Quality is the name of the game here, and great effort goes into producing consistent products. Good salad leaves, pre-packed vegetables and trimmed meat.
Their excellent selection of traiteur dishes include those from the Italy, the Far-East and India; unfortunately they are designed to be inoffensive so tend to hold the middle-ground in the flavour stakes. The basic range has recently been joined by one called Connoisseur, developed in conjunction with Albert Roux; this includes the likes of crab cakes with chili sauce and monkfish with sweet pepper - tasty, good value and convenient.
They still produce the best chicken Kievs available; but, be careful not to buy the cheaper reformed meat version. Excellent party nibbles.
