There’s no decision more panic-inducing than choosing between two dishes at a restaurant. After all, we have one chance to get it right. That is, unless we choose a tasting menu, where delicious dishes are in abundance and downing eight courses is totally acceptable behaviour. Tasting menus are one of the best ways to expand your palette and broaden your horizons to a whole new world of flavour. But unsurprisingly, tasting menus usually come with a hefty price tag to match.

Luckily, there are some London restaurants that keep the cost per person in the double digits. So if, like us, you love nothing more than sitting in a chair for two to three hours, making your way through course after course of incredible food, you’re in luck. From seasonal summer menus starting at just £32, to glamorous Mayfair restaurants offering up surprisingly affordable fare, here’s our pick of London’s best tasting menus that won’t entirely break the bank (but our solid advice is, if you can, always opt for the wine pairing).
