    excellent & charming service but the food was slightly overcooked and-d over spiced with tones of curry powder.... portions for the caramelised pork is ridiculously small for a main... We have known E&O in Kings road for years and the quality of the cooking has been going down I am afraid... And a little bit of variation on the menu would not hurt.....

    I love E&O the food is great and the bar is fantastic.. plus they do great cocktails... However, it is awfully boring to be reminded that your booking is only until 9pm (when you book for 7pm) We are aware of it... there's no need to be reminded 4x times in a row... which is what happened on the last two occasions I have been there

    The service was awful !!! I live in the area and come to the restaurant regularly. However, the last experience was terrible : 30 min after being seated, the waitress told us , that we needed to leave in half and hour as the table was booked. We disagree, it was a mistake from her. She came back and say , you can stay an other 1hour and half . Then we asked 3 times for a bottle a wine and it took 1 hour for her to bring it to the table. And at the end, she said :" Do you really want a bottle , now you have to leave in 30 min as the table is booked after you." Oh My god, is that a joke... And then they expect that you leave a tip!

    I'm always happy when a restaurant in London accepts reservations for 2 and with the reviews of this place being so strong it made sense to meet a friend here for dinner. We had delicious cocktails and a big selection of dim sum and chatted away happily. Our waitress was excellent fun and really looked after us and there were plenty of other staff around bringing out the various plates of food food fresh from the kitchen. I will definitely come here again.

    Anyone who knows how to do a perfect ceviche is alright in my book. But the amazing dim sum, the caramelised pork or even the jasmine rice I didn't know it can taste that good, and everything garnished with an impeccable service made our evening nothing short than amazing.

    I have been to Eight Over Eight but this was my first time at E&O. It's pretty much a carbon copy except for the name. We went on a Friday night as 3 couples. The music was pumping, the cocktail shakers flying and the crowd generally very easy on the eye. Nonetheless this did not detract from the food, which was very good with a solid delivery by our waitress. At £50 a head, including 2 bottles of wine, we were also presently surprised by the value.

    Outstanding food (the duck gyozas were fantastic!), however a couple of things to be prepared for: 1) We went on a Saturday night and were seated close to the bar area. The music was rather loud and at times we found it difficult to hear each other 2) A little overpriced - we spend £90 between 2 (including drinks but without wine). I still felt a little hungry afterwards as the portions are small 3) Service was adequate but we were left waiting quite a long time on a couple of occasions, which was strange given that the restaurant was only half full. All in all an average experience, but I doubt I'd go back!

    I have eaten in this restaurant many times, but not for about a year. The meal was a disaster, the food was either burnt or over cooked. If we had our way we would have sent back all of our food, it was embarrassing enough that we sent back 2 dishes. We will never go back.

    Going to any restaurant should not only be about food- but service, ambience and value for money. During my recent visit with my girlfriend on saturday 15th february 2013.First of all it seemed that only the preferred customers/ clientele were given the opportunity to give their coats and jackets in the wardrobe-not a good start. Most surprising of all service was slow and inattentive- Not once were we ever asked about if we liked the food- waiting for the dessert menu and actually ordering took over 15 minutes - so we passed on this. Even if the main meal was good- the service and ambience were very poor. I won't be attending again as there are many other places worthy of my money.

    The food was perfect and that is the main and only reason I go there. Ambience is cosy, but nothing really special. Service is there and they are quick but we felt that the service was very mechanic: we where all the time directed towards the pricier options (e.g. the waiter had only tried the expensive wine); we had to leave exactly 2h after the booking time and they where already dishing up for the next batch as we where getting ready. In other words, no personal touch. You eat, you pay and you go. By the way, the cheapest bottle of red wine was really good and fit really well with the food. =P

    I forgot how different this place is on a Friday night. Great for people who are moving to the bar after but it all just feels too loud and too seedy. The food was mostly excellent tho the Singapore noodles had an overpowering smokey flavour and the Asian slaw lacked delicacy. We'll stick to lunch times...

    We have eaten at E&O many times over the last 7 years or so and have never been disappointed. The food and drinks are very good and the staff is very friendly. We also had meals with friends and their children and E&O has always been accommodative and child friendly. After dinner the busy (but not too busy) bar is great too.

    Hadn't been to E&O for aeons so was delighted to have the opportunity to return at the weekend with some neophytes. We were not disappointed. Our strategy of focusing on shared plates (or starters as they were called when I were a young lad) was also a success. Standout dishes were the black & prawn cod shu mai, the crispy pork belly and the spicy tuna roll. We were quite restrained on the wine front although, like many places these days, there wasn't much to choose from below the £30 mark. Glad to see that the ambiance has not diminished over the years - the place still has a fun vibe (but manages to resist the temptation of turning the music up too loud so that diners have to shout to make themselves heard). A reliable Notting Hill staple

    Dined on 5/12/2013
    The restaurant has very good ambiance and I consider it to be a rather expensive restaurant where one expects the relevant service and quality of food. The later was very good, the former needs some more work. In more detail, the kitchen burned the food of one of our guests so we had to wait to be re cooked. Although the waiter-maitre was polite and even "funny" about it, in such occassions and in such restaurants, it should be expected that they offer the customers a further complimentary staster or wine to compensate for their mistake and the additional waiting of the customer.
