The atmosphere in the restaurant was fantastic, and so was the initial service provided as i was waiting for my friend to arrive. Myself and my friend had ordered the Black cod for mains, i had called over the manager to just let him know that the cod was cold, and to just make sure the chef was informed. Soon... More

The place looks good but the food was disappointing. The beef was not good quality. Overpriced for what we had. They wouldn't order us a taxi saying they had no numbers. Not great news when you are a tourist.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your experience with us. However I can assure you that we only use premier suppliers who's standards of goods are as high as our expectations. We do not work with any mini cab companies hence we do not have any numbers....

We visited for birthday drinks with friends last week, and were pleasantly surprised by the smiling greeting and lovely oriental-style room. I know the bar's in Knightsbridge, but £15+ per cocktail? Thankfully we were there in Happy Hour (half price) but there was no chance of ordering more than one drink as the service was painfully slow. My advice: go... More

On arrival we were porly welcomed outside by a big grumpy doorman on steroids. Just inside a young girl took our coats and we were asked if we would sitt and eat for a long time? So this far in we knew this was not going to be a 5 star experience. What options do we have? 1H 30min, then... More

Buddha Bar is in central Knightsbridge, making it an easy walk from Harrods and other mainstream attractions. We visited for lunch. Food quality is good, but portions are quite small. Wine list provides a good variety, as expected. I guess in this area, you would expect something expensive and amazing. It's not as expensive as the others in the area,... More

A dining experience this is not but rather a means to an end. It is perfunctory in nature. This is a place that provides food. If one has any higher expectation they will be sorely disappointed. Ambiance: There are two levels to this eatery. One that often has live music that provides a nice ambiance and another that has club... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
