The service was really good, our waitress Sanne could not have been more lovely, she made all the difference. The lycee and prawn starter was delicious. Swift service, good atmosphere and fair prices for Kensington.

Trust me, I grew up there. I especially like the big fresh prawns, rich flavor soup, just right consistency and spiciness (this one doesn't make me cry ;) The restaurant itself is very comfortable. And my waitress, Sanne is a very sweet person who always smiles. I am a greedy girl who want a big table all for myself, haha..... More

Couldn't fault the food or the service, excellent. A little pricey but i guess you expect that on Valentines day.

This place is awful. The waiters are incompetent, badly organized, slow and shady (the head waiter is almost embarrassing). They hard sold us some appetizer snacks, making it look like there was time to wait for the dishes, and then brought everything at the same time, of course forgetting the drinks. Impossible to finish their spicy chips, if they ask... More

Fresh food, very tasty and excellent service. Evelyn and the rest of the team did a fantastic job. The children's menus were good and the size of the adult portions was generous. Would not hesitate to visit again

The restaurant belongs to the Crown Plaza Hotel and actually looks like a Hotel Restaurant with little personality . It was half empty and considering that most of the other restaurants I tried to book were full those days ( 7-9 December ) , I was negatively influenced from the beginning . We tried several proposals ,mostly Thai , but... More

Visited for business. Two of us had the coconut curry shrimp, which was a chefs special, it was amazing. The spicy, creamy curry was delicious, and the shrimp melted in your mouth! I enjoy Thai cuisine and this was a wonderful restaurant for Asian fusion .

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.
