The Best London Restaurants Open On Sunday Night

Handmade dumplings, warming pies, injera platters, and more.

You would think that getting a decent meal on a Sunday night would be pretty easy in London, but it so often turns out that the one restaurant you really wanted to go to is closed. To help out with that, here’s a guide to some of the best restaurants in London that are open on Sunday evenings.

12 Archer St, Soho

The Soho spot is one of the best Italian restaurants in London. Packed most nights during the week, this is the place to go when you need Sunday night celebratory pasta. It’s open until 9:30pm, as is Gelupo opposite for dessert.

One of London’s best Cantonese restaurants pretty much always has a perma-queue of people patiently waiting for its handmade dumplings and crispy-skinned roast duck. But swinging by the King’s Cross hot spot late on Sunday might just be A Move. It’s open until 10pm.

Nandine is one of our favourite restaurants in Camberwell and its evening-only spot on Camberwell Church Street is a brilliant Sunday choice. The seven spice chicken shish coming off the ocakbasi, served with flatbread and salad, is excellent.

Arguably London’s most romantic restaurant, the legendary Soho spot is open until 10:30pm on Sundays. If somewhere candlelit with panna cotta on the menu is what you’re after, Andrew Edmunds should be close to the top of your list.

The buzzy Ethiopian spot in Camberwell is regularly filled with friends and families tearing into injera with misir wot, kitfo, and more. Sunday nights are no different and the restaurant is open until 11pm. A good shout if you’re in a group.

As good for groups as it is for a solo bowl of phở, the Vietnamese restaurant in Covent Garden is open until 10pm on Sundays. The menu spans all across Vietnam’s regions and is particularly useful for a mix of different dietary requirements.

The mix of Mediterranean and North African-inspired sharing plates at Morito on Hackney Road has made it one of London’s most-loved small plates restaurants. It’s open until 9pm on a Sunday and gets bonus points for enabling a Boris Johnson walkout.

Al Kahf is a low-key Somali restaurant off Whitechapel Road, not obvious to the eye and nor to Google Maps, but somewhere you should very much know about. A platter of bariis iskukaris and some tender meat on top is a brilliant Sunday dinner. Especially as it’s open until 11:30pm.

The roomy Covent Garden location of this excellent Burmese restaurant is one of our go-tos for ‘literally everyone’ spots. Settle down with some noodle soup and be safe in the knowledge it’s open until 9pm.

At Yada’s in Peckham there are a dozen or so tables, big and small, and a BYOB policy that’s happily embraced every night of the week. Plus there are fruity lamb kebabs and mezze platters with dips and salads galore. Swing by until 11pm.

London’s best Thai restaurant is open until 9pm on Sundays. This isn’t the kind of place you can wander into, though. Call or message the Leytonstone restaurant to make a booking, or else there will be no moo krob for you.

Hand-pulled belt noodles and chilli oil stains galore sounds like a dream Sunday night and it’s what’s on the menu at Master Wei. The Xi’anese spot in Bloomsbury is open until 9pm.

Yashin in Kensington is doing some of the most inventive sushi in London and, yes, this is a fancy Sunday night dinner move. But you may or may not have had a hard weekend so you may or may not deserve to eat some sushi topped with truffles.

London’s go-to taqueria is a great Sunday night restaurant. Not just because it’s open but because Sunday is when one-off specials are on the menu. Chicken with mole, enchiladas, and more. The Surrey Quays spot is open until 9pm.

The Newington Green wine bar is one of those rare things: a bar and restaurant open until 10.30pm on a Sunday. It’s a matchbox-sized, oat-toned, chalk-and-board, walk-in only N16 wine bar that’s big on bottles and small on plates. 

The dinner-only nonna-filled pasta spot in Chelsea is the most nourishing Sunday evening choice around. There’s cacio e pepe, tagliatelle alla bolognese, lasagne, and more.

The Tamil Prince

A curry house in an ex-pub is a particularly glorious British combination and that’s what The Tamil Prince in Islington is. On Sundays it opens at 11am and closes at 10:30pm—plenty of time for lamb chops, paneer butter masala, and more.

The legendary Turkish institution on Green Lanes is open until midnight every day. It's the traditional choice for anyone seeking a last-minute slap-up meal of manti and mixed doner on Sunday evening.

Cottage pie, stilton mousse, and other hearty British classics are on the menu at Maggie Jones’s. The old-school Kensington restaurant is a classy and comforting affair and you can sit down for dinner here until 9pm on a Sunday.
