Someone recommended this place for their great wine collection and the tasting menu. So we went to this pretty chic “underground” restaurant in the Piccadilly Circus area. The restaurant also has a lounge and a nightclub. Its…entrance is rather less noticeable.
Our strawberry Champagne cocktail to start the dinner.
Nice & warm bread and good small raw oysters.
The tasting menu has about 5 courses but each course is a mix of two small plates.
The not on the menu bonus of the evening – mushroom and bean curd and some egg.
There were quite a few dishes and flavors for most of them are quite good. The portions of these small plates are quite small though so if you’re looking for a big meal, you’d probably need to order other dishes.
You could see chef preparing your dish from the balcony seats.
The dessert has some interesting add ons (in terms of flavors). We had three people so we got three different kinds of dessert.
The dishes and dessert selections are quite a mix and match (so there goes the surprise element!). The interior is also a very different scene.
