Far Rockaway Review

The first thing that struck us about Far Rockaway was its size – it is vast, a mix of low tables, high  tables, little tables, trestle tables, sofas and bars, the next thing we  noticed was just how colourful it was. Every inch is decorated, whether it is graffiti art, skateboards...

Rextail Review

On one of those truly grey nights that only London can produce, Mayfair restaurant Rextail seemed the perfect place for The Handbook to hide out in. Shouldered in between Brown’s hotel and the Royal Arcade on Albermarle Street we headed down a small flight of stairs and into a chicly lit...

Suka Review

Last week The Handbook stepped out of the torrential rain on Berners Street and into the slightly surreal world of Sanderson. We walked through the dazzlingly white Long Bar, past the magical court yard and into Suka – the Malaysian restaurant, the majority of the restaurant is long...

La Porte Des Indes Review

Cutting an unassuming exterior and tucked away from the bustle of Marble Arch stands veteran Indian restaurant La Porte Des Indes. Innocently painted a plain white and looking very inconspicuous, all former expectations of this being a cramped curry house were dropped as we walked into a huge...

Brontё inspired afternoon tea Review

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than having tea at the glorious Gilbert Scott? Without a doubt it is one of my favourite buildings in London: the grandeur, the faded Victorian glamour (it opened in the 1870s) and the rich colours so it only seemed right that we took a little trip...
