This central London store is close to the heart of it being not far from Trafalgar square and the national portrait gallery. This store is amoungst a few others including a Mexican I quite liked the look of. From the road it doesn't look too impressive and as you enter you would imagine you were in an upmarket coffee house with a spiral stair desending to the depths below. You are kept up here by the greeter who was very polite and who allowed me to ditch my luggage behind the coffee bar counter. When there is space below and a seater awaiting you are called to descend down the spiral stairs to meet the next member of staff who takes you to your seat. This subteranian underworld is like a cavern with a large rack of tills interesting architectural features and several small rooms off which feature as booths, ideal either for small parties or by their apperance lap dancing.
Service was an average amount of time, the chips were of a good size and hot, the chicken the typical London miniture version but this is more blame to the surpliers than the stores. The blight on my meal was that my salad was partialy wilted which was a cause of concern to myself.
This store on whole does impress and I would return due to its location and impressive appearance.
