This restaurant is on trendy Charlotte Street in central London and is popular amongst the suited lunching brigade. It's always quite busy with a fairly wide menu, just that little bit more interesting than the usual noodle bar.

There's also the possibilty of outside seating, but you'll certainly need to book this in advance on a good weather day.

Staff are friendly enough, but beware of the 10% service charge automatically added. Just means you pay what's on the bill and nothing more. In fairness to them, the menu states that this will be shared between the staff though I always worry if this means the wages are going to be even lower...

I believe they also do take-away/delivery.

Favorite Dish: Best deal is the lunch time menu, where two courses costs 7.50, with plenty of options. The fishcakes are gorgeous, and that's coming from someone who isn't big on seafood. I then had the Penang Curry with beef and steamed rice which was just spicy enough without being too spicy for a mid afternoon lunch. Plenty of vegetarian options available too.

Eating from the set lunch menu and drinking soft drinks will set you back a total of about 10 pounds.

Eating from the main menu at any other time will set you back around 8.00 for a main course.
