The Drunken Butler


The first restaurant from chef/patron Yuma Hashemi, The Drunken Butler serves French cuisine with an overtly Persian influence. Menu items range from pita bread with sabzi khordan - a platter of fresh herbs - feta and walnuts, to foie gras with brioche and pear, and traditional Japanese soft cooked eggs. It's an ambitious and eclectic mix, but one served in a relaxed environment. The restaurant is also open for breakfast with the kitchen offering up coffee and freshly made Sicilian pastries.

The Drunken Butler aims to provide a comfortable and communal eating experience, with dishes being served as sharing plates or as a meal you have all to yourself. The centrepiece to the dining area is a large communal table perfect for large parties, surrounded by smaller tables facing onto the open kitchen.

You have the option of ordering from both an a la carte menu, or opting for the five-course tasting menu which features oysters, foie gras, Onsen Tamago, sea bass and Valrhona chocolates. Alternatively, diners can put their trust in the chef to serve up something entirely different and incredibly special.
