You will never tire of eating out in London as there are hundreds and hundreds of restaurants to choose from – for every taste, desire and pocket.
London has the whole range – bargain eateries, takeaways, organic and vegetarian corners, and exclusive and expensive Michelin-starred restaurants.
And then of course the cuisines… London's multicultural communities have endowed the city's restaurants with very distinctive flavours, ingredients and spices.
You will find classic and avant-garde French; Chinese, Thai and Japanese; traditional and modern Italian; "Indian" food from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka; Ethiopian, Egyptian, Nigerian and Moroccan delicacies; Lebanese and Persian dishes; Argentinian, Mexican and Colombian meals; and of course, British food – traditional and experimental, to be sampled in great venues or gastronomic pubs.
Some eateries are spread out in the city; others are conveniently located in specific roads or areas. For Chinese delicacies, all you have to do is visit Chinatown; to taste Lebanese food, walk down Edgware Road and follow your nose…
In Our London: Food and Drink, BBC journalists, radio presenters and language section editors offer tips on some of the areas to go to – to find quality food. They discuss a handful of ethnic communities that have settled in London and have given the city a vibrant cultural legacy.
Our journalists do not provide the names of restaurants but describe where to go and what to sample. It's up to you to choose the exact location… explore and enjoy!
