Sarastros – one of the best theatre restaurants in town

Enter a world of drama, passion and excitement where exuberant colour, glittering display and joyous music meet exotic cuisine to create a truly unforgettable dining experience.  Sarastros restaurant on Drury Lane is where I met my aunt and sister for super last night and I had forgotten how fantastic it was.  I last went about 10 years ago and it’s still as magical.  “It’s like walking in to the most amazing theatre props cupboard” said my auntie, who’s an actress.

You have the choice of sitting downstairs in one of the many booths or upstairs in a box.  The whole place in decorated to within an inch of it’s life with random props such as witches, costume jewellery and fake fruit hanging in every conceivable corner but somehow it works.  Best of all they have performances on Sunday and Monday that consist of violinists and opera singers.  They put on an amazing show with lots of humour and involve the audience.  I can’t say too much otherwise it will ruin the surprise, you really must see for yourself.  Oh, and the food is lovely too!
