Friendly & attentive staff. Lovely decor and ambience. Clean & COVID-19 distanced. The food was outstanding, bursting with flavour. A taster starter arrived as a special from the chef and it was absolutely delicious, an unexpected treat. Every dish was a culinary delight tbh but the Tuna Dak Dak was outstanding. Will definitely come again in the future. Thank you :)

The food at Coal Office is a delight; interesting, provocative combinations of flavours and textures. Has lifted Middle Eastern cuisine to new heights. The design of the restaurant is the most tasteful kind of modern industrial with gorgeous lighting. Staff are charming

We had an outside table on heated terrace to meet COVID tier 2 rules. Staff were excellent, food delicious and interesting. Great whiskey cocktails. We wrapped up warm and did not notice 3 hours fly past.

Perfect for a luxurious meal and if you need to celebrate. The waiters are very helpful and knowledgeable and always seem to be there when you need them. Music near the bar area was a little too loud. Food is excellent.

Main issue was the service. Waiter forgot if our wine order was red or white, then only brought a glass and then argued when we said we had asked for a bottle and was quite rude to my husband and then very cold to us for the rest of the evening. We also realised when we left that one of our starters (the tuna) never came! The food was nice, the wine was great but I would hesitate to recommend based on the service.

We had been looking forward to trying this for some time but found it rather a triumph of style over substance. Disappointing but expensive menu, overly loud music, tables rather close together, food rather forgettable for the price.

Beautiful food, served with skill and attention. I always find it weird how noisy the staff are around the bar when the ambience is so lush and fancy. But they are upbeat and super friendly so its no big deal.

This is a great restaurant - decadent and exciting food, even for vegetarians.
