On our recent visit to the Rivington Greenwich, we dined, feasted on a delightful menu of sexy summer foods and sipped a selection of Plymouth Gin based cocktails while we watched the sun set on what was a beautiful summers day in London. The Rivington Greenwich is a British restaurant with an emphasis on simple dishes based in the centre of Greenwich, literally...

London’s hidden secrets: The Florentine Restaurant – Brasserie-style menu, British bubbles, craft beers, signature cocktails and DJ sessions.

Florentine Restaurant

The Florentine Restaurant is a brand new opening situated only minutes from London South Bank’s trendy Lower Marsh and Waterloo, opposite Lambeth North tube station and offers an all-day dining restaurant and bar with a refreshing and relaxed vibe. Well that’s what it says on its website, and when I arrived at the Florentine restaurant, I simply had to concur....

M Restaurant in the Zig Zag Building – Review

M restaurant victoria

Just try to walk past the M without peeping inside, it's something you'd probably struggle to do with their eye- catching signs and their even more arresting array of wine and champagne collection on its street level, where M Wine store is housed. However set beneath the illuminating glow are two contrasting experiences, to the left the wickedly light and...

Review: The Blues Kitchen, Brixton

Blues kitchen Brixton

With its original venues in Camden and Shoreditch, The Blues Kitchen has already made a name for itself; boasting classic Barbecue dishes, New Orleans inspired soul food, an unrivalled Bourbon selection and regular live music.

Review: Flat Iron, Shoreditch

Flat Iron, Shoreditch

I had been told about Flat Iron several times, but as steak does not usually come cheap, especially in London, I assumed it would be out of my league for a spare of the moment, mid-week meal. I was incorrect, and have been so many times since that I should have some kind of loyalty card. We visited the newest Flat...

Review: Sugar Dumplin Caribbean BBQ & Bar

sugar dumplin restaurant review

Fancy your own slice of the Caribbean? Then Sugar Dumplin's newest branch offering soul food and copious amounts of rum could be just the joint you've been looking for. Tucked neatly inside Kingston-upon-Thames Rotunda complex, you'd find it difficult not to saunter inside with it's eye catching neon lights, artistic street art and ear grabbing music from outside and within. The insides...

Hidden Gem – Namaste Kitchen (Camden) Review

namaste kitchen venue photo

I had the pleasure of dinning at one of Camden's hidden gems, the Namaste Kitchen. Looking in from the outside, you could easily walk past this restaurant many a times without even noticing it's there. It subdued exterior has no reflection on the interior or the amazing food on offer at the Namaste Kitchen. Comfortable seating, ambient lighting that's slightly romantic...

Review: Anderson & Co

anderson and co

There are very few oasis of clam in London and even fewer that can offer excellent food in beautiful surroundings. Anderson and Co in Peckham is on the edge o the hipster scene but isn’t yet full of beards ordering craft ale. While we popped by for dinner, it’s called us back for brunch at the weekend and we’re also...

Review: Lotus – Not your average Indian Cuisine

Lotus, a fine Indian cuisine dining restaurant situated at 17 Charing Cross, London, WC2H 0EP, which makes its location perfect for a dinner & show or casino or any other activity or outing you could do in central London. With a perfect location, we had to ask ourselves, whether the food was perfect too or was it just a farce. In London you can...

Review: Cafe Mish – Mayfair

Mouth-watering gourmet sandwiches you need to go out of your way to try. Based in the heart of Mayfair, London at 1a Shepherd Street, it’s not actually the largest of eateries you’ve ever seen. In fact, it only seats 6 customers but this cute little establishment also offers takeaway and delivery to the local area and we can guarantee after...

Review: Pizza Union – Kings Cross

Super quick pizza for those on the go, Pizza in fast food restaurant form hits the spot. The first thing to note about Pizza Union in Kings Cross is its size; Think at least two medium sized restaurants in one. With huge windows looking out onto Pentonville Road letting in the light, makes the feel of the restaurant quite fresh...

Review: Bubbleology in Angel Islington

I visited Bubbleology for the first time last week and I had the opportunity to try their drinks. Bubbleology is unique and fun where customers can create their own tea. You can mix flavours up, starting from choosing a milk tea or fruit tea and then by customising your tea with bubbleology’s special flavoured jelly, popping boba and extra tapioca...

Review: Pho Café – Covent Garden

Fresh, light and filling? Hell's yeah! This place knows how to cook up a real treat. As we walked up to Pho café/restaurant in Covent Garden; we peered through the window at what looked like a dimly lit café, with high stalls around the window, and large benches to accommodate big groups. The décor was a modern street style theme. A diverse mix of...

Review: The Cuban – Camden

Situated in the stables market, the Cuban brings a refreshing taste of South America to the bustling heart of Camden town. The décor comprises of exposed brickwork, wooden accents, exotic artwork and is awash with bright colours, whilst the pretty outside seating area overlooks the market, making it the perfect location for a spot of people watching. We were greeted by...

Gilgamesh – Restaurant Review

Situated in the heart of Camden's Lock you would be forgiven for not realising that a restaurant like this was there. On arrival you are greeted with an escalator that brings you up into the venue. Ambient lighting and spacious seating is all part of the Gilgamesh appeal. Tonnes of crafted woodwork, a huge ceiling that opens up in the summer...

Shaka Zulu Restaurant Review

Shaka Zulu is a restaurant, bar and club situated in the heart of Camden serving exotic South African food. Walking through the doors I was hit by the feeling of wow! I mean picture the setting beautiful ornate carvings on every surface with rich mahogany wood and statues of Zulu warriors and animals, a vast yet intimate space with what...

sticks n sushi

I went to check out the chic new Sticks 'n' Sushi in the brand new Canary Wharf development at Cross Rail Place. So new and shiny! Owwwwwww. On first impressions, it looked like I was walking into a chic monochrome restaurant with a big black desk at the entrance and lots of sharp lines everywhere. Then I noticed lots of...

Roka: The Japanese Blockbuster of a Restaurant – Review

Have you ever read a restaurant review that consisted of only one paragraph? Well that was my initial thoughts on how to write this review for Roka (Canary Wharf), due to the simple fact that, YOU MUST EAT THERE. However no one wants to read one paragraph do they? No I suspect you want me to tell you about the amazing...

Review: Nipa Thai – Lancaster London

Arriving at the Lancaster in London the building itself was certainly grand inside. The Nipa Thai restaurant is located on the first floor.

Review: Pot and Grill (Stratford)

I love Caribbean food but strictly home cooked food-in other words I am damn picky a chef’s nightmare I assume. I have been to a few Caribbean restaurants and the last one left me scarred, battered and damn high because there was way too much sugar in every dish. The starter was sweet (it was meant to be savoury),...

Kouzu Restaurant serves up some top-notch Japanese food. Where do I even begin? Well first things first it's situated in Belgravia in a beautiful Grade 2 listed building, let me tell you this venue sure brings a touch of class to the table. The waitress who served us was every so helpful in helping me decide what to order and...

48 hours in Marrakech – Romantic Winter Getaway

You have a measly weekend to recharge your batteries, grab some sunshine, eat, drink and be merry and get back for work on time for Monday morning. Then I'm about to explain why I found there was no better place than Marrakech in Morocco. We flew off on a Friday afternoon via Easy Jet on a very manageable just over...

K West Hotel & Spa Review

k west spa and hotel

Hotel stay with a glitzy spa, Hells Yeah! Now that's what I'm talking about. Upon arriving at the K West Hotel and Spa located in Hammersmith, the first thing that took my eye was an unusual and beautifully lit exterior to the hotel. It seamed out of nowhere a glass box had popped up, with white flowing drapes and...

Review – Oblix Restaurant at the Shard

Twas a dark and windy night walking through London Bridge, my destination wasn't that much further but the chill on the wind had made my pace increase from leisurely to hurried. I looked up at the night sky and towering above me was my destination, Oblix Restaurant in the Shard in all it's glory. The rooftop lighting up the skyline and the impressive design that...
