    I'm not sure you'll find something right next to the hotel, but I'd head over to Holborn and eat at Pearl, which is very nice. If you like Korean food, Asadal at the Holborn Tube is also good.

      zuriga - and carabosse - the best korean restaurant i've been to in central london is koba on rathbone street. its a tad more expensive than asadal, but oh so worth it.

        Thanks, I'll be sure to give Koba a try. New Maldon is closer. :-)

          I agree with howler -- Koba is great. Make sure to ask for a table upstairs. Asadal is good as well, but kind of a rip-off and doesn't have the exciting atmosphere of Koba.

            Never been to Koba but it has just jumped right up my must visit list looking at some reviews. Yook Hwei looks fantastic.

        What about the original Hakkasan on Hanway Place? Less than 5 minutes walk away.

        Most of the good Fitzrovia places are closed Sunday evenings.

          Hakkasan is very nice and although the a la carte menu is v pricey, the dim sum menu is good value for unusual and interesting dim sum - not the usual Chinatown range.
