply nothing special, and the same was true for the service. For what they charge, you could do better elsewhere.

If you like good food then you would be a fool not to eat here during the 50% offer! And if you miss that, go anyway, because it's still decent value. The menu is interesting and fairly varied, and the food is really top quality. If you like fish this is definitely a good place to come - my husband and I eat fish but not meat and often end up having almost no choice - but here we were spoilt for choice. I had the sole and my husband had the tuna (that night's special), we shared them both and they were both divine. The vegetables that accompanied them were incredibly tasty and cooked to perfection. As for the desserts....I had the creme brulee, which was really really delicious, and my husband had the cheesecake, which was some of the best cheesecake I have ever tasted...The service was excellent, and our waiter really knew what he was talking about when it came to the wines.

In short, I would highly recommend going to this place, because whilst the offer is on I do not think you will eat such good food for so little anywhere else in London!

I only gave the place 7 for atmosphere because I didn't love the music that was playing, and it is not the most beautiful setting...but it didn't really matter because the food and wine were more than distracting!!

This is my local sushi place - the sushi is really delicious - my only complaint would be that they don't do takeaway sushi! The other food is nice too, though a bit-over priced I think. The sushi is not bad value though. Definitely recommended for sushi.

We live just down the road from the restaurant and go there all the time. The food is very high quality and really tasty. The staff are very accomodating as well. The buffet is great - although the prices for the buffet have increased over the last couple of years, I still think it's good value - there's always a good range of food.
