Astral Cafe, Horseferry Rd, Westminster

Visited 9th January 2009

(the nearby Regency was my original aim but was full.)


Pleasant simple tiled interior with nice black and white wooden tables and comfortable seats. A nice sign outside too. The only problem – and it’s not an insignificant one – is the lack of ventilation meaning that smell of deep fat frying is strong and remained attached to my hair and clothes in a way I had forgotten was possible since the smoking ban. The welcome was pleasant although the service far from smiley and gracious.

Food: I had a jacket with cheese and beans which was great;  even though it had been microwaved, the skin was pleasant to eat. I did notice that some other diners were given ‘caff salad’ with theirs. I didn’t really mind not having it, but I’m not quite sure why I didn’t get it. Tea was in a mug and a bright orange liquid of great substance.
