Diner Reviews
  • "Ambience excellent , had to wait for 10 minutes although reserved the table for 9pm. Members of staff were very polite and nice , although my drink arrived late, after wonderful starters I wanted to cancel my main , one of the waiter told me that duck has never been ordered. When my partner's main course arrived manager ( I assume) asked me if I don't want the main for sure as they actually made it . Chips arrived at least 5 minutes after the steak was delivered so we had to wait for it. At the end they charged us for the duck, waiter apologised , we checked the bill again and they charged us extra wine glass. So overall great food, great ambience, staff were friendly but not as efficient as you would expect for this type of restaurant"

  • "We had the tasting menus and added some extra dishes absolutely delicious lots of choice in the tasting menus and the only dish that had any negative comments was the monk fish our waitress was excellent as was the whole evening will be returning soon!"

  • "I had been wanting to visit Chino Latino for some time and I can only say that my expectations of the venue were fully and overly met. The immediate very pleasant welcome from front of house was very sincere and made us feel so very welcome. The ambiance of the dining area would be hard to judge on a realistic basis as this was an early Sunday evening meal ,as such not a good time to pass a valid comment, however I would like to return at a busier time to feel the true vibe of the place that I'm sure exists. We chose one of the taster menus which in no way is understated. Every dish was served with such great perfection and a very descriptive explanation of the beautiful food. All in all I would recommend Chino Latino to all."

  • "We dined here on a Saturday night - the food and cocktails were lovely and the service impeccable. Overall a great experience!"

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in london for a number of reasons. Great service, where you are always remembered by staff, excellent sashimi and sushi and a lovely restaurant. Soon to move to the 1st floor of the Riverside Plaza to give diners a view over the Thames. A great hotel bar too."

  • "Having been to the Chinos in Leeds a few times and loved it, I booked here for a special occasion on a visit to London. The food did not disappoint and the service was good but the experience was tainted by the restaurant itself, which was soulless and more like a hotel restaurant than reflecting the standard of food. The restaurant in Leeds has a wonderful dark and cosy feel whereas this one felt less intimate and pleasant. Such a shame as the food is so good but the atmosphere really let the experience down."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "I took my husband here for his birthday. We loved the food, ended up ordering 2 lots of starters and no main although the main options looked good. Food and drink was brill! Service was a bit slow at times but overall didn't ruin the experience for us. They brought out a specially decorated cheesecake for hey husbands birthday which was a lovely touch to end to the evening. Brill location right by the river. We went on London eye after. Great experience!"
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "We booked as a group of 6 and were encouraged to choose one of the tasting menus - we chose 'Rengin' and were not disappointed. The starters and small dishes were delicious mouthfuls, especially the scallops and dumplings, followed by the tender steak and superbly flavoured sea bass. Dessert was a well presented platter of fresh fruit and ice creams which soon disappeared! Whilst the area the restaurant is located is not that inviting, once inside the staff made us very welcome and were attentive throughout. Cool decor inside, but as half empty lacked atmosphere for a Friday evening. Good value for money"

  • "Went to Chino Latino's for a romantic meal with my husband on a weekend break in London, both the food and service were fantastic, the wating staff were attentive and knowledgeable. We chose the taster menu and enjoyed everything that was served especially the Chilean Sea Bass and the Steak on Hot Rocks both of which were truly delicious. Would look forward to going back again and trying other dishes on the menu."

  • "Average Pan Asian food although my guest enjoyed her Sushi. Very much a casual hotel dining experience. The staff were particularly good and helpful."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Interesting food, although the portion sizes are a little strange. It is a sharing concept, so we ordered four small dishes and two main dishes to share amongst two of us. The small plates were huge. Very tasty though and the tempura was particularly good. Wonderful service from a sweet waitress called Darcy. She overheard my daughter saying it was my birthday and produced a dessert at the end of the evening, complete with candle, and insisted on singing at the top of her voice. Very nice touch from a friendly and pleasant girl."

  • "I'm a bit puzzled as to why Chino Latino isn't more well-known. The food is top notch, with a good mix of classic flavour combinations and more surprising pairings. I always find wine-matching tricky with pan-Asian menus, but at least the wine list will have something to cater to every taste, without going over the top. Staff are attentive, friendly and efficient. This helps create an atmosphere which is more relaxed and less pretentious, for the lack of a better word, compared to places like Hakkasan or Novikov. That said, something about the Chino Latino ambience feels a bit off. I can't quite put my finger on it, but the venue somehow gives off a vibe of being any average hotel restaurant rather than the special place it actually is."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "The real Stuart had a lovely ambience in rich dark red colours and modern furnishings as well as being spacious. Good venue for a nice meal, a date etc. Dinners were dressed in a mix either smart casual or business suits. The food was amazing. We went for one of the 5 course set menus and it was beautiful on the plate the flavours were divine. Top class food, worth every penny. Very helpful waiters."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Tasty dinner, the portions in the tasting menu were just too large and this meant that we were unable to enjoy the main course to the full."

  • "service, food choice and layout are all amazing. Great choice of cocktails and nice ambiance in the evening "

  • "We booked via Opentable. The initial contact with the Maitre D was pleasant and we were asked if we wanted a drink in the bar area first. When we did sit down fro diner, the waiter was pleasant and helpful in taking our order. The food came very quickly and was a lot more than we expected and we struggled to eat the starter. The quality of the food was very good. Highly recommend it, but don't order to much otherwise you will not be able to have the mains, which we did not do. the Restaurant got busy and we felt we had been forgotten about, but when we did get the waiters attention, he did apologise and was quick to take our next order. Overall enjoyed the food and the ambience. Very appealing as a couple or for a group of friends. "

  • "Chose Chino Latino based on favourable reviews and was not disappointed. Had a tasting menu and every item was well presented and delicious. The waitress was very friendly and service throughout the restaurant and bar was excellent. Would not hesitate to recommend and to return when back in London "

  • "I hadn't been to chino Latino for about 3 years, but the food the other night was as good as I remembered it . Our waitor was friendly and helpful and we had a very enjoyable evening. "
    dined on 29/05/2014
  • "Wonderful PanAsian food in a nice environment. Had a set menu with delicious food. The monk fish tail was perfect! Nice staff, and our Argentinian waiter Gabriel was in good control even though there were many guests to attend. "
    dined on 22/05/2014
  • "Each time I've been to this restaurant it has been an amazing experience.The ambience, the service, the staff, the food are of excellent quality. our waitress Dany was very attentive without being over the top. We had plenty of time to sit and relax. Thank you Chino Latino"

  • "Went there for dinner with friends as it got some outstanding reviews on trip advisor. Location is ok, nothing special though the bar has a kind of nice atmosphere. The restaurant itself would from an architectural point of view not hit any bestseller list. Service was fine and friendly, but one shouldn't ask for advice on the wine to choose as the waiter could not suggest the right wine which would go best with the meal taken. The food was nicely presented and nice to look at which made it even more tastier. As I just said, the taste was really good, but the quantity served was limited. Not that we are big eaters, but price/quality-quantity was definitely not justified here. All in all, an average experience...unfortunately! "
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "After reading some of the previous reviews I was expecting a culinary extravaganza. The food was a bit hit and miss however. Some stuff was pretty good, however the wagyu beef tacitos were average at best. You could not taste the beef at all as it was smothered in guacamole - nicely presented but a total waste of great ingredients. Service was great however. With 25% off it was ok value. Not a patch on Nobu like one review suggested!!! "
    dined on 14/05/2014
  • "I really think this place is better than Nobu... been here 3 times.... the food is amazing - tasting menu for two is superb... they will mix and match... shame it's so far away from west end."
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "What a wonderful evening we had. Service was fabulous and the food to die for. We went for the taster menu and each dish was a complete taste explosion...... A total delight and we will definately be back."
    dined on 24/04/2014
  • "We had the tasting menu, which got better and better. Scallops were the highlight, but everything was good - even making beetroot, which I hate, passable. Desserts were beautifully presented, and service was smart, professional and neither obtrusive nor unavailable. The room is great, but, maybe inevitably for a largish hotel on the south bank, there were several single tourists dressed down and not adding to the ambiance nearby. It used to be good value when they had several toptable offers here - now it's more of a special occasion. Still, this was faultless on the important things."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "This is hands down the best food I've had in London. It's not too often that I get to go to places as expensive (and I'm saying it's not worth it's value!), but I do try to get out often to try new things. Chino Latino is excellent. I wouldn't stay in the hotel as a guest where it is, but I think the hotel is awfully lucky to have such a great hotel inside... In fact, the ambience and the service is so nice, you really do forget you're in a hotel at all as soon as you are seated. My mother was visiting London from Los Angeles and LA being a place where there is a LOT of pan-Asian food, this took the cake! I can't wait to save my pennies and go back..!"
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "I went here on a works night out. And have to say the food is incredible..... Genuinely better than Nobu and a lot cheaper. Not the easiest of venues to get to if doing other 'west end' things. But a real taste sensation. The lobster is a must"
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Book Chino Latino and order the tasting menu. You won't regret it. Amazing as always. Seafood to die for!"

  • "Staff were very attentive food was amazing quiet enjoyable evening, everyone enjoying their time spent. "
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "Presentation is never a disappointment. Every dish has it's own flair! The three times we have been here we have had a selection of sushi and our favourite, the duck! The staff are very helpful and professional. This is one of our favourite place to eat in London!"
    dined on 06/04/2014
  • "Great tasting food, though portions were on the small side. Cocktails were inventive and delicious. Service was excellent, attentive and knowledgeable waiter. Location is just not that great so restaurant was pretty empty (especially for a Friday night) and only livened up when a group who I can only assume were staying in the hotel entered the neighbouring bar."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "This restaurant is like a hidden gem, being part of a hotel. We had the tasting platter, which is usually for 2 however having 3 guessed they were very flexible and made it for the 3 of us. Every one of the many courses had a wow factor, leaving us speechless at how awesome each course was. The best was the dessert which was an array of tasting experiences. Will be going back again and having mains as the blackened salmon was to die for."
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "Chino Latino has been my favourite restaurant for many years now. The food is delicious and the service is great. I will be back soon!"
    dined on 11/03/2014
  • "I chose Chino Latino as a place to go during a weekend London visit with my Mum and sister. Their online reviews seemed excellent, and rightly so. There were 5 of us in our party, and from the moment we approached the front door, we knew it was going to be a special experience. The staff are extremely welcoming and attentive; the décor and ambience are sophisticated and stunning; the menu is extensive and intriguing. We enjoyed cocktails first; then chose one of the tasting menus and were delighted by all the different dishes brought to our table. This is the perfect venue for a special occasion, but if I lived in London I would eat here extremely regularly, special occasion or not!"

  • "Took my boyfriend here as I had driven by a few times and was curious about the restaurant. Saw a few reviews and thought I should take him to try it on his birthday. Bonus for me as I was looking to spend a bit on his meal anyway but they had a winter offer which would be £20 off every £60 spent on food. So why not go beast mode and eat til we feel sick haha. Anyway the virgin cocktails were amazing. Amazing kind staff who were aware of the birthday and helped me with little things like being discreet about the deal, setting up a birthday dessert and message. Was such a lovely meal, food was good and sushi was so fresh and presented beautifully. Thank you for a lovely nice evening everyone."
    dined on 04/02/2014
  • "Went out as a group of 6 and found the whole experience fantastic. Everyone really enjoyed the food, with the steak on the hot rocks a favorite with the all. Only one draft beer but plenty of cocktails and wine for everyone to enjoy. Would highly recommend dining here as a group or a romantic night out."
