My two friends and I had the worst customer service we have EVER experienced at this restaurant on Friday evening. As soon as we arrived we felt pressured to order. Unfortunately I was unexpectedly suffering a flare up of an ongoing illness so I was unable to eat, however, shortly after my friends finished their food we were brought the bill (we had been there a total of 45 minutes). We were then harassed by 4 waiters and who we believe was the manager to pay and leave immediately despite our booking stating that we would have the table for one and a half hours. The staff, especially the manager, were unbelievable rude, to the point that my friends and I were physically shaking with disbelief. They claimed that they needed our table for the next customers however, there were numerous empty tables around us and the entire downstairs of the restaurant was set up for business but empty. After ongoing harassment we finally left the restaurant exactly 59 minutes after being seated (in the end the manager snatched the bill from our table and asked us to just leave and not bother paying). We are absolutely appalled by our treatment and shall never be returning again. I am writing this review because no one should ever be subjected to such behaviour.

Bad service. We had just received the dessert card, when the waiter told us another reservation had been made for our table and we had to leave. This, even though we had also reserved a table and had only been there for about 40 minutes.

Hi Joeri, Thank you for the feedback. Please accept our sincere apology of the incident.

Booked the bottomless brunch for my brother’s birthday. The food was incredible with great portion sizes, the sharing start boarder was definitely the highlight. Lovely vibe and our servers were very friendly and wanted to help. You get your money’s worth with the bottomless option as my drink was never empty! Would highly recommend and will be going again.

The food was tasty and different. We shared a selection of starters rather than a starter and main course. We enjoyed the different flavours and the prawn lollipops were really nice. The rest was very good too. It was a pre theatre supper.

The food was lovely but thought the bottomless element was quite stingy and staff were very rude when we asked to be topped up for a final time. Based on that I wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend to others, there are far better bottomless brunches to be had in London.

Jinjuu Soho
Responded on 4 February 2020

Hi Holly, We are disappointed to hear that you were dissatisfied with your bottomless brunch experience. Unfortunately, we would have to refute the claims in this instance. Your server constantly topped up your glasses throughout the service and I never saw it went below 50% at anytime. 125 min into your 90 min session, you requested a top up to which we declined. You then accused us for not topping you up enough which was untrue. Other reviews of our bottomless brunch speak for itself. K

I was pretty disappointed as I'd left a note asking the restaurant to bring out a dessert for my mums birthday. When it came to ordered we'd all said no, however it would have been suspicious if I'd ordered one as I'm not eating sugar. I tried to subtly gesture to the waiter to bring something out and he said "WHAT" really loudly over the table giving the game away completely. Nothing was brought out for my mum and I really wanted her to feel special. Would have left a much higher review if this had been executed correctly :(

The food and cocktails were absolutely divine. One big draw-back to our experience was the restaurant appeared to transform into a House club at around 10pm. We had a late booking for 9.30pm on a Saturday night. On arrival, we noticed a DJ in the corner. Music levels at that point were loud-ish but to be expected for a Saturday night Soho dining experience in a busy restaurant.

But by 10pm, the volume was up very high, to the extent that we couldn’t hear each other speak at all and the bass line had started to resonate through our plates...and teeth. Half the diners had finished and were up on their feet dancing, while the other half of the restaurant was still eating. It’s a small venue, so it made for quite an awkward experience for the people still eating.

We eventually asked to be moved to the downstairs area, where the volume was less obnoxious. It was helpful also that the music also eventually progressed from droning House music to general party tunes (think Beyoncé etc).

Overall, I would recommend but, at the risk of sounding like an old lady, if you want to hear your companions speak, or aren’t a fan of House/dance music maybe avoid later bookings on a Saturday night.

Hi Toni, Thank you so much for the detailed review. We are glad to know that you thoroughly enjoyed our food and drinks. We completely agree that weekends at Jinjuu is a bit more bar orientated towards the later part of the evening. That's why we are more than happy to accommodate any diners who wish to have a more relaxed experience, should they wish to be seated downstairs. All in all, thank you for the recommendation and we hope to see you again soon. K
