These London restaurants all triumphed at this year’s Good Food Awards

We all know that London has a seemingly endless number of top-notch restaurants. Attempting to sift through the capital’s many, many eateries and decide which one’s actually worth your time is pretty tricky business – though, obviously, Time Out’s peerless food hub is the best in the game.

But there are plenty of other places that aim to reveal the best restaurants in London right now – and one of them, the Good Food Awards, has just revealed its list of winners for 2023/24. 

The Good Food Awards are all about celebrating culinary excellence across the entire UK. Established way back in 2002, the GFAs champion independent businesses that serve up delicious nosh. The clue is in the name, after all.

In the Good Food Awards 2023/24 edition, these were the London restaurants that triumphed in the general overall category.

  • The Great Chase, Islington
  • The Taste of Nawab, Muswell Hill
  • Turkuaz, Catford
  • Loro di Napoli, Ealing

  • Hello Burger, Sidcup

This establishment won in the ‘gastro pub’ category.

  • The Angel and Crown, Richmond

These were the winners in the ‘takeaways’ category.

Fish and chips gets its own category, and these chippies took home prizes.
