Been a couple of yrs since there were suggestions for this area. Am here for a week & have some dinners lined up in London, but need to be out here a few nights. Help!

    Bacco is a great-to-excellent neighbourhood Italian restaurant. They make all of their own fresh pasta; carbonara i had was one of the best id ever tried. Extremely gregarious hosts.

      In Richmond:

      The Bingham for highish end modern Brit.

      La Buvette - Brit owned and cheffed but very French

      Saffron - town centre Persian

      Just over the river in Twickenham:

      Tangawizi - posh Indian, with an African spin (owning family are expelled east African asians)

      In nearby Kew:

      Kew Grill - Last remaining (?) part of Worrall Thompson's empire - but very decent steaks in spite of.

      Palmyra - decent enough Lebanese. I was there only the other week. Still good food. Still no customers.

          Very close to Kingston is this popular place. I haven't been for several years, but the cooking is usually spot on.


          Kingston itself seems filled with every chain restaurant imaginable... and not much else, but if you want a decent hamburger or like Jamie's, then there's lots to choose from.
