The best Mother's Day events in London
A good one for last-minute plans, Kew's newest exhibition charts British botanist Joseph Hooker discoveries through botanical drawings and has the earliest western illustration of Mount Everest on display. Once you've schooled up on the latin names for daffodils and crocus, you can stroll through the largest display of spring flowers in the country.
Or take mum out for tea and cake
Food is theatre at this Sackville Street teppanyaki restaurant - one of two Benihanas in London (there's another in Chelsea). Meals are played with and prepared on a teppan hot plate at each table, where chefs showcase knife skills, tricks and flicks as they compile a selection of pan-Asian dishes. The menu ranges from appetisers and sushi to miso black cod, tuna grilled in teriyaki sauce, wagyu beef steak and the 'seafood palace' - a combination of lobster, black cod, salmon and scallops. Desserts include green tea ice cream, mango sorbet, ice cream tempura and cheesecake dumplings. Keep an eye out for lunch offers, combination deals and bento boxes, too.
Venue says: “Treat yourself with our special lunchtime menu starting at £5.50 for beef steak curry and new and exclusive teppan ramen for only £7.50!”
