“Fantastic store - but avoid the restaurant/cafe on the top floor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Loved the store - everything and anything you could possibly want is here. But were mightily disappointed in the restaurant/cafe on the top floor. It was a most depressing place, with the furniture and decoration feeling very tired and unloved. The food was poor - our choice which looked appetising in the photo at the bar was basically a runny sauce on a small side plate together with a warmed roll and the service was non-existent - we had to wait some time to attract the attention of the server and no-one was manning the till when we got there. Would not return - would even rather eat in McDonalds!!! Could learn a thing or two from the cafe in the National Gallery - different experience althogether.

“Spectacular Shopping Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Selfridges is a spectacular shopping place which offers a wide range of products, all premium quality. From designers' clothes & shoes to branded TVs & speakers to premium perfumes and quality stationary & books. Really worth the visit if you're in London!

“Selfridges Food Garden Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I often visit here if I'm in oxford street for shopping and I get hungry at lunch time simply because there is a halal food option available here. BUT, as of late I've noticed the quality of this restaurant is not good. They also do not use disposable cuttlery and the steel cuttlery available is messy at times. I got a mutton biyani from the masala zone here and the meat in it was hard like rocks and not eddible by any standards. It was dark and burnt. But because the place is so crowded and there is no managerial overlook or proper system, you dont know what to do! There are also some waiters here in this restaurant who have a problem called 'staring'. For whatever reason they go around giving you some weird looks which is something that makes one quite uncomfortable in this place as well. They need to train there staff more and need to step up the hygeiene and quality of food provided in there restaurant.

“Expensive, but Very Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

A trip to Oxford Street isn't complete without at least window shopping at Selfridges. Of course, shopping here really adds up so it's probably wise to walk with a credit card or two depending upon what you're looking for. All major brands one can think of are available. I love the men's departments and the items they carry. They also have an excellent selection of books. When in London, pay them a visit, you won't be disappointed you did.

“The most important brands in one place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

The most important brands that you can look for in a normal life are here. Comparing to Harrods which is for really wealthy people, Selfridges have brands from normal up to luxury, so you have the chance to finde almost whatever you want in clothing, electronics and even food! TAX FREE department is very helpful for international travellers. (non E.U.)
