We've been here many times for a quick early evening meal before the theatre or a show. Highly recommend the express menu, small portions, great value and very tasty food.

My husband and I went to the Barbican Kitchen to celebrate 48 years of marriage. I mentioned when I booked that it was our anniversary and they greeted us with congratulations as soon as we walked in. We had a window seat and after a wonderful "Chateau Briand" and a smooth bottle of rose wine. although we were full and... More

We booked for a table for four and were shown to our table as soon as we arrived. The service seemed a little hurried when we ordered drinks and were promptly asked if we were ready to order. Hardly had time to look at the menu, four people will always take time to decide. The choice wasn't anything different, did... More

The food was nice - not that tasty, but reasonably presented, but portions were definitely on the small side. the goats cheese tart was delicious but tiny! The lunch offer seemed good value but you realise why when you see the portions :) Service was good, in fact a little too attentive, we were hoping for a leisurely lunch but... More

It has been some time since we visited here so we were a little apprehensive but no need to be concerned we had a great experience. We booked for early dinner on a Friday evening and were shown to our table as soon as we arrived-service was unhurried and all the better for that-I hate it when a restaurant virtually... More

Visited for a family meal (five of us) - all dishes were very good. Not a cheap option but excellent food for the price. Comfortable, good service.

I have been here for a special dinner with my girlfriend. The food was pretty good, even if the restaurant is pretty expensive. The waiter could have been more patient (always pressing us), but in brief a good experience.

We haven't been to the Barbican kitchen for a couple of years - why oh why!!! It was fantastic!! We had an early booking as we had a 6 year old with us, 6.30, plus 4 adults! Food was superb - there is a children's menu but they also offered to make mini portions of the adult menu for her!... More

I have been a regular diner at BK but this week was dismayed. The meal was extremely sub standard, the risotto tasted like it had been around for days and look awful. The waitress did her job but little else which for BK is unusual as the staff as normally v attentive. My friend emailed a concerned customer note to... More
