You have to check out BAO and Dishoom Carnaby while you are here. The wait is always shorter at lunch time!

Oh gosh where do I start. For a culinary experience I love Dinner by Heston and The Ledbury, the latter is probably one of the best meals I've had in my life; Borough Market for my craving for Scotch eggs; Yautcha in Soho for dim sum (Chinatown is also good but Yautcha is a nicer setting); Royal China on Baker St for authentic Chinese dim sum, but considered yourself warned, queue starts even before their doors open on Sundays; Zuma for Japanese and people (reads celebrity) watch; Barrafina for Tapas; Melt Room for cheese toast, or we call it grille cheese (and just £5!)

I tend to stop by a lot of the same places when I go.  When I'm looking for a nice dinner, I go to either Rules in Covent Garden, the oldest restaurant in London or Brasserie Zédel which is a busy French brasserie in Piccadilly Circus.  If I'm wanting fish and chips, I'll stop either at Laughing Halibut or Poppies Fish and Chips, Camden.  There are a few chains I eat at, the quality tends to be good across the board so if you find a location near where you are ,you'll be reasonably assured of a good meal, Tas Restaurant, wagamama leicester square, Masala Zone Covent Garden.  For a full English breakfast, I love Regency Cafe and Café In The Crypt is pretty unique.  Local friends have taken me to Tayyabs in Whitechapel and Punjab in Covent Garden/Soho and both are very good.

As you can imagine in a city with millions and millions of people, there are a lot of good restaurants.  Most tourists will pick places near to where they are staying/visiting and even if the areas are touristy, there are still good choices.

There is almost to many to choose from and it really does depend on what type of food you like and how much money your willing to spend, because it can get absurd. I absolutely love Casereccio, really simple, fresh and delicious Mediterranean cuisine. And really friendly staff.

I just tried Dishoom and am in love! If you like Indian and a good interior space you have to go. It's packed every night so they'll tell you it's a two hour wait for a table but you'll get in under an hour and be able to enjoy a great cocktail at the bar while your table opens up. So worth it! I also love J Restaurant (Italian) and Manna (Vegetarian) both in Primrose Hill. Pizza East in Notting Hill. Cay Tre  for great Vietnamese.

If you are down for Pizza, check out Homeslice in Covent Garden. They dont take bookings but you can leave your phone number with them and go for a drink at the pub and head over when they call. The pizzas are amazing and HUGE! They are only £20 for a 20", which is perfect for 2/3 people

If you fancy Indian food try Gymkhana  at Mayfair (closest stop is Green Park Tube Station). It is one of the amazing Indian restaurants in the world; trust me on that. Its Michelin star so a bit pricy.
