Mr Chilly, North Harrow, London HA1

Evening RGLers! After last week's Good Beer Guide pub deluge, here's what's been happening everywhere else.

Our featured article is for Mr Chilly, who is neither an underprepared arctic explorer nor an anthropomorphised ice cream but a small North Indian restaurant near North Harrow station. Try the biryani!

We've got lots of new articles. Let's kick things off in Morden, with a branch of Wimpy and the Morden Hall Bookshop, which sells second hand books from an old National Trust building in the park. Up the Northern line a few stops is Vijaya Krishna, a South Indian restaurant in Tooting, while back down in the other direction there's Bamboo Basket, a Chinese/Malay tea shop and cafe in Epsom. Ram's in Kenton is a veggie (and Jain-friendly) Indian restaurant that has a buffet with unlimited puri (mmm, delicious carbs), while all the way over in Eltham, the Yak and Yeti does a reasonable lunch deal.

Of course there are some pub updates too: the Duke of York in Surbiton and the Albert Tavern in South Norwood (both owned by Greene King), the Cape bar in Wapping, the Cricketers pub in Croydon (great for tram watching), the Barley Mow in Epsom, the Villiers Arms in Oxhey (as confirmed last week, Oxhey is indeed a real place) and the Railway Tavern in Bexley. I judge it would be quite a challenge to create a (theoretical, even!) pub crawl to visit all seven of those in one day, even though you would be unaffected by the temporary closure of the Gospel Oak to Barking line (it's shut until next February).

Finally, some closures to report: Italian restaurant Tentazoni has moved from Bermondsey to Notting Hill, while the Charlotte in Crayford, the Dover Castle (a Sam Smith's) in Marylebone and the branch of Spirited Wines in Putney have all closed.

Hello all

Welcome back to another week at your Randomness Guide, London edition.

Po Cha, Waterloo, London SE1

The featured article this month is Po Cha, SE1 7RG, a small Korean restaurant out the back of Waterloo station, relocated from St Giles High St. If you can fit in, you'll enjoy the bibimbap.

Four additions are: Melucci's Italian sandwich shop in Bexley; Cafe Spice Nigerian restaurant in Peckham (meat and stew are your meals there); Brazil's Cafe in Chesham (attractive building, not too much meat in their salt beef sandwich, also it's in Chesham); and the Jasmine Thai Kitchen also in furthest-flung Chesham (patchy but efficient).

There's a significant update to The Gamekeepers Lodge pub in Chesham, where sleeping dogs lie.

We've heard that Chimes restaurant/bar in Pimlico has closed.

Finally, note the new address for Mamuska! Polish canteen, which is no longer in the Elephant Shopping Centre.
