At leftbank there are stunning views of the river Thames from wherever you're dining. Linger over gorgeous seasonal food all freshly cooked and served buffet-style so you can help yourself to a little bit of this, a lot of that...you can tuck into three, four or five courses! The food style is English with gorgeous international influences and it's all prepared freshly for you by people who love food. The wood-fired oven, rotisserie and hobs are always in action - a theatre of cooking right before your eyes.

This place was an awesome surprise, especially if you like food! An all you can eat buffet, not cheap rubbish like some places, this is top quality. First a salad bar with the broadest and tastiest salads you can imagine. The hot bar is incredible - pulled lamb, beautifully cooked, and all the trimmings. Dessert? The choice is amazing including... More

The restaurant has the best breakfast buffet you could ever wish for, so much choice, all top quality and very fresh and plentiful, tasty eggs, waffles kippers made to order. Again the evening buffet is opulent yet family friendly, even a section for the kids to make their own pizza. Top notch service.

This is our favourite place - great for celebrations because if you have a big gathering everyone can have just whatever they want and there is a fantastic choice. The staff are pleasant and helpful. It is quite expensive but worth the money unless you are a someone with a very small appetite. Atmosphere is good - very laid back... More

Nice Ambience, good service, exceptional good value and choice of foods. Chef Roy was very attentive and cooked my seafood fresh from scratch and was delicious. The the food was of high standard. One negative was the food could have been hotter.

This is my second trip for dinner at the Leftbank. I was so impressed with my first visit a few months ago I thought that I had to come back with my wife.
