“Ramuel Scully gets flavour out of ingredients like no one else” at his ambitious St James’s Market fixture, where he and his team serve a “wacky and interesting menu based on ferments and underused ingredients” from their open kitchen. Its ratings are not as stratospheric as when it first opened, due to the odd doubt that “the quality of foodstuffs can be lost in the plethora of flavourings”. But the balance of feedback this year was highly enthusiastic: “it’s my London go-to” with a “very different menu that changes enough to warrant a return”.

“Wildly different and by-and-large exceptional” – Ramuel Scully’s “brilliantly creative food” delivers “subtly spiced, multiply layered, classy and novel tastes” at his St James’s Market five-year-old. “For those close to the open kitchen, it’s almost like a chef’s table” and the “kitchen brigade and front-of-house team deliver an experience that is at the same time other-worldly and disarmingly intimate”. Even its strongest fans can feel the trip is “let down by the interior”, however, and ratings more generally were undercut this year by those who found it pricey or felt there were “too many odd combinations”.

“So innovative! 10/10”“the menu reads like a jumble, but is bangin’” at this St James’s Market four-year-old whose “unique fusion food” “still knocks it out of the park with its originality of flavours and technique”. Few restaurants attract such consistently upbeat feedback, which extends to the slick service and stylish room. “The experience comes at a price, but it’s COMPLETELY justified!”

“Mind-blowing food” that’s “hard to classify”“a true pot pourri of tastes from around the world using a cascade of daringly combined ingredients to create a theatrical experience for the eyes, and a surprising explosion for the taste buds” – is carving ever-wider culinary renown for Ramael Scully’s “exceptionally interesting” three-year-old in St James’s Market, whose kitchen is “really pushing the boundaries”. The room is “classy” too, and staff are “so extremely knowledgeable and helpful”. “The only downside is a crowd that’s a bit St James-y”. Top Tip – “sit at the counter, where talking to the chefs is a bonus”.
