Was in a party of 8 that stumbled across this restaurant last night around 9pm. Whilst busy, they found us a table downstairs. Service was ok and the food was fabulous! So much chicken!!! Would definitely come back!

Never tasted ribs this good! Pulled pork was also great, as we're the brisket burnt ends. Loved the Goose Island IPA, loved the fries and sides. Love this place!

Was absolutely knackered so fancied grabbing something decent to eat back in my hotel room. Saw Bodean's did take out if you phoned them, so called, ordered a chicken, BBQ ribs and pulled pork combo and it was waiting for me when I walked in the restaurant door 15 mins later. Ribs were really good, great sauce and well cooked,... More

Lovely meal enjoyed by my son and I at Sunday lunchtime en route to Wembley. Decided against starters and desserts (wise choice as the mains were huge!) and we thoroughly enjoyed the Bodean's shared platter. Good service on entry and throughout the meal too. Plenty of meat - ribs, chicken wings, pulled pork and burnt ends to go with a... More

Excellent chicken wings (wash your hand thoroughly if choosing "diablo" strength = i have nearly blinded myself before!) Mains - you can't not have the pulled pork. burnt ends are also delicious, fall apart beef. the ribs are good, i'd recommend the full ribs as opposed to babyback - more meat. good plan if there are two of you is...

Great food. A nice way of knowing when your tables ready via text. A good range of beers. The meats are cooked to perfection. No complaints. Be aware that it does get very busy.

Had a quick bite to eat here after a work meeting and before the train. Not quite the experience I was hoping for, felt and looked dirty especially the shared female/male toilets. All the doors leading through the Restaurant were sticky and the overall appearance of everything else was aged unclean and dark. Food was OK, smaller quanties than expected.... More

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
