About the book:

Glenfiddich "Restaurant Writer of the Year" Charles Campion has eaten his way around London to compile the first Rough Guide to 320 restaurants and pubs around the city. They are arranged by area, so if you happen to be in the Brixton- Camberwell area you could try Helter Skelter's char-grilled calamari with watercress and lime and chilli marinade (£4.80) or if you are in the mood for posh nosh you could try a £50 carte at Chelsea's Gordon Ramsay. There are a total of 47 areas and only the best restaurants and pubs are included. There's no bias in regard to style as Italian, Thai, Chinese and French restaurants are rated equally highly. A map is included at the start of each section showing exactly where the restaurants are situated. Each restaurant has a price guide which shows the minimum amount per person you are likely to spend "assuming you are not a non-tipping, non-drinking skinflint". Each review shows the prices of various dishes and gives the restaurant's opening hours, address, telephone number, and the credit cards accepted. In the introduction, Campion lists his favourite restaurants, which are: Chez Bruce in Wandsworth (British), Fung Shing in Chinatown (Chinese), The Mirabelle in Mafair (French), Café Spice Namaste in the City (Indian), Zafferano in Knightsbridge (Italian), Singapore Garden in Swiss Cottage (Thai), Rasa in Stoke Newington (Vegetarian), Café España in Soho (Budget), Defune in Marylebone (Extavagance), and lunch at Mirabelle (Bargain Extravagance). One of the best things about the book however, is that it's tiny and fit's easily into the smallest briefcase or glove compartment. This will ensure that you always have it with you when find yourself in Southall and suddenly feel hungry. --Dale Kneen
