Enjoying good food is one of the pleasures of life. Enjoying good food with good company even more so. Now, if that good food also happens to be reasonably priced too, you're on to a winner...
Go to eat at Mushu and you will discover food done well, and fast if you go at lunchtime, and slow if you go in the evening
The focus of the food is on oriental flavours, so you can have elements of Chinese cooking combined with the typical tastes of Japan, such as sushi and sake. In the evening, the food is served tapas-like, which makes it perfect for ordering and combining - and even better for sharing with whoever you choose to take with you.
The decor is bright, and ever-so spacious - with lovely wooden tables and white decor pretty much everywhere - it is the type of place you instantly feel comfortable in, and it genuinely means you stay longer than you were expecting to.
Recommendations? Well, why not try the potsticker dumplings - they are simply delicious, and the bento boxes make a good meal on their own - but if you would like something really special - save some room for the Lions Head meatballs - a real taste of Shanghai in every bite.
So, should you be leaving the galleries in the area, or trying to avoid the in-station food stalls of Kings Cross or Euston, or even just looking for a new place to try out on your weekday lunch break - hopefully I've just made it a little easier for you.
