"Super bustling venue with fabulous people watching opportunities. Tastefully decorated the restaurant delivers a wealth of varied cuisine well executed and attention to detail on both flavour and presentation. Surprisingly, given the location, portions were generous. The garden and conservatory dining was perfectly suited to a summer lunchtime."

"Lovely selection of tapas of all sorts, that arrive in a sensible order at an unhurried pace. What made our visit was the excellent wine suggestions from the waiter, with samples to try before ordering."

"We went for part of my wife's 60th birthday and it was a fabulous experience worth every penny. A completely different approach to 'a curry' but a very special approach the food was fantastic. The service even included a 'signed' menu to take away. One slight problem it was noisy."

"Brilliant and innovative sushi prepared by a master chef. Sashimi, particularly the o toro tuna is excellent. Easily a match for Zuma in respect of the quality its sushi and sashimi and better in terms of creativity. Pleasant comfortable but unspectacular ambience with competent service. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food."

hawksmoor manchesterJay Rayner weighs in on the north/south restaurant divide question

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.
