London Restaurants London Now...

In the London Now London Restaurant Guide we want to cover all types of London restaurants from the simple basic London restaurant to the London restaurant's favoured by the food loving gourmet restaurants. We are very interested in hearing from you if you have a suggestion as to a restaurant that should be featured in this guide. It could be a restaurant that features exquisite food or a London restaurant which is inexpensive but delivers good quality food. The first restaurant we feature here never fails to amaze me as I can never believe the quality and the quantity of food that they serve for such reasonable prices. It is the Chelsea Kitchen London on the Kings Road in the heart of Chelsea. I introduced this bargain restaurant to my daughter earlier this year when she was over from America on a study course for her university.

She shared a room with another American girl and after I had taken her and she had enjoyed the good food and the amazing value they made it a regular for themselves. Both of the girls being students were on limited budgets and my daughters friend said she was so broke that this was the only restaurant she had found in London that she could afford to eat in. The Chelsea Kitchen offers good wholesome food in a pleasant atmosphere in a prime location on one of the trendiest streets in London. Main courses are £3 to about £5.50 which is about the same price as eating in a fast food restaurant such as McDonalds. Deserts are a great treat as you can get apple crumble and custard for example for only £1.50. The Chelsea Kitchen is located on the same side of the Kings Road as the Peter Jones Department store and is only a couple hundred yards if you walk up the Kings Road from Sloane Square tube station.

In the area of London called Belgravia, you will find Jenny Lo's Teahouse. Long before noodle bars hit the big time, Jenny Lo's was offering stripped-down Chinese fare at communal tables. The modern interior bustles on weekdays, but the delicious Cha Clao (pork noodle soup £5.50) and the broad selection of Asian noodles from Vietnamese to Beijing Style (£5.50-£7.50) make it well worth the wait. Tea's, blended in-house, are served in attractive hand-turned stoneware.

Chelsea Kitchen, 98 King's Road, London Tel: 020 7589 1330 Open daily 7a.m. to midnight, breakfast served till 11.30a.m. main dishes approx. £4, wine £1.50 per glass. Accepts MC, V

We now list a restaurant from the other end of the spectrum-one reckoned by some as the best restaurant in London - The Ivy, 1-5 West Street Tel: 020 7838 4751. Open daily noon-3.p.m and 5.30p.m.- midnight AmEx/MC/V The writer has not had the pleasure of eating in this famous, star-studded restaurant where you will rub shoulders with the rich and famous and live the good life. As soon as I review this restaurant I will give you full details but for the time being you will just have to be content with the address and their telephone number.

Beach Blanket Babylon London

Beach Blanket Babylon
45 Ledbury Road
London W11 2AA
020-7229-2907
Nearest tube: Nottinghill Gate

Food Type: Mediterranean
Notes: 2 course set menu is available Monday – Friday 12noon-5pm
Opening Hours:
Mon-Wed 12:00-00:00
Sat-Sun 10:30-00:00

Beach Blanket Babylon is a magical gothic-inspired bar and restaurant nestled in an old Georgian House in the heart of Nottinghill. A playground for Nottinghill’s rich and beautiful, well-heeled socialites and fashionistas unwind in the sumptuous upstairs bar with potent, well-prepared cocktails poured by attentive staff members who also appear to have just stepped off the catwalk.
While casually posing, one can savour the decadent décor of columns, marble busts, urns and topiary. Chandeliers and strategically-placed candles cast light upon a plethora of 17th Century cabinets dripping with vintage costume jewellery crafted by designers such as Christian Dior and Chanel.  These luxurious items are available for purchase and range from £70-£1500.
Large, comfy armchairs are perfect to sink into as you forget your cares and indulge in stimulating conversation with your entourage.  If the intoxicating environment has left you wanting some fresh air, an outside patio area with a handful of small iron tables is particularly welcoming as it is more private and affords the perfect opportunity for further people-watching. 
The restaurant comprises several rooms interconnected by walkways, tunnels, bridges and staircases with names such as The Chapel, Crypt and Scullery Gallery aptly describing each space.
Going deeper into the depths of the restaurant, via a narrow staircase, one can find The Crypt, a jewel of a restaurant filled with several nooks and crannies that are ideal for an intimate meal. The central focus of this subterranean oasis is a beautiful open fire place, which casts a warm glow upon the stone walls creating an inviting old-world atmosphere.
BBB successfully blends historic dining with modern sophistication and is a sure to impress the most discerning of Londoners.  It is advised to dress smart and bring your bank card as the cocktails are expensive (£11) but justified given the ethereal experience that is guaranteed.-2 October 2006

 

Thai Square Restaurant London

Thai Square is a contemporary Thai restaurant located in the award-winning Putney Bridge Building. Take in the breathtaking view of the while sipping a Woo Woo on their relaxing full-length balcony.
The Putney Building has been received various design awards for its distinctly nautical construction. One of the most unique buildings in London, it resembles a ship with metal beams, long glass windows, and rope-threaded timber panels.
Special care has been taken to ensure that it preserves an authentic Thai ambiance. Eight statues of Buddha are dispersed throughout the restaurant and as tradition dictates, they are fed and watered daily.
Thai Square is divided into three distinct areas. The main restaurant features Thai cuisine prepared by Prawat Ngam-Arom, a distinguished Thai chef from Bangkok. The menu offers nearly 100 items ranging from a multitude of starters, soups, noodle dishes, Thai salads, curries, rice dishes and Thai specialities.
After dinner, saunter over to the bar to sample one of their many sinful cocktails or to indulge in a glass of champagne. Meander towards the back of the restaurant to the Cigar Lounge which features DJs spinning house music and funky tunes on the weekends. This sultry lounge is stunning in its modern simplicity coupled with rich jewel-toned velvet couches and elaborate etched glass walls. If you don’t want to share the opulence with the masses, reserve this intimate space for a private party with your trendiest entourage.
On the weekends, arrive early to secure your space on the throbbing dance floor and be prepared to wait longer than usual for a cocktail as this is one of the hottest spots in town. This is undoubtedly a fantastic venue if you are seeking somewhere classy yet relaxed enough to lose your inhibitions and shake your stuff on the dance floor.

La Porte de Indes London

La Porte de Indes
“Indian Cuisine with a difference”
32 Bryanston Street, London W1H 7EG
Nearest Tube: Marble Arch
TEL: +44 20 7224 0055
FAX: +44 20 7224 1144
E-mail: london.reservation@laportedesindes.com

The exterior of the Porte Des Indes is very unassuming, which makes the entrance into this marvellous gem all the more breathtaking. Once inside, the massive Edwardian ballroom with domed ceilings and dining facilities on two large floors is revealed.
The remarkable interior of Indian stone balustrades and cascading waterfalls instantly transports one to India. Palm trees and Mogul drawings are a lovely sight to cast your eyes upon as you peruse the extensive French-influenced Indian menu.  Although the prices are slightly higher than average, it is well worth it as their food is consistently to the highest of standards.
I sampled their Mango Chilli Mohito, one of their many innovative cocktails. This concoction consists of Angostura Rum, Sweet Basil Leaves, Alphonso Mango. Much to my delight, my drink arrived in a coconut resting on a banana leaf coaster!  This drink was very sweet, yet not sickly and was a wonderful complement to the Poulet Rouge. This house specialty consists of Shredded chicken marinated in yoghurt and red spices, grilled and served in a creamy sauce. For accompaniments, I ordered Riz au Coco, rice scented with fragrant curry leaves and coconut, as well as a Laccha Paratha, Rich flaky bread enriched with butter. The portions looked rather small when they arrived, but by the time I had finished, I was stuffed.  All of the items I had ordered were well-presented and flavourful but not overpowering.
The service here was second-to-none.  Our food arrived promptly, and our server was attentive and non-obtrusive.
After your meal, stroll over to the Jungle Bar for yet another cocktail. All time classics such as Caipirinha, Cosmopolitan, Margaritas, Fresh Fruit
Daiquiris and Champagne Cocktails and more exotic concoctions can all be found here.

The Jungle Bar is designed as a hunters perch with beautiful paintings of animals on the wall. Decorated with hurricane lamps, rattan wall coverings, leaf-motif cane furniture, palms trees and tiger skin rugs, this area is casually opulent.  Guests are encouraged to throw peanut shells on the floor to mimic the rich and famous in the Long Bar of the Raffles of Singapore whose patrons frivolously threw down "peanut shells" as a good humoured slightly rebellious act of appreciation which they could not get away with at home.

I was sad to leave this hidden oasis, but my spirits were lifted again when the doorman presented me with a single-stemmed orchid upon my departure.  This venue is ideal for intimate dinners and corporate entertainment alike.- 2 October 2006

Winner of several "best burger" awards, Gourmet Burger Kitchen is an upmarket restaurant chain devoted to top quality burgers boasting a multitude of exotic toppings. Created by two New Zealanders, GBK now has six outlets in London and is set to expand further.

Fresh ingredients delivered each morning ensure that the customer will experience the Rolls Royce of burgers. There are a plethora of burger options to be had: chicken, lamb, chorizo, venison and an aubergine and goats cheese burger.  Multiply this by the toppings: avocado, pesto, sweet potato, aubergine, goat’s cheese, bacon, cheddar, tomatoes, peppers, pineapple, onion, salad, Portabello mushrooms, and a fried egg and the possibilities are endless!

Their signature ‘Kiwiburger’, one of their most outrageous concoctions (Aberdeen Angus beef, beetroot, egg, pineapple, cheese, salad and relish), stands an amazing 6” from the plate!  Eating this beast of a burger proves to be quite a challenge, so it is probably not the best place to go while on a date as you are likely to have sauces and toppings everywhere! 

As a side, try their delicious homemade chips which can be served with Garlic Mayo, Blue Cheese, Satay, Chilli, Barbecue or Sour Cream on the side. Delicious side salads and dinner salads are also available for vegetarians. Wash down your meal with an ice-cold beer, soda, or one of their infamous Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Banana, or Lime milkshakes.

 The clean, stylish décor, prompt service and non-smoking environment provide the perfect backdrop for casual eating.- 2 October 2006
