Yauatcha   Upscale dim sum at its best, Yauatcha is a meditation on balance, harmony and restraint. This Soho restaurant is pure elegance, with food as artfully composed as fine calligraphy. From the moment you step inside, you get the feeling that you are participating in something special, and that each mouthful has been carefully created. Naturally, a meal at… Read more →



Opium   Opium is a notorious soporific, and this dim sum and cocktail lounge which bears its name certainly has its own dreamy quality. Behind a Jade coloured door on Gerrard Street is Opium. This parlour gracefully sprawls two storeys and each room bears its own charm and remnants of the Chinatown gambling venue it used to be. The decor… Read more →


La Bodega Negra

La Bodega Negra   OK, forget everything you know about Mexican restaurants. Soho’s La Bodega Negra is dark, a little dingy and very naughty. The sign outside says “sex shop”, which is your first clue that your dining companions had better not be your family members. The latest in themed London eateries, La Bodega is concept heavy but offers solid… Read more →


Jackson + Rye

Jackson & Rye   Jackson and Rye is a charming and playful take on old school US diner aesthetic from days gone by.

Inspired by modernised Taiwanese bubble tea culture and all its fresh, healthful flavours, Chatime opened its… Read more →


The Life Goddess

The Life Goddess   A welcome counterfoil to some of London’s more sterile and overly-modern eateries, The Life Goddess is very seriously a breath of fresh air. The atmosphere inside is buzzing with life and you’ll enjoy the celebratory attitude and almost religious zest for the fine arts of eating drinking and being merry. The restaurant concept is sustained by… Read more →
