Pachamama East focuses on fresh seasonal produce and applies the bold flavours, aromas, textures and spices that make Asian food so utterly tasty. The restaurant offers a
unique experience to its sister sites, which have developed a strong following for their vibrant food and ambience, as it is the first to explore the delicious spectrum of Asian flavours that are inherent in Peruvian cuisine.

    Second time visiting this place. The food is absolutely fantastic and the restaurant itself is very pretty. Service could be a little better/friendlier but wasn't bad per say, only downside is that it can get loud.

    The food was incredible! Only got 4 dishes between myself and my partner and it was definitely enough to fill us up. The staff were lovely and the service was super smooth and fast - food came out less than 5 minutes after ordering! Very lively atmosphere.

    The setting of the restaurant is really nice and pretty, but it is very noisy and hard to chat without speaking pretty loudly. It's also really hard to find as there's no sign and just a random letter 'A' outside, so we walked up and down looking for it for a while. We had the pescetarian set menu - the seabass ceviche was delicious, as was the quinoa and we were also given a drink on arrival as it was our anniversary, which was a really nice touch. I have to say we were a little disappointed with the rest of the food. The padron peppers were far too salty (but replaced by our waitress without issue), the prawn toast was way too rich and smothered in mayo and sauce, so quite sickly. We also didn't like the cod pachamanca and found again that it had too much sauce and was too rich for us to eat. Our waitress was lovely and the cocktails we ordered were absolutely delcious.

    The food was very tasty but wouldn't call it the best value for money. The interior was beautiful but it was very noisy and therefore, difficult to converse without having to raise the voice.

    This place was unnecessarily hard to find. The non-description ‘A’ sign visible from the street seemed to have no obvious connection to a restaurant called ‘Pachamama’. You have to get right up close to the tinted windows to see that it is a restaurant at all and then figure out which of the 2 entrances on 2 different streets is the correct one. Had the vegan tasting menu. Delicious food and lots of dishes to try, but cumulatively, too salty for my taste. It was a nice experience on the whole but lost marks for being hard to find, causing a frustrating start to the meal, and overly salty.

    food was anazing and super delicious, would love to come back and try more. mean service. asked about some plates, waiter basically spoke down to me as if im stupid for asking them to talk me through the plate or give me a few more details. for example: “what is the pork belly dish like?” …”*rolling eyes* uhmmm… its just …pork belly? like its just pork nelly yeah”. instead of saying, its pork belly, fried, with this sayce, and these toppings. which is was any other waiter would say. not very nice. then witnessed same waiter having a full on argument with another waiter right next to our table, quite unprofessional to do that next to your restaurant patrons.

    It was OK. The pisco sour was good, perhaps a tad sweet but well done. The salmon ceviche was a little fishy and meh. It was very disappointing. The glazed pork belly was really good and quite a large portion. However, it was also a demonstration of the Chinese flavors taking over any hint of Peruvian influence. If you are looking for Peruvian food, this is not the place.

    Meant to be a fusion of Peruvian and Chinese cuisine, unfortunately the dishes tasted more Chinese than Peruvian and we had ordered a good variety. I love Chinese food, but was looking forward to the fusion as promised. The decor was lovely. Our waiter was annoyed that we didn’t want to order all our dishes at once and was rude about it. When I asked if we could order more I noticed that he didn’t have his iPad to make note of our order (as he had done before). When I asked him if he needed his iPad for our order, he replied ‘well you’re only going to order 3 dishes’. Payment is automated. And the service charge is like most restaurants automatically added. But then the system asks for a tip??? I mean come on!

    The food remains truly excellent - extremely tasty and flavourful. The cost seems to have gone up, not always in accordance with the dish. Whilst we appreciate duck on rice is a main sized dish and should cost £27, the same cannot be said for the char sui steak which is £26 for one pork steak - £3 per slice by our count! - with nothing but herbs alongside?! Likewise, charging £13 for broccoli is getting into the realms of truly excessive. Staff were incredibly attentive, but to the point we were told we ‘have to get the food order in right away’ after 15 mins - there were plenty of empty tables as we left, so why the rush? We felt extremely hassled. Also didn’t appreciate the upsell of ‘can I get you all a round of piece sours while you wait’ as a follow up… all we wanted was time to navigate the menu! I’m a long term fan, but some issues here that would prevent me recommending to others at the moment.

    Food was great, though on the pricey side. Vibe was fun but very busy, so difficult to hold a conversation due to noise levels. Staff were very busy and sometimes difficult to get hold of. Overall, an enjoyable evening.

    Tuna tartare very disappointing, sadly no one came back to check if we enjoyed the food. When asked if we wanted more water, no one actually came back to us with it. Duck on rice was definitely small for its value! Price was a little pretentious for this particular restaurant for this dish.. But the rest of the dishes were enjoyable specially the prawn toast. The ambience was great for a Sunday evening. The gent who took our initial order was visibility very good and had great hospitality skills.

    A lovely meal out. The portions are not huge but they are quite rich so you don’t need a lot. We had salmon ceviche, aubergine, tuna tartare and the ribs and they were all excellent but the salmon was probably our least favourite as it was quite soupy and perhaps had too much dill. The other three dishes were utterly delicious and grateful for the good guidance from our server. We had pisco sours which were great and the second cocktail was a bloody orange something which I personally didn’t like and didn’t drink, but that’s personal preference as I don’t like smokey flavours. Towards the end the music got a little bit too loud for us but it was a Friday night and lots of people were in party mode but it did make it difficult to hear our conversation, so keep that in mind if you were after somewhere quiet. Considering that it was a busy Friday night the waitstaff didn’t rush us and were incredibly warm, friendly and helpful. Look forward to my next visit.
