We went here before catching a show at the Adelphi theater. It is a great little place tucked up on the 2nd floor of an old hotel. Apparently it has been there since 1946.

Instead, I left disappointed. Why?
Prices are reasonable, but there are better values in Central London (i.e. set-price menu) for lunch. My chicken curry was a small portion and, surprisingly, had more than a few pieces of bone. Plain...more
