Five girlfriends on a shoppingtrip to London. We sure enjoyed every minute of this evening. Food was excellent and the singing fantastic. We loved the interaction with the audience ! Only thing I would comment is that the basement seemed a bit "muggy".

Not French, in a basement, slow service, waitors/weitress sing kind of OPERA. Value not good at all. Not what I expected. Please check other options before booking to this restaurant
