Default In the UK this week, need restaurant recomendations

I will be in Sunbury all week for work. In the past I have not had much luck finding good places to eat in Sunbury. One place I plan to try this trip is Indian Zest. Any of you UK Brethren have any other suggestions?

I'll do some reaearch as to where Sunbury is but I'm down in Wiltshire.

Let it be known that BBQ is not a big thing on this island so your choices are going to be more twoards Curry.

Thanks DR KY!

Other than fish and chips, I have not found any food in the UK to my taste. Only been there 3 times so I am still hopeful. With such great beer, one would think there would be good food somewhere.

If I'm honest from what I have noticed the Brits were traveling people so breads and the such are the backbone. Not much variety in that at all. Most dishes here are Curry's fry-ups and roast dinners so nothing really original or far from what is an everyday thing back home. The French influence then kicks in.

Get in London areas and there are plenty of restaurants alongside the Chinese places. Now I could truly be ignorant so Browser and Carbon will chime in and educate me but I just don't see a real food base here that is 'true' English.

There is usually a good meal had at a local country pub but that can be hit-and-miss depending on location.

I guess if you found a place that cooked great goose you would be in there.


I'll keep looking.

Sunbury is in Surrey, I was thinking Salisbury being that is close to me. The search continues but I have been given tips to head to wards London. A trip there really won't work with your schedule hua?

Been over several times, and the meal that stands out as "best" for me, other than a "Full English" breakfast was some street food I bought from a middle eastern street vendor outside Chelsea stadium after a football game. It was some garlic chicken wrap thing with a very hot sauce - flippin' amazing!

Probably rat, but good!

It was more like midnite, but it sure was good. Made the last train to Birmingham, got in at 3 and had an 8:00 am meeting. Typical day in the life of a sales guy!

I had bangers today for the first time. They were tasty.

Thanks for all the research. I will check out a few in the next couple days.

Cheers!
