Dubai's flagship Noodle House now on Shaftesbury Avenue, London.

Noodle house is by far one of my favourite places to dine in Dubai; after a long day of walking around the Dubai mall (it's only the biggest mall in the world, so no big deal:-)) I always find we somehow end up at Noodle house longing for some much needed comfort food.  

When I heard the flagship brand had opened up shop in London's Shaftesbury avenue, my taste buds did a little dance, I had to visit. 

The London branch offers the same overall vibrant style you will find in Dubai; red interior, an open plan kitchen and attentive staff. 
On arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff who ushered us to our seats and gave us some menus; Although some of the menu items were slightly different to Dubai's menu choices and my outside view wasn't a spectacular dancing fountain show and a buzzing atmosphere, I still enjoyed the meal, the service and ambiance

After much deliberation, we ordered some starters, a bunch of curries, some rothi and cocktails and we were not disappointed.

Starters: Spicy wings / Satay Chicken with peanut sauce.

Main: Green Curry

The Noodle house is situated in the heart of the West end so it's perfect for lunch or dinner after a shopping spree or after sightseeing.
The same authentic taste of food can be found at the London Shaftesbury branch, so if you're around the area give it a try, you just might like Noodle house as much as I do. 

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know some of your favourite places to dine in London or Dubai.


Nearest tube station: Tottenham court road or Covent Garden
Offers: Sign up on their website and bring a friend to dine with you for free.
Main meals are priced at around £10 -£12

A day at the Museum - Exploring England series 2

A couple of weeks ago, I took a trip into London and explored the British Museum. There's something about embarking on a tourist-type activity in your own hometown that makes you feel super excited.

It was my little ones first real trip on the london underground (tube or trains for those who aren't familiar with London) so there was excitement in the air, or rather in the underground.

On the getting to the museum the atmosphere was buzzing, from the big London black cabs to the multitude of tourists and burger vans, and the surprisingly gorgeous spring weather, it was the best day to explore London.
