This place was heavily advertised. My expectations were become unattainable by the time I arrived. It was very clean. The wait staff was friendly. They made my solo visit pleasant. A magazine was given to me. The live music was quiet. He lovely voice was background music. The plates were an odd shape. The wine list was varied and complete.... More

Had a meal here with my brother, we are staying at the Holiday inn across the way, for a hospital visit in the morning. The meal was fantastic, we had fishcakes, Vietnamese spring rolls, then beef randang, coconut prawns, bak choi, and steamed rice. Aromatic, subtle, tasty food - we were impressed, it's a cut above the Asian restaurants where... More

My wife really likes Thai and Malaysian food and despite the fact I am not a great fan we decided to visit this restaurant. We were just slightly put off by the fact that the restaurant was part of the dining area for Crowne Plaza hotel, however we let that slide. It was a really good decision. The food was... More

We ordered 2 starter and 2 mains. The food was excellent, the flavours were great and we were given a choice on ordering mild,... More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner during our trip to London. Chiara was amazing and made sure we were well tended to. Diverse menu with great eats. I had the pad Thai (great noodles) and my husband had the mee goreng. The hot towels were an added bonus. Would definitely recommend!

We arrived at the restaurant and were a little underwhelmed by the decor. However were greeted by Sanne who was very friendly and helpful. We ordered the tempura lychees and the spring rolls and a Tom Yum. What stood out was that the tom Yum was very light and tasty and that the prawns were not over cooked, which would... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
