For under £10 you can enjoy a half lobster and chips. A good lobster too - fresh and unpretentious served up in the same way as the cod and chips, in a fold up disposable box. There's scampi, bacon rolls, mini bottles of wine and Whitstable ales.

I’ve been to the Shangri La a few times in the last couple of years. I had no idea how good it was and then someone fortunately recommended it as one of their favorite restaurants in Whitstable. I’ve never taken anyone there who has left disappointed.

Next to me where a couple who were quizzing each other in the way you do when you’ve been sent on a blind date. I am guessing it must have been because they left before the starters arrived. Another couple moved inside as the sun went down, so my friend and I had the courtyard to ourselves, with nothing other than the Buddha and his ever watchful, benign gaze.
