Fora Recommends: Best restaurants in Fitzrovia

October 2019

With its wide streets, narrow alleyways and beautiful architecture, Fitzrovia is a draw for creative professionals, particularly those in the film and media sectors. The area is also home to a huge range of independent and chain restaurants to satisfy all tastes.

Whether you’re into Italian, Thai or Middle Eastern food, you’ll find a restaurant to suit you in Fitzrovia. Here are our top picks:


Spaghetti House

Goodge Street is packed with restaurants. Our favourite? Spaghetti House. It serves freshly cooked Italian cuisine and has stood in this spot since 1955. You can dine in or take your food back to our Eastcastle Street office, just a 10-minute walk away. Spaghetti House also offers a private function room for group outings.


Salt Yard

Also on Goodge Street is Salt Yard, offering both Italian and Spanish cuisine. This is a great place if you’d like to try a bit of everything, as it has a diverse range of tapas options. Choose this restaurant for a no-fuss team meeting or end-of-year party, as it’s got a delicious £35 set menu for parties of eight or more.


Busaba Bloomsbury

If Thai food is your thing, why not make a visit to Busaba in Bloomsbury? Expect big flavours from the classic Thai dishes, along with healthy ‘express’ lunch bowls and a selection of fruity desserts. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for here, with Busaba’s special selection of curries, noodle dishes and vegetable bowls.


Honey & Co.

This restaurant proves that big isn’t always best. Honey & Co. is a tiny eatery offering traditional Middle Eastern food. It serves everything from roast lamb to salads and “tahini with everything”, as well as lovely cakes and cookies, so there’s no danger of leaving hungry. You’ll find Honey & Co. on Warren Street, in between Warren Street and Great Portland Street tube stations.



Kibele on Great Portland Street takes you all the way to Turkey. It opens early for breakfast, so it’s great for a pre-work snack to get your motivation flowing. There’s a drinks menu to suit every taste too, offering more than 50 wines from across the globe. What’s more, it hosts live entertainment most nights. On Wednesdays, expect to find a harpist serenading you and, on Thursdays and Fridays, a live band. On Saturdays, things ramp up a gear, as the live band is joined by belly dancers and the restaurant’s resident DJ.


With all this delicious food on your doorstep, there’s no need to work with your tummy rumbling. If you’re trying out restaurants in the area, feel free to come and check out our Fitzrovia workspace.
