This is a fantastic gem of a restaurant. The owner is very friendly and makes a mean cocktail. We have eaten here numerous times and the food is outstanding. A must!

Lovely evening in this new-ish restaurant. Doesn't look like much from the outside but the food's delicious, reasonably priced and very tasty. Staff are lovely. Highly recommended!

We had the lemon sole (delicious!) and veggie burger with a bottle of chenin blanc and we left two empty plates! And we had a complimentary limoncello to round off the night. Would like to see this lovely spot busier on a Friday night.

I went to meet an old friend to have a meal and drinks before going to a match at the Emirates. It was quiet when we arrived but filled up later.
The staff were welcoming and attentive without being too obtrusive.
Although the menu is limited the food was really good and well presented. Our steaks were done to perfection .
I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant .

The food was delicious (we had seafood linguine and cod fish cakes), and the wine we ordered were so elegant and served in really nice wine glasses. Service was friendly and warm. Would go back again.

Great restaurant addition to the area. Food was fantastic, fresh ingredients cooked perfectly. Wine by the carafe is always a good option to have. The steaks were great but will be back to try the sea bass which looked exceptional.

Very good food and wine at reasonable prices. Portions generous– sides not needed.
Noise level can be high when restaurant is full but tables are well spaced. Very friendly but not effusive Albanian host. Great find in an area that is certainly not foodie heaven.

One of the best meals I've had in London. The chestnut soup with truffle oil was outstanding, and the salmon was perfectly cooked. The service was outstanding - and the French Shiraz recommended to us paired perfectly with the food. I strongly recommend this restaurant -- it's a gem!

Second time at this restaurant, and standard continues to be excellent. Visited with four colleagues on a Monday for lunch. We ordered from both the main and Christmas menus. Can personally heartily recommend the heritage beetroot starter. For main, three of us had the braised feather blade beef with mustard mash, and we all couldn't praise it enough. Other mains tried and thoroughly enjoyed were the Christmas turkey and fish of the day. Puddings - salted dark choc torte and bread & butter - were gorgeous too. All this with fantastic service and great atmosphere.

Attending the nearby Emirates for a match and coming in from outside the area, found this relatively new restaurant with good reviews. Lived up to expectations and ticked all the boxes for an early dinner. Good quality food for a reasonable price. Smart, clean and very nice service from the attentive service staff. Would visit again when back in the city.
