We popped in here to have a quick bite to eat. We had great food which was very quickly prepared was tasty and the staff were very friendly. It is a self service restaurant where you take a ticket which runs up a tab.

The people serving were terrible. It looked like they were doing you a favor. Asked for drinks and the fridge was broken. Food was ok. The tables are terrible uncomfortable. You got much better places near by.

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite

Laid back, buzzy restaurant, loved for its freshly made pasta, pizza and salad dishes. Pick up a card on the way in, choose your dish from the counters and watch it made in front of you. Pay on the way out.
