Talli Joe Review

Talli Joe is an Indian restaurant in Covent Garden that claims to be best Indian restaurant in London. We love Indian food so we were tremendously excited to eat at Talli Joe. You can’t reserve a table of 2, so we rushed over soon as Shiima was done at work. Talli Joe has a very…

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 –…

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…

Bombay Bustle Review

Bombay Bustle is an authentic Indian restaurant on Maddox Street in Mayfair specialising in Mumbai’s diverse home style cooking. We first came across Bombay Bustle while walking to Black Roe and were really intrigued by the menu. Then again at Taste 2018 and our interest was peaked. We went for dinner on a Monday and…

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…

Park Chinois Review – First Impressions

Park Chinois is a Chinese restaurant in the heart of Mayfair. Shiima and I had walked past its red doors several times on our way to other Mayfair restaurants but we had no idea it was even a restaurant – seemed more like a private members club. We’d also been hearing a ton about Park…

Brigadiers – First Impressions

Last Saturday on Instagram I came a scrumptious picture of sliders from a restaurant called Brigadiers. I’d never heard of Brigadiers, so I quickly clicked through to the restaurant and I was completely taken by the food. I was even more enamoured by the pictures/videos geotagged to the location. After a bit more sleuthing I…

Belgo – First Impressions

On Thursday we watched Belgium beat England and realised we’d never tried Belgian Cuisine. So we thought to give it a try ASAP! After some research, Belgo seemed like the best spot for a First Impression. Belgo is a Belgian restaurant that opened in London before Shiima was born, and now has several restaurants across…

Yosma – First Impressions Review

Yosma is an upmarket Turkish restaurant on Baker Street in Marylebone with a really good reputation for traditional Turkish cuisine, especially from their mangal – open charcoal grill.

First Impressions – A Wong

We went to A Wong for our Eid Dinner on Friday, and we were really late for our reservation but luckily they were still able to accommodate. I know I wouldn’t hear the last of it from Amen if they didn’t. A Wong is a Chinese restaurant in Pimlico by Andrew Wong. Amen had this…

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…
