Aqua Kyoto

Aqua Kyoto is one of the capital's most unique and exhilarating dining destinations that sits high above Oxford Circus serving Japanese cuisine at its finest. Asides from the romantically lit roof terrace and the sleek black and red décor, Aqua oozes innovation and creativity from their central sushi bar to their open sumibiyaki charcoal grill. Lunch or dinner not your thing? You can look forward to an "infinity brunch", with food served with unlimited Veuve Cliquot.

J. Sheekey

Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Leicester Square down a small side street by the Wyndham Theatre, Sheekey's décor is sophisticated and understated, leaving the spotlight to shine on the excellently sourced and prepared seafood. Love old-fashioned glamour? The white-aproned, black-waist coated staff are charm incarnate and the separate booths and secluded tables cry out for romantic trysts.

Bob Bob Ricard

With its famous "Press for Champagne" button and a luxury English and Russian menu that starts with sub-zero vodka to its eclectic clientele, Bob Bob Ricard is London's most iconic Soho restaurant. With its glamorous all-booth dining room, the space itself is next-level glitzy, with all gold/brass fixtures and elegantly uniformed staff. If you are looking to intrigue and impress, this place is hard to better.


Opium is a stylish, hidden gem in the heart of Chinatown. Literally. Located behind a discreet jade door, you will find a dark stairway to the cool and chic setting. The decor is oriental themed but again keeps an element of freshness with a twist that makes it modern and current; metal finishes on miss-match Chinese furniture gives Opium, a contemporary London feel that is very welcome. Expect a cool and stylish crowd, who are distinctly in the know, how else would they have found this Chinatown gem?

Chotto Matte

Chotto Matte brings together the best of Japanese and Peruvian cultures serving up high-quality Nikkei cuisine, colourful cocktails, and the best sushi. With menus and kitchen under executive chef Jordan Sclare (former head chef at Aqua Kyoto and Nobu) and head chef Michael Paul, Chotto Matte is a large, beautiful restaurant and bar set over three floors. Looking for quirky, glitz and a more affordable taste of Nobu? You are in luck.
