    Based in the heart of London, Goodman is perhaps the top steakhouse in the city and arguably one of the best worldwide.

    26 Maddox Street

    Behind Our Choice

    Steaks and burgers; that’s all one can say. Fortunately, its hype has not yet caught up to its taste, so reservations remain relatively easy to come by. So take note, carnivores (and vegetarians with cheat day quotas), and get your fill of red meat here!

    Indian food is a staple in London, and Dishoom is one of the best authentic Indian options, appealing to locals and tourists alike.

    22 Kingly Street

    Behind Our Choice

    Indian cuisine has long seeped into the British mainstream with westernised signatures like Chicken Tikka Masala being one of the United Kingdom’s national dishes. However, restaurants like Dishoom provides more authentic Indian food at relatively affordable prices. What beats naan, tikka, and curry for nights out with friends?
