"Excellent coffee, wine & ales pre cinema, or with the view over the Ouse any time. Such a eclectic mix of clientele."

"Rather costly high street tandoori staple dishes in a the ambience of a rather beautiful eastern hotel or cocktail bar.. The food is frsh, and I think, not just from three tubs of sauces like in a lot of Indian restaurants. But the place, as you go further back from the stylish front parts, is like a cavern and never full. I would say that the food is good and the service is attentive but it is an expensive place for a basically standard-type of Indian fayre. Then again, given postcode and location it could not be cheap."

"I think this is probably a happy place for stufents and for Mums with kids from the nearby schools and olayground in the woods. It has a canteen feel, with long tables and benches, like at at school. Like at a school, the food is not very good and you are served by stern women who ate not so friendly. There are weird stuffed mice dolls all around the place. We were mot made to feel welcome and the pizzas were too thick and lacked flavour. I am tild by friends in the area that this olace has been here for a long time and it is an 'institution'. Well, so is H.m.p. holloway."

"Reasonably priced, very decent Japanese (and Korean) grub served with a smile. Not sure you'd travel across London for the food, but I am delighted it's just around the corner. We'll be back."

The Editors Review
RG5357-chilternfirehouse

Celeb chef du jour, Nuno Mendes, who closed Viajante last year and headed for Marylebone's über hot Chiltern Firehouse (pictured), has announced plans for a casual, new tavern in east London. Mendes, perhaps the first chef to put Bethnal Green on the culinary map with his tour-de-force restaurant at the Town Hall Hotel, will open Taberna do Mercado in Spitalfields Market later this year.

The 40-cover all-day venue will serve food and wine from Mendes’s native Portugal. A soft opening will take place 4-10 May with booking available from 29 April via http://www.tabernamercado.co.uk/.

Mendes himself will stay on as executive chef at American hotelier Andre Balazs's Chiltern Firehouse – which despite being a like a flame for celebrity moths was decidedly put in its place by our survey reporters who found the food a bit “meh” and the place itself full of “paparazzi and poseurs”.
