Best late night dining joints in London

London’s come a long way in terms of culinary options since the past few decades. Before the advent of the multicultural eateries in the city, there were limited food options to choose from. It is mainly in the post-war period in the 1950s and 1960s, when migrants from all over the world arrived in Britain, and in particular London, that the food scene got a tremendous boost.

Now London is home to some of the best and most exotic eateries and restaurants in the world, with the city having become a veritable food haven. From the in-house restaurants in the top luxury hotels in London to its street food markets, the array of options is overwhelming.

The restaurants at the Montcalm London hotels are also famous for their excellent menus that offer the best in English and continental cuisines in the city.
