I thoroughly enjoyed my Perilla dining experience. The staff were attentive but not overbearing, the location and ambience is just delightful and the food was exceptional from first bite to last.

For the location and value perilla is astonishing. We had the tasting menu at £44. Delicious snacks, amazing bread, soup, scallop, lamb and a lovely trio of desserts.
The use of flavour and texture is so Clever. Nice range of wine by the glass as well

We sat down at 7am, though through chatting didn't order the food till 7.30 and we sadly missed out on the Al a Carte menu :( So order quickly when you sit, as its more than likely your table will be booked again for 9pm.

Though Perilla were very sweet and after we finished our drinks offered us a free drink at the bar, and as we left we were given a loaf of their stunning bread. Great service :)

Will be back

This was my fourth dinner at Perilla and together with Hide Above it is my joint favourite restaurant in London. The mark this time is a little down on last time and I feel it might just be because Ben Marks was not in the kitchen so his small, but important, personal touches were not all there on a menu that has not changed over my previous visits. Nonetheless it is a joy to be in a restaurant where the food is inventive and extremely tasty with excellent service as always and a varied wine list at sensible prices. More please!

Food was absolutely delicious - had the tasting menu with wine pairing. We will definitely be returning, either on the a la carte menu or once the tasting menu changes. The service and overall vibe of the restaurant was relaxing. Highly recommend.

Never fails to impress. one and only place where have been lately each time incredibly inspired. the only time I wasn't satisfied was when we haven't order a set menu. really record to go for the whole experience the dishes come from the kitchen in best possible magical timing, its all part of perfection. everything is excellent, the service the flavours and the atmosphere .

Everything was fabulous, food was outstanding. Only smallest criticism is staff reached over whilst eating to remove plates or took empty individual plates whilst others were still eating.

Was looking forward to try it and was not disappointed: the food was very tasty and the wine was good and very well priced compared to the usual extortionate average wine in may places. The service I thought was particularly good: quick, efficient whilst patient when required the overall atmosphere is nice, relaxed, civilised without the loud tables as the bar sitting favours couples.

Excellent veggie lunch at Perilla this weekend. The puddings were appropriately light, so we managed the full three courses and sent home full not as if we'd overeaten. Excellent all round. They use seasonal ingredients. We've been a few times now and have never eaten the same thing twice. Highly recommended.

All in all, fabulous. Tucked away in Newington Green, one of Londons best kept secrets.
From start to finish the whole meal was flawless. Our server was very knowledgeable, professional and the food was absolutely delicious, creative and flavoursome.
