Harden's says

Rising star chef Matthew Scott laid down a marker with creative zero-waste cooking for his HOT4U meal delivery service during the pandemic. He is now in a permanent venue in London Fields that Grace Dent of The Guardian assures readers is "genteel".

“Any restaurant with five orange wines gets my vote!” – initial reports give a green light to this early 2023 newcomer in London Fields: the successor to ‘Hot 4 U’, a wacky former meal delivery service for hipsters that was born of the pandemic. “The small menu highlights some imaginative dishes” from chef Matthew Scott and there’s an “extensive wine list” curated by Charlie Carr.

For 33 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).

"I really wish I liked it more. The menu looked exciting and plates were presented beautifully but the flavours did not meld well. A beautiful pile of cucumbers with a szechuan-esque dressing was too sour, tomatoes with whipped Graceburn and fig leaf was missing something. Service was good if a little confused but wine suggestions spot on. Sadly the sheer volume in the dining room also dampened the experience. "
