Chet’s, an LA-Thai-inspired restaurant in the lobby of The Hoxton in Shepherd’s Bush, feels too cool and exciting to be a hotel restaurant. It has a menu filled with Thai salads, smashburgers, and sharing plates with three chilli pepper signs next to them. Yes, a tuna melt is over £15, which is more than a tuna melt should ever be, but the foliage-filled, diner-like interior is a fun place to spend a lazy Sunday lunch. If you manage to get one of the cosy curtained booths you might even want to stick around for dinner. It feels very easy-breezy, with a mix of people sipping on lattes with their laptops, and groups sharing firecracker lobster noodles.
