Coal Office Review

Coal Office is a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant in King’s Cross from renowned Chef Assad Granit, who’s responsible for two of my favourite restaurants The Barbary and The Palomar. Coal Office is similar to both restaurants in its cuisine and quality of food (more on that to come) but the beauty and design of…

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…

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…

Smoking Goat Review

Smoking Goat is a Thai barbecue restaurant in Shoreditch. I’d known about Smoking Goat and it’s sister restaurant, Kiln, for a while and all I heard were good things, but for whatever reason Thai cuisine wasn’t a priority of ours. But then a friend of mine went for dinner and I saw her delicious pictures…

Gunpowder Tower Bridge Review

Gunpowder Tower Bridge is a tapas style Indian restaurant focused on home-style authentic cooking. We dined at Gunpowder Spitafields in June and loved it, so when we found out Gunpowder was opening a new restaurant in Tower Bridge we rushed over to the soft opening. Plus, it was 50% of food 😁. Gunpowder Tower Bridge…

Duddell’s London Review

Duddell’s is an authentic Cantonese restaurant in the historic St Thomas’s Church building right by Borough Market in London Bridge. Duddell’s started in Hong Kong and Duddell’s London is their first restaurant outside Hong Kong. We first became aware of Duddell’s London at Taste of London 2018 and it had both of my favourite dishes…

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 Modern Pantry Review – First Impressions

The Modern Pantry is an elegant restaurant in Clerkenwell with fuses everyday cooking with modern ingredients. It’s modern European cuisine from a renowned Kiwi chef, so it’s far from the norm. The Modern Pantry is another one of our Taste of London Festival revelations and after looking through their menu at the festival we were…

Gunpowder – First Impressions

Gunpowder is a cosy tapas-style Indian restaurant in Spitafields. I’d been hearing about Gunpowder for a while, but that still didn’t prepare me for how “cosy” the restaurant is, and also how truly special the food is. Cosy in the context of Gunpowder means a few things, the cooking seems homely, the restaurant is really…
