Even critics of this big and ambitious yearling off Trafalgar Square confess it looks “amazing” (“an Aladdin’s cave of to-die-for Tom Dixon design-treasures”). “When fusion food goes wrong, it goes really wrong” however, and even though the “Asian-ish fare” can impress, it can also be “atrocious”. Perhaps try it out first for a “lovely cocktail” (“it’s a stunning place for a drink, particularly if you grab the outdoor table with a through-the-arch view of Nelson’s Column”), or try the “top notch brunch”.

Summary

On the site of the Strand Dining Rooms (RIP), this large newcomer has recently debuted off Trafalgar Square. It opened too late for survey feedback: early reviews suggest that despite a fairly wacky-sounding Pacific-fusion menu, the food is eclipsed by the dazzling Tom Dixon interior design.
