Featured White City Restaurants
1. Copper Chimney Indian restaurant in Shepherd's Bush Southern Terrace, Westfield London, Ariel Way - W12
Founded in 1972 by JK Kapur in 1972 in Bombay, Copper Chimney has become one of India’s biggest culinary success stories, pioneering sophisticated signature Indian dishes as well as introducing the cuisine, culture, and flavours of the sub-continent to Shepherds B...
2. Homeslice Pizza restaurant in Shepherd's Bush 2 Television Centre, 101 Wood Lane White City - W12
2021 Review: “Messy… but so tasty!” – the “best pizzas ever” win nothing but rave reviews for these “easygoing and fun” outlets (backed by the late Terry Wogan’s sons, Mark and Alan), which were out-scored only by the very narrowest margins by Pizza Pilgrims in the last survey as London’s best. “If you like funky topping combos, this is the place for you”.
3. Endo at Rotunda Japanese restaurant in White City, 101 Wood Lane - W12
2021 Review: A “sensational Japanese sushi experience”, “prepared and served by a true entertainer and showman”, wins near-perfect marks for Endo Kazutoshi’s (former sushi chef at Zuma) 16-seat yearling, in the rotunda atop the former BBC Television Centre in White City – nowadays transformed as a huge, glam apartment complex by Nick Jones of Soho House. The venture invites some comparisons with the early days of Mitsuhiro Araki at The Araki, although here the much glossier setting arguably lives up more to the inevitably stratospheric price tag: “a highly informative experience of great intimacy: not cheap, but a lot less than a plane ticket to Japan…”. (On the basis that the comparison with The Araki is warranted, Michelin will likely hand this place two stars in autumn 2019).
4. Pastaio Italian restaurant in Shepherd's Bush Unit 1032, Lower Southern Terrace, Westfield White City - W12
2021 Review: “Amazing fresh pasta that’s great value for central London” has carved a strong following for Stevie Parle’s “loud” and buzzy Kingly Court operation for a “swift”, “cheap ’n’ cheerful” bite.
5. Pizza Pilgrims Pizza restaurant in Hammersmith and Fulham The Balcony, Westfield - W12
2021 Review: “So delicious and affordable every time!” – the Elliot brothers’ “speedy and cheerful” small chain put in a stellar performance in the last survey as London’s top pizza multiple, pipping rival Homeslice by tiny decimals. “You can see the dough being made on entering: everything is very fresh, and you get crisp, thin pizzas with quality toppings”.
6. Bleecker Burger Burgers, etc restaurant in Hammersmith and Fulham The Balcony, Westfield White City - W12
2021 Review: “There is no finer burger in town: end of!” – Zan Kaufman’s tiny group “keeps things simple… and they smash it!”. “If you want mega-stacked, crazy combos, with layers and layers of toppings falling out of the side, there are numerous other (excellent) options in London. But if you want the best patties, made with the best aged beef, un-mucked-about-with and served by a bunch of nice people, then Bleecker is just the best there is”.
7. Bindas Eatery Indian restaurant in Westfield White City - W12
After winning a mentorship in a pop-up competition at Westfield White City Shopping Centre in 2019, Mehak Kansal opened (and subsequently closed, RIP) her first bricks-and-mortar restaurant in swanky Mayfair - but has already opened up again back in Westfield, serving up "epic" Indian street food.
8. Five Guys Westfield Burgers, etc restaurant in White City Lower Mall, Westfield London - W12
2021 Review: “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”.
9. Abu Zaad Syrian restaurant in Shepherd's Bush 29 Uxbridge Rd - W12
2021 Review: “Plentiful and delicious Syrian specialities make it worth trying out this Shepherd’s Bush café”. It has a “slightly unpromising exterior”, but a “superb atmosphere” inside, and it’s “good value too”. “Just go!” – “you won’t be leaving hungry”.
10. Dear Grace British, Modern restaurant in White City 195 Wood Lane - W12
All-day, 350-cover 'small plates and cocktails' site (formerly Wellbourne Brasserie) from the team behind Pergola on the Wharf; opening January 2022.
