You will meet one of most talented and friendly bartender Ivan (or Evan). I had a great conversation and got a chance to learn about the cockatiels he made for me. I just had a chicken cherar and it was good too. The size of...the portion was bigger than I expected. I loved the background music. I’d love to go there again.More

Absolutely awful place, cancelled our dinner reservation 1.5 hours before the given time, on a Friday night when we had already made our way into London as we live outside. No answer on the phone or to emails. Totally ruined a birthday celebration as we...then had to struggle to find somewhere else for dinner. Very disappointed as they expect a deposit when you cancel but no compensation or customer service when they cancel on you.More

This restaurant is at the end of its life! Only 20 people for dinner. It's understandable: the food is just awful. We were 4 to be almost sick. The only taste of the dishes: fat. On the other hand, the prices are exorbitant. Don't go...there anymore, it's awfulMore

The atmosphere is ok. It’s cozy, the food is good however the truffle did neither smell anything and tasted nothing that was very weird since you are paying for that. Not to many people even though a Friday night. It’s expensive.

Decadence at its height. The highlight was the groove the dj tried to create and the friendliness of staff. But in general, everyone seemed too stressed, customers trying to outdo each other and staff stretched. I cannot fault them the staff was polite, but there...was an undercurrent that left me uncomfortable. I would not go back.More

location super as always, good asian food, but service wasn't up to the standard. Many delay for the drinks and error in the order. For that price we can't accept it. Anyway, food was delicious.

As an expensive restaurant in Knightsbridge I had high hopes that this restaurant would be something special both in terms of food, as well as service and overall ambience. As far as ambience was concerned the restaurant was so dark we had to use the...torches on our phone to see the menu, had I known this in advance I would of brought my camping torch but then again I wouldn’t thought I’d be needing camping gear in the middle of Knightsbridge. On the service, the staff seemed very busy and not very attentive I had to gaze like a lost parrot to try and get their attention to get a drink. I asked the waiter repeatedly whether food had diary as I have an allergy to which the response was “yes?” I was also asked whether coconut milk was diary… As far as the food is concerned my local Chinese takeaway is leaps and bounds ahead of the food here. They didn’t cater well for my diary allergy, a lot of the food had diary. Of what I could have was pomegranate salad which tasted like rabbit food. Chicken with naan bread, yes you read that correctly, which was dryer than the Gobi Desert. Although the sashimi and Wagu beef was nice this didn’t make up for the rest of the tasteless offerings. Overall if you love throwing money away as a pastime this will be perfect for you. Additionally if you are sensitive to light and like dark spaces this will also work like a charm as you won’t be able to see your menu or the person you came with.More

Nice atmosphere to grab a drink. As for dining, the music was a bit too loud. Food was fresh, high quality, but disappointingly quite ordinary in terms of taste and flavour combinations. Cocktails were delicious though.

We had an amazing time last Saturday at my friends daughter’s Batmitzvah. The food was outstanding and the staff so helpful! The event went smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. Amazing venue and very attentive staff ! Perfect for this type of event.

Visited Buddha Bar with a group of friends for Halloween weekend. The atmosphere was amazing - their Halloween decoration was on point, including the food which arrived on a large carved pumpkin. The sushi platter and the red snapper were delightful but my favourite dish...was the truffle rice. The prices are on par with other similar restaurants, so definitely not overpriced. It’s also child friendly as there were many families with children dining there in the same night. Our servers were brilliant and super friendly! All in all - fantastic experience.More

The food was below average and very overpriced. The place was nice but nowhere near as nice as the pictures advertised of it online. The table for 2 people was also really quite small; Barely fit our plates and the restaurant was dark. I’d reccomend...2/5.More

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
