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.
Chipotle Sour Cream
Wild Mushroom Mole
39.50 for a barbecue feast and bottomless cocktails, wines and beers (our
selection of drinks). 90 minutes starts at the time of the booking.
Great food , meat cooked exactly as it should be would recommend highly
Great food and service, cocktails excellent too.
Really vibrant ambiance with highly recommended seating around an open kitchen. Food was excellent, as was the friendly service.
It was good to be back and it all felt quite normal. The vouchers we bought in lockdown meant our overall bill was pretty small. Staff were very welcoming, as usual.
Great service and food and drinks were superb! Thank you
One of my favourites. Sitting at the bar is the best. Good to have you back!
Always outstanding. Excellent food, excellent service. Excellent drinks.
Do not leave without eating the cookie!
I'm a frequent Temper customer and this was my 3rd time at the Soho branch, This was our first meal out since Lockdown! We were here to celebrate 3 lockdown birthdays including my own.
There were 3 of us and we ordered:
Pork al pastor tacos
Guacamole & chips
Beef rib carnitas
The chips and guac were disappointing - not a lot of guac for the amount of chips you get. The guac wasn't anything special either. The tacos however were delicious. The prawns tasted super fresh. Wings were great as usual. Out of the mains, the chicken carnitas were actually the best out of the 3. The beef rib and goat were both overcooked unfortunately.
The sides were good. The hispi cabbage is one of my favourite sides at Temper and never disappoints. The burrata is okay - probs not the best choice for our choice of starters and main as it didn't go with anything.
All in all - not our best meal at Temper, but could be worse.
Was my partners 30th birthday in the booking asked for a nice table and we got put on what I feel like was probably the worst table in the entire restaurant, food was very underwhelming and under seasoned. Part of the order was missing by the time it arrived after getting someone's attention we had finished our mains after this we had had enough asked for the bill and left.
Overall not a bad eating experience but we did expect more.Maybe it suffered as a result of recently reopening and we imagined a little bit more class but the ambience seemed a bit threadbare and not enough chiaroscuro. The truffle potatoes were extremely poor and we told the waiter so.
Would recommend but overall could do better.
Really lovely service - very welcoming, friendly and helpful. And the food is delicious!
Very good overall. Sat at counter. Great service. I would just recommend ordering some steak rather than just othet things or it may be a bit too burger/kebab-like.
Amazing steak served with beef fat potatoes. Loved it
Great to see restaurants opening up again, it was a pleasure to dine at Tempur Soho and the food was delicious
Really tasty food but small portions. Would definitely go again to try the steak that they didn't have at the time
Our first meal out post lockdown. Very good food and wine - we had a really good time. Friendly service.
Loved it! The food was delicious, the goats cheese taco especially. The gin cocktails were delicious and the cookie dessert was insane. Will definitely return to explore the things we didnt manage to eat the first time.
The vibe was sleek and hip and the food was delicious. I cannot wait to go back
Delicious steaks, tacos, cocktails and mezcal!
Wonderful service, and a great job creating safe distance between tables
Food definitely wasn’t what I was looking for, can clearly tell there isn’t a lot or prep going into the dishes and had very little taste.
Brought food that wasn’t ours, didn’t serve us wine until we’d almost finish our main course, then it was the wrong wine. Forgot about our pudding. Service overall was very poor and tainted the experience for us.
Pork taco excellent
Goat taco excellent
Pork carnitas excellent
Beef skewer excellent
Salad wasn't good
As always, it was amazing - great food, drink and vibe. All socially distant. Service was a little slow but it was the first night they reopened since lockdown, so totally understandable
Ok I had a porterhouse steak med rare but was medium to well
The food was outstanding! And the service too was very friendly! Music was awesome.
Great welcome when we arrived. Great table, very comfortable. Food was delicious but apart from the fish, which was hot , the food was tepid in temperature. The beef in the carnitas was amazingly flavourful ! House salad was disappointing as it was a small handful of leaves and for some bizarre reason had coconut in it which I can’t stand. £5 for the salad was expensive. We tried a number of sides including hispi cabbage and the burata with lime. Both delicious. Overall we had a great meal and would come back again. Prices were a little on the high side but not too much to dissuade us from returning.
Sit at the bar and have the cheeseburger tacos.
The atmosphere is great, music is cool, food is excellent and staff is nice. Good for evening with friends or even business dinner.
Roast was really nice, we had the ribs, lamb and goat. All really delicious. We felt it was a bit light on the vegtables, this could have been solved easily as i imagine is the cheaper part of the meal.
Really enjoyed our first visit. Great location and great ambience. Was on the expensive side for what you got especially 2 small tacos for £12, but would give it a try.
The cocktails were watered down and the main courses food were cold when they arrived, but the icing on the cake was that we were asked to leave within “a few minutes” because they needed the table. We were not offered dessert, coffee or anything because there wasn’t time! Not going back...
Disappointing. Very friendly waiter boded well but then drinks and all 5 dishes were brought immediately and all at once. Chicken wings were cold and flabby. When asked they were microwaved but not much improved. Other dishes were quite tasty but had all been cooked a while and standing around. Smokestak and Black Axe Mangal do it much better.
Great atmosphere, great food. Service could of been slightly better, but it was a busy Friday evening.
Great pre theatre meal. Would recommend to others and would come again.
Firstly, we had a person who was gluten free and received mixed messages from our waiter and the lady who brought our food about what did and didn't have gluten in it which was confusing and I think unacceptable and dangerous for people with an intolerance.
Our waiter was extremely rude from the beginning and got progressively worse as the night went on. Not all the food we ordered arrived - which we highlighted to the lady who brought it but she obviously did nothing about it as it still didn't arrive. Then after we had eaten what did arrive we decided we were still hungry, so we told our waiter that instead we would like to order some steak. He did not tell us at the time that this could take up to 30 mins (which is ridiculous anyway for 1 medium cooked steak!) and given that he knew we had already eaten I feel this was especially relevant. After 30 mins we complained about how long it was taking and he assured us it would be with us in a couple of minutes. After another 15 mins the steak had still not arrived and we'd had no communication from him, so after failing to attract his attention I went up and waited for him to finish with another table so I could talk to him. He saw me and tried to ignore me again but couldn't, at this point he gave me some attitude like I was wasting his time and it was a chore to talk to me. When I told him to forget the steak and we'd have the bill instead he just said he'd have to talk to his manager, then proceeded to bring the bill over, with 12.5% service charge added to it! When he came back for payment I said we wouldn't be paying the service charge. He then brought a revised bill without even questioning it or saying anything. At no point did we receive any sort of concern, apology or care that we were still hungry after waiting 45 minutes and dissatisfied enough to leave without paying the service charge. Not a single word!
We paid £36.50 per head for a small amount of food and a lot of aggro, which is unacceptable!
Sadly the food was cold, for a wood fired place this was ironic.
Service was unenthusiastic
Sad as I had been before and it was great!
Waiter was unhelpful, vague and didn’t explain the menu properly
Consequently we ordered incorrectly and had to re-order some dishes and had too much of others
Not a great experience
The food was delicious
We had a waiter who was either not happy with being at work on a weekend or not happy serving us. Made it a poor experience
From start to finish we both had an amazing time. The food was delicious. The music was interesting and a joy to listen too. Our server was patient and explained the whole process clearly. Will come again with friends
Thank you for your lovely review! Looking forward to having you back with pals soon! Team Temper
Delicious food, would include more sauces with some of the tacos e.g. the mushroom ones because otherwise its just seasoned mushrooms on a taco. Otherwise, food delicious, great atmosphere, music and service, and the food costs how much it is worth. This is still my favourite restaurant in London - but bring back the chili bone marrow taco!!!
Hi KatS, Thank you for the feedback - glad to hear we are still your fave. And I agree, the bone marrow flatbread was the BOMB!! Hopefully we'll get it back on the menu one day... Team Temper
