Amazing and creative food in an upbeat and trendy restaurant. Very lovely evening in a great atmosphere. All the food we had was incredible, as were the cocktails. Slightly expensive but perfect for a special evening.

Great fresh food, beautifully plated. Great atmosphere, slightly too noisy but bearable. Service was good. We are given two hour slots due to the current climate staff should have been more attentive when we finished. We waited 15 mins for our plates to be cleared. We had to call them over and ask for desert and another drink, they said we had 15 mins before our table was up. It was busy and there was a number of staff on. We missed out and so did they! However I do recommend and definitely will be back.

Been wanting to come here for ages and it was certainly worth the wait. Sensational creative plates of food. Things I’d never had before like their incredible Seaweed Doughnut. Set meal great value. Highly recommended

Worthy of a Michelin star. This is not a meal it is a story told through food. Could not recommend more highly.

The menu is so unique it makes this place very special
We did not have the taster menu (next time) but enjoyed the meze with delicious bread, and two dishes - mushroom and courgettes - you have to go to experience the taste and presentation as difficult to explain as more visual and a treat for the taste buds.
Really friendly team and thank you to the chefs - amazing

The team and restaurant are simply exquisite. This is Michelin style cooking at a fraction of the price. The chef will own a Michelin star before he is 30.....fact.

Booked to have a nice meal out before second lockdown, and Perilla delivered. Accommodated our baby in a pram and me as a vegetarian diner. Food was good, especially my burrata, chestnut & pumpkin starter, whilst my wife particularly enjoyed her ox cheek main. The house Pinot Noir by the carafe was excellent. Wishing the proprietors and all the staff all the best, we hope to return post-lockdown.

Loved it! We had the tasting menu which was lovely - simple dishes with a twist. The atmosphere was rustic and warm. The staff were helpful in explaining different ingredients. All round I'd highly recommend it

The only minor thing was that it was fully booked, and I felt slightly conscious of people walking past closely due to risk of spread of Covid. It's the first restaurant I've been out to eat indoors so I'm not sure what a 'normal' distance is

Finally got to try Perilla in Newington Green. My wife and I went for Sunday dinner. I liked the set, but limited menu. Pefectly undestandable during the current situation. We particularly loved the mushroom soup, and the stuffed chicken main was also very good. Really nice ambience, and great spot to check out in the area for date night.

A great place with totally delicious food. Every single morsel is worth eating. Wine pairing with the tasting menu was an eye opener. I usually steer away from Orange wine, but this one was actually delicious. Also to pair a red wine with fish was adventurous (still prefer white). Impeccable service.

Absolutely incredible food and lovely ambience. Everyone working was so friendly and seemed to be having a great time. Had a delicious orange wine recommended by both the waiter and the sommelier, and had each dish explained to us really well. All the food was so exciting and all the flavours perfectly balanced, given enough space, etc.

Our second time visiting this incredible restaurant. Both times it’s been more of an experience from the second you walk in to the minute you leave.

The food is simply amazing, the staff are attentive and polite and you can tell a lot of love and thought has been put into making it this way for diners.

Head chef Ben Marks alongside sous Chef Adam Wood make a formidable team. The dishes are creative and technical, yet remain un-snobby (which is a recurring theme). High end cuisine with a casual feel to it all. The flavours bamboozling and pleasing the palette all at the same time.

Will 100% be returning when possible. Thank you Perilla, you rock!

Amazing food, every course was excellent and beautifully done. Lovely space and nice staff. Wine pairing was excellent choices but terrible value for money at all, 4 tiny glasses for £40. No good, definitely go but don’t order the wine pairing, just get a bottle- all the wine is delicious!
