I was taken to Chapter One for a business lunch last week and enjoyed the experience very much. My host tells me the set lunch menu is very reasonably priced, although I'm not sure just how much it was.
It has fairly recently been redecorated, i believe and the dining area was light and open with a very pleasant atmosphere. The mood was relaxed with a mix of diners.
The waiting staff were attentive without being pushy and the food was very good. All in all, a very pleasant lunch and a restuarant I would certainly recommend for a quality dining experience without having to fight your way into London.
I'll certainly go again.

Food 8 | Service 8 | Atmosphere 8 | Value for money 8
Maybe we've been spoilt by our two previous visits to Gordon Ramsay's 68 Royal Hospital Road Restaurant but our first experience of dining at Claridges was a bit of a disappointment.
We took some friends there for lunch on Saturday and felt the service and quality of food was not at all what we had expected.
The setting and decor are splendid and the atmosphere just what you would expect from a busy West End Hotel but we were constantly being pressed to move on to the next course and were eventually ushered into the lounge to take coffeee (a corridor between two dining areas !) rather than continue to savour the surroundings in the beautiful Dining Room...and yet half an hour later our dining table was still empty ! Why the rush ?
There were numerous other differences between the two Restaurants which were disappointing.......Pop in and sort them out, Gordon, I'm sure it should be much better than this !

Went here for lunch yesterday with two friends and all three of us agreed that this was, without a doubt, the best Indian food we had ever tasted.
Not the usual Indian menu at all. The presentation of the food mixed with the exquisite flavours and complimented by the wonderful location made this a memorable experience.
The set price menu is very reasonably priced and we found the waiting staff polite, attentive and eager to serve.
We will certainly go back one evening when we have more time and sample more of this exciting and innovative menu.
