The Best Tasting Menus
Sometimes you just want to go to a restaurant and forget about what it might cost you. Well, if you’re either reckless or rich, that is. The best tasting menus enable you to do just that, and whilst most are excruciatingly expensive, others are actually surprisingly affordable. Whichever you choose, though, the best tasting menus offer you the chance to enjoy the very best dishes and the very best indicator of what a restaurant is all about – and of course the unadulterated joy of being lavishly, grotesquely greedy.
sketch Lecture Room and Library
9 Conduit Street, Mayfair, London, W1S 2XG
Quite apart from the fact that you get to walk through much of Sketch’s incredible innards, The Lecture Room’s tasting menu is second to none in London thanks to Pierre Gagnaire’s very fine handiwork in the kitchen. A vegetarian tasting menu comes in at £75 for six courses but the standard tasting menu (£95 for six) really is impressive, finished off by a sublime combination of Gagnaire’s five best desserts. Prepare to be wheeled out.

Alyn Williams at The Westbury
The Westbury, Bond Street, Mayfair, London, W1S 2YF
The vegetarian a la carte menu deservedly gets quite a few plaudits at this place but the tasting menu should do too. Not only is it excellent value (£55 for seven courses), the dishes are sublime with Alyn Williams showcasing his natural skill in combining superb bits of produce simply, and very well indeed.

34 Portman Street, Marylebone, London, W1H 7BY
This brilliant Michelin starred venue is influencing some of the best restaurants in the business, and its excellent tasting menus showcase exactly why. A Scandinavian version is brilliantly light but it’s the seven courser at £79 that’s the one to go for, with a selection of seasonal dishes that give a very good account of just why this place is so very well regarded.

Namaaste Kitchen
64 Parkway, Camden, London, NW1 7AH
Some food folk might not like Namaaste Kitchen’s inclusion on our best tasting menu but we stick by it purely thanks to its excellent value. Don’t bother with the matching wines (they don’t) and plump instead for a bottle of your choice alongside the six course tasting menu that comes in at just £24 per person. You might not be getting Michelin starred food but for surprisingly impressive Indian fare this is a very good bet indeed.

Odette's
130 Regents Park Road, Primrose Hill, London, NW1 8XL
This longstanding Primrose Hill restaurant had new life breathed into it when Bryn Williams took it over in 2006. The excellent Welsh chef has put his very tasty stamp on it – something that’s evident in a brilliant tasting menu that comes in at a very reasonable £50 per person, and features the very dish he served for the Queen for her 80th birthday – roast turbot with braised oxtail, cockles and samphire.
