1980. Pancake Restaurant. Russell Square, London

Does anyone remember a Belgian pancak restaurant in or around Russell Square in London? I was there as a child in 1980 and ate there. I haven't a clue if it's still around and am curious if it is. It boasted of having over 100 different kinds of pancakes, and all were served crepe style, that is one to a plate. It may have not been a Belgian-style restaurant, actually. I do remember that it WASN'T English or French and it had a funky, fun menu and look. I know that isn't much to go on, but if it made an impression on me that's lasted almost 30 years, I expect it's had a similar effect on others.
