Been to Giraffe before for breakfast and really enjoyed it... HOWEVER visited with some friends on Friday evening for dinner and was placed on a table in the corner underneath the air conditioning and it was freezing! We wondered if it was due to us being sat on the edge of the restaurant in the open but looking around lots of other diners were sat in their coats. I was really looking forward to my Katzu chicken noodles but they were a disappointment - just about warm and barely any sauce, the chicken was tasteless (I would have gained more pleasure eating Asda chicken dippers). Two of my friends sent their curries back due to it being barely warm. The menu has lots of choice and variety so there is a lot of potential to be had there but don't expect too much as it's not a satisfying tasting selection of dishes in the slightest and don't visit if you prefer your food to actually be hot when it arrives.

Not happy with the service we received throughout our visit. No warm welcome, not even a smile throughout the whole time we were there.

Visited last week for a works Christmas meal (group of 10) we arrived 15 minutes before our booking and they seated us straight away! The lovely lady at front of house said there would be a bit of a wait for food as it was very busy but we didn't have to wait that long, great food and atmosphere, will definitely visit again :)

Great food ....good choices. Good value for money, especially if vouchers are available. Excellent staff - pleasant/efficient/knowledgeable. Food delivered quickly. Handily located in pleasant surroundings - good buzz about the place.

Very average and therefore disappointed. Most of the nachos in the starter were burnt (but to be fair to staff they did exchange fairly promptly).

Pulled pork burger main course was a bit on the dry side too (but not enough to merit replacement).

Don’t think I would bother returning.

Overall very good, however, our waitress was a little distracted and came across as rude! We had asked for her to order our meals separately so bill was split but this didn’t happen, probably because of her distraction!

Great service and atmosphere. It was a bit cold due to the location, but that's to be expected I suppose. Food was good, although the patatas bravas were a wee bit crunchy.
Will go back.

It was our first visit to giraffe, and it certainly won't be our last. Our son has a peanut allergy, and the staff were excellent - double checking ingredients and showing me the files. The food was delicious.....3 empty plates can't be bad😃
We cannot wait for our next visit!!

Great restaurant, food options and happy hour. However quite chilly as it's in the open space of Grand Central, blankets / scarves advised!

Always excellent food and service, best to book if you can! Sometimes you have to wait for food at busy times but they are very honest and warn you of the wait times for food! Will be back again soon...
