Hing Lee- I like it, disappointed that they are closing.
- loved the products that they sold. Valentina now carries a similar range.
La Lanterna- never visited it.
Salernos- Pony. There was previously a Thai restaurant on the same location that didn't survive either. The landlord is turning the site into office space.
- did a decent crab bhuna but was expensive and always empty.
Long and the short of it is that only chains can afford to be on Shad Thames
itself, and even elsewhere in the area the rents are still unaffordable for independents.
