Lyle’s London Review

Lyle’s London is a British restaurant with an a la carte lunch menu and set suppers. Last weekend we went for lunch instead of dinner. We haven’t done lunch in a very long time and Amen found Lyle’s with a promising lunch menu as it was “Game week” which meant that I would have a…

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…

First Impressions – Tandoor Chop House

We love Indian cuisine and have been to 12 other restaurants. We still have plenty others to visit. I’ve always been a fan of Indian food, but it took a while to get Amen convinced as he doesn’t eat carbs and thought it was a carb overload cuisine. Finally, I managed to get him to…

Kricket Soho – First Impressions

Shiima and I love Indian cuisine, probably because it has quite a few elements similar to Kenyan/Arab cuisine (her) and Nigerian cuisine (me). So we are always excited about going to an Indian restaurant. What made Kricket even more exciting for me is that it serves tapas style small dishes and I love that because…
