Respond to Review of Tibits

Review: London branch of this Swiss restaurant opened quite recently. It is quite a large space with an upstairs and downstairs. Decor is modern and quite slick. I went at Christmas time and there was a Christmas tree decorated with all different ornaments made from/ representing food. It was rather charming as opposed to Mr Twit beard style. It is a buffet restaurant and after you have taken your food from the table on the left as you go in it is weighed at the counter on the right and you are charged accordingly. I piled my plate with a bit of nearly everything. The plates are big so it all fit on. It was largely Western food with a few ethnic items such as a couple of Indian appetizers. It is difficult to recall everything I had, it ranged from starters to salads to pasta and other cooked dishes. I took a bread roll too. It was good food. It tasted good and was mostly organic although they omitted labeling it organic strictly speaking as they have taken in to account ingredient's air miles in reaching organic/ sustainable status. There is an extensive drinks list too including juice, cocktails, wine and coffee and tea. They also have purified tap water. I had a mango lassi which was good. There are deserts, also on the buffet table, however I was definitely full after my effort with the starter/main. There are sandwiches which you can take away on the right were you pay. We were served by a very friendly, attentive person who explained everything to us thoroughly and tirelessly. It is ₤2 for every 100grams from the buffet. They have had an upper limit on the maximum charge which is ₤9.5 I think. A full plate generally weighs more than 500grams, depending on how high you pile it, so it is quite a good deal, although I'm not sure how long it will last. Bread roll is free. Good value for good quality food. Good food, service, space, location and it's gentle on the planet too! Excellent!
