A wonderful find! The food was first class and the service exceptional. We will definitely book to come here again. I had previously advised that this was a post graduation, pre-theatre booking so we were on a tight schedule and this was confirmed to us...More

Trendiest Thai restaurant I've ever been to. Wouldn't describe the menu as traditional Thai but there was something for everyone and the food was fantastic. Service was excellent. On the downside, it's quite noisy and you'll need a torch to read and the menu but...More

True to Crazy Bear form it's a crazy place, ridiculously opulent! Food was gorgeous, had the twin lobster tails - delicious. The toilets are brilliant - I don't want to ruin it here - sounds weird but make sure you visit the loo!

The venue itself is stunning although downstairs is quite dark but it gives a night club feeling. The toilets have to be seen to be believed, almost surreal and I mean this in a good way. The staff are very attentive and enthusiastic. As for...More

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite
