Filled with opera luvvies, tourists and eccentric Londoners, Sarastro has earned itself an iconic reputation in London's West End for its opulent décor and flamboyant food.
Part decorative stage set, part bric-a-brac store, the dining room at Sarastro – which is located in Drury Lane - features crushed velvet tablecloths, cosy booths and private “opera booth” seating on the theatrical mezzanine level overlooking the restaurant.
Classic dishes include the lamb shank, the grilled sea bass and the pan-fried mussels in tomato sauce. On Sunday lunchtimes, and Sunday and Monday evenings, there is live opera and on Thursdays, there is a swing and Motown show.

Can't recommend this place enough!!! The atmosphere and decor is extremely unique and I was made to feel very welcome by all of the staff. We didn't get to eat much because our friend didn't feel very well (before we ate), but the waiter brought food and drink to make her feel better before we ordered (which he did not charge for). We had some starters which were all SO DELICIOUS. We couldn't...Read More
I love how theater-like this place was! The food was wonderful, and the waiter was polite as could be. We didn't get to experience the entertainment, but it was definitely a different experience regardless and we loved it.Read More

We were not sure if our very sweet, but...Read More
