For dads who love...Indian cuisine

Jamavar Mayfair

If your dad loves Indian food, then Jamavar is the place to be. Known for its pan-Indian cuisine and decor as exquisite as the food, the fine dining restaurant on Mount Street is presenting a tasting menu dedicated to founder Samyukta Nair’s father and grandfather for Father's Day. The restaurant was created by the founding family of the Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts in India, who have Jamavar's in India, London and Doha. The London restaurant earned a Michelin star in 2022. The Father's Day menu is available from 16th-18th June.

For dads who love... whiskey

Park Chinois

We're not sure what sounds more appealing; the whiskey flights or the dark chocolate cigar filled with chocolate mousse and caramel and served with vanilla ice cream over dry ice.... 

The fine dining restaurant is a go-to for A-star chinese food in London, therefore the addition of a decadent dessert and/or whiskey tasting is the icing on the cake. Raise a glass (or four) with either Macallan Oak, 18yo or 25yo, Yamazaki 2022 Cask series or Suntory 100 Year Anniversary. It will be hard for dad not to have a good time.
