- Quite awkward to navigate store. But food on the ground floor is delicious!
Alexandra (31 years old)
- The most strangest halls are Di Milo’s. This boutique, more like a strip club. It was opened by the daughter of Mohamed Al-Fayed (owner of Harrods). The clothes in this store are super sexual

- What do I like the best in Harrods – is food halls, the best place on earth to buy products. Food is excellent. You can find a sushi bar, a seafood bar and an oyster bar. I always visit this place when I arrive in London.
