The salad I had was just okay. What was really appalling about Thomas' cafe is the fact that I was unable to pack up my leftovers even though they had to-go boxes for their cakes. One of my greatest vices is food waste as it's a huge contributer to GHG emissions. They said taking food away was against their policy because they couldn't gaurantee the quality of the food once it left its premises (but what abot the cakes?). I will not be going back. Thomas' is part of the Burberry stores and the company is meant to be highly ranked for its sustainability policies. Their environmental ethos need to extend to the Cafe as well.

Beautiful building, decor and generally a beautiful place to be. Could have one or two more vegetarian options on the lunch menu, maybe.
I will be back soon to try the afternoon tea

Terrible service, they had clearly not checked the incoming reservation and did not have a table. Servers are not trained well - don’t know how to accommodate guests. Went for afternoon tea/business meeting but will not go again.

The service was very poor. They got our food order wrong, our drinks were wrong, we kept asking for water and it didn't come and then we had to ask for our bill 3 times.

Very pretty area for afternoon tea. My girlfriend and I had the upstairs all to ourselves for our late afternoon tea. The room was very neat and the ambiance was great, sitting by a window overlooking the streets below. The assortment of teas and food was great as well as the service. Overall, good experience.

Excellent service and beautifully cooked food in the most stunning building. We love the atmosphere and the simple elegance of the food and decor. The service and friendliness of management and staff is a joy. A great place to meet friends for brunch ... an oasis of stylish calm just off Regent Steet. I recommend the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and sour dough toast which the chef takes to another level add fresh pink grapefruit juice and a pot of English Brrakfast Tea. Sit by the fire in winter. Divine!

The service was bad! They just prepare us a table upstairs and we are the only one, not even a waiter, we waited 10 minuets for a waiter to come, so we asked to be transfer down so we can be noticed! We did and we waited 5 more minuets for our order to be taken, then they bring our order wrong and missed and late all in one dining, there was an incident that i did not like nor understand; when we ordered the scones, the waiter said its not available, and at the same time i heard other people orders scones and the waiters confirm the order and brought the scones to their table, i asked another water “as a test”to add scones to our table, so he confirmed and when he went to our first waiter became mad and i overheard him saying “why you took their order, go back to them and cancel it” i was like why though!!!! It shows that i was mad, and then they disappear, when I asked for the check, another waiter came and said we removed the drinks and its on the house!
Did not like my experience at all!

Poor service. We booked a table but it wasn’t ready for 15 minutes. The brunch took a long time to get ready, the seating was bad quality. We were treated badly because of our student appearance. Our coats were not taken to the cloakroom, we were not asked which table we preferred but were seated in the worst one even though we were the first ones there. Would not recommend if you are just visiting London it’s not a worthwhile visit if you are not a regular client.

I had such a lovely time at Thomas’s. The food was spectacular, the setting was beautiful and the service was second to none.
We had afternoon tea which was so yummy. The presentation was breathtaking and there were some interesting twists on tradition. I would highly recommend and can’t wait to go back for brunch next time.

After seeing this cafe all over Instagram, we thought we would give it a try. We were quite underwhelmed in the end. The staff are very attentive and friendly. However, the drinks took ages and the coffees weren’t hot. Then we ordered cakes which didn’t arrive till some time after the coffee and had been forgotten I am sure. One of the cakes we had was delicious, packed with pistachios. The cafe itself looked lovely but we were sat near the door and there was a fair amount of bustle at the front door and felt like sitting in a foyer. I had envisaged a different space which Ithink must be the upstairs dining area. There was a nice table at the back which was next to a fireplace if you’re a larger party.
All in all I would say this is style over substance which is disappointing given it’s a great location for a mid shopping stop.

Nice place, very pretty. But took ages to bring food out and food was cold when it came out. They did give us a discount without us asking which was nice of them, but I wouldn’t go back for food. Maybe just for drinks & cakes

The cake s was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. I have reservation and the waiter take me to the upstairs seat by windows. The views wasn't good and the sun was in my eyes. When I finished , my friend and I separate to paid the bill. The waiter calculate the wrong amount and overcharged. The Waiter attitude was very bad and didn't feel sorry. Finally, we told the manerge to refund our money. I feel they shouldn't ask the server change!

Fish was over cooked and dry, French fries were undercooked (I know how possible!), I sent them back. They recooked the same batch which then tasted like cardboard and they still charged us for them even though they arrived well after our main course was finished. The cherries on the pistachio cake are from a can and very sour.
Friendly waiters but very slow service. They served our starters at the same time as the main course.
