    Although it is a little trip from your hotel, I must urge you to visit one place in London.

    The Hunan in Pimlico ( just a short walk from Victoria tube ) is one of the best Hunan places on earth. The owner will not let you order or if you do he will snort in contempt. He will just bring dishes to you and you will be amazed. All are authentic and amazingly flavourful. This is one of the true treasures of our fair city

    Please, please do try it and just go with the flow.

    Well worth it

    Hope this helps
