This Stables Market restaurant and bar is pretty well known - it briefly flirted with being the place to be seen a few years ago, and it still proves a popular spot for many hitting town for a night out. The intricately extravagant interior - a bold homage to Babylonia - helps it retain some of its early-days glamour.
Despite the decor, the food focuses on pan-Asian crowd-pleasers. Dishes range from dim sum, sushi, and salads of crispy duck and watermelon to soft-shell crab tempura, beef bulgogi, Thai green curry, five-spiced baby chicken and steamed red snapper in a Szechuan broth with bok choy and edamame. Sirloin of wagyu beef, served with three sauces, provides an extravagant option.
There's plenty of scope to shell out on the wine list too, though some are available by the glass and there are a few bottles priced between £25 and £30. Classic and signature cocktails prove popular.
