"A great spot for a relaxing lunch or drink"
Time Out, August 2013
With former ‘Christopher’s American Grill’ Head Chef Gary King at the lead, you can be sure that the food is going to be fantastic. Canal 125 was the winner of the ‘Best Food’ Shine award, received 4 out of 5 stars from Evening Standard’s Kate Spicer, and was one of the ‘Top 5 Places to go in London’ on photographer Rankin’s list. We are a 2014 recipient of the Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor®.
"Canal 125 is a real find. Tucked away unassumingly on Caledonian Rd, it's an ambient haven set over three floors, including a restaurant, bar and two terraces (one with stylish river views). The look is edgy and seductive at the same time. Rough, dark wood floors and big leather sofas are jumbled with pretty chandeliers and huge antique mirrors.
Chef Gary King hails from Christopher's, and his gorgeous Modern European menu is a delight. We loved the fabulously refreshing and moreish Smoked chicken 'bang bang' with cucumber and peanut chilli sauce, and the Salmon fishcakes (on baby spinach with a basil cream sauce) are worthy of obsession! This is, without doubt, some of the best value food in London. We're dying to go back and we're sure you will be too."
