The music was too loud and all wrong. Food a bit lackluster, though granted the service was fine

Love Giraffe Spitalfields, very good location. Nice, relaxed atmosphere and a great selection of food on the varied menu. Good place to catch up with friends and not too noisy so it’s easy to chat and have a proper conversation which is sometimes difficult in other restaurants. Would recommend

Pleasant restaurant although our table was outside. My friend ordered a cocktail and the ingredients were unavailable. We ordered from the 3 course menu and the starters came up at the same time as the main course. My friend sent her main course back and said she didn’t want to eat cold steak and chips. We were not convinced that the original meal was not just heated up and served again. My burger was ok but nothing special. The bill seemed expensive for the quality of the food . Probably wouldn’t go again as there are plenty of different options

Service was up to standard but the food really wasn't. It was a mixture of different world's cuisines but all poorly executed - felt like a concoction of microwave dishes hastily thrown together by an impatient university student. Will NOT recommend!

Food was mediocre and quite expensive. Service was poor overall - food was served reasonably quickly but had to wait a long time to pay the bill. Despite this, ‘discretionary’ service charge is added by default

The food was lovely! It can’t be faulted.
Unfortunately the drinks we wanted were out of stock. The tables were not layed so had to find someone to give us some cutlery. The restaurant is very clean and tidy and is quiet even with the market outside.

We sat in the outside area which is still under cover so it was perfect as the weather was nice and warm. The food as always was really good, we had the tapas and the churros and we definitely enjoyed the cocktails.

The waitress was new and at one point, we saw her take our drinks to another table but hey, everyone has to start somewhere so we were not too fussed plus she was very apologetic.

My one bug bear is that my Giraffe app never seems to work when I visit their restaurants so I can never collect my loyalty points...

Our first visit to Giraffe was an absolute hit. The staff were welcoming, very friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. A new family favourite for us! Thank you.

A quiet Sunday afternoon meet-up with mates was damaged by our choice of venue. Food was greasy and salty, and the service staff were inattentive and sullen. Even with 241 on a Tastecard, we left feeling robbed. The fact that the restaurant adds a discretionary 12.5% service charge to the bill must be the only reason that waiting staff at this venue receive tips.

Decent burgers but nothing spectacular. Staff service levels differ greatly from staff to staff. Basic decorations. Decent but not memorable.

Expensive, over cooked (reheated?) fish that was inedible, a tiny, dry portion of jackfruit curry and dirty surroundings that included a bit off the back of an electrical plug left on the shelf beside us and a ceramic pot covered in dried-on barbecue sauce. I would not recommend this restaurant to anybody.

It was a really busy lunch service - the food wasn't as good as it usually is and the service was slower (due to business). The wine was good tho.

Our greeting was immediate and friendly, we chose our table and the smiling waitress took our drink order. A waiter took our food order, I had the tagine my wife ordered spicy rice with prawns. My dinner was excellent. My wife’s dinner arrived with chicken instead of prawns. The manager offered to remedy this but as we wanted to eat together she accepted the chicken. We had a lovely evening

Went to Giraffe for a catch up with friends that I hadn't seen for a while. Primary aim of getting together was for a gossip, some cocktails and a laugh. The two for one cocktail offer was very attractive and the cocktails perfectly fine. The service was with a smile, prompt and very friendly. The ambiance was fine, the food however wasn't overly impressive. Not worth complaining about because we had a discount card but without that we may have said something since it wouldn't have been value for money. Not a venue I'd hurry back to if I wanted a really good meal.

Food was very average.. was glad we had a 2 for 1 voucher. Service was terrible. Had to ask to pay multiple times, it’s not like they were even busy

I always love eating at Girrafe, always a delicious safe bet. The staff were lovely, even charged my phone for me! I used to manage a Giraffe and the menu has changed a little, welcomed change when you've eaten it every day for 2 years! It is always good value for money, the new tapas starters are absolutely delicious and the Katsu noodles were great. A great twist on the well known dish.
All in all, a lovely evening as always at Girrafe. Thanks

Great service and food! Happy hour was good, £10 for a bottle of house wine and the night we went was 50% off burgers! The staff were friendly and gave a great service 😃

I regularly eat in Giraffe and the food is always great and tasty. I had the fish n' chips with mushy peas and my only criticism of the good would be that you only get a very tiny tiny portion of mushy peas. In terms of service this is usually always good too, however, on this occasion I had to ask for my drink 3 times before it arrived. I only dine here when there are 2 for 1 offers on and this makes it good value for money. If there were no offers, I would not eat there. All that said, I would recommend a visit.

Went to Giraffe on a Sunday night. Has food from the normal menu (nor Christmas menu). Nice range of food even those they didn't have a number of food options available. Food came quick and it was nice. Also good options for desserts; spoilt for choice. Service was generally good through your the evening.

Good food, not to busy, a couple of run around kids spoilt the first 5minutes, told to go away not by parents but me. Who wants screaming children running round there table , some parents have no control over there children. But the rest was good .

The current quality of the food is not good at all. This used to be a great place for moderately cheap eats. This is the second time i have tried it in the last couple of months to give it another go. The first time I had a salad, which had barely any of the listed ingredients in. The manager was great and I just had something else. This time I had the prawn linguine, which was not linguine - just a sort of spaghetti typle food which was pretty flavourless and 4 prawns. The wine offer was £3 a glass, which is cheap, but again barely any alcohlic content from what I could make out. Its hard to complain too much because the food was 40% off and at £3 a glass of vino I suppose you cant expect much, but would rather have paid more for a decent meal. Waiting staff were excellent though and very helpful.
