Went their with friends to try some of the dessert options. Cakes are delicious. Serving of some other deserts is quite big so try to share. Staff was very friendly. The seating place outside is very spacious and comfortable.

Had an amazing experience at the symposium in London. The 5 dollar burger deal is amazing. Also the 4 dollar beer deal isn't too shabby. Overall, no complaints and great service from the waitress (Morgan) that I had.
