Free Return Taxi Journey With Carrot Cars and 3 other offers

The Gun's riverside setting is worthy enough in itself to deserve a good few comments. But the fruits of its kitchen's labour do some serious battle for attention with the grade II listed building's plush interiors and calming views of London's sparkling waters.

With both plates and interiors that are on fire, Lokhandwala is going to fill up your Instagram with seriously beautiful photos. With an Indian-mansion vibe and Prohibition themes, the Indian restaurant is full of stylish features such as carved shutters and stripped back walls, while dishes are a delicious mix of tapas.

Inamo Covent Garden

200 user reviews 4

When it comes to innovation, few can match Inamo. In fact, few can even get close. This is that place you've heard about where you order via sleek tablets, set your own digital placemats and watch the kitchen in full flight via chef cam. There's no filters required when it comes to the grub either; pan-Asian tapas, sushi and sashimi plates are immaculately presented and come on the side of Oriental themed cocktails.

Served on beautiful floral crockery and presented with the utmost care, this food comes in all shapes, colours and sizes and is sure to please every one of your senses.
