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
I will not be returning to this restaurant. The service was incredibly poor.
We had a table booked for 2200, arrived a few minutes early and the host took 7minutes to find a table, dismissed us and walked passed and then finally approached us and told us at 2205 that the bar and kitchen close at 2215. Why would you accept bookings at that time if your staff are going to rush me to order.
Your host needs etiquette and hosting training as he was rude and dismissive.
The food was cold, lacked in flavour, very bland and boring. The cocktails were terrible and when getting the same cocktail twice, they didn’t taste the same.
I will not be returning as I believe that restaurant needs so much needed work.
Great staff. Food was mediocre but well presented.
Ordered the chicken hanging kebab. The chicken was pathetic and the onion at the top was past ‘chargrilled’ so I sent it back. To be fair they offered for me to have something different to had the duck noodles which was fine
25% student discount. Really great, friendly, polite and fast service. Quality, unique food. 10/10
We had the most fabulous time at Giraffe! The food and drink was delicious and quick to arrive. A special thanks to Lisa/Lis (apologies if I spelt your name wrong), for being so friendly, wonderful, and ensuring we had a great time with everything we needed!
Lovely atmosphere, happy servers, great food, excellent value
The best experience ever
Service was super quick! Lovely food and drinks.
Put off by loud noise next door, not Giraffe’s fault but was distracting. Food was cold, didn’t look fresh.
Food took a while to arrive, and was somewhat cold when it did but overall had a good time.
Good food, good servicr, shame about the weirdos sat behind us...
Very very slow service. Took 20 minutes for anyone to come to our table when we got there. Was very difficult to navigate their menu with a gluten allergy. Wait staff is overall not very friendly. Ordered a vegan dish and it came with chicken. Ordered the duck noodle salad with gluten free noodles and got a completely different meal. It’s a good thing their food is reasonably priced.
Great value for money. I had lunch with my daughter for £20 😱 and it was delicious. Beautiful katsu curry and you just can’t beat their kids menu (£3 for main, drink and dessert). Very busy but despite that the food wasn’t late.
The service was good, although they didn’t check if we enjoyed our food (not a tragedy as I understand all the tables were full).
The host provided crayons and paper for my child which made her day.
Would highly recommend, can’t find anything better in this price range.
Great setting. My vegetable kebab could have been cooked a bit longer - onions were practically raw. I didn't like the fact that they put a plastic straw in my iced tea without me asking. I think this is illegal? But generally a nice, lively place with good service.
Service poor. Waited 10-15 mins before asking for menus. One food order arrived incorrect. Hot drinks not hot enough by time they are brought to table. All Day Breakfast, black pudding overcooked. Toast undertoasted and unappetising bread.
The food was very average. Disappointed could only choose from breakfast menu but then the breakfasts were really underwhelming. Shouldn't be difficult to make toast, toasted, bacon freshly cooked or freshly poached eggs (clearly been warmed through and not properly).
Highly recommend, flavourful food and amazing atmosphere
Amazing vegan food - great atmosphere for chilled dinner and cocktails
Very casual place, trainers/gym wear. Booked thinking it was a nice nice bar but was definitely casual
Overall a very good visit. The staff were amazing and definitely a restaurant that is good value for money. Worth mentioning that it is very crowded and tables are quite close together.
Good, fast service. Would of liked to purchase more. Charged incorrectly
The menu choice is not as good as it used to be and the quality has also slipped. However it remains a great location.
This was my first visit to Giraffe, and will definitely return. We arrived early and no problem getting us a seat, did not feel rushed in any way, service was excellent, and food was plenty. Excellent choice of cocktails at good prices, especially for London!
We had a very nice table outside in the sun, the staff was very friendly , the menu is well
Priced and the cocktails are £5 ! We will
Clearly be back very soon !
The food has really deteriorated over the years. The burger was worse than McDonald’s. The menu used to be fun and international. Really different. Now it is bog standard tourist food. Never grow too big. You loose what made you great.
Cold and wet and the noise from the next door building site was painful.
But staff did their best, food arrived promptly and hot.
Delicious brunch at Giraffe. Such a great location right by the river and good covid measures.
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
Good to have outdoor dining both with and without umbrellas. Menu is very broad and diverse though portion sizes are somewhat small though it’s easy to add on smaller sides.
Awesome food, tasty drinks, friendly and helpful staff! 10/10
Excellent service! Fantastic food! Highly recommend!
Tables were cramped together we were out in between a small space surrounded by 4 other tables, it felt like we was sitting on top of strangers. Other customers and staff were having to squish past our table. Pornstar martini was too bitter but had to bite the bullet!
First meal out since lockdown and it was great. Very busy but felt under control and food and service were very good. We were lucky with the weather but there were parasols in any event. Good to be out!
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!
