The Two Dogs is a small restaurant with really good cuisine that you would expect to find in bigger cities. The menu is small but caters for all tastes. They have a wine and beer selection that rivals many. We went with friends and had a truly enjoyable evening with well presented cuisine in portions that were not too small... More

We were recommended Two Dogs by the owner of the BnB we stayed in. Let me start by saying that the food was great! We ordered the Pork Belly and Fillet Steak. The pork belly was wonderfully soft and very tasty but unfortunately the appearance of the plate lacked colour as everything was a bit beige. It could also have... More

We have eaten here a few times over the past years. It is the best restaurant in east London. The menue changes often. The starter is good, by times excellent. The main course has got its risks. If you're used to a steak from a bbq or a nice crispy fried fish, you can be easily disappointed by a pan... More

This restaurant has a small menu but the steaks are to die for they are so tender. It is a must visit - the chefs own the restaurant and therefore the food is always immaculately served and full of flavour. The service is good and the ambience is pleasant. The decor is modern and the view from the floor to... More

The service was overwhelmed because the place was full. We finished eating at 23.00. Ripped off on corkage charges but the food was fine but not as good as when it is quieter. I have had many brilliant meals there prior to this. Will definitely be back.

I have been to this restaurant a few times and the food is always REALLY good. The menu is small but with some great choices, food always freshly made and a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Can be quite expensive with three courses and a few drinks but you're paying for quality so it's worth it. Service is excellent.

We've eaten at this restaurant several times but love the new venue - the food, as always, was delicious. The ladies both chose the slow roast duck, which was succulent and juicy, with crisp tasty skin - delicious. Both men chose the fillet steak, which never fails. This is, without doubt, the best restaurant in East London and, according to... More

We have dined there on several occasions and have never been disappointed. All 3 men at our table raved about the steaks. It has a relaxed congenial atmosphere and we found the service to be excellent. Two of our guests had special requests with regards certain ingredients being omitted from their meals and our waiter attended to their requests timeously... More

Enjoyed a friendly service and delicious meal. Our waitress was really lovely. My food was not great but my guests food looked delicious. I just chose things that where all deep fried which I don't normally do. The position is great with lovely views over the lush greens hills of East London. Really enjoyable evening.
