Saska Graville has worked as a writer and editor for over 20 years, both in London and Sydney. She was the features editor of The Sun-Herald newspaper in Sydney, before moving to London as deputy editor of bestselling glossy magazine Red. Her latest book, London Style Guide (which you can win a copy of here) breaks the city down by village, and reveals the places that the locals love, featuring interviews with some of the Londoners behind the shops, cafes and hotels. We asked her to tell us where she'd choose to eat, from all that this amazing city has to offer.

The Chamberlayne

83 Chamberlayne Road, London NW10

"Maybe I'm biased because it's my local, but The Chamberlayne in Kensal Rise really does do London's best roast chicken. (Ok, definitely biased.) The steaks are pretty good too. And the prawn cocktail… Sunday lunch: Bloody Mary, steak and chips… perfect."

Granger & Co
175 Westbourne Grove, London W11

"I know it had mixed reviews when it first opened, but I had the most delicious dinner at Granger & Co last week. Between four of us, there wasn't a dud course. After living in Sydney for ten years, Bill Granger's cafes were a way of life, so I was over the moon when the London one opened. One complaint, you can't book - hate that."

Pizza East
56 Shoreditch High Street  London E1

"There are so many great places to eat in Shoreditch, but it's hard to beat Pizza East. Delicious thin crust pizzas, cool interior and first class people watching, I love it."
