Pond Dalston Dip Your Toes Into Tasty Hawaiian Waters
Stamford Works 3 Gillett Street, Dalston, London, N16 8JH

What they say:

Distinguished restaurateur Byron Knight injects a dose of the exotic into Dalston with his latest venture. Pond is London's first restaurant dedicated to New Hawaiian cuisine, aiming to knock our socks off with an irresistible fusion of Hawaiian traditions and ingredients with European cooking methods. Cocktails are suitably tropical, challenging our clichéd views of Tiki drinks in favour of bold and exciting new concoctions.

What we say:

Forget everything you know about Hawaiian cuisine, Pond are set to introduce you to a whole new world of Central Pacific wonderment. It's something of a hidden gem; tucked away in a warehouse down a private lane in Dalston, and sample dishes like the Whole Catfish with Citrus Ponzo washed down with innovative cocktails confirms that this is far from your ordinary eatery.
