    Poor service and this really brings this place down. We had to wait 20 minutes for cocktails however, our meal arrived within minutes of ordering (leading me to think it was just re-heated). Food however was good but they kept on bringing over the wrong dishes and also spilt some of our cocktail over my friend ! generally felt like we were at Faulty Towers ! I probably won't go back.

    Lovely decor, and nice staff - but I would not pay full price for what you get, booking through toptable and getting 50% off was what made it appealing. Portion sizes are quite small.

    I read all the reviews from supposedly previous customers who raved about the food as some of the best Chinese food in London and also saw the 50% off deal for last minute dining reservation.The food was mediocre, the ambience - no one in it--dark bleek and even hard to find. (The websites were stating there was only 1table left while in reality the whole restaurant was empty.) Anyway I thought i would get 50% off. But the manager said no they never offer that on any websites. The manager refused to honor the add on Table pouncers of 50% off even after he was caught in a lie of claiming that they didn't advertise 50% off on any website. Hopefully this review will help people not get swindled on vacation. This is a dishonest restaurant.

    Went for a Friday night dinner with my wife and came back disappointed. First of all, although the restaurant didn't look busy at all, it took good 20 minutes for our first drinks to arrive. When the food came, the soup was in the cheapest plastic bowl you could imagine, which was totally at odds with the chic decor of the place. The food was not impressive to say the least; for instance, you don't call your dumplings shao long bao if there is no soup in it.

    This place has really gone downhill. Its used to serve terrific Chinese food but we had stale crackers (twice), the wrong rice was brought and also tasted like it had been sitting around and the food generally certainly isnt worth the price. Go to Royal China (close by) every time instead. What a shame.

    We booked this restaurant through Toptable with 50% off. However, after eating it turned out that this offer (50%) is not available. Even today on toptable it is showing that this restaurant is offering 50% off for food. So I dont know it by Toptable or Seventeen but this offer is a catch.

    It's not my first time in Seventeen. I like to go there for dinner. I find the atmosphere very nice, overall in the basement floor. Excellent for a romantic dinner with your partner or someone you like. Food is very good. Dim Sum and Crispy Duck with the amazing souce are my favourite options.

    Excellent food in a lovely setting but service disappointing. Our main meals arrived about 10 minutes apart and when we were given the bill we waited half an hour for someone to come and take the payment. Good value for money especially with the 50% discount and happy hour cocktails. The sea bass was the best we've ever tasted. We would definitely return to Seventeen and recommend it to friends but hopefully the service will improve next time.

    In my experience Seventeen has the best cocktails in London! Our group of friends regularly head back here because we're guaranteed to have an enjoyable evening. The food never lets us down, although the steamed sea bass took a while to come, it was well worth the wait. We'll be returning soon.

    Dined on 3/7/2013
    We have often been past this restaurant saying that we should go in so we went here after work and the deal was 50% off of food so it was the perfect reason to go! We were sat on the ground floor of the restaurant and having seen the downstairs part of the restaurant, I would prefer to sit there next time as it had a cool ambience. There was 1 waiter looking after the 6 tables upstairs and he was outstanding! Very attentive and not in your face all the time. We ordered starters and dim sum and the food was some of the best dim sum we have tried! We had a lovely evening and I would highly recommend it!

  • 3rd time visiting, not a good idea
    3chinesegirls
    Dined on 3/7/2013
    It was the 3rd time visiting through Toptable at last minute. It's never a problem get a table. (Now i know why) Compare with last 2 times, this was not up for a standard. The food taste awful, had a dish mean to taste hot and spice, but there was hardly any taste inside. Sent it back to the kitchen, they only added some salt and brought it back. Had to cancel the dish in the end after a lot of negotiation. The staff doesn't seem to care what the food taste like either which is very disappointing for customers I will not return and will no longer recommend to any friends that likes chinese food.

    My overall experience as a first time diner was excellent the food was amazing the staff was friendly and all in all I had a good evening. However the restaurant itself was a bit cold as the air conditioning was a too high (personally preference of course standing). Also when they brought out our mains half the food went cold as we waited for our rice and noddles, and had to be sent back to be re heated quicker service in this area would be beneficial. The minor issues aside I would return to seventeen and would recommend to a friend.

    Dined on 23/6/2013
    Visited this restaurant for the first time for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was beautifully decorated but it was very quiet - the road-works outside the restaurant may have contributed to this. Despite having only 2 covers, the food was slow in coming and the waiter seemed more interested in the road outside that the custom inside. The food, when it arrived was very tasty and good value with the TT 50% off food offer.

    While the 40% deal was fantastic and meant we ordered lots of delicious dishes from the menu, the service was really disappointing. It was very slow, and the dishes for each course were not brought out at the same time. For example, in the main course, the noodles were brought out 10 minutes before anything else and were stone-cold once the other dishes arrived. And the egg-fried rice came 15 minutes after we had finished the main course! Apart from the service, the value is very good.

    I took my family there for a pre-theatre meal. There was barely any staff (or patrons for that matter). Could not find any staff upon entering however they were very friendly during the meal. Food was good. It was fine but not particularly memorable.

    The food was good value and done to a high standard but it was let down by the service. We were only a group of 7 and it felt like they had forgotten about us. It took a while to order and then when the food came it came out sparingly so the rice was pretty cold by the time the main dish came. 1 dish was forgotten and then I had to remind them twice that the dim sum dish hadn't come. They said it was being made from scratch so it took a little longer but then never turned up. I wouldn't go back as a big group but would probably go if it was just a table for 2.

    Seventeen was a good Chinese. However, without the offer (50% off) I would have found the standard of the food lower than the suggested price. The selection on the menu was varied, and it was a good atmosphere for either a relaxed dinner or group booking.

    Firstly the good I thought the food was very good and different from the usual fare from a Chinese Restaurant. In addition to this with the 40% off food offer I think it represented very good value for money. However whilst eating our mains which we were sharing between us the waiter came and took one of the dishes away obviously thinking we had eaten all that we had wanted, we had not! It would not have been difficult to ask if we had finished the dish and I do not expect to have to ask a waiter to retrieve food I was paying for. It was a shame that one incident had to sour a good meal.

  • Booked a table at last minute

    Dined on 4/6/2013
    Booked a table at last minute through TopTable for just 2 of us. The food came relevantly quick enough. As chinese myself, I wouldn't call it authentic. But it tasted fine. If I didn't get 50% off food bill through toptable, I think the price is a bit expensive. So definitely book through toptable to get the deal. There were some other reviews about bad service. But the service i received was quite good. The plus point is the decoration. There is very nice interior design inside, I liked the environment very much.

    My fourth visit to Seventeen has been disappointing. The service which is usually average was poor, we waited 30 minutes from sitting to receiving our drinks, food took some time to come and was very average. On previous occasions food was good especially with 50% TT offer, but after this visit we won't be returning, over priced, beautiful venue with poor service.

    I ate here with three others, whilst it was great value for money, (drinks were really expensive though) the service was disappointing. The waitresses were rude and unattentive, they messed up our order quite a few times meaning we had to send food back and wait around for it, we were rushed out of the restaurant which to be honest was a bit rich, given that the waitress/kitchen messing up our order was the reason why our meal was delayed. It was also SO hot in the downstairs area that it made it difficult to enjoy the meal - when we asked for the air conditioning to be turned on the waitress just looked at us and said 'cannot change'.

    Our soup starters were very good, unfortunately this didn't carry through to our main courses. My Kung Pao chicken was pretty average and my husband's pork, although flavoursome, had way too much fat. It started making him feel sick halfway through. Our main courses also came at different times - I had to wait at least 10 minutes before mine arrived!
