My favourite restaurants in London

Feeling excited for my first post. However, I would like to share my experience. I am a big lover of traveling and try not to miss every opportunity. My last visit was to London. Here I have listed the 3 restaurants that I loved the most.
For breakfast try Dishoom. I enjoed the calm atmosphere as well as the nice breakfast they serve.
I love sushi so visited Sushisamba London and liked a lot their sushi. TRy out when there.
And for dinner, I tried San Carlo Cicchetti for a good italian restaurant. From hete I found those restaurants: 
 
Hope you also like them .

It may be "spam" but I do agree with Elina's post regarding Cicchettihttp://www.sancarlocicchetti.co.uk/
 
We always go to the one in Piccadilly.  It is right in the heart of the tourist district, but very authentic Italian "small plates," and excellent quality.   Unusual pastas, pizzas, vegetables, charcuterie, cheeses, seafood, etc.  Good wine list, including wines by the glass.
 
It is not cheap -- the bill adds up quickly if you try a variety of things. 
 
But it is a wonderful place for lunch or before-theater dining.

Oh, wow.  I could write a book. 
My husband is of Italian extraction, so we tend to eat a lot of Italian food.  
In Chelsea, tucked on a side street off King's Road, is La Delizia.  I discovered it years ago when I was teaching in London for the summer.  Open all day into the evening, it has excellent pizza, pasta and seafood specials. Very Italian and "roadfood-y" (for London).  It's small and so we like to go at off-hours. http://www.ladelizia.org.uk/
Last year, we had Christmas Day luncheon at Rivea in the Bulgari Hotel.  Very upscale, but the food was absolutely superb, as was the service. http://rivealondon.com/
My favorite Indian place is in Hammersmith.  It's called Indian Zing.  It is just around the corner from the Ravenscourt Park tube station.  http://indian-zing.co.uk/   Menu has all the standards, but also they serve unique seasonal dishes, like wild boar.
In Richmond (near the tube/train station and the Orange Tree theatre, so we go for pre-theatre dinner), we love La Buvette for classic French food. Small menu, but very well-prepared -- had the best duck confit  that I've ever eaten as a daily special. http://www.labuvette.co.uk/
Back in London near Piccadilly, we are quite taken with the Art Deco-themed Zedel. Another great all-day dining brasserie, and a fun atmosphere. Delicious cassoulet (as a daily special), roast chicken, oysters, and several varieties of choucroute. There's also a delightful small "Bar Americain" on the premises. The same operators have other properties in London, but this is (in my opinion) far and away the best, and the nicest in terms of staff/service.
https://www.brasseriezedel.com/
We continue to enjoy Rules, for the atmosphere (always) and for the British food -- up to a point. Order carefully and seek guidance from your waiter about what's good that day. In the fall and winter, wild game and fowl, from their own estate, is outstanding. http://rules.co.uk/menu/
A sleeper -- the cafeteria on the top floor of the Art Deco Peter Jones department store (in Chelsea) has excellent salads and sandwiches -- and real Coca-Cola in small glass bottles.  https://www.johnlewis.com/our-shops/peter-jones  Don't miss the spectacular staircase!
It's probably not to everyone's taste (they attract a young crowd), but we enjoy having Sunday morning breakfast (before we go to church at one of the nearby historic Anglican churches) or a drink before a concert at Cadogan Hall, at The Botanist in Sloane Square.  It's currently closed for renovations, but is supposed to reopen in October. http://www.thebotanistonsloanesquare.com/
Very, very good Polish food (we love the roast duck with apples, the pierogi, and the chicken soup, not to mention the flavored vodkas) at Daquise in South Kensington, which has been there since just after WWII.  Small and friendly, but if you want the duck, you have to come at dinnertime.  http://daquise.co.uk/
For Chinese: my favorite place in Chinatown, Fung Shing,  closed years ago.  I used to enjoy dim sum (order from the menu) at Dragon Castle near Elephant & Castle tube station, but I haven't been there for some time and it is getting mixed reviews on line. https://www.dragoncastlelondon.com/
For Nepalese food, Great Nepalese near King's Cross/Euston stations. https://www.great-nepalese.com/
For delicious hot chocolate (literally - not cocoa), ladled to order into tiny cups out of big vats of melted chocolate, Said in Soho.  http://said.it/en/london/
For wonderful chocolates and other confections, Artisan du Chocolat. They have a number of branches; we always go to the one on Lower Sloane Street. https://www.artisanduchocolat.com/
For pastries, Konditor & Cook.  I love their "magic cakes," which are lemon-scented petit fours, which often have a theme (summertime includes Wimbledon-inspired icing designs; Christmastime is, well, Christmas-y)  They have a number of locations; we usually go to the one near  Waterloo station.

Any other requests?

We lived in London for almost 20 years. Most of the places we frequented are long gone now.
However, Y'all must eat dinner at Daquise. The absolute best Polish food outside of Poland.
If you go in the fall, have their wild mushroom ragu. I'ts unbelievable! And yes, have the duck!
We used to walk to Daquise from our flat on Sloane Ave. I should add, when it wasn't raining.
Great Chinese restaurants on Queensway. Across the park. And eat Indian anywhere. It's the best food in London.
And be sure you don't miss tea at Fortnum & Mason. IMHO, the best in London.
