Maximini Chinese Restaurant — London

Maximini Chinese Restaurant — London

On Friday I met up with my besties for a Chinese. No ordinary Chinese, Maximini is Jimmy Choo’s culinary offering in Bayswater. When we arrived, we realised it’s not exactly Novikov or fine dining as we were expecting. However we sat down and ordered our food as […]

Tas Restaurant — North Cheam, Surrey

Tas Restaurant — North Cheam, Surrey

I always get excited when a local restaurant opens that isn’t Italian or Indian, as is usually the case near where I live. Tas opened last year and serves authentic Turkish cuisine, and the best bit — it has a real clay oven/tandoor call it […]

Fatburger — Camden Town

Fatburger — Camden Town

On Monday I went along to Fatburger’s prelaunch event organised by the good people behind the Facebook group The Best Halal Burger In The World . Fatburger is an American hamburger chain with branches across the world including Pakistan and the Middle East, and now their […]

Tiger Lily of Osterley

Tiger Lily of Osterley

Tiger Lily is a beautiful restaurant tucked away on a quiet side road off the A4 in Osterley. I’ve been here many times but never got round to writing a review! It’s a great place for a romantic night out or a catch up with […]

Stax Diner

Stax Diner

Finally I made it to Stax Diner for a cousin’s birthday. Located in the ever so cute Kingly Court off Carnaby Street, Stax is an American style burger place. I’d heard a lot about it over social media and on Curious Foodie so I was […]

Feng Shang Princess

Feng Shang Princess

Feng Shang Princess is a Chinese restaurant with a difference. It’s on a boat! Yes that’s right a floating boat on the Cumberland Basin in Primrose Hill, just by London Zoo. The setting is certainly different but once your inside it’s easy to forget you’re in […]

Gilgamesh ‘Alternative Xmas Menu’

Gilgamesh ‘Alternative Xmas Menu’

The festive season is upon us, hooray! For many of us this means eating eating and more eating. If you’re looking for a venue for a special Xmas lunch/dinner Gilgamesh has the answer. Located in Stables Market in Camden, so it’s not the easiest place […]

Comptoir Libanais — London

Comptoir Libanais — London

We stumbled upon this Lebanese restaurant after an afternoon at the Natural History Museum and festive ice skating. It was Halloween and we had five kids in tow, two vegetarians and one on the four hour body diet. So finding somewhere to accomadate all dietary […]

Cabana Brasilian BBQ

Cabana Brasilian BBQ

Cabana is a Brazilian restaurant in Westfield London (Shephards Bush). It is a large, upbeat and comfy kind of place where you’d go for a casual night out. Cabana was buzzing with diners but it wasn’t too difficult to get a table on a saturday night without […]

Simply India – by Atul Kochhar, Mauritius

Simply India – by Atul Kochhar, Mauritius

Update: After speaking with Atul Kochhar he informed me he is no longer affiliated with Simply India. When I ate there it was marketed as his restaurant. On our last night in Mauritius we wanted to go out with a bang so decided to eat at […]

Dining at St. Regis

Dining at St. Regis

Sometimes you have to let the pictures do the talking. Below are photographs taken of a selection of dishes we ate at the St Regis Resort from three of the restaurants. We did not get bored of the food at all despite predominantly eating at these […]

Guanabana in Camden is a family run Latin American & Caribbean restaurant with a real chill-out vibe and good hearty food. I visited here as part of a Halal Gems Dining Club event (in collaboration with the Emerald Network), where the private dining area was hired […]

The Meat Co. — Westfield, London

The Meat Co. — Westfield, London

An overdue night out with my best friend brought me to The Meat Co. which used to be called The Meat & Wine Company and still is in Australia. This international chain of South African influenced restaurants realised the potential of the halal market accidentally. […]
