Advice for central London eating (with 2 kids) Feb 3-6
Hello all! We are traveling to London Feb 3-6 and have 6 meals to plan. We have two kids in tow so we'll be staying central which precludes any trips out to the 'burbs to hunt down the best.
Our objectives are: Pakistan, Thai, Lebanese, Mexican, Chinese, and Indian.
We've narrowed the list down to:
Pakistan: Tayyab's (old standby favorite)
Thai: Patara or Busaba? Any central options that are better? 101 in Hammersmith is too far east.
Chinese: Bar Shu or Mr. Kong's -- or any other Chinatown standby
Mexican: Chilango's on Chancery Lane or Benito's Hat (Goodge St) or Tortilla (Oxford)
Indian: Wide open here
Any suggestions much appreciated-- kids are hyper so nothing elegant or luxurious. Just good food.
Or go to Wahaca in Canary Wharf for dinner. When I used to work out there (about a year ago) you could always get a seat, even on a Friday night. It's just a few stops on the Jubilee line.
New World in Chinatown is great for dim sum, they still have the little trolleys that you pick food from. I also like sichuan food from Red'n'hot, but it might be too spicy for the children.
I like Churchill Arms on Kensington Church Street for Thai.
