Good eats near London W2 3QD (Bayswater)
I would be most grateful for any recs of good eats (good food, any kind, ambiance irrelevant, price tag preferably under in the 20-25 BGP per person range excluding alcohol) near the above address.
There are a number of places on Westbourne Park Road--about a 15 minute walk from where you are. Bring your large sunglasses to The Westbourne (you will understand once you get there on a nice day), and then head over to The Cow for a decent meal upstairs. Lucky 7 is billed as an American diner...I like it for its smallness...there are only 6 or so booths. Crazy Homies for American Mexican. A good friend of mine swears by Centonove for pizza and pasta...I've been there once and thought it was good, but nothing to swear by.
Royal China on Queensway.
Tom & Dick's on Alexander St for a nice loungey vibe with good service and cool art.
In short--many options...
You have a number some decent and relatively well priced spots on Westbourne Grove and surrounding area as well to those mentioned above
C&R for malaysian
Alounak for Persian/Iranian. Al Waha and others are also in the neighb and are discussed on the Paddington thread below
Durbar on Hereford road for Indian (much better than Khans on Westbourne grove which I avoid)
Taqueria for Mexican
On the budget end - and I hate to admit it - but Nandos for chicken, corn on the cob and chips is go in my book.
Love Nandos! They are always so nice there. I would 2nd that for one of those nights when you don't want to cook or spend ages in a restaurant, but you're looking for some decent fast food.
Bumpkin is a new place on Westbourne Grove - I've heard mixed reviews though, but its pretty close to you. Also Mandarin Kitchen on Baywater is great.
Would recommend as well for the quality ingredients and solid cooking- though the no reservation brasserie can lead to lengthy waits - and the crowd can be a bit see and be seen.
If you like wallpaper (off topic)- you should check out the Fat Badger (back on topic), which is really good, on the very north end of Portobello - they have my fave paper of the moment upstairs (see link below)
