We have sorted you with the top 10 places to eat in London, however, not all the places on our list may be easily accessible from where you may be put up. Here’s our guide to finding the best grub in London, based on the popular neighbourhoods around the city so that you can have a wonderful culinary experience irrespective of where you are – be it East, West, North, South or Central. 

Here’s a compilation of our favorite restaurants around neighbourhoods in Central London:

1. Soho

In Soho you will be spoilt for choice by an eclectic mix of dining options. For meat lovers we suggest Flat Iron, located on Beak Street. Order their House Steak accompanied by some fries and beer, and you’re all set. Cost for two is £35 on an average.

If you’re looking for something more pocket friendly with vegetarian options – check out the tiny cozy eatery on Poland Street – The Kati Roll Company.

2. Marylebone

Pachamama on Thayer Street is the place you want to check out when in Marylebone neighbourhood. The place serves Peruvian cuisine, and is a local favourite. Make sure you end your meal by ordering their popular Chocolate fondant. 

You can also check out Trishna on Blandford Street for some Michelin star fine dining. This Indian restaurant is perfect for vegetarians.

3. Fitzrovia

Fitzrovia is your happening neighbourhood in Central London dotted with galleries, restaurants, pubs and near London’s West End – so it’s highly unlikely that you’ll run out of places to eat at. However, if you must choose one then better make that choice to be Hakkasan – the home of modern Cantonese cuisine paired with world class mixology. Located at Hanway Place, the kitchen is run by Chef Tong Chee Hwee, who happens to be the only Chinese chef to have been awarded the London Chef of the Year. £120 is the average price for a meal for two.

For something veggie friendly, we recommend Honey & Co. on Warren Street. 

4. Covent Garden

No matter which cuisine you’re after, Covent Garden will have an option for you. For this neighbourhood though, we recommend you go for everyone’s favourite pizza and make a stop at Homeslice in Neal’s Yard. Homeslice started off as a hand built mobile wood fired oven – serving at popular markets and festivals. They gained so much attention and love for their pizza, that in 2013 they finally opened up a permanent place at Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden. Besides the classic recipes, they also offer some unique signature creations. So make a visit to know what all the hype is about. 

5. Bloomsbury

Get your Japanese fix in Bloomsbury at Hare & Tortoise on Brunswick Square. This cozy diner is the perfect alternative to the more expensive Japanese joints around the city as a meal for two won’t really create a massive dent on your pocket. Order their Penang Prawn Mee, their spicy prawn broth noodle that is available exclusively at their Bloomsbury branch or go for their popular Ramen bowls such as the Curry Laska. You’ll also find a good variety of vegetarian options on their menu.

6. Mayfair

Hit up Sketch Gallery on Conduit Street in Mayfair for some exquisite British and Contemporary flavours served in a classy fine dine setting. Although an expensive affair; the interiors, the ambience, the service and the food will all make the experience worth every penny. Their perfectly pink dining room is sure to make its way to your instagram!

7. Holborn

On 71 High Holborn, a short walk from Holborn and Chancery Lane Stations, you’ll find Kimchee – serving authentic Korean fare. While they do take walk-in customers, it’s usually advised to make prior reservations as the place tends to get busy during evenings. Kimchee offers quality food in a stylish setting, and the open plan kitchen allows you to take a peek at the chefs applying their masterful skills in preparation of your order.

For some place more vegetarian friendly you can also check out Vanilla Black at Tooks Court.
