Food and drinks were excellent :) would happily go back there for another meal. Only quibble was about the level of noise. It felt a bit loud for lunch!

I booked a month ahead but unfortunately we were seated in the bar area and I didn’t realise till we arrived. Would have been nice to be be told prior to arriving as we were in town from Australia. Noise levels were high at the bar area.

The food and service however was incredible!! The quality of food and service was outstanding.

Gresat atmosphere, delicous subtly spiced food, slightly over oily in places, but good value when sharing plates with genrous portions of bread Spent £45 per head including wine and felt very full!

Great food! Great fun! Amazing setting in the heart of the King's Cross development. Lovely staff who are fun, relaxed and yet very professional.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an entertaining and enjoyable night out.

It's food you need to eat slowly to savour the wild array of flavours in each dish. Whatever else you order, try the aubergine and the octopus. Amazing. If there is only counter seating available when you book, TAKE IT! You'll have the chance to watch the kitchen brigade do their thing, although it may make ordering more difficult because everything you'll see being prepared will look delicious. The staff are great - friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Add to that an excellent wine list that won't break the bank and you've got a new favourite place to eat.

The food was really creative and tasty. The music however was super loud. I did ask the waitress but I think management didn’t want to lower the volume. The waitress advised us that it’s small sharing plates but the portions were pretty big and we got full fast which was a shame cause we ordered loads, and couldn’t finish the food.

Absolutely outstanding. Meal was terrific. Service from the kitchen and service staff was warm, inviting, welcoming and friendly. A real treat.

One comment - those stool at the kitchen bar are not meant for men. I would gladly perch uncomfortably there again to enjoy the great food, drink and service, but seriously, those stools are not right.

Awesome food- from eggplant and cauliflower dishes with Persian spices to black and white ravioli with prawns in spicy sauce. Don’t miss the smoked honey ice cream!

One of my favourite restaurants, the flavours, the textures, colours and the atmosphere, it never fails to make for a great night out or cheeky lunch.
I have taken many groups of friends and their feedback is always 5 star.
The Octopus dish is one of my favourites but there again as you go through your meal one dish after another is delicious.
Great to see the kitchen in full swing which creates an atmosphere of energy and excitement as to what lovely things you will eat next.
I couldn't recommend The Coal Office enough!

We came here on New Year's Eve for a late lunch. The food was excellent, we sat at the bar and enjoyed watching the chefs preparing the dishes. The music was a bit on the loud side. The polenta and kubla startees were delicious. We also really enjoyed the Midnight Shwarma seabass. We will definitely come back here again.

Ideally I would have liked something a little plainer on the lunch menu. Our taste buds certainly had a new experience.
