chinatown london-kung pao chicken

Looking for great food in the heart of London? Look no further than these restaurants in Chinatown that have just been named as 3 of the best places to eat in London.

If you’re struggling with where to eat from the many great places in Chinatown, don’t. Because Timeout have just given you the helping hand you were looking for, naming Baiwei, Shuang Shuang, and The Palomar as 3 of the best restaurants to eat at in London.

If you’re not yet familiar with these top-nosh eateries (see what we did there?) then here’s the lowdown…

chinatown london-baiwei food

Baiwei on Little Newport Street is all about Sichuan, baby. This southwestern province of China is known for serving its food with a side of heat, like Granny’s Stewed Beef with Sweet Potato Noodles. The restaurant itself is relaxed café-style, with Maoist art lining the walls. It’s popular with locals and they’re known for their sense of humour.

Then there’s fancy hot pot place, Shuang Shuang on Shaftesbury Avenue. One step in this place and the heavenly aroma of many broths entangling themselves together will hit your nostrils and make your immediately sit down and demand your dinner. Unlike traditional Chinese hot pots which are shared, this is a one-pot-per-person kind of place. And you choose whatever takes your fancy to pop in your pot as it whizzes by you on the conveyor belt.

chinatown london-palomar

Finally, The Palomar. A place put on the map because of its mouth-watering Israeli menu created by renowned head chef Tomer Amedi. Think tagines, chicken liver paté (Yiddish style), and aubergine (josperised, nonetheless). It’s hugely popular, so best to book. And you’ll find it located on Rupert Street.

Stuck for choice between those three? Well, you’re on your own with that one.
