Waited 1 hour before we had the first tapas served, the first dish was only for two people and we were three friends dining together. Waited another halv hour for "everyone" to receive something to eat. Very (!) undercooked chicken, my friend got sick.

I had high expectations before but unfortunatley the overall experince was not good. There were a few nice tapas dishes but the waiting was too long and don't understand how you can servce a dish and not check if the whole group have something to eat together.

The staf was nice, and I whish it would be a better overall evening, we got free drinks for the undercooked chicken and that was an appreachiated gesture.

We went for the tasting menu and the range of dishes was superb: very tasty, each one seemed to come out just as we were ready to tuck in again. Food was very good and the service was great. We had a very friendly waitress - I wish we’d got her name because she needs a commendation. Good vibe in the restaurant; not too quiet and not too hectic. We enjoyed MBER very much and I’ve already recommended it to others

Very interesting take on Asian fusion meets tapas. We had a mix of plates for sharing, vegetarian and meat and there was not a dish presented that was not delicious. The ambiance was great and it's a nice quiet spot so easy for conversation. Would definitely go back.

The service was absolutely brilliant. Very accommodating since we were delayed.

One comment I would make would be you should update your wine list. We ordered a 2016 Malbec and were given a 2018 vintage at the same price. I’m not one to complain but it’s miss-selling.

Thanks for an excellent evening.

We got put into a private room. Which was amazing, as it was me and my gp's anniversary dinner. However, it was a very hot day and it was a bit of a shame that the room didnt get much air con or fan

Delicious food and fabulous restaurant and just a little sad that we couldn’t have the dessert we wanted as there were not enough ingredients. Very minor point though - the taste and presentation of the dishes we had .....superb 😀
A few more salad sides wouldn’t go amiss ...
Will certainly visit again..
Thank you chef and staff....

Was a real shame actually. Had a lunch with you 6 months ago and was great, this time the food was poor, cold, badly presented, just looked a bit slapdash from the kitchen were the menu looked really great. It is not mid-tier but I would say higher level on cost and it simply didn't live up to expectation when we were taking international clients and wanted something "slightly special".

Food is amazing for sharing and trying lots of the options with the table. Would recommend the soft shell crab and duck bao buns. Went to celebrate a birthday and the restaurant were very helpful and popped a candle in our dessert. Only slight criticism was that it was a little quiet for a Friday night so atmosphere could have been a little better

Hi Anonymous, Glad the birthday celebration worked out and thank for the amazing feedback too. If you ever plan to visit us again, 21:00 would be the ideal time ;)

Hi Bridie, Thanks for the fantastic feedback. We plan meticulously to get a balance menu. We are already working on some new concepts now- Pan-Asian Tapas, when right, is amazing.

Food was incredible and service impeccable, have to mention the duck bao and the peanut butter dessert! If I had to pull up one thing, it would be the service throughout the 9 course tasting menu. Although attentive, the tapas style plates were brought out far too quickly between each course, making us rush slightly as we ate. In retrospect, we would have appreciated more time to enjoy the food as it did begin to feel like we were being rushed out.

Hi Elisha, many thanks or the brilliant review. Sorry you felt rushed - time-to-time the kitchen are a little ahead of flow...we love diners to take time and savour all the food and the atmosphere. Look forward to seeing you again! Management

Another fab night out at Mber!! I went with a girlfriend who hadn't eaten there before, and knew she'd love it. We had the chicken satay, soft shell crab, blackened cod... all of which were divine.

This is such a cool restaurant, the food is amazing, the cocktails are to die for & the atmosphere is fantastic!

I would seriously recommend this place to anyone who wants a great night out.

This was the ultimate experience, from the very beginning the receptionist was really kind and accommodating to our needs, she offered us a private room before i even knew they had one as i requested somewhere a little quieter, once we got there we were shown to the room and served by a really sweet and polite waiter called Jaime, he gave us amazing recommendations and as we were only eating vegan he even offered to alter things on the menu to better suit us, the food could not have been more mind blowing in all honesty, eating out vegan is normally very hit and miss but this was the most amazing meal we have had anywhere and all the servers were very professional, at the end of the night i tipped our waiter £20 which i have never done because i genuinely felt he deserved it and it was clear that he was proud to work there and made us feel really looked after throughout the evening, we look forward to returning.

Another addition to London's overpriced restaurants. After an unenthusiastic welcome at the door you are led down to this basement restaurant. The food is horribly overpriced for what it is and portion size. Service is slow, food took forever to come out. My local London Bridge Thai is a billion times better in terms of taste and quality and everything else. There are much better value for money places in London. This looks nice but there is no point if the food is not up to par.

Cozy place with a cool vibe and excellent service. Food just wasn’t that great. Did the tasting menu and found it disappointing. Best dish was the sashimi to start. Calamari felt like it could have been frozen calamari, bones in the curry fish. Not worth the price for the food or wine.
