    Everything was great, we were seated straight away, food and drinks arrived in reasonable time, no complaints and food was obviously good! The groups only issue (there were 6 of us) was the atmosphere and problems outside BK in Brixton. The security were unnecessarily aggressive towards someone who tried to sneak inone of which was very immature shouting about the guys mum and doing sex actions

    Good experience, as always in Blues Kitchen! Food is amazing. Maybe the ribs are a bit too fat for my taste, but the BBQ sauce makes up for it. The portions are big. Recommended!

    The booking was easy to make via OpenTable. Don't get confused when you receive a book confirmation via SMS text message, with the date sent in US format, MM/DD/YYYY, rather than UK format DD/MM/DDDD. Initially this confused me to the point I called to confirm my booking. I wasn't sure which menu to look at as the website doesn't say which one is used for which time periods.. I read the Brunch menu as I didn't know when the Dinner menu became active... 4pm onwards it would seem. burgers we very nice and petite.. good quality patties with a brioche bun. cocktails very nice and strong. perhaps a little too much ice?

    The 'wings and things' platter used to be bigger and much more value for money - I thought it would follow the same pattern but was a little disappointed at the portion size. Nonetheless, the ambiance of the restaurant, service and live music was brilliant.

    The food is absolutely flavourless which was a shame because it looked very nice. The service was good with my host. However my waiter didn’t seem to want to wait on black women. She ignored us continuously while waiting on the two tables either side which made the experience even more underwhelming. Cocktails are nice but I wouldn’t go again.

    The staff here never fail to be the best. From the minute you walk through the door. Friendly, fun, and great service, even in very busy periods. Drinks and food are delicious. Good value for money particularly as you get large portions, and deals on drinks. However, it's mainly the staff that have me and my friends coming back. Oh and not forgetting the great music

    I've been coming here a lot over the years, I always love it and everyone I take does! Such a friendly, professional, casual service from the team. This city is known for not the best restaurant experiences no matter the budget. This place stands out! A Soho location would be sick in the future!

    We had a fantastic experience yesterday - a birthday lunch where nothing was too much trouble. It was early in the day so fairly quiet but we enjoyed the good food and drinks. Kindness shown by the staff to the birthday girls was much appreciated and we’ll definitely be back. Thank you!

    We picked Blues Kitchen as a place to eat before going to the Academy to see a band after reading other customer reviews. The atmosphere and decor was wonderful, our waiter was really attentive and offered some great suggestions for food and drink, which was all beautifully presented, colourful, delicious and not expensive. The waiter was constantly checking subtly where people were with their meals and making sure we had everything we needed. All the staff were friendly and helpful and we had a great experience. I can't rate this place highly enough. It was superb. Thank you for a lovely time.

    The staff are always so nice at Blues kitchen. Handled allergies really well and we're very friendly and professional. The food came out so fast but was hot a fresh even though it was pretty busy. Staff checked if we were enjoying the meal but weren't coming over too often. 10/10
