The Best Restaurant Districts In London

London is well known for being one of the best cities in the world for food. As a fusion of international influences itself, the city is awash with food markets, wholesale ingredients sellers and Michelin star cuisine from all across the world. Put simply, the UK capital is a foodies dream and there’s no doubt that any guest at the Park Avenue J Hotel and other central London accommodation will want to get a taste for themselves.

With so many stellar restaurants and eateries in London, it’s hard to pick the best, so this blog will focus on providing tourists with the best districts in London for dining. From Afternoon Tea hotels to street food paradise, these are the best areas in the city to grab a bite.


As a Central London nightlife hotspot, it’s unsurprising that Soho is so great for eating out and for so many different moods as well. Whether Japanese pulled pork extraordinaire BAO or Patty&Bun for world-class burgers, there are plenty of casual no-reservation spots in this buzzing West End district. That’s before we even get on to Chinatown which, you guessed it, offers the best Chinese cuisine for guests at Central London hotels such as the Park Avenue Hyde Park. You better visit with an empty stomach though, many of the Chinese restaurants incorporate all-you-can-eat buffet menus that are open late into the night - the perfect alcohol soaker after a night on the town.


Known for its hip clubs and trendy locals, Dalston is also a food junkies dream - more specifically kebab and pizza lovers. Authentic Turkish restaurants really pull out the stops along Kingsland Road whilst food vans and New York-style pizza takeaways stay open late into the night.


Jerk chicken, enchiladas and everything in between is the name of the game in Peckham. The casual eateries along Peckham High Street make for a great weekend refuel whilst the gourmet Thai Food at the Begging Bowl has a huge following too.


Brixton’s indoor market has paved the way for much homegrown foodie talent. Amidst the vintage clothes and homeware stalls, you’ll find delectable plates of pasta, thin-crust pizzas and Japanese cuisine for a fraction of the central London price. Further to the Village Market, you’ll find nightlife hotspot and container-clad Pop Brixton, where street food and craft beer go hand in hand. Just be careful to spill either whilst boogying to the late-night DJ sets!


Guests at accommodation near Hyde Park London and much of northwest central have probably heard of Camden through its affiliation with punk, art and musicians such as Amy Winehouse. Nowadays, however, amidst the vintage clothes stalls, you’ll not only find souvenir tidbits but out-of-this-world ice cream vendors Chin Chin Labs. If you want something a little warmer on your plate than nitrogen blasted ice cream, then street food gang KERB have you covered with their West Yard curation of the best street food vendors in the city.

Notting Hill

For something a little classier than the previous collections of street food, Notting Hill’s collection of restaurants are elegant yet approachable. Standouts include the Ledbury who serve three-course feasts that include oysters, gruyere and truffle on toast and delicate monkfish. Other restaurants include Granger & Co Notting Hill for ricotta hotcakes and all-day breakfasts at the Electric Diner.
