A popular restaurant in Notting Hill, E&O serves pan-Asian cuisine in a vibrant and modern setting. It was opened in 2001 and has earned a reputation for delicious, eclectic food and high-quality service.

Situated at the eastern side of the Serpentine, the lake in Hyde Park, this is a fantastic place to sit back and relax - especially when the sun is shining.
Enjoy a hot drink or a glass of wine while taking in the lovely views of the park. What's more, there are many tasty snacks on offer - like cakes, sandwiches and salads.
Although Paddington Station might not be the first place you think of for a sophisticated Champagne bar, from the moment you step into Searcy's you'll be whisked away from the frenzied travellers and into an art-deco oasis where you can relax and enjoy some of the finest drinks in the world.
Just some of the options available at the elegant bar include Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot and Balfour Brut.
Situated in Marylebone, Locanda Locatelli is a family-run restaurant established in 2002 with head chef Giorgio Locatelli in the kitchen and his wife Plaxy in the front of house.
Featuring a friendly, intimate atmosphere - accentuated by a stunning interior designed by architect David Collins - Locanda Locatelli is a premier destination for those seeking top-quality traditional Italian fare.
If you love sushi and Japanese food, Dinings is the place to go in Marylebone. Situated on Harcourt Street, this chic venue serves a wide range of Izakaya-style dishes with a fusion of modern European cuisine.
Dinings takes pride in using organic and locally sourced ingredients. Plus, the portions are deliberately small - think tapas - so you can taste a little bit of everything.
For some of the best dim sum in London, the Phoenix Palace is the place to go. Located a short walk from Regent's Park, this ornately decorated Chinese restaurant offers a huge range of dishes.
You may have to queue for a table, but it's definitely worth the wait for the steamed dumplings, crispy spring rolls and cheung fun - and be sure to try the barbeque pork buns.
