Really interesting range of taste sensations bursting with flavours.

A delightful lunch trying the tasting menu, which offers seven courses (plus cheese at a supplement). The menu itself was interesting, whilst listing the ingredients, it didn't really give away too much. Starting with peas & mint, we knew we were going to be treated to a great range of fresh... read more

A wonderful experience demonstrating truly deep quality in the cooking, attentive service and modern styling without forgetting what they're delivering. It's easy to assume that the industrial style will leave something short in the kitchen but the freshness, vibrancy and innovation of the cuisine were remarkable and a single Michelin star is the minimum this restaurant deserves. We had to... More

We visited for my birthday treat after hearing about this cutting edge and much mooted culinary hotspot. We opted for the lunch taster menu to sample all the best dishes Dabbous has to offer. It set off with a nice but archaic pea dish followed by a bowl of spring onions. It was then accompanied by tomato on toast(I mean... More

Read some one star reviews beforehand which made me apprehensive, but was totally blown away. Food was exceptional, and I left absolutely stuffed Wine was really terrific and some very affordable options. But the service was beyond compare. Absolutely wonderful. They overheard my wife and I discussing it was her birthday and unprompted added a candle to her dessert. Small... More

Oh yes it can. I would leave the review there, but I've got to add 86 more characters. 14 now. It was the beginning of a heatwave and there was a heady excitement in the air all across the city. You could feel it; you could breathe it. This was apt, for it matched the anticipation my significant other and... More

From start to finish; interesting taste sensations. Finely crafted dishes; small but plenty in number. Perfect service; helpful but not in your face. Lovely intimate setting for a romantic meal.

The decor is grim, the chairs not very comfortable and the tables are placed too close together. The loos are unisex and have the feel of being in a dungeon. Lighting in them is too dim to be able to see if one has food stuck in one's teeth. We had the tasting menu. The pea and mint was sublime... More

My husband & I went for lunch on a Friday to celebrate your 5 year wedding anniversary. We were both surprised by the relaxed environment (decor) & also that the restauraant did not cater to a hug amount of covers which I though made the place seem quite intimate. The tasting menu was delicious although I didn't like the dessert... More

One of the best tasting menus in London! Definitely worth a visit! Start with a cocktail in the bar downstairs and then proceed to the restaurant and be ready for your great evening! Wine match strongly recommended!

Absolutely superb food. There is clearly cooking technique of the highest level, but that does not mean self-indulgent 'over thought' plates of food. Every dish was beautifully presented, supremely executed, but most importantly tasted delicious. Service was warm and efficient - as you'd want. The décor and look of the place is stripped back industrial minimalism, which I personally found... More
