Notting Hill Carnival at London Restaurants
Sunday 28th August - Monday 29th August 2011
Fancy tasting the delights of the Caribbean without leaving the capital? The Notting Hill Carnival has returned for 2011 and is bringing loads of food along with all the usual festival atmosphere. Prepare for two more days of the best in Caribbean and West Indian food and celebrate the Notting Hill Carnival at London restaurants.
Notting Hill Carnival Stalls
From jerk chicken to curried goat and rice and peas, the Notting Hill Carnival is no doubt one of the best places to dig in to the most authentic Caribbean and West Indian food in the capital. Londoners are huge fans of the cuisine; according to festival organisers, each year the carnival goes through a ton of Jamaican patties, 25,000 bottles of rum and 12,000 mangoes.
Reggae Reggae Sauce
One of the capital’s most prominent Caribbean cooks, Levi Roots of Dragons’ Den and Reggae Reggae Sauce fame, will be moving his Papine Jerk Centre out onto the street and serving up his customer’s favourites at his stall on Westbourne Park Road.
In the Area
Not a fan of street food? If you don’t fancy queueing for some jerk chicken whilst watching the parade go by, you can always head to a nearby restaurant. Although some of the venues in the area close down for the carnival, there are still loads of opportunities to celebrate the Notting Hill Carnival at London restaurants. See below for our pick of nearby places.
Mexican favourite Santo on Portobello Road will be open for business on Sunday and Monday, so that revellers can enjoy a line up of top class DJs, as well as beer and finger food.
S and M Cafe
Fill up on hearty fare during the Notting Hill Carnival at London restaurants like the S and M Cafe. The Portobello Road location of the comfort food favourite will be open as usual, although they expect it will be packed so it’s best to call ahead to reserve a table.

Other London Restaurants
Don’t fancy fighting the traffic in West London? You can still celebrate Notting Hill Carnival at London restaurants that aren’t in the area. There are loads of restaurants across the capital where you can sample some Caribbean and West Indian specialties, and even though they might not be involved in the festivities they’re still perfect spots for some tropical food and drink. Nigerian, Chinese and Thai food will also be for sale at the carnival, and you can also sample the same cuisine at restaurants across the capital.
