"It has been the most harmonious of evenings: nothing extraneous, nothing missing. In fact, damned near perfect." READ REVIEW

"The Ledbury is far better than I remember it. The cooking is refined and calm. It resists unnecessary exclamations or startling contradictions. It doesn’t test your palate or demand attention. It just is a very good lunch, at a hefty price." READ REVIEW

"Graham’s food is both bold and complex. It’s hard to imagine many of these dishes as a conventional main course: the seven-course tasting menu seemed to me more a logical choice for these plates composed of small parcels and contrasting components." READ REVIEW

"Far from setting up a Square Mark II and gunning for Michelin stars using the tried and tested recipes of his old boss, Brett Graham's food at the Ledbury is unique - as characterful and intelligently experimental, and most importantly delicious, as any other restaurant in London, even the Square which (whisper it) almost seems slightly po-faced and dated in comparison."

"What sets Platts-Martin apart from the Michelin pack is that his restaurants replicate the intricacy and lavishness of the à la carte stuff in set menus at a fraction of the cost." READ REVIEW

"...quibbles apart, this was serious, grown-up food, from a kitchen that seemed to be running like a Rolls-Royce, and only a couple of weeks after opening." READ REVIEW

Arguably the best restaurant (food-wise) in London. The food is not only tasty but also inspirational and million miles away from being dull or play it too safe kind of fine dining. Everything that comes out of the kitchen is absolutely wonderful and complemented really well with the matching wines. The front of house is very professional and friendly but not yet the best in town. Anyway, they are remarkably flexible to any requests and very generous!

Brett Graham is an inspirational young chef with loads of talent. The most admiring thing is he always have time for customers and anyone who is passionate about food to share opinions and conversations.

The Aussies rule! Personally, I can't wait to see them getting the third star they truly deserve!!!
