Yes folks, you heard 'em here first, and you heard right, they're scrum.
No list of new London restaurants would be complete without a mention of Din Tai Fung. Notorious globally for their soup dumplings and fast casual dim sum service, this has been a fresh new name in London that has arrived to queues around the block.
Fusion restaurants show no signs of stopping, and Angelina is another newbie to add to your list. Found in the heart of Dalston, this blend of Japanese and Italian cuisine also comes paired with a secret bar that holds less then 10 people.
All things seafood are on the menu at Orasay as the well known Andrew Clarke and chef-restaurateur Jackson Boxer team up to bring London a taste of Scotland and the sea in a smart but equally casual setting on Kensington Park Road.
SpiceBox aren't shy of a following, especially when it comes to their street food, but this year they're celebrating their first brick and mortar site as they take vegan curry dishes to the heart of Walthamstow.
Maremma is all about tradition and inspiration. With a menu inspired by the owner's trip along the Tuscan coastline, newbies to the eatery can expect a delicious wine offering and pasta aplenty (amen to that).
One of the most talked about new openings in the city right now, Lucky Cat is the latest venture from Gordon Ramsay, and it's promising all things asian. Question is, can the Scottish celeb and chef Ben Orpwood deliver on the authenticity?
Great Eastern Street will soon be home to an authentic Italian trattoria as the Big Mamma Group arrive in London, bringing pasta cheese wheels and Capri style along with it for an authentic, Italian dining experience.
The bad boys of pizza have got their first bricks and mortar site, and as one would expect, have added their kooky touch. There's still the charcoal black pizza bases, along with a downstairs absinthe lounge and comic book pages plastered to the ceiling.
Instagram's most famous burgers are now available every darn day as Burger & Beyond opened a restaurant in Shoreditch. It's no fast-food joint either, their first permanent space is smart and cool, with muted charcoal tones and unpolished steel tables, helping you look a little bit more sophisticated as you attempt to wrap your jaws around one of their epic creations.
If you've got cash to flash, then why not try the new Brasserie of Light in Selfridges? A recent opening from the always-outrageous Caprice Holdings, this new restaurant features a specially commissioned Pegasus statue by Damien Hirst and an all-day dining menu, that includes some nifty breakfast choices.
One of Istanbul's most famous restaurants is coming to Soho and promises to be a corker. Yeni will showcase Turkey's flavoursome food options, with the likes of oven-roasted ribs and josper-grilled octopus, alongside floral cocktails.
