Dreadful

Should have been wise to it when I could not get anyone to answer the phone when making and when changing a booking

Service inattentive and incompetent. Food on offer at lunchtime worthy of a 1970s sitcom. Very poor indeed

Atmosphere zero. Had been told that i could not book before 1300 only to find place completely empty at 1230

This place will die unless someone pays it a lot of attention. truly awful

Service was appalling, we ordered starters which turned up with main, took away mains then reservered the, then had the cheek to add 12% service which we got them to remove!!

I booked this restaurant for its location, we went here in New Years Eve to meet up with family and it was great. The food was acceptable and they didn't have a problem with us staying there for hours (admittedly still ordering drinks).
Based on our previous experience I deliberately booked again through Open Table, there was no record of our booking when we arrived, although they gave us a table without any drama. Service was ridiculous and we had to literally wave down a waiter. Drinks then took 10mins to arrive. We finally ordered food and 3 of us ordered salad, for 2 the mixed leaves were black and slimy. The 3rd was a Caesar salad alledgedly, the lettuce was fine (lettuce, anchovies and 2 croutons), but the chicken breast (extra item) was so over cooked it was difficult to cut and not possible to eat.
We will not return and I wouldn't recommend to anyone. Shame, what a difference eight months makes.

Food was indifferent and although service was friendly, it was inefficient. One meal had to be sent back because it was cold. Despite encouraging faster service, one diner had to wait so long for his dessert that it had to be cancelled, and this was just cheese and biscuits!

Really disappointing dinner. Avoid the burgers, especially the Piri piri chicken burger as that was simply the chicken strip appetiser with some red sauce in a bun. Another to avoid is the belly pork since that was such a small piece of meat that looked like it was 80% fat. The portion size for the pasta dishes look decent however.

There was also no ambience whatsoever, where even a normal volume conversation seemed to attract evil looks from other tables. Additionally, a chair broke whilst a friend was mid-meal. No staff were present so we had to swap the chair ourselves.

If you're looking for a good meal on London Street, you'll probably have a better and more enjoyable time meal at the chippy two doors down or the Sawyer Arms pub on the corner.

The £7.99 lunch menu was of good value, but everything else was very average. Not impressed by the service: I asked for a jug of water for the table, but after a long wait and chasing, we were given glasses of water which we quickly drained as we were thirsty! Waiter couldn't say 'chenin blanc'--it came out as 'tchenin blank'. Places were't set (we eventually took cutlery from the next table), food took ages to come and the only way we managed to pay was by going up to the bar. We were't charged service charge for a long lunch, though, which is at least fair as we pretty much served ourselves! Staff, though not attentive, were pleasant.

this was the first time I've eaten here and will not do so again. There are SO many other good restaurants in the area, that I would recommend. I booked here for Xmas day dinner. When I arrived at 6:30pm, they were out of several of their set menu specials. The service was very slow and the food was just so-so. Do yourself a favor and try the other local restaurants and skip this one!

It's slim pickings in Paddington to find a restaurant for breakfast that isn't a tourist trap. This place was no exception as is part of a hotel and full of guests. Service - whilst polite - was extremely poor and virtually non-existent at times. We had to wait an inordinate length of time to place our orders and then had to remind them of missing items which was awkward as I was with a client. The quality of the food was what you'd expect from a greasy spoon - thin, white pieces of toast (even though I'd requested wholemeal), one big mushroom that had just been grilled. For 2 of us it was only £11 so couldn't expect too much but I wish I'd trusted my instincts and ventured further afield than Paddington for a decent venue.

Hotel Indigo is a very handy place to meet around Paddington Station. The food was tasty and well presented the staff were courteous and friendly but sometimes service was a little slow. The bill was quite high being over £30 a head for two courses each. The food was reasonably priced but the drinks were a large portion of the bill. Order your wine by the bottle, not the glass!

The London Street Brasserie

They got one of our starters wrong and then looked at us in disbelief when we questionned it. It took nearly 2 and half hours to serve 4 of us a starter and a main. My steak was over cooked and the pepper sauce was effectively gravy. Would not recommend,

The London Street Brasserie is very handy for Paddington station in London. It's a surprisingly pleasant add opn to an hotel - I often find they are not great, but this is an exception and would stand up on its own as a brasserie. Very helpful and friendly waiters, free wifi and good food. Lunchtime set menu had a good choice (3 at each course) and very well priced

Late lunch at the London Street Brasserie was enjoyable. The venue looks good and with large glass windows at the front and modern decor.
Set menu was great value for 2 courses, £9.95 and the beetroot and chorizo salad starter was a highlight. I had the Hereford steak which was a bit more pricey at £15+, it's well executed with rocket, a very tasty peppercorn gravy and a garlic tomato puree though felt potatoes or vegetables should be included.
Service was great, friendly and attentive.

Very pleasant experience overall. Relaxed atmosphere and good food. The only problem was the waiter was over-zealous in collecting items form the table before people had finished their course. I'm sure he was only trying to please and be efficient on his first day...but it was a bit awkward when the table was being cleared while one person was still eating!

My friend and I went for lunch at The London Brasserie and chose the set lunch menu. Unfortunately they were having problems in the kitchen as the chef was off sick and we had a very disappointing lunch. The artichoke salads took ages to come and then when our mains arrived my haddock was still frozen in the middle and I had to send it back. The potatoes were supposed to be coconut and there wasn't a whiff of it! Not the usual standard we have enjoyed in the past so were very disappointed.

Edwards was a pleasant change fom chain restaurants in Bromley but while food was good and well presented it lacked much wow. Cumberland sausage and mash even on a cheap lunch set meal was not inspired although mussels and pasta was spicy and excellant. Would try it it the evening on a special offer but looked pricey otherwise

We missed the special set menu offer which no longer runs on Friday evenings. As a result, we found it a bit pricey and one of the main courses a bit of a let down, but otherwise high quality food
