    My experience at this restaurant was terrible, hence I can give nothing more than 1 star. Deceitful staff, management lying to customers, subpar food, bad atmosphere. I came here for a special occasion meal with my sister on the 3rd August, a lovely summer day. We were seated immediately by a friendly host. We then received our nice starters in good time, great mocktail and cocktail, and had very high hopes for the rest of the meal. The server we had at first obviously clocked out and a new server was with us from the time we got out main course. The steak, smothered in sauce, was dry, hardly edible, bland besides the sauce - the "salad" was very odd and I could barely eat more than a nibble of the tough leaves. The chips were the only thing I could stomach from my main - my sister enjoyed her rice and chicken but also stated it would've been very dull if not for the hot sauce. The worst part of the meal came when the server came 3 times to take payment. She took a very long time to do so and even had the gall to yawn whilst we were trying to work out the bill split. She had added, on her own accord, 12.5% service to the table of 2 even though the menu states this will only be added to tables of 6 or more - I read this later online and got in touch with the management to complain about it, who told me (falsely) that because West Ham had had a match that day, they expected it to be busy so all tables added service charge and that this was "clearly stated on the menu" - it isn't. The most ridiculous excuse to try to cover up for deceitful staff, by being deceitful? Poor form, management. So the staff and management are deceitful, the food subpar and service is bad. We would have left a tip anyway but the lies and deceitful nature of service here left a bitter taste.

    I had booked Cabana after seeing good reviews however, my experience was good but not great. The staff were friendly to start with but it became hard to get their attention despite sitting by the tills and not being far from the door but they would typically be chatting at the door hence the reason we couldn't get their attention. Food was good but not amazing. Difficult to eat healthy and also if you have any intolerance as most things are fried and in the same oil. Also value for money isn't great in comparison with more accommodating restaurants out there.

    First time users of this restaurant and booked cold off internet as pre-theatre base for Theatre Royal, around ten minutes walk away. Decent enough place but essentially all meals boiled down to mince, black beans and rice in some sort of wrap.

    Our waiter was so friendly and helpful, the food I got was not great because the chicken was thigh piece and not breast which was not stated on the menu. My friend really enjoyed her food she got a burrito. For dessert definitely recommend the Nutella filled mini dough balls and the cocktails are yum!

    Absolute awesome venue, I booked it for my birthday with my family. They had never had Brazilian food before and it didn't disappoint. The menu selection was great, kids menu was a bit bland for my youngest though. The music was just what I had hoped for, amazing verity of old and new. Rum cocktails were strong so don't drive if you can and the expresso was the best I have ever had. I will definitely be going back.

    Very unimpressed, main meal arrived before our starters. We also had a large group sitting behind us parents and children, the kids were running riot at no time were we offered to move (thankfully they left before we did). When the food arrived the chicken was hard, presumably where it was cooked before our startes and then not cooked fresh. Starters were taken off the final bill but overall experience very poor.

    The food was delicious. We had starters mains and dessert and every course was lovely. We got there at 16.50 so 10 mins early for our table. We got told there was a happy hour on cocktails so we thought we would make the most of our day out. The waiter said we couldn't order them till 5 so we said can you come back when we can order. Never did get the cocktails had to settle for the soft drink we ordered earlier. Although the food was great no one came over to ask if we needed anything or if everything with our meals were ok. I thought considering how many staff there was nobody seemed interested in the diners. 1 girl stood outside for 1 hour doing nothing folded up a couple of blankets and looked at the booking list. I thought the whole experience could of been a lot better the service staff are definitely letting the chefs down. We enjoyed our meal and we would come back again hoping that the amibiance and service would have improved Thanks Leona

    Dined at Cabana as pre-cinema meal and it's perfect for that. We were promptly seen to the table. While busy we found we could hold a conversation without shouting which is always a plus. (PS. It probably makes sense to book in advance for evening dining) We both had skewers (Lamb and chicken) with rice, salsa and coconut coleslaw. The skewers are juicy and flavoursome but not at all hot (certainly not to our West African palates) with reasonable (not Flintstone) portions. There are some tasty drinks offered (cocktails, wine and beer) but dessert options are sadly limited which is a shame. Service from our server was attentive. Thumbs up.

    We were a table of four and at first the music was too loud to talk to each other, but the manager turned it down when we asked. We had cocktails which were OK and the food was quite good - reminded me of Nando but with more choice, including beef, lamb and prawns, with a Brazilian barbecue sauce, rice, chips or salad. Not much veggie choice, as the veggie skewers on the website were not on the menu. Buzzy atmosphere and friendly servers.

    The range of food is interesting but not particularly broad. Portion sizes are generally good. At the Stratford site service is variable depending on who you deal with. The main waiter we had was really good, but some of the other staff are clueless. Overall a reasonable experience, but could have been better.

    Enjoyable experience, took a long time to get the attention of the staff. And when we were eating they came over three or four times. It seemed they were a bit out of depth with the amount of people. The food was good but nothing that wowed me. Would probably visit again but it won't be a first choice.

    We te here for a quick meal on the way to the veodromw but wwon't be going back. We took one of the Spicy Malagueta chickens hich was OK and one pulled pork burger which has to be amongt the worst pieces of food we'd eaten in a long time. There was so little meat in the pulled pork burger it was hard to fine. The bits of meat that were present were tepid at best, chewy and far from being succulent and the sauce it came with was also ropey. We had a couple of cocktails on the 2 4 1 deal and these were average to low end. Service at the table was OK but the staff seemed to be arguing with each other next to our tables quite a bit and we could sense the tension. We will not be returning.

    The restaurant was lively and had interesting decor. The waiting staff were attentive and food and drinks were delivered promptly. The ribs that we had as a starter were delicious. I enjoyed the malagueta prawns but felt there should have been more prawns given that I was paying £5.95 for small prawns. The crispy squid was tasty but the rings were thin. My main was the spicy malagueta chicken and sweet potato fries which were yummy. The homeslaw needed a stronger dressing it just seemed to be shredded vegetables. However I think the main should have been priced lower to be value for money.The super suco smoothie was very icy and I could only detect a slight berry taste so it was disappointing. The cool colada was a lot better.

    We were a party of 5 celebrating 2 birthdays. The starters were superb. The steaks and the ribs were equally good. I found the chicken a bit bland but someone else in the party liked it. The puddings were great and I will certainly return for another meal. The general ambiance was very good and you get the vibes of South America especially with the background music. The only downside for me was; I found the music a tad loud. Service was a bit hit and miss. We had to ask for serviettes and had to ask for water trice before it was provided.

    My partner and I decided to come for our monthly date night. We booked over a month in advance yet when we arrived we were sat in the weird mezzanine level where they keep all of the meat refrigerated, and it was really poorly lit and cramped (there was barely enough room for the waitress to move between our table and the one next to ours). We asked if we could move but she muttered something about keeping the other tables free. For booking so far in advance I'd expect much better seating. The starters tasted ok (we shared the calamari and Parmesan with honey) although the batter had fallen off the calamari as if it were store-bought and the Parmesan dish was literally chunks of Parmesan with a small bowl of honey. No skill required. We also ordered the "limitless tortilla chips" which the waitress whisked always as soon as it was emptied!! I asked why and she said it was because we had finished our guacamole! We both had the house burger (can't remember the name). This sounds like an exaggeration but we both agreed that the burger meat was like an Asda frozen burger. It was ridiculously dry, flavourless and small. The bun was also dry and the filling was so stingy. My partner got the fries which were tasteless and limp and I got the chilli sweet potato fries which were actually amazing and the highlight of the night. When the waitress came over and asked if everything was ok we said that it wasn't and that we didn't want to eat any more. She interrupted me to say "maybe you ate too much food". I wish we had refused to pay the bill (which came to over £80!!) but we were so done with the whole thing and wanted to get out of the horrible seating area. Will strongly discourage friends from eating here.

    Had Cabana steak medium rare with kernel salad on the side. Steak was perfectly cooked and the salad was interesting but lovely. Only downside was the place was very packed and the music was too loud that we had to shout to each other to have a conversation.
