    Any recommendations for Kyoto pls? Many places appear to have very few reviews.

    For anyone getting the card now, I wonder if the dinning credit will continue into 2025, if not then the card is no longer worth it for me.

    Any recommendations for Mexico City and/or Cancun? There is a suprising range of restaurants available, compared to say nearby Miami.

    The wife and I went to Fred’s Seafood and Raw Bar in Cancun in October, and both the food and service were absolutely incredible. Would highly recommend.

    If you were to go to San Angel Inn it’s right next door to the Frida Kahlo/Diego Rivera studio (not FK’s house) which you don’t need to pre-book (unlike the house) and if you go at a weekend, the San Antonio market is full of interesting things as well as live music and lots of cafés in the square.

    Not on the Plat list, but we like Arango (also for lunch, great food and it’s on a high floor with views over Republic monument) and Raíz. On the Plat list, avoid Azul.

    Does anyone know how a refund would affect the credit? Would you effectively get the allowance back to use at another restaurant ?

    Booked something online and paid, got the Amex credit already.

    Sorry, can’t answer your question, but where did you book, out of curiosity? Didn’t think paying online would work tbh.

    Yes you do it might not happen automatically but you can raise a claim if it doesn’t.

    For those spending their credit at the Ivy – register your card at the BA estore where it’s 5 Avios per £1.

    Do not bother with mimi at the river house Singapore. I wanted somewhere relatively non “fancy schmancy” for the family, this place seemed to fit the bill…

    It was absolutely pants. Wouldn’t have fed that crap to my dog. Considering what you can get in Singapore for just a few quid it was absolutely pathetic.

    I am still having trouble deciding between Chinese cuisine options in London.
    Hakkasan seems to be a popular choice but I saw mixed reviews recently. The other Chinese options I consider are Yauatcha, Hutong and Tattu.
    Is anybody able to compare these places based on recent visits?

    We love Hakkasan and Yauatcha. They both belong to the Tao group iirc.

    Hakkasan lost its star but we were happy after our last trip few days ago.

    Halkassan is great I’d pick it over Tattu but Tattu is in no way a bad shout
