“Simon Shaw of El Gato Negro and Canto has a new Middle Eastern venture and it’s hit the ground running” according to early reports on this subterranean 2021 newcomer, which occupies the Grade II-listed historic cellars (previously occupied by Panama Hatty's, RIP) of the city’s famous Reform Club. “The place looks the real deal” with a “lovely fit-out” – making it a promising addition in a trendy Eastern Mediterranean vein.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
