Squaremeal Review of Circus ?

If you've ever wanted to run away and join the circus, this cabaret venue with its acrobats, dancers and burlesque performers is for you. The food is no novelty act however, with a confident, recently re-launched menu of pan-Asian specialties that makes telling use of luxury ingredients. Recent highlights have included rich beef and foie gras gyoza, punchy chilli salt squid in a delicate tempura batter and a dish of flaky Chilean sea bass dressed with a vibrant sauce of shaoxing rice wine, garlic and ginger. Such theatrically presented plates are ideal for sharing, with big groups taking advantage of the large central table that doubles as a stage. A sexy sci-fi interior, rocking tunes and kicking cocktails ramp up the party atmosphere, while friendly service is 'as entertaining as the acts'.

    Do you fancy a night out with a difference? Circus in Covent Garden might be the ticket. It is cocktail bar and cabaret restaurant that serves an eclectic Pan Asian menu.
    The main space is dominated by a stage which doubles up as a dining table. If you choose to sit here, you will get up close and personal with the performances. There is a cocktail bar and lounge at the end of the room where you can just have drinks and watch the show. The shows come on between courses and it looks like it corresponds to the guests who are sitting around the stage.

    I thought Circus was going to serve up something along the lines of the London Cabaret Club – a show that was fun, but inoffensive, not too risqu&. But Circus is an altogether racier night. Not so at first, when a duo dressed in polka dot swimsuits a la 50s pin ups did an aerial hoop performance against a backdrop of doo wop music. But each act got naughtier and sexier, culminating in a fire-eating performance to Welcome to the Jungle, where the fire eater whipped out her tatas and set her pasties alight!
