1.Royal China


According to Time Out, This  dim sum spot is always a pleasure to visit. Its popularity ensures a lively atmosphere, and it is authentic, perfectly prepared little dishes are above the rest. The long dining room at this original Queensway branch is lined in mirrors and black lacquered walls, with depictions of curling waves and geese soaring above.

You could just eat from the dim sum list, but the main menu offers fantastic Cantonese and regional Chinese dishes. The Shaolin monk vegetarian clay pot contained an outstandingly fresh assortment of Chinese vegetables: bamboo, lotus root, mini pak choi and tofu, all on cellophane noodles.

Some of the  best little packages of Cantonese treats are served here. Beef balls feature wonderfully light ground beef with strong accents of ginger and water chestnuts. Delicious wun tun soup has light dumplings floating in a rich broth with an undertone of five-spice, adding a depth rarely found in this classic soup.


2.Curry Place

This Bayswater takeout delivers throughout west London, offering the full range of Indian dishes from prawn puri starters to tandoori mixed grills. Chefs specials include butter chicken, lamb gosht and king prawn masala. Vegetarian options are also available.

The chain began in South Africa when its founders took over a Johannesburg peri-peri restaurant called Chickenland. The formula is chicken marinated for 24 hours and grilled to order with the chilli and a choice at what level. Customers can order at the counter but are served at table. There is a range of decent sides, too, such as peri-peri-seasoned chips and good grilled sweetcorn. The plain chips are a bit of a weak point.



Nando’s is a casual restaurant with food that is energetically spiced, where so many of its competitors are bland, and grilled to order.

Kennedys has the best fish and chips in London. Kennedy’s has by far the best fish & chips. They serve a large piece of cod and a mountain of perfectly cooked chips at a very decent price. A quid and 20 pence gives you chips from this Clerkenwell mainstay. There’s a large portion of chips or fry’s available for £1.80 as well. The chips are thick and golden – firm on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Kennedy’s has a takeaway or to go entrance and a spacious dining room with friendly table service provide opportunities for a quick bite or a sit down option.






They have big portions of fish, platefuls of whitebait and plenty of other options. Sausages and savoury pies are a treat and the chips are always perfect fresh and hot with just enough crisp. Its a  good place to consider comfort food and observe the cab culture in the UK.

This is one of the best restaurants in London and is a hidden gem. It’s always packed with people and requires that you book a table in advance because there are only 6 tables in the entire restaurant. The chef  is friendly and you can and ask him to do a tasting menu with whatever he thinks is best. There is a good selection. Everything on the menu is amazing and you absolutely cannot beat the price. The grilled meats are great, skewers as well as the salad and their is a limited beer and wine selection, but I’ve always liked what was available; wine-wise there is a red and white Lebanese wine option.

I would eat here every week if I could get a table! everything on the menu is amazing and you absolutely cannot beat the price. The grilled meats are great and  the skewers, parsely salad as well as the hummus are all amazing. Their is a limited beer and wine selection, but I’ve always liked the spirits they offer. This is definitely a foodie choice.
