“Mind-blowing food” that’s “hard to classify”“a true pot pourri of tastes from around the world using a cascade of daringly combined ingredients to create a theatrical experience for the eyes, and a surprising explosion for the taste buds” – is carving ever-wider culinary renown for Ramael Scully’s “exceptionally interesting” two-year-old in St James’s Market, whose kitchen is “really pushing the boundaries”. The room is “classy” too, and staff are “so extremely knowledgeable and helpful”. “The only downside is a crowd that’s a bit St James-y”. Top Tip – “sit at the counter, where talking to the chefs is a bonus”.

“A breath of fresh air in the stuffy world of gastronomic London” – this stupendous first solo venture from former Nopi head chef Ramael Scully opened in St James’s Market in early 2018, creating ‘out there’ fusion fare which reflects his heritage… which is Chinese/Indian/Irish/Balinese! He’s assembled “a joyful, creative team of people who care and love food” and results are “exceptional in every sense”: “innovative food that’s a simple and pure joy” and “staff who make a visit a very special occasion”.

"Both is available, tables and counter seats. They are serving the small plates sharing concept, which is quite fashionable nowadays. A big plus is that they are taking reservations. On their website they describe themselves at Asian Fusion Food, not sure if that hits the spot. It is surely fusion, but more than Asian I do reckon. Menu is obviously changing frequently, at the time of our visit our favourites were the Brussel Sprout Slaw with Oyster Mushrooms and Sea Trout with Salted Duck Egg Relish. The dish with beetroot and the one with knotroot was good, but not really a highlight. It felt is if all of the dishes we ordered, did have something with nuts or almonds on it. Check upfront in case you are having a nut allergy."

"Excellent looking after allergies but pushy staff focused on selling tasting menu let’s the restaurant down and whilst the food was good it wasn’t good enough to come back. Disappointed:"

"Exceptional and inventive cooking by Scilly and his team of chefs but utterly let down by the waiting staff who really didn’t get it right in terms of tone and ability to listen."
