Other Bush Theatre favourites…

Madani Younis loves Ochi’s5284

“I love Ochi’s because it’s been there probably since the 60s/70s and it’s an absolute staple of the community in Shepherd’s Bush. Because of the music venues in the area, such as the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, now known as the O2, Ochi has this really inspiring wall of fame, with shots of people that have been there to eat, like Bob Marley, Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill. 

The food is amazing and it’s a beautiful place to hang out; you never know who you are going to meet or what you’re going to end up talking about.”

Barney Norris loves PatioBarney Norris

“It’s an excellent Polish restaurant, partly charming for its superb name and also for its dumplings- they have a vegetarian dumpling that I can recommend very highly!”
