Kym’s Review

Kym’s is a Chinese restaurant in the City from Andrew Wong, who brought us the Michelin starred A Wong in Pimlico.

So Kym’s shot…

Sushi Samba – Covent Garden

Sushi Samba (Liverpool Street) is one of our favourites and we were super excited to see it had opened one in Covent Garden. Amen had booked it for a few weeks ago but we had to keep rescheduling because of my changing schedule. Sushi Samba works perfectly for us, Amen loves the sushi and I…

Clos Maggiore Review

Clos Maggiore is a contemporary French restaurant in Covent Garden that was voted the most romantic restaurant in the world in 2016 and the most romantic restaurant in London many times. I imagine your first question is, “really? is it?” I’ll get to that 😊. Shiima found Clos Maggiore and she was really excited to…

Indian Accent London Review

Indian Accent is an elegant Indian restaurant in Mayfair with a creative and contemporary approach to Indian cuisine. Shiima and I always try to visit at least one new Indian restaurant a month because we love Indian cuisine and there is a ton on our list we’re yet to visit. Indian Accent was at the top…

Nest Restaurant Review

Nest is a cosy restaurant in Hackney that serves British cuisine. I’d read a lot about Nest, but what intrigued me the most about the restaurant is what scared Shiima the most. At Nest it’s about sustainability; they only use one meat in the kitchen at a time, which is impressive. Plus, it’s predominantly a…

Fucina Review

Fucina, an Italian restaurant off Baker Street – more precisely Chiltern Street. We were already stunned at how beautiful the restaurant was from the large wooden door outside, which only continued once we were inside. The restaurant is extremely beautiful, highly styled and huge. Fucina won the best UK restaurant & bar design award –…

Flesh & Buns Fitzrovia Review

Flesh & Buns is a indulgent Japanese restaurant focused on meat & seafood (flesh) and steamed fluffy bao buns. We absolutely love baos, but we love flesh & buns even more. We are regulars at Flesh & Buns Covent Garden, and it’s one of our favourite London restaurants, so we were so excited to try…

Frenchie Covent Garden Review

Frenchie is an elegant French restaurant in Covent Garden that’s classed as a “modern Brasserie”. Inexplicably, Shiima and I had never tried French cuisine, so were very excited about Frenchie Covent Garden, especially because the menu has a lot of intriguing dishes and the Frenchie restaurant group comes with much renown. Frenchie Covent Garden is…

Suvlaki Soho Review – First Impressions

Suvlaki is an authentic Greek restaurant that specialises in Greek street food. A couple of weeks ago, a Greek friend of my dad recommended Suvlaki to me because of its authenticity and also because he knew how much I love tapas style restaurants. Suvlaki has two restaurants – in Shoreditch and Soho. We chose Soho…

The Barbary Review – First Impressions

I’ve been aware of The Barbary, a very highly acclaimed Michelin starred restaurant in Covent Garden serving cuisine from the Barbary Coast (Northern Africa) to Israel, since dining solo at The Palomar, their sister restaurant. I was really keen on going to The Barbary, but I didn’t think the menu had much on it for…
