Situated nearby some great theatres on Shaftesbury Avenue is Hankies Cafe, a warm and cozy Indian tapas style restaurant. Hankies speacialise in creating the classic Indian roti hand spun till its thin and cooked on a burning hot tawa and folded into hankies – hence the name Hankies. As you enter Hankies you immediately see the bar area and the chef busy in open plan style kitchen, the restaurant itself is small in size and intimate. The look and feel is nice and welcoming and the staff are equally exceptional throughout.

Underwood Pinot Noir Oregon-USA If you go to any supermarket in the high street I’m sure you’ll find many different styles of wine from the United States, but are they any good? People always say to me that they get a headache after drinking a California Chardonnay, and that it’s no good; They’re probably right. Drinking cheap mass produced wine that is bottled in the UK will give you a headache. It’s not the wine but the Oak that has a bad affect on people especially if its fake Oak. What’s fake oak? Well, its just that, wine producers will put in Oak chips that are a cheap way of making the wine Oaked and even use drops of Oak essence to flavor the wine.
I honestly cannot say a negative thing about the Caraway. What I will say is that you should never ever judge a book by its cover because my immediate reaction of the exteriors of the restaurant was that they served pub food inside! Yes, the Caraway Lounge is situated inside the remnants of an old pub (the restaurant has only occupied the restaurant for just over a year) but if you book a table there, please don’t allow the outside to fool you because as you you enter into this restaurant, you will be left pleasantly surprised and quite simply blown away by the decor,the exceptional customer service and the great food and cocktails.
I walked in and immediately felt at home. The dark walls and the candlelit Dickensian-style bar with deep mahogany tables and wooden panels were reminiscent of an old style barn. Upon entering the award winning and reputable Pipe of Port, I was taken aback by the cosy nature of the venue. You could honestly be anywhere and it was hard to believe that this intimate setting was situated in the heart of the seaside town Southend on Sea as it could easily be found in the trendy areas of London such as Shoreditch and Camden.
