A platter of five varieties of sashimi at London's most overpriced restaurant will set you back £65.

While there are plenty of budget-friendly food options in England's capital, dining in some restaurants - and in some neighbourhoods - can come with a staggeringly steep price tag.

Harden's London Restaurants Guide for 2017, released Wednesday, revealed the results of its 26th annual survey of 7,500 regular restaurant-goers to determine not only which restaurants are the city's favourites, but also which are the most overpriced.

The guide's co-founder Peter Harden told Business Insider: "When people submit a restaurant nomination, they have an option of doing so in one of 18 categories. The categories include top gastronic experience, favourite restaurant and most overpriced."

The winners are then determined by the number of votes within each category.

With restaurants opening at the fastest rate ever over the past 12 months according to the guide, it's more important than ever to make sure you're getting the most for your pound when dining out.


The average price of dinner for one at the restaurants in the guide was also up by 1.7% to £51.37 this year, compared to £50.51 last year.

Despite this, Harden told Business Insider: "I don't think it's an overpriced city for eating out at all. Regularly people come to London from the sticks and say the prices are shocking, but it's nonsense. Even though costs here are high, the level of competition is so very intense and the market is so deep that most of the better value eating in the country is to be had in London."

Whether you're willing to splash out or budget dining is more your style, see which restaurants the city's foodies consider to be the most overpriced below - along with what you can expect to pay for some of their top dishes.
