Some Strictly Kosher Restaurants in London

Having listed a list of strictly kosher restaurants I have tried in Paris, I decided to do the same for London.

YMMV, both as to kashrus and taste. This information was up-to-date as of our last trip to London in June, 2009, but always call to check first.


  • The Center for Jewish Life
    • Media House, 4 Stratford Place, London W1C 1AT (Central London)
      020 7495 6089
    • The food is all prepackaged from Grodzinski, i.e., Kedassia. I asked and was told that the milk for the coffee is halav Yisroel.
    • Sandwiches, salads, coffee, etc.
    • This place is some sort of Jewish everything center which also has food. It's a gem. The people are friendly and will leave you alone, there is really excellent machine coffee - figure that one out - and even the prepackaged sandwiches are good. The room which serves as a coffee shop is also a beis midrash with wood paneling and modern editions of some standard books (as well as some HaBaD books), and is a good place not only for a snack, but to hide out for a while from the stress of being a tourist, or while one's wife is wandering the local super-stores.

  • Kaifeng
    • 51 Church Road Hendon London NW4 4DU (Hendon)
      020 8203 7888
    • LBD "Glatt Mehadrin"
    • Chinese
    • The food is passable. The almost-Peking duck is an interesting idea, but the duck itself was overcooked on two separate occasions.

  • La Fiesta
    • 239 Golders Green Road, NW11 9PN (Golders Green)
      020 8458 0444
    • LBD "Glatt Mehadrin"
    • Grill; they call it Argentine.
    • Good meat, which they indeed grill according to your instructions.

  • Mattancherry
    • 109a Golders Green Road, NW11 8HR (Golders Green)
      020 8209 3060
    • Kedassia
    • Indian
    • I liked the food; my wife didn't.

  • Novellino
    • 103 Golders Green Road London NW11 8EN (Golders Green)
      020 8458 7273
    • LBD Dairy
    • Dairy. Mainly fish, pasta, and other Italian-style.
    • We both liked this one very much, even though I don't normally like anything which isn't meat-based. They have a particularly large and good selection of wines and alcohol, and someone respectable-looking enough to pour the wine.

  • Milk n Honey
    • 124 Golders Green Road, London, NW11 8HB (Golders Green)
      020 8455 0664
    • Kedassia
    • Dairy. Light meals, cakes, and espresso-based coffees.
    • Friendly people. We had breakfast and/or an afternoon snack here frequently.
