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

The closest parking to this store is the NCP on Gerrard Street which is a whopping £3.50 per hour, I managed to get a on street parking slot further down Gerrard Street at a more reasonable £3.10 for the maximum 2 hours.

The Store in the town centre is very compact and quite a tight fit, the toilets involve a trek to the back, round the corner down the stairs back on yourself and back up some steps in the basement. Upright dining chairs and tables abound as the best way to squeeze people in.

Staff were friendly enough, they did manage to get my order wrong, when I'd requested a breast they tried to bring me a blackened burnt Leg, which I rejected as the wrong order before it made it onto my table, fortunately after a bit of chasing up and the awkwardness of my freinds not wanting to finish their meals before mine arrived the right order came out, this time succulent and cooked spot on. The benefit if a small store is we could watch them taking the burnt leg off my plate with their fingers and putting it back in the warming draw below the grill. I sure pity the person who would of got that.

Ample portion which I struggled to finish after sharing a houmous.
