London Restaurant Reviews

Restaurants in and around theatre-land (that buzzing area of the West End covering Soho, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Covent Garden) are notoriously busy, especially at the weekend. Many of the hottest foodie hotspots have […]

Forks-Up is created by a bunch of professional Londoners. Some of us have restaurant industry experience and some of us writing experience, we thus thought that a combination of the two would mean that we could write interesting and useful articles for people living in (or those visiting) London in order to aid their decisions on where to eat.

The creators of Forks-Up grew tired of reading articles created by review sites which were bias towards those restaurants which treated them better because of who they were and ignoring those restaurants who didn’t fall within their “clique”. We thought this infringes their ability to be objective and write from a regular customer’s experience because they weren’t regular customers.

Whilst visiting a restaurant once cannot be a good judge of what you would experience every time you visit it. We try to understand, with our industry experience, whether it might just have been an extraordinarily busy night, whether they may currently have staffing problems or if they have bad habits which would find its way into any service that they ran.

Those of our team who have industry experience, have been out of it long enough to not have a recognisable association with it, and thus aren’t recognised on our visits. With their keen knowledge of the particular details of the finer points of service and quality, we are able to write valuable articles for the everyday diner.

We don’t only visit Michelin Star restaurants; we visit everyday restaurants as well. We try to write reviews on as many types of cuisines as possible. If there are any restaurants that you think we really have to visit sometime soon, please do let us know at foodie@forks-up.com.
