The restaurant is mere minutes away from the Rivoli Cinemas, making it a fabulous spot to dine before or after a film. Our favourite part was the starters here, and a few little tweaks would have made the mains stand out that bit more. There’s plenty of choices to enjoy at Okra and they come jam-packed with flavour, served with the warm hospitality you’d expect.
