If you’re looking for somewhere in the heart of Covent Garden that isn’t rammed to the rafters with tourists or completely overpriced head to Henry’s cafe bar to sample its sophisticated menu. I ended up here one work day lunchtime with my friend Matt and his mum. As I didn’t have long it had to be somewhere nearby and we stumbled across this place. It doesn’t look like much from the outside but it is a lot bigger than it looks and the section at the back is beautifully lit thanks to the skylight.
We were told to take a seat wherever we liked and were quickly given menus and had our drinks order taken. The menu is varied with something for everyone and a reasonable price for the area. There was even, perhaps, a little too much choice as I struggled to make up my mind (not an uncommon thing with me!) before eventually deciding on the green Thai chicken curry with coriander & coconut fragrant rice. It was divine and just thinking about it right now is making me salivate!
The portion size was perfect, the spice was just right and the company was great which made for a very enjoyable meal. The service too was to be commended and they were more than helpful with getting our meals and the bill to us quickly so I could get back to work on time. They have a fairly extensive cocktail list as well so I feel a return trip should be on the cards fairly soon!
