The London Bridge to George Town
THE LONDON Bridge area is a south London hub for great international restaurants and exotic eateries. It is fast becoming the perfect spot for fine restaurants to put themselves on the menu as part of the international culinary crowd. On the other side of the table, diners have a dietary world at their fingertips.
One firmly established and London Bridge-based dining room is the Georgetown Restaurant. In 2002, the Georgetown restaurant group decided to open up its first London premises in SE1 because the location had so much to offer.
"It's an up and coming place, there are more businesses relocating to the south of the river and there is also increased day and night activity," said Georgetown Restaurant manager Kumar Muthalagappan (pictured).
"We are very proud to be the main restaurant for the London Bridge Hotel," he added.
Now in its fourth year, Georgetown offers Londoners a unique Malaysian dining experience. "This colonial Malaysian restaurant follows the variety of cultures in Malaysia," says Kumar. "Our menu covers the different Malay dishes, Tamil, Mandarin and a very good vegetarian selection."
Diners can go global and choose from each region as they order or stay faithful to their favourites, rather than mix or match. It's the perfect dining experience for groups or business dinners and lunches where people might have different preferences.
"We present our food in the true colonial style with a type of French style a la carte menu so each person can order their own dish," he added. "The ambiance at Georgetown is about recreating the colonial times of the late 1800s," suggested Kumar. "Imagine a colonial ballroom with chandeliers and classical music like Mozart and Chopin."
The unique approach to dining at the Georgetown restaurant aims to bring the best of all different cuisines in Malaysia to the elegant London Bridge table. Georgetown London Bridge makes an excellent venue for corporate entertaining and fine dining for groups of up to 100 people.
"There are so many restaurants in London, we wanted to be very different. When you walk through the doors at Georgetown, you really do feel like you're in a different place. It's very exotic."
Georgetown Restaurants pride themselves as Britain's first colonial Malaysian restaurant group and is now found across the country in Kenilworth, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Leeds and Nottingham. The family is set to grow, with plans to branch out further, especially in London.
"This is our brand and it's working well," said Kumar. "Now we can probably think of opening a few more around London to expand the Georgetown experience."
Georgetown Restaurant is open every day for lunch from 12.00 to 2.30pm and for dinner from 6.00 to 11.00pm.
"Imagine a colonial ballroom with chandeliers and classical music like Mozart and Chopin."
