Food was good but lighting was really dim for taking pictures and quite cramp
Outstanding experience! Will have to go back soon.
A very pleasent dining experience altogether
My second visit, and another excellent, inventive menu. A friendly, relaxed venue with great service.
Great concept. And half the time it delivers inventive cooking successfully. The Celeriac dish early in the lineup was best. Two Chicken dishes were very good. Desserts were excellent except for the beef-fat cube. Looking forward to trying a new menu there in my next visit.
Birthday spot fantastic experience once again
I don't usually take the time to write a review, but we had such a great experience that Pidgin deserves nothing but kudos - for everything. We found them when looking for a place to dine before an early concert nearby. The timing was tight, but the staff served us their full tasting menu, efficiently but not hurriedly paced, and got us out the door in time! Dishes were beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. Simply our best meal of our month in the UK! What a gem!
Amazing food, wines were very good and came out feeling extremely satisfied. They catered to last minute additions to allergies and food preferences very well.
Wonderful and extremely imaginative flavour combinations with a small but excellent wine list. Some dishes did not really come off either because they tried a bit too hard or were too clever for their own good - beef dripping fudge anyone? - but overall a really good meal. Service was good but unremarkable.
Great interesting food however service made you felt you were being rushed through your meal.
Everything was superb. Will be going back.
A great deal of attention and care given to the food over several courses but I'm afraid I was underwhelmed with the flavours. (the highlight was the butter served with the bread which were both delicious) Maybe its just my palette but nothing else really got my taste buds going.
The service was efficient but not very friendly and I have to say the bathroom broken seat wasn't what I would expect from a restaurant with these prices. Sorry for the bad review I really do appreciate the care gone into the prep of the food but I want to be honest.
This is a really special dining experience. It was so enjoyable from beginning to end - the food was outstanding as was the service, wine pairing and ambiance. I recommend for a special celebration or an intimate evening with friends.
Amazing food and wine experience. We did the wine pairing and it was excellent. It's definitely a pricey evening but if you're ready to spend money it's definitely worth it.
Main for beef a little tough but dessert possibly best I have ever had.
For us, Pidgin has no culinary equals in East London. It’s simply in a class of its own. We have been there many times now and it never ceases to amaze and delight us.
Pidgin was without doubt one of the best meals we've ever had. We went there for our 6 year anniversary and it did not disappoint. Every course of the tasting menu was beautiful and the wine was delicious. A small and intimate setting, the waiting staff were all great too. Cannot recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be returning to see what else they come up with.
Really relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff who are accommodating of allergies etc.
Never felt like they were getting in the way but always on hand quickly to clear plates and answer questions etc.
Food was incredible - incredible value for money as it's not often you get to eat a fine dining set menu for such good price.
Excellent food with matched drinks. A lovely slightly extravagant treat.
Top top food. The menu was exquisite, wine tremendous and ambience perfect balance of intimate and social. The only criticism would be that we left still a little hungry even with the additional cheese course. But probably because the food was so immense we just wanted more.
Exceptional food. Great value. Nice ambiance. Will be returning.
Fab menu, lovely staff with good wine list. Food was great value for money and love the idea of a set menu that changes weekly. Lovely chilled place for a relaxed long and indulgent Saturday lunch
The food was absolutely delicious with an amazing mixture of flavours. The service was friendly and very informative. Fine dining in a relaxed and chilled environment. Thoroughly recommended, we will be back!
Overall all the dishes were great, interesting flavour combinations and nice presentation. We were just a bit surprised that most dishes on this particular weeks' tasting menu consisted of lamb (even the dessert which we didn't even touch :( - it was really strange to have a lamb fudge!), I wish it was a bit more varied. Also, although the padron peppers dish was tasty there was no information provided that it will burn your mouth and lips, the peppers were so so hot that their taste overwhelmed everything else there was on the dish (pity), we only recovered after 2 glassed of water or maybe more.
The wine selection was also good.
As the menu changed weekly, I would be interested to come back and try something new.
Maintaining its innovative cooking style in an informal and light environment.
The ingredients are identifiable and intensified within each dish. Highly enjoyable and
good value for money
Amazingly good and smart with the lamb declination up to the sweet candy. Smart wine list to. My favorite in London. @theparisbiglebowski
The service was painful. The poor servers kept screwing things up but somehow wouldn’t apologize. The food was sooo delicious. It was a weird experience.
All the food we had was experimental and interesting. The only thing that didn’t work for us was the lamb fudge. The slightly lower score for the service was only because the power went out for a few minutes. Otherwise we enjoyed the meal immensely.
Loved the courses and pacing. Appreciate that the staff is professional and not too fussy. Creative, gorgeous food that’s still accessible.
Pidgin is everything we imagined it would be and more, amazing food - so much thought and outrageously good ingredients make this one of the best value meals ever! Would definitely recommend for anyone with an open mind and adventurous palette.
The best pudding I’ve ever had in my life, and I don’t like puddings normally. Really successful balancing of flavours on all dishes, and nice additions like home made limoncello. One to return to for sure.
Amazing inventive a real culinary experience.. thank you
We loved our Pidgin adventure ... food is beautifully presented and delicious. Flavours are intense and punchy using creative combinations that surprise and delight.
Absolutely outstanding start to finish. We came here 4 years ago and loved it, and were delighted to find that it has gotten even better! Really really special food
Delicious food in lovely setting. Portions of the same course were a little inconsistent but wouldn’t stop me going again
My boyfriend and I visited Pidgin on Friday night for his birthday, overall we had a wonderful experience. The staff were super friendly and informative, we also loved the spa-like toilets. The tasting menu was great, our favourite dish from the menu was the fermented cabbage, we would've preferred to have only had the second pork dish (the first was unfortunately on the dry side). I would say that if you've got a big appetite like my boyfriend then you may be disappointed as the portions are on the small side, however they were fine for me! Thanks for a great evening, Pidgin!
Pidgin is the kind of place where you want to go back and back and back : the food is outstanding, the service is friendly yet not too intrusive, the wine suggestions are perfect and they always come up with some extra surprises for you. We were about to ask for the bill when they brought the 2nd desert (!) and then, a 3rd one with the bill... We will definitely be back !
Great experience, wonderful staff and was fed a few alternatives as requested due to dietary requirements that were great.
Great to have a special dinner. I went with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. I loved that there were so many courses and all explained on arrival. They don’t rush you to finish quickly so the dinner was 2.5 hrs long, we had time to enjoy the food, have a nice bottle of wine and talk, it felt so romantic! Also the food it’s delicious, very creative and with a great presentation.
