Tayyabs
83-89 Fieldgate Street, Whitechapel, London, E1 1JU
The quintessential London restaurant for large groups, this superb Whitechapel venue regularly plays host to groups keen to sample some of the best Pakistani cuisine the capital has to offer. You'll definitely need to book, but restaurants for large groups really don't come much better than here.

Hawksmoor Guildhall
10 Basinghall Street, City, London, EC2V 5BQ
Of all the Hawksmoors, this is the best restaurant for large groups, not only thanks to a layout that is very conducive to groups (the big booths especially), but thanks to a gorgeous private dining room that makes your and your group feel very VIP indeed.

Michael Nadra Primrose Hill
42 Gloucester Avenue, Primrose Hill, London, NW1 8JD
The sheer flexibility of this place makes it one of the best restaurants for large groups. You can hire various areas (the gorgeous garden included), or simply book a large table. Either way, head for the very atmospheric, subterranean, Grade II listed 'horse tunnel', with its cobbled floor and close, arching roof of exposed brickwork.

Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant
137 Fortess Road, Kentish Town, London, NW5 2HR
One of the best Ethiopian restaurants in London is also one of the best restaurants for large groups. Service can be a bit hit and miss but if you can secure a section upstairs then this place is brilliant. Bonkers, dusty decor that feels like a museum is the perfect setting for some great Ethiopian food.

Bread Street Kitchen
One New Change, 10 Bread Street, St Paul's, London, EC4M 9AJ
Gordon Ramsay's One New Change restaurant is so vast that it has to make this list. It is huge, but the design is so well done that there are plenty of smaller areas making up the whole, enabling large groups to make one of them their own before getting stuck into what's a pretty good, if pricey, menu.

aqua nueva
240 Regent Street (entrance 30 Argyll St), Soho, London, W1B 3BR
This place might have pretensions above its Soho station but it's brilliant for large groups. The long banquettes are perfect if there's a load of you; there's a lovely outside area for a few post-prandial drinks; and there's always a bit of a party vibe - perfect for large groups looking for a bit of fun.

LayaLina
2-3 Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge, London, SW3 1NG
The upstairs of this quality Lebanese restaurant in Knightsbridge is far too tight for large groups. However, head downstairs (where the belly dancing takes place) and feast on some very tasty fare with loads of your pals.

Pizza East
56 Shoreditch High Street, Shoreditch, London, E1 6JJ
The food at this Shoreditch hot spot is always worth sampling, but it also happens to be without a doubt one of the best restaurants for large groups. It's housed within the old Tea Building, so has plenty of space for plenty of people. Just take note: you'll need to book up really, really early.
