The restaurant is centred round a theatre-island kitchen where you can watch the chefs prepare their succulent creations.

“Lots of variety - variable quality”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

All you can eat buffet with lots of variety @ £14.95 a head. Some things where great (particularly the Chicken Tikka) but some where not. Ok if you want a good feed and there's a few of you. No sure i'd go back.

“Awful staff”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Me and my 5 friends went here. They sat us down even knowing that they had taken more than half of the food away. We were stuck paying £16 each for cold food that looked like it had been sitting there for a while. Also there were only about 4 dishes on offer all only indian. When we complained the staff including the manager became very rude and aggressive. So we left £16 down and hungry!!

“Fantastic international restaurant in King Cross Area”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

It´s one of my favourites in the area, International food (chinese, thai, Indian, italian), excellent quality and very good choice. They are cheaper for lunch than for dinner(15 pounds). The wines menu has very reasonable prices. The staff are great and the deco is very modern and cool.

“Great variety of food, well laid out, reasonably priced”
Reviewed 19 December 2011

I've been here a number of times and it's consistently good.

If you like being able to see your food cooked - you'll like this place. If you like being able to sample of fairly wide variety of food (Indian, Thai, Italian, Chinese) then you'll also like this place.

For Thai dishes in particular, it's nice to be able to select your own meat, veg and dressings and then watch the chefs cook it in front of you. The Indian dishes are kept in warming trays so you can just help yourself. OK - not as glamorous as having a chef cook it - but they have always tasted fine to me. The ability to go up numerous times to top your plate up means you can try different dishes and mixes as well. A good place to go with friends for a reasonably priced, varied afternoon / evening meal.
