Steakhouse
Whole animal barbecue taqueria and steak house. temper City is similar to the flagship in Soho but bigger, with the addition of a modern day steak menu where chefs butcher steaks from whole cow, lambs and other animals. We offer the best value prime meat in London. Daily specials and huge cuts for large parties - or for those that have a bigger appetite. The counter dining seats surround our open fire pit, where whole cuts are tossed onto the grill to slow cook.

temper City has one of the biggest tequila and mezcal lists around. There's a huge cocktail and gin offering, plus temper lager on tap. temper was recently voted the best cocktail restaurant in the UK, and temper City is no exception.

There are large booths, banqueting tables, bar seats to watch the kitchen at work, a huge private-hire mezzanine and an outdoor area where you can catch the best of the British summer or wintertime.

We take reservations throughout the day and we always try to

    Lovely friendly staff, needed a bit more advice with the menu, the rib eye was unavailable so had to order something else and was disappointed. Would go there again.

    temper CityResponded on 8 August 2022Hi Collette, Thank you for taking time to leave us a review. Very disappointing you didn't get to try the ribeye, however.. this means you have a reason to come see us again! We look forward to hosting you again soon! Thank you.

    The restaurant looks really nice and the food was (very) overpriced but not bad. Just a shame the service standard really ruins both these values. Our waitress was really rushed, asking if we were ready to order seconds after we set down. She then blatantly told us she was going to rush through explaining the menu. Not sure why everything was so rushed as we were one of the very few people there. Anyways, we ordered 2 steaks and 2 sides of fries. However (after ~45 minutes of waiting..), only 1 steak came. I explained that I'd ordered one too and they said they could put a 450g cut on (i.e. double the size and price the waitress initially quoted us lol), however; we weren't exactly interested in waiting another 45 mins when we were already in a rush just to spend £39 on a steak I didn't really want anymore. The manager apologised and seemed to genuinely want us to have a good experience but unfortunately the same can't be said at all about the other staff that interacted with us. Even when we ordered a coke, asked for the bill, etc. it took forever. Mistakes happen, it's fine, but usually a restaurant would at least be apologetic and even provide a discount - this one gave no such apology and asked for a service charge. Pretty clear to me now why it was so empty and I unfortunately can't see myself recommending it to anyone given you could walk about 10m in any given direction and have a much better experience at one of the surrounding restaurants that had customers flowing out the door. Walked around the corner to Chipotle to finally get my dinner once we left and it restored my faith in eating out.

    temper CityResponded on 6 August 2022Dear Mike, Firstly I would like to thank you for your feedback, it is a key part of our process to ensure we are continuously reviewing and improving our customers experiences. I would like to sincerely apologise that on this occasion you felt let down by our service. I would like to reassure you that we will be looking into this further, and taking your comments on board. No experience should be less than eventful! We do hope you will return in the near future. Please do let me know if you would like to book again and I will ensure you are well looked after!

    Five stars doesn't cover it. Me and my sister have been coming to Temper city for our birthdays together for years and they're never less than outstanding but this time the team went above and beyond to make it really special for my sister's birthday. We had a fantastic time (as always), we can't wait to come back!

    temper CityResponded on 8 August 2022Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for leaving us this incredible review. It is always a pleasure to see you and your sister, especially for birthday celebrations.

    The food here is great. It is always of a consistently high standard. Where it falls over is the service. There servers are knowledgeable about the food which is great and also very pleasant. However the amount of time and the inaccuracy of drinks service is rather frustrating to say the least.

    Loved our visit to temper city, the vibe in the restaurant was great, we sat at the open kitchen bar which we loved for a casual dinner, wouldn’t advise if there’s more than 2/3 people though as would be more difficult to chat. Food was all really tasty, a little overpriced but didn’t have a bad dish. We went on a Tuesday evening and the service was great Would go back again

    Our steaks were delicious but for the price would have expected the service to be much better. We were essentially abandoned and had to chase for drinks, plates, and a side that arrived when we'd already finished the main.

    As a group of 7, we were advised to order a range of big plates and small plates to share. We opted for a selection of tacos, beef brisket, lamb with kimchi, a porterhouse steak (cooked to perfection), fries and sides. All full of flavour. A shout out to our waiter, Charles, who was so helpful, attentive and good humoured throughout our long lunch.

    Not a wide range of cocktails and the ones we had weren’t very nice. The food was very salty. The tapas were ok. But the steak and chips were too salty for me. No need to add rock salt to steak. The problem with salt is that you can always add it but you can’t take it away

    Dining at temper City yesterday was a last minute decision because other options I might normally select were not available. Things do happen for a reason because now I can say temper City will be a 'go to' dining experience for friends and clients. Exception service throughout was provided by Nix our server; really welcoming and knowledgable and you could tell she loves her job. The food was exceptional - pork rib, sea bass and 60 day dry aged beef were all incredible. Throw in some temper fries and we couldn't have been happier with the whole experience. Very lively crowd in on a warm Thursday evening in Central London - a really top night!

    Fantastic food, really well priced. Probably best food for the price . 3 of us, 3 rounds of drinks..... plenty of food. £135. Cant ask more than that. Only point I would make is we tried all 3 types of lager, and didn't like any. Fine if you like craft beer. But wouldn't stop us going back, and have already recommended to a friend.

    Well, where to start? Temper City is hidden away off in a little side street. The entrance is pretty non discript save for the Temper sign sitting above the door. You enter into a dark and moody open space with the open kitchen in the middle. The food is off the scale, it’s kind of a steak tapas thing, order plates to share with may be a superb steak just to finish off. When I say the food is off the scale, I mean it, the food is stunningly fantastic; the pork rib is one of the best things I’ve tasted, period. Throw in the super friendly and helpful staff, moody atmosphere, and well pretty much perfection!

    Server was nice but way too busy for decent service. Rare steak over done. Sadly an average experience.
