Great place to have a business lunch in the area. You will get a variety of mains with at least three types of meats and fish, not often you can find such diversity in the menu. Sides are especially good and work as starters as well. Plenty of vegetarian options. Coconut Lavender mocktail was just wonderful, so refreshing! Also tried caramel cheesecake which was served with berry’s sorbet, neat and delicious. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very calm, and you can talk without extra effort hear and to be heard since the place is spacious and is a bit hidden to the side from the lobby area. To add, there’s a garden space too. More

Modern European | South Kensington, South West London

Had never been there before and booked our reservation online a few days previously. The waitress who greeted us was friendly and efficient without being overbearing or pushy. We ordered drinks and after a few minutes ordered our food. I was expecting a wait of around 15-20 minutes, but the food arrived within 5-6 minutes, which was a pleasant surprise. The food itself was excellent and a decent portion which made a nice change from the meagre portions I have sometimes experienced in other establishments. Price wise, it was perhaps a bit more expensive than I am used to in rural Shropshire, but probably standard for a major city. I would definitely recommend MK Bar and Grill to anyone visiting the area and I'm sure that they would enjoy it as much as I did. More

Mediterranean | South Kensington, South West London

Close to the Gloucester station, this little gem offers a lovely Lebanese menu with traditional and special options. They have a nice, reasonable wine list. The food is prepared with care and very nicely presented, without being pretentious. Try the sea bass, it was literally the best I have had, and I eat out several times a week, so that is saying something. We had two kids with us, and while I wouldn't call this a kid friendly restaurant, the staff were gracious and we found several menu items to appeal to their young palates (chicken wings, chicken skewers, mixed grill and chips). The rice pudding desert was Devine. Can easily serve as a weekly go to restaurant without disappointment. More
