“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”.

“A breath of fresh air in the stuffy world of gastronomic London” – this stupendous first solo venture from former Nopi head chef Ramael Scully opened in St James’s Market in early 2018, creating ‘out there’ fusion fare which reflects his heritage… which is Chinese/Indian/Irish/Balinese! He’s assembled “a joyful, creative team of people who care and love food” and results are “exceptional in every sense”: “innovative food that’s a simple and pure joy” and “staff who make a visit a very special occasion”.

For 31 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).

"The meal started with a bowl of chickpeas as a small hors d’oeuvre; they were wonderful! Subtle spices that had multiple layers of taste. In a chickpea! The rest of the meal just continued the excellence and the classy and novel tastes. We had a party of 6 that was very merry and stayed until closing time and yet the service was perfect, humourous and helpful. Perfect ambience for us close to the open kitchen (almost like a chef’s table), vibrant and busy. A Triple 5 night all round. "

"Exceptional and creative dishes, well presented. The menu is an engaging topic of conversation. Tables a little too close to each other for my liking (especially in C19 times). "
