November 2013 Restaurant Reviews Archive from Foodepedia

  • La Mancha, Chiswick

    Friday November 15th, 2013

    La Mancha aims to bring independent Spanish cuisine to a Chiswick High Road choc-full of commercial chains. Does it succeed? Alex Ozga finds out.

  • Retro Feasts

    Friday November 15th, 2013

    For Luke Thomas, just 19, the 70s must be as relevant to him as the Wars of the Roses are to me - a time of horror that he managed to miss out on. Nonetheless, he’s got a bit of a fascination for the decade that fashion forgot and has a temporary restaurant, Retro Feasts, serving up some reinvented classics at the Embassy Club until January

  • Pip's Dish, Covent Garden

    Monday November 11th, 2013

    Pip’s Dish in general delivers a pleasing meal at a good price and in a style that is now pretty much unique in central London. It doesn’t have bare brick walls; it doesn’t have those ubiquitous filament lights.  And this close to the West End I doubt you’ll find better value.

  • The Earl Derby, Kilburn

    Friday November 8th, 2013

    There’s something strange happening to the Kilburn high road. To the locals, the ones that have been here for the longest, these may well seem like the end times.

  • Urban Meadow

    Wednesday November 6th, 2013

    Urban Meadow, all day eating, a changing British menu, bright cheerful surroundings and keen to please staff and when the weather's warmer a good place for al fresco feeding.

  • Pulcinella, Soho

    Monday November 4th, 2013

    Ignoring a string of bad reviews on restaurant websites, I turned a blind-eye to the keyboard critics and had dinner at Pulcinella on Old Compton Street anyway. 

  • Dim sum at Royal China, Queensway

    Monday November 4th, 2013

    Service was quick and amicable, with none of the supposed coldness that some other online reviews complain about. The dishes are priced at an affordable £3-4.50. At that price, it’s easily worth a punt.
