This was a very random stop, and normally not a place I would visit as they mostly did Ramin….which is something I never take as I don’t know how to use chopsticks…but I saw they did other dishes so I decided to pop in and try.

Looking Around

Tonight was very busy but I opted to sit at the window so I could do some people watching and try the food.

Due to it being so busy I didn’t take any photos, due to privacy and letting people eat their food.

It is very nice inside, very bright and very modern and had a really nice relaxing atmosphere.

The Food…

Since am not good with chopsticks, and they had knives and forks…I opted for something that I have not had in ages…

Starter

Chicken Katsu Curry £11.50

breaded chicken breast, katsu curry sauce, pickles and steamed white rice

On arrival, this looked good, and I was really in the mood for something with curry.

The chicken pieces were very tender, which a really good crispy batter and had the perfect little crunch and flavour.

The portion size was really good, and I enjoyed this dish very much so I could have easily gone for seconds.

This was a random pick, and I am so glad I got this.

It was a very nice and smooth drink, that had a really nice and soft plum flavour.

The waiter asked if we wanted it with ice or no ice, his recommendation was with ice…to be honest, I think either would have been good.

Overall

Overall my experience was very good, the food was very nice and the atmosphere was good.

The one area tonight was lacking was the service, we had to attract the attention of the waitresses to order, again twice for the bill…..and twice again to get the card machine. Yes, it was busy, but most of the staff were standing talking so I can’t say they were busy with customers.

On my walkabout London I came across this little place, and it looked nice inside plus I felt like having an English Breakfast.

Inside was very modern looking, and not too busy which was good as I got a good chance to see how the place looked.

The Food…

Brunch

Flock’s English Breakfast £11.50

What a presentation, very Instagram worthy!

This looked and smelled so good, so it was time to dig in and see how it was.

This was very nice and very filling which is just what I needed.

Overall

I asked for water two times to come to the table, but it took a third time to get it which was disappointing as it wasn’t that busy that I could understand why maybe they forgot.

Overall it was a good visit, apart from the water situation.
