Anything new/ good in Kingston/Richmond?
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.
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.
