    SHAKA ZULU: MINIATURE SOUTH AFRICAN - LONDON

    by DAO Written Oct 3, 2012


    MINIATURE?
    Yep, even the French would be shocked at the small portions served here. My starter was literally hidden by the lettuce. Just look at the first photo. It's like they are running a Witness Relocation Program for meat. The real ‘Shaka’ is the amazing prices they charge for such little food. I ate here on a 50% off food deal with the website Toptable. Even at 50%, a starter and 2 additional side orders – I left hungry. Yes, I went to Macdonald’s down the road before going to my hotel. The absolute shame here, other than sky high drink prices, is that the taste of the food is superb. Yes, the dishes are absolutely excellent in terms of taste, quality and presentation. However, I can here to eat South African food not appreciate some ones miniature art work.

    I love South African food. One of the reasons is that you do get good sized portions in South Africa. Shaka Zulu disappoints completely on this point.

    If you like nice décors, Shaka Zulu is awesome. The restaurant is another hallmark of Bebo Kobo. He also founded the awesome Gilgamesh Restaurant upstairs from Shaka Zulu. These 2 restaurants have the best looking interiors and bathrooms of any restaurants in London. Both are worth a look, especially Gilgamesh during the day.

    DAO’s recommendation? Go have an expensive drink (singular) at Shaka Zulu then go elsewhere if you actually want to eat a meal. The multiple bar areas in Shaka Zulu blend into the massive open plan restaurant and you can take some great pictures down here.

    Favorite Dish:
    Carpaccio of Ostrich (very small), Springbok Filet (tiny), Zulu Cabbage, Msamba (sautéed spinach) and a very tasty Windhoek Beer (from Namibia).

    CEENA: SEOUL BROTHER - LONDON

    by DAO Written Oct 2, 2012


    The reason I called my tip ‘Seoul Brother’ is because the owner, Mr. K. Hun Lee, treated me like a long-lost brother. In fact, I accidentally booked in on the wrong day and he not only welcomed me, he also honoured the meal deal I had booked. He also spent time explaining different Korean dishes, cooking, how they make spices in the restaurant and how he got started. I really enjoyed talking to him.

    I am keeping this tip short for now.

    In the meantime, try and book this intimate and friendly restaurant on the Toptable Website. I did and had a fantastic meal.

    If you have never tried Korean, I had not, I recommend you start here!

    Many different restaurants.: Rose Street

    by IreneMcKay Written Aug 23, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rose Street in Edinburgh's new town runs parallel to Princes Street. It is a centre for restaurants, cafes and bars. There are lots to choose from.

    We ate in the Amber Rose which was very cheap both for food and drink. We bought meals (chicken and mushroom pie, haddock and chips) including pints of carlsberg, strongbow etc for £6.95. The pub also offered two meals for £8.95. Food was OK, not great, not bad. It was certainly plentiful and filling. A pint of beer cost £2.55 (John Smith's, Carlsberg, Tennants) - a miracle by Edinburgh standards. Bottles of wine started from £6.95- also amazing for Edinburgh.

    Quiz night on Tuesday. Live music Friday and Saturday. Much cheaper than eating/drinking in the old town. We were there on a Tuesday not sure if there are the same great deals at weekends.

    I would certainly recommend Rose Street as an alternative to the old town for meals.

    The Halfway House: Traditional Scottish food.

    by IreneMcKay Written Aug 23, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When we visit Edinburgh we normally eat and drink in the Halfway House a tiny pub on the steps of Fleshmarket Close. The pub is extremely small and is not pleasant when overcrowded, but if you can get in and get a decent seat it serves excellent traditional Scottish food among other dishes.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish here is Cullin Skink - a Scottish fish soup served with bread and butter. I also enjoyed the game pie. My husband is a fan of the sausages in mustard gravy.

    FOO-KIN IN BELFAST

    by DAO Written Aug 20, 2012


    Of course I ate here! How could I not? Well, it’s not actually a bar and they don’t do the other thing in their name either, but they do have good noodles. It’s an all you can eat Chinese buffet and there are some excellent dishes. Everything is hot and fresh. You can actually watch them cooking more in their open plan kitchen. Rice or noodles, meat or veggie, they have it. Wash it down with a nice cold pint of beer and you have a filling meal.

    Enjoy!

    OPENING HOURS:

    M-F 12pm-2pm
    5pm-10pm
    SAT 5pm-10pm
    SUN 1pm-10pm

    Please note: This is a BYO restaurant. So brink your own beer or bottle of wine from one of the local shops nearby.

    FUNKY ASIA: SUPERCOOL IN LONDON

    by DAO Written Aug 17, 2012


    Stunning. Amazing. Wild. Fun. Eclectic.

    This is an experience. You get a very interesting visual experience, exceptional food, devoted staff, and even the dishes (the dishes, not the food) are a sight to see. I was made to feel welcome and valued from the moment I walked in the door and into the multi-color interior. I had a nicely priced and iced (cold) Ashai beer as I settled into ordering my food. I ordered the tuna starter, the chicken salad and the Duck Breast Hanoi Style. My waiter casually suggested the xxx and made it sound like such a natural accompaniment that I took him up on the offer. Boy, was he right.

    First came my tuna. Stunning to see, better to devour.

    A word of caution: the Chef loves hot red chillies! You can pick them out, but don’t expect bland food here!

    Then the salad and then my duck. This was served with Bok Choy and Jasmine Rice. Absolutely perfect!

    I hope my pictures do this artful scene justice. Not only did it all look great – I left feeling well fed, well looked after and absolutely happy after a very bad day at work. This is a great place to get therapy.

    I was fortunate enough to have booked a deal on the Top Table website. I had a great meal, an even better experience, and could fit a top meal into a business budget.

    Rarely have I had such a dinning experience anywhere and this is one of the very best I have had in London in 30+ years.

    If you do decide to experience Funky Asia for yourself – bring your camera. They are really proud of their décor and happy for you to snap away.

    DELHI BRASSERIE: HELL NO - LONDON

    by DAO Written Aug 17, 2012


    I won’t be back. I was escorted to a table they were just changing and sat down. My cutlery was then dropped onto my table from more than a foot above me. It literally bounced as it all hit. That’s the service you are forced to pay 10% for! In my whole life I have never had any waiter ever drop a knife, fork and spoon onto a table and walk away. These guys were all smarmy bastards at best. The nice words were said by annoyed and bored looking faces. They were the most indifferent staff in any Indian cuisine restaurant I have ever seen. This is a small little place on a busy street getting people in and out as fast as possible.

    The food was average at best. Oddly the meat was cooked to perfection, moist and succulent. To bad it had little spice or flavour to it. I asked for curry sauce to spice up my Tandoori Mixed Grill. Boy was I in for a let down. No flavour there either. Pilau Rice? Yep, no flavour. They must save a fortune on spices. Knobs

    The final insult came at the end. I produced a card to pay and in the middle of the transaction I was asked in such an inviting and cool way ‘Do you want to leave a gratuity?’. Yes- they were asking for a second tip ! Astounding.

    I couldn’t leave quick enough.

    London has some excellent Indian, even Nepalese restaurants. This is not one of them.

    Favorite Dish:
    The beer was the only thing that was ok and even that was expensive

    LIBERTY KEBABISH: THE BEST INDIAN CUISINE IN LONDON

    by DAO Written Aug 17, 2012



    This is the best Indian cuisine I have ever eaten in London. I loved every bite and I will not only recommend others dine here, I will be going back for more mouth-watering food. Liberty Kebabish is family owned and run and they take pride in their ingredients, cooking, hospitality and your dinning pleasure. Real care, love and attention meant every bite I took was packed with flavour and spice.

    The owner, Mr. Hashmi (photo 1), opened Liberty Kebabish 30 years ago. He explained to me why my garlic nan bread had 2 layers and seemed so full of flavour. It’s because they add the ingredients inside and the double layer keeps it tender, moist and protects the flavours inside. Yum! He also explained why his wife’s cooking was so good. It’s not only the spices and attention to detail. They only use fresh meat from a butcher. Never frozen. This means you get top quality, top flavour and they also add in top hospitality. Get in there!

    The family are from Lahore in Pakistan, near the Indian border. They offer Punjabi cuisine, which means adding flavour and spice – not overpowering heat you often see in southern Indian cuisine. The name Kebabish originated in the Liberty Market of Lahore in the 1970’s and Mr. Hashmi chose this name to honour the roots of the food they serve today. His wife cooks the wonderful food and his nephew helps to manage the restaurant. You are treated like an honoured guest the second you walk in the door.

    My starter, Lamb Seekh Kebab, looked really juicy and my first bite let me know I had found a special place. Every bite had a real punch of flavour. Absolutely awesome! With my garlic nan, it really hit the spot. When my sizzling mixed grill was brought our on a tray, I could tell from just how it looked that this was absolutely top quality. The meat looked fresh, tender and appetizing. Yes it was! Gorgeous! Simply the best I have enjoyed in London in 32 years.

    After my meal, the owner, Mr. Mohammad Yahya Hashmi, talked to me about the history of the restaurant, how they made the food, where he sourced the ingredients and made me feel a like a valued customer. The gentleman is pure class.

    OK, so a few other great points about Liberty Kebabish.

    You can book online for a table or takeaway. The have a FREE DISCOUNT CLUB. That’s right, you keep eating here and they discount the price. Their prices are already very good to start with. You can use this to dine in or take out. That’s just inspired customer service. They have a Sunday Buffet all-you-can-eat for just £4.95! They even change this menu every 2 weeks.

    Liberty Kebabish is open Tuesday – Saturday 5:30pm – 11:30pm and Sunday Noon – 11:00pm.

    The restaurant is fully licensed (they have a full bar) and all meat is Halal.

    Favorite Dish:
    Starters – Lamb Seekh Kebab and Garlic Nan Bread. Main – Tandoori Mixed Grill with a side dish of curry sauce and rice. Add in a large bottle of Cobra beer and pure heaven!

    The mixed grill is a lot of food. The prawn (shrimp) portion alone was massive. This will fill you up.

    The Euston Flyer: Pleasant meal

    by IreneMcKay Updated Jun 23, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had a meal here with a friend on a recent visit to London. This is quite a friendly pub serving breakfasts, lunch and dinner. My friend is vegetarian. There were a couple of choices for him. In the end he went for mushroom and mozzarella ravioli. I had chicken mushroom pie. The food was tasty and arrived pretty quickly. A pleasant spot for a quick and filling lunch.

    The Trout: The best food in Britian!

    by ChartIt Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This place has faboulous meals not the cheapest but they are wonderful. The Trout was the inspiration that Tolkien needed for the Green Dragon pub in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. For those unfarmilar with this, it is the hobbits hometown travern. There is a cosy family friendly enviorment. There is outdoor seating if you wanted to enjoy the Isis river. There is also a room with a massive fireplace and lots of rocking chairs and you can sit there and drink and enjoy the wonderful fire.

    Favorite Dish: I adore their goat cheese salad! It has a large goat cheese lightly fried with carmalized onions and rosemary. It is just to die for.

    Treasure Inn: the King Prawn was wonderful

    by margaretvn Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went here with my parents to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and had a lovely meal. The people were very friendly , the food was delicious and tasty, there was no loud music so we could chat easily with each other (my dad is a bit deaf which sometimes gives problems).
    The menu has a good range of dishes. There also a happy hour when meals are cheaper and the dishes are also available as take away.
    They are being renovated at the moment but we did not have any problems because of that.

    Favorite Dish: Koos had Chinese Roast Duck and said it was delicious and I had Cantonese Sweet and Sour King Prawn ..... the best I have ever had !

    Bell, Book and Candle: Interesting Theme

    by JimTammy Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The Bell, Book and Candle is a Gothic themed restaurant. Like an old church Disney style. But very cool, lively with great foodand good service. I craved that pasta again for days. It is also part of a restaurant chain Eerie Pub Co, so there are other locations, with different names throughout London and the UK.

    Favorite Dish: I had pesto penne pasta with mixed peppers, chicken and Brie.
    Oh and have a specialty drink - Seven Deadly Sins. The Sloth was truly decadent. Amaretto, Baileys Smirnoff Kahlua, Cream and Chocolate sauce. (yes, I asked to keep the menu and he let me).

    Bryn Tyrch: Bryn Tyrch

    by steventilly Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first ever truly vegetarian pub/restaurant that I visited. This was a real rarity in those days (1990), and there still aren't many 100% veggie pubs around. Bryn Tyrch's menu was a breath of fresh air and even today offers a different variety of vegetarian food than you'll find in many places (I notice from their recent menus that they now serve fish and a modicum of meat, but their menu remains largely vegetarian).
    I don't know if it's the same today but the outdoor eating area was strangely "across the road" from the pub (see pic and ignore naff 1990's hairstyles), making meal deliveries interesting at times.

    Favorite Dish: Tempura vegatables with spicy dips
    Broccoli, Cauliflower & Stilton Nut Crumble

    ANATOLIAN FLAME: TOP TURKISH !

    by DAO Written Jan 1, 2011


    I booked a table at the Anatolian Flame on the website Toptable . The reason I chose it was my first choice, near work, refused to honour a food deal. So I booked this restaurant, very last minute, because it was near my hotel. Wow am I glad I did! Otherwise I would have never discovered this fantastic little eatery. Just look for reviews of this place on many websites. They get top marks 100% of the time for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I cannot recommend them enough.

    After a long and bad day I was greeted outside by large flames and a nice look exterior. Stepping inside I was warmly greeted by my waitress and made to feel welcome.

    My starter was hummus with fresh bread. What a delight! The best hummus I have ever had in any restaurant. It tasted great, was not covered in oil and was accompanied with yogurt and a mildly spicy sort of salsa. I ordered extra bread just to enjoy this more. It went down very well with my delicious Efes (Turkish) beer.

    My main course was the signature Anatolian Mixed Grill. Oh yes! Get in there! Every single morsel was spiced deliciously and cooked perfectly. Moist, succulent and just perfect. Served with rice it was an absolute delight. This was accompanied by a great glass of the always delicious Yakut (Red) Wine.

    The restaurant is well decorated, cosy and warm. This would be a great restaurant for a romantic dinner, a business meeting or family meal. They do a varied menu including Mezzes where you can select the dishes yourself.

    DAO’s recommendation? Find your way here and enjoy your meal!

    Favorite Dish:

    Hummus starter, Anatolian Mixed Grill and/or a cold Efes Beer and Yakut wine.
