Restaurant review

The Great Chase — Angel

The Great Chase — Angel

It’s been a while since I did a restaurant review but I felt The Great Chase was really worthy of a write-up. Not because it’s amazing but because it’s so different! The Great Chase is a charming, cosy restaurant in Islington High street. What makes […]

Breakfast at The Ivy Cafe — Wimbledon

Breakfast at The Ivy Cafe — Wimbledon

Going for breakfast is becoming one of my favourite things to do much to the detriment of my waistline. However if you’re going out for breakfast you may as well make it special. Sistered with The Ivy, the Ivy Cafe Wimbledon describes itself as a modern […]

Coffee Island —  Perfectly Engineered Coffee

Coffee Island — Perfectly Engineered Coffee

This week I went to learn all about coffee brewing at Coffee Island. Coffee Island is a Greek coffee chain which has its only London branch in Upper Saint Martin’s Lane, just behind Leicester Square station. Coffee Island is not like any other coffee shop I’ve […]

Breakfast at Nopi — Soho, London

Breakfast at Nopi — Soho, London

When you’re meeting a friend from the opposite side of London, it needs to be special. And what is more special than Yotam Ottolenghi’s restaurants? Not much else is the answer! Nopi is tucked away on Warwick Street in Soho very near to Liberty. We arrived in […]

Royal Nawaab London — An Evening of Gluttony

Royal Nawaab London — An Evening of Gluttony

After many unsuccessful attempts I finally made it to Royal Nawaab for an evening of overeating. After an hours drive (yes it took a whole hour) I parked up after seeing my friends queuing up outside. I was running a bit late so missed out on […]

Dishoom — Carnaby, London

Dishoom — Carnaby, London

It’s been a while since I’ve eaten somewhere worth reviewing. A relatively new addition to the Indian restaurant scene, Dishoom has really made its mark. There are hundreds of Indian restaurants in London so why does Dishoom always have queues outside? That’s for every branch […]

Meat Rack — Earlsfield, SW18

Meat Rack — Earlsfield, SW18

As London goes gourmet burger crazy Meat Rack is the most recent addition located in Earlsfield. Seems like every time we want to go out and eat as a family we end up in a burger joint. Not that I’m complaining mind you, I love a burger more […]

Yumn Brasserie — Croydon

Yumn Brasserie — Croydon

Although I live south of the river Thames it’s seldom I ever need to visit Croydon. Pictures of relatively new restaurant Yumn Brasserie’s burgers enticed me into making the not so long journey to South Croydon, a family birthday being the perfect excuse. So we […]

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 tv program ‘Curious Foodie’, so […]

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 […]

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 […]
