Review:

this is the one gilbert and george are always in. they were there. it is somewhat more expensive than 
the others perhaps they have driven up prices. it was full and jolly on a monday night. the differences 
between it and others are small (like chinatown chineses) but significant, and mangal arcola street is 
a lot better, as is the one  a few doors away from mangal 2. things like salad, the way it is seasoned 
or dressed, the variety (rocket good), the bread, the roasted onion salad you do or dont get, the 
mousakka which either tastes old and abandoned or unctuous and fresher, the price here are over 
10 a main, at others closer to 7. I cant see why mangal 2 is so popular, perhaps it is popular 
because it is popular and therefore more expensive, which doesnt seem right.
