Shackfuyu is a modern, trendy Japanese-Korean spot by the people who popularised the ramen thing in London with their restaurant Bone Daddies. and it’s perfect for a casual midweek dinner, or when there’s a group of you keen to hunker down and eat some solid Asian food. We like the Korean wings and lamb ribs, but if you skip the bo ssam-style short rib, you did it wrong.

Bob Bob Ricard is an excellent place to drink champagne and people watch. The French/Russian food is good, and the room is over the top lush.
The ten person counter at Berenjak, a corridor-like Iranian kebab and mazeh restaurant in Soho, makes it the perfect spot if you’re dining solo.
