Peruvian | Soho, West End London

Actually I'd give 4.5 stars to the food. Certainly will come again, very nice experience. An interesting choice of ingridients add a twist to classic dishes, but sometimes it seems there's an experiment just for the sake of trying something different, and certain things better left untouched. Some of the dishes as a result turned out to be either blunt, or too messy: the presentation occasionally looks a bit of an overkill, and ingridients which were not supposed to be together mixed up and distorted the taste. Not crazily priced (for London) for the quality, bottom line: highly recommended More

Came here for Easter brunch with my three teenage children. The food was amazing. There were so many delicious choices. They were able to accommodate my son’s nut allergy with no problems. The service was excellent; beginning with the host as soon as we walked in. 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

The restaurant is always busy. The food reliably good. The menu perhaps not as varied and changing but I love the cuisine so perhaps I am happy that it doesn’t change very much as I keep coming back. The Fraud prints on the walls are fabulous. More

An exceptional experience. Food made into art. Unbelievable tasting explosion in your mouth with each dish.

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.
