Squid ink flatbread and cod’s roe was great, ditto tete de cochon. Everything else, especially the ox cheek, was over salted. Aperol Spritz was hilariously stingy. I’m all for a bit of atmosphere, but we arrived early evening (18:30) to music SO loud I couldn’t hear myself talk, let alone my friends. I asked for it to be turned down a bit and was told no — that’s how the manager likes it. We were the only ones in the restaurant at this point. It was an ok evening, quite expensive for what you get, but was really turned off by the attitude re: music. A shame, as I’d been looking forward to going for ages. Unlikely to return.
Short and very innovative menu using seasonal ingredients. Everything executed to a very high standard.
This is one of the best restaurants in London, if not THE best. Unpretentious and entirely focused on the food. Food you simply cannot make yourself, s o have to go there to eat it. It's amazing.
Bold flavors, and adventurous ingredients, all with textures that were quite pleasurable. Presentation was nice, and the staff was helpful and friendly.
We read about Black Axe Mangal in Action Bronson's 'F*ck That's Delicious' and thought we should go! I assumed that it would be a bit of a theme bar / restaurant, but it wasn't at all. The food was amazing - some of the best we've had in London (lived here for over 12 years) (Have the crispy rabbit!) The interior is really cool without being too try hard and 'themey'! Brilliant playlist and cocktails. Couldn't recommend highly enough and will absolutely be back.
Great meal! It’s very refreshing to go to a London restaurant that serves delicious food with a good vibe and perfect service.... thank you very much. Will definitely be back
Great food, great service, music a bit too loud!
Food was outstanding, service was superb, couldn't fault it!
Will be back as I now have cravings...
My friends and I had been waiting to check this place since it opened - I don't know why we didn't go before. It did not disappoint. We rocked up on a rainy evening. The (small) place was packed and the tunes were classic rock and hip hop. And loud :) We had great cocktails, the service was warm and attentive and the food was amazing. Our favorite, on the night, was probably the chicken wings - which brought some serious heat. The food is dynamic and adventurous without being pretentiously so. Good place for a happy meal with happy hearts and full stomachs. Recommend ++
The heavy metal music made it hard to talk but I forgive them because the food left me speechless.
Fantastic innovative food. The ingredients used on the menu challenge you to try something new and exotic, well worth it. A fantastic culinary experience. My only grumble is that it is quite expensive. Our meal was over £50 per head and i wasn't drinking alcohol. Still, if you can stomach the cost, well worth the visit.
Had a great evening at B.A.M the food is creative and tastes incredible. The cocktails were on point can’t really fault it and can’t wait to go back!
