The food here is almost as grand as the building itself, the interior resembles something out of a James Bond film and the food will leave you positively shaken (with joy) not stirred. The large round tables are great for big celebrations, but they also have those dark corners for a more intimate experience. There is such an extensive menu here with something for everyone so the only thing to put you off this place is the dilemma of deciding what to order. We recommend ordering multiple dishes between you and trying a bit of everything; after all sharing is caring.
