The food in La Cheminee was very nice but my experience of this restaurant was marred by the theft of my handbag on the evening of 31st July 2008 and the response to the incident by the restaurant.
The restaurant representative was less than helpful, did not offer to call the police, did not offer to search the restaurant or out back and I was told the cc tv cameras (there were two) were not working. Noone made a note of my name.
The day time staff the following day were much more sympatheic and at least took my name. I would like to warn other visitors of the theft in the hope that people will be vigilant and to avoid it happening to someone else. In case it has happened to anyone else reading this, the crime was reported to Paddington Green police station.
