"An interesting and well thought-out addition to the trendy eateries in the area, Chifafa offers speedily made, high end kebabs and salads. My partner, who opted for a "box" with rice and salad was very impressed with her lamb. Choosing to avoid meat on this occasion, I went for the halloumi, which was flavoursome and grilled to just the right point. Beer choices were limited to Efes, an oddly authentic touch in a place trying to take the kebab away from its Turkish roots; I would say go the whole hog, then, and serve Rocket Dog, or any one of a number of small batch, local brew beers instead! That point apart, the food was excellent, the premises clean and bright and comfortable and the personnel very helpful, friendly and keen to do their jobs. I gather this place has not been operating long, I wish it well!"
"I am easily taken in by some rustic or even fake rustic charm, so I will admit that I was disappointed to find my Spanish dining experience taking place in a bright basement full of smartly dressed people. I was more than compensated by the selection of excellent sherries and fine dishes. The service was efficient but not intrusive and the price, for what felt to me like a very 'posh nosh' agreeable. I would recommend Fino for a special occasion."
"Knowledgeable staff came up with gluten free options."
"What's not to like? Apart from a hair in the bread...excellent experience!"
"We visited for a second time before a show. We were not disappointed. The food is typically French and outstanding. The staff are very friendly and charming. We will go again and again. A wonderful, quirky and deliciious experience. Thank you, we will always recommend you."
The City's latest development behemoth, Broadgate Circle, has opened behind Liverpool Street station, bringing with it 11 new dining destinations. And the line-up is better than one might expect – none of the usual, ubiquitous chains that often take up residency in these restaurant arcades.
Hakkasan Group has chosen Broadgate Circle for the second site of dim sum teahouse Yauatcha, as well as its first standalone patisserie – the imaginatively named Yauatcha Patisserie.
Stepping outside of his trendy Bermondsey comfort zone is Spanish chef José Pizarro, who will open an outpost of his much-loved tapas restaurants in the new development in May.
Also coming soon ETM Group's The Botanist, Crab Tavern, alongside Comptoir Libanais, Sandwich and Street Dots’ ever-changing line-up of street food trucks. Since its launch, Aubaine, Franco Manca, Shoryu Ramen and Beany Green have all opened at Broadgate Circle.
As part of an extensive redevelopment of the area, the new restaurants will participate in a programme of food, drink and cultural events open to the public throughout the summer months. Events include: cocktail master classes, wine tastings, the Broadgate bake-off, a London Farmer’s Market (all produce sourced within the M25), live sport screenings, theatrical performances, foodie film screenings, contemporary productions and children’s activities.
