Any good chicken places in London? I saw someone post pics from a new place on insta but I can't find it now, had a big plate of fried chicken and waffles

Yeah that was it, can't be bothered going to Shoreditch! Anyone recommend somewhere round Covent Garden or Soho for lunch? Don't have to be chicken

Covent Garden:
Chick n sours (whole fried chicken!)
Flat iron (£10 steak and free ice cream)
Kanada ya (Japanese ramen spot)
Dishoom

Soho:
Good friend (formerly called "Bigbe" a massive fried chicken breast, bloody good but it's take out)
Blacklock
Hoppers
Eat Tokyo
Patty and bun
If your going soon then check out Sambal Shoiks pop up in Sun and 13 Cantons pub, went yesterday and had the really good laksa

I'm there today, chicken and sours looks good but they don't do lunch.
I'm on my own so don't want anything too Trumpy. I've been to flat iron in Soho a good few times, and it's good but I fancy a change, I'll check out the other spots

As above, didnt rate it at all.

Went to Korubuta by Marble Arch the other night, thought the food and service was really good. Pretty much almost ordered everything, only thing I didn't like was the pork ribs, told them that and they took it off the bill.
Music was decent too, not one for an intimate dinner but good for groups.

Charlotte Street Hotel is apparently good. My mum went there and enjoyed it. Sketch is also supposed to be good.

I am staying in London for one night on a Sunday in April with the Mrs

She has been a vegetarian for the 10 years we have been together but now isn't!
So list me some good meat restaurants, anything will do, flat iron to hawksmoor. Will be there for Lunch, dinner and breakfast (and maybe another dinner if I can eat that much food!)

Hawksmoor is a bit of a basic city boy choice. Try Smoking Goat in Soho or Black Axe Mangal on Highbury corner for meat focused restaurants.

I'm sorry but I rate Hawksmoor, particularly the Air street one. Both decent suggestions though.
Never been to the new pitt cue but could be a shout, also berber & q or their shawarma bar. Thought the bbq at Shotgun off Carnaby was very good when I went. Or go Lurra for some Galician beef.

Haven't tried Berber & Q yet but mate went and said music was stupid loud… trying to be cool but just making conversation a struggle. Can anyone else confirm that? I would like to go but the thought of not being able to enjoy conversation puts me off

It's probably a little loud, but still bearable. Food is great though.

Gymkhana worth the price?

Berber is great, probably favourite restaurant in London, don't think the music is too loud at all.

Gymkhana is great but feel like that kind of food needs to be served in a casual way. Would probably choose Dishoom over it…

Gymkhana is more a destination restaurant, make a night of it or posh lunch - plenty of heat in the dishes which is good. I hear their sister place Trishna is also v good.
Went to Kricket again last night - some good dishes there
Agree Dishoom is very good
so many places now in London - fantastic food options at decent £

Word, new borough one is good too. City boy's choice is gaucho anyway
