Latest review:

The food is very good here and you will certainly be taken care of. Michelin stars are about the experience and here you'll have it. For me however the review is a middle of the road as the experience isn't what I expect from Michelin Star restaurant. The environment here is what it's all about. The art, cutlery, service, music, layout and decor. Food wise, the tastes are very good but just missing much that's special or unique. Flavours start strong and lose their way. The wine pairing is hard to understand with the food it comes with (and relies too much on novelty). This place gets a coveted star for the experience and whilst the food is technically excellent I wouldn't go for the food alone.

Our Review of The Man Behind The Curtain (May 2016)

It's safe to say The Man Behind The Curtain is one of the hottest restaurant tickets in the UK right now and it's not difficult to see why. With multiple TV appearances to showcase the ultra modern and spectacular looking food, not to mention a precious star from our favourite tyre munching inspectors, it's really no great surprise that the place is booked up for the entirety of 2016. It wouldn't surprise me if by the time I finish writing the review it's booked up for the entirety of 2017 also. But is the hype really justified? I was looking forward to finding out as I visited with my wife for dinner on a May Tuesday evening....
