“So you’re in Paris and the food’s great, the wine yummy and it feels intimate but not too packed. No you’re not: you’re in Brick Lane, and at half the cost!” – that’s the gist of all feedback on this “lovely”, “very friendly”, “very quaint and authentic” East End bistro.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
