  1. Christopher’s Covent Garden 

Located in the heart of Covent Garden, Christopher’s is a must go if you are ever in the area. The  stunning interiors, great service and mouth-watering food have made this American restaurant one of my favourites. With Christopher’s you get the ultimate fine dining experience without having to break the bank. 

Price – £25 and over 

What I got – Milk Brioche French Toast, Chocolate Beignets and a Martini

Service – 8/10

Food – 9/10

Aesthetics – 8/10 

2. The Ivy Chelsea Garden

Ivy place is a bloggers heaven. Tucked away in the beautiful Chelsea; it is home to one of the most beautiful outdoor seating areas I’ve seen in London. To get the best experience, book a visit during the summer when you can enjoy the pleasant weather in the outdoor garden. Although it was a pretty restaurant, the food was predominantly bland and did not impress me. Service was also subpar. 

Price – £25 to £45 

What I got – Chicken Milanese

Service – 4/10 

Food – 4/10 

Aesthetics – 8/10 

3. Radio Rooftop

Elegant and sophisticated with stunning views of the city. It tends to get quite busy so I advise you book ahead to avoid disappointments; especially if you want to get the good seats. Although slightly overpriced, the food was very tasty. Its an over 21 venue, so don’t forget to bring your ID!

Price – £30 to £45 

What I got – Grain Fed Chicken Breast

Service – 7/10 

Food – 9/10 

Aesthetics – 8/10 

4. Chi Kitchen 

Hidden in the busy Debenhams, if you don’t look for this Pan-asian restaurant, you might not find it. The food portions are a bit small for the price, but it was delicious nonetheless. Its a great place to unwind after a busy day of shopping on oxford street.

Price – £25 & under 

What I got – Szechuan with Battered Chicken and a side of Jasmine Rice

Service – 8/10 

Food – 9/10 

Aesthetics – 6/10

5.  Oblix at The Shard 

Oblix is located in the popular Shard, high in the sky with striking views of London. Service was great, the food was mediocre which was highly disappointing considering the lengthy waiting time. But, what they lacked in culinary skills, they made up for in views. The best seats are by the window, so always book ahead.

Price – £50 and over 

What I got – warm artisan bread & butter, sea bass, courgette, tomato & basil with a side of hand cut chips

Service – 7/10 

Food – 6/10 

Aesthetics – 9/10

As a foodie who has lived in London for the last six years, I may know a little about food in London.

When I’m not working, schooling or researching, I’m most likely stuffing my face in meals or looking for the next great meal spot in London.
