About

Hello friends and Eight Over Eight family,

We will be re-opening in March after a considerable renovation as E&O Chelsea.

Our chef is currently in Asia re-formulating our pan-Asian menu, and the restaurant will benefit from a total uplift, with a chic emerald horseshoe bar, palms and sumptuous bathrooms.

We look forward to seeing you in March.

It was okay! I was expecting more from the food. The miso soup was too salty and tepid at best when it was served. The other appetizers including the squid were also not hot for some reason. The korean lamb chops were too rare and had to be sent back. The ribeye was a bit dry. The service etc was great and the ambience was similar to E&O in Nottinghill, but next time I would just go to E&O or Nobu, and not Eight Over Eight.

Food was good! However upon arrival at eight over eight the greeting staff were not friendly and seem unorganised. One lady was quite rude after making a mistake and sitting us at the wrong table, making it out to be our issue. I would say overall an over rated restaurant.

Very ambivalent about Eight over Eight which my wife and I have now visited 3 times. Ambience would be great except for a generally excessive noise level resulting largely from music played in the background. Some of music played is more disco appropriate than restaurant appropriate. At times it is difficult to converse . Having now tried many of the menu items, my opinion is that the Dim Sum items are the best. Salads not great; tempura was brutal. Curry was too sweet. Quality of service is variable. Most service staff show willing but some don't seem well informed about menu. Wine list is eclectic but in any event I find for Asian food wine (except chilled white) does not complement very well; rather prefer beer or cold drinks. We will certainly return but I am not convinced that this will become a long term favorite. Biggest single negative from my perspective is the noise level. DRS

As a very frequent customer was appalled by the sudden inflexibility on gluten free options and change of gluten free preparation for some very simple dishes like egg fried rice with chicken for children . We have come very frequent to this place but new manager had no clue on what the options were. Poor customer service experience - won’t go back anymore.

The food was good, but the service was not. I found the staff rude (especially the manager) and their service slapdash. The ambience was lively for a Wednesday night and very loud- my ears were ringing afterwards as if I’d eaten at a music gig. I’ll stick to E&O which is must less pretentious and with better service to boot.

Went to this restaurant because friends recommended it highly. We went for drinks first at 17.30. The music was so high we couldn't talk. We had to wait in the bar until the dinner area opened at 18:00. The hostess in the bar wasn't very helpful or friendly.
Finally got our seats in the restaurant and were told a DJ would be playing at 19.00 in the bar (wall to wall) where we sat. We got a wonderful waitress (Sarah) would really took care of us and made us forget the awful 30 minutes in the bar. Our food came relatively fast and was exquisite. We loved everything! And now I understand why this restaurant is so highly spoken about.
We live in Norway/USA and travel quite a bit. This restaurant is up to par with the best.

Hadn't been to the long-established bar/restaurant for a long time. Perhaps not quite at the cutting edge nowadays, it remains something of a 'scene', and pretty reasonably priced, considering. We enjoyed the food, but it's not the reason to seek the place out.

I was a bit dissapointed on Sunday as we felt it was a little under whelming. The bottomless dumplings were tasty but a lot of dumpling paste & not much filling. The duck salad was different again & it seemed that no one had cut it properly.

The food was good and the wine amazing.

BUT

The head waiter was grossly condescending and frankly quite rude throughout the whole evening. He kept being sarcastic even when late with food and wine.
All my friends were left unimpressed.
I will seriously think twice before retuning here.

Sadly it used to be a much better experience.

To the management: do yourself a favour and hire a new head waiter. The guy is a liability

Always seems busy here but after two visits I still fail to see why. Can't be the food which is unremarkable. Maybe it's the music which is loud and irritating. It attracts a youngish crowd with a sprinkling of older men and their daughters. At least one hopes so.

The food is very average to poor. We had the prawn and chive dumpling and tiger prawn griddled dumpling to start. For main we had the kimchi lamb and pad Thai. Pad Thai was overly sweet and overdone. Lamb was not a great cut of meat and was lacking in the flavors that would have made it a fusion dish. The cocktails were mediocre. I place itself is decent. Reasonable decor and good seating setup. I wouldn’t make my way back here unless there was shift in the food.

Friendly staff and great service however the food is definitely imitation Chinese and anyone expecting real dumplings and gyoza will be highly disappointed. Cocktails were both pretty and tasty. Sushi rice was squashed and paste-like. Miso soup is too weak in flavour. Shame about the food as we were really looking forward to our meal here, but will not be going back.
