Regina Margherita Restaurant – London, UK

I was staying at the Hilton London Islington and was due to meet a friend for dinner in one of the restaurants near the hotel.  We hadn’t decided which and I left the hotel a little early with the intention of having a glass of wine while waiting for my dinner companion.

I found this restaurant only 3 doors along Upper Street from the hotel and noticed that they had a Taste sticker in the window (A Taste Card allows 50% off food, 241 deals etc throughout the UK. For more info click here).  Being a sucker for promotions in I went.

Sen Nin Restaurant – London, UK

I am a bit of a girl when it comes to food.  Perhaps I should say I used to be a bit of a girl when it comes to food.  I am not saying that girls and bad; it’s more of a saying, like Yorkie bars.

A client booked Sen Nin for dinner and I was given the three – line party whip; you will go and have fun…  I was more than a little scared.  I was told that the restaurant was a Sushi establishment and no matter how many times I try, I just don’t do Sushi.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it is actually a Teppanyaki restaurant.

Imli Restaurant – London, UK

I had booked a combo at which gave tickets to a West End show AND dinner for £20.  Imli was described as Indian Tapas restaurant and included in my deal I got three courses.   The tickets for the show should have cost more than £20 alone so I wasn’t really expecting much but thought I’d give it a go.

Imli is on Wardour Street in Soho which has a number of boutique stores (along with more than a few chain stores) and a large number of gay bars (not gay bar in a cool and trendy way; think tacky)

I arrived at Imli around 6pm on a Tuesday.  I wasn’t expecting the restaurant to be very busy however this is the heart of Theatre land and almost every eatery has a Pre–Theatre deal on.  Imli was of course, no exception and I was surprised to find the restaurant about three quarters full.

Best Western CDG Restaurant


We had a voucher for 25 EUR and I has been informed (by TEO, see review of hotel for more on this) that this amount could be spent how I pleased; naturally this was not the case.

There was a hot buffet which was (interestingly enough) 25 EUR.  I gave the eldest JTF (Junior Travel Freak) this; he easts everything and as I age I become more fussy.  I opted for some pasta (allegedly in a four cheese sauce) and Mrs TF had more pasta (in a tomato sauce).  The younger JTFs were jet lagged and frankly not themselves.  We ordered one kids meal and some extra chips (what can I say other than we had been in the US for too long; fries are habit forming…)
