My Hot Dinners - Colin Jackson picks his favourite London restaurants

colin jackson

Colin Jackson is an Olympic medal winner, world record holder for the 60m hurdles, Strictly dancer and will be commenting on the 2012 Olympics. He's also, as Hot Dinners found out, an unbelievably nice guy. We jogged alongside Jackson and in-between gasping for oxygen, got him to tell us his favourite places to eat in London.

"I'm a lover of Asian food and I always look for Asian restaurants whether they're fusion or modern ones, so my top three will all be Asian."

Nobu Berkeley
15 Berkeley St, London W1

"I love Nobu because of the really fine cuisine that you have there. I'm a person who doesn't mind spending money on good food. If the quality isn't good or I don't enjoy the service than I'd never go back. Nobu Berkeley is great and I enjoy the atmosphere there as well."

66 South Audley Street, London W1

"It is to me the most exquisite Chinese food you would ever eat. Unbelievable. I was lucky enough to go in and taste absolutely everything on the menu and that was a special moment in time for me! The signature dish I loved there was wasabi king prawns in a wasabi sauce and it was delicious."

Asia de Cuba
44 St Martin's Lane, London WC2

"I love it because it's a real fusion restaurant and it's somewhere where you share your food. You've got to have the Mexican doughnuts to finish off your meal - they're superb! But if you're worried about calories, I'd leave them alone."

Observer food critic Jay Rayner: "I sneak off to this small, unassuming place."
