It's a rare delight to try a restaurant for the first time in London, and leave looking forward to the next visit. I just hope it keeps up the standard. Terrific, hugely flavoursome food.

Booked a table for 2 at 11. They were only serving coffee. We had been hoping for brunch. Very bizarre that open table takes bookings for this time when they don’t serve food. It doesn’t state the food serving times anywhere. I couldn’t cancel on the app (only by calling and they don’t answer on the weekend despite me trying to call to confirm if brunch would be served) and they charge per person for a no show. So had to travel far for a cup of coffee to avoid paying £30 per person no show as there was no feasible way to cancel. Joke. Service was abrupt and they insisted on taking payment as soon as they served the coffee.

Never eaten from a Peruvian menu before but have to say it was very good, Our server recommended ordering between 4 and 6 dishes for 2 people. The food was delicious and well cooked, quite spicy too which I liked with quite a varied range of dishes to choose from.

Fantastic food but staff wasn’t as attentive as previously. No cutlery on tables on arrival -had to ask for them. Had to call a member of staff to order drinks then to order food. Staff only seemed interested in keeping water topped up!
It was my husbands 50th birthday and was not impressed. The starters came out then main course. Plates were changed during our main course, it was all haphazard.

I was initially sceptical about a mixed cuisine restaurant, but it proved to be an absolute delight of a menu.
The sea bass ceviche, robata prawns and truffle tortellini were particularly fabulous! Great service and decor.

We had such lovely service from our waiter called Stan, he really took the time to explain everything and recommend the best options for us. The food was lovely, extremely different but very welcoming flavours for us, we loved the Peruvian side of the menu, excellent for a diverse palette. Can’t wait to come back.

Nice food and reasonably priced. Only thing they did rush us, understand that we only have an hour an half but we were constantly being reminded and after our dinner we decided not to have a pudding and was given the bill even though we had only been there an hour. They came over with card machine twice. Not nice being rushed when we still had plenty of time and hard to talk when someone always coming to check. Looking forward to having some normality as not enjoying this way of eating out.

Pavement eating lacks real ambience but it was lovely to be out! Food was delicious and great wine too. Service great in the main although we both felt rather hurried by one waiter who lacked charm but the other waiter was very charming and made us feel more welcome and less hurried even though we knew there was a timeframe.

We sat outside so didn’t experience the full ambiance but I went inside to use the toilet, is lovely and they have DJ decks do assuming they usually have a live DJ. The music inside was great!

For our outdoor visit it felt a bit chilly, no outdoor heaters but the service was impeccable, the food (we had calamari, lamb and tortellini followed by coffee brûlée and the white chocolate caliente) was absolutely delicious and would highly recommend. A bit pricey, £130 for 2 with a bottle of Prosecco but I’d love to go back to sample their cocktails which looked amazing and to sit inside when the DJ is back

The food and service was great - Shaun was an exceptional host! The street is also lovely (al fresco dining). Only downside is the lack of shelter/heating - Sadly the weather didn’t hold up and we got very cold and wet!

Excellent service, friendly, attentive (but not too attentive) and professional. The food was excellent! The starters of Robata king prawns and crispy peppered calamari were very tasty. We followed that with avocado and corn salad along with marinated corn fed chicken and, the star of the show, Robata-smoked paprika ribs! All the dishes were very well presented and very satisfying. Little touches such as the tap water being served in a jug full of fresh mint leaves was nice to see. The excellent Errázuriz Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon was very reasonably priced. I can’t judge the ambience as, due to restrictions, we were eating outside! Congratulations to the very charming Hemant and his team on a job well done!
