Part of the Old Bengal Warehouse complex converted by D&D Restaurants into a mega-complex of dining, drinking and retail, this one of two restaurants on the site, the other being New Street Grill. If you opt for the shellfish platter – possibly the best choice here – it will set you back £25 per head. Some of our dishes were on the salty side, but it’s a seafood restaurant, after all. The service was a little unsteady on our visit, particuarly in contrast to the New Street Grill next door.

Anyone conscious about class and structural discrimination should avoid this place. I cannot say anything about the food because we left five minutes after arriving. I made a reservation for two with the Evening Standard deal for 6 PM. When we arrived we were directed to a table right by the door. When I requested to change the table (and the restaurant was empty with only two or three people dining), the waitress politely refused, claiming that there were no other available tables. Clearly this was not the case - she had previously said that for 6 there was only one other reservation. It seemed clear that having reserved a table via an Evening Standard 'deal,' this was the only table they were willing to provide.
What made me angry is the hypocrisy with which such restaurants try to capitalize in a low season on 'lower' class people by opening their doors with 'deals', but then show resistance to this treating this very set of customers with dignity and respect. I will never go to this restaurant or any other owned by D&D.
I really enjoyed this place. The fish was perfect, fresh and delicious. Staff, very nice. They should be quicker in bring you the menu when you sit down, although I understood because it was pretty busy. We literally closed the place, but the staff put no pressure on us at all. Nice. Price: not too cheap but, hey! you are eating fresh fish!!!
