Private Dining

Will Ricker’s pan-Asian trailblazer marches on – an ever-popular rallying point for Notting Hill’s smart-set socialisers, glitterati and hedge-fund moguls. They come here for the cool vibe, the music and the cocktails – not forgetting the cooking. The menu hops cheerily around South-East Asia.

Arrived 12.30 for lunch on Market Day. Restaurant was empty and soulless..we persevered and had a surprisingly ok lunch. Fusion Asian ...Dumplings v. good, Thai chicken in "banana leaf - not"..surprisingly ok, prawn red curry - ok, vegetable tempura.. crisp not soggy..ok, mochi -yum. All washed with bottle of Prosecco and Coffee. £130 for three ...for the price ok. So foodie value is good..menu a tad yesterday. Fusion needs to be more modern and challenging.

Ambience could be improved...tables set out in the back, bit stuffy and dark, so yesterday...toilets fine. Needs a interior decorator to make it light, fresh and fun! Unless ambience changes to attract the crowd this place will not be in business..

Front of house needs to be welcoming and on point..Efficient, Service, Smile..

Waitress was attentive and charming..

Bit over-priced for what it is, service was a little intrusive and we were constantly asked to order more wine before finishing our glasses! Good ambience though, and decent dim sum.

We were told that we had the table for two hours. At 9pm though we were asked (politely) to move to the bar to finish our drinks. Strange that this was less than two hours in and the bar was crowded and noisy. Not a very nice end to the evening. We left our wine unfinished.

I had a booking for 4 people at 6:30pm, and we arrived on time and ordered right away based on the servers recommendations of 10 starters and 4 mains etc. Well at 8:15 she comes around and starts clearing away plates with good on them, telling us they need the table right away and we need to leave! I understand a time frame on the table, but she did not even warn us. Not only that, there were TWO OTHER Empty 4 person tables!! So it wasn’t as if there was demand and no table. We asked if we could have dessert and cocktails at the bar since she was throwing us off of our table and she said no, the bar is full. I have never been treated like this is my entire life - it ruined the evening. We had a £300+ bill and to be treated like that is beyond rude and very poor customer service. I live right down the road from the restaurant and will be sure to tell everyone I meet to never go to E&O.

Always enjoy e&o. Waiter was a bit over keen on his menu recommendations and it's always embarrassing for you in front of your guest when asked to leave just before the two hour limit. Regardless e&o is still one of my favourite restaurants in London.

Great atmosphere and FANTASTIC service (especially the bar staff). Food is good if you like the whole "_____ - Fusion" thing and so a little on the expensive side. Mostly a place for young trendies. Surrounded by the Notting Hill / Portobello Rd. experience.

Service was slow, but food was ok. Worst part was forgetting a shopping bag filled with stuff. We were one of the last groups to leave the restaurant l, so mostly staff left. When we called back the next morning to come and get it, they claimed there was nothing left behind from our table.

Used to be my favourite restaurant - consistently excellent for many years. No longer. Last night all the food was very disappointing. Had to send back the veg curry as it looked more like a soup than a curry & hardly had any vegetables in it. The legendary chilli salt squid tasted of nothing. The Singapore Noodles tasted like they'd been soaked in vinegar.

Noisy, noisy, noisy.....

It's not just the general din in this acoustic nightmare, it's the loud pop music (the place is full of fifty somethings pretending to be 18) and the consequent necessity of your (very close) neighbours to shout across the table at each other, to have any hope of being heard. Only go if you are taking out an impressionable teenager and you don't want to talk. Food good, service interrmittent if friendly.

We love e&o, but only go every 4 months or so, because the menu is small and doesn't change a lot.
There are usually variations of popular dishes and on this occassion 2 of our favourites (sea bass & spatchcock chicken) had been 'tweaked'. I only ranked the food 'good' because neither of the 'tweaks' improved previous iterations. For example, the sea bass was a little dry and difficult to get off the bone & the chicken was too spicy for my wife to eat.
Will we return? Absolutely, but probably not till September.

I had a reservation but the table was not ready and I had to wait 40 minutes for the table to become available. This is unacceptable when a table is booked in advance. However, the food and the atmosphere were really nice.

Lighting was a challenge to see the menu. Our fault as we didn't tell our server we needed to have a speedy delivery of food and drink - but food arrived just in time and we just had enough time to finish. Tasty food. Probably worthy of another try with more time ... But a note - our table was only booked for 2hr slot.

Love this place! My partner's flight was delayed so we were late for our booking and they still managed to fit us in. Service and ambiance are always well complemented by the incredible food. Even the mishap over our side veg was quickly rectified! But ask for a table not above the kitchen unless you want to feel vibrations throughout your meal ;).

I've eaten here many times but not for a few years, Arrived an hour early and asked if we could be seated, understandably the staff said they would see as they had a lot of people booked please have a drink at the bar. However after 30 mins and very few tables for 2 turning up I had to ask again and miraculously a table appeared despite there being at least 20 empty tables.

We ordered a varied selection of dishes, however the sashimi boat (£25) and wild pink shrimp (£18.50) were a complete rip off. the rest of the food was ok but didn't blow me away.

The décor is now old and dated, however the staff were friendly and attentive, which is a shame.

Sadly I think its time to put this old favourite out of its misery and replace it with a ROKA.
