Hutong Review

Hutong is a prestigious Chinese restaurant on the 33rdlevel of The Shard. It’s one of the three upscale restaurants at The Shard, with Aqua Shard and Oblix. We’ve dined at all three of the restaurants and written about Oblix. Hutong has been our favourite of the three (we even spent NYE 2017 at their bar)…

Duck and Waffle

Shiima and I had our first “date” at Duck and Waffle close to five years ago. Date being in quotes because I’d booked dinner at Duck & Waffle, but she thought it was a tad too highfalutin to be the first place we hung out… she wanted somewhere more casual, so we went for an…

Chiltern Firehouse – First Impressions Review

Chiltern Firehouse comes with an esteemed reputation, mostly because of its clientele and ostentatious aura, which includes difficulty to get a reservation. Shiima and I are cool with all those. Actually, we enjoy it because it makes for a more entertaining experience. But all that quickly becomes a detriment if the food isn’t up to…

Xu London – First Impressions Review

Our first experience of Taiwanese cuisine was last year at Bao Fitzrovia and we loved it (more me than Shiima though). We went to Bao Fitz again earlier this year and we enjoyed it even more. I appreciate that Bao is unique, but the enjoyment of the food sent me on a quest to try…

Kiru – First Impressions

I love sushi, but we haven’t been to a new Japanese restaurant in months because I have exhausted all the Japanese restaurants around us. All that’s left is West London, which is far! Lol. I’d come across quite a few Japanese restaurants in West London but there was always something missing (most of them just…

First Impressions – Isabel

Isabel is a fairly new restaurant in Mayfair that serves Mediterranean cuisine. Isabel is the sister restaurant to Casa Cruz in Notting Hill – we haven’t been to Casa Cruz just yet, but we plan to go soon. You probably haven’t heard of Isabel because they consider themselves to be super exclusive. Their website is…

Tamarind Kitchen – First Impressions

Tamarind Kitchen is an Indian restaurant in Soho. A few weeks ago, after dinner at The Duck and Rice, we came across Tamarind Kitchen on our way to Tottenham Court Road station. The restaurant looked really interesting from the outside so we stopped to look at the menu by the door. The menu peaked my interest,…

First Impressions – M Threadneedle Street

M Threadneedle street is a multi award-winning grill restaurant in the City. It’s a fairly large establishment which also houses a cocktail bar, a members’ den and private dining rooms. The restaurant is by Martin Williams – the M stands for Martin – who was previously at Gaucho steakhouse. The restaurant décor is luxuriously modern….

First Impressions – City Social

City social is a stylish modern British restaurant by London chef Jason Atherton on the 24th floor of Tower 42 in the city. It took some persuading to get me to the restaurant as I’m not a fan of British cuisines since it’s mainly has beef and fish – definitely not for me! But Amen…

First Impressions – Jamavar

Jamavar is an upmarket Indian restaurant in Mayfair that opened within the past year, but has already built a very good reputation. Shiima and I first came across Jamavar at Taste of London 2017, when I had their utterly delicious Malabar Chicken Wings. Then a couple weeks ago, Jamavar was featured on Celebrity Masterchef. The…
