Richmond restaurants for food enthusiasts

As you might have already guessed, Richmond hosts a large number of restaurants from a variety of cuisines, such as Persian, Greek and Mediterranean, Portuguese, Indian, and African. A reputable Greek restaurant we recommend all tourists in Richmond is Orpheus Taverna, a family run restaurant, an intimate place where you can enjoy a tasty traditional Greek dessert, just as well as main courses carefully cooked with fresh ingredients from local suppliers. Meze, the traditional Greek starter will open you appetite with a bite of hummus, tzatziki, or even feta cheese. For Indian restaurants, we surely recommend Taste of Mogul, a family run restaurant as well, with great customer services, excellent courses, all colourful and spicy.

Richmond hidden gems

Looking for unique experiences only locals can enjoy? Then we might have what you need. Well-hidden, the Petersham Nurseries can offer all tourists the bit of tranquillity needed, stunning décor, and food at highest standards. A glasshouse restaurant might be something odd, because of its location, but we assure you’ll have an extraordinary experience here. Whether you would prefer eating at the Café there or at the typically English Teahouse, you will enjoy some courses made from reputable recipes, cooked by experienced chefs. The location’s décor depends on each season, being mostly natural. A Christmas event here will surely fill you with joy and good thoughts.

As you can easily notice, Richmond is a part of London that has a lot to offer for all its tourists, from attractions, to cuisine and more.
