Comments - Stand out in our weekly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

This was my 4th RYN dinner and it was another hugely enjoyable experience. I arrived a bit late due to a badly timed meeting in Victoria but the branch was very easy to find; walking distance from Regent's Park station (and Great Portland Street too). First impressions of the branch when I walked in was that it was very spacious and the drinks/cutlery/sauce stations were well placed. The only benefit of being late was that I missed the likely huge queues that our party would have caused and I was served pretty quickly (got a Nando's receipt with my name too!) and the food came sharpish. My main gripe about the restaurant would be the shocking lighting on our table in the back corner of the restaurant; why they ever thought it was a good idea to copy the woeful Hollister-style ambience is beyond me!
