Bodega negra is a fantastic mexican in Old Compton street. The outside of the restaurant  is an eyeopener and you have to book in advance, but if you pop in to its Cafe side on Moor street you can experience similar food. You could also try some Indian specialities in Dishoom or Tamarind Kitchen or try some French Cuisine in Pierre Victoria at the top of Dean street or its sister restaurant Prix Fixe at the start.
