“Wonderful - one of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

A food experience that was truly memorable served by genuinely enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. Shame it will only last 2 years but make sure you go. The location is a little off the beaten track but that adds to it in my mind. Excellent value as well. Well done guys; think I will make the trip to the Lakes....!

“Attractive Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is excellent restaurant the food and service are first class. i enjoy every minute at Rogan's..! I think it is probably the one place in London. It is a must visit. The menu is quite different and I think the Chefs put in so much efforts.

“Amazing good, perfect service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Although Roganic has now closed I'm sure Simon Rogan will be returning to London soon as this restaurant was such a success. You can have taster menus at many of London's Michelin starred restaurants but they will almost certainly not be as original and unique as Roganic's.

Dishes that sound boring or just plain weird are anything but. Flavours are all balanced perfectly, every dish has been thought out with painstaking detail, textures, flavours, colours, everything is there with every course.

It is not cheap but the amount of work that must go into developing each dish, not to mention the cooking involved, must be huge.

I have only mentioned the food but on both occasions I have been the service has been impeccable. Friendly and engaging but never intrusive which is the perfect combination.

I am sure Simon Rogan will return to London but if you cannot wait then make a trip to the Lake District and visit L'Enclume. The menu is very similar although the restaurant has a more industrial feel to it as it is so big and there are so many staff rushing around. That is what was so nice about Roganic, there were no more than 10 tables which gave it a really intimate feel.

I have also heard that Simon Rogan has opened a new restaurant in Manchester which might be a bit more accessible for people. I have not been but from what I have experienced of his food so far it would definitely be worth a visit.

“Lived up to its billing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Can only really second what others have written below. A real gem of a place and I can't wait to visit L'Enclume as a result. The service was impeccable and the food... just lost for words. Excellent value given the world class standards too. Rogan is clearly a genius and one of Britain's finest

“Something is missing from London right now - it's Roganic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

As the restaurant has now closed I am wondering why I am writing this review as it is of no help to anyone else now! But this place was a little gem and I genuinely hope Simon Rogan opens a new restaurant somewhere in London very soon.

Everything about this place was outstanding, the service, the food and the atmosphere were all faultless. For vegetarians this place was a mecca - Roganic brought every vegetable back to life and even meat lovers like myself were wondering just how they could be made to taste so good.

Something is missing in London right now and I think that something could be Simon Rogan!
