Tiles sits incongrously on a busy road a stone’s throw from the traffic hullabaloo of Victoria station. Its large glass windows successfully exclude the cacophony and one can dine in quiet amid the attractive tile-work. We would recommend the ‘supper club’, a two-course meal with a glass of wine, for diners striving to save without skimping on quality. A tasty carrot, coriander and ginger soup was hearty, while the saltiness of grilled halloumi combined well with pink grapefruit in a pine-nut sprinkled salad. Chargrilled tuna steak with puy lentils was expertly cooked and generous of portion. The ‘famous fish cakes’ were more fish-flavoured potato than fish, but were almost redeemed by a huge mound of flavoursome, hand-cut chips. A handy spot during train delays.
