The Gate

Hammersmith,W6 and Islington, N1

Why go: ‘Indo-Iraqi Jewish’ is how the owners of The Gate describe their cooking, a blend of Indian and Arabic cuisines with  traditional Jewish food and a touch of European influence – think mezze platters, lentils, and aubergine schnitzels.

Why else: It’s been going for 25 years and is somewhat of a London institution owned by two brothers, Adrain and Michael  Daniel, who have stayed true to their roots.
