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.

We serve Bottomless BBQ Brunch every Saturday and our famous roast every Sunday.

    Food has definitely gone downhill since the last time I went a while back. Average at best. But great ambience and fun place.

    Good: Food tasted good & staff were really friendly Bad: We have both got very bad stomachs today… The service was very slow (not the waiting staff’s fault - they were great), but we ordered a couple of different dishes and once we’d finished our tacos, the steak didn’t come out for another 40 mins. We had the slow service issue last time, but thought it was a one off and worth going back for the food. However, after the repeat of this, combined with the dodgy stomach, I won’t be going back unfortunately.

    Great experience with good service and food. Less of a fan of the model of food coming out as it’s ready as we’d finished 3 of our 4 “main dishes” before the sides came out but I understand the model they are going for. Beef brisket and Lamb were particular highlights but everything was great!

    Staff were all super friendly from start to finish. Food and cocktails were yummy. Do not be deceived by the “tapas” style when ordering. Portions are reasonable. Highly recommend the beef tacos, cabbage and lamb. Great atmosphere, would visit again.

    We first went to Temper Soho on 3/02 for my son’s birthday celebration and had an awesome time, food, service was top notch and so we decided to try the Sunday Roast this time as we were in London on a Sunday. The service was a bit hit and miss as we didn’t seem to have a designated server, but as we were sat near the bar we were able to catch different servers attentions, the food was super tasty but could have been a lot hotter! The atmosphere was great like previously but disappointed with the service and temperature of the food. Despite these issues we will definitely be back.

    Temper is always good, but the Monday offer of steak/ frites for £20 is really excellent value. I thought the steak might be smaller than usual, or a lesser cut, but it was neither, and it was great. A really good deal. I didn't try the burgers but I saw others being served them and they also looked really good. So I'll be going back to try them next Monday.

    Service wasn’t exactly exceptional and the veggie in the group had to wait quite a bit longer for their main to come out which was shame it didn’t arrive at the same time as ours (we had roast dinners). There was a leak right by our table. Can’t obviously be helped but just didn’t make it feel that special being sat by a big yellow wet floor sign! Food was absolutely delicious though. Best roast in London by far!

    The food was lukewarm. They brought it a second time and it was not much better. The steak knife’s were blunt and well used. Our table was at the bottom of the stairs and there was a permanent draft from the front door. Over all I would say it was a case of style over substance.

    The music in the restaurant was way too loud. While I was sitting right next to my date I had to still shout for them to hear me. The waiters couldn’t understand what we were trying to order because of the music, so there was miscommunication.

    One for meat lovers. Really tasty, succulent meat dishes which pack a punch spice wise to be wary. The specials are always worth a punt, I loved the Ox Tongue Tacos. And a shoutout to Diamanté provided excellent, attentive service to our meal.

    All of the meat parts of the menu were delicious, but the carb components like the nachos and tortillas of the tacos let it down a bit. Margharitas and mezcal cocktails were really delicious and the restaurant itself feels really cool, but music was very loud which made it hard to have a conversation with people across the table. Servers are friendly but slow. Overall, good value for money for a nice restaurant, coming up to just over £30 pp for dinner and a cocktail, but not my absolute favourite.

    Really nice, friendly team however chaotic service. Advised our waitress that I am pregnant and unfortunately a number of the dishes recommended were not suitable - unpasteurised, served rare etc. Ordered a total of 4 dishes, 3 of which we went on her recommendation as pregnancy friendly. when served, another member of staff flagged that those 3 were not suitable for me to eat.. Disappointing meal unfortunately…

    The experience from the moment we walked in was amazing. Lovely vibes and decor, great to see everything being cooked in front of you also. The steak was gorgeous - cooked to perfection and seasoned well. The sides stood out and spoke for themselves too. Service was quick and attentive - I’d go back in a heartbeat and recommend to anyone to try at least once

    'Tis a fine plate of food served on a Sunday, generous and delicious. Chef Chris gave me a little beef cold cut to taste - so impressive, the rich smoke and peppery crust an absolute delight. Piotr as the place running like a machined greased with Beef Fat Mayo - slick and smooth, it's an impressive Brigade of serious skill on show. I had a sample of the pork too, fabulous stuff, but my plate of Beef was blushing pink and utterly brilliant. Who knew carrots could be so awesome! The fire was raging, the food fantastic, the price...I mean this literally...the best value for money anywhere in London, for anything!

    Visiting London to buy our sons wedding suit and birthday celebrations, we wanted to booked a restaurant we knew by reputation, having previously eaten at Temper Covent Garden, we were not disappointed at all, my husband and I decided to go for a 500g Chateaubriand it was cooked beautifully, it was so tender, it cut like butter, I had the beetroot salad which was delicious and my husband had beef fat potatoes. Our son and his fiancé had prawn tacos/ beef brisket which all looked amazing and they said was so delicious. Our waiter was really good, on the ball, just a shame I forgot his name 😕 atmosphere was great, just a truly exceptional time.

    First time after seeing some good reviews and nice looking images. We went for the Saturday bottomless brunch option. Service was very good - staff friendly and quick to refill drinks or bring new ones over. Food was tasty but the only reason I gave four stars and not five - the quantity was a little low between four people. The images online make it look like you get an entire plate per person of the set meat menu platter, but this was to be shared between two and there could’ve just been a bit more.

    The meat dishes were delicious. But tasted a bit samey once we had gone through a few. The pig crispy bits were tasty. The prawns were horrible and just tasted of water. The cabbage felt a bit undercooked & the beetroot with the curb felt like blue cheese and not curd. But beetroot overcooked and tasteless. The drinks were all over sweet and not even Traditional margaritas - shame. Disappointing overall. Switched to wine as cocktails all too sweet but severed so warm we had to ask for ice 🤷🏼‍♀️ very poor choice of wine.

    Seated at the counter which was a little small. Ambience is good, food is really moderate - i left quite a lot because was bored. Just goop. Cocktails mixed - stick to the classics. Companion who is in the industry said chef wasn’t there and that may have influenced the food.

Fire, steaks and cocktails take the lead on the menu and this smoky, sultry dining room with fire pit provides a unique backdrop for any occasion. Our private dining room offers privacy as well still feeling apart of all the action of the restaurant and open plan kitchen. It's a great space for a secret hideaway for up to 22 guests seated or 25 standing. Alternatively, for the ultimate experience, hire the entire restaurant for exclusive hire up to 150 guests. Our Group Feast Menus have been designed for larger groups, served family style to the tables for sharing, the temper way. Our Events Manager will work with you to create a bespoke event to your preferences, but with a twist!
