Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have taken the decision to temporarily close until things improve. We hope to see you soon and good luck!

Lying as it does in the heart of London’s theatre district, Sarastro is extremely popular for both pre and post theatre dining and it is always worth making a reservation whenever possible. Birthdays and other social events can be accommodated and the full programme of entertainments and events is regularly posted on the website for advance bookings.

Online bookings can be taken for parties of up to 8 people but larger parties are advised to phone the restaurant directly to make their reservation in advance.

Please read our Terms and Conditions before making a booking.
