Why The London Grill is special ?
Everything about the London Grill oozes class and romance. From the warm, dim lighting and the wood and gold crests decorating the wall to the single rose adorning each table, everything is, well, fancy. This is your chance to dress up - Colombo has embraced casual chic, but this is one of the few places you can finally whip out that LBD for. The crowd veers towards couples, although there was one family gathering the night I went. The tables are placed well apart, enough to ensure privacy, while also creating a light buzz of conversation. There was a piano player stumbling over popular classics, which was the only slightly jarring element, but it’s forgivable.
Some must-try dishes:
Eggs benedict with smoked salmon: $11
Beetroot cured salmon tartare: $11
Breast of duck with honey glazed baby onion & passion scented jus: $18
Sirloin steak: $26

Ordered the steak medium rare but was served well done; nevertheless it was very flavourful! Friendly and efficient staff who served us two courses "complements of the chef".
