Harden's says

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.

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

The “unchanging” style of this South Bank stalwart has – for over 30 years – made it a “comforting” refuge near the National Theatre. But now “this longtime favourite has gone down the fusion route” (in partnership with a former chef), with an updated look, and “serving South East Asian cuisine in the place of the traditional Franco/modern British grub”. There’s very little feedback on its latest direction, hence we’ve left it unrated, but Nigel Wilkinson remains a partner in the business, and his “unbeatable” Loire wine list (“the most extensive in the UK”) remains a headline attraction.

"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 restaurant’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."
