CicadaCicada, the first of the Ricker restaurants, which has been open since 1996, is near to Smithfields Market in the buzzing Clerkenwell area. The restaurant, bar and private dining room have all been recently refurbished and the mix of strong design, fun and consistently good value pan-Asian food make it a winner all round. Expect typical treats of Asian cuisine: the best in dim sum, tempura, sashimi and futo maki as well as salads, curries, bbq and roast dishes and a selection of tempting desserts.
