As I'm from London, there are so many restaurants I've tried and that are all so good. I lived in South West London and worked not far from Soho so these ended up being my favourite areas to go out for lunch or dinner. Each location has a variety of amazing restaurants and many of them have been so successful that now there are even two, three or many more of them across London.
Trust me - You will love all of these restaurants!
