This was our second time eating at Perilla and both times we have been blown away. The service is relaxed yet attentive, and the staff are super knowledgeable about the food and wines. We had the set menu, of which the starting 'nibbles' and onion soup were a real highlight - but all courses were thoughtfully put together (and delicious). A special shout out to our sommelier, who was easy-going, knew his stuff and made a great recommendation when my partner wanted to swap out his dessert wine on the wine pairing.

If you want great service paired with really special food and a laid-back environment, this is your place.

I wasn’t sold on this place by reading the menu - it was a friend who insisted I went - but it was honestly one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life. So much flavour! Just delicious!

Great food. We did the tasting menu with matched wine and it was great though a lot of food. Come hungry if you plan to do that, however you can also do a la carte.

The tasting menu was challenging which was why we went here. Presentation was excellent but servers were not attentive enough to any questions about both content and process. Table service was overall poor and did not justify the 12.5% service charge. Also quite weak on service of wines.

I loved this restaurant. From the beautifully simple but well designed wooden chairs and tables to the world’s smallest butcher’s sink in the tiny but perfectly kitted loo, everything here has been considered. The food on a Sunday was shared for the table but with an individual vegetarian option for one of our party. Portions were generous and delicious and the service was exemplary. Highly recommended.

I went here recently on a busy Saturday night and the whole experience was great.

Had the tasting menu. All courses were really tasty, with the burnt onion soup and the grilled pork being the stars.

Look forward to going back.

Food was exceptional and fantastic standard. All courses of the set menu were brilliant. Only caveat was that we had a c30 min gap between a couple of courses and so flow of the meal was broken up.

A really excellent and imaginative meal. Unusual and exciting flavours without silky exaggerations. However - and a big however - it took far too long to serve the 5 course set menu. The gap between the two ‘main’ courses was so long that we almost lost our appetites to continue. This is a genuine blemish at a very fine restaurant.
