We’ve been to the restaurant before and thought it was ok. Really poor experience here today though. Order was put in wrong so starters and mains all turned up at once. (They did take the starters off the bill). My main was utterly revolting- fish tacos- I could even finish one. My side of Brussels sprouts fried with bacon and cranberry also disgusting- salty, oily and tasted burnt.
Drinks menu very limited. Hugely inflated prices properly due to location. You’ll find something much better in this fabulous part of London.

My friends and I went for lunch over the long weekend. It took ages to get served, we had to ask to order twice, we had to ask for water many times and we had to remind them for the extras we ordered. The restaurant was busy but there seemed to be enough staff walking around so we were quite disappointed in need to jump out of seats to get the attention of staff steering clear of eye contact. They did not look happy to serve.

The fried chicken was extremely salty and quite pink - we all had upset stomachs afterwards.

Busy and bustling restaurant with a great interior and nice atmosphere. The staff are friendly and very efficient. The menu is varied so there are a lot of options but the signature dish seems to be chicken and waffles. The portions are very generous. Flavours are good and exceptional quality for the price. The fried chicken tacos were absolutely outstanding, the mix and balance of flavours were delicious. Good variety of cocktails as well.

Really yummy food, loved the fried chicken and the cheeseburger dumplings are utterly delicious. We were served by Katrina who was great, we were a large group and a couple of our party were somewhat “friendly but boisterous” and she dealt with us brilliantly.

Will definitely be back.

Hey there :)

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We're hoping that you're self titling yourselves as 'friendly but boisterous' and that wasn't our Katrina calling you that! ;) Glad her service was as brilliant as always and we'll pass on the message. :)

See you again soon for more great comfort food and cocktails?
