    We’d booked for lunch but ended up going back for dinner instead as it was very quiet, literally just a couple of tables dining and we wanted an atmosphere. Dinner time was much better with chilled house music playing and a buzzy atmosphere. Service was great and the food excellent however if you don’t like spicy food don’t go! Every dish was pretty hot, even the corn on the cobs but I’m sure if you asked, they’d make it more mild. We just didn’t know how spicy it would be however it was still very tasty and we enjoyed it. I haven’t been to London in a year but it seems everywhere is adding 15% service charge, even for 2 people! I found it such a spoiler to the end of a good night as despite liking the service we got, I don’t like being dictated to that I need to pay 15% on what is already expensive for what you get (even though I’m aware of London prices of course). When I said we’d like to leave our own amount they said it’s 15% or nothing, they couldn’t change it. It just causes such an awkward scene that I wish they (everywhere in London) reminded themselves we’re not in the US and tipping in the UK is at the guests discretion. Apart from this though, you will enjoy tasty Peruvian food in the heart of London’s west end.

    Dear Customer, We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed both the service and the flavoursome food at The Leicester Square Kitchen. Your feedback regarding the spice level of our dishes is appreciated; we strive to cater to a variety of tastes and preferences and perhaps a note on our menu about the spice level would be helpful. We understand your concerns regarding the service charge; it is indeed a common practice in many London establishments. While we have no control over this, we do value your feedback on this matter. We are glad to know that despite this, you had a good experience and enjoyed our Peruvian cuisine. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to London. Warm Regards, Sathiyaswaruban. R Restaurant General Manager.

    Overall was good, the food was tasty but the shrimp were the best. The place is beautiful, good ambience, good drinks and very modern. The service definitely can benefit from attention to the guests, the place wasn’t busy and this is why I highlight this part. The food, was ok, but now I understand that is in a trust area, so it explains a lot.

    Ideal for groups and people who enjoy having a little bit of everything. Highlights were definitely the calamari, fish taco and street corn. Fantastic flavours and beautiful plates. The calamari was light, crispy and packed a great punch, highly recommend. The sliders were a perfect sharing size with three pieces and two perfect bites each. Everything myself and my partner had was spicy but not overwhelmingly so, and packed full of great taste. The non-alcoholic cocktails were also delicious. Service was great and we were definitely looked after. Personally the only let down was dessert, but that’s personal preference, they would suit others, beautifully presented though. All in all a great spot, fun atmosphere and fantastic food.
    Leicester Square KitchenResponded on 21 February 2024
    Dear guest, It's delightful to hear about your experience at Leicester Square Kitchen.

    The food gives an interesting twist on familiar dishes, but we found some of the spice too overpowering. Also we can’t understand why mains are unaccompanied nor that sides are not on the fixed price 3 course menu.

We always strive to provide a distinctive culinary experience to our patrons. In regards to the mains and sides, we have designed our menu to allow for flexibility and individual preference. However, your comment about sides not being a part of the fixed price 3 course menu is noted. We hope for the opportunity to serve you again in the future to provide you with an even better experience. Warm Regards, Sathiyaswaruban. R Restaurant General Manager.

    Genuinely the best restaurant I have been to in a long time. The staff were very welcoming and lovely throughout. The location is smack bang in the middle of leicester square. Nice music, not too loud and we could have a conversation no problem. Cocktails were delicious and fresh. Now....the food!!!! OUTSTANDING. I can not fault any of the dishes we had. The meat all fell off the bone and was delicious. The calamari was hands down the best I have ever tasted. Even the corn on the cob was mouth watering! I cannot wait to go back!

    The food and set up for our group of 15 was great and a relatively good value for money. The main let down was how slow the service was.

    Took 30 minutes for a drinks order, 1 hour for food order to be taken. Staff just seemed to ignore us and wouldnt serve us if they 'weren't our server', would go off to find our server and they never then came. Such slow service that it ruined the meal, weren't even fully booked table-wise when we sat to eat. food was brilliant but really let us down. even getting the bill was hard !

    I have been here twice now and have really enjoyed myself as well as my partner. The food is good as well as the cocktails. I wish the menu had more optioned, not loads more choice but maybe an additional page. The food is very good and well prepared and presented. I am not a fan of guacamole but I love theirs, very tasty. I would recommend to friends for sure. This is a trend, romantic place which is overall enjoyable environment. The staff were smiley, pleasant and professional for both visits our visits.

    Good quality tasty food. Small portions were not an issue. Service was poor as we were not offered more drinks during the meal and they brought out the main course before clearing the previous course. Had the ribs which were great and would have expected a bowl for cleaning fingers or some wipes. Overall very good for what is a hotel restaurant. Would definitely go again.
    Leicester Square KitchenResponded on 9 February 2024
    Dear guest, It's a delight to know that the quality and taste of our food, particularly the ribs, met your expectations. We strive to provide an exemplary dining experience, and it's disheartening to hear that the service fell short of your expectations. It is our goal to ensure every course is enjoyed before the next one is presented, and that guests are offered refreshments throughout their meal. We also appreciate your suggestion about providing facilities for post-meal cleanup. It's these thoughtful ideas from our patrons that help us enhance the overall dining experience at The Leicester Square Kitchen. We look forward to welcoming you back and providing an even better experience. Warm Regards, Sathiyaswaruban. R Restaurant General Manager.

    The food was good enough - limited options for sides - my partner was hungry as the portions weren't that big! It's spicy so you need to factor that in. Service was great, it is a noisy place but great views of London Leicester Square. Good for pre theatre eats.

    Absolutely love this place. Food tasty and right portion sizes. Service; attentive, friendly, super hygiene. Place marvellous. Price for food fair, for cocktails (as it’s mostly ice) & wine a pit steep. Overall we’ll be going again. It’s a lovely enjoyable experience.

    This is a lovely place to eat whilst visiting Leicester square, especially maybe for a special occasion. They have special set menus too. Caters for all dietary requirements.

    Have been here a few times as we love the small plates of tasty dishes. This visit the service was not up to par. Drinks took a long time to come and when chased we were told the bar man was too busy making cocktails - we were waiting on glasses of wine! An apology would have been better than this excuse, if cocktails are popular have enough bar staff, shouldnt have to wait 15 minutes for a glass of wine to be poured.

    We thought the food was really overprized. For us it was too hot/spicy and we asked if the maincourse could be less spicy. Yes, they could do that, but then we got three plain chicken skrewers with half a lemon. So either it is very spicy and if you don't want that, you get no flavour at all. Staff was very friendly.

    The service is very slow. All plates are sharing even the main meat plates, but they don’t come together so if you don’t want to share you have to eat alone and they other watch you and have to wait. The food was good quality but everything was really spicy. If you sit in the front part each time the door will open you will feel the cold air flow. The waiters are very friendly and the place is nice but the whole concept isn’t really structured.
