Got here just before 6 and it was quiet. Once it started to get busy round 7 the staff could not cope and it all became painfully slow. The food however was nice. Would not return particularly.

This place caught my wife and I hungry and tired after arriving to London on holidays, near our hotel, and really were not impressed by the deli-like furniture and decoration, but then every single dish and drink they delivered was really good. I took a seafood risotto, which was nothing short of sublime, I don't remember having eaten a risotto... More

Why go to an Italian restaurant? for Italian food I would have thought!! Oh No, not at ASK. Ask for a Risotto and get a bowl (with good flavour) made by boiling rice and adding a sauce. NOT using Arborio or Carnoli rice. I can get this abuse of food in an english restaurant but did not expect it from... More

Good service - prompt, helpful and polite. Very average food, but the chilli oil helped to liven up my main dish at least. The restaurant itself is a bit dated, and the furnishings aren't particularly comfortable, but the food is reasonably priced and it's a good location for Baker Street station.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
