This was so good I went there 3 nights in succession! Immense service, food quality and clean environment. Working in London has its benefits and the eateries are one. Chiswick is a forgotten part of London but good for workers who want convenience and quality....More

leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated

As someone said.. the place is small and the tables are very close, there is a little more space in the inner room. I would suggest calling first and asking them to hold a table where wheelchair can be placed
