Featured Ealing Restaurants
1. Oro Di Napoli Pizza restaurant in Ealing 6 The Quadrant, Little Ealing Lane - W5
“There’s no better pizza in London” (“twenty or so combinations of toppings or you can make your own as you wish”), say fans of this “humming” South Ealing spot, where “the kitchen is visible (almost indivisible) from the small and intimate dining area” presided over by “smiling, passionate staff”. It’s thriving in an area thick with the smoke of Neapolitan wood-fired ovens – nearby Santa Maria is another claimant as ‘London’s best’.
2. Santa Maria Pizza restaurant in Ealing 15 St Mary’s Rd - W5
“Consistently fantastic pizza, with interesting toppings and a nicely textured base” have created a major buzz around this independent Neapolitan trio, which started out in Ealing before opening off Fulham Broadway and in Fitzrovia. It’s still the W5 original that incites most fuss – “a small cafe/bistro, it’s always crowded you can end up sitting in a rather tight, alley-like room” although in recent times they’ve also colonised the Red Lion next door so you can “set yourself down at the pub and tuck in with more space and vibe”.
3. Kiraku Japanese restaurant in Ealing 8 Station Pde - W5
“Basic café serving Ealing’s Japanese enclave” (situated near Ealing Common tube): “sushi is of high quality, service is warm – even if the surroundings are a little plain – and it’s very reasonably priced: a winner!”
4. Hare & Tortoise Pan-Asian restaurant in Ealing 38 Haven Grn - W5
“Brilliant for a quick pitstop”, these Japanese-inspired pan-Asian canteens consistently churn out “a great selection of fresh and tasty dishes” (sushi, noodles, laksa,…) at an “impressive speed” – you can watch a “gaggle of chefs in action with an array of woks”. Established in 1996, the group has lived up to its name, expanding slowly to six sites while its rivals have proliferated – and, in some cases, crashed and burned.
5. Atari-Ya Japanese restaurant in Ealing 1 Station Pde - W5
Some of “the best (reasonably affordable) sushi in London” can be found at these supermarket/cafés operated by a Japanese food importer. But it’s all about the “fresh and addictive” plates – “service is a bit rough and ready when they’re busy” and the ambience “lacks soul”.
6. Soane's Kitchen British, Modern restaurant in Ealing Pitzhanger Manor, Walpole Park - W5
“A lovely room and outside garden area” – “great on a sunny day” – makes this “a brilliant addition to the west London scene”: the new café in the garden adjacent to Pitzhanger Manor (owned, in days past, by the renowned architect Sir John Soane). But while there’s a “good-value set menu” and an à la carte with something for everyone (“covering veggie/vegan/flexi/typical diets”), some dishes are “expensive and poor”.
7. Five Guys Ealing Burgers, etc restaurant in Ealing 2-3 Central Buildings, The Broadway - W5
“When all you want is an old-school burger”, these US-based arrivals of recent years really “hit the spot” – you can “build your own”, with “tons of accessories”; plus “seriously addictive fries”, “thick milkshakes”, and “more soda flavours than is reasonable”. “The eat-in experience is as depressing as McDonald’s”, though, in fact perhaps more so – “some branches have a strangely gloomy ambience” – but fans feel that “if you don’t mind 1980s-rock, a trip can still be surprisingly fun”.
