Restaurants in London?

I know this has been asked before, but I'm hoping for some local opinions and I have no time to research as I'm leaving on Sat. and have a big close at work I have to give all of my attention to.

I'm looking for favorite Indian, favorite Pubs, and favorite restaurant in general.

Has anyone been to any of Jamie Olivers restaurants? Any say on them?

Thanks!

For Indian, I like Shezan in Knightsbridge a block or so NE of Harrods.

Gordon Ramsay's is fabulous.

Patisserie Valeris is good for light meals & pastries.

Pizza Express makes good pizza.

San Lorenzo is good but overpriced (IMO) for what it is.

The Good Earth is good Chinese.

Wagamama's is great for noodles & they have several branches.

I'm sure others will chime in with their favorites.

Sorry, Shezan is NW of Harrods. Been there for decades.

Wouldn't like like to specify an area of London - presumably (for evening activities) the one you're staying in ? There's not much point anyone recommending a pub in Shoreditch if you're staying in Fulham, for instance.

I'm staying in the West End on Regent, near bond. But I figure if I can get there easily by the Underground, I can go anywhere. I don't want to be locked into the area that I'm staying in if there's something great to try elsewhere.
Thanks

Fair enough, but you presumably don't want to spend 2 hours getting there - or back.

BTW it's Regent Street and Bond Street.

Four pubs with good meals are these
The Nags Head, 53 Kinnerton Street, and the Wilton Arms, 71 Kinnerton Street. Both of these Belgravia pubs have evening meals. Knightsbridge tube station.

The Two Chairmen. Corner of Queen Anne's Gate and Dartmouth Street, 100 yards from St James' Park tube station. Useful for visits to Parliament, Westminster, the Cabinet War Rooms, and St James' Park. Some Members of Parliament use it.

The Albert. Corner of Buckingham Gate and Victoria Street. Nearest tube St James Park. Downstairs good hot food, with spices well used, served also in the evening. Upstairs for lunches only a carvery, three courses at 15 pounds. The house beer is Courage, but other and better draught is also served.
