The curry laksa was very good too as well as beef noodles. I did not try the sushi though. However the pad thai was a little sweet. A touch of lime juice did improve the flavor

I stopped here after a business meeting and found the restaurant very accommodating. They are located in the basement which creates a cool atmosphere. The kitchen is on display which also adds to the ambience. I had the sashimi salad which was very good. The salad was crisp and fresh, and the fish was a mix of salmon, tuna and... More

The food was quite filling but not too keen on the atmosphere,not friendly and could have a bit more drink choices. Prices reasonably but overall have had nicer friendlier places to go to.

I haven't been for two years but had a good memory. I was very disappointed this time - the starters were oily and very measly when compared the prices being paid. luckily we hadn't ordered our mains so we paid the bill and left... wasn't a great experience - not likely to go back...

It's in a windowless, loud basement room -- not ideal for a nice spring day. Packed for the lunch service, we ended up waiting over half an hour for our order. Staff very busy but not very efficient. When our order finally arrived, the fish was nice but the sushi rice was warm (was our order held up because of... More

Was meeting friends for late lunch there When I arrived and joined them, took me forever to place my drink order There were a few waiters hanging around but any time someone came over to clean our table, they didn't even bother checking if we wanted to order anything else! Finally managed to order the Prawns starter, which came quickly... More

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
