Situated in Wigmore Street, just behind the world famous Selfridges, Fancy Crab brings the Arctic Ocean, Red King Crab the world's biggest and most famous crab to central London.

Hankies Marble Arch Review – Indian street food with twist

Hankies Marble Arch by Moment Hunter Digital

Named after the classic roomali roti folded into convenient “hankies”, this Marylebone restaurant offers Indian street food with a twist. Whether you’re planning a date or a get-together with friends, their tapas-sized plates are perfect for sharing.

5 reasons we love Dim Sum Sunday’s at Hakkasan

Hakkasan Hanway Place gallery

On a recent visit to Hakkasan Hanway Place, we enjoyed the delights of Hakkasan's Dim Sum Sunday menu. If you haven't visited this branch of Hakkasan, it's literally tucked, one minute away from Tottenham Court Road in, probably one of the most unsuspecting streets you could imagine. However, as soon as you arrive at the door, you will instantly realise you have...

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

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...

Date night at the Big Easy in Canary Wharf.

The Big Easy in Canary Wharf the type of place where you can impress someone on a date night without breaking the bank. It's low-key and relaxed, quiet enough to have a romantic conversation over dinner, yet loud enough to keep your conversation between you and your guest and not the whole restaurant. Not pretentious in its approach, the Big Easy...

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.

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...

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...
