Went end of last year. Really fucking good. More popular since he was on that chef show and now he's number #3 or whatever. Booked again for August!

Looking for recommendations for child friendly but still decent for me places for a trip down London way with my daughter in August. She is not one for fussy menu's etc but I like to eat hype tings. I'll settle for good quality grub that's not chain food but something with flair would be appreciated.

The local Gauchos is a good one.

Rarely get out these days but splashed out at Hakkasan last week (hanway pl), well over rated.

I didn't rate breddos.

Jugged Hare if you want a smart gastropub. Not good for vegetarians. Iskele on Whitecross street is not hipster but good Turkish food.
There is a serviceable hipster-style burger place in the Barbican with a decent outside area depending on what time your going.

Hakkasan been shit for ages, since it got taken over I'd say.

Gauchos is meh.

Near barbican is a bit tricky - monohon does good ramen. Lino gets good reviews.

Want to take my mum out for her 60th - anywhere in London for fancy asian food that isn't too trendy? Would've said hakkasan but comments above suggest otherwise

Ivy at Paul's is an impressive place, food was surprisingly good but it's a bit flash/wanky

I like the idea of the tasting menu of dim sum at hakkasan, so something similar to that?

Anyone been to Lina's, need a fairly nice place to take 6 which is reasonably priced, one of them is a sodding veggie?

South Ken/Chelsea area would be good.
