We had a great time at Bloomsbury Street Kitchen. Really nice food, good atmosphere and friendly service. We decided to stay there to have post-meal drinks, rather than find another bar.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly although a bit forgetful which we experienced when having to wait too long for the drink menu and the bill. The place was nice and tidy with good space between the tables. However the music was just too loud. Considering there was a family with a toddler it would have been courteous to turn the volume down. It wasn’t really a place inviting to linger for too long just for drinks since it is a place for dining. The food and drinks were alright however to both me and my companions tastebuds lacking in combining the flavours suitably. The place definitely has potential. With a bit more attention to whether they really do wish to combine Mediterranean with Pan-Asian cuisine as it didn’t hit the marks for me and definitely do something with the music level then it just might work and warrant a revisit.

Food and service are excellent. The only issue was they had a DJ who was playing music too loud for us to hear each other. The manager was called as there were only 3 tables .. us and two couples trying to talk to each other. After a bit of persuasion the music was turned down a notch. Kudos to the manager who had to override hq instructions. Feedback to HQ try thinking about what your customers want not your “image”

Very lovely and attentive staff, the food was ok, but the music was thumping loud.... Fine for the bar area, but not the restaurant. It was very hard to have a conversation.

The food was overpriced for such small portions, was very disappointed. I would have loved a refund on some of the items of food, our final bill was so high - we left feeling hungry! The waiting staff were professional and lovely given what they had to work with - hence why we kept the service charge on the bill but I would suggest the menu be re-evaluated.

Nice venue and attentive staff. But vegan menu is very poor in selection and taste. Ordered the sharing plate of beans, broccoli, avocado. The beans and the broccoli were tasteless and over boiled. The avocado dish was small slices of avocado on 4 tortilla chips and charged at £6. The waiter did remove this from the menu after discussion, but I really think if you're offering a dedicated vegan menu it needs to be better.

We chose this restaurant on the back of comments from recent reviewers, our experience was even better than expected. We mixed dishes from both the European and Japanese menus all of which were delicious. Special thanks to Dean our waiter who made our visit such a pleasure

Excellent, innovative fusion cuisine. Service is attentive but a little under-trained (and not the best English either). I’m not sure the DJ in the middle of the restaurant is the best look but thankfully for this “oldie” the music wasn’t too loud :)

We booked this for our 9th wedding anniversary, it has excellent setting, food and service. We had the set menu which the salmon avocado, salad crab and tuna tacos were splendid. Giulia was very attentive, gave excellent recommendation and always served with a smile. Even surprised us with a small token of a macaroon to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely come back, highly recommended!

We had a lovely time and the food was great. My only criticism would be that because it was so quiet our waiter (who was lovely) came over too many times and we were always in the middle of a conversation.

The restaurant/bar is beautiful, the staff were so attentive but the food didn't match up to the high standards I expected. However, it is really great value! I would recommend friends to visit for a drink rather than a sit-down dinner.

Lovely looking place and the food was delicious. Felt very LA: overly attentive servers and a cool vibe.
Main gripe was the hoummous. It’s a large bowl but comes with four slices of pita (“because we don’t want to waste any”) when we asked for more we weren’t told we’d be charged £3 for essentially one pita bread that wasn’t even home made - clearly from a 50p packet. Makes no sense as there’s far too much hoummous for four tiny pita slices, so if they’re concerned about waste they need to rethink their serving sizes.

Service and food was amazing, staff was incredibly careful as well. You can’t tell that the restaurant only opened a few weeks ago, since everyone seem to know what to do. The only issue was the music, it was so loud that we couldn’t hear each other or the waiters. Perfect night, amazing price and great food, will definitely come back.

Not much to say other than everything was pretty exceptional -menu selection wasn’t overwhelming but with great variety of choices, great drinks selection, standard of food, presentation, ambience, environment, speed of being sat down at the tables (well managed even though it was busy - we didn’t need to wait). But most importantly- service was fantastic throughout. Really good value for money (with drinks, desert, and ofc a mountain of sharing platters- around £60pp including service). I really enjoyed the experience and highly recommend. Definitely worth booking in advance! And I hope the menus stay fresh + you guys do well! Great addition to London’s dining scene :)

We throughly enjoyed our visit to Bloomsbury Street Kitchen - every dish we had was lovely, with our only suggestion being that the tacos used may be better with a soft taco rather than a tortilla chip. Apart from that, we absolutely raved about the whole experience and on leaving the restaurant we spent all night talking about the visit and the possibility of going again. Staff were knowledgeable and welcoming too. Thanks!

Food excellent, staff very attentive, lovely ambiance, decor and generally very pleasant dining experience. Only slight negative was that they forgot our brocolli and by the time it came out, our other dishes were long since eaten - meaning we were eating brocolli on its own. Also we were taking advantage of an opening 50% off food offer - I think it's a little expensive at full price.

It was a drenchingly wet day when we arrived, but there was a warm and friendly welcome from the staff, and they were most helpful in explaining the dishes to us. Following their speech was however a bit challenging - a combination of too loud music, an echoing high space, and waiters with strong foreign accents. Nevertheless, the ambience was pleasant; the internal design is original and modern but still highlights the features of the original old building, the lighting is clever and there is a spacious feel to the eating area. The food was glorious, completely unique in our experience and every morsel was delicious. We found the menu rather limited, maybe this was just for the lunch? Once our party had excluded our intolerence to shellfish and to chilli, there really was rather too little choice left. Eating there was truly an experience to remember, and if the menu were more extensive, we'd love to come back for more.

The venue is beautiful and in a great location. Staff were considerate and attentive. However, very poor knowledge and choice of gluten free options. Effectively, the entire Japanese menu is out of bounds for those that suffer with coeliac disease. The meals that were then ordered by the group were only declared as gluten free or not after arriving. Additionally, after being told two desserts were gluten free and placing the order we were then informed neither were. We asked to cancel them and get the bill.
While the carpaccio dishes were flavoursome, I don't think this warrants a second trip - especially if any potential diners have food allergies.

The food was delicious, service was good, but OH THE VOLUME OF THE MUSIC! We could barely hear each other talk and couldn't make out what the waiters were saying. Be warned! This would have been a 5-star review if that one thing hadn't spoiled the whole meal.

It was a soft opening so value was fine. The problem was the service. The individual staff were great, but when a waiter knocked over my wife's wine glass (it smashed and wine went across our table, the floor, and lightly splattered a neighbouring guest) there was a comical lack of understanding. Our neighbours should have been given another table, but weren't. Then my wife's glass was replaced with what looked like 50ml of wine at the bottom of a glass. She immediately said: that's less than I lost! Then our neighbours were given a full glass of wine each, by way of apology. We had none. Problem - lack of leadership on the floor.
