EV has now opened and having eaten there I'm happy to report that it has all the qualities of the Tas chain - good quality food in copious quantities, great service and atmosphere, and fantastic live music. Four of us went last week and were offered free drinks in the bar (not sure if this is was because our table wasn't ready or because it was the first week of opening but we weren't complaining!) as well as numerous complimentary bowls of bread along with dips and olives on top of some great grub. The guitar player was fantastic -helped by the accoustics of the restaurant which is under a railway arch - this meant that rather than just blending in the background like at other Tas restaurants he earned several enthusiastic applauses.
We only knew EV had opened because we couldn't get a table at all the other three Tas restaurants in the area - the receptionist at Tas Pide
kindly rang them for us. They're also a bit off the beaten path on Isabella Street
so it probably doesn't get much pasing trade. So if you're looking for a Xmas meal venue and you've left it a bit late, I'd recommend giving them a call - 020 7620 6191.
