From Aldwych to Chiswick

Dipna Anand at Somerset House is sister to The Brilliant in Southall. This restaurant offers a much shorter menu than its elder sibling, but in the far grander setting of Somerset House, complete with river views and a terrace overlooking the Thames. I enjoyed the thali offered at lunch, as well as a very good vegetarian dish of thadka greens.
La Trompette in Chiswick has been operating for 22 years now, offering a very appealing menu of French food, the best of which this week was a lovely sweetbread dish. The restaurant has an unusually good and moderately priced wine list, and this combined with an experienced team of front of house staff ensures its continued popularity.
