nicolearios wrote on 13 March 2013We had a large group come here last night and it was a really nice little surprise. The service was good and attentive and although there were only three or four wines that were sold by the glass (many others by the bottle/half bottle), the red was really lovely and they're generous enough to fill it all the way to the top :)
Everyone I was with said they really enjoyed their meals and the portions were very generous, especially for the price. They have really great 3 course set menus also that are around £12 for one set of options ant £14 for the second set. Strada is in the area too but this is cheaper and just as good!

The prices are reasonable and my aubergine parmigiana was nice. I think it was a bit of a strange menu: mainly Italian dishes with a few French and even a few Asian fusion dishes in the mix! The decor is very nice, definitely feels a bit more expensive than it actually is, and the service was fine. I would go here again if I'm ever in the area!

Starbucks has always been, for me, a place to have a nice chat with friends after a long day. I don't care too much for most of the drinks, but I do love the frappucinos, and even more, the White Caffe Mocha. The sandwiches are passable, but a bit overpriced. My boyfriend though says they have the best BLT he's found at a sandwich shop. Most of the baked goods are quite nice, the muffins always being really good.

I'm a kid at heart. So when I realised there was a Disney Store on Oxford Street, I ran (not walked) inside and was dazzled. There's two floors, and it seems that the ground floor is geared toward the newer Disney shows and movies (there's a huge Princess and the Frog display at the moment, and a Hannah Montana display in the back), while the upper floor seems more geared toward the classics.
I'm a sucker for plushes, and there's tons of them from so many different movies. The only downside is that they can be a bit expensive. I don't really want to pay £14 for a small Winnie the Pooh. But there's some great sales too. I got a marionette puppet of Kevin from Up for £2, as opposed to at least £15.
If you have kids, or if you're a kid at heart, this place is a must-see.
