Yes, you read that right - this restaurant really is called Flavour Bastard. So what's in a name? Well, it seems that chef-patron Pratap Chahal is keen to use a fusion of flavours - gleaned from his time at Claridge’s, Chez Bruce, Cinnamon Club and Galvin Bistrot - to create an international menu with 'no attempt at authenticity'. Taking over the former site of Arbutus in Soho.

Yes, they really called it that! So what’s in a name – it seems that chef-patron Pratap Chahal is keen to use a fusion of flavours – gleaned from his time at Claridge’s, Chez Bruce, Cinnamon Club and Galvin Bistrot – to create an international menu with ‘no attempt at authenticity’. It opens in September 2017, taking over the former site of Arbutus in Soho.
For 30 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).
