This place is awesome! The staff is extremely professional and eagerly wants to ensure that you are given everything that you need for a satisfactory night. I got the teriyaki salmon and buns which was divine, and my friend got the duck and buns...which I was eyeing all night.

I came here on a Friday night with two friends, as we were looking to grab a bite somewhere central and this is conveniently located off one of the branches of Seven Dials. I hadn't realized that it's run by the same people as Bone Daddies, but once you get there, it is quite evident with their co-branding (everywhere it says Flesh & Buns, it says Bone Daddies as well). There are a number of...more
