Just a stone's throw from Harrods, Layalina is open every day of the week from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., evenings here come alive with music and belly dancing, reflecting the typical verve and zest of traditional Lebanese culture.

The restaurant's executive head chef Joseph Chahine comes with nearly thirty years of experience and is highly acclaimed for his culinary skills. His extensive menu delivers a flavourful variety of dishes combining creativity with traditional culinary techniques. The mezze selection includes cold, hot and tartar dishes with choices of hummus, tabouleh, stuffed vine leaves, prime fish fillet topped with herbs and pine nuts and served with a spicy tomato salsa, crispy cheese filo and kafta nayeh - a traditional dish of minced lamb tartar mixed with parsley, onion and fresh spices.

A delicious beginning to the meal is followed by sumptuous vegetarian, fish, chicken or lamb main courses. Vegetarian options include artichoke heart stew of grilled artichoke, flavoured with olive oil, spinach mushroom, white cheese, onion and garlic. While fish dishes include roast fish, a classic Lebanese fisherman?s dish with prime fish-of-the-day served on a bed of seasoned rice with a fragrant glaze. Meat dishes include the house speciality of LayaLina lamb, slow cooked fall-of-the-bone lamb leg served with mushroom and rice of the day, or chicken taouk - a traditional  shish kebab of marinated chicken pieces, char grilled and served with roasted vegetables and garlic sauce could be equally satisfying.
 
No Lebanese meal is complete without a salad and choices here include fatoush, a mixed leaf salad with tomatoes, sumac, cucumber and roasted bread croutons, or a seafood salad with prawns, pickled calamari, anchovy fillets, mixed leaves and tomatoes, flavoured with green sauce, cheese and virgin olive and garnished with roast almonds.

The grilled selection offers marinated lamb cutlets with bouquet of wild herbs and mustard served with Lebanese couscous, or succulent fillet steak, and seasoned beef fillet grilled and served with mushroom sauce on a bed of asparagus, vegetables and flavoured rice. Sides of traditional bread, steamed rice cooked with minced lamb onions, pine nuts and Arabian spices, and thick cut potato chips served with homemade salsa or Lebanese pickles complement your main course dish.

Elaborate confections of baked fresh pears served with ice cream and mohalabiyah, cheese honey - a dessert dish of steamed cheese with semolina and honey, topped with ashta and syrup and sprinkled with crushed pistachio, and aish al saraya, homemade crispy dough cooked with honey, topped with cheese, banana and pistachio make for tempting desserts.

Chutney Mary in the Kings Road, Chelsea, started out life in 1990 and has never looked back. Perhaps this is a comment on the British attitudes to Indian cuisine, and curry in particular, for when the late Robin Cook made his 'chicken tikka masala' observation he was not far wrong, and in an age when multiculturalism is fashionable we could do a lot worse than concentrate on exchanges of culinary traditions.

Chutney Mary in the Kings Road, Chelsea, started out life in 1990 and has never looked back. Perhaps this is a comment on the British attitudes to Indian cuisine, and curry in particular, for when the late Robin Cook made his 'chicken tikka masala' observation he was not far wrong, and in an age when multiculturalism is fashionable we could do a lot worse than concentrate on exchanges of culinary traditions. Their colourful Website is a mine of information and well worth a regular browse.

From the outset Chutney Mary has been picking up the gongs, and deservedly so. In 2002 a major transformation took place, bringing the restaurant even more into the London mainstream, and the awards continued to flow, including Best Modern Indian Restaurant in London for 2003 and 2004.

Fay Maschler, writing in the Evening Standard remarked "Not so much Bollywood as jolly, jolly good", and if, as one suspects, she was referring to the décor as well as the food she could hardly be more right.

The approach to food here is to combine traditional Indian recipes with the contemporary ways that food is going in India, presenting refined Indian cooking at its very best. The emphasis on seafood will be welcome to many who wonder why more conventional Indian restaurants have so little on the menu, particularly with a coastline that extends so far.

Tapas have their Indian counterpart in kebabs, and breads, always a hot number if you'll pardon the pun, have the attention of those who would extend their range. Starters at Chutney Mary could include a real artisan soup, spiced seafood of great delicacy, a well presented chaat and flavoursome kebabs. There is no hesitation here in using the ingredients and produce of the country such as game, and applying Indian cooking techniques and adapted recipes. Prices start at £6.25 up to £9.50, with more for lobster.

Main courses cover the whole range of cooking techniques and produce, including game. Prices range from £15.50 to £22.50, amongst which poultry, lamb sourced from Devon and seafood feature prominently. If there is one country in which vegetarians get a really square deal it must surely be India, and at Chutney Mary there is a choice of two platters, one of which is a traditional North Indian composition of vegetables and daal.

A more modern approach comes in the form of seven mini-dishes such as stir-fried banana flower with coconut, baby courgette masala, okra and water chestnut combined into one platter. Indian food is by nature colourful, though to look at some of the dishes served elsewhere the colour element has been lost to a universal Windsor brown occasionally alleviated by a touch of turmeric or the flash of a chilli defying the colour ban.

Chutney Mary are to be lauded for helping to put to flight the universal assumption that Indian food is worthy only of pints of indigestible lager, or CAMRA approved ales whose own flavours tend to be submerged in a flood of curry.

Wine is taken seriously, aided by an input from Matthew Jukes, the writer on wine, to whom the buying of wine is no great hardship. Their attitude to wine can be clearly seen in the glassed-in, temperature controlled wine room. Some of the fruits of his labours are to be seen there and be found in a wine list that has attracted warm support, particularly the helpful annotations.

The advent of a new breed of steakhouses has caught the attention of those seeking a full-on bovine treat, but the rest are not disappointed either, thanks to places like Kings Road Steakhouse and Grill that effortlessly cater to the needs of both meat and seafood lovers. Here it's more than just that, the interior catches the eye with a touch of elegance, a far cry from the rustic traits that usually characterise a steakhouse.

The à la carte might deliver half a dozen Whitstable oysters, dressed Cornish crab and slow roasted pork belly. Then move on to meatier pursuits with an 8oz fillet, a 16oz T-bone or a 10oz rib eye on the bone, all made from fine quality Scottish beef; the addition of grilled and roast meats such as spatchcock poussin and chipolatas and calves liver and dry cured bacon could stretch your choice even further. Desserts feature the much loved sticky toffee pudding and Eton mess.

Fully refurbished in January, DA SPAGO invokes the true sense of Italy, first by making diners feel at home with a real Italian family, who run the place, and then by serving up meals that have all the precision and freshness that one looks for in a Mediterranean meal.

All pizzas are made fresh each day, hand stretched and cooked in the wood oven, and the metre long pizza deserves a special mention, appearing as it does with a riot of condiments like mozzarella, ham, mushrooms, fried aubergines, ricotta cheese, rocket and parmesan flakes. Other dishes in the carte also demonstrate natural flavours in a big way, from the thin sliced octopus with fresh citronette dressing and rocket salad, followed by the spaghetti with clams, white wine and chilli to the chicken breast with asparagus and speck in soft parmesan stuffing.

DA SPAGO is constantly brimming with activity as there are live sporting events screened in the basement and music nights in keeping with the restaurant's Italian atmosphere.

We say Modern American, and somehow one tends to assume that everything that comes out of America is modern.

We say Modern American, and somehow one tends to assume that everything that comes out of America is modern. But PJ's Bar and Grill has more than a touch of tradition about it and old fashioned might be a better description, though there's nothing creaky about the service and atmosphere which is well up to date.

Their long established record for providing the ultimate location in which to enjoy a weekend brunch in the South Kensington area remains unblemished. But for most the target is more likely to be a good evening meal over which to celebrate some event, however trifling, irrelevant even.

So after absorbing some rocket fuel in the form of a selection from their list of cocktails, amongst which the infamous Sazerac is supreme, you will be in better shape to take an inspired shot at choosing from the menu which has embraced the English culinary genre with commendable skill.

Stilton cheese is many a gourmet's delight, but the insiders will tell you that the Colston Bassett variety has that special something which sets it apart. One of life's little delights is a tuna tartare, served with avocado salsa and shredded spring onions, each an ideal foil to the other, and here they have it off to perfection

On then to the main event where a whole sea bass arrives char-grilled and shares plate with plum tomato, red onion and fennel salad.

The spring lamb with minted potatoes, braised baby gem, rosemary and anchovy dressing lingers fondly on the palate, but for many a 28 day aged premium 10oz rib eye steak provides the highlight of the evening.

Side dishes, which some tend to avoid through sheer boredom, are made exciting and it's all too easy to get carried away, leaving less room than one might wish to fully appreciate the range of desserts that beckon alluringly. Apple and berry crumble with cinnamon ice cream certainly attracts attention, and for those who insist on their Valrhona chocolate fondant, there it is, served with pistachio ice cream.

'Selections of ice cream and sorbets' can occasionally produce disappointing results, but happily that is not true at PJ's. Time perhaps to take refuge in some of the fine malt whiskies that grace the bar, or another of those stimulating cocktails that help take your mind off other less weighty distractions.
