And have you heard of Hakkasan? It is located in an abandoned alleyway with “shotty” lighting and droning chill-out music – it’s hard to believe that of all places this is the hiding place of one of London’s hippest restaurants.
Hakkasan features absolutely exquisite Chinese cuisine, an experience your taste buds will remember for a time to come – long after you’ve exited the temple doors and are once again out on the dilapidated rundown street, that’s for sure. TOP!

The restaurant interior has been conceived as a subtle, elegant portrait – contemporary and innovative, yet mindful of tradition. The dining room features floor-to-ceiling glass walls, giving diners a view of the kitchen and its unique pulley system. Modelled after a version used by the royal court, the pulley’s workings look like the intricate parts of an oversize watch and serve to rotate the spit on an open-fire.
The ivory-painted walls are decorated with custom-made porcelain wall sconces in the shape of antique jelly moulds. A wall in the bar area displays British recipes taken from sixteenth-century cookbooks – but, like a conjurer’s sleight of hand, these appear and disappear, depending on the light’s reflection. Such bespoke details match Heston’s refined, precise and playful approach to traditional British cuisine.
Although it is not located in London, but in Berkshire, we couldn’t finish our suggestion without mentioning the honorable The Fat Duck, one of the world’s most exciting and exclusive places to eat.
It has 17 years of existence, awarded with three Michelin stars, restaurant of the year, Best Restaurant in the World and Best Restaurant in the UK.
