Diner Reviews
  • "Saturday evening booking, we were seated promptly, not rushed at all, with a knowledgeable waiter. all the food was good, some dishes pretty spicy. It's in a good location, easy to park. we didn't try the bar at the front although that looked OK too."

  • "Fourth visit to Eight Over Eight and again we had delicious food and friendly service. Would recommend."

  • "Fun place to go with friends with lively atmoshere and good service. Food was tasty and served quickly."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "We have been coming here for years and it is always consistently good. It works particularly well for 4 plus as you can all taste the full range on offer - most items meant for sharing - interesting blend of Asian fusion - the portion sizes are not large and the sauce with the tuna just didn't work. They also watered our malt whisky but quickly rectified. You will need £60 plus per head. Chose a booth as they are more private."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "The experience can be characterised as follows. The cocktails, starters and waiters are good. The main courses and wine list lack choice and imagination. The new management treat those who book through Opentable as goldfish, i.e. with no memory. Recently, one morning, we booked a table through Opentable for that evening. Within less than 2 hours, we received an unwelcome telephone call from the restaurant purporting to confirm the booking. This was unnecessary and intrusive: those who book through the internet do so precisely to avoid telephone conversations, otherwise why book through the internet? The point was lost to the managers, who could not have been more disparaging or condescending in their attitude. A place to avoid."

  • "Having eaten at 8 over 8 several times over the past couple of years the quality of the food and attention to detail has slowly declined and the menu needs to be updated."
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "This has become one of my favourites, great good, beautiful people and good service. The rose petal martini is my must have and it's consistently delicious. I tried the barbecued sea bass this time which was amazingly soft and tasty, lovely green curry and loved the pad Thai as always. Would be good to see a few more gravy based dishes which aren't curries but overall never disappoints and is a firm favourite."
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "Once upon a time, the food here was outstanding. Now they are relying on their reputation and the food is very mediocre. The chicken curry tasted as though it was coconut milk with lycee juice thrown in, no curry flavour at all, overly sweet and luke warm when served. The pork belly was tough and dry and everything else was dull and expected without any excitement. Sadly, after all these years, I have no desire to return. I should say the service was efficient and the atmosphere was good. Probably best to stick to cocktails and appetizers at the bar."
    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "This is a good choice of restaurants for dinner with friends. Helpful service and good food. On the pricey side, but good quality overall. Table for 2 are too close for business or romantic dinners!"
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Good menu, nice food. The level of service may vary. Not a particularly warm / accommodating welcome but attentive table service."
    dined on 07/05/2014
  • "eight over eight has regular knowledgable staff and great food at an affordable price in Chelsea.. We had not been for one year but the waitres remembered us! "
    dined on 30/04/2014
  • "A great Friday night for four. We ordered lots of different small plates which were all excellent especialy the pork belly and the sui mai. Mains were good although i think they should offer a better veg side selection. Coctails went down well and they changed our first (clearly corked) bottle of red with a reasonable amount of grace. "
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "Having eaten here many times I have to say the last visit was ruined by the service - such a shame as the food is delicious! Miserable girl working in the bar area! A really pleasant meet and greet gentleman but a rather "smart answers" women serving us at the table - bordering rude! Will return as they seem to have a fast turnover of staff - have had more good experiences than bad!"
    dined on 24/04/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the starters and the pudding but were really disappointed by the Pad thai and Green Curry! Would go back but would avoid main courses!"
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "As for the lunchtime set menu on weekdays. They don't give it to you unless you ask."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Went to Eight over Eight through the week with some friends and was really disappointed.. The food here has really slipped and is really over priced for what you are getting. We ordered a number of things off the dim sum menu, all of which were just average.. We also ordered some mains, which also were average. It is just sad as this place used to be amazing but everything seems to have slipped. It is embarrassing when you bring friends to a local place and it disappoints. A real shame.."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "Haven't been there in 2 years but different menu, still excellent quality of food and friendly and helpful staff. Worth spending that little bit extra."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "If I'm paying over £40 for two courses and wine I really don't expect the classic 'the food comes as it's ready, so it all comes at different times' line; fine for a quick lunch in wagamama's but not really acceptable here in my opinion. The food was really tasty but I just felt that it was not worth the money. Worst of all was the embarrassing level of up selling going on by the waitress, who hung around the table and tried to make us spend more money at every opportunity. Not sure if they work on commission?! To top all that off, she ran over the table as we were working out the bill and kindly reminded us not to include her £13 service charge! I'd go back for the Sunday 40% off offer, but on a normal evening I'd probably give it a miss."
    dined on 26/03/2014
  • "Had lunch here for the first time (usually come for dinner), the service was attentive without being intrusive, food excellent, there is a more limited menu at lunchtime but still has the amazingly fresh and delicious duck and watermelon salad. The room is lovely and light so a great place for lunch as well as dinner."
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "The food is good in general with only some dishes very good to exceptional. This time the sashimi was the best I've tasted. The cold sake was excellent. We were served by a miserable waitress, who suddenly disappeared leaving us to search for someone else to bring the bill. I have found the service generally good at Eight Over Eight, but at times the waiters/waitresses seem untrained and focused on bringing out food as fast as possible to release the tables giving you a feeling that making dinners happy is not a priority. It is still one of my favourite restaurants because I like ordering lots of different dishes to share. The cold sake was excellent and the chilli salt squid is very tasty."
    dined on 17/03/2014
  • "Just thought it was a bit load and hectic and for £60+ a head not cheap and really should have linen table clothes"
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "Waiter give too much attention, could have give more privatecy to customers."
    dined on 10/03/2014
  • "Nice place with good bar for drinks and very good food"
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "I love Eight over Eight and it has stayed on my favourites list for years - it is quite innovative in its menu and consistently delivers!"
    dined on 24/02/2014
  • "I have been to this restaurant several times and always had good, fresh food. This time, however, our main course of Prawn Phad Thai had to be returned as the noodles were either undercooked or overcooked. The dish was replaced but not much better the second time. Our starters of ribs and calamari were excellent."
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "It's been a few years since I last visited 8 over 8 and it didn't quite live up to my expectations. Food was generally good, though squid starter very chewy. There was still the same buzz about the place - packed at 7.30 when we arrived and they churn through the tables with their 2 hour max policy. This isn't a place where you can linger at your table. Waiting staff were quite irritating - it felt like they were pushing you to order more or the larger size, bigger glass etc. And when one waitress spilled a glass of red wine over the table she thought it was OK just to cover it up with a table of food. I asked for a new glass as it was dripping with red one, but it was obviously the same glass that came back having had a bit of a wipe."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "Love this place, great food, fab drinks & buzzing atmosphere. Perfect place to start our Friday night."
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "This is one of our favourite restaurants, the food is excellent and we like the decor after the fire. We usually order the excellent sweet shrimp, duck salad, black cod and the green curry. This time the waitress gave us a very detailed description of some other dishes and we tried a few new dishes as well. The service was outstanding, very friendly and we felt very pampered."
    dined on 29/01/2014
  • "Great neighborhood restaurant with a smart, casual style and excellent food and service."
    dined on 03/01/2014
  • "For a great meal in a pleasant environment, this restaurant has both."
    dined on 27/12/2013
  • "Cannot say enough good things about Eight over Eight. The food is absolutely delicious, the waiter was lovely and the ambience is perfect. Will be going back again and again."
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "We've been going to Eight Over Eight for a number of years now and our recent lunch (Monday) was great as usual. We like the dining room and the professional staff. On this particular occasion we needed a venue in Chelsea that wouldn't be too crowded, cramped or noisy (we were having a business meeting). Great cocktails, and light bites are always consistently great and beautifully presented. Our waiter was Alex, who made sure we felt very welcome and looked after. He's French and charming!"
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "The main reason to dine here is the amazing food, which comes in small servings so is perfect for any meal, either a light bite or a full dining experience. The ambience is one of chic, relaxed glamor with a buzzy but not noisy vibe. Great for a romantic dinner or a catch up with friends before heading out to dance!"
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "When in London I always dine in Eight over Eight --nothing better --never had a bad meal ! Food ,drink ,service ,ambience --always first class !!"
    dined on 06/12/2013
  • "Even though some of us were very late arriving we all got a warm, calm welcome. Our waiter was very helpful, the food superb and we managed to get through three bottles of excellent wine. Perhaps a little more explanation of the menu would have been useful. The music was unnecessarily loud since the place was packed and buzzing anyway but we all had a great time despite that. We all agreed that we would return and I was congratulated for finding such a great restaurant."
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "I had another delicious lunch at Eight Over Eight. The best thing on the menu is the Duck and Watermelon Salad that I order time and again. I can't wait to go back."
    dined on 22/11/2013
  • "Met with a friend at Eight over Eight for a bite to eat on Sunday night, and had a lovely evening. The food was OK, nothing out of this world sadly, however, have been here many times and it has been brilliant, so maybe just an off night! All in all would recommend, but it would be good to see some decent main meals back on the menu"
    dined on 17/11/2013
  • "If you are out for sushi somewhat limited choise on the menu. Food of excellent quality so is the service. The latter is somewhat expensive as menu prices are at high end, side charged separatly and service charge is an additional 12.5%. House champaine (42 GBP) not expensive but next time I'd go for a class higher. Overall I'd return and recommend EoE for excellent quality food."
    dined on 16/11/2013
  • "I have always enjoyed the food at Eight over Eight and did so on my last visit on Saturday 9th November. However, the service this time was a little haphazard, maybe because of the language difficulty of our waitress who was very pleasant but got the order wrong. For instance, a spritzer was ordered, but Champagne was brought! We shall return, as the food is so fresh and interesting and we have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant."
    dined on 09/11/2013
  • "I had lunch with two friends at Eight Over Eight the other day and as usual, the food was delicious. I always order the Duck and Watermelon Salad as it has to be one of the best items on the outstanding menu. It's a great place for lunch or dinner or just a drink and a snack. I can't wait to go back again."
