The noisy and crude stag party next to our table nearly ruined completely the whole experience.
Sad they allow drunks in.

Brilliant value for lunch menu - 2 courses for 2 people at £30.00. A little too hot for us in the conservatory but it had a great view with good food. I didn't quite understand why they cramped us in a small table when the place was not full. Service was otherwise good and attentive.

We went with our son after he had run the London marathon. It was heaving outside and the music was very loud. It was a struggle to get in.
I chose this place as one of our party is a lactose free vegetarian and the online menu had options for them. The menu that day consisted of 3 choices per course. There was a vegan/vegetarian nut roast They chose the vegan option. This came with the same Yorkshire pudding as our beef and the gravy looked suspiciously the same.
The tomato soup looked like someone had squeezed a tomato into hot water and then sloshed some olive oils do blob of cream into it. The greasy mixture tasted as It looked.
The crumble had been heated up in the microwave. It was edible
The beef was nicely cooked and that’s as positive as I can get.
The poor food and deafening noise made for a very disappointing end to a momentous day
We aren’t local so it won’t be difficult not to make a special effort to return
Not good enough Gordon

It is a bit pricey and the food portions are quite small. Other then that absolutely fine. The staff and service was outstanding. It's definitely worth it to go. It was maybe a bit cold outside as it got darker but the ambience and the view was amazing.

A unique and interesting location makes this an exciting place to enjoy an evening out. Staff is polite and helpful, and very knowledgeable. The dinner menu is both balanced and accommodating with good options for both vegetarians and those who prefer meat/fish. The seafood especially was well received at our table.

Keep in mind that the best tables are likely to get booked first, and that the panoramic view of the Thames is an important part of the experience here. Asking for one of these tables specifically could be a good idea, if possible. Also, having some extra time before/after the visit itself is worth considering: The Limehouse/Regent’s canal area lends itself to good walks when the weather cooperates :)

Unfortunately, there was a problem with the gas in the kitchen, which meant that there were delays and the pork belly that some of us had was not properly cooked. Everybody else's food was fine and we were given free desserts to compensate. The staff were most apologetic and very helpful.

We went for a lovely breakfast - reasonably priced, slightly odd chewy toast, but with generous serves of halloumi and spinach, and PERFECT poached eggs. Couldn't fault the service - friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Great view of the water.

The only wrinkle was that the host obviously didn't check us in on OpenTable, so got a 'missed reservation' email afterwards. But regardless, will definitely be back.

I’ve eaten at the Narrow twice now. Both times I really enjoyed it. The location on the Thames is great, particularly at night when there are fabulous views of Canary Wharf in one direction and the Shard in the other. The real stand-out is the service. The waiting staff are friendly and expert. Nothing is too much and one never feels judged. The food is very good, beautifully presented and very tasty. Usual small portions but I was full after three courses. The restaurant is a short walk from Limehouse Station, so very accessible. Recommended.

We had a great time at the Narrow. Portions small but very well presented and tasty. Ambience good. Conservatory a bit chillly, although it was a cold night. Service great. One portion of belly pork sent back as it was all fat and hardly any meat! Switched without fuss. The special menu was good value for money.

Valiant attempt to keep the river-side conservatory heated , but even 10 gas heaters, couldn`t overcome a really cold snowy evening. Luckily we were quickly re-seated inside. If you regard this as a gastro-pub, the food is very good and well presented, representing good value - don`t go expecting to hear Gordon Ramsey shouting in the kitchen ! Staff were very busy but kept everything moving. W1ll definitely return in the Spring.

Food was average at best despite having some pretty strong flavours in there. It's a lovely space but I was totally underwhelmed by the overall experience. It took nearly two hours to get our mains, the guy next to us even had his order delivered incorrectly and then challenged by the maitre'd.
Really need to buck up their ideas if they mean to make this restaurant work.

I would highly recommend this 'hidden gem' - only slightly away from the hustle & bustle of Canary Wharf and a very short walk from transport links, the standard of cuisine was first class and the service was both efficient & friendly, all in a charming riverside setting . The 'I love January' menu was a real bargain, so snap it up while it's going. I would definitely come back.
