Kyms

I went there several times and really enjoy the food (crispy duck etc).

The service was nothing but professional, no complain. Good and abundant food for correct price > good mark for a central London restaurant.

The Cinnamon Club

I went once in the evening.

Some meals very good (the crab risotto) and other rather strange (king prawns).

Service professional (a lot of waiters but perhaps somewhat desorgenized when too many clients, we waited a bit for our starters).

Rather expensive (>20£ the main course, 10£ the starters) and if I didn't like the atmosphere I would think twice before going again.

Not in love but I may come back.

Patara (South Kensington)

After reviewing some comments, it seems that the quality food depends on meals.

I tried some and enjoyed very much my choices.

Good atmosphere, good service. Perhaps one of the best in the Thai category I tried in London. Be ready for some spices.

Mango Tree

Good Thai restaurant, with a nice "trendy" atmosphere. I suggest the basic meals (such as chicken satay, green curry) as I was very disappointed when I tried other meals.

To give some benchmarks: far better than the Thai Square but perhaps less good than Patara.

Kiku

I went there several times (only at lunch time) and really like this place.

Very good Japanese food (I gave an 8/10 only because a 10/10 is for Michelin stars, but fresh ingredients etc.).

I like the service -doesn't bother repeating several times my orders- as the waitress are smiling. Good Japanese (simple and straightforward) atmosphere.

The Kiku menu is at 18£ (plenty of sushis, tempura, yakitori, miso soup and pickles) and definitly a 10/10 value (especially in Mayfair).

Not sure I will bring my girflfriend for a romantic dinner though.

Osteria dell'Arancio

I went thre times there. Great Italian atmosphere, kind of simple but good restaurant.

The problem is that the price (>20£ for the main course) doesn't fit this simplicity.

In a less trendy place, we could expect this quality to match a far more decent price.
