....environment and friendly staff. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and the food. Although slightly modified for the western palette, the food is still fantastic. Wouldn't mind going back again.

We were celebrating a birthday party in the Freddie Mercury dome of the Secret Winter Garden and our expectations were met with a unique ambiance, tasty food and a very attentive staff, excellently managed by Ashraf, who made this night unforgettable!

Lovely atmosphere and absolutely fantastic service, George deserves a special mention as looked after us superbly. The crispy duck was cooked to perfection but chicken udon soup wasn't as impressive but nonetheless will definitely return soon!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Well it depends what you order. Your meal can be as cheap as £12-15 for a one meal dish like Curry Laksa or Mee Goreng.
