As usual the food was superb - original and very very tasty. The service was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. It seemed a wee bit noisy but unpleasantly so.

Food - Probably one of the best places I've been to. All the meats were cooked to perfection (Fish/Chicken) - hard to get right, but Bright balanced the cooking very well to perfect tenderness.
Services - Very attentive staff at all levels from comfort, to recommendations.
Ambiance - Smaller restaurant with a very energetic vibe, but definitely not a quiet place.
Would come again!

We visited for a late lunch on a Saturday. The service was excellent throughout, we were given good advice on how to structure the meal as well as wine and food recommendations. Our table most enjoyed the starters/snacks and the desserts (we had all of them) and the pollack main. I loved the two pastas, but those dishes had slightly less impact. The meal was part of a great day in London Fields.

Great wine, interesting food despite my natural horror of sharing and never knowing how much to order as I feel I am urged to order too much. Weird congratulatory tone on ordering like I entered a competition...no one topped up our wine, a bugbear of mine.

Drink and wine selection were great. Cool East London spot. Some dishes (sardine toast and leeks) were delicious. Pasta was not great and cheese puffs were....fine.

The food was delicious and unusual. The wine list was excellent, and the other alcoholic drinks were strong. Service was good and the decor/ambiance was nice.

Delightful service, lovely food, good wine selection with a some wonderful funky natural wine (as well as some good options for more traditional palates), great ambiance for catching up with friends (not too loud). The guys there even stopped by friend’s bike from being nicked and left a note on it for him to check the steering. All round fabulous experience!

Excellent food, excellent wine and excellent service. This is my favourite restaurant of 2019.

All the dishes we tried were great. Menu changes frequently but if you can, you must order fired squid sandwich.

Amazing food, simpel but the flavors and dishes are very creative and delicious. Prices are worth it and the portions are big. So really a lovely dinner place - tip: take the fried squid sandwich, the veggie fondue and basically all the pasta's and chocolate. Totally in love. Also very good wines.

The Service and atmosphere was really good! The food was quite disappointing because the flavours of the dishes did not match with each other and my stomach felt quite ill when we were eating at Bright and that lasted for two days. We had high expectations but the food needs to be improved!

Excellent food! I’d say British cuisine with some Italian influence. I definitely recommend the oysters and the pasta dishes!

Lovely food all in all.
However we Got the chicken thigh which arrived raw and on a bloody plate. The waiter returned with the same pice of chicken cooked more on a new plate and informed my that that type of chicken can sometimes look raw. It was bleeding. ProBably for the best I didn’t take a photo which in hindsight I should have. Unsatisfactory responses from staff. They even had the nerve to only remove £7.50 from the bill, half of the cost of the £15 chicken dish. Not a way to do business guys. Very disappointing evening.

We like Bright. Not too complex food using excellent ingredients, great wines and amazing staff who make everyone feel welcome. Very laid back, while you are looked after really well. ...Also great for the severe allergy sufferer in our family. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Excellent service and well executed dishes, with a focus on simplicity. However I felt that the value for the large plates was poor, hence the 3 stars. Pasta dishes were especially delicious

Great experience! My boyfriend is a chef and he complained about the lack of hot spicy flavours in dishes where it clearly says that tere are spicy ingredients, but , apart from that, everything was delicious and staff is very attentive and knoweledgeable. The fried squid sandwich is the best!

Food was very poor quality for the price—we ordered dover sole (for a whopping £26) which was flavorless, full of bones, and had blood on the plate. The mussels tasted to be a few days old and the salads were bland. If the prices of these dishes were lower, this would be acceptable, but the quality in this case did not merit the hefty price tag.
