Lanes of London Restaurant Review

London, 05-03-2014

The recently opened Lanes of London, adjacent the Marriott Hotel in Park Lane, showcases the best of modern day London’s culinary street food highlights under one roof. The menu’s tapas style dishes consist of an amalgamation of flavours synonymous with famous ‘Lanes’ in London.

Lebanese from Edgware Road, Indian from Brick Lane, British classics from Portobello Road and Vietnamese influences from Kingsland Road.

The new arrival to London’s food scene is subtly announced by small exterior sign at eye level, dramatically juxtaposed by a bold branded mosaic inlay at the main entrance.

The ‘street’ is however definitely not present in this street food experience. An elegant atmosphere is created by a classic interior, which acts as a neutral backdrop to the diverse food offer.

The space is divided into a relaxed lounge area situated at the main entrance opposite the bar and a dinning area to the back. A combination of soft brown toned leather upholstered seats and dark green booth and banquette seating adds warmth and comfort to the space.

Classical and contemporary design delicately merge through the presence of white and ashen timber wall panels, corniced ceiling detailing and a collection of beveled mirror, clear and olive coloured glass elements.

Lanes of London definitely captures the classical feel of London through the interior and offers a contemporary twist through the food offer.
