Thai Pavilion, 42 Rupert Street, London W1 (020-7287 6333). Daily lunch and dinner. The third floor of this Thai restaurant in Soho is khantok- style - that's with cushions on the floor and a backrest. The room's often taken over for functions, but when it's not, twos and fours can hit the floor and eat pretty good Thai food for around pounds 16 a head.
Momo, 25 Heddon Street, London W1 (020-7434 4040). Daily lunch and dinner. Partly what makes the Moroccan restaurant so painfully fashionable is the low banquettes and seats. Nonetheless the experience of eating here has a heady allure, with intensely aromatic tagines mixing fruit, nuts, spices, meat and fish. All for a price - around pounds 25 for a couple of courses and coffee - that's higher than the usual north African experience, even if the seating is authentically low.
Hi Sushi, 40 Frith Street, London W1 (020-7734 9688). Daily noon- 11pm. Sushi shop at street level, with an underground dining room with coloured- glass tables shaped in retro 1950s style. You sit on the edge of the floor with legs under the tables in a dug-out space. Cheap, cheerful Japanese food covers all bases from sushi for around pounds 10, to a selection of noodles, tempura, and bento boxes for pounds 5-pounds 8, or a greatest hits selection for pounds 12.50.
I am an out and proud floor dweller - can everyone please add to this thread if they know any other London - UK restaurants (any cuisine) where you can be seated on cushions on the floor. Thanks!
