American
You’ll find Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant and market in the historic ‘Trocadero’ building, just a few minutes’ walk from Piccadilly Circus or Leicester Square. The restaurant is a tribute to the film ‘Forrest Gump’ and features a menu of comfort food from the American South that reflects the film’s setting in Alabama. Shrimp is of course the specialty but there’s something to delight everyone on the menu including all American burgers, crisp salads and indulgent desserts. Relax in a fun, casual setting where the friendly staff will welcome you just the way Forrest and his ‘best good friend’ Bubba would!

Lovely food and good service. It was my sons birthday and the server brought him a special ice cream. The staff all sang him a birthday song too. It was a nice touch and made it special for him. Also there was a kids eat free offer on which was great.

I think this restaurant is really overrated, we were so excited to come here. But we went for a friend's birthday and l was disappointed to find a hair in my cocktail and that when my food finally came it was extremely greasy and lukewarm which meant I could only manage to eat a little.

When complaining we were only given £3 discount off bill which was nearly £150 for 3 people... (we were told American food is super greasy apparently) also we didnt pay for 1 cocktail. Considering amount spent and that it was my friends birthday we could have been compensated better.

One plus point was the staff were nice and made us feel welcome

The food was boring, the waiter didn’t understand English and wenwas sat next to an extremely loud shouting and swearing group. Overpriced and ruined our trip

Food was good but very expensive for what it is.....don't understand the 12 and a half per cent service charge which let it down. Enjoyed the experience but wont be going back at them prices.

Been here a couple of times before lockdown. This visit was a bit of a let down. Everything seemed very limited. The fact that you are expected to pay for tap water is a bit much. Not sure we will be returning to this location anytime soon unfortunately.

Food was just okay not nearly as expected, maybe we expected too much considering the circumstances.

The price of the food needs to be looked at as overpriced for what it is can safely say I will not be eating there again until the prices have been lower to a reasonable rate

The food here was nice but over priced. We all enjoyed our meals. The Service was good but I wouldn’t say it was Overall value for money. Large service charge added to bill.

COVID has wreaked havoc, but staff were friendly and the manager/hostess was professional and attentive and our waiter was very friendly and great with our kids as well. We weren’t there for the food, we were there for memories and margaritas. They delivered.

If i could give no stars I would have, it was the worst dinning experience ever.
The starters and mains came out together was missing a starter then told we are not doing it. The music was to loud as we were seat under a speaker just didn't enjoy the meal at all the food was swimming in oil just not well presented

I recommended this restaurant to friends who wanted I knew dinning experience even though I had been there 2 years ago and was excited to go back, unfortunately the waitress didn’t listen to orders and seemed to be having a conversation on a ear piece rather than paying attention the customers which is wrong if she did she would of seen that our orders where not followed as asked, they refunded the not enjoyed fatty ribs that my partner received which looked disgusting, so overall I won’t be going back to this establishment it is a far cry from the establishment it used to be and I’m embarrassed I recommended it on the plus side the coconut shrimps were lovely so there is the only plus of the evening

The food was so nice, nice variety of shrimp available, the music was lovely and I was surprised at how much seating was available. The staff were nice and we were sat at a safe distance from the nearest table. My first time here and I was really impressed, will definitely come back.

We only got one discount so paid more than expected - even when questioned after the manager didn’t seem to care government website stated discounts could be used for value of £10 per person and as many times as liked , food was good although the New Orleans shrimp was rather small portion , just for his attitude we won’t be returning an I love the brand an concept as we had been in Florida and New York

Awful. Simply awful. I wouldn't bother entertaining this terrible place. Rude manager, way overpriced food and a misplaced atmosphere with a modern soundtrack that doesn't fit the theme. To add insult to injury, there was a 12.50% service charge automatically added! We were extremely disappointed.

Trip to London called in for lunch first there so not busy restaurant was cold service was ok however waiter was not English and really struggled to understand her as she explained the system and menu
Food was well cooked but very expensive in my mind shrimp 4 ways with fry’s £21 the garlic bread was cold the drinks were without doubt extortionate £4 + for 1 Diet Coke needless to say it wasn’t the best would I go back probably not

Had a table booked for 19.15 saturday the 29th Aug. On arriving there were several groups kicking off about the wait. Made it very uncomfortable as we had small children with us. When we got our seats the menu stated ask for allergies, so we did as our daughter is gluten free. to be told sorry im new i cant help you.
The food was great as always but massively disappointed with the services. Everyone is new and has to learn but to be told nobody could help us with allergies is bad.

The wait time to get into the restaurant was crazy and I nearly wanted to walk out and go home. We had a booking for 7:15 and we was not seated unto nearly 8pm. And to add to that I had two kids ready to eat their dinner but once we was seated the food was good and the waiter was amazing!

Extremely expensive for really average food.
Service was poor. We were left in a corner even after having booked a table. Took ages to order anything. Staff kept walking past us. Seemed too busy for the amount of staff on. £12+ service charge was added so we asked for them to take that off. Still came to over £100 for 2 adults and 2 kids!!
