A mere hop, skip and jump over the Thames via Vauxhall Bridge, on London's vibrant South Bank, you'll find an exceptional dining experience at Chino Latino. Despite our high expectations there was no danger of disappointment, with charming and informative staff on hand to help start the evening aptly with something from the impressive sake selection and enticing cocktail list. Our choice of starters and mains was made easy thanks to the tempting tasting menus, featuring a wide variety of delicious and beautifully presented Asianinfluenced dishes. Full of texture and colour, the mouth-watering morsels of tenkasu rolls were a real delight and the half monkfish tail accompanied by jelly made from the rare yuzu fruit provided an extra-special touch. The beetroot and cream cheese salad was presented as a mini work of art and looked too good to eat - almost. The menu is equally appealing for meat lovers; our thinly sliced sirloin strips with sesame - served juicy and sizzling on a bed of hot stones - were consumed with vigour. Our meal ended perfectly with some inventive and stunning desserts - we highly recommend the plum wine to complement them. A venue suitable for any size party, Chino Latino provided a truly pleasurable evening of fine dining, enjoyed in comfort and style.
