The Island

Blimey - this place has changed a bit. Used to be a right grubby old pub (the buccaner) but has spruced itself up no end. Went for a family dinner here the other night and have to say I was very impressed. Everyone enjoyed their food immensely, the service was excellent (both asthetically and practically) and the atmosphere was splendid.

Vijay Indian Restaurant

My family have been coming here for the last 30 years. Best indian in London without a doubt. The masala dosai's are totally divine, the service is super friendly and the prices are more than reasonable. An institution.

Kings Arms

The burgers here are second to none. Nice pub but a tad on the pricey side.

The Brewers Inn

Cor - the other chap must have come in on a bad day. Every time I've eaten here the food has been top notch. The 3 course sunday dinner for a tenner is an absolute bargain and they have some of the best frites I've had in a pub. Friendly service and the choice of sitting at the front bar with the TV or chilling out at the back in a more traditional restaurant setting. Good pub quiz on sundays too, though you get some right clever sods in there so don't expect to win.

E Capital

Something a little different from the near-identical restaurants on the rest of the street. They do a proper 3 course peking duck and the glazed prawns are amazing. Always had top service there - they are very patient with my 4 year old niece running amok.

Fitou's Thai Restaurant

This place is amazing. The best value thai food in london and probably the best tasting as well. Have never had a bad dish here - and I try a new one every time we go! Couldn't come more highly recommended. In fact - we have just ordered some take out for lunch.

OXO Tower Brasserie

Had a great dinner here with my gf and her mum. The food was very good but what really makes this place is of course the location. Stunning views of sunset over london and 3 delicious courses. Reasonable value considering we had 2 bottles of wine. Was booted out after 2 hours but were pre-warned about this to be fair.

Chez Kristof

Had a lovely evening there for my girlfriend's birthday. The food was amazing - I had Prawns to start and pork for main, my gf had mussels and the steak. All were perfect. The atmosphere was great, nicely full but not packed. Service was good - several different waiters attended to us through-out. All in all Chez K comes highly recomended
