Went to this restaurant for a quick, comforting meal and end up eating the worst lassaña ever. It was over cooked, expensive (£17) and too tomato tasted. Not worth it...

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
