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.

Piri piri chicken has never looked so good. Based in the heart of London Bridge, this Portuguese-inspired eaterie is adorned with antique furniture and low-hanging leafy botanicals. With an open-plan kitchen, you'll be able to peek at your flame-grilled creations before tucking into a selection of small plates, sides and cocktails at one of the large sharing tables (perfect for that wide-angled 'gram). 

Inamo Covent Garden

281 user reviews 4

Unlimited Asian tapas & sushi with free-flowing wine or beer £42 per person

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.

COCKTAIL HOUR (Mon-Fri 3pm to 6pm) - £5 and 1 other offer

We get that its important to take pretty photos of your food, we do, but there's something so filthy about the food at Dirty Bones that many can't help themselves. From wild cocktails down to some of the biggest burgers in the business, there are plenty of snaps going round.

Chotto Matte

Offering some of the prettiest plates in London, Soho's Chotto Matte's offering of Nikkei dishes are as eye-catching as their interiors. A place that offers Instagram-ready eye-candy from the moment you walk in to the moment you get the bill, if you're looking for some grid-worthy content, this Frith Street eatery has got it all.
