5 Authentic Restaurants in Reading to Satisfy Any Taste!

If you’ve never been to Reading, be prepared to meet people from all walks of life! Our diverse population is reflected in the huge variety of cuisines and authentic restaurants in Reading. Our serviced apartments in Reading are perfectly positioned so that you can sample some of the finest cuisines in the UK without the need to stray too far. Here are some of our favourite authentic restaurants in Reading:

House of flavours (5-min walk)

The aptly named house of flavours is just 5-minutes’ walk from PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments in Reading and does what it says on the tin. Instead of the commercial Indian food we are using to in the UK, House of Flavours offers a better range and more authentic Indian cuisine in a comfortable and traditionally decorated restaurant. They serve a menu filled with a variety of tried and trusted favourites combined with the more exotic flavours in their signatures Karahi Chicken and the Murgh Malai Tikka.

Pepe Sale (3-minute walk)

While Italian food is popular all over the world, especially the old favourite’s; pizza, lasagne and pasta, Pepe Sale enjoys a more authentic type of Italian cuisine. The UK’s only Italian Sardinian Restaurant, Pepe Sale is run by a Sardinian native whose passion for his grandmothers’ recipes is evident on every plate. The menu features some authentic Sardinian specialities that many have never heard of let alone tasted before eating here like. Their house special – Pane Carasatu, or their speciality slowly roasted suckling piglet needs to be tasted to be believed. Pepe Sale is a must-visit for Italian food lovers.

Oishi (20-minute walk)

It’s a bit of a walk from PREMIER SUITES Reading but once you get to Oishi you’ll feel like you were transported to the best sushi joint in Japan. This small understated Japanese restaurant has a large menu with something for all tastes, even if sushi isn’t to your taste. They offer a range of menu items including ramen, teriyaki, katsu, sushi, yakitori, teriyaki, miso soup and desserts all made by hand by their talented Chefs. One of the most impressive things about Oishi apart from the food is the patient and efficient service offered by staff on every visit.

China palace (6-minutes’ walk)

One of the most popular restaurants in reding is just 6-minutes walking from PREMIER SUITES Reading and is well worth a visit if you like Chinese food. They serve a lot of Szechuan food that is cooked to order. And if you are a fan of Dim Sum, you’re in luck as they have an entire Dim Sum menu! They do not serve alcohol but are happy for you to bring your own. It’s frequented by British people and Chinese natives, which, in our opinion, is the best sign of an authentic Chinese restaurant.

Thai/Pan Asian:
Coconut Bar & Kitchen (3-minutes’ walk)

One of our close neighbours just happens to be one of the top-rated Asian restaurants in the city with an award-winning cocktail bar to boot. They specialise in Oriental foods and the kitchen is full of fresh flavours, vibrant ingredients and creative cooking. The chefs have extensive training and knowledge in South East Asian cuisine, including Thai, Korean, Chinese and Japanese. Each of their gorgeously presented cocktails is prepared by their experienced Mixologists with lots of love and attention. If you like Asian fusion, Coconut Bar is the best place in Reading to experience it.

The Lyndhurst Arms (10 minutes’ walk):

From the exotic tastes of Asia back to the traditional foods of Great Britain. There is nothing quite like the taste of home, especially when you enjoy our great quality local produce in a traditional pub like The Lyndhurst Arms. Their food is cooked to order using only the freshest local ingredients. Being a pub, they not only have a good selection of the usual suspects, but they also have a great range of local beers and wines.
