A London outpost of Australian chef Bill Granger, who - with restaurants in both Sydney and Japan - has spread himself quite thinly - but now has a few branches in London.
Expect a menu that changes only a little throughout the day, and the fact that your food will probably arrive on a metal plate - which may not please all!
Breakfast (served until midday) offers everything from Freshly-Squeezed Juices, Muesli and Porridge through Pastry items to Scrambled Eggs with Sourdough Toast and a Full Aussie Breakfast (offered all day).
At lunchtime, a few mains are added - perhaps 'Fragrant Fish Curry with Jasmine Rice & Cucumber Relish'; 'Lamb Meatballs with Tomato & Tamarind' and 'Parmesan-Crumbed Chicken Schnitzel with Fennel Slaw'.
The evening seeing further expansion with the likes of items from the BBQ, such as 'Burgers, Spatchcocked Fish, Steak & Ribs. - plus a dish of the day rotated on a regular basis (see their website for current offerings).
Those with a sweet tooth might be tempted by the likes of 'Banana Fritters'; 'Molten Chocolate Pudding' and various Ice Cream-based dishes.
Service is friendly and tries hard, but can be over-stretched.
Avoid busy periods, as they operate a no-booking policy, so you will almost certainly have to wait unless you plan around this.
