Housed in a magnificent mansion that boasts a Neo-Gothic facade, entering Le Victoria Hall sushi restaurant and lounge bar is akin to walking into a scene from a James Bond Movie; waiters are shaking cocktails, the chic clientele are sipping champagne and the sushi chefs are preparing sushi with such intense speed that you can't help but wonder whether they are in fact undercover spys with special martial arts training. The interior of Victoria Hall can certainly conjure up some fanciful imaginings; as the candle light of elegantly dressed tables flickers and the soft lounge music slows everything to a tranquil beat, diners munch on plates of freshly prepared sushi, served in the internal restaurant or on the large restaurant terrace. The restaurant's menu is reasonably priced, given the fantastic interior and service. For more details, and to view the full menu; visit the Victoria Hall website.
