It is like a little bit of France in Sandwich. Very quaint you would think you were going up stairs to bedrooms but come across an oldie worldie room full of tables. Delicious food and a little bit different.

We weren't expecting too much when we visited Sandwich to grab a bite to eat but what a wonderful surprise to find the No Name Shop Bistro. You walk through the small deli downstairs and up into a light and airy restaurant upstairs. We had the platter of French-style pates/rillettes to start which was all excellent and really set you...

....athough you can of course people watch and see the lovely array of delicacies on display. We had stopped by for an afternoon coffee and cake / tart and although we received a warmish welcome our coffee arrived in paper cups with the sugar already added. Also our two commercially produced tarts were served with plastic forks to eat with... More

I was a large number of people and we had booked tables. Although things were a bit late starting, the meal was worth the wait.

We were in Sandwich on a Sunday afternoon, looking for a lunch spot and not having much luck (some were already closers, others full or not what we were in the mood for). We stumbled across Le Bistro, and were so glad we did. What a terrific place. We ordered quiches and baguettes from the downstairs delicatessen, and everything was... More

Lovely coffee and croissant in the upstairs bistro. The deli downstairs is fab and sells a tempting array of mediterranean goodies.

I was glad to see that most of the negative reviews of this charming little place were penned a long time ago, and that most of the really positive ones were very recent or at least within the last few months. Why? Well obviously, I totally agree with them - this is a delightful place, with a very well stocked... More

We called on spec. and received a warm welcome. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and the waitress who served us had a great smile. We had the borguignon and the Basque chicken dishes and both were full of flavour and well presented. I would have enjoyed an alcgnohol free beer but they didn't stock it - never mind you... More

A real treasure trove of French delicacies. Superb croissants and breads, large selection of quiches, incredible selection of cheeses probably more than 50, plus some beautiful hand made pottery. I have not visited anywhere so authentic this side of the channel, and as a bonus the staff are very friendly and helpful.

No Name Shop is the best place in Sandwich (and SE Kent) for real French food. And Le Bistro is the restaurant with the shop. Great baguettes, wonderful food and genuine French cheeses. Great place for lunch in Sandwich.
