    A lovely concept, being tucked inside the greengrocers at Borough Market, and using produce from the market. It's relaxed, charming and cosy (be aware the trains are literally overhead so that is noisy as and when one passes & it does get chilly so dress accordingly - they provide blankets and heaters, but a little strapless number and killer heels probably isn't the best choice). The food was very good. Interesting combinations, nicely balance flavours and textures. Flavours are personal. For me there was one stand out, exceptional dish, 4 or 5 good ones and a couple that didn't do it for me personally. And for me it was a little too much food. I think the wines are overpriced (or more to the point there isn't a lower budget option available, which makes it more a £150-200/head meal than £120 and I'm not sure that's great value for money, even in London. With access to great produce and waste that "felt" punchy. But if you want a veg-centric menu, beautiful cooked and plated in a quirky location, then it would be a great option.

    This was an absolutely outstanding experience. Delicious and creative dishes; expertly explained; intriguingly presented. An unusual but different location. It’s under cover, but not indoors - don’t worry, they have blankets and heaters if needed. Overall, one of the best gourmet experiences in London. It’s not cheap, but for what you get, it’s excellent value. I highly recommend it!

    Absolutely delicious and unusual food. Small menu. Chefs came out to describe each dish they had prepared which was a nice touch. Lovely wine but like the food, very expensive. Would definitely recommend but it is high end prices. Loved the ambience - heated seats and blankets if needed.

    It is a hidden culinary gem of London. Food-exquisite, service-outstanding, ambiance-cozy yet not casual. I keep on coming back and bringing different people every time to this place and everyone loves it. One constructive observation-empty plates could be picked up more efficiently but this is a minor, easily fixable thing.

    A wonderful experience from the minute you walk into the best fruit and veg stall 🫶 And notice some tables at the back of it. We loved the food and service and staff. Every morsel was tasty and delicious. A bit expensive but worth it for special occasions! Go and experience it for yourself. I am still drooling at the onion dish. Fabulous evening.

    Had a very enjoyable evening, choose the a la carte menu, both of us enjoyed all three courses plus had a cheese between between us. Food very well presented without being over the top with gimmicks that they get in some places, all with suttle but great favours. The setting behind the stalls in the market is different but was a nice change, still the loos were very good and not basic. Staff very helpful friendly and efficient, folding napkins when leaving table which seems to happen less and less these days but shows attention to detail. Will return again when in the mood for something a little unusual.

    My Husband and I went to Turnips by Tomas Lidakevicius for his birthday. We had the tasting menu which was a fabulous dining experience! All 10 dishes were a pure pleasure, the restaurant's atmosphere is intimate and relaxed and both the staff and the chef's team were very friendly, passionate and professional. We highly recommend it!

    Wasn’t sure when we sat down as the space is quite small and the setting is obvs linked to a working market stall and so very rustic. That said, I felt the space is very well managed and the food was superb. High quality throughout.

    The location of the restaurant is great and we loved the concept of being born out of the vegetable stand. The food was good and the restaurant was accommodating to offer options for pescatarians and vegetarians. The presentation of all plates was beautiful. We had a nice dinner at this restaurant. However the service was very rushed (4 courses served in 30 minutes). We had to ask twice to slow the service down and once were even asked to finish so they could put down another plate. After a while the team did however respond nicely about it and respected our wish. The food was good however value for money we have seen better at local competitors (bill was 400£).

    Everything from food to service was outstanding. We had the lunch taster menu which was imaginative and delicious. Each course was explained to us and the quality of the ingredients was top notch. The pre-dessert of forced rhubarb with its delicate jus was sublime - I love the way they use ingredients that are in season. Would highly recommend dining at Turnips with Tomas Lidakevicius!

    Found this restaurant by chance when looking online, and wow! how lucky were we. Not the most glamorous entrance, but the ambience there was great, and the staff and food were beyond the best we could ever imagine!! Absolutely superb food, with surprise dishes we had never tried before. The staff, including the chefs, are just excellent, and see to your every need, carefully and delightfully explaining each dish to us. The most delicious meal, and best service, we have ever had, anywhere in the world!!!

    We had a tasting menu for five. The setting was a bit surprising as we did not expect it to be right in the market. But in some way this brought the produce to the centre stage, with the market in the background. The food was amazing, full of aromas and pleasant combinations of intricate flavours. Each dish was described to us by a different member of the team including the head chef himself. All the staff were very attentive and polite. Overall we had a great time.
