Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

This central London store is on a very well known roundabout and as such doesn't really have scope for parking but is relatively well serviced by public transport.

Outside the store benefits from some exterior seatng which is hedged in by larg planters and a couple of potted trees at the entrance way. Inside the store is a lot brighter and more homely since it has had its refurb. The Serving hatch is right in front of you and there is space for people awaiting takeaway, the seating is either sidwith some good paintings and some pots that look plastic but which were up high so I could be wrong.

The toilets were a trek away downstairs and were what let the store down, the bin was lacking a lid and lacking a linner bag, the floor was quite dirty, perhaps a little bit of attention down here as upstairs was spot on decor wise.

The chicken was hot, large and perfectly cooked, rare to get a treat like this in a London store but my succulent breast was as good a it gets. Chips were also plentiful and hot and very enjoyable, the Rice was about standard.

The staff despite freindly never came to check if my meal was ok (though it was) nor to offer to sell me a dessert (I was looking forward to my naughty Nata) and as such after a while of having beverage top ups I left with my Barci still on my table, they did say good bye to me at the door though.

This is definately a store to visit if your in London.
