Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant Review

: Smollensky's in Canary Wharf has the advantage of a terrace which fills to overflowing in good weather. But the whole enterprise is busy. Downstairs, the bar, with its loud music pumping up the atmosphere, heaves after office hours with local workers. Lunch is the main meal and the menu covers an awful lot of geography, from pastas to burgers, from Cajun dishes to imaginative salads, teriyaki to South American steaks. It’s fun, buzzing and predictable. Also at 105 The Strand, WC2, 020-7497 2101.
