"The Ninth is a restaurant by London-based chef Jun Tanaka. Located on Charlotte street in the heart of London’s buzzy Fitzrovia neighbourhood, the contemporary, yet warm and inviting 90-seater restaurant offers up simple but refined French Mediterranean-style dishes, all made for sharing.

The a la carte menu – available at lunch and dinner – focuses on the finest seasonal produce and vibrant, honest flavours. Specialties include house-cured meats and fish, robust French classics with Jun’s signature fresh twist, and lovingly thought-out vegetable dishes that are more than just ‘sides’."

We had the pleasure of enjoying great food at The Ninth last week. We shared 8 different dishes and all were deliciously and thoughtfully prepared. The Barbajuan, oxtail croquettes and sourdough bread and butter were enticing appetizers which we followed with Panzanella and fromage Fran’s. The panzanella combination was deliciously fresh. Our rabbit and Osso Buco tortellini should have topped u off but we were glad we overindulged with the amazing desserts of Pain Perdu and White peaches. I would go again for the wonderful texture of the Sourdough and Pain Perdu alone. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food and most accommodating. I was sadly too excited about the food to remember his name.

I’m very glad I took my parents here on their visit to London - the food never disappoints and it truly is an affordable foodie adventure to navigate the innovative yet flavorful menu at The Ninth. My parents loved it, and it remains a top pick for when I have visitors due to the variety, value, and amazing wine list!

It was my second time in The Ninth. Food is really tasty, innovative . You are encouraged to share and that works perfectly. The setting is nice, you feel relaxed. Service is excellent. And prices are far from outrageous.

I liked the restaurant. In an area where there are a number of exceptional restaurants would I chose to rush back, probably not but there was nothing to criticise.
These days I judge a restaurant on whether I am excited about taking my wife there for dinner sometime soon and whilst I had no criticism this did not hit that spot!

I would go back to The Ninth in a heartbeat! The food was delicious AND reasonably priced. Our waiter (I think his name was Matteo) was really attentive and we ended up having a great conversation with him. I also loved the decor and the warm lighting. Definitely check it out!

Pastas, mains and desserts were good but the appetisers that we tried were not as amazing. All in all it was a great meal in a lovely setting. Beetrot tart was my fav dish.

We ate off the set menu with mixed results. Food was good but not memorable which I might have expected from a michelin starred restaurant. Service was reasonably attentive but lacked warmth. Set menu good value though and portion sizes were reasonable.

Wonderful flavours. Order everything (but especially the lamb en croûte). A real treat. Reasonably priced wine list for the type of venue.

Not my idea of a Michelin- starred restaurant. Food was good but not great, tables too close, uncomfortable wood chairs, and so noisy you have to shout. No tablecloths, wait staff in jeans, ugly black stoneware plates, food piled on with no finesse. Two forks and knives would be my rating.

Small restaurant, but nice vibe.
Started poorly, as they didn’t have our booking even though we’d had a text confirmation from them! Anyway, they found us a table.
Service was good and friendly, and the staff had good knowledge and recommended nice wines.
Loved the small tapas/sharing plates format.
Food was the star and the risotto and crispy rabbit were exceptional. Only complaint was the Turbot was on the bone and we weren’t warned. Taste Tatin was also good.
Will definitely return!

This French-inspired restaurant had it all. Central location in London, very stylish but also cosy interior. Food was excellent and the cuisine inventive but still classic. Meals can be shared among friends, but works also for those who want to order their own selection. Service was friendly and attentive.

It was a chance find when planning a get-together with a friend near work and it paid off. The quality of the food and service would be hard to beat. I will need to go back and try the menu options we did not order this time around.

I could go on and on about The Ninth all day as I do not think I will better this dining experience this year! I have given this restaurant top marks on everything as the food the service and everything else you would expect was delivered. The most satisfying and flavorable meal I have ever experienced. Many thanks The Ninth, I look forward to my next visit.

Absolutely amazing value. We had to wait a while to book a table due to demand, but well worth it. Lovely oysters and innovative twists on mains and desserts. We shared 5 plates after our oysters which was fine for two greedy people like us. Good service, and bill was much less than you would expect for a place of this quality. Only issue was space: tables a little close for any intimate conversations, but not much they can do with a relatively small space.

Food a different level, in the top few I've ever had.

Above average in price, but tremendous value for how good it is.

Excellent wine choices to compliment the food.

We did a lot of research on restaurants in London for our weeklong vacation but hands down The Ninth was the best meal that we had the entire trip. The food is superbly prepared, the meal was paced very well, and the wait staff was knowledge and courteous. I feel like we could come back and order all different dishes and still be blown away by the quality of the food.

I have been to The Ninth a few times and food was always great. Good vibe and friendly staffs at the restaurant. Lunch menu is a very good deal, £19/2dishes and £25/3dishes. The seabass carpaccio and duck breast are my favorite. Don't forget to save room for their French toast. It was heavenly!!
