Critique My Meals, Looking for Suggestions

Hi all,

My girlfriend and I will be in London for several days. After much research, and drawing on the 36 hours I spent there last year, I've come up with the following restaurants-

Hawksmoor at Spitalfields
Opera Tavern
Newman Arms
Moti Mahal
Great Queen St
random food stalls at Borough

I need a place for Sunday dinner, and some lunch ideas around Buckingham Palace, or at least on the way from there to Tower of London- not exactly on the way, but considering Belgo? Open to any cuisine and since I already have some splurges, would like to keep it around 25-40 per person including some wine or beers. Thanks in advance!

  1. Excellent Cantonese food at Tuli, on Tooley street, near Tower Bridge.

    1. Moti Mahal is the only one on the list that I've eaten at - but I regard as the best Indian food experience I've had. They have a set menu offer which is an absolute steal.

        I like Belgo for frites, moules and roast chicken. Just yesterday I noticed there's a new, fairly large one on Kingsway near the Holborn Tube and Great Queen St. You can't go wrong with a meal at Great Queen St. or stop at Anchor & Hope on the way to Tower Bridge.. the restaurant is five minute's walk from the Tube at Waterloo.
