Please can you do "best places to go with a group". I am always looking for places to go for birthdays, big dinners with friends, or with work colleagues and its alway a real struggle to find places that will take 10 or more people without you having to hire a private room. Thanks!


We tried to dine at Bincho in Soho. No wonder the place was nearly empty. The service was shoddy. We were left to wait and when a waitress eventually appeared to take a drinks order, we were told that we could not have a soft dring served in a can, for Health & Safety reasons. The manager appeared and continued to defend this rediculous position. We will NEVER go there again!
