    We came here for dinner with my friend visiting from out of town. We shared the seafood pasta and the Osobuco as the mains and the Parmigiana for the starter. Everything was absolutely delicious!! We didnt have any space for a dessert this time but will definitely be coming back to try a few off the menu! Highly recommend this place!

    We had high hopes for this and we were not disappointed in the setting. The refurbished Raffles is stunning and Paper Moon itself is a tasteful mix of glass, gold and floral opulence. However, as a dining experience it was one of the poorest I’ve had in London. The roast chicken and potatoes was bland , dry and without any garnish whatsoever. The gravy it came with was the only redeeming feature. The vegetable side order was again bland and quite oily, without seasoning. The pizza was dull, unseasoned and not a par on pizza express. Puddings were a little better, although the tarte tatin was a bizarre mix of flavours. My surprise tiny birthday cake was a nice touch, but the little cake was so rubbery it might have bounced. Oh and although accidents happen, they did drop our main courses, so we ate the strangw vegetable side dish while we waited, which frankly was just awkward. Beautiful setting, ok ambience, dreadful dining experience.

    It was my first time at the Papermoon after reading many positive comments. I can say that it was worth visiting this amazing restaurant. The food was perfect, specially the Milanese. Also the desserts were so tasty too. The attentive and knowledgeable staff further enhance the dining experience, providing genuine enthusiasm. Overall, it was a 10/10 lunch.

    I asked for a takeaway box for my food because I was full. The waiter responded that the customer was not allowed to take the food for takeaway. I felt that was not fair. I have visited many fine-dining restaurants and classic hotels in Global, Ritz, Buri Al Arab in Dubai, and Peninsula Hotel in Shanghai. The only reason they do not allow the customer to take the food is the food hygiene policy unless the customer signs the form to take their own risk if the food's quality is affected after leaving the restaurant. My questions are: why was I not allowed to take the food I paid for? They also wasted the food too. Kind regards, James

    Amazing as ever in an amazing setting, the food is good comfort food and can highly recommend the Gnochetti to share or for yourself as a complete indulgence The staff are attentive to your needs and nothing is too much trouble. I do hope that this London Gem within Raffles at the Owo doesn’t drop its standards over time as would be a real shame. Have eaten in there 3 times in the last two months and each time it feels special

    We had high hopes the whole experience was going to live up to expectations particularly as it was a special occasion. It was a lovely setting in a beautiful hotel however the food was a complete let down - truly awful. from the set menu the starter was far too heavy and the main for both of us being a fish and turkey dish was cold and mainly fat/grissel. The manager was very good and while we didn’t make a fuss he realised these dishes were just aweful as we each only had one bite and offer us the a la carte menu. The food experience really ruined what was meant to be a special night at some expense. I can honestly say in 40years of eating at restaurants around the world this was the worst food I’ve ever tasted. I’m really sorry to leave such a poor feedback but my scoring on the food front is actually very generous. Rob

    The location is outstanding, the service and the stuff were amazing but the food was nothing special. I might be to harsh about the food score but was a fine dining so can’t complain. The risotto I had was cold at the arrival. The plate can be slightly smaller cause I order 3 starter and the was not space on the table. But over I don’t mind go back there again my 2 out of 5 is more like a 6,5 out 10.

    The ambience of Paper Moon exudes sophistication and elegance, with stylish décor and attentive service creating a luxurious dining experience.The service was professional service throughout the meal. Despite the high prices, the food at Paper Moon fell short of expectations. While decent, it lacked the wow factor that one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Overall, Paper Moon offers a luxurious dining experience with top-notch service, but the lackluster food quality may leave diners questioning the value for money. Diners seeking exceptional cuisine may want to look elsewhere for a more satisfying dining experience. Some may come purely because they believe it is cool, but in reality, it is not.

    Ate here twice this week. Both meals were great, and we tried different dishes each time. The service from both Maryam and Mehmet was really professional and they advised brilliantly on the dishes. Looking forward to coming back to London and eating here again. The wine list is also very good.
