I had a lesson in food.
Purées in toothpaste bottles, salmon smoked at your table, dessert with tapioca.all sensational.
A note has to made about the service which was excellent, I normally focus on the food when I dine out but only here have I noticed the top notch service.

Taster and wine menu.

I so wanted to be wow by this restuarant. Great Trip Advisor reviews, though if you look hard enough there were a few that will sound a bit like mine.

With regard to the food there was lots going on - but me and my partner came away feel let down. Nothing was bad, but then nothing really wowed, there was innovation but im not sure that it added anything. A couple of days later and I cannot really remember what I had, everything sort of arrived, was eaten but I cannot say that it had much impact on me. Nothing wrong with the cooking but something not right with the flavours, all seemed to blend into one.

Wine matching - we got the wine matching menu and have had this in other restuarants where there was a bit of theatre and discription about the wine and why it went with the food. Here the wine arrived, we were told what it was and that was about it. Also because of the waiters accents it was actually really difficult to understand what was being discribed.

Service - OK but felt a little rushed.

Value - as a result of the above it felt expensive.

While nothing to complain about, just felt a bit of a let down, especially if you compare it to other restuarants of a similar cost (Devonshire Arms in North Yorkshire for instance). A shame as others on Trip Advisors seem to have had a very different experience from me.

Came here few times over the last few years, today was the best. Amazing food, fireworks of flavours. Perfect service (not too slow not too invasive). Coming back soon

Dined at Texture for an anniversary. The service was excellent, the food was out of this world. Small, perfectly formed portions, with incredibly varied flavours. I'm pretty sure there was seven or eight courses so you will not be hungry in the end. One of the best restaurants in the country.

A bit pricey yes, but totally worth it.

When you use Trip Advisor to get help it is always reassuring when you get what you hoped for. I was looking for a lunch venue in this area of London and I was drawn to Texture because of the other positive reviews. My lunch experience was very good, the service was great, they knew when to be around and when not to be – professionals. The food was not brilliant but it was very good also. Other comments about pricing are a bit surprising as you get what you pay for, if you wanted cheaper drinks there is a pub around the corner and if you don’t like the home made crisps then maybe you should take some Walkers with you – for me, the prices were fair and reasonable for the food, experience and location. I was surprised by such a foreign contingent of staff, they were all very good but a few British professionals kicking around the place wouldn’t go amiss as it balances the feel for the locals. If you are thinking of trying this restaurant go for it – I will be going again as soon as possible.
