Great food and drinks list, really good music and atmosphere. However portions are a bit on the small side and we were a bit disappointed to go at 8pm on a Friday night for some of the main course dishes to have run out!
By far one of the best restaurants we have been to in the last couple of months. Outstanding food, great drinks and fabulous service (...great playlist!). This place is absolutely worth a visit. Certainly coming back!
first visit and very interesting menu
food was great as was the 80s music and atmosphere but the service was lacking.....quite often the boys in our group of 7 - they were 6 of the 7 were sat with empty beer classes and we had to chase for drinks.
Great food with an Indian twist! I had the dry goat thali and really enjoyed it. Lovely vibe to the place; friendly service. Will definitely come back!
Vibrant restaurant providing an exceptional indian dining experience with a fabulous gin menu too!
Really great food, thali plates very good value for money; service was impeccable
A really interesting and creative menu with a mix of Asian and Scottish influences, try the Korean Haggis, it was great. We were in a large group but the setting still feels really intimate. I would come back again with just one or two people and sit at the kitchen counter. Overall a good experience, but not cheap!
This was one of the worst dining experiences we’ve ever had. Everything was fine and we ordered after our waiter had very completely explained the menu and we had our drinks. However it started to go downhill from there. 30 mins later and the starters haven’t arrived the waiter comes back to the table to tell us that they don’t have 3 of the things we had ordered despite it being just after 8pm. So 3 of the 7 had to change their order. 30 minutes later we finally get our starters which were lovely but very disappointed by it being over an hour since we ordered them. It then took over an hour again to receive our mains, we were given a couple of bottles of wine to apologise which was a nice touch but considering the markup on wine it’s no real detriment to the restaurant. Mains arrive and there we’re mixed reviews. The meat was fantastic, tender and perfectly cooked however the chips were uncooked and curry sauce was very watery which again was surprising as it had taken an hour to get them out. One of our group asked for an extra paratha to finish everything up which I was very surprised to see on the bill at the end. We ordered desserts which too less time to come than the mains but still was a long time but were delicious when they did arrive and then we asked for the bill. There was no discount applied despite the debacles with the food ordering and it being extremely late to the table and service was applied automatically. I can see that this restaurant can and does excel and have been to Temper Soho and enjoyed it very much but sadly this wasn’t one of those days and it was very poor.
Friendly, attentive service & really interesting food. Loved sitting at the counter watching the chefs at work. The goat was outstanding, will return to try the smoked lamb for sure
Good service and food and cocktails. Similar to the original soho but with more of an asian and east asian flavour. Highlights were the tomato & charred aubergine curry and tandoor spiced red curry chicken is worth the wait.
Outstanding service, underpinning an excellent evening.
I'm a big fan of temper; the Broadwick St outlet provides something akin to a religious experience for meat-eaters. The new city venue is slick but feels a bit cavernous and vacant, and ultimately ersatz to its sibling. Another favourite, Pitt Cue Co, in their migration to the city seems to be a directly comparable experience in that the ebullience and vibrancy of a more intimate venue is lost somewhat. The menu is good - if a little fussy - and the flavours are great (although the lamb kebab was a bit bland), but it all comes together to feel like an experience less than the sum of its parts.
Scotch bonnet lamb had no heat. Even the waitress (who was excellent) was surprised that it had no kick to it.
The goat was very good though.
A lovely spot. We were the first ones in there so wasn't as vibrant as i'd have expected but you can tell the potential is there and am sure its more buzzy in the evenings. The fire pit in the middle of the restaurant is a great touch and seeing enormous cuts of meat maybe not one for the squeamish vegetarian... Food is lovely, the Squid Pakora was very nice and the thalis provide all the accompaniments without having to worry about sides. The dry goat is a hundred times better than it sounds and the "peshwari dust" would go well on a flip flop. Service was good and attentive. I'll be back for sure.
Hard to find if you’re an out of Towner. Lamb skewer, beef and bbq ribs were all amazing.
Very happy. Staff were great & made the evening a pleasure. Friendly atmosphere & delicious food.
Service was pleasant but incredibly, outrageously slow. The food was ok, but the hour long wait put us off. We had to order a second bottle of wine before the first course actually arrived.
This was my third visit so I do like this restaurant but this visit was a bit disappointing. The Octopus starter was fantastic as always.. tender, spicy and delicious. The squid likewise was a generous portion and delicious. The fish mains were more disappointing. The fish green curry turned out to be a whole mackerel on the bone and the Cullen skink just did not work. I still recommend a visit but stick to the meats!
What a great dinner with my son. The owner came up to say hello and even gave him their latest cool book. Can definitely recommend for adults and children
Fantastic service, really helpful waiter. Great 80s music and ambience. Would definitely recommend but bare in mind the meat cuts sell out quickly as it is butchered on site. Good selection of wines, caters for all palettes and price ranges.
Incredible food, and amazing service, 10/10 would gorge on meat again.
They have limited supplies of some of the cuts of meat (it is butchered on site) - something to bare in mind if you’re planning on eating late and want something specific, but there are plenty of tasty options!
Warm welcome to great service. Nothing was rushed. Sat at the bar/kitchen. So we got to see all the interesting foods being created. A must if you are in the area.
Great, quick lunch. Big portion of crispy squid and Szechuan chicken from the set menu. Good value at £24. Recommended.
Excellent in every single way, would highly recommend giving the place a visit
Food was outstanding easily one of the best steaks I've had in a long time, and the pulled smoked goat!?! Only one word... EPIC
Will definitely be back
Fantastic food and fantastic restaurant. Really fun and great food and drink
The most delicious desert ever - bananaramadrama. All the food was lovely and tasty and a huge portion of chicken.
Thank you so much for being brilliant hosts. I'll definitely be back soon!
Love the mix of Scottish & Asian cuisines in this industrial-style restaurant - first appearance can be deceptive
Great service and the food is very interesting
Overpriced and average food. Really good cocktails. Staff were friendly and polite but we waited forever to be asked our orders. Would not go back.
Interesting takes on a few well known dishes. Lively restaurant with good service. Felt like we were paying for the venue though. Would be so good if 20% cheaper.
Great evening with work colleagues, the fire to smoke the meat leaves a very pleasant smell in the dining room, food and wine were great. Maybe small caveat, think twice before bringing a vegetarian friend, mainly meat.
Will definitely be back.
Excellent food, friendly staff and an amazing playlist!! Go!!!
The food would be alright if served with rice. Right now it's a mish mash. Too many things on a plate. Service is "corporate".
Great beer and wine list. Go for a drink and maybe snacks but avoid the food.
Booked in for my wifes birthday, and we had a fantastic evening. The food was amazing, drinks list was superb, and the staff could not possibly have been better! They even came over and sang happy birthday to my wife and gave her a dessert. Thye steak was perfect, the Thali plates so filling and delicious. I cannot thank all of the staff at Temper enough for making the evening absolutely perfect for us. Keep up the great work!
The restaurant was so quiet post Christmas, that it was almost like private dining! But the service (attentive and informed, not intrusive) and quality of the food more than compensated for any lack of atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend.
Visited for an xmas date and the whole experience was wodnerful. The service was great, the food even better. Really had a fantastic time and can't wait to come back
Very average take on modern indian cuisine.
Excellent fun service
A lovely evening - great food and service. Thank you
