“Distinctive and exciting” flavours of Burma (“an under-represented cuisine in London”) have now made their way from a stall near London Bridge, via a Hackney railway arch and a Shoreditch restaurant (still running) to the West End, in Covent Garden’s newish ‘The Yards’ development, thanks to founders Dan Anton and Burmese chef Zaw Mahesh. Named after a salad of pickled tea leaves, Lahpet is “lively and noisy”, and its food is “thrilling”. Top Tip – “the luminescent ginger salad… so zingy and flavourful!”

“Top Burmese cuisine, with nice modernising touches” has won a fanclub for this small but growing brand, which as well as operating a ‘street food kitchen’ at nearby Spitalfields Market has this year-old, permanent, white-walled, communal-table canteen. Top Menu Tip – salads, in particular the tea leaf one.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
