90,000 people now work in the gleaming towers of Canary Wharf, once part of the busiest port in the world; today one of London’s two global financial centres. It’s also a popular destination for sightseeing, shopping and events. As you’d expect from such a cosmopolitan area, Canary Wharf restaurants are slick and stylish. You’ll find a wide range of international cuisines and a varied choice of waterside views.
For tasty oriental food, try Sri Nam on Cabot Square. Enjoy Asian streetfood in the brasserie, or a full meal in the sumptuous Thai dining room. If you’re looking for Italian restaurants in Canary Wharf, you’re spoilt for choice. Great options include Jamie’s Italian, where rustic Italian food is masterminded by head chef Gennaro Contaldo, and Zizzi, which offers trusty Italian classics, reinvented dishes and skinny pizzas.
If French dining takes your fancy, possibilities include contemporary cuisine in the glass-fronted Plateau Bar and Grill on the fourth floor of Canada Place, and classic favourites at Café Rouge, just round the corner from Canary Wharf DLR.
And for dishes to suit all tastes, you can’t go wrong at Smollensky’s. As popular for business lunches as it is for à la carte evening dining, Smollensky’s serves modern American food with Mediterranean and oriental influences.
