Rather difficult to beat for combined location, price and quality.
A solid very, very good, but also very noisy.
Probably the best in Soho for that occasional breath of straight air.
Favourite Berlin combination of food (including schnitzel) and atmosphere.
Exemplary food experience, especially at an outdoor table in human-compatible weather conditions with the Motzstraße catwalk in full bloom.
It might be perceived as simply contrary and churlish to find fault with the Berghain.
This will complete your Berlin experience, even if you just wander round the food halls. And certainly not without camp appeal.
Very nice. Very civilised.
In its own category, and better quality than neighbouring More. Try for the window table (or sit outdoors).
This is a rather cool/uncool place to eat.
Favourite Berlin strudel, but also super lunches (from a reassuringly limited menu).
A Berlin favourite/must. Chicken + bread + both salads + beer (all exemplary). Authentic and unpretentious atmosphere. Feels local but also like a Berlin institution.
Especially nice cakes, and not too far east of Nollendorfplatz.
A great place for a stylish-but-not-stuffy special occasion (or just a nice place to go for mid-morning breakfast or mid-afternoon cakes. Or lunch. And try to get a booth/banquette.
Atmosphere, food and prices all particularly pleasing.
I think this is Woody Allen's favourite London cinema.
Favourite bargain in central London. Consider the dosa too.
The balls. Tricky to get a table sometimes, but always worth it. Just really good food and the right level of buzzy-friendly.
An all-you-can-eat situation with integrity. Very unusual.
It doesn't look like much but don't let that fool you.
Worth queueing for. Tasty and not too pricey.
Take the advice and ask for it to be baked for a half-minute longer, and, most importantly, with lots of extra oil. Best in London, and so close to Old Compton St.
A bit of a squeeze, but well worth it. Great attention to flavour and detail.
Best thing in the quality food ghetto that Exmouth Market has become.
Favourite pho full stop (including the dry pho). And the chicken curry. And the banh cuon etc.
A jewel indeed. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
This is not the Valerie of yore. The coffee might be just good enough, but the cakes are lobotomised versions of what they were before the business got sold and reinvented as a cross-country chain.
Definitely pushes the right gay buttons, but where it really matters (the food), it falters badly (and it's overpriced).
