Gunpowder Tower Bridge
Need to book at 1:15 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Excellent food. Reasonably priced
Food was mostly very good but some of the dishes were really very heavy (swimming in oil) and not that flavoursome. There were some tables who were making really a lot of noise, shouting and all. It’s not the restaurant’s fault of course, but it really wasn’t the dining experience we were after. The service was excellent and very friendly and helpful with lots of good advice on the menu.
Amazing food and great staff made this visit truly great. Would recommend to anyone looking for great dishes with reasonable prices.
The food is amazing, service is excellent and it’s such good value for money!
Was a fabulous venue. Very attentive staff with lovely food. Had a great birthday meal there.
Great food, lamb and soft shell crap amazing! Will be back.
Good was good, service was not
Only negative thing is the food comes out too quickly. We were sat down for 5 minutes and about 20 dishes came all at once. I guess next time we’ll just know to order starters first then wait til we finish to order mains. Everything else incredible.
Amazing food, better than dishoom!
Would 100% return
Service was poor. The food was good but very overpriced. I wouldn’t return in a hurry. Tables are too close together and very small so impossible to have food all served at once.
Good. But wasn’t as wowed by the food as expected.
Unfortunately the waiter seemed intrusive and had a disagreement with kitchen staff, then discussed it with a co worker...this was not pleasant. The food was average and some dishes came out after a long delay. Dissatisfied overall.
We had an absolutely wonderful anniversary celebration. The husband absolutely loved the food - this is not an easy task to achieve! I've been before and loved it. See previous review! Will be returning and soon!
Great tasting food and good service but highly overpriced
Amazingly flavorful Indian food served tapas style. Lively energetic restaurant which means that reservations are a must. Service was inattentive at times.
Food was not very warm!
Service at door was extremely poor!
The food was incredible - definitely worth it.
On the NYE set menu, the first two courses were served cold and I'm not sure they were supposed to be? Also I found some of the flavours on the other dishes to be very strong and salty. However the restaurant is set in a fantastic location next to Tower Bridge and the ambiance was lovely.
Great value NYE meal, esp. the champagne! Food delicious as usual. Glad to hear that the rabbit biriyani is back on the menu. We'll be back soon!
Gunpowder is hands down my favourite restaurant in London. The food is incredible. We've visited the Spitalfields restaurant many times before, but this was our first visit to the Tower Bridge branch.It was NYE, and even though the restaurant was fully booked,the food was still absolutely amazing and the service was great. The FOH staff are also lovely - our friends arrived with 2 cases of beer (as we were off to a party afterwards) and they offered to put them in the fridge for us! Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Simply stunning! One of the best dining experiences my wife and I have ever had. The food was exceptional.
First time dining here and the service and food was pretty good. Will definitely dine here again.
We went for a 19:00 o’clock dinner, everything was genuinely amazing. From the service to the wine and the food, we will 100% be back!
Let’s start with the positive: the service was excellent and our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful with my allergies.
The portions were generous and the food tasty if somewhat greasy.
Unfortunately the tables are minuscule and so cramped together that we felt as if we were dining with the table next to us!
The toilets were also pretty grim, with a toilet seat and soap dispenser hanging off.
Doubt we’ll be going back I’m afraid.
Incredible food! Would highly recommend! Staff a little pushy with regards to reservation time, it’s quite strict as it’s very popular, so be sure to order desert before they tell you your time is up.
Great food and service with an eclectic and tasty menu. Lots of interesting dishes to share and enough room for some good deserts afterwards.
Excellent service and food. Will come again.
Good food, Not standard Indian restaurant menu but very good. Although it was on the expensive side.
Rushed to finish but otherwise great experience. No breads was an issue
We arrived early and in spite of the restaurant appearing to be full they quickly found us a good table. It was quite noisy but in a vibrant way and with an energetic feel. The service was attentive and efficient and the food (we had the set menu) very enjoyable. We were not rushed and, overall, had a very good experience.
Every time I have been to this restaurant the food has been of a fantastic quality. The weekend brunch option is great value for money if you have a big appetite!
Great ambiance and buzzing, service was hit and miss but friendly. Food was either amazing or average. I would go back though.
Really clever menu with tons of flavour in. Great variety for the vegetarians out there too.
The lamb chops are amazing as is the whole menu
One visit is never enough
Nirmal is a culinary genius
We had a perfect evening - great food and a wonderful service!
We got caught in traffic but the staff were ever so helpful and kind. Superb food and service. Gutted that the rasam bomb wasn’t in this branch. The sigree brocoli and bhindi was delicious!
Third time here at the Tower Bridge branch. Still brilliant, if expensive. But when it's this good, I don't mind. The lamb chops are beyond exquisite.
Food is really great. Chops, rabbit pilau, duck, okra fries, prawns - every single thing was sublime.
Fantastic food and service!!! Would recommend highly
Great food and wine. The soft shell crap was particularly good.
