We know that you might prefer tasting traditional English meals during your trip. But before starting the long list of Fish and Chips or English breakfast restaurants, we would like to present the big variety of food in London.


Indian food


Indian gastronomy came along with migration and we have to say it has been the best thing that could ever happen to London. You can find Indian restaurants everywhere across the town, but here at LolaandGeorge, we will recommend you the best places.

You may have heard of The Sitara, a cozy restaurant located on Holloway Road. This amazing restaurant will offer you real Indian dishes for meat lovers or vegetarians. The jazzy atmosphere will conquer you as you lunch or dinner.

If you like generous dishes full of flavors, we recommend Indian Express in West Kensington. This restaurant is perfect for mid-range purses. The place is rather small but clean and friendly.

Last but not least, the Jaipur of Chigwell in Woodford Green offers fine Indian food from mid-range to expensive prices.  The restaurant offers exceptional dishes adapting to your taste and desires. Moreover, the excellent service assures you a beautiful time while enjoying your meal.




If you’re in search of discoveries, you might wish to take yourself to some curious and known restaurants in London.

We highly recommend COYA, an award-winning brand offering Latin American culture along with delicious dishes and drinks.  In London, you can find 2 restaurants, one located in Mayfair while the second is in Angel Court. You can find a Pisco Lounge which offers a wide variety of Pisco infusions, cocktails, tequilas and rums. The music played will transport you to the large variety of Latin American countries. You can also access a Party Brunch every Saturday from 12 pm to 4 pm for 65£ for an alcoholic package or 50£ for the normal one. You have an open bar in the Pisco lounge until 1:30 pm and access brunch and entertainment right after.

For mid-range to affordable prices, you can consider Sabor Peruano. The restaurant is located in Elephant & Castle and serves Peruvian specialties on generous portion sizes. The price-quality ratio is really good as the service is really good.

The Butifarra is a Spanish/Latin restaurant serving tapas and Peruvian food combinations. It is located on Rupert Street which makes it easily reachable. The prices are low and the cuisine is amazing, what else could we expect from a restaurant? We advise you to take the beef with anticucho or their fresh mixto special ceviche.




For traditional and authentic British food, we recommend The Golden Chippy. It is a really cheap but delicious restaurant that serves fish and chips, of course, but also, pies, fried chicken and jacket potatoes. The price-quality is excellent and the service just as perfect. The restaurant is located on Greenwich High Road, don’t hesitate to go around and take a look.

In the same register, Fishers Fish and Chips (Fulham High Street) offer good dishes for affordable prices.  Different sorts of fishes are served with chips, as well as other dishes such as Angus Beef Burgers or scampi. Again the price-quality ratio is excellent, so if you want to do some economies go and take a look at this amazing place.

For an authentic cadre, we recommend The Foyer at Claridge’s in Mayfer. The price is rather high but the service and food quality makes the price-quality ratio excellent. Make sure you make a reservation previous to your visit as the place is also a hotel and it is highly demanded.
