What a fantastic meal at Baluchi in London - incredible food on the taster menu. We visited for my husbands 50th and had a wonderful time with Webster and colleagues. So friendly and helpful would definitely recommend.

Beautiful food in a stunning setting. The black daal is so rich and delicious. The octopus is amazing and the bloody mahdavi cocktail was a perfect start to Sunday lunch! I have been twice and will be back again soon.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
