Fantastic food, great service, great atmosphere. Bit too loud so conversation was tricky, and as everyone is shouting (because it's so loud!). But the quality of the food was fantastic.

I used to love this place for a quiet intimate meal with friends. Now it is a loud and manic shouty grab before table is booked. Forget Saturday night apres Paris. Go somewhere else

Average food on a busy Friday night in Kings X. One of our party was late arriving due to working on call at hospital. She felt rushed due to pressure of being told several times “we need the table back by x time”. An order of fries was also forgotten. Coal office nearby is better.

Always enjoy the food at Caravan but the noise level on this visit was just unbelievable. I am afraid it affected my enjoyment of the meal. Just TOO NOISY

Very interesting and varied food, most of which worked. Pleasant and efficient staff particularly as it always seems to be very busy. Lighting is so poor it is virtually impossible to read the menu or the bill.

Great place but bad experience on this occasion. Drink orders were taken but then informed they weren't available (after a slightly longer than expected wait). Our second choice drinks were then knocked over by the waitress, right into my colleague's lap, staining her top with turmeric. Apology wasn't good enough and only the drink was struck from the bill. I have been here before and will return as the food is great and I love the atmosphere, just a series of unfortunate events on this occasion and a service that was unusually below par.

Really nice location in Kings Cross, would definitely recommend for a work lunch time treat, or a meal with friends. Very loud, so don't go for a meeting. Food was nice, i had the Salmon and wholegrain rice salad, but i thought that £15 was quite pricey.... Wouldn't go regularly as too expensive.

Wij hebben hier in 2017 gegeten en toen was het erg goed.
Wij werden dan ook onaangenaam verrast dat dit restaurant zo in niveau is afgegleden.
Het voorgerecht (kroket van garnalen) van mijn partner was koud van binnen.
De gekonfijte eendebout was van een eend uit Ethiopië, er zat geen vlees aan.
Mijn zeebaars was wel goed, en werd gepresenteerd als een soort curry.
Onder de zeebaars bevond zich echter een hoop van geraspte wortel drijvend in een soort curry flavourd soep.
Het geheel was weinig inspirerend, en volgens mij niet allemaal vers. Zoals de kroketten die duidelijk uit de vriezer kwamen.
Last but not least, het werd in een dusdanig tempo geserveerd waar menig fast-food restaurant jaloers op zou zijn.
We stonden na drie kwartier weer buiten, een illusie armer.

We booked a table at 19:45, ordered food - service was slow so our food didn’t come until 20:45, not a major issue for us as we were chatting but then at 21:15 we asked for another bottle of wine to have with the remainder of our mains (we were still eating our main course) and dessert. 5 mins after bringing the bottle of wine the waitress informed us that they wanted the table back at 21:30 so we couldn’t have dessert. They didn’t tell us either at the start nor when we ordered more wine that you only have the table for 90 mins even if you book after 19:30. It was very disappointing as I used to really like this restaurant - probably a victim of it own success, now they are popular no need to have any customer service.

Excellent, different food in a nice industrial ambience. Not sure why the greeting staff are so miserable but at least the waiting staff are really lovely. Not a place you'd call very fast service, but the food is so special it's OK really. Just don't try and be in a hurry!

The location is nice and the environment quite charming but the food was very bad. We got the rice and salmon bowl. Nothing much. Just plain boiled rice and plain salmon stuck in a cold plate. And this was 14 pounds excluding the service
I think it’s now becoming trendy to serve basic food and call it cool and healthy making zero effort on making it an enjoyable meal. Next time we go for Italian pizza.

Food was fairly average, some items were unbalanced and tasted unnecessarily spicy.
We were very squashed on a long table and the table was very wide so it was hard to talk as the restaurant was also very loud. Felt a little like we were being rushed to leave to get more customers in. Lovely interior but not the most relaxing lunch ever.

Great location, especially if you can sit outside on a sunny day, away from traffic and overlooking the fountains on the square. Well designed industrial interior as well. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu had a range of options and our party choose many small plates and bowls to sample. Overall I felt there was too much going on on some of the plates and I thought many were expensive considering the key ingredients. Good place to eat for meat eaters and non nesters alike.

I think we were unlucky - they gave our table away even though we were there within 15mins and had responded to their text message immediately.

They found a table for us but it was at the back in the corner, not quite the same ambience as the rest of the room.

Food has great variety but just wasn't that tasty on the whole. I'd recommend you try it though, but go in with neutral expectations.

Fantastic food with innovative choices and serving sizes. The staff were lovely and helped us navigate the menu. Considering it's such a vast space, and it was a very busy Friday lunchtime, we found that the noise levels were fine and we could maintain a conversation (four of us) despite being on a shared table. We were also surprised what good value it was for the money. Definitely going back!
