Input on weekend plans? Mohsen, Bombay Brasserie, Launceston Place plus Liverpool St questions

Hi 'hounds -

Work is taking me to London so we're doing a weekend (Nov. 16-18) en famille - me, the partner, and the 3.5 year old. Staff travel has me staying in South Kensington, which is a nice change from the usual Holiday Inn Express Limehouse...so we're looking to take advantage of our location.

Right now I've got the following in mind:

Mohsen - table booked for Friday night. Howler, any must-order dishes here?

Bombay Brasserie - We've never been to BB (other Indian/Pakistani favourites are Quilon, Moti Mahal and Tayyabs/Lahore Kebab House). From what I read, the lunch buffet is yards above what you get the rest of the week; is it a must-do (especially since we're staying just a few blocks away)?

Launceston Place - either for one of the weekend lunches or maybe a solo dinner Sunday after partner and child head home. Would a relatively well-behaved child be totally out of place here?

Other restaurants in the mix for either Saturday night or Sunday lunch include
NOPI
Bocca di Lupo
Wild Honey
Arbutus

Have been to Bocca di Lupo (with kid) and loved it. Am reading that NOPI is pricey for what you get - thoughts? Between WH and Arbutus, would one be more kid-friendly?

Harwood Arms - solo dinner booked for Monday

Monday and Tuesday lunch - undecided
Will need to stick close to Liverpool St Station. Any recommendations in that area? I might try to drag a colleague to St John Bread & Wine one day, but that would be the outer limit as far as distance. Has anyone been to Tsuru for sushi?

Thanks to all!
