Scott Hallsworth was head chef of Nobu in Park Lane, London for six years. He opened Nobu Melbourne in his native Australia before returning to London to create Kurobuta, the Japanese Izakaya.
Freak Scene is Scott's new restaurant. We hope you like it.
Fabulous food, really cool atmosphere, good cocktails, we giggled over Takeshi’s castle on in the background.
The food, ambience and service was all superb. Will 110% be coming again.
Disappointing after karabuta and did not like the decor.
Staff lovely though
Service was poor, we were 'checked-in' three times by three different people constantly asking (annoying!) and one of our dishes never even arrived and I had to ask twice just for water! Most of the dishes are really good, some are not special and expensive for size.
Loved it. Great food, great atmosphere, great service.
Scott Hallsworth and Phar have done a great job creating a relaxed yet stylish place to enjoy some really outstanding and inventive food. The boy from Collie, Western Australia, has created an interesting venue ideal for dining with business guests or friends.
Great food and nice staff it was worth a trip, the restaurant was quite quiet.
I just LOVE this place. The food is fantastic, reasonably priced and the staff are amazing. Delightful surprise for a rainy Tuesday evening.
Whilst some dishes were full on flavour there were far too many served on tasteless taco crisps. It also isn’t very appealing to see so many plastic containers used in the kitchen with very little cooked there and then. Hiding behind loud music here I think
Amazing food in a lively little place. Loved the music, can’t beat a bit of Wu Tang whilst having dinner. Staff are amazing as well. Would definitely go back.
Just like Kurotbuta the food is finger licking good! Highly recommend the aubergine with candied walnuts, beef tataki and the artichoke chopsticks were OFF. THE. CHARTS
Such a cool and fun place. It was really vibey and fun. Loved it
Amazing food, menu is really exciting and each dish was a delight. Good value, filling, and lovely staff.
Great service, very friendly staff who checked in on us throughout the evening. The food was delicious and not too expensive for what it was! We wanted to try more of the menu but didn't have enough room in our bellies! The only downside was that the drinks were a tad on the pricier side. Would definitely go back!
Great food. Nice staff. Terrible service - just awful.
I don't remember the last time food sparked my taste buds. Must eat the fried chicken with peanut sauce and the roasted cauliflower!! Fun counter restaurant, visual food.
Great place- food is delicious! We ordered every single item from the menu! Staff are friendly yet still professional- entertainment was brilliant! My new favourite
Really fantastic restaurant with delicious food. They misssd one of our orders but apart from that it was really ezcwllent. Great vibes. Beef tatki very good.
2nd time now and as good as ever. simple well thought out menu, reasonably priced.
Very cool spot to start a fun night out. Good drinks, food is delicious and special!
The food was wonderful, creative and well presented. Try the crab avocado wonton bomb, or the aubergine. Also enjoyed the tea smoked lamb chops. Service was friendly. It’s a busy place and always lively. Music a bit too loud but it doesn’t detract too much from the overall experience. All seats are at the bar so not comfortable for more than 90 minutes or so.
Love Freakscene. Exciting cooking that tastes delicious in a laid back bar environment
We had a Great time there!!!
Such a fun spot with amazing and unique food! Go!!!
Fantastic food with lots of options. Staff were friendly and helpful. The wine was reasonably priced and good. The atmosphere was casual and cheerful and I would highly recommend for small groups before or after an event.
Went for a friend’s birthday, it was absolutely yummy and fab kind of place and food. Service is the weakest point - not very attentive and hard to get even though everyone sits around the bar. So should be really easy to nail. Still very much worth the visit, again and again :-)
Bomb! Really solid food, and a great counter top vibe!
The food was delicious the staff were lovely I will definitely be going back!
A very short but expertly constructed and executed menu. The crab bombs are a must try and the mushroom dish was stellar. Good cocktails and a vibrant atmosphere make this a great place to go with friends or the other half but maybe not a first date.
Great place with awesome food. Service is not the best though.... too bad. But still overall a place to come back to!
A place with great buzz and fantastic food to match. The moment you walk in you feel alive! A four or five dishes that were fantastic and can't wait to get back.
Fantastic food, excellent cocktails & Scott & Farr are wonderful hosts. They talked us through the menu, we talked about industry stories (it’s a small world) & enjoyed it all immensely. Highly recommended!
Went for my birthday, didn’t disappoint! Had a lovely meal and some great cocktails- highly recommended!
Fantastic Food. Every single plate was delicious. The staff were helpful and friendly.
A really special place. Amazing flavours. Lovely people. Edgy, innovative, energetic, interesting. Love it. Love it.
Love the 90s alt vibe - very Soho!
Went here for dinner after hearing lots about it.
Firstly liked the warm welcome from everyone behind the counter. Sitting up at the bar was really great seeing each dish and cocktail prepared. Chef Scott and his wife were both there which is nice to see the actual chef now days!
The cocktails were delicious and enjoyed a couple of good beers too.
The food was absolutely amazing. Really impressed and the portions were a good size too. Lots of variety and after sharing a few plates we felt we had chosen a good selection.
Like most sharing plate restaurants it does add up a bit £££ but I can honestly say it was worth the money.
Will definitely be back with friends. ❤️
Absolutely awesome place. The chicken fried chicken should NEVER be removed from the menu - will be back in a heartbeat!
Loved this place. Food is great, amazing small plates - especially the squid and Vietnamese lettuce rolls. The fact they show Takeshis Castle on a big screen just sealed my love for the place.
Great food, especially the squid! This is my 2nd visit and I can’t wait for the next one
