Hakkasan Mayfair

Hakkasan Mayfair is a relatively new location (opened in 2010) of the Hakkasan family of restaurants globally, and yet has won Michelin stars in 2012 and in 2013.  Hakkasan (Mayfair) is perhaps very famous for its Peking Duck, New Zealand / Australian Lobster etc. which can burn a hole in your pocket.  This review is […]

The Gate Islington – All vegetarian restaurant in London

The Gate restaurant was highly recommended to me as the “best” vegetarian restaurant in London before I moved to London.  So, I had to check it out!  I loved the airy, casual “feel” of The Gate in Islington and the range of vegetarian options there.  Some dishes can be made vegan upon request, some are […]
