Indian food is something that I hold quite close to my heart. Every time I scroll through Bookatable, there’s always one restaurant that stands out to me as somewhere that should be high up on my list of restaurants to go to. That exact restaurant was The Cinnamon Club.
With an etching of a single gold leaf as it’s branding, it upheld the majestic aurora about it through being situated in a historic Grade II listed building, which used to be the Westminster Library. I have always thought of The Cinammon Club as somewhere to visit to have a fine dining experience through eating Indian dishes, and it was an experience I would much rather forget to be honest.
Now, I’m not gong to sit here and bash The Cinnamon Club because I’ll admit, the food is exquisite. It’s really made to test your taste-buds as each dish is full of flavours that compliment and contrast each other in a way no other chef can really do. Well presented and innovative dishes laid out with such care, the flaws of The Cinnamon Club really don’t do the chef any justice here. It’s a shame that these flaws really do let down a restaurant that I could easily have seen as one of my new favourites. View Post
Special occasions are certainly times that call for a highly recommended restaurant booking, and Hawksmoor Seven Dials proved to be just that. Ankit and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary by heading to Hawksmoor Seven Dials in Covent Garden, somewhere where we have both wanted to go for a long time now, for an early dinner. I’ve previously only been to Hawksmoor Seven Dials once, so I kind of knew my way around the menu, the cuts and had my own personal recommendations as to what to order.
You may ask why Hawksmoor, in particular? Anyone who knows a thing or two about good steak know that the team at Hawksmoor really know their stuff when it comes to prime cuts. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, setting the mood with such sophistication for any special occasion. The food is cooked to each individual taste, and it’s likely that you won’t find anything on the menu that doesn’t entice you.
So when someone asks me why Hawksmoor? My response is, why not?! View Post
Last Sunday Ankit and I took a trip to Hakkasan, a restaurant that I have been wanting to go to for AGES now. Every time I heard someone else going to this restaurant, it made me want to go there more and more. If you haven’t heard of Hakkasan, it’s a spectacular Michelin starred restaurant boasting a contemporary and upscale vibe to a Chinese restaurant. Part of the Hakkasan Group, you will find restaurants located worldwide – namely Miami, Dubai, Las Vega, and London’s West End. Awarded one of the top 50 restaurants that must be visited, Hakkasan is a restaurant that should be top of your list of places to dine at. View Post
