REVIEW: Chakra, Holland Street, Kensington, London

•••
Chakra, Chakra, Chakra - why have I not discovered you earlier. Admittedly it's a strange name for a restaurant, naming itself after the seven colours of spiritual awakening of health and well-being - but once you visit this Kensington institution you'll realise just why. One sunny early evening we took a seat on the terrace in this restaurants shiny[...]

REVIEW: Mustard Restaurant, Shepherds Bush Road, Brook Green, London

•••
You know, some places just have it all - well almost anyway. One of those "have-it-all" venues is a cosy brasserie in Brook Green, named Mustard. And when I say "almost" I'm simply referring to its location. I'm not going to sugar coat it, but it's not in the most glamorous of locations on a slightly busy main road. But step inside and it's an oasis of pure [...]

REVIEW: Sampling the BBQ menu at Senor Ceviche in Kingly Court

No one is talking about it but surely at the rate of openings right now, every single area in London is soon to be selling nothing but food and we'll all be the size of houses. One of Soho's newest additions, tak[...]

REVIEW: The Cavendish, New Cavendish Street, Marylebone, London

•••
One of the most hardest things these days for a restaurant is not being that new restaurant on the block, word spreads quickly - but it's change. New décor, new staff or a new chef - it's hard work getting that word on the street, especially as so many reviews and articles about you in your old form are already spread across the internet. The Cav[...]

REVIEW: L'Italiano, Park Plaza County Hall, Addington Street, London

•••
You know what,  I do love hotel dining. The service is generally better than that of a standalone restaurant, people are mostly hospitality trained so know what they're talking about and you get the added bonus of hotel amenities. A bar, more than one restaurant and a room if things get a little out of hand with that glass of Chardonnay. Inside the resta[...]
