Steakhouse | Soho, West End London

The set menu is really very good value for Money. The quality is very high, and the portions are sufficient. Its pricey with drinks, but with that quality of food I'm more than happy to pay for a meal at MASH. My favorite steak restaurant, by a very long way. More

Another pre-theatre meal at Mele & Pere, this time before going to the Harold Pinter Theatre, a 5-10 minute walk away. Food and service were to their usual high standard, and the three course pre-theatre menu continues to be unbelievably good value. Highly recommended. More

Chinese | Soho, West End London

The food is absolutely great! I always go here for dimsum! As I really appreciate their honesty in their quality of food. I ordered egg yolk bun, I have been waiting for around 30 mins, and at the end they said that the chef didn't want to sell it because the quality of the bun is not good that day, I'm sad but I'm grateful that they're being honest!! As a return, they gave us 2 free macaroons, which I should admit that they're so generous and has a really good service! Really recommended place for family day-out! More

Discover London

If dining in the U.K. still evokes lackluster fish and chips or sorry boiled vegetables, it’s time for a trip. Call it the renaissance of British cuisine—from revived and updated bangers and mash to regional authentic Chinese, London has rewritten its own culinary story and now proudly bears the qualities of a veritable food destination. With a population of nearly 8.8 million people and one of the most popular airports in the world, the city is a bastion of cultural and culinary diversity, from an old world Parsi café and forage-forward tasting menus, to rethought English breakfasts and markets of all types. We’ll cheers to that.
