It was pure chance that my family and I stopped in here for a bite to eat. My son had asked for pizza for dinner and we were passing. My word, what luck, this was one of the single best pizza spots we have had...the good fortune to try. Even as the food was put on the table we knew we had made the right choice, this was pizza with a difference. Each bite was pure enjoyment. It is clear that the quality of produce used and the care in putting it all together is of highest importance. I do not live in London but I would consider the trip just for another of these pizzas.More

First visit to Japes with my son before a west end show. Went for the deep crust chicken pizza which was perfect and very filling I could not manage it all. The restaurant is modern and tastefully decorated and the staff were brilliant.

We went to Japes off the cuff after some drinks in soho, we've heard good things and we rarely opt for a deep dish pizza but thought we'd try it. You can actually smell how good the pizza is when you walk past, it definitely...enticed us in. We went for the 'Classic Pizza' and the 'Picante Pizza'. Both were delicious, and the crusts were perfect for dipping in the truffle mayo dip. Although they look small when they arrive, trust me, they fill you up, I struggled to finish it. I would say it's more like a pizza pie than an average pizza. The ambience of the place was lively and had a great vibe. We would definitely recommend this place, but be prepared it'll definitely fill you up!More

My wife and I had the veggie pizza and the vegan one, both London style. Absolutely massive, full of toppings and really filling. The double baked rosemary chips with tomato dip was lovely too. No room for dessert because we were too full. If you...like pizza this is the place to go, well worth the money. Friendly staff, great food and really fair prices. We will be back in Japes next time we visit London.More

We had the Chigago pizza, London Style. Really good and original. I've never tasted pizza like this before and I also liked the crunch of the pizza that was different than usual pizzas.

Loved the vegan pizza. Thick and greasy.. just amazing. Although small it was too much for one person. Definitely would share it next time. Service was good.

Came to try this on a recommendation. We had a reservation thankfully as it was extremely busy. Music was very loud and service was quite slow. We had 2 London style and 1 deep pan veggie pizza. The London style ones were very good although...quite difficult to cut but the deep pan was all crust with a load of sloppy vegetables in the middle. It wasn’t in the least bit nice. Bit disappointing and wouldn’t come again. There are better pizza places close by.More

Didn’t know what to expect as it’s been years since I had a Chicago pizza. Stunningly good. Deep, deep crust but with an amazing cheese and chicken filling. Had to add some pineapple too. Nice atmosphere, quick service, just all round great for a meal...with mates.More

Had lunch and dinner during my stay in London. The place is extremely popular (and not tourists) so thats an endorsement in itself. I didnt make a reservation, but they sat me very quickly. The second dinner time I did make a reservation and was...pretty much seated immediately, in a packed joint. It was reccomended to me to get whatever pizza I decided, but prepared "London Style", which, to me, was like deep dish but with more cheese and less crust. It was awesome, and its enough to fill any appetitte. Translation: they dont skimp. The pizza was so good I ended up going a total of 4 times within a 6-day period. I will certainly visit again and anytime I am in London. Do yourself a solid and check it out, you'll 100% be glad you did.More

I had come here maybe 4 years ago and found the food quite underwhelming. It hasn’t changed, the decor has been updated which looks great and the servers were very attentive and knowledgeable, interacting with them was an enjoyable experience. The music was SO loud,...we could barely hear each other which made our dinner quite awkward. But the food! Just sloppy bland and extortionate prices. I had a vegetarian pizza, Chicago style, as someone who has had deep dish in Chicago before I can tell you it isn’t anything like the original. It’s so expensive too, don’t waste your money here,More

We visited on a lunchtime where the restaurant was busy but not overly so . Ordered a salad as a starter and 2 pizzas as our main meal pizza sauce as a side . Specifically asked for the salad to come out first to find...that it was served with the pizzas . Pizzas were not hot and we asked for these to be re heated . Sauce came out 20 mins after the pizzas 🙄. To the credit of the manager he said new pizzas would be made so we waited another 25 mins for our food . Take 2 food was hot and tasty . The problem with such a disorganised service was that we couldn’t enjoy the food . To the credit of the manager he apologised for the shambolic service . Couldn’t take off the service charge to settle the bill without speaking to waiting staff so we just paid it . The restaurant didn’t deserve this and it shouldn’t require a pay at Table option where this couldn’t be removed easily .More

Went for dinner on a Monday after a day out in London. This was at the Soho branch. We ordered olives and nachos as starters. They seemed to take quite a while although the place was not that busy yet. Then our pizza turned up...and we realised they had forgotten the starters! The pizza was really good though. The starters turned up after we had reminded them and were also good. We also ordered water, along with our drinks, and they also forgot this. What makes the service worse is that you just pay the bill online and I had to pay a service of £11. It was too much hassle to ask them to take it off. In short the food is great, the place is great but the service was very poor. If not then I could give it a five out of five.More

We all ordered the London style pizza and they were all lovely. We had vegan, veggie and mozzarella. All huge, lots of topping and super tasty. We had a double portion of rosemary chips and they were yummy too. We shared one jaffa cake ice...cream between 3 of us for dessert because we were so full, but it was really tasty. The staff were helpful, the decor is really good and the prices are really fair. If you like pizza then Japes is a great choice and we will be back next time we are in London.More

I’m sure you can ask if you a specific topping added on the dish. Not sure if you can customise a while pizza or pot pie from scratch though.
