Beautiful restaurant, amazing service and the food is just as good. I had the best time for my bf’s birthday. I’m usually a fussy eater but the flavours were phenomenal. Iv been a few time so I would defiantly recommend!

Food was delicious and I would pay more for the food so value for money was decent

The service was outstanding from the waiters, faultless!

The drinks were lovely but definitely not value for money on drinks

Overall 7/10

I came here to celebrate our very recent engagement we got sat by two large groups and got left to the waist side with service. Didn’t offer anymore drinks etc. The guests beside us were breaking glazed or taking pictures on the staircase the servers looked frustrated and the manager looked powerless. We gave him feedback after we paid but he came back suggesting shots for us. We didn’t want anything just wanted to give feedback. Dubai was better.

1.Nobody asked if the food was okey. Which it wasn’t.
2. The food came before our drinks .
3. We had to ask for sauce, drinks and food that we ordered,
4. The price for the service and food was not worth it.

Food is mediocre at best. We were ignored for the first 20 mins until we went and complained and then we were told our table tends to be ignored. Wonderful. But then they are clear in telling you at the time of booking you need to clear out in 90mins. We got some sorry edamame to make up for that. The waitress tried to make up for it at first by offering faster service but then at one point I said you have made up for the initial disaster and then she vanished again. It was our first night in London place was recommended by a local friend for a “good time” that’s all that might be : nicely dressed people and a party vibe but food was quite sub par and service even more so.

I have contacted Buddha bar about beyond poor experience and received no acknowledgement. A waiter had got all boiling candle wax on me and told me it’ll wash off, not only was I burnt and bruised but it had ruined my outfit and shoes. Received our first round of drinks after we’d finished our starters, our plates from our main course sat in front of us for an hour and our dessert never showed up- yes we did have to constantly nag the staff. I’ve never felt the need to write a review before but this venue was horrific.

We found the restaurant very dated - quite 1990s in decor and style. The food was okay but not great and certainly not for the price. Service was good and the staff helpful and friendly. I guess you are paying for being in Knightsbridge - but there are much better options for a similar price locally. Zuma prices but with none of the atmosphere or style.

Awful! Poor service, poor food. No atmosphere and people check their hygiene rating! It got a 2! Worse than the chicken shops you would find on the high street. Overpriced rubbish. Stick to Nobu.

Service wasn’t up to what you would expect in a place like that . The food came before a single drink had arrived , my daughter wanted a cocktail called Twinkle but they said they weren’t able to make it .
Food was ok , my dish of prawns with monkfish was missing the monkfish , only 2 small cubes and 1 piece of butternut squash almost raw .... not great !
£80 for a shisha 😳
Nice decor but that’s it really , dissapointed .

Food was fantastic. Music was a little too loud for dining and we had to shout across the table but music selection was good. Unfortunately the waiting time for food kept us there much longer than we’d liked. It was clear that some orders were simply forgotten and prepared when waiter was reminded by us. Staff was very friendly.
