I think Battersea Power Station is one of London’s best newest editions, and it’s newest food hall makes it even more so.

The cool new dining spot Arcade is the second one in London, with the first being in Tottenham Court Road.

It’s got 500 seats, with 13 different cuisines and two bars – Tap Room and ABC bar.

Tap Room has a wall of 36 taps, serving cocktails and beers from international and south London breweries, where ABC Bar is a more concise offering of well-known cocktails.

The brands exclusively include Phed Power – fiery food from Issan, Thailand, Siu Siu which is Cantonese comfort food, Leccami Gelato and Flat Bread by Thomas Straker – and the order-from-your-phone and table service style of the hall means you can mix and match whichever ones you want.

There’s no need to book unless you’re in a group of 12+, which makes it the perfect place to pop into after a shop or activity at the Power Station.

I went on a Thursday evening and it was busy enough to have a buzzing atmosphere but not too rammed to get a table.

The interior was really incredible, and it merges the glamour of the roaring 1920s with Brutalist 1950s mid-century style.

There are items reclaimed from the original Power Station, like light fittings, isolators and oak timber flooring.

It has a cool, retro vibe and it’s the perfect hangout for dates, birthdays, after-work or a quick bite to eat with friends.

As a lover of Japanese food, I ordered most of my meal from Sushi Kamon, but I also couldn’t resist a flatbread from Thomas Straker.

I got the tomato, stracciatella and basil one – and wow.

It was like a mini pizza, but better.

There was so much tomato, and so much cheese, and so much dough – it was heavenly and felt so indulgent.

It was also really filling and definitely could have sufficed on its own if I hadn’t have decided I needed most of Sushi Kamon’s menu as well – oops!

I tried the salmon and tuna sushi sets, and the crispy rice and salmon which were all really fresh tasting.

Again, the portions were really generous which is always something I like.

My boyfriend tried a few different bits from a few different menus, including the pork carnitas taco and a beef short rib bao.

He absolutely loved the mixture of options, and all of it was really good food as well.

It arrived quickly, and it was really useful to be able to add to the order just by using a phone.

Arcade is a fun, suitable-for-all addition to Battersea Power Station and it gives me even more reason to keep going back there.
