Yelp's Exclusive Dinner Party at Lotus

17 Charing Cross Road
Leicester Square
London WC2H 0EP
020 7839 8797

THE BEST Yelp London event so far, by a huge margin! Alex is gonna have to really rack his brains to top this experience.

Was wonderful to meet so many yelpers, some whom I already followed and it was lovely to meet the people behind the reviews.

The food was fantastic and the number of wines we tasted was somewhere in the double digits. They all paired beautifully with the food. This was my first experience of wine paired with Indian food (as an Indian, we tend to pair our food with chilled beer or some refreshing cocktails) and it was absolutely amazing.

 While the smaller table settings and the constant flow of food meant that we couldn't spend much time with people other than those at our table, it also ensured that we got to know the others at our table pretty well and had some very interesting conversations.

It was a huge menu & everything was excellent, so I'm just going to put the names down here and you can try them for yourself, until then, just look at these pictures & drool. I know I do.
