Fun atmosphere, unique food, great date night. Don't bring the kids. Order the duck! Be sure to use the toilet. Four of us shared: Grilled broccoli, fried squid, rice, Korean fried wings (messy!), Crispy duck leg (fantastic), Fried mackerel, six buns, Tuna sashimi and salmon sashimi, Donut holes,

Passionfruit Smores, Punch and a Jasmine old fashioned. We could have done without the mackerel,...more

The Smores to end with were great...more

Flesh and Buns has to be one of the only places I have returned to more than once. New to London can make you hesitant about whats going to impress you, with so many options to try and opinions differ quite a bit compared to NZ.
