About Crescent Restaurant

Offering serene sanctuary from the chaos of Oxford Street, Crescent Restaurant is welcoming, elegant and relaxing. You can enjoy a warming tea or a reviving cocktail in the bar, before going into dine. Chef Matt Louis has devised a delightful menu of international dishes which are also excellent value. For example, Lightly grilled Blue Fin tuna with shiso and pears makes a refreshing, moreish starter, while the likes of Tiger prawn and chive risotto with chilli jam, and Poached and roasted breast of chicken with Daupinoise potatoes and thyme jus are sumptuous, flavourful mains. Puddings are rather good too - don't miss the sinfully good Pecan and raisin pudding with maple syrup and custard sauce. A gem.
