There are plenty of flashy new options for dinner around the Shard and Borough Market, but Turkish restaurant Tas has been cooking some of the most reliably good food in this neighbourhood for ages. It’s a casual, homely spot that serves light mezzes and satisfying mains like moussaka and slow-cooked lamb shank. Despite the abundance of lamb on the menu, Tas is actually very good for vegetarians and anyone with dietary restrictions – and it’s also great for big group bookings and your sister’s screaming kids.
