Asian restaurant in Fitzrovia
Foley’s is a slick and intimate Asian restaurant in Fitzrovia. Serving up a menu of Asian inspired dishes, cocktails and sake we were very excited about dinner!
We loved the look of the cocktail menu full of flavourful ingredients. We went for the crisp and refreshing Foleys Gin & Tonic (£9) with gin, lemon, grapefruit and pink peppercorns. We also tried the Big Panda (£9.50) with Appleton white rum, sake, lemongrass & cucumber syrup, yuzu sour, topped with soda. Served in a fun tall panda glass and popping with flavour this was a real favourite.
The Food Menu
The menu is split into bits and bobs (small plates/starters), salads, meat and fish and noodle soups. We tried to go for a little bit of everything and ended up with a table full of the following:
- ginger calamari with ginger, coriander £(8)
- panko prawn, chilli lime dressing(£8)
- prawn pomelo, peanuts, dried coconut, chilli coriander on shiso leaf (£7)
- gyoza vegetable, soya wasabi (£7)
- somtam, green papaya salad (£8)
- grilled seabream, isaan style herbal marination, cooked in banana leaf, chilli lime (£17)
It was genuinely hard to pick a favourite as we hugely enjoyed every dish. The calamari just melted in yout mouth and we loved the hum of ginger and the panko prawn was incredibly juicy with the crispiest of coatings.
The prawn pomelo wrapped in the shiso leaf had a slightly bitter kick and was a burst of flavours. We loved the beautiful velvety soft pastry of the gyoza’s and could have easily had more! The somtam is quite fiery (we were warned) but we managed to almost finish it as the flavours were delicious and sharp.
These dishes were all smaller plates and we ordered the seabream as a main to share. It did not disappoint, arriving beautifully fragrant to the table wrapped in banana leaf. The fish was penetrated to the core with flavour and was so tender. We would highly recommend this as a main – it was sublime.
Foley’s is a lovely Asian restaurant in Fitzorvia for unpretentious food that is popping with flavour. We loved the creative dishes that are easily made for sharing and the delicious cocktails The laid back vibe of the place fuses great quality with friendly service and chatty staff that are clearly enthused about the menu. If you love Asian flavours and fancy trying some creative dishes with spot on flavours we would highly recommend a visit. They also have a set lunch menu for only £10 including a drink.
