Harden's survey result
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.
Too often branded “a disappointment… and an expensive disappointment at that” – this incredible, gilded neo-Byzantine chamber on Piccadilly Circus has been through a succession of owners, of which this year-old Milanese régime is the latest. By-and-large ignored by Londoners nowadays, such feedback as there is talks of “bland food, poorly presented”.
“Another dud” – this “extraordinary neo-Byzantine dining room” (“possibly the most jaw-dropping space in the West End”) – is so “disappointing when one considers just how great it could be.” With the previous incumbent going into administration, this new Milanese régime is not only “eyewateringly expensive” but too often provides “shocking food and inattentive service”.

"The food is an improvement over the other restaurants that have been in this elegant place. Unfortunately, the price is too high for the good but not outstanding food. A pleasant place but not necessarily one to which we might return."
