I made it there in 1999, after walking completely around Waterloo station a few times looking for it. I expected a typical european storefront on a quiet street- ha! It was very busy around there, and my mental image was that it was nestled in the shadows of a large overpass. Not the image you get from the album cover.

Didn't get the whole different-prices-for-dine-in-vs.-take-away thing and ticked off the proprietor in the process of changing our minds. And, of course, somewhere I've got a picture of myself out front.
