For all the cold hard cash packed into Granary Square and Coal Drops Yard, it’s actually Caledonian Road where you want to head to for a meal around here. Kaki is a Chinese restaurant where the menu options go into triple figures. Don’t let that put you off though, because this is a restaurant you want to come back to a couple of times. The food moves around different regions of China, meaning you can try everything from a hot pot or meatballs, to mapo tofu. There’s also one huge round table, lazy Susan and all, that’s ideal for a big group.
