Kokeb Ethiopian Cuisine

Not sure if I'm allowed to do this as I have reviewed it once before . I love this place the food is outstanding and the service form the terrific lady is the best ever . I have a ball every time I come here and I try to ensure if I'm in London I get to it . I wanted to give it 11 out of 10 last time can I make it 12 ?

Il Castelletto

Small restaurant near the British Museum , I had Pizza , garlic bread and wine and it was reasonably priced . The pizza was Ok quite good but nothing special and the service was not bad . Nothing outstanding but in a pince somewhere to go .

Chop Chop Noodle Bar

Great place for an inexpensive lunch . Lots of food well cooked and well presented , very good value for money . I had prk noodle soup and side order of spare ribs ( didn't need bot soup was filling on it's own ) and a soft drink and iit wwas well under £10 if I'd just stuck to soup and drink it would have been about £5 so you won't break the bank here , enjoyed it os go in take it for what it is and I don't think you will be dissapointed .

Gem Restaurant

Went on a Wed in Feb in credit crunch and it was very busy so if you go you might like to book aahead . The Kurdish flatbreads ( free ) were divine and I thought I was relly in for a treat , but the rest never quite lived up to the initial promise , lamb kebabs to start were nice but not outstanding and my main course of chicken cooked in creaym mushroom sauce was let down by what looked and tatsed like oven ready chips served wit it . The meal wasn't bad it just didn't quite do it for me . The price was fine ( £25 inc wine ) and service spot on but I left slightly dissapointed . I might have been unlucky and would consider returning .

Shah Tandoori Restaurant

Pleasant restaurant and not overly expensive . The food was tasty but the lamb on my main course could have been a cooked a little more it was a bit chewy .Had two courses and three glasses of wine for about £25 . The service was efficent but maybe they could have looked a little happier , Overall not bad not brilliant , would I go again , possibly !

Kolossi Grill

Great restaurant excellent friendly service and georgeous food > I had the Greek chiken soup to start ( divine ) and mixed grill ( beautifuly tender and succculent ) and also inc in the pricde was a nice refresshing desert of fresh fruit , all this plus two glasses of wine cost just under £23 which I consider excellent value . One of the best greek restaurants I have been to anywhere and I will definatly go again next time I'm in London .

Beity

Went to this restaurant on Fri 14 nov and it was very quiet . I have neverr had Lebanese food before so went with the waiors recomendation of a mixed meze starter and mixed grill kebab . What a let down , the started was very bland and ordianry and the mixed kebeb grill I could have had anywhere . I also had 2 glasses of wine and the bill came to £36 inc a 12.5 % service charge I didn't knw about . Frankly i felt ripped off and it has put me off Lebanese food for good . I also overheard that they don't take plastic for anything under £10 . I will never eat here again ! Now i know why it was so quiet .

Kokeb Ethiopian Cuisine

Well this pace is wonderful more like a night at at your best friends than a restaurant . i had never had Etheopian food before but the lady there ( owner waitress and friend ) was great she helped me through the menu even reccomending something less expensive than the one I origainally wanted . Had vegatable souo t o star and Lamb tibba with Etheopain bread to follow . All were wonderful aand the bread was lovely and lemony . I had a grwt time ona wet horrid Thur and will most defiantly be back next time I'm in London . If you want to give this type of food atry go here as you will have a wonderful night out . I would score all of it 11 out of 10 if I could .

The Four Lanterns

Pleasent restaurant , friendly staff and nice atmosphere . the food however was distinctly average . had ( slightly ) rubbery calamari followed by very ordianry Sea Bream ( reccomended ) . It wasn't terrible just very run of the mill and at £25 for what i had ( plus 1 glass of wine ) not greast value either sorry .

Thang Long

My very firat experience of Vietnamese food and definatly not my last . I asked the lady serving me for help with the menu and she was terrific . i ended up having the pancake ( stuffed with mince and prawns ) for starters and Sea bass for the main meal plus tropical fruit salad . It was lovely nicely cooked and presented . I also had 2 g;lasses of wine and coffe all for about £20 which I think is terrific value for money . I would highly reccomend it .
