18 "Unique Dining Experience" restaurants in London.
Old, full of red velvet, and with a taste for custard, Rules is a high-priced, novelty-feeling British restaurant in Covent Garden.
Endo at the Rotunda is a 16-seater sushi restaurant in White City, providing one of the most unique and delicious experiences in London.
Tayer + Elementary is a three-part bar in Old Street. You should come here to drink and snack, but you should also come here to eat the tasting menu.
A converted canal boat making great seafood in a unique (and very much moving) setting, London Shell Co is the ideal summer, special occasion, meal.
Abeno is a lovely Japanese spot in Bloomsbury specialising in okonomiyaki, but it’s also worth visiting for sides like the tempura, and beef karaage.
At Hunan, a Chinese restaurant in Victoria, you don’t choose the menu - the menu chooses you. Their ‘trust me’ tasting menu is a classic.
Sweetings is a classic spot in the City serving seafood lunch and dollops of nostalgia to suited business types.
Roganic in Marylebone is a ‘let me take a moment to explain the menu’ kind of place featuring foraged ingredients. That said, it’s really very good.
Evelyn’s Table is a fun and intimate 11 seater kitchen on the edge of Chinatown serving creative southern European dishes.
Black Axe Mangal on Highbury Corner isn’t a typical restaurant. It’s loud, it’s fun, and it’s a little bit weird. And the delicious food is the same.
This location is everything you would expect from a Dishoom - great Indian food, in a grand setting, with long queues.
This second Hoppers location in Marylebone serves the same excellent Sri Lankan food as the Soho original, and actually takes reservations.
Yashin Ocean House is the sister restaurant of the excellent Yashin Sushi. They also serve excellent sushi but also dishes with a lot of theater.
Old-school arcade games and drinks by the river are a perfect match, and you can get all of them at Four Quarters East in Hackney Wick.
London’s favourite 24-hour, swish restaurant at the top of a skyscraper is perfect for brunch or very late night eats.
