survey result

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“Buzzy, bordering on frenetic” – these “wonderful replicas of Mumbai’s Parsi cafés” have exceptional energy levels for a fast-expanding chain, and offer “deeply satisfying, colonially-inspired, street-food style dishes” (including “terrifically interesting breakfasts”), plus “excellent cocktails”. The catch? – the limited-bookings policy leads to “massive” queues “out of all proportion to reality”. Top Menu Tip – “the black dhal is a must”.

Summary

A “brilliant vibe” has been captured by this “energetic” and impressively executed concept – a growing chain of Mumbai-inspired Parsi cafés; “vibrant street-food” (including a great “brunch Bombay-style”) is served in its “stunningly designed” outlets; “shame you can’t book”. In Autumn 2015, a new branch is slated to open off Carnaby Street.

Summary

“A real buzz” distinguishes these “cool” and “different” – and very popular – Mumbai-style Parsi cafés, in Covent Garden and Shoreditch; the food is surprisingly “genuine”, and “delicately spiced” too.
