Steak
Dear guests,

temper is a unique barbecue, steak and open fire pit restaurant where we cook everything in front of your eyes using only wood and charcoal in huge 4.5m long fire pit in the middle of the room.

We only use the best produce available and source our meat from local farms and butcher it all ourselves in house.

We serve our meats alongside tacos, parathas, made in house and mezcal cocktails.

Each week we have our Sunday Roast that is perfect for a table of 2 or 10 with it's sharing style platter.

Delicious fusion cuisine in a good location. Super friendly and helpful staff who were the perfect level of attentive. The food was to a great standard, really enjoyable. The only thing we didn't like was the goat, the pieces we got were pure fat. But maybe that's just a personal taste. Would highly recommend

Wonderful. The service was exquisite, she was so wonderful and the team on the floor were lovely. So friendly. The senior management or whoever the ones having their own meals and then going into the kitchen were annoying and surly and wanted people to know they were in charge. Nobody cares. Carry on as you were.

Food was amazing. So delicious. The pork taco was amazing!!

Wasn’t covid safe at all. No masks worn by staff and they didn’t social distance with us at all.

It was also meant to be eat out to help out, but apparently you have to specifically request it which is pretty sneaky.

Good service, quite a way overpriced for the amount of food you receive. £33 for a steak and you have to pay for all extra's. Steak not cooked too good either (asked for medium, got a really tough t-bone that was not pleasant), I don't complain, I just don't go back.

We took the last booking on a Sunday which was a mistake.

Understood that colleagues want to get tidied up and away on time, but if we are on time for a booking we should be able to enjoy our dinner without feeling rushed.

Regular updates on the kitchen / bar etc closing whilst eating our meal made us feel pressured to hurry up and get out.

Also, roasts only on Sunday.

Great restaurant, just go on a weeknight.

Great quality and good size steaks, cooked perfectly. Service was friendly and quick.
Paranthas were delicious and a welcome surprise. We ordered the potatoes which were tasty but very rich with cheese so didn’t need so many portions.
Atmosphere was good and fun to be able to watch the chefs in the middle of the restaurant cooking.
Overall a great restaurant and looking forward to revisiting.

Great restaurant. The open kitchen gives it a great atmosphere, especially if you are seated round it.

Tacos and steaks are excellent, with some creative delicious sides.

A really good spot for a different style of food that we haven’t experienced before. The rump was insanely good, and with paratha?? Even better. Who would’ve thought it. Service was good, had a 6.30 table and the place got quite busy from 7.30 (not overly busy, enough to have a good ambience). Good mixed crowd too, couples, older groups, younger groups. The cookie deep dish dessert blew my mind, 100% worth trying. Will be back.

The food is excellent but I find it quite pricey for the portions you get especially the appetizers.
Either increase the portions a bit or lower the prices.
I would go again but only on eat out to help out. Without that discount our bill would’ve been crazy expensive

We had just the most fantastic meal at Temper. Our first one out in London in six months and so worth the wait. Very safe but also unlike a lot of places so much atmosphere. Thanks to Monty for looking after us we had a ball. The goat taco ... off the scale.

Really liked the atmosphere within the restaurant. Except it was freezing cold, where we were sat near by the chefs area and had to move. The air conditioning was to full on. Unfortunately this issue also extended to the food service area. Although the food was tasty, it was all served lukewarm or cold. It was a real shame as all the effort to cook in the grill to produce flavour was lost as it took so long to serve, it just ( in the case of the tacos etc) was only heated slightly and then served lukewarm or basically cold.
I would only go back if they sorted the food temperature out.

Although it’s known for its BBQ, there’s plenty of delicious food for vegetarians. The Korean Jackdruit Taco is divine. The staff are really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is fun.

It was Ok.
The food it wasn’t my style. Everything has spicy or a lot of garlic.
The diversity of the plates are a bit short.
The service was slow and also they don’t have the fully knowledge of the menu.

They extended the eat out scheme which prompted me and partner to dine at Temper. At the time, we saw nothing online at all saying we had to enter a code. They charged us full price for our meal. They said 'its very clear and hard to miss' we asked them to show us on our phones how to do this and they couldn't find it either and just babbled and said 'type 'eat out' in special requests' section.

Great atmosphere, incredibly tasty food, wonderful staff and lovely cocktails/wine selection! Had a lovely time eating here and will definitely be back. Some of the food is a bit more on the expensive side but they definitely made up for it with the flavour! They also play music quite loudly so it might not be suitable for people who prefer a quieter evening - however, I personally enjoyed their music choices and the young, energetic vibe.

Food was great but service, despite being very friendly, was slow. We had to chase for our mains (30+minute wait) and also chase for the bill at the end. We do enjoy taking our time when dining out, but having to chase the staff twice (when the restaurant had visibly quietened down) was a bit frustrating.

Highly recommend loading up on the tacos, we had the pork al pastor and the jackfruit which were both delicious. All cooked in front of your eyes, if you go in a pair and are lucky enough to sit at the kitchen counter. Can't wait to go back and order the rest of the menu.

Went for a Sunday lunch, food was good but almost no service (not the waiters' fault, it was pretty much only one or two people serving the whole restaurant), ended up taking 3.5 hours to finish our meal because we couldn't get the waiter's attention to order or clean up the table to move to the next course or get the bill.
