Nine of us from the office had the express lunch - very good quality and value. The Tom Yum followed by Red Curry was spot on.

Stopped off for a quick lunch, restaurant was rammed. The lunch menu was good value for London and was very tasty, service was a bit sparse as seemed to be much busier than they expected. Friendly though

A friend took me here for lunch and we turned up without reservation to be greeted and seated promptly. We both chose from the 2 course lunch menu for £9.50 and enjoyed a great meal with attentive service. I’m heading back next week too.

Decided to head here for a Friday night dinner after work. Food was lovely though the menu was a little restrictive. Staff were attentive and prices were reasonable.

I went to Sawadika with a group of friends for dinner after the restaurant we had planned to go to was full. Sawadika was over the road and was pretty quiet so we went there instead. The food was nice and reasonably priced, but we...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
