What Insiders Are Saying
Want cutting edge fine dining at affordable prices? Pidgin's ambitious, experimental set menu in Hackney will set you straight.
Art on a plate. Exquisite to look at and delectable to taste.
We were slightly worried that the outside looked like a cafe. We needn’t have worried because the food, service and everything else was top notch. Some of the food combinations blew our minds (in a good way) and gave us great talking points.
Enjoyed the whole experience and would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Parking was easy as well.
The level of service and food was not matching the price. Offering only an option of a set menu perhaps doesn’t suit the location and presentation of the restaurant.
Amazing food, every dish had so much flavour. Fantastic for gluten free.
As ever, Pidgin delights and surprises. This week’s menu is outstanding. Beautifully presented, it’s a colourful summer menu that delivers new flavour combinations and complementary textures.
We have been meaning to dine at Pidgin for the last few years...it was worth the wait as could not fault with anything.
Birthday celebration was a hit in Pidgin...I would definitely recommend this restaurant
Impeccable cooking in an intimate neighbourhood venue.
It was a great venue for a date night. We thoroughly enjoyed the set menu and it was an all round fantastic dining experience.
Pidgin goes from strength to strength. The [always new] magic the team is churning out week after week is amazing and I rarely had a sub [Pidgin] standard dish. This is important since, with the usual 1+ week that you need to book ahead, you wont know what will be on menu when you dine. As an additional bonus, you now get 6-7 courses, up from the original 4., and the price is unbeatable. Bravo!
Poetry in food. Food were beautifully crafted and presented. Each dish a delightful surprise.
Lovely friendly staff accommodated us even though we were an hour early! The restaurant was quiet and calm, they didn’t seem to rush any of the customers, creating a slow unfolding dining experience. Highly recommend.
A fantastic restaurant - a quiet setting, attentive service, incredible food and a very creative menu. Would recommend to anyone for a special occasion.
Exceptional! Fabulous staff, beautiful interior, and most of all - exceptional food! Will be back soon!
The service absolutely ruined this experience for us. We were rushed through every course and the female waitress seemed to have a severe attitude problem and was consistently rude to us. I would absolutely not recommend this restaurant to anyone. For the same price you are better to go to a known, high quality restaurant as opposed to this overpriced, tiny restaurant with decent food, a negative vibe and terrible service
Got charged £80 even though trying to cancel a day in advance I thought was shocking really gutted As I was excited to eat here but will not now .
We went for my boyfriend's birthday meal late on a Saturday night and it was the perfect way to celebrate. Delicious food and each course was carefully introduced by staff. Great place with an intimate atmosphere. Highly recommend for a special occasion!
Delicious food and excellent service.
This was my second visit to Pidgin and it was even better than the the first.
Every one of the many courses was both innovative in its content and quite delicious to eat
All of it was served with a delightful explanation and in a very professional and calm way
My request to take only a half size wine pairing was immediately agreed
A delightful experience in every way
Delicious and original food in an elegant, understated setting
Lovely restaurant. Brilliant food and wine. Great service. Will definitely go back.
Really nice and innovative food that comes painfully during the course of 2 and 1/2 hours. The venue is small and terribly noise. If you don't mind noise and long waits, the food is worth trying.
We chose the wine paring For dinner.
The food was absolutely gorgeous and really unique.
Overall dinner was a fantastic experience.
For me I would say that the service, while was good, was a very cold - my husband did not mind it, so maybe this is a personal choice?
4th time back and everytime is just as amazing as the last. Amazing food and staff. Incredible flavour combinations that you wouldn't imagine would go. Need to go back soon!
Amazing food, and attentive service. I would definitely recommend for a visit for a special occasion. Every course was a real delight from the crab morsel to start, to the fudge at the end. The skate was fantastic, the the beef with it was a real surprise package.
At Pidgin a tasting menu is the only possibility. Dishes were mostly delicious. However, the food was let down by the nature of the service which was brusque and unfriendly. We had the feeling that the staff were the most important people in the restaurant and we were being graciously allowed to dine there. Whilst we don't want to sit whilst a long lecture on the food is delivered, we did find that explanations of dishes as they were served and wine pairings were a little too rushed. As well as the food, a positive is the noise level is not too high - it's a small restaurant with only a few tables. But I wouldn't go back.
Lots of interesting ideas in the food. Some of it was baffling and just odd though. We came home after spending just short of £200 for 2 people and ate crumpets! The homemade tonic water was delicious though
Intimate, charming and delightful as always. Sublime food and wine. Special neighbourhood restaurant.
Best and most interesting food I’ve had in London for a long time, lovely atmosphere - cannot recommend highly enough!
This really was an experience, the portions were small but very satisfying and flavoursome. We were so full at the end, we struggled with the final dessert. Everything was really wonderful, the attention to detail was unexpected. The staff was open to accommodating a pescetarian, a vegetarian and even an aversion to seafood. Which is normally a struggle - but we were all very happy with what was offered in lieu.
Superb food in a relaxed and convivial environment. No problem serving one vegetarian and one standard set menu to the same table. For me, the highlight was an apparently simple dish of new peas and beans, the latter chopped into tiny pieces, served with even tinier pieces of pickled rhubarb. It sounds ridiculous but tasted of spring. Can't wait to go back to see what miracles are conjured up for future weeks' menus.
Amazing experience -my mum said this is the best menu she has ever had ! (And it wasn’t her first:))
Wonderful food, delicate flavours, beautifully prepared and served. The restaurant is a bit small and noise levels csn get up. Service is professional but rather unpersonal.
Food is outstanding. The best in London.
Pidgin is a gem, can't recommend it enough. The set menu was excellent and they were really good at adapting it to dietary requirement. Most of the dishes were pretty much perfect, with great attention to presentation, textures and balancing of flavours. I'll be coming back.
Some of the dishes were exquisite such as the pork belly and melon ice cream however others were a bit disappointing. The pastry on the pig cheek sausage roll was not buttery enough and the meat too dry not to mention that it was ridiculously tiny. The pea dish with horseradish snow was unremarkable, the flavours just didn't work.
A pleasure to go to a restaurant with such a confident identity. Excellent, interesting food, presented with real style and care. One of the vegetarian options didn’t perhaps reach the same heights, and both desert courses, whilst being delicious, mixed textures in a way that wasn’t quite our thing, but that’s only a very minor point. The staff were somewhat offhand, which was surprising as it is a very intimate space.
Pidgin is a small and unique restaurant. It is cosy and uncomplicated but the food is incredible. It was exactly what we were looking for.
Asparagus, mackerel and the second lamb dishes were outstanding. The paired wines were interesting, the Nebbiolo fantastic, but we should have shared. We drank too much! A memorable dining experience.
We thought that all of the food was truly delicious, we loved all the interesting and unique flavour combinations. The ambitious plan to reinvent the menu every week meant that some dishes were less refined than others. The restaurant itself is cosy, intimate, has really nice vibes and the staff are wonderful! Overall, we would definitely go back and recommend to anyone looking for a special evening.
Excellent creative food by artisans ...
