We were seated early, in a great spot by the window. Our waiter took our order and drinks order in one go and served us pretty quickly! Not too quickly! The food itself was amazing, so delicious, and we’ll definitely be back or ordering online

Service was slow; had to call a server a few times before they would come over. But other than that it was fantastic.

I've been here a number of times. Great location, great food, great service. The noise levels are off-putting. Perhaps they should seat diners side by side rather than opposite one another. The pizza dips are nice but extremely pricey.
The pizzas are fantastic and you can take home any you can't finish it a little pizza box or give it to one of the homeless.

Food was delicious.
Will definitely be back.
Only criticism is that the service was not as quick as I felt it could have been, given how busy it was.

I can’t think of anywhere else in London you can get Chicago style pizza, and it was good. It wasn’t a patch on true deep dish, but it’s cheaper than a flight to Chicago. The garlic bread was so dry and the service was pretty poor. I would go back though because the pizza was good. Definitely book in advance.

I was really positively surprised by great food. Restaurant also looks quite modern but nice. Little dark ambiance. Didn't really need to book this time but in future I expect there to be queues as it was fairly full the whole time and it was a Sunday.

I wasn't expecting expecting too much and came out pleasantly surprised. Good, attentive service and nice deep dish pizza. It's obviously not as good as Giordano's in Chicago, but for now, it's the closest we're going to get in London. I'd go again to try the cocktails.

Food was great. They didn't have blue cheese dip and forgot to add the extra sweetcorn to one of the pizza's we ordered so only charged us for drinks. Great customer service and would definately go back.

We have dined there 2 times now and have to say that we really enjoyed the food. The Chicago style deep dish pizza was so delicious and I highly recommend it. Service was prompt and professional. Special thanks to Sasha and Tamara who took good care of us and made sure we had a pleasant dining experience.

Three of us for dinner, drinking sift drinks. Although all the staff were friendly and nice, the service was a bit sketchy. Got seated but no one came with menus.
Other couples were served ahead of us. Food took about 40 mins to arrive. 18-20 is expected.
My friends ordered a second round of drinks that never arrived. We asked for them to be taken off the bill but the bill still arrived with them included.
In my opinion the blue cheese dip was runny & too salty. However the pizzas were absolutely delicious!! I would eat here again but I'd be mindful of the wait. This place perhaps just needs more staff.

Very nice place and great food! Amazing deep dish pizza, but a bit disappointed by the garlic bread, i don't think I'll order it again.
Apart for that though, this place definitely deserve a visit!!!

Pizza was good but not as good as I expected from the reviews; service was pretty slow, and had to ask several times for menus, drinks, the bill and to pay; the menu was more limited than the one advertised on the website especially for deserts, and only half of the 6-7 items they had on the menu were available on the night, so left without deserts and went somewhere else.

The pizza was outstanding, never had anything like it in the UK. Normally I would only choose to have Italian, thin base style pizza but went all in for this concept and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Was left feeling very full on the way home though and I can eat! So take it easy on the sides as the pizza will more than fill your boots.

As it's the only place in London to get Chicago style pizza, I would suggest it for those wanting to try something different. The pizzas are all high quality as are the ingredients, but bring an appetite because they are extremely filling.

It was my stepson's Birthday and he loves pizza so we took the family to Jape's. I'm originally from Chicago and had tried it previously and knew he would love it. It's not exactly like Chicago pizza, but as close as you'll get in London!!

First of, don't think there's anywhere else serving Chicago pizza...but best of all, the ones from Japes are SO good!
When people think "deep dish" they often think heavy and doughy but the Japes one is just like the one I had in one of the top Chicago pizza places! It's not too doughy, almost like a quiche and I had the mediterranean one that had feta, halloumi, peppers, olives...it was SO good! They didn't go light on the ingredients which a lot of places do.
Shared a little cheesecake with a friend too that was a nice cap for the night.

Interesting menu. Positive was that the Deep Dish pizza was delicious and entirely reasonably priced.
Negative was that there was no childrens menu, and despite having various pastas on the menu they couldn't manage to make a simple pasta for the kids on request.
Also, the Deep Dish pizza is truly loaded with sauce and cheese - which is in my view what you want when you specifically are having a deep dish experience, but I can't help but think that to most British tastes, the quantum of melted cheese is a lot to take on board. Would dread to think what the weight of cheese in one of their pizzas is!

The pizza wasn’t fully cooked; the salad was full of water. The waiters were very nice.
