Romantic fun dinner rec, London.

Its my anniversary friday night and I have yet to decide on a venue! Looking for somewhere a bit special and romantic, but not too serious/snobby. We are 23/25 - budget no more than £30 - 40 each (not too fussed about wine). Central, east or north london preferred. We like italian, japanese, asian/mediterannean in general... We don't eat pork/shellfish. Love fish and veggies!

and also somewhere I will be able to book at this notice!

Thanks for any suggestions!

    thanks all... i had looked at andrew edmunds but it just didn't seem our thing. definitely want to try Yauatcha at some point but dim sum is v restricted on choice for us. We ended up going to Latium - bit quieter than our usual haunts but a real treat, relaxed but sophisticated and lovely service. And ravioli which looked like flowers :)

      Andrew Edmunds definitely fits your bill. It was the first restaurant I took my wife to when we arrived in London and she loved it. We've been back plenty of times.....

        You may want to try the Bleeding Heart Bistro. It is in a square that is off the beaten path and quite reasonable.

          I think Andrew Edmunds in Soho is one of the most romantic places in London and would fit within your budget. Maybe also try Yauatcha - you should be able to get in for Friday
