Lunch near Royal College of Art - London
Gah 2 years at that place, and, let me tell you, very few good lunches nearby. If you can, get somebody to get you into the Senior Common Room , do it! Very good food, lux silver, and fabulous art. Also, sometimes you can sneak into the lunch room at the Royal Geographic Society.
Budget? The immediate area is a bit barren, though there are a couple of nice places on Kensington Road/Kensington High St, and a couple of chains.
Zaika looks nice from the outside and gets some good reviews. 19.50 for a set lunch:
L Restaurant is nearer to where I live (Olympia) but is still good. Might be a bit far to lunch, but some nice tapas:
Launceston Place is nearby. Would be my choice. Good set lunch deal:
Then there are the usual Wagamama's, Giraffe's and Strada's nearby, plus a couple of places in South Kensington which I'm not too familiar with, apart from the Kensington Creperie which is good.
