London’s restaurant scene is probably one of the most diverse I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Visiting London regularly is like returning to foodie heaven as often as I possibly can.
You are just surprised with brand new and exciting restaurants every time.

To start with, I would like to introduce one of my all time favourites to you:

You enter by going down a tiny narrow road and in the corner of the bend is a reasonably anonymous entrance. A well hidden gem! You go down some black stairs with lighting and enter the foyer where you are greeted and taken to your table, in the subtly lit dark restaurant Wooden lattice screens carved out of dark English oak invite discerning guests for a unique dining experience with contemporary cuisine from Chef Andrew Yeo.

The menu has a strong Chinese ethnic identity with an ethos of Cantonese cooking that will be informed by a progressive approach, underpinned by authenticity rather than traditionalism.

Hakkasan Hanway Place gained a Michelin star in 2003 and has retained it ever since.

This somewhat dark, “nightclub-style”, sometimes very noisy Chinese/pan-Asian style restaurant hasn’t really changed since since I first enjoyed a meal there ( which feels like a lifetime ago). It is still a go-to for quality dim sum. Believe me!

These pictures were actually taken in August of this year.
