RSJ – a Southbank stalwart offering “solid French-bourgeois food at fair prices” – is now "Sticky Mango at RSJ" with a south east Asian menu from former head chef, Peter Lloyd. The Loire wine list remains for the time being as do some of the staff. But the main branding now is "Sticky Mango" not "RSJ", and spiritually this seems more like a new venture than a tweaking of the formula.

Sticky Mango at RSJ Restaurant Diner Reviews
"RSJ has always been 'good but ordinary' as far as its food is concerned and the key attraction has been its list of Loire wines and the restaurantâ€™s proximity to the Festival Hall. Changing the cuisine hasn't affected that. It's still good, this time with south Asian dishes. All very tasty and the presentation of the dishes is outstanding. But whether St Nicolas de Bourgeuil is the perfect match for them is doubtful."
