Tas Restaurant

33 The Cut, South Bank, London SE1 8LF, UK – 020 7928 2111

Great place! we've used Tas a couple of times for big team lunches and they've always been super helpful and accommodating. We've always really enjoyed the food and it's great value for money. Staff are super friendly and always happy to facilitate our needs. Thanks Cem and the team!

Prompt service, affordable prices and extensive menu. The food is okay. Not bad, not great. Just okay. One of the dishes I ordered arrived almost cold. The restaurant itself is quite big and around dinner time it was full and noisy. It's a good place for large groups.

Tas Restaurant

72 Borough High St, London SE1 1XF, UK – 020 7403 7200

Nice ambience and attentive staff. Guitarist was very entertaining. I was a bit disappointed in my food. Lamb stew was a served with much of the rendered fat as the gravy. A bit pricey for what it ultimately was.

We went out for a birthday meal last night and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambiance with live music and excellent service from both our waiters !

Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill Restaurant

2-4 Catherine St, London WC2B 5JY, UK – 020 7240 4999

Very good deal with voucher 30 percent off. Service good. My main of fish and chips nice but more batter than fish. A pleasurable experience though and scallop starter lovely.

Good quality food. Service was a bit slow, and had to remind the waitress/waiter to bring the drinks. Tip. Avoid early evening as this is when the theatre crowd dine. By 19.30 most have left. Later is better.

Chinese Restaurants serving the London area

Chinese Cricket Club Restaurant

19 New Bridge St, London EC4V 6DB, UK – 0871 942 9190

The service and ambient are really good. The team is kind and helpful. Food is OK, nothing spectacular.

Just came back from a Valentines meal at this place. Great choice of menu for this lovey dovey day! However not came with a £35 per head price tag but it was decent compared to others. Food was nice, the prosecco was amazing! However absolutely died when l tasted their chocolate moose! A must have if you ever go there!

The Old Street Chinese Restaurant

186 Old St, London EC1V 9FR, UK – 020 7253 6346

The spicy fish is quite fair and authentic. Beef stomach was a tad salty. These dishes were better than in Chinatown. Owner is friendly and we found the service to be fine. They also have a much as you can eat hot pot, which is fair value if you are into different pieces of innards etc and have a big appetite. Beer selection a bit limited.

Really decent hotpot buffet place. Reasonably priced, the food are serve up to you as you pick from the food list then make your round(s) of order. They also have a fair policy of not wasting food, I think it's nice. Have been there few times, and always go out with happy stomach. If you see a Chinese restaurant in a foreign country where lots of chinese visit, it's hard to go wrong.

Bao Fa Garden Chinese Restaurant

County Hall Building, The Queens Walk, Lambeth, London SE1 7PB, UK – 020 7261 1196

This is amazing! I lived in Sichuan for 3 years, and I really miss authentic food from there. I am so happy for finding this place. I was told that I was choosing the food that only chinese usually order, and had some good chats and great service from the staff and manager. Ended up going twice in a week! Try the Sichuan spicy dishes!

Food was good but portions were a bit small, so we wanted to order a few more dishes. However, the waitress told us not to order any more because the kitchen was too busy?! Very strange experience...

The India

21 College Hill, London EC4R 2RP, UK – 020 7248 5855

Good good good if you like the Indian food you must try. Beautiful restaurant and regular price. I believe that I will go back.

Amazing food, lovely staff that couldn’t do more for us and a beautiful setting as the restaurant is under the building, quiet and romantic! Well worth the money and would love to go back again!

Darbaar Restaurant

1 Snowden St, London EC2A 2DQ, UK – 020 7422 4100

Brilliant and original take on Indian feed. We went on a Saturday night and it was remarkably quiet- which was fine for us but it deserves to be busier. Recommend.

Great food especially the Biryani. We enjoyed out mid week dinner at the restaurant Special thanks to the staff member Manjeet for his great customer service and hospitality at the restaurant. Will definitely visit again.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Antonio's Ristorante

Rear of, 137 Upper St, London N1 1QP, UK – 020 7226 8994

Delicious, authentic food; amazing service; cosy and beautiful decor and atmosphere. This restaurant is a jewel!! I’ll be going back again!

Not great for vegetarians. Mostly very cheesy things can make you feel a bit sick after.

Azzurro

1 Sutton Walk, Lambeth, London SE1 7ND, UK – 020 7620 1300

Hello, I went here with my family last week and I have to say that it really was a great place. The food was very enjoyable and the place was very relaxing with quick and easy service.

Good portions. Tasty choices. Friendly service.

Ristorante Olivelli

61 The Cut, Lambeth, London SE1 8LL, UK – 020 7261 1221

Not as authentic as it says. Staff were great and lovely atmosphere but food was mediocre and expensive. Pizza Express beats it easily for quality. I got the distinct feeling that the ingredients all came from Costco. Actually, the tables did come from a pizza express so there is some similarity!

What a lovely restaurant! Food is excellent. We had the pasta with pistachio white sauce, yummy! Came back again for the same dish! We had the same waiter both times as he was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine.

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Just F.A.B. Food Bus in London

459, 455 Hackney Rd, London E2 9DY, UK – 07414 917637

I just randomly stumbled on this place on the way home on a rainy Saturday afternoon. I ordered two vegan cheese burgers, one fries and one chips to take away. Back at home - I’m so impressed that I have stopped eating it to write this review! It’s so delicious! Anyone with any diet will love this food as it’s superb! Will definitely be going back.

I had panelle and veg burger ordered via Uber eat... delicious! The focaccia bun is a proper treat!

Sagar Vegetarian, Covent Garden

31 Catherine St, London WC2B 5JS, UK – 020 7836 6377

My husband and I visited Sagar at the recommendation of a London local about a year ago and were pleased with the experience as we were just discovering how much we love Indian food. However, we visited again today and were treated pretty rudely by staff for not ordering what they felt like was enough food (we split a few dishes between the two of us and had also eaten just about two hours prior so we didn't want a lot). Even though the food was good, I'm not sure we'll return - there's lots of options for Indian food in London and we'd much rather have it paired with respectful service.

Yum! Very nice, and friendly. Good food, especially because you can order from the onion and garlic free menu. Which is perfect if you happen to be allergic to garlic. :D

Thegate Vegetarian restaurant

379a St John St, Clerkenwell, London EC1V 4LD, UK

Don't understand how anyone could rate this below a four. Visited this restaurant a number of times and every time the service and food has been impeccable. One of my favourite vegetarian restaurants in London

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

The Jewry

37 Jewry St, London EC3N 2ER, UK – 020 3858 0212

Went here a few Fridays ago, as work in the city and wanted somewhere new to go. It's a really nice place, decor is so different to the boring bars in the area. We danced into the early hours and had a really good night. Recommend this place for s good night out.

Nice pub but can get busy since the main bar area is tiny

Jamies Bar

10-18 London Bridge St, London SE1 9SG, UK – 020 7407 6962

Good beer and great atmosphere... Very handy for London bridge station too

Nice bar, not ludicrous prices considering where it is, service quite slow, but it was very busy.

The Ladybird Bar (Cocktail Bar & Club)

70 Upper St, London N1 0NY, UK – 020 7359 1710

I had my birthday here and privately rented the club. Was the best priced place around and open til 4am! They arranged everything for me and made it an amazing night! Great cocktails, great music, great vibes and great staff! I have been here since and would recommend it!

Love this place! Booked a table through Kyle there and he looked after us all night! Will definitely go again!!! 😜😁🤩🍸🍹
