Given the fact that Hammersmith is a major travel hub, it is unsurprising that you can explore the culinary world in a day with the area's restaurants. They feature a wide range of cuisines, from Keralite food (from an area in southern India) at Shilpa and eclectic vegetarian fare of The Gate to Saigon Saigon's Vietnamese and Polanka's Polish menus. Perhaps more surprising is how well priced it all is.

Crabtree

Situated on a fine stretch of the riverbank between Hammersmith and Putney bridges, this vast Victorian venue is within shouting distance of Craven Cottage, the homely home of Fulham Football Club.

The Gate

icon-location-pin Hammersmith

When this much-loved vegetarian institution closed for refurbishment and didn’t reopen for more than a year, many loyal diners were mourning – but then perked up when its younger sibling opened in Islington.

Potli

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

With its beach-style wooden bar, hessian cushions, beads, and quirky curios, Potli has a tropical street-bazaar vibe. Local residents visit for the classic curries and smoky grills.

River Café

Despite its reputation for exclusivity, it’s possible to get a table at the River Café with just a couple of hours’ notice if you choose your moment.

Shilpa

Don’t be put-off by the no-frills decor, Shilpa quietly goes about its business of putting speciality Keralite cooking on tables at surprisingly low prices.

Carpenter's Arms

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

But for the tables outside, you might think that this was a shop. But a pub it is, and a popular one at that: head here on a Friday evening, and you’ll probably find ‘reserved’ signs everywhere.

Cumberland Arms

icon-location-pin West Kensington

Flower-filled exterior aside, there’s nothing fancy about this local favourite. From the well-worn furniture to the order-at-the-bar chalkboard menu, it’s all very familiar.

Hampshire Hog

icon-location-pin Hammersmith

The Hampshire Hog in Hammersmith sounds like the start of a tortuous tongue-twister, but it’s actually a ‘pub and pantry’, run by the team behind the Engineer gastropub in Primrose Hill.

Restaurants, Lebanese

Mes Amis

icon-location-pin Fulham

It's on the same road as the River Cafe – another Hammersmith dining institution – but this tiny, one-room neighbourhood Lebanese restaurant couldn’t be more different.

Restaurants, Vietnamese

Saigon Saigon

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

West London is something of a desert for Vietnamese food, but this roomy, fairly smart place near Ravenscourt Park more than makes amends.

Restaurants, Japanese

Tosa

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

Locals don’t come to Tosa for the sparkling setting – the dining room seems just a little lacklustre. Instead, friendly service and a decent range of sushi and skewers are the main draw.

Restaurants, Thai

101 Thai Kitchen

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

As is the case in many of London’s most authentic Thai restaurants, the cooking here is largely from the Esarn region of north-eastern Thailand.

Kerbisher & Malt

icon-location-pin Brook Green

Perched at the zenith of London-based fish and chippery, Kerbisher & Malt works within pretty tight strictures.

Knaypa

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

West London’s Polish community is well served by restaurants purveying hearty soul food at reasonable prices, with Knaypa being a prime example.

Lola & Simon

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

Just south of Ravenscourt Park, Kirsten and Nico (the café is named after their dogs), serve breakfasts, lunches and dinners that have been satisfying locals since 2007.

Restaurants, Iranian

Mahdi

icon-location-pin Ravenscourt Park

Many Iranian restaurants strive to emulate the informality of the dinner parties at which so much of their nation’s cuisine is served. Not so with Mahdi, a sprawling space.

Sagar

icon-location-pin Hammersmith

Behind its plain plate-glass frontage, Hammersmith’s Sagar (there are two other branches) is almost Scandinavian in its use of blond wood.

The Village

icon-location-pin Hammersmith

There’s something of the community centre about this basement restaurant – it’s a little shabby, with workaday furniture, sauces served in polystyrene cups and an easy-clean tiled floor.
