Afternoon fellow Londoners.

Anyone know a good Indian restaurant near Shaftesbury Avenue? The reason I ask is it looks like I'm going to the Thriller musical later this month as a replacement for the Michael Jackson concert and myself and the mother have decided a good curry is in order.

If you can't think of any Indian restaurants, any other good eateries that spring to mind are more than welcome?

Thanks.

This place is unbelievable -

One of the best meals I have ever had. Michael Gambon was sat on the table next to us too. You may have to book, as its very small, but its not expensive and is a place you will probably revisit many times.

Appreciated Sinatra.

Square reviewed us the other night so it'll be interesting to see what they say as well.

There's a branch of Rasa at Charlotte Street. It's not far from Shaftesbury Ave. I've not been to that one but the chain is exemplary.

That looks very good quality and reasonble to boot as well.

Cheers mate, that's topping the list at the moment.

Union Square Bar and Restaurant at the o2, where I work. It replaced Raan which used to be down there, right next to the main entrance to the o2 arena.

Our first "reviews" night was an absolute shocker, we got creamed because the kitchen totally fucked up, that badly that the head chef was promptly fired. The other night we had Square, Metro, Telegraphy Guide, Guardian, Venue Magazine amongst others in, all in one go. It was fun.

It's too expensive to eat and drink there unless you're using the arenas or the cinema. In our place a pint is £4.20, mixers are anywhere between £6 and £12 and the wine and champagne list is extensive and extremely expensive with some topping £1600. The food isn't too bad as long as you're not a rib eye steak kind of guy otherwise you're looking at the best part of £40 for the main alone!

I kid you not, that is my favourite main course... I nearly always order a decent steak if it's on the menu.
Thanks for the tip though.

Well rib eye steak is £38!

Restaurants and bars in the o2, anything from Nandos and Pizza Express, to the two fine dining restaurants, us and Gaucho, can essentially charge what they like. If you're coming to an event night you're isolated down there, you can't just walk down the road and pop to McDonalds or a cafe, there's a Fuellers pub nearby but that's a good twenty minute walk.

Any info on the fire in Dean Street? We can smell it a kilometre away on the Strand.

Went to The Narrow pub in Limehouse this afternoon, Gordon Ramsay's place, and it's very good. I'm a big GR fan so I'm likely to say that but it's a lovely atmosphere, great riverside view, extensive wine and beer list and the food is quite impressive for fairly simple, British traditional food. They do an impressive selection of tap ales and lagers including Leffe and Peroni. Prices aren't too bad either for London and GR, food is anywhere between £6 and £25, wine per glass is around £5 and beer/lager is around £4. I reccomend it to anyone who's interested.

Whoa, there's a London thread?

That's all really. Debating whether to get a Cineworld card or not, as it'll mean travelling into London to use it. Hmm...

I must have been in the O'Neils on Great Queen Street having a few Orange Sherbets as I kind of missed this. That or it was a really insignificant fire...

I have a Cineworld card and they are very much worth it, I go to the cineworld in West India Quay.

WIQ is alright then? I thought about getting one when I lived in Leeds, but the nearest was Bradford and one visit was enough.

It's been a while since I went drinking in the city - are there ANY good pubs left?

By good I mean - quiz machine, no city-suit jobs, cider that won't mean promising one of my limbs to the barkeep.

Did anybody know there was another postal strike in London yesterday, I only just found out?

I know this because my tickets for the Hartlepool and Orient matches have yet to arrive despite being sent first class from the club at the beginning of the week, I rang Charlton and they told me about it.

Frustrating, but I support the postal workers and their actions.

I found out last night when watching the news, didn't really affect me as i'm not waiting for anything in the post but was surprised it had happened and i hadn't heard. Maybe i just haven't read The Metro enough lately!

I think it was just for the day on Wednesday and it must have been unplanned, I know there were planned ones that took place last Thursday and Friday because they put up notices about it in New Cross PO.

I prefer the Evening Standard, I know it costs but it's just so much better...

I'm coming down for a bit of a touristy holiday with my sis and bro-in-law.
Been looking forward to Avenue Q for ages.

If I'm free at any point we should pick a pub and have a couple of "jars" or whatever it is you strange people call pints!
