Sketch is one of the most famous restaurants in London by virtue of its toilets, which sums up everything you need to know about this naff Mayfair restaurant. Its upstairs dining room is home to three Michelin stars (whatever that means) but its Gallery room is the one most people flock to for herd mentality reasons. The food is experimental in a rummage-through-the-fridge-at-3am type of way and, typically, charges you an arm and a leg for the displeasure of it. As far as waste-of-time dining experiences in London go, this may well be the worst.
