"Welcome to the universal food experience , were the textures , colours and the freshest ingredients are put together in a way that i can only say its magical, well presented and cooked to perfection , the service is one of the best in london so far ."
"Not very atmospheric - service "OK" - in fact it's just "OK" - nothing more."
"Good mix of modern english/amercan orientated dishes. their burgers are particularly good for a lunchtime bite. Wine list is what they are about, but whilst it is a good list its not blowing me away with value or range. Service is attentive but not too fussy. Feels like a good place for business, but not romance."
"Slowly changing its menu's but still generally as good as it always has been. I sense a slight dip in quality over previous visits, but still good value for this hidden delight off Oxford st."
"Food is good but in my view trying too hard to be different without creating anything delicious. Nice place & nice people"
"Twice here in 2016. Absolutely consistent, gosh, its impressive when a restaurant can stay on form in this way. Did not recognise anything on the menu from previous visits but as ever here everything looks tempting and is delicious - had 8 different dishes and all were top. And the sherries are an extra treat. had another great dinner early April - the spicing and tastes are so original and spot on. Its busy and the service can slow up but always charming."
"The food is better prepared than on recent visits, and the staff is most accommodating. The menu is quite extensive."
"The changing menu allow you to go back often, and the ales are so good with a range of guest beers that it is easy to overlook the simple but adequate wine list. the menu is increasingly varied for Brunning and Price pub, with dishes such as Mauritian Goat Curry well worth a punt!"
"Much hyped and it lived up to it - this really is very special interesting delicately cooked Indian food. Definitely to return to. Not cheap but why should it be when the quality is this good."
The Observer's critic-in-chief heads to Manchester to try out the new Hawksmoor and stumbles across a veggie dining room, 1847, serving great food – well, apart from the desserts. Read our roundup of restaurant news in Manchester and enter our Hawksmoor Manchester competition.
Meanwhile the Guardian's Marina O'Laughlin pays a visit to the much gushed about Kitty Fisher's
Everyone else love, love, loves it but Marina can't help but feel she's ended up at a house party she wasn't quite invited to, particularly as the restaurant staff seem allergic to answering the phone. We can attest to that having called them on at least 10 occasions without success.
The award for most ferocious review this week has to go to The Sunday Times's A A Gill
The critic has a thing or two to say about Mayfair's 'ridiculously overpriced' Mexican, Peyote, including: “...fiddly, neurotic preparation with pale, polite taste and silly, parsimonious sharing plates that aren’t bounteous or fun and are more like eating the catering pitch for a drug cartel’s wedding.”
Over at The Times, Giles Coren gives his opinion on Russian-imported pizza chain Bocconcino
“Bocconcino isn’t a bad restaurant. It just isn’t a necessary restaurant.” At £202 for pizza and pasta it's not hard to see why Mr Coren might feel that way – mind you, a £46 bottle of wine probably helped nudge the bill up.
And last but not least, Ms Maschler reviews Brindisa's new Morada Asador
The Standard's long-standing critic heads to the latest outpost of this tapas chain (in Soho) and finds the meats are the reason to flock here – from the 'delectable' milk-fed lamb to the Secreto Iberico.
The terrace is divided into two halves – with an al fresco restaurant with full dining menu to one side and the more casual Lobster Shack to the other side. For late night suppers there will also be cosy blankets and terrace heating.
On the Lobster Shack menu: lobster rolls, ceviche tacos and seasonal oysters as well as Perrier-Jouët Champagne by the glass, takeaway half bottles and picnic packages in their signature coolers.
The terrace restaurant will take bookings for larger groups but also accepts walk-ins. On the menu: Clay Baked Lobster (half or whole); Market Fish of the Day; Poached Shrimp Salad; and Tuna Tartare.
The wine list will feature the entire Perriet-Jouët range of bottles and vintage champagnes - from Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut through to Belle Époque - as well as a select choice of rosé wine by the glass or bottle. There will be magnums of Perrier-Jouët Champagne available along with Perrier-Jouët Champagne flights and food pairings. The selection of rosé wine will include wines from Chateau d’Esclans and Domaines Ott.
