Regents Park’s Danubius Hotel houses a fantastic little European-style restaurant that bears a distinct Hungarian influence on its menu. Down Lodge Road, just a short walk from St John’s Wood tube station and an even shorter walk from Regents Park itself, diners aren’t just guests at the hotel. Rather, they are gourmands from all over London looking for sumptuous meals in a richly appointed setting complete with copper columns and stained glass windows.
Regents Park’s Minsky’s bills itself as an American Deli restaurant. This makes
sense if you can concede that Hungarian-influenced European cuisine is a vital part
of American cuisine. Indeed, the melting pot of American cuisine can easily
accommodate dishes such as Minksy’s lamb goulash soup, a deliciously contrasted
starter of melon and Parma ham, chicken schnitzel or a solid sirloin steak. Round
your meal off at the Danubius Hotel’s on-site restaurant down Lodge Road with one
of Minsky’s indulgent desserts: the vanilla baked cheesecake uses Madagascan
vanilla, while a selection of Hungarian cakes and pastries are rarities not to be
missed by London diners.
Minsky’s location in the Danubius Hotel along Lodge Road is great for Londoners checking out the action at Lord’s cricket ground or simply taking a stroll through Regents Park. This American Deli Restaurant is found just a short distance from St John’s Wood station, and its offering goes beyond the Hungarian-centric European cuisine it’s best known for. Minsky’s also do a good weekend carvery and traditional English afternoon teas. Plus, you can check out the live entertainment in the adjacent Pavilion Bar.
I went to Minskys with two friends. Although the starters and desserts are not terribly exiting, the star of the show is the roast. The meat is good quality, with a choice of medium rare or well done. The veggies are good and the service friendly. All in all very good value for money.
Very nice ambiance, the stained glass windows were very impressive.Also we were impressedwith the friendly and attentive staff. All of the three courses we had were very enjoyable. We will definitely be going to dine at Minkys Restaurant in the future.
Great food good choice nice service comfortable surroundings and reasonable price. What more could we ask for a Sunday lunch! Would definitely recommend for a family outing.
