Wonderful food, super nice staff. And it's not pricey either. A little gastronomic paradise in busy noisy Camden, tucked away in a Camden backstreet. a fine atmosphere and not trendy (in a good way) - it's just hearty well cooked Greek food that tastes lovely. street, its food for the soul
One of my favourite restaurants in London! Amazing food and very lovely staff. Next time I'm in London, my first visit will be to Daphne to eat their amazing Kleftiko again.

I have to admit I'm a bit of a fan of this place. I think it's because of its rather wonderful old fashioned values and service, where waiters were proud of their profession and not students just covering the summer till they started their "real" jobs. Of table cloths and folded napkins, and generous portions of good honest food. You're probably not going to see the latest starlet or social media star here, more regular patrons who like me return to enjoy an old fashioned, good night out.
Today we ate at the Oslo Court restaurant for the first time, and I was strangely disappointed. It's not that the food isn't good - it is. It's fine dining, but (apart from dessert) certainly excellent quality, tasty and well-presented, with an extensive menu of traditional British + continental dishes. It's a really strange experience eating in the Oslo Court - very old-fashioned, with lots of pink tablecloths and napkins, and the waiters all dressed up in tuxedos! The problem for me is mainly that it's really very expensive for what it is... £38 per person for 3 courses for lunch (around £50 for dinner), with supplements of £2 or £3 for some of the dishes, which once you've included drinks plus the 10% service charge, adds up to quite a lot. The actual restaurant is in the ground floor of a block of flats in St John's Wood in London, so the ceiling is quite low, and what with the tables being quite close together that made it quite noisy. Service was good, but they did this strange thing of reeling off a very long list of specials (perhaps 5 starters and 10 main courses) which was impossible to remember - why the restaurant can't print them out I don't know. For dessert I was expecting an old-fashioned dessert trolley (I'm sure someone said that's what they do there) but again the waitress verbally reeled off the 5 or 6 desserts. I had sherry trifle, which to be honest wasn't actually very nice. So as a one-off, yes it's good to experience the Oslo Court. Lots of friends have raved about it, but personally I wouldn't go back.

Very hospitable restaurant, great for eating in, portions are huge and the food is very good. I promise you will not be disappointed!
A ONE HAND WONDER Lahmacun (lamb-a-june) wrap so much nicer than pizza or donner. The "Turkish pizza" (lahmacun) is soft, but with crunchy flakes on the outside and with a simple meaty, tomatoey base inside..... Covered in all the bits n bobs you can get for a typical donner kebab wrap..... Red cabbage, tomato, shredded lettuce, pickled chilli, onion and sauces like garlic mayo and chili. Wrapped up with a tiny bit protruding from the opening - I wander homewards munching contentedly. Still got free hand for shopping - an important consideration for a walk-n-munch-lunch. £2. Yep - just two quid for this really yummy street snack. Don't know about any of the other dishes. Place looks cool (temperature) and relaxing. Lots of interesting Turkish names on the menu. I have a Turkish friend who suggested I try lamb-a-june and I have it now at least once a week. Will collect more suggestions and return.
