Duck and Waffle has a well-earned reputation as being one of the best restaurants with a view in London - and what a view. It's almost worth a visit for the elevator ride alone.

Min Jiang
West London
Royal Garden Hotel, 2-24 Kensington High Street, London W8 4PT

Fine Chinese dining with a fabulous view over Kensington Palace Gardens. You can't knock the attention to detail - Beijing Duck ovens and woks able to withstand very high temperatures were made in Singapore and brought over to ensure authenticity, which seems to have worked.
