Visiting London and Staying in Earl's Court


There is a large choice of restaurants in the Earl's Court area and we have tried many of them so here are our personal recommendations (one or two per style of cuisine). Prices are for a two course meal for one person, including a moderately-priced drink and service. Nearly all these places have menus available for viewing on their websites.


  • Dragon Palace, 207 Earl's Court Road, tel. 020 7370 1461. Cost £25. A busy restaurant on the main road next to the tube station but with excellent cooking. It often looks full, but they can usually find place in their back room for casual visitors. For more information: www


  • Masala Zone, 147 Earls Court Road tel. 020 7373 0220; £20. A modern decor Indian restaurant but with traditional cooking, opposite Earl's Court tube station. Although part of a chain, the quality of cooking is very high. They do an excellent value deal (£10 for two courses excluding drinks) for early diners ordering before 6.30 pm, which can be a good option if you are heading on to the theatre in central London on the tube afterwards. Popular with families. For more information: www
  • Noor Jahan, 2A Bina Gardens, off Old Brompton Road, tel. 020 7373 6522; £25. An excellent Indian restaurant with traditional (English) Indian restaurant decor and cuisine. For more information: www.


  • The Lutong Pinoy is a Filipino restaurant in Kenway Road. It has very simple but tasteful décor and is usually packed with Filipinos. They do an incredible value all-you-can-eat buffet until 8pm every day, £8.50 for adults and £4.50 for kids.


  • The restaurant Cambio de Tercio, 163 Old Brompton Road, tel. 020 7244 8970; £50 and the tapas bar Tendido Cero, 174 Old Brompton road, tel. 020 7370 3685; £30 are two related Spanish restaurants. The restaurant is expensive, but probably the highest quality place in the area. Although the food is excellent, some visitors have complained about the table booking policy where there are two sittings from Thursday to Saturday, and diners at the early sitting can be pressured to finish their meals.

  • The Pembroke, 261 Old Brompton Road, tel. 020 7373 8337l; £30 is a very nice “gastropub” (pub that does high quality cuisine) doing modern European food. Since it gets busy with pub-goers and sports fan (it has several large TV screens devoted to sport) in the evenings at weekends and European football nights (usually Wednesday) we'd recommend it outside of these time if you want a quiet meal. For more information: www.


  • The Troubadour, 263-7 Old Brompton Road, tel. 020 7370 1434; £25. A famous restaurant/music club/wine shop complex and local landmark. The restaurant part has the atmosphere of a French bistro, with simple standard dishes like sausage and mash done to high standards. The downside is that prices are high for what you get, only a limited number of the tables can be booked (the rest are allocated on a first come, first served basis) and the place seems to attract a lot of business people on expenses.

Top End British:

  • Launceston Place, 1a Launceston Place, W8 5RL, 020 7937 6912, £ 60. Located in a very attractive street in Kensington, it is an excellent restaurant which does traditional British dishes with a modern twist. They have a very fair value early dinner menu served at 6.00 or 6.30 p.m. costing £38 (exc. drinks and service). For more information: www.
