Zaika of Kensington

Zaika of Kensington (member of the Tamarind Collection restaurant family) was one of the first Indian restaurants in London to receive a Michelin star and this is truly deserved. We had a fabulous North Indian dinner here to celebrate my sisters 30th birthday. You can really feel the Mughal palace influence with the authentic décor and ambience. A great group set menu in terms of variety, quantity and flavour. I enjoyed the meal so much that I kept eating and eating eventually feeling like I had to be rolled out of Zaika. Classy girl.

Osteria 60

Osteria 60 is a fabulous new Italian restaurant located in the Bagaloni Hotel opposite Kensington Gardens. The menu consists of contemporary Italian dishes by Chef Ivan Simeoli. It is an exquisite restaurant to try for the atmosphere and stylish dining experience. While the staff were incredibly kind and I couldn’t fault the service, if I come back I would skip straight to dessert. The vegetarian dishes were lacking that something special I was hoping for.
