Good Food

It was my first visit to this restaurant and I was trying some new cuisine. The experience was good. The food was delicious and the ambience is good.

there were on the menu, but none in stock. Amazing variety of pasties, but I would stick with traditional next time. English style baked beans were good, as were the thick cut French fries. My favourite was the Scotch Egg appetizer, perfectly cooked and presented.

6:30 pm a Thursday night and at first I thought it was closed down - but don't be put off by the exterior, I think it may be by design in order to keep the crowds down. Interior is warm and inviting, as was the staff. Mostly younger couples, definitely a cool vibe with awesome music playing, but as an... More

My husband & I have dined at & ordered carry-out from Cornish Pasty several times (this location, which is the original Cornish Pasty location, as well as the Mesa location) over the past 2 years (when we first heard about this awesome local gem of a restaurant). This location in Tempe is our favorite location of the two we've dined... More

We saw this restaurant on the morning news, being British and living in Canada, in Mesa for the winter we could hardly wait to try this place out. It certainly did not disappoint. My husband ordered the Oggie and I ordered Cottage pie. Wow, they were amazing! Hot and so tasty. The pastry is to die for! Will definitely return.... More

The atmosphere is a bit different from what I expected, I simply trusted the high Yelp reviews and opted for the food. It is a dimly lit sort of place and most of the staff has sleeves of ink and likely piercings in places other than the earlobes. The food is very hearty and I'll definitely go back. They have...

For me when I (being British) eat at an English restaurant in the USA I look for authenticity and great flavor. This restaurant had both and more. The menu has a lot of choice so I will be back to try a different pasty, for sure! I went for the Turkey, sweet potato, stuffing pasty (the pilgrim) and it was... More

Pasty was pretty good, had the traditional Oggie. Never designed to eat with a knife and fork, pasty's always taste better when you just pick them up and eat. Quite good if a bit under seasoned for me, but I prefer a lot of pepper. Mushy peas were so so and really should be eaten with fish and chips, but... More

We've been here twice and have always been satisfied with the food. The pasties are always made to order and there's more than 25 fillings to choose from. I've had the Reuben and the Italian and both have been great, with enough filling to make you feel satisfied. My partner has had the Carne Adovada and the Greek Chicken and... More

We went for dinner here without knowing what to expect. The food was amazing. A unique experience having your meal enveloped into a delicious pastry shell. My friend ordered the pilgrim (thanksgiving meal basically) and was not disappointed ... I ordered the shepherds pie and was thoroughly impressed. A side order of garlic fries completed the meal. The waiter was... More
