London Spot: Minsky’s Restaurant


I went out for a meal with one of my big sisters a few weeks back at Minsky’s Restaurant; had a lovely time catching up and celebrating her birthday, my treat of course (“,).

The restaurant is situated within the Danubius Hotel in Regents Park and is open to hotel guests as well as the general public. Being a short walk or bus ride away from either St John’s Wood or Baker Street Stations, it is easy to find following Google Maps.

Upon arrival, we entered the hotel lobby and followed signs to the restaurant. Unfortunately the actual restaurant space was closed and a few tables had been set up in the bar area to accommodate those who had pre-booked to eat. I would have loved to have experienced the full service provided by the establishment and enjoy the decor but this was not possible.

As we had walked into a bar, there was no one there to greet us. I had to go to the bar counter to make myself known and be seated. A bartender pointed us towards the tables which had been reserved and we took our seats. After about 10 minutes of waiting and having a chinwag, I went to the bar counter again to enquire about our booking and find out when we would receive our menus. Finally a waiter came to attend to us and moved us as we had sat at the wrong table… ha!

We were given a set menu to choose from and had our drinks orders taken.

I throughly enjoyed my starter and dessert, however I found the steak to be a bit chewy and bland. I have been working towards giving up meat especially red meat but I know what a good steak should taste like. My fish cake was packed with flavour, soft on the inside and just the right amount of crispy on the outside. Dessert, absolutely delicious, the lemon was powerful and the fruits fresh.

Would I visit Minsky’s Restaurant again? Yes to give it a second chance to redeem itself, I reckon the steak was pre-prepared rather than cooked fresh as the restaurant was closed.

Sometimes we need to strip ourselves bare and go back to basics. It’s very easy to get caught up in the thickness of life and neglect our souls. We are so busy trying to build empires, find our soul mates, look our best; an a whole host of other things View Post

Have you set any goals for 2016? I have, I won’t list them all here as many of them are personal. I find goals a lot more achievable than new year resolutions, you set time scales and do reviews to see how close you are to hitting those goals. Some of mine are: View Post
