Nadra's original Chiswick restaurant is a hit with the locals and this sees him moving north to Primrose Hill. Expect a menu with British, European and Asian ingredients as well as a martini bar.

"...a fine treacle tart, served with clotted cream and an unnecessary gooseberry sorbet, would have benefited from being heated before being served. Like much else here – service, interior, ho-hum wine list – it’s perfectly pleasant but lacks necessary warmth." READ REVIEW

"There's no doubt that Michael Nadra is a talented chef. But something about his new restaurant doesn't hang together. The space is difficult, with its awkward division into three disconnected areas." READ REVIEW

"I'd go back for that (martini) bar and an enticing brunch, all Manx kippers and treacle bacon and French toast, which would make real sense of their canal-side terrace on a sunny day. But until it unclenches, I'll leave the restaurant to the grown-ups." READ REVIEW

" Given the quality of his first solo venture it’s surprising that Nadra’s talent remains a little under the radar for most people outside of Chiswick. This excellent addition to Primrose Hill should change all that, given that it’s even better." READ REVIEW

The food was exceptional, as good as any Michelin star and better than some Michelin's.

However the service was not good. We had the 6 course raster and were made to wait 50 minutes between our 3rd and 4th courses. No one gave us an explanation as to what was going on during this time. Only once I complained did the manager give an explanation. They did redeem themselves by the end of the evening having given us a the wine tasting on the house and not including the 12.5% service.

I would give them a second chance as I think once they iron out whatever issues they had getting the 4th course out this restaurant will be excellent. Amazing food!!!
