Indian Accent

Indian food forms a significant part of my diet (mainly because I’m Indian and this is the food I grew up on and loveee). A lot of classic Indian dishes are accidentally plant based and many can be adapted to remove yoghurt or butter making them suitable for vegans. I’ve found that most fine dining Indian restaurants…

Farzi Cafe

Already a hotspot across Dubai and India, its time for the modern spice bistro to shine in London. Farzi Café specialises in Indian food with a twist, famous for its unique presentation and gastronomical dining. Located on busy Haymarket, I’m sure this restaurant will be a popular spot with both Londoners and tourists. I visited…

Brasserie of Light

The Brasserie of Light is Selfridges latest gem, perfect for a well deserved shopping break or special occasion. I visited the restaurant to celebrate my best friends engagement and it was a lovely evening. The chic restaurant is part of The Ivy group and the service and diverse British and internationally inspired menu reflects their…

Brigadiers

The JKS restaurant group behind dining wonders, including Hoppers, Bao and Trishna, continue to take over London opening restaurants each offering unique dining experiences. Brigadiers is one of the newer members of the family and it certainly lives up to the high standards JKS have set. The club-house style restaurant specialises in fancy, BBQ Indian…

The W Dining Series

I was very eager to try The W vegan takeover by Ravinder Bhogal as soon as I first heard about it and drooled over the mouth-watering menu. It’s not often a restaurant in London launches a vegan menu takeover. This is the second in the W hotel’s dining series at The Perception Bar, the first…

Asia de Cuba

I went to Asia de Cuba recently for my sisters’ birthday lunch and we had a fantastic time! The chic restaurant, located in the lavish St Martins Hotel, is well know for its memorable, retro decor and flavourful food. Being a book worm, I especially loved the colourful book case in the centre of the restaurant….

The Gilbert Scott

Lavish decor, a grand dining hall and sophisticated, vibrant food are just a few of the many great qualities The Gilbert Scott can boast of. I enjoyed a lovely evening here recently, including a kitchen tour and a contemporary English meal, at the restaurant in the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.   It was great to…

Tamarind Kitchen

Tamarind of Mayfair has a new sista! Tamarind Kitchen is the latest in the wave of new Indian restaurants hitting London. Being the newest member of the reputable Tamarind Collection family, behind Tamarind of Mayfair and Zaika of Kensington, there can only be high expectations of what this restaurant will bring to the table. Tamarind of Mayfair was…

Lokhandwala

We’re seeing newbie Indian restaurants poppadom-ing up every month and the demand from Londoners for traditional Indian dishes with a contemporary twist is veryyyy high. Other recently opened Indian hotspots include Kricket, Cinnamon Bazaar and DUM London.  We can’t get enough and I’m enjoying seeing what each new restaurant brings to the table with their…

Holborn Dining Room

Brunch. Everyone, myself included, is so into it, it might as well become one of our essential weekend meals. Most restaurants that cater for the weekend brunch crowd in London have similar menus and it’s rare for a brunch spot to really stand out for me. By this I mean so mouth water-ingly delicious that I’d be excited…
