I've now been to Thali several times and every experience has been exceptional. Great recommendations from the staff on food selection, brilliant flavors, nice setting. Not your neighborhood curry house, much better and with much more complex dishes and flavors. Recommend it highly. More

We visited Min Jiang for lunch to celebrate by daughters DofE Gold award presentation at Buckingham Palace along with my wife's birthday and absolutely everything was perfect and amazing. They even got presented with special deserts with congratulations and happy birthday on. It was at the higher end of the price scale but well worth the money and the view is also very nice. Would recommend. More

What a dining experience. We could only get seats on the counter at my time of booking but actually that’s where you want to sit if only two people as you get to see the chefs at work. The sushi was unbelievable. I mean so fresh and just delicious. The best I’ve had in a long while. The grilled pork belly just melted in your mouth. The service was outstanding. A truly fantastic night out. More

Very upscale with sleek decor. My companion commented that the drinks menu was a work of art, and I have to say, the cocktail I choose was the most beautifully presented I had ever seen and tasted as fantastic as it looked. The staff accommodated us (without reservations) so graciously. We were seated within 15 minutes but we were expecting a 1 hour wait. Food was excellent. Highly recommended. More

Latin American | Kensington, West London

The food was fabulous. Tasty and beautifully presented. What was really disappointing was the service. We were on the ground floor, only table being served until some people came in for drinks. There were 2 waiters for us and the 3 tables outside. There were 4 of us and we were all working. Being different food it took a little while to decide what we wanted. I had to get up and go and ask the waiters to take our orders. And then after the starters after waiting a considerable time I had to get up and go and ask the waiter where were our main courses. The food then came instantly. I then had to get up again to ask for coffee. We were only drinking water, but I had to keep asking for another bottle. When one of my guests said "no thank you when he was pouring the water, he carried on pouring. I am going again and if it is bad again I won't go back. A huge disappointment, the ambience, decor and food were amazing, just let down by the staff. More

What drew me to La Fortuna is that it’s not part of a chain - it’s small, but with full menu. Menu relatively small, meaning that food is cooked from scratch. It fitted the bill perfectly for an early evening Saturday meal. More

Good service, good food. The only negative was that they don't just add 10% to the bill as a service charge, but it is not clear on the bill or explained to you, and they also ask you if you wish to tip them when you pay with a card. This is dishonest. It was only because I saw the small print at the end of the bill I didn't tip twice. What is the 10% service added for if not for good service?! More
