Buzzing restaurants
Save

Hi all,

Looking for recommendations please ..

I'm looking for a restaurant with a really good, buzzing atmosphere and noise! - Yes random request!

For 2 adults - a birthday for one of them

Budget is around £150 - we don't drink alcohol

We like most cuisine's, other than Japanese - we also don't like fish :-)

Some of our faves are Indian, Mexican & Italian

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Cafe Pacifico in Covent Garden has long been one of my favourites for a buzzing night out. Great Mexican food and always lively.

There’re used to be somewhere that served drinks in those bone-conduction glasses. That ought to be ‘buzz’ enough for anyone?

I was going to say Sexy Fish too, but post says no fish and no Japanese.

Brasserie Zedel is OK, I'm not crazy about the food, but you'll have enough budget left over for a cocktail in the Bar Americain there.

For Indian maybe Amaya. I haven't been for a while, but it had a good atmosphere. It's expensive but if you don't drink alcohol your budget will go further.

Places with a great buzz

Le Bab

Chick 'n' Sours

Blacklock ( I prefer the Shoreditch location)

There are hundreds of other places with a great buzz but Brasserie Zedel isn't one of them, it's a vast warehouse and the sort of place you would take your out of town relatives. The food is decent at a good price though.

My favourite London Mexican restaurant is Mestizo. Slightly off the tourist trail location wise, but great food and buzzy atmosphere.
