About Fika

Situated just off the increasingly trendy Bethnal Green Road, Fika is a bit of an anomaly - well, Britain isn't exactly teeming with Swedish restaurants - but a very welcome one. The wood clad exterior, is a tongue and cheek welcome to a place that combines fun and good design in a typically Scandinavian manner. Despite offering a chiefly unfamiliar cuisine, Fika's menu is confident and confined to a handful of folksy yet sleekly executed dishes, most of the mains cooked and served in Swedish tradition on a smoked oak plank.
