[London] Best Chinese, Indian, Japanese restaurants?
- sasicka Nov 4, 2008 03:00 AM
Hi, I am comming for my annual few days in London. Usually I have not chosen the restaurants but now its my turn, so I need some advice, please.
I am looking for the best Chinese, Indian and Japanese restaurants. Please no vegetarian restaurants.
Money is not a problem, I expect that the prices will be between 25-50 pounds pp... but the food should be the best so I can handle to pay more than that if necessary.
I am looking forward for your suggestions. Thank you very much,
Hunan is meant to be excellent - no menus - the chef chats to you and you discuss what your dietary requirements are. Last time friends went, it was £40 a head. I can't wait to go.
Yauatcha (and Hakkasan) but it won't be £25 a head unless you're very careful with the ordering and only have dim sum for lunch. I personally really like Pearl Liang for both dim sum and dinner.
Japanese - well Roka is great (one of my favourites) but you'll again struggle to eat for £25 a head. If you want down to earth, I like Jinkichi in Hampstead.
I haven't eaten at any good Indian places for a while, so can't help you there! I've reviewed all the restaurants I've mentioned, with photos, apart from Hunan, so have a look if you need to make decisions. Enjoy your foodie trip!

Helen - I've been reading your reviews for quite awhile now (adore and miss your blog!) and would love if you could help with these 2 threads on the best authentic Japanese food in case you're still lurking on here somewhere ;)
What are the must-order items at Jinkichi? Thanks in advance!
