"it's worth a visit, to be wowed by Hadid's vision and looked after by charming Juan Calatayud and his sharply dressed team. The food sure made us react, and I've thought about it a lot since." READ REVIEW

"The space deserves far, far better and so do the very comely serving staff. While you’re there, though, go and have a look at one of the least known treasures of London." READ REVIEW

"The Serpentine's tireless directors are right to try and fill Zaha Hadid's dream-like space with a food offer that's equally ambitious, and clearly there is something clever and interesting going on in the kitchen. But maybe the huge proportions of that glacial exoskeleton of a room were always going to be difficult to animate with heart and soul." READ REVIEW

"I’m guessing that given his own way, Lange would lean more towards Japan and Asia, which is where his talents seem to lie. That he’s being stifled by the Serpentine’s arty souls, in a building this self-consciously wacky, is an irony that I’m guessing is lost on them." READ REVIEW
