For fans of a Pan Asian menu, we had to pick Sexy Fish Restaurant in Mayfair, and with an Instagram following of 82.4k, it looks like many others would say the same. With a coral reef from floor to ceiling, a sea monster across the wall and mermaids elegantly rising from the bar, we love the eccentric, aquatic feel. They really have thought of every single detail, right down to the chopstick holders being little goldfish. The food is to die for and don’t get us started on the delicious cocktails. Keep a beady eye open whilst dining here, as it’s a popular celebrity hang out. Having catered to the likes of Elton John and Jamie Foxx plus so many more.

Bob Bob Ricard can be located at 1 Upper James Street and found on Instagram with a following of 33.7k. The ‘Press For Champagne’ button which is famously located within the booths whilst you enjoy your English/Russian Menu, had us chomping at the bit to get a table. The famous button, once pressed, sends a waiter over to your table in a matter of seconds baring champagne refills and that alone gives this restaurant a place in our top five. However the menu of Baked Oysters, Brezhnev topped with truffle, lobster mac and cheese, the legendary Chicken Kiev, as well as the stunning decor of Prussian blue banquettes, art deco monogramming and dazzling degrees of gold, makes this restaurant a must!

We cannot make a list of our top 5 Extravagant London Restaurants without mentioning The Ritz, with a following of 118k on Instagram. The Ritz has to be one of the most famous places in London. It really does not need an introduction. The Ritz restaurant with its elegant old English decor has kept its excellence for years, but with Michelin star chefs we are certain the Ritz reputation will forever be intact.

From descending the stars under a decadently illustrated lantern, to washing your hands under golden swan-shaped taps, every detail here has been designed to swathe diners in a red velvet rush of opulence. The Mayfair spot has been styled after the nightclubs of 1930s Shanghai: the upstairs dining room is serenaded with live music every night, while the downstairs Club Chinois hosts raucous (and frequently racy) cabaret shows beyond the golden palm tree columns of its Wave Bar. The theatrically served Peking duck is a must-try – unless you can make your mind up between five different types of wagyu beef. Based in Berkeley Street, Mayfair, this is another must try extravagant restaurant.

5: @circuslondon

Circus is a unique and quirky cabaret restaurant and cocktail bar in London’s vibrant Covent Garden. Circus is a restaurant and show with a difference, brought to life by an amazing and outrageous pop-up circus. Expect the unexpected as you see aerialists, contortionists, hand balancers, fire-breathers, hula-hoopers and much more. Making this not just a great restaurant to eat at, but also a great night of entertainment. The highly popular Pan-Asian menu (with meat or vegetarian food options), created and overseen by Executive Chef Andrew Lassetter, is designed for sharing. High quality food, amazing service and sensational short bursts of entertainment come together to create wonderful memories that will leave you surprised and delighted.
