Adam also recommended I should visit Soho to see the bridge, the clientèle at this store are definitely very Soho and the bridge was impressive.

This store amongst the hubbub of Soho's pubs had a giant florescent Barci in the window, unfortunately the lights were falling off it and it needs a lot of care, attention and fixing. The entrance itself is on the corner of the building and is into a large geometrical tiled till and service area where you can order and wait for your take away or queue to order your meal. There was also a row of window facing chairs against the window table each seat with its own number for individuals to sit alone and eat whilst looking out the window. From here you can either enter the depths of the cellar down some steps or cross the glass bridge that goes over the opening to the cellar.

The upper area has some impressive artwork on the walls and the view of the broken Barci in the window. There is a beverage station and sauce stand up here and it was quite clean. Down stairs there was a second till area, much seating in the middle, there were booths in the side wall which could be in the vaults of the cellar. The toilets were also in the cellar and were very clean and black tiled and impressively spacious for under ground London toilets.

The chicken had a charred skin which I'm not keen on, the coleslaw was ok and the chip portion was very messily small, luckily I had also ordered a bread roll but it wasn't the warm soft roll I had imagined when I ordered more a cold hard affair.

The store does look good but wouldn't return with the food as it was.
