- Where to eat near King's Cross?
mai sushi was OK on Chalton Street – runs perpendicular to Euston Road. Not just sushi, all Japanese food. There are some other places along that road too. There is a Shepherd Neame pub on the road parallel to Euston road (south of Euston Road) or if you like your ales there is the Bree Louise just the other side of Euston Station (its not a long walk if you don’t know the area.Posted 3 years ago
Liking the look of the Bree Louise, I used to get the train to Euston a fair bit – gutted I never noticed the place! My colleague is from Taiwan and I’ve been promising to educate him on proper beers at some point so that could be a good start.

Two awesome Asian vedgei restaurants on Drummond Street, London NW1 2HL
The Diwana Bhel Poori House & the Ravi Shankar right next door.
My preference is for the Ravi Shankar.
Do not be put off by the fact they are vedgi, the chickpea & vedgi curries are to die for & the paper thin pancake things are amazing with that coconut chutney. NB: Bring your own beer.Posted 3 years ago
Off down to that London for a conference on Weds and will be travelling down Tues evening with a work colleague, staying close to King’s Cross. Any suggestions for where to get something to eat when we get down on Tues? It’ll be going on work expenses so nothing too fancy (any suggestions for checking out the new Christian raw-potato bar will also be dutifully ignored). Recommendations for where to go for a couple of beers afterwards also appreciated, cheers!
p.s. It’s the Piling & Foundations conference should by random chance any other STW’ers be kicking around for it.Posted 3 years agokonabunnyMember
Angel is very good for restaurants of all colours and flavours but it’s probably 30-40 minutes walk to the middle of Upper St where they are (I used to live there FWIW).
It’s 30 mins walk from Kings X all the way to H&I! It’s 20 mins from Kings X to Ottolenghi.
If you really lived there, you obviously didn’t walk much… 😛Posted 3 years agosimons_nicolai-ukMember
Is there an Honest Burger up there now? Some of the best burgers in London – we’re regulars at the Brixton branch.
Our standby near Kings Cross is Chilli Cool for proper ‘nose-to-tail’ Sichuan Chinese. Theres a really good Tapas pub opposite Chilli Cool if you want real ale and tapas.
Ate at Sen Viet a few weeks back – good cheap Vietnamese with some intresting things on the menu. Plan to head back there soon.Posted 3 years ago

Hey OP, where did you eat in the end?
POSTED 22 MINUTES AGO # REPORT-POST
I’m not there yet! Travelling down on the train tomorrow for seven ish, will make a decision on the way down probably, or at least a short list – think I need to find a full week conference to try out all the suggestions! Will be sure to post a review after, in the meantime keep the suggestions going if you have any, and don’t forget the requirement for good beer during/after, cheers!Posted 3 years ago
Here’s a guide to all the new stuff that’s been happening down there with the redevolpment and everything. It actually looks pretty exciting, if I was in the OP’s position I would read up on couple of places and then head out and follow my nose, check out all the new stuff. It looks good!Posted 3 years ago
Right, review time:
We decided upon Honest Burger in the end as we were both pretty hungry and just fancied getting tucked in, wandered in and had to wait five mins for a table (7.30pm) so unfortunately had to wait at the bar and sample some Brixton IPA – Very nice, but pricey (woohoo for work expenses!). Table free, Rib Man burger and onion rings ordered each and pretty rapidly they arrived – absolutely spot on, medium rare as advertised and really tasty. Chips and onion rings good too.
Then decided to wander off in search of beer and headed to the Bree Louise. Normally I’m a fan of trying a few different ales but there was one called ‘Piledriver’ (Wentworth Brewery I think?) and as we were going to a piing conference the next day I took it as a sign from God that I was meant to drink as much as possible of it. Staggered back to the Hotel a couple of hours later!
Heading back to King’s Cross after the conference I decided to get some dinner in the form of a steak burrito from Benito’s Hat (up on the first floor/mezzanine thing), also very good and I’d recommend if you’re into that kind of thing.
Cheers for the suggestions folks!Posted 3 years ago
