"The menu and its production are also Nordic in their sensibility of clear ideas and unfussy preparation. There is a distinctly oriental accent and as much umami as you could hope for. And it’s all socially priced. This is all of the best of modern eating, with the nonsense, pretension and snobbery left out." READ REVIEW

"The pithivier might be the show-stopper but almost everything, from mouth-puckering snacks of pickled shiitake mushrooms to thick-sliced scallops in an earthy Jerusalem artichoke velouté, should make you smile." READ REVIEW

"We shared a duck for two (£19 per person). The meat had been cooked in the French style – pink but wonderfully tender, so light but so deep at the same time. I don’t know how they manage it. I believe you have to be French before you can ask." READ REVIEW

"Portland is so much my kind of place: an independent serving great food, with smart, savvy service (both owners are working the floor on our visit); it takes reservations and doesn't charge like a rhino." READ REVIEW

" Then, contrary to all that has gone before, we share a game pithivier that is a classic dish impeccably prepared from its shining striated dome and scalloped edge to a wild duck filling that is pink at heart and snug within luscious mushroom duxelles surrounded by potent game and black truffle juices. The noise does not abate as it should do at the serving of this masterpiece, but almost seems as if it does. Already in mid-January this is one of my best dishes of the year." READ REVIEW
