That's where this list of Battersea Power Station's best restaurants comes in, allowing you to eat and drink your way around this historic housing development.

Updated on 29 February 2024

Having started life as a coal-fired power station, Battersea Power Station has been an iconic part of the capital’s skyline since its creation in 1929. After it was decommissioned for use it lay vacant for years before being snapped up by some of London’s most prominent developers to be made into one of the city’s most exciting new neighbourhoods. Now fully formed, Battersea Power Station’s restaurants are open for business, and raring to go, offering up a little something for everyone.

For something indulgent, we’d always go for the comfortable surrounds of Cinnamon Kitchen – a high end Indian experience with lust-worthy interiors, but you'll also find a ton of low-key joints serving up killer rotis, healthy poke bowls, boujie pancakes and relaxed tapas. Beyond the foodie treats of this spot there are further draws, like the boutique cinema, a handful of good bars and the sprawling communal gardens, so even if restaurants aren’t your initial intention when visiting, they make a nice detour to extend your time here.

We’ve visited each of the Battersea Power Station restaurants so that we can provide you with honest, authentic reviews. If one below takes your fancy, simply click through to read the full write up. Or, if you're in the area for a while, you can find plenty more restaurants near Battersea.
