My brother-in-law recommended we eat here during our first visit to London. I have never had such amazing sushi in my life. The truffle toro melted in our mouths. Every bite was delicious. The ginger is real and phenomenal. I usually don't like to spend a lot on food but we wanted to end our trip with a memorable meal and it did not disappoint. The staff and service was excellent. They even made my son a bowl of seared salmon and rice since he can't eat raw fish. He said it was delicious! More

We were on a family vacation in London and went to Thali twice: on our first night, and on our last. Excellent variety of plates on the menu, and between five of us over two nights we sampled quite a few of them. All fantastic. Service was warm, friendly, welcoming. If and when we return to London, Thali will be on the must-do list. More

Chinese | Kensington, West London

A nice restaurant with a beautiful view. I ordered 5 dishes and the I would say the quality was average, the best one in my mind is the diced beef with pepper. But the others, I will give them an ‘acceptable’. The meal was definitely overpriced and if you are going on a date, or any special occasion, please ensure you pre-book the Beijing/Peking roasted duck in advance, otherwise it is not likely to be available and I shall say the roasted duck is perhaps the only reason why I went there. It is the most disappointing book I’ve ever made through OpenTable. More

Thai | Kensington, West London

One word: scrumptious! Traveled to Chiang Mai almost a decade ago and I have been searching ever since for the same authentic, flavorful Thai taste in every countries I have visited since. Can honestly say that my search is finally over :-) The tom yum goong tastes exactly the same as the one I had from a local chef in Chiang mai. Don’t even let me get started with the sticky rice and mango (yummy!!!) dessert portion could have been bigger though. Prices on the higher side: £ 90 for two (nonalcoholic drinks). Will be back for sure!!! :-) More

This small restaurant is a great find. Tucked behind the Olympia exhibition venue, it is a great place to go for something to eat after visiting Olympia where catering leaves a lot to be desired. The food is lovely, service efficient and friendly and wines are very nice too. Very reasonably priced too and we enjoyed the ambience. Highly recommended. More

Amazing mouthwatering burgers and sides! Don’t let the outside deter you; once you walk down the stairs to the main dining room it transports you to a different world. The Cherry Bakewell was a great alternative to dessert with it being super sweet (but not sickening sweet) and tart. The Chicken thighs reminded me of Chick-Fil-A but a thousand times better (They should make this into a bomb chicken sandwich)! The sides are definitely shareable. The fries are very rich and favorable and they give you ALOT! More

We had the tasting menu, accompanied by the wine selection. The quality of the food was excellent. Portion size as expected from fine dining. Decor and setting is very good, though we had the whole restaurant to ourselves. Mid week Egyptian maybe doesn't draw the crowd, but it should. The lamb was exquisite. Not a cheap meal, but great food and something slightly different. More

The staff accommodated us (without reservations) so graciously. We were seated within 15 minutes but we were expecting a 1 hour wait. Food was excellent. Highly recommended. More

My partner and I chose to have the set menu. The price of the set menu was around £24 for three courses. This is where the waiter tried the ‘hard sell’. Tried to get us to have the tasting menu instead, even saying that the portions of the set menu were small. Then trying to get us to order dessert when ordering the starter and main. We stuck to our plan and ordered the set menu - no dessert yet, we did also order a bottle of wine and a bottle of water. When the food arrived it was gorgeous, beautifully presented and generous in portion. The flavours were excellent and we did eventually also have a dessert. I would definitely recommend eating here.

Lovely food well presented in a nice dining area. King prawns with glass noodles and prawn green curry both very tasty. The dining area was a little quiet but that did not detract from the experience.The two for one cocktails were a a good draw but that they ran out of the making for a second round which was a little off-putting. Overall we would definitely visit again when in the area. More

Good service, good food. The only negative was that they don't just add 10% to the bill as a service charge, but it is not clear on the bill or explained to you, and they also ask you if you wish to tip them when you pay with a card. This is dishonest. It was only because I saw the small print at the end of the bill I didn't tip twice. What is the 10% service added for if not for good service?! More
