The restaurant’s inviting ambiance features warm lighting, elegant furnishings, ample indoor and outdoor seating, and a grand central kitchen that adds a touch of theatre to the dining experience.

Our evening began at 7.30 pm, as we took in the gorgeous surroundings.

The highlight? A beautiful outdoor courtyard with a stunning central fountain, ideal for al fresco dining on warm evenings.

Kicking off the night with cocktails, my friend opted for a Spicy Margarita, while I ventured out of my comfort zone with a Coconut Espresso Martini—a surprisingly delightful choice.

The menu at TH@51 is a tantalizing mix of international dishes, each meticulously crafted with fresh, high-quality ingredients.

We started with the Sumac Garlic Prawns (£17) and Cajun Spiced Lamb Bao Buns (£18).

Both dishes were outstanding, but the prawns, paired with beetroot tzatziki, stole the show - I could easily devour them daily.

Although a committed carnivore, I couldn’t resist the Paneer Wellington (£26) for my main course.

Accompanied by Mascarpone makhani, garlic spinach, and a fusion of Indian and British flavors, this dish was a revelation.

The buttery, flaky crust and rich, creamy paneer were perfectly complemented by the luxurious sauce.

My friend savoured the Duck Leg Roast, featuring Indian-inspired spiced onion, Asian chili risotto, and a poached egg—another testament to TH@51's culinary progress.

Sufficiently stuffed, we moved to the courtyard, soaking in the serene atmosphere, including views of the stunning hotel and the J Wellness Circle—a spa retreat for Londoners and visitors alike.
