    Anyone been to this place called Story? It looks pretty swanky but it's my birthday coming up...

    I got family staying the night in a hotel near London Airport on Monday Night - any idea where to take them for some decent food. Rather not take them too far, and preferably not any further east - I guess this means Canning Town, as I doubt Canary Wharf has anything. Any tips appreciated.

    Funny enough, Canary Wharf has one of the best Cantonese restaurants in London, the Royal China

    It's pricier than your usual, but definitely worth it. If they're doing dim sum, it's the best in London. Also order the char siu.

    Down the road at the Xcel is Caribbean Scene

    Jamaican restaurant where the food is reaaaaaally good. Reaaaaaaally good.

    They can be a bit....weird if not downright rude on the door though so be prepared for that and it wont piss you off.

    Had a quick look at the menu for the Royal China - looks good and quite reasonable.

    I went to Yipin China on Liverpool Road, Islington last weekend. Hunanese/Sichuan place. It looked really good, but very disappointing, wouldn't recommend (the pork with green peppers was fairly good tho, to be fair). Does anyone know if Ba Shan in Soho is any good?

    Ba Shan is reliably good - it's not, erm, lifechanging but it's very high standard. It's the one we take people who havent had mainland food before to, as it's clean and not too scary. Ba Shu used to be good apparently but the chef left to open his place (his one is the one just off Brick Lane, forget the name, which is kinda a bit high food for me). Ba Shan definitely worth a pop though, once at least. My favourite round there is New China on Gerrard Street which is FEROCIOUS in its heat, the dan dan noodles will make you cry.

    hmm, I'm not very good with that level of heat...

    May give Ba Shan a go - still looking for an affordable Sichuanese or Hunanese restaurant (well, more any that isn't straight up Cantonese) in London that can match Chili Cool

    Any recommendations for lunch on Sunday near Kings Cross / the British Museum? Preferably fairly cheap, straightforward and informal (ie probably pub or cafe), disabled access would be good.

    Cheers!

    The Norfolk Arms is good for tapas, it can be busy though. It has private dining but that is upstairs which won't be disabled access :

    and opposite that, you've got seriously good Chinese in Chilli Cool, and wicked but very expensive fish and chips at the North Sea (silly expensive to eat in, reasonable if you take away and sit in Bloomsbury Square or wherever. Get the mushy peas. I hate mushy peas but their ones are magic.)

    Getting back to Chilli Cool is on my to do list every time I'm down in London, and despite it being really convenient for Kings Cross, it keeps not happening. Next time...

    We went to the Holborn Whippet in the end, which was pretty decent.
