Going to a restaurant is a social experience. You don’t go eat out just for the food, but for the whole experience a restaurant provides. That includes the restaurant’s interior design. If it doesn’t improve the dining experience, then the customer will not likely return. If you’re a design lover, you might have a taste for these London restaurants.

Spicy food and spicy decor! The interior design is nothing like you would expect from an Indian restaurant. Instead, it looks more like a glorified pub, and a large one at that. A very modern restaurant, it’s mostly dark color palette is contrasted but reddish and golden accents in the decor, not to mention the option of mid-century furniture.

Old Compton Brasserie

Offering all-day brasserie dining, this restaurant will welcome you into a relaxed yet creative setting. Breakfast? Eggs Benedict. Lunch? Great creamy mash. Vegan? Cheese burgers – you read that right!

The whole space is relaxing yet stimulating, taking inspiration from the vibrant history of Soho. Open wide, it crosses a somewhat decaying urban feel of exposed bricks and industrial features with vibrant colors and artwork. The furniture is decidedly mid-century modern, as it couldn’t be any other way!

Savage Garden

Describing themselves as a bar for all occasions, this is a location that you will certainly recall. From business lunches to DJ parties, this is definitely quite a versatile place that you must book in advance.

Its two terraces provide an absolute 360º view of London’s skyline and a decor that is as opulent as it is elegant. The reflective surfaces contrast with velvet upholstered furniture items, in conjunction with a feisty color palette.


Sweet, but not sour! Have a taste of Chinese flavors in innovative dishes and drinks as well as creative interpretations of traditional well-known recipes from all over China.

The interior decor is a contemporary take on Asian design. A soft palette of pinks and plums, and occasional splashes of green compliments the woody surroundings. The focal piece is a cherry blossom tree exuding an almost magical energy across the dining space. It is an organic space that balances itself out with the busy atmosphere of London.


Seasonal and local food reminiscent of home comforts. In this restaurant you can expect bursts of flavor from a wide range of dishes, from simple to more complex meals.
