About the restaurant
Theo Randall at the InterContinental has been firmly established on the London dining scene since opening in 2006. Acclaimed Chef Theo Randall (former partner at the River Café) creates award-winning rustic Italian dishes with the very best seasonal ingredients that continue to attract rave reviews.

The restaurant is proudly informal and unpretentious, with back-to-basics menu highlights including handmade pasta and wood roasted meat and fish, which in Theo's words is, "A million miles away from the complicated fancy fare you would normally expect to eat in Park Lane".

Since its launch, Theo Randall at the InterContinental has won numerous awards including Best Italian Restaurant of The Year from the London Restaurant Awards, Best Italian/ Mediterranean over £50 in Harden’s 2013, and the highest ranked Italian on the Sunday Times Food List 2013.

About the restaurant
Hotpot is one of the most signature Chinese cuisines that has been enjoyed for centuries. It is a communal meal where a pot of simmering broth is placed in the centre of the table, and diners can choose from a wide range of ingredients, such as thinly sliced meats, seafood, vegetables, mushrooms and noodles to cook in their chosen flavour of the broth. After which, diners can savour the cooked food in customisable dipping sauces and seasonings.

At Haidilao Hotpot, we are committed to providing a unique and enjoyable dining experience that combines delicious food, a cosy and intimate ambience, and exceptional customer service.

About the restaurant
November 2021 saw the hotly anticipated reopening of Langan’s Brasserie. With acclaimed duo, Graziano Arricale and James Hitchen at the helm, their mission is to bring all of the elegance and eccentricity of the original Brasserie - opened in 1976 as a joint venture between actor Michael Caine and the legendary restaurateur Peter Langan - back to the forefront of London culture. Reimagined for a new generation each of the three floors will have its own distinct visual identity. Upon entering, guests are instantly be immersed in a sense of occasion, synonymous with the ambience associated with the roaring twenties; from the bar area with its wall of bottles that stretches up to the ceiling, guests can head beyond the piano and past the bustling dining room to The Raw Bar. Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, the menu features all of the classics one would expect.

With best wishes

The Team at Langan’s Brasserie

Bringing a dash of Danish-Japanese style to the Shoreditch High Street, neighbourhood’s already vibrant dining scene.

There’s lots to look forward to. An urban-cool new restaurant that mixes Danish Hygge with Japanese aesthetics, where you can dine and unwind. As well as our classic menu of fresh sushi, grilled yakitori sticks and meticulously mixed drinks.

Maybe my fault as I got more sticks than sushi this time. A lot of them were lacking flavour, just cooked meat. But the sushi was great as per

About the restaurant
Yashin Ocean House was founded by some of London's leading experts in Japanese cuisine. Hosting an elegant dining hall with Edwardian architecture, the ambience is perfect for dates with friends, family or couples as well as solo visits. Our menu is centred on satisfying Japanese tapas and our signature Omakase sushi, also offering some of the finest delicacies in the world such as our exclusive Hida wagyu. Enjoy your meal with a glass of sake, as we offer one of the widest ranges in London, and can suggest the perfect sake to enhance and complement your dish.

Our sushi concept is “without soy sauce – but if you want to”. Of course, we can serve as much soy sauce as the diner desires; however, what we want to emphasise is the taste of the fish. Therefore, each piece of sushi that we serve is brushed with the right amount of soy sauce and topped with an accompaniment that harmonises with the flavour of the fish.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Daroco, where Italian gastronomy meets Soho decadence on Manette Street.

Come enjoy homemade pastas such as ravioli filled with braised pheasant or tagliolini with mushroom butter & black truffle, or why not try what Grace Dent praised as "possibly the best pizzas in Soho" from our beautiful, blue butterfly pizza oven? Afterwards, our cocktail bar, the Wacky Wombay, opens downstairs from 5PM where you can enjoy creative, innovative drinks in a cozy, speakeasy-like setting.

We look forward to seeing you!
