Taken here by son and DIL who live in London and eat out regularly. We loved this place. Food was fantastic and we chose many different dishes that were not too large, so we could share. We often over-order, but the portions were just right...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
