Presented by chef Francesco Mazzei, Fiume (which means ‘river’ in Italian) is a new modern Italian restaurant that sits on the riverbank in Circus West. Presenting classic southern Italian style dishes and apervitivos, Fiume provides an array of fresh pasta and seafood dishes inspired by the traditional food from the Amalfi coast and the Mezzogiorno.
Mazzei is the chef patron, while his friend Lazarin Kroni is the head chef and oversees the day-to-day running of the restaurant. They are both from the same region of Italy. For the food, they use a combination of British and Mediterranean ingredients. For instance, for the pinsa course, you can indulge in a thin Roman-style pizza with wild mushroom and truffle toppings. And for primi, they serve a range of handmade pasta inspired by Southern Italy’s seafood traditions.
NO.29 POWER STATION WEST
No.29 is the only pub in Circus West and does not disappoint in providing an ideal spot to enjoy some excellently crafted cocktails, a refreshing cold pint or some superb locally sourced food.

On Arches Lane lies Tonkotsu, a Japanese restaurant specialising in the traditional ramen dishes from Kyushu, Japan’s southern island (pictured below). The word Tonkotsu literally translates to “pig bone” in Japanese, but of course, you won’t be ordering pig bone for dinner. In most Japanese and Asian restaurants, Tonkotsu is referring to broth made of pork bones. The process of making the broth is a long one, pork bones are cooked at a rolling boil for 12 hours. This ensures all the goodness is extracted from the bones and the broth turns creamy and white in colour. The broth is the staple of the restaurant, but the menu also includes superb crispy fried chicken dishes, lovely fresh gyozas and “Hiyashi” often referred to as summer ramen, which is cold ramen noodles paired with toppings such as cucumber or ham.
Meaning ‘jewel’ in Portuguese, JOIA, a restaurant, bar and rooftop with mesmerising views, is the creation of the two Michelin-starred Portuguese chef, Henrique Se Pessoa. Located on the 14th,15th and 16th floors of art-otel, chef Henrique makes his London debut with a unique and fresh take on traditional dishes using British and Iberian produce. Serving traditional Portuguese recipes such as BACALHAU À BRÁS, a mix of salted cod, potatoes, egg in a creamy dish topped with parsley and black olives, Henrique’s menu also has Spanish influences offering a range of Spanish tortillas. On the 14th floor, the JOIA bar’s extensive drinks menu offers a range of Catalonian and Portuguese flavours with cocktails mixing Iberian spices and a great wine selection.
Opening soon this summer, Bounce ping pong bar is the ultimate place for a fun activity, drinks and a tasty bite. They serve up pizzas and small bites with a classic beer, wine and cocktail list.

Coming soon this summer, is the UK’s first Tashas, a lovely café concept that first started in South Africa in 2005. With a menu consisting of fine ingredients and a philosophy of creating a homely environment with delicious food all prepared fresh and made to order, Tashas is sure to be a hit. Classic comfort food with an inspired twist is the focus of the recipes, while the interior design of the restaurant is to be marvelled at in its modern excellence.
Founder Natasha Sideris (pictured below) said: “I believe that the setting you eat in is every bit as important as what’s on your plate. Today Tashas has become an extended family of 21 restaurants – 15 in South Africa and 6 in the UAE – and all of them are spaces where food and conversation go hand in hand.”
