Harden's says

Not content with opening St Leonards this year, Jackson Boxer and Andrew Clarke have already opened a new venture, Orasay, which focuses on the cuisine of the Hebridean islands where Boxer spent childhood summers.

“Outstanding fish and seafood” form the backbone of the menu at this Notting Hill two-year-old that celebrates the Hebridean island that supplies the name – where chef Jackson Boxer (of Brunswick House in Vauxhall) spent his childhood summers. The food is “delivered with great consistency” and there’s a “short but interesting wine list, too”. There’s a danger of the place being “over-hyped” – but Boxer brings it off and provides “a nice change from the surrounding Italianesque and fusion hangouts”. Top Tip: “Béarnaise sauce worth eating on its own” (but you may have to order one of the “fab steaks” to get a taste).

As “a welcome arrival in the area”, Jackson Boxer’s “friendly and unpretentious” new venture (which oldies will think of as opposite the long-RIP 192) commands a lot of support from Notting Hill locals, and it’s drawing a “fun crowd”, including a few famous faces. The cuisine focuses on the Hebridean islands where Boxer spent childhood summers: to fans, results are “superb”, but one or two reporters feel “good ingredients are fussily assembled” to create dishes that are merely “good but not amazing”.
