Overall it was very good food. Minor issue with tough mussels in the pescatarian tasting menu but it general very good. The service was a little impersonal but no real complaints. I’ve also been to Sindhu in Marlow and I’ve have to say that it is better.

Good food but portion size a bit stingy. Husband wasn’t offered rice with his main and menu wasn’t clear about needing to order it as a side. Service was slow and we felt staff were over stretched. Very pleasant ambience and enjoyable evening overall.

Food was good however service was too rushed. As there were only 2 other tables occupied and restaurant was open all afternoon this was disappointing.

The food is amazing, produce and ingredients are so fresh making the flavours brilliant. The restaurant itself looks and feels lovely and on a Wednesday evening the atmosphere was great. Thanks Hawkyns for a nice evening!

We chose the Taster menu, which offered a fabulous selection across the menu. Each dish was superb. The service was excellent from start to finish. Highly attentive and they missed nothing, orders for food and drink remembered, nothing too much trouble.

While the food was excellent quality I was shocked to see that all food and drink prices were pushed by 20-25% from a few weeks ago. This is a shocking and cynical price rise when the restaurant was aware that they would attract more customers on reopening day. Very disappointed.

The food was pretty good - the starters could have been hotter and the rabbit looked reheated rather than having the sheen of freshly cooked. The prawns were wonderful
The service was very poor with one of the mains coming five minutes after every one else’s.
To be honest was expecting more from a potential Michelin star restaurant

The food is delicious. There is a good choice of food with old favourites like 'Butter Chicken', but with additional new ideas including duck. The choice of vegetables is also good with original ideas. The service was fantastic - nothing was too much trouble and staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Recommended!

This was our fifth visit to the Hawkyns in Amersham. Always outstanding, but if possible since lockdown, last night was even better. Thank you Atul, it was delightful meeting you and we will certainly be returning shortly
Thank you, Margaret

Great experience, service and food was great. Of course, social distancing means the usual buzz and chatter is missing, but that is nobodies fault and it will be much livelier when we get back to normal.

You cannot fault the food. We both thoroughly enjoyed every course, just like we have in the past at the other two restaurants that we have visited in Marlow. Service was attentive and friendly, just as it should be. I would highly recommend.

Food was good but didn't have the father's day tasting menu as advertised on the website which was disappointing. We were told when we queried it in the restaurant that it was only available for lunch. Also no children's options, again, not clear as on website it had them

Atul should be ashamed to put his name to this restaurant. A small room, with no ambiance, at the front of a poorly run hotel which did not adhere to covid rules. Waiting staff shared with the hotel restaurant. The tasting menu, one meat and one fish, was no way worth the money charged. The meat samosas, served on both menus, was the most enjoyable part, although it was rock hard and may have been microwaved. We left very disappointed and a birthday treat was ruined.

Food to spicy both courses even though ordered mild dishes. Naan was hard. Could not eat starter and just about ate the main. Limited menu. No ambience at all. Felt like we were sat in a space not normally used as the other parts of restaurant look much nicer. No ambience at all. Poor food defiantly not worth the £300 + we paid. Although they did refund starter. Service was great though from our waiter. Not what you expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Completely overprice from our experience. Most disappointed. Our friends have been to the restaurant in Marlow before and they have said this is not comparable at all to the lovely Marlow Restaurant.

Always wonderful visiting this restaurant. The service the past two visits (recently) was a struggle. Arms dangling in our dinner, lack of attention by the waiter during ordering . Also frustrating when you are told what to eat and battling to explain that isn’t what you want… it was not very relaxing. However, I am certain that all was well meaning if a little frustrating. Food was good. Service too hasty. We won’t visit again for this reason for a while. Also do not forget to log your car details on arrival/ be sure that they have logged them correctly as I am now battling a parking fine that I should not have!
