Trip to London (researched)--need help narrowing options

msiangal | Mar 17, 2013 09:06 PM

Hello London Hounds,

My husband and I are planning a trip to London at the end of June and have lots of ideas on places to dine from previous threads on this board. In fact, we have so many ideas we'd like your help narrowing down our list!

We live in the Philadelphia area and are within a 1-hour drive of New York City, so we have access to good ethnic food. For this trip, we'd like to focus on British and Indian food. We'll be staying near the St. James's Park station and would prefer to stay within Zones 1 and 2.

Lunch: Bombay Brasserie brunch buffet
Dinner: Rules

Late breakfast/early lunch: snacking in Chinatown--any recommendations for good bakeries and/or places to get a quick meal of dumplings/buns?
Afternoon tea: Rubens at the Palace or Athenaeum--any opinions on which is better?
Dinner: Masters Superfish or Golden Hind--any opinions on which is better? Should we try both?

Lunch: Cafe Spice Namaste
Dinner: Harwood Arms

Lunch: undecided
Dinner: southern Indian at Trishna or Quilon--any opinons on which is better?

Lunch: snacking at Borough Market
Dinner: undecided

Breakfast before heading to airport: Wolseley

I've read good reviews of Sedap and Bonda Cafe on this board. I'm from Malaysia and am somewhat picky about my Malaysian food! Would either of these be worth going to?

There are so many other restaurants that sound amazing. Among Dinner, The Ledbury, Roganic, and Texture, is there one that we absolutely should try to squeeze in (we considered St. John's, but offal really isn't our thing)?

Thanks in advance for your advice. We'll definitely report back on our trip!
