If you are stuck at London Victoria Station at Iftar

It is Ramadan and you are fasting. If it is almost Iftar time and you are stuck near London's Victoria Station here are some tips for you.

The restuarant is located just a 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station at 8 Lower Grosvenor Place (020 8617 0288).
