zafferano 5472 tagliolini with  shaved white truffle-crop-v4.JPG

Zafferano has been around since 1995 and has been a regular haunt of mine since the days of Giorgio Locatelli running the kitchen. These days it no longer has a star, but still serves reliable Italian food, with good pasta and an excellent risotto probably its best dishes. Tagliolini with white truffle (pictured) was lovely. 

Jamavar has a really top-notch Indian chef these days, and produced another superb meal at our latest visit. There were several fine dishes, including a fabulously spiced prawn dish, and over a lengthy tasting menu the standard of cooking was high. For me this is probably the best Indian restaurant in central London at present, along with the recently rejuvenated Benares.
