Katsu Chicken Curry
A Japanese favourite - breaded chicken in a creamy katsu sauce, served on a bed of jasmine rice
Two delicious scoops of ice cream. Choose from chocolate, or vanilla or both!
Prime 8oz Rump Steak*
Served how you like it, with skin-on fries and a dressed green leaf salad. Add garlic sauce
Food wasn’t as nice as expected
Chips weren’t hot, only warm
service was very good and overall it felt like a safe environment.
At first from the outside it appeared there wasn't much social distancing taking place but once seated it felt OK.
Food was better than expected and overall we had a good time and I would go again
Awesome food, tasty drinks, friendly and helpful staff! 10/10
Angelina and Christian were both amazing. Lots of fun and both so accommodating
Really lovely service, great food and wonderful prices, especially for the location. Outdoor seating was really good, great coverage from the umbrellas as it did rain a little bit while we were eating but we didn’t get wet at all which was fantastic.
Two out of the three meals we had were very disappointing. I understand that they have to prep food at busy times but our fish and chips order appeared three minutes after we ordered it. It tasted like it was waiting there for awhile. This is a salad was predominantly shredded red cabbage and raw onion. Wasn’t pleasant.
It was great to go out with friends post Covid..thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a bit chilly - so the weather could have been on our side..nevertheless it was great t o have a normalish dinner out.
Great atmosphere and value for money. Would recommend.
Value for money, friendly staff and quick service!
Only missed 5 stars because of two things:
1) was really hard to get a waiters attention to order/pay the bill
2) also, I THINK a they are running quite a reduced menu atm BUT .... food and drinks came super fast, and were hot, so I can’t fault it to much.
Looking forward to coming back again, great value for money. My colleagues have been back since, so it’s clearly left a good impressions
Certain staff members need to work on their micro aggressions...
Nice, professional staff who made it a good evening
Amazing food, great service and value for money!!
Really great atmosphere, good food and costumer service from our waiter
Really great place - good food, attentive service and we somehow managed to have our table for well over the 2 hour limit. Thank you Giraffe, I'd book again!
Great few problems at the start but was fixed immediately!
Nice atmosphere, food is good, not expensive, friendly staff.
They had no heaters outside as they were broken but the service was fantastic and price so reasonable.
We were greeted in a friendly manor, they were quick to ask about our drinks, unfortunately sold out of my fav cocktail at the time, but wasn’t a long wait for the food and it was all hot and in decent sized portions, felt very full after a starter, main and two drinks
Good food, decent service
Unfortunately there’s a huge amount of redevelopment going on right next door so it was very NOISY- too loud to have a conversation without having to raise your voice
Tables are also NOWHERE NEAR 2m APART. I was touching elbows with the tables around me
Incredibly busy, with lots of new staff post lockdown, but they dealt with it very quickly and efficiently
Wouldn’t recommend - too crowded, service was very slow. The tables had all been rearranged and waiters kept approaching with food and drink orders that weren’t for our table. It happened five or six times so started to get annoying. The food was average and at 27ish pounds per head, I expected a bit better. Cocktails were good value and servers were friendly.
Food and service were fantastic. Only thing that spoilt it was the constant drilling from the building site next door which we weren’t warned about the when booking.
Good food and service. A lot of noise from adjacent building site which became unbearable but we were due to leave by then anyway.
Got a booking an hour beforehand, very helpful staff, quick service, good atmosphere, great prices. Perfect post-Lockdown experience!
Only visited for drinks which were very reasonably priced. Very good service even when busy. Outdoor heating was a major plus!
Service was a bit slow for the amount of staff around but overall it was very good. Food was tasty and the terrace was lovely. We didn’t even need the heaters.
Food was lovely, cocktails tasted off though!
Service could have been a bit more naturally friendly. Portion sizes small, but the food was delicious and excellent value for money
Very nice, table in the sun, great service and yummy food
The food is average but we were expecting that and were just keen to meet friends and eat outside. Unfortunately our waitress was surly and rather rude which - after a year of not eating out - was a real shame.
The service was really bad - we had to ask twice for everything!
Great location and good prices for London
Overcrowded - no social distancing at all. Food arrived cold. Had run out of Prosecco and also unable to make majority of cocktails on the menu. Did make an espresso martini which was vile. Left after only 10mins. Would not recommend or go back.
It was good service, great food and incredibly busy.
My concern is the floor in the ladies toilets was very wet and easy to slip over, also the soap was empty around 3:30pm.
Food and service were good. Waiter was very helpful in finding out a few things about the veggie options for us.
Two people had the burger and they felt the meat was cheap and had bits of bone in it.
It would be nice to have a few veggie options on the menu that are not meat substitutes, eg. A bean burger or some sort of lentil salad.
Overall, we had an enjoyable time - our first outing of 2021.
Amazing! So reasonable with great atmosphere would go again!
Poor value for money
Service couldn’t have been better- including moving us to a quieter table as in spite of booking online we were initially put in an area which was full of families with young children- couldn’t hear each other speak. Found out later we were seated in area for walk ins. Food awful- both had fish and chips which we’ve had at giraffe before. Batter thick and undercooked - very peppery which wasn’t mentioned on menu. Was gross. Different recipe to standard fish chips. Sea salt garnish! Whole dish lukewarm. Best bit of meal was mushy peas. So disappointing as first meal out after lockdown. Had been regulars at giraffe but won’t be going again unless desperate. Understaffed - quite long waits for everything- but staff were lovely- not their fault that rushed off their feet - they coped as well as they could. Tables very close together.
Such a disappointing meal, undercooked chicken and very poor availability of dishes so early in the day.
