Housed in St. James' Court, A Taj Hotel, Bistro manages to hold its own against established neighbours such as Bank Westminster and
Michelin-starred Quilon thanks to its plush interiors and please-all Anglo-European menu with ‘British Asian’ add-ons. Soft seats and gentle
lighting contribute to the cosy atmosphere, which is matched by international classics ranging from bouillabaisse, Caesar salad and grilled vegetable tian to fish and chips, homemade ravioli with
sage butter or grilled rib-eye with béarnaise sauce. Alternatively, follow the spice trail with chicken tikka masala, rogan josh or Malaysian red snapper laksa with steamed noodles, before chilling
out with a plate of tiramisu, coffee ‘soil’ and edible flowers. On sunny days, ask for a table in the hotel’s pretty courtyard, which is a world away from Westminster’s hubbub.
St James’ Court Hotel on Buckingham Gate offers a number of dining options, one of which is Bistro 51. Contemporary in design but somewhat subdued in taste, Bistro 51 serves a contemporary European menu.

Last year G and I decided that we needed to visit India after watching a documentary on the Taj Palace Hotel in Mumbai, the crowning jewel for the Taj Hotel Group and India’s most famous hotel. So you can imagine my delight on getting invited to review the 24 Karat Gold Gluten Free Afternoon Tea at St James Court Hotel by Zomato as it meant we were going to experience our very first Taj Hotel in person.We managed to arrive a little earlier than we anticipated so we found the bar…and had two drinks including a Cinderella Mocktail for me and I didn’t lose a shoe!...

Afternoon tea is my guilty pleasure, but when you add 24-karat gold into the mix it certainly becomes a more opulent indulgence.So when I heard that St James Court Hotel London had broken with tradition and created a decadent afternoon tea, inspired by Luxor Pure Gold 24K Brut Champagne I couldn't wait to give it a try. The hotel grounds are a beautiful oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle of London...

Nestled in St James Park in an unobtrusive corner, the Taj Hotel manages to squeeze in within a stone’s throw of the Queen’s residence. It aptly provides a white tablecloth experience – what else within the proximity of royalty?

We walked past Buckingham Palace and quickly arrived at the hotel, an imposing Victorian building close to St James’s Park. Inside, the golden hues of the reception made a welcome contrast to the grey day outside.We were shown to Bistro 51’s dining room, a very comfy space adorned with modern artworks. The hotel is also home to Michelin starred Indian restaurant Quilon and the modern restaurant, Bank, with its airy conservatory overlooking the courtyard...
