Meat

We’re the group behind Goodman, Burger & Lobster and Beast. We do a few things really well: meat, drinks and nice people! Zelman Meats is a modern day, easier steak restaurant named in honour of our boss, Misha Zelman (who you may find cooking from time to time).

We welcome crazy meat eaters with a full on passion for great steak. You can expect cocktails, craft beer, inventive wine options and plenty of beef. We like low-lit, comfortable places with great tunes and decent people so you can get the most out of your Zelman Plate/Syrah/1936 beer!

    Great place, cannot recommend it highly enough! Service is very friendly and efficient, meat cuts and burgers are perfectly cooked and delicious and the cocktails are as good as in many high-end cocktail bars in London. In fact I would like to personally thank Lele, Zelman's Head Barman - immaculate skills! Nothing was too much trouble for him, even when we went off the menu. With some of my favourite near by places being closed now due to pandemic, such as Roka's Shochu Lounge and Blind Spot, Zelman Soho is currently top of my list. Keep the good job guys! We hope to visit you again in December.

    Another great meal at Zelmans with a newbie I took to taste the best meats in London. The service was incredible as always and despite not having the brisket or mushroom sides which I adored, the authentic and beautifully prepared Japanese Wagyu more than made up for it. Highly recommended to all discerning connoisseurs of fine meat!

    This was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The quality of the meats was outstanding. We had the meat plate with 4 different stakes on it. Accompanied by massive American Short Ribs. Delicious. Sublime. At times it was a bit hard to get served on a busy night but overall the service was good. Will definitely be back.

    Second time here. First came when it just opened a few years ago- amazing. Great meat and great atmosphere. This time the meat was ok but nothing special. Short rib was overcooked, rib eye was fine. Atmosphere became too ‘clubby’. Love goodman and their steaks are always great! Would not go back to this place though.

    Overpriced food ok but not worth the amount charged fillet steak bland no seasoning. Fillet cut into slices not a whole steak felt ripped off. Chips dry and I choked on one it was so dry. Drinks also overpriced.

    Zelman had been recommended to us and so we had high expectations. Our steaks weren't bad and the service was good. We visited on a Sunday lunchtime and it was quite empty and soul-less so really lacking in atmosphere. It was very expensive. We also noted they refused our OpenTable Dining Cheque which was disappointing.

    I got poisoned there by chips with truffles or by mozarella salad which were on the side of rib-eye steak and bottle of wine. The steak was good, no questions, service was good as well, but getting poisoned is the other absolutly unpleasant thing.

    I’d recommend it if the special offer was on. My steak was VERY fatty though and my beetroot carpaccio a little tasteless. Very nice staff who were thorough to advise me in my intolerance-free food and to allow me to upgrade my chips.

    I took two work colleagues for a meal at Zelman Meats and it did not disappoint. The Steak was utterly superb, perfectly cooked with a great range of cuts. This was enough for me to leave a good review, however the service we received from our waiter was phenomenal. He was perfectly attentive and well informed regarding the cuts and wine selections. Thank you Zelman Meats for a fantastic evening!

    Extremely disappointing. The Picanha was recommended medium rare and that’s what we asked for. It came rare and cold. The ambience was like a youth hostel with leather upholstery, the terrible music too loud, the clientele (at 6.30 - maybe not very representative) a mix of tourists and passing trade. The wine list was short and extremely expensive. And none of the food felt like it was cooked with love or respect. One good point - the staff are lovely, fun, attentive and professional. But I can’t recommend it.

    Love the relaxed ambience and the friendly staff! Upon entering, the team informed each other that we were waiting by the door so we got seen to and seated quickly and our waiter was great at fixing our wobbly table as well as explain the different cuts and specials from the menu. As we had a birthday, they were so kind to give us dessert on the house with a candle on top! Not my first visit and definitely won't be my last.

    The food and especially the meat at Zelman is top class. The picanha and ribs paired with the truffle chips and a salad gets you really far, but most other things I have tried are delicious as well. Cost around 60 quid a person for pre-dinner cocktails, wine and food.

    We went for a quick bite before the theatre and have to say it’s one of THE best places we’ve eaten in London. The staff are great we got a very warm welcome and a really nice waitress the service was excellent, the restaurant is really nice a chilled atmosphere, smart decor and really cool artwork on the walls. The food is amazing highly recommend the prawns for starter and the Chateaubriand is the business!! If you’re thinking of going don’t think twice just book it!
