London Restaurants-- Recommendations Needed

  • c

We will be in London in July. Looking for recommendations for three nights. We are staying in Kensington, so anything in that area is good for the first (Sunday) night.

Next night. . . anywhere. Within 20-30 minutes from High Street Kensington tube stop is good.

Finally, something near the Globe Theatre.

Generally, most any kind of cusine is good. Not looking for bargains-- though we'd like to keep it under US$100 per person. The quality of the food is the most important thing.

Though we'd like to hear from Londoners, advice from anyone is welcome, and many thanks in advance.

  1. I'm an American living in London and have had the fortune of eating out a lot in this city. A few of my favorites are listed below:

    Near Kensington on Abingdon Road is The Abingdon-54 Abingdon Road a gastro pub with an ever changing menu. It's nice and relaxed, especially if you're dealing with jetlag. 011 44(0)20 7937 3339

    In central London, try to get reservations at the Wolseley on Picadilly 011 44(0)207499 6996 . It's in an old car dealership. Great food, reasonable prices and fun atmosphere.

    If you like Indian food, go to Amaya in Knightsbridge-Halkin Arcade- 011 44 (0)87 0780 8174 It's not your traditional curry- more like Indian Tapas. The food is cooked on one of three types of grill.

    I've added a link to a great restaurant review site in London.

    Have fun.

    1. FISH, in the shadow of the Southwark Cathedral and a five minute walk to The Globe.

      1. Near Globe:

        OXO tower restaurant (8th floor) amazing views and short walk along river - www.restaurant-guide.com/13702/
        Tas has a branch on the same road as Globe - www.tasrestaurant.com

        I'm not so familiar with the High Street Kensington area, but I have been to Awana (85 Sloane Avenue), which was a fantasitic Malaysian - www.awana.co.uk

        1. The Red Fort is amazing--Indian food with a nouvelle flair. Expensive, but worth the money.

          1. Best place to go near high street kensignton has to be Maggie Jones. Make sure you reserve a table...info and reviews here.
