The Peasant

Spent the best part of Saturday afternoon enjoying the nice bar food and drinks served at the Peasant. I now wish I had booked the upstairs restaurant offering more unsual dishes. that'll be for next time ...

Nice staff. Nice interior with some original features, such as mosaique floor, part tiling on the walls

Masala Zone (Soho)

I booked my birthday party there, 7th December. A friend looked after the reservation aspect and this went smoothly etc....

The food was nice, standard indian menu items, nicely cooked...

What disappointed me is that before the food arrived we were left about one hour without anything to eat and no possibility to order extras, such as poppadums, nanns etc...I was starving. The wine was quite warm. The service was nice enough but must knock points down because of the previous points mentionned.

The party room itself was not very Christmassy, there was not really any atmosphere. But that's a personal view, I think upstairs is nicer. I felt we were a bit left to our own devices.

If you want a nice idian meal, then I recommend it for the food but maybe not for a party.

My husband and I are always looking for new Thai restaurants, following a few disappointemnts over the years from top Thai restaurants.

We decided to try Benja because we were satisfied with the many good reviews this site gave.

And we were right to trust these reviews, we had a most fantastic meal there, last Thursday, 6th December.

The menu offers unusual dishes, such as frogslegs and typical Thai dishes but yet re-invented and/or improved.

I thought the price was quite good

For 120 Pounds for 2 we had the following:

2x Champagne cocktail

Bottled water

4x beers

3x starters

2x soups

2x main courses (rice is included)

1x Dessert/Coffee

I think that's pretty good.

The service was very friendly and professional
