If you're cooking up a seafood dinner, this is the place to go to pick up high-quality and reasonably priced fish - way better than the supermarket.

A cracking little Chinese restaurant on a random street, tucked away amongst a number of residential blocks. Great food and it's always full. Good prices too and if you can't be bothered to leave the house, they deliver!

BOKAN

BOKAN

The most elegant place to visit within Canary Wharf, offering a plethora of choice from its wonderful menu is undoubtedly Bokan. This popular restaurant and bar situated over three floors within Marsh wall, offers diners scenic and stunning views of the capital placing it up there as a place to visit for a special occasion or a treat. The sirloin steak, creamy mashed potato, the 'Luna' cocktail, the breath-taking views and the exceptional service make Bokan a go to restaurant to visit if you are ever in the Canary Wharf area. Can hands down say this is the place where they serve the BEST steak in London!! **Top tip - If you book a seat for the restaurant, do ask for one by the window and try to get your table just in time for the sunset so you can enjoy stunning views of the capital whilst further enjoying a gorgeously prepared meal.

The best food at this little hidden gem in London! Great for occasions and loads of specials - the seafood is the best thing they do.

Not just a terminal for Crossrail, but a mecca for restaurants and shopping. There is also a lovely relaxing winter garden.

A great place to go if you are a fan of contemporary Japanese cuisine. Try the "Beef tataki" with smoked cheese, chives and soy roasted almonds - it's amazing and they also offer a very wide selection of premium sake.

Goldstar Dry Cleaners

The masters of getting any stain out and they have always got a trick or two up their sleeve to get them out. 5 shirts for £7.50 is a bargain - and they will even do same day cleaning for the same price!
