In London I recommend the Asian restaurant Benihana – an absolute insider tip for the city on the Thames. Some really top-class show cooking is done here! The food is fantastic and the chefs are very chatty. Eating here isn't cheap, but it really is worth it. As far as I'm concerned it's London's best restaurant. It's best to book a table in advance.
