London reviews

Banana Tree Soho, W1

Quality, authentic Indochinese cuisine

East Street Restaurant, W1

Can't decide between Thai and Vietnamese? Have both.

Le Mercury Deuxieme, N1

Affordable French cooking in the heart of Islington

La Muse Bistro, N1

La Muse Bistro promises much but lets me down every time

Pizza East (Shoreditch), E1

Quality ingredients and authentic, simple cooking

The Albion, N1

A village pub with a garden, moments from Upper Street

Flesh & Buns, Covent Garden Review

Japanese izakaya spot from the chef who brought us Bone Daddies

Como3 Cantina Chic, N1

A great fusion idea but sadly, poorly executed

Boyds Brasserie, WC2

Great value pre-theatre menu in a grand setting

Brewdog Camden, NW1

BrewDog leads the craft beer revolution in style

Smokehouse, N1

This gastropub smokes the competition (get it?)

OA ComTam, N7

Authentic Vietnamese on Holloway Road...? I didn't believe it either but it's true!

Spuntino, W1

Spuntino is trendy, intimate and provides our first Scoff celeb spot (and it's a good one... I think)

The Fish & Chip Shop, N1

Better than your local chippy, but is that enough?

Shanghai Blues, WC1

Disappointing in almost every way...

Zoe Restaurant, N1

Ranked '#32 of 12,026 restaurants in London' - questionable?

Opera Tavern, WC2

Probably the best tapas in London, with service to match

Asakusa, NW1

Breakfast at Tiffany's ... I'd rather have dinner at Asakusa!

John Salt, Islington Review

Rankin brings a BBQ influenced twist to the Sunday roast and I welcome it with open arms

Yauatcha, W1

Fancy dim sum. Fancy prices.

Koya, W1

I've never been a big fan of Udon... Koya's done nothing to change that

Goodman Mayfair, Review

Goodman makes some big claims, but I can't argue with them

Wahaca, W1

Marvellous mexican, aye carumba!

Busaba Eathai, EC1

Tasty thai food, a chain worth visiting!
