Disappointed :(

Tried to get in with a few friends all in late 40s/early 50s, two of whom were not allowed in because they didn't have identification with them... That put us right off but having been so excited to go, the rest of us paid the ridiculous entry fee to get in and went and had a look. We stayed no... read more

We prebooked the table, received confirmation in writing, on the night of our event they stopped us at the door and told us that our pre-booking was a misunderstanding! The worst place in London! Very dodgy, arrogant management and unprofessional staff!

We were shocked by the way management and waiters treat paying customers in this place. We went with a group of friends and wanted to report two incidents involving other customers and members of the staff. Our complaints were largely ignored, and when a manager intervened to offer a "solution" in the end of the night, she was visibly bothered... More

I was worried after reading all these reviews! Glad i stuck with my gut and went. I celebrated my 28th birthday party with 6 of my girlfriends. We didn't have a table, because the tab doesn't allow cocktails - just bottles of alcohol. Club goers were a bit young. Everyone gets ID'd so take your ID! Once you're in, the... More

With so many good clubs in that area, you need to avoid this like the plague. To be fair, door staff aren't too bad (or at least most obliging to let a mixed group of 10 paying for a table in) but after that, totally downhill. The DJ needs the sack, the bar staff are seriously rude, clumsy and just... More

Brilliant night out. Vibrant evening with great music and drinks. Cocktails are to die for- the staff really know their stuff. Credit to staff Kev & CK for the cocktails and banter.

Well what can I say about Mahiki, nothing good! Having paid £10 entrance fee each plus £150 on drinks myself and my two friends were then made to leave blatantly because a member of staff took a disliking to us, and I am afraid to say it but we do believe it was because one of my friends is black!...

We were really looking forward to an evening of karaoke & dancing here for a hen do, but were sadly let down by badly managed staff. The karaoke machine in our pre-booked (min £500 spend) room wasn't working, but instead of calling ahead in the afternoon to let us know, they told us on arrival that it was being fixed.... More

So Mahiki was booked as part of my sister's hen do. First rule no hen do attire, ok we can cope with that. We arrived at 8pm and we're taken to our karaoke room,which was quirky done out like a bedroom and you sing in the bathroom area in the shower. Looked fab but was uncomfortable as the heating appeared... More

Came here on a Saturday night for a friends birthday. She had been promised a table and drinks by a promoter, which was great. Drinks at the bar were no less than £10 so anyone on a budget should definitely avoid. We sat at the table and were having a great time, but then some of the staff came over,... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
