Drop in for fabulous dim sum and cocktails in the bar or book ahead to enjoy the unique experience and vibrant atmosphere of the e&o dining room.

Private Dining

The food is good but the sushi is sometimes really bad.
It’s good in general

Lovely enough to have this as our neighbourhood restaurant. Food is always great and this time exceptional, especially the soft shell crab. Staff are always friendly and most efficient and relaxed in service.

The table was not ready, but the receptionist didn’t explain or apologized, didn’t try to offer a solution : even though one of us had a problem and needed to sit
We got the dishes one after another, in a total disorder
Very disappointed!

Always good food - very consistent restaurant. We always order the same thing. I think the room could use a refresh - getting a bit tired but we wouldn't want too much to change at E&O - it's a favourite

food remains as delicious as ever, but main course prices on the lamb chops a bit too steep at £26. furniture is getting tired, the leather bench i was sitting on kept coming away as i moved, could definitely do with a revamp on the interiors to get the excitement back at this now classic asian fusion place

Birthday supper for my son attended by his wife and 17month old daughter. Our waiter was superb. Incredibly helpful with a great attitude. Even noticed that one of our guests didnt eat fish but ordered Miso soup and helpfully pointed out this was made with fish stock! Super attentive. The gorgeous little chocolate cake and candle brought to the table was both delicious and a lovely touch.

Food was okay, some of the staff were great. Drinks were good too.
Main issue was them clearing our table and changing the table cloth approx. 10 seconds after we’d paid the bill and hadn’t finished our drinks.
Especially because the restaurant wasn’t full and the table next to ours had been empty the entire time we were there. It felt a bit rude..

Ambience great. Food slightly disappointing. Black Cod fillet signature dish had bones in it and at £35 you would expect the kitchen to be able to de-bone a fillet properly....

Always great food and ambience. They were super busy and staff rushed off their feet so they did apologise for the lateness of our drinks order. But the staff are always so super nice so we can overlook this issue.

The food is always fresh and brilliantly flavoured with spices and herbs. Service is friendly and quick. We are very lucky to have e&o as a neighbourhood restaurant and strongly recommend it.

Great Japanese/Asian dishes freshly cooked; some of the best miso soup anywhere. The service is excellent which is unusual these days and really adds to the whole experience. The only complaint is that the background music is not in the background but so loud that it is a struggle to hear a conversation. The hard rock theme of the music will also not suit everyone. This is hugely annoying. I would not rush back here because of the dreadful music which is a shame because I really liked the food & service.

Having dined a number of times at e&o for over 15 years, and not been back for a few years we were disappointed by the lack of service. We were given a table which was very awkwardly positioned. The reason was they had made way for a group and we were left within centimeters of them whilst the other side of the table had a couple of meters spare. We moved it Ourselves. The table was not prepared for dinner, we had to ask for napkins & cutlery. All the other tables had candles, we did not. We were given one menu, after two minutes, the waiter arrived and said, what would you like to eat. I requested a second menu for starters... The food was excellent, however the service was not. I would recommend it, but be warned...

I'm sorry I have to say i was abit disappointed with the visit after the years again. The service was quite slow, the restaurant was not even full but to get the edamames we odered to be nibbled on while we were waiting for the food took almost as long as the food. The ambience was not as great as it used to be. A lot of empty tables with white table cloths at the busiest time of a Saturday lunch. Food was tasty though, but the portions were small compared to the price.

A nice little spot but my experience wasn't great. The waitress seemed grumpy and in a hurry, kept insisting what i want even i asked to give me a bit of time to check the menu. When i was ordering, she kept asking me to read what the dish is as she cannot see whats written in the menu...i mean you are a waitress in this restaurant, you should know whats in your own menu. She didnt know the dishes i was asking for and wasnt polite. Didnt set up our table properly and we were two people but she put plates and table cloth for 1.

I have been to this place once before, the service was good but this time it wasnt a pleasant evening just because the waitress wasnt having a good day perhaps.

From top to finish, everything was perfect. The chicken and vegetable gyoza were delicious. The orange duck was to die for and the chocolate fondant was just the right amount of chocolate but not too sweet.

Disappointing.
The gyoza came cold and were served drowned in a rice vinegar sauce... why not just put it on the side...
The pas Thai was super dry and not so flavourful.
It was very warm in the restaurant.

Hostess was very rude even though I had a reservation. The place was empty and she kept trying to give us the worst table. I had to say no twice. She refused to let us sit by the windows even though they didn’t even fill up for another hour. We were there for a special occasion and she completely ruined the beginning of our meal. We had a very nice waitress.

Much more quiet at lunch than at dinner which was great for a relaxed working lunch. A little low on attendance though which did not make it for a very vibrant moment if this is what one is after.
