The first rule of dining at Hunan is not to tell everyone about it, except if you’re us, in which case that would be terrible for business. It’s one of the ultimate ‘if you know, you know’ restaurants in London, a Chinese fine dining spot located on a pretty street in Belgravia. There’s a ‘trust me’ tasting menu that changes every day, and though you don’t have a choice in what you eat, you should definitely trust the chefs, as they know what they’re doing. The food comes out in small, immaculate courses, and the prawn toast and crispy duck are both excellent, as is the seafood. It’s a lovely spot for lunch, but do ask for the seats closest to the window, as the back of the restaurant can feel a bit cramped.
