Modern gastronomical wonders by wondrous chef Nuno Mendes, in a cavernous East London setting make Viajante perfect for an artful evening's consumption. Be warned, however, this high end restaurant is not where to go if you're on a budget.

Incredible food in a surprisingly relaxed setting. Choose from 6, 9 or 12 courses, and have a chat with them a few days before you arrive to sort out any dietary issues you may have. My nine courses were nearly perfectly pitched, from simple touches like salted caramel butter, to complex combinations. An abundant feeling number of extras were added in to our meal...five 'snacks' to begin and a palate cleanser that was actually one of my favorite bits. Get the wine pairing, it truly elevates the flavors and includes some really interesting vintages.

You might have to wait 3 months to get a table at the restaurant, but bugger the booking and head for the bar. This is Nuno Mendes’ pad (ex Jean Georges & El Bulli), now cooking up a storm in East London. And boy does Alex the barman know how to do so too. He has access to the mother of all kitchens (he even uses a Rotaval – whatever that is) and can therefore create cocktails that most barmen wouldn’t even dream of.
What to drink? Well we loved the Roasted Pepper Rum Fizz, the Pisco Punch, and the Kangaroo (the original name for a Vodka Martini, apparently). Whatever you do, try and talk to Alex, because he comes up with new ideas every day, and if you’re lucky he might let you try his homemade sherbet.
It’s a slick set up, ideal place to seal a business deal, impress a date.
The barsnacks are INSANE, and they’ll give you an insight into what Nuno and his team are capable of next door. The wine list is banging, the Japanese whiskeys are not to be missed, all in all it’s a pretty rocking experience… Enjoy!

This restaurant is an incredible fusion of asian flavors like Thai and Japanese with Chef Nuno's roots growing up on a farm in Portugal. A creative and innovative take on melding cuisines, I was blown away by all of the thrilling combinations. Highlight: Yuzu-flavored crab cannelloni in a sheet of spiced milk, and garnished with tobiko and basil purée.Recommended for:Foodies

16/20; Food 8/10, Ambience 3/5, Service 5/5. Nuno Mendes' venture in the very stylish former Bethnal Green Town Hall turned hotel is a bit of a mixed bag, in my experience. The cooking promises much and some of the dishes are fabulous explosions of flavour, with exciting new combinations for the palate to explore. Others however, are simply weird - and not just a matter of taste, with our whole table not convinced. All in all definitely an adventure for on the boundaries of London gastronomy though (literally also, given the location). The decor is a bit too nondescript for my tastes, but conversely will thereby not cause as much controversy as the food.
