    Short a-la-carte menu and a four course set. A-la-carte is small sharing plates. We went for the set. Minestrone soup like you've never tasted, fresh and vibrant with raw courgette, homemade sun-dried cherry tomatoes, lots of fresh herbs. Skate wing en papilotte, but rather than steamed in paper, steamed in leaves served with cuttlefish popcorn. Slices of belly pork with a sweet red pepper sauce. Strawberries and custard, fine dining style. Ask for the 'other' wine list and don't be embarrassed to ask for help/recommendations. Very approachable, professional and knowledgeable staff, not at all stuffy. 'Service' is included in the item prices. They pay a proper wage rather than relying on customer tips. This attracts the best. Thanks guys.

    I went on a Friday lunch and was surprised to see how quiet it was at first but the server was great. She explained everything well and was prompt, polite and knowledgeable. The food was phenomenal! I had the set menu with bread & butter, soup course, fish course, main and dessert. It all tied into each other beautifully, the soup especially was one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. I will visit again.

    Absolutely delicious and inventive food from quality ingredients. A small, manageable and well thought through menu. A great energetic ambience and helpful, attentive service. A nice thought too that the overall price includes service for the staff.

    Delicious food and wonderful service. I had a £90 discount from my credit card that we used, without which I would say the food is on the more expensive side for what you get. A lovely evening nonetheless.

    Veggie main on Sunday 20th was very tasty but shouldn’t have been priced the same as the meat main because it was small and had no sides. Some of my dad’s pork was pink and jelly like on the bone. I mentioned it to the waiter who said it was meant to be like that. It was apparently very tasty and my dad enjoyed it, but I’m not sure it’s always safe to eat pork that colour/texture. We otherwise had a very nice meal.

    Another lovely afternoon at Perilla - really good food and menu options : I love the Sunday menu style of sharing everything and doing it with friends or family always makes it special. Service was relaxed as is the general vibe of the place. One of my favourite restaurants to be honest - highly recommended

    The food was nice but failed to blow me away. The smaller portion sizes would be more palatable if the flavours were amazing, however you only end up ordering more because you’re still hungry, rather than because you want to try the other dishes. It was a great atmosphere but we opted for dessert elsewhere.

    Really disappoints given the hype. Confused “daily” menu which changes quarterly. Components don’t work together, pastry damp from sitting out too long. Wine opened away from table.

    Always leave the place with a happy smile. The set menu is a really good value and you can get to taste 5 innovative dishes - all soooooo yummy! I live South East London and it takes almost an hour to get to Perilla but it is totally worth the trip. Great service and atmosphere as well.
