The food itself is OK – high quality ingredients, and tasty. Good menu selection as well, probably the only takeaway delivery that can do Chinese, Japanese, Italian, and American all in one box.
However, Deliverance is expensive – and unless you really want to have a selection of cuisines, then you’re probably better off getting takeaway from single-cuisine places where its more authentic.
The food itself gets 4 out of 5 stars from me, but combined with the pricing, I give it an overall 3 out of 5 stars.

We went here for one of their special Swiss Cheese Fondue Nights, and were impressed with the authentic Swiss chalet that they have built in the garden.
The fondue menu, at £23 per person, represented fair value, as it came with some of the best mixed leaf salad I have had in London, platters of cold cut meats, and some very tasty three cheese swiss fondue with bread. To top it all off, there was dessert, but do go for the cherry cake as it is tastier than the apple strudel, which was quite lacklustre.
All in all, a very filling evening, and good service too. The only gripe is that the restaurant, like most hotel ones, lacked atmosphere.
The Cheese Fondue nights are on Tuesdays and Friday evenings until the end of April, and I've heard resumes again in September/October later this year.

I am a regular customer to the Moshi Moshi in Liverpool Street, and I can say that this place does not disappoint! The sushi is made to the same high standard of quality, and the service is quick and prompt.
The only downside is that it is not a proper restaurant, but tucked inside Waitrose. There are no tables, just a bar-like revolving sushi counter. They do not serve any of the hot bentos or noodles, so it is strictly sushi only.
The sushi here is great, and about the same price or even cheaper than Yo Sushi, and in my opinion the quality here is ten times better than what you get in Yo Sushi.

Not really a review, but perhaps a few pointers for those going for a visa appointment.
1) Make sure to arrive early, as there’s always a long line outside. Be sure you have all your documents. Don’t worry if the photo is the UK passport size instead of the US; in any case, there is a photo booth inside the embassy.
2) Although they say not to bring electronic devices, there is a “cloakroom” when you go through security and they will hold on to any devices they find while you’re there. However, they don’t guarantee that it might not be lost or stolen, so the best policy is still to leave your mobile phone and other things at home.
3) Try to get your documents in presentable order and clearly explained in writing. There are two rounds. The first round is merely to confirm you are the right person and to take your documents. Then there is a wait (usually 1-2 hours, may be much longer) where someone inside will review your file and documents. You will then be called to the interview windows, where they will ask you questions regarding your application.
4) Because of the long waiting time inside, I strongly suggest that you bring lots of reading material with you. There is a cafe that sells food and drinks, but surprisingly no reading material.
5) Upon completion of your interview, you will be told right then and there if you get the visa or not (it was in my case), and you will then have to approach to courier desk to pay for your passport and documents to be sent back to you by post.
6) At this point, you’re done! And congratulations on getting one of the hardest visas ever. And to reward your patience, tourists will usually be granted a 10-year, multiple entry visa. So start planning your next-next trip, and your next-next-next trip to America!
