One of the most innovative and exciting menus I have experienced for a long time. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Service is friendly but not over-familiar, the atmosphere is buzzy without being noisy - truly my favourite place at the moment. Will be going back very soon.

My partner was ill afterwards, although there are other issues, we both think it was the poor quality of the food that was a contributory factor - as well as it being far too expensive.

The food is beautiful but not so tasty with all these innovative ingredients. A waitress served me with bad attitude.

Excellent tasting menu at a very reasonable price. Some interesting wine options included in the wine tasting - some I would not have chosen myself as a drinking wine, however matched the food perfectly!

The food at this restaurant is amazing. We have been twice for their special, table-sharing Sunday lunch and left very happy both times. The concept is a little odd - "suppose one of us doesn't like the shared main?". But the food is so good that it is most unlikely that this will happen. We were accompanied the second time by a coeliac friend and she received special treatment, with a main course and dessert specially made for her; it looked great and apparently was! They are very busy and so service can be a little slow, but all the staff are so nice that this is forgivable.
They have good background music - not loud- and the ambience is as we personally like. They make good cocktails too. We'll be back.

If you’d told me before the meal that the onion soup and the bread/butter would be the best bits I wouldn’t have believed you. Divine.

Lovely location, wonderful aesthetic. Would recommend

It was absolutely brilliant, so much so that this is the first time I have been moved to write a review of it. The staff were so nice and we had a brilliant time and the food was outta this world.

Thanks

For the location and value perilla is astonishing. We had the tasting menu at £44. Delicious snacks, amazing bread, soup, scallop, lamb and a lovely trio of desserts.
The use of flavour and texture is so Clever. Nice range of wine by the glass as well

We sat down at 7am, though through chatting didn't order the food till 7.30 and we sadly missed out on the Al a Carte menu :( So order quickly when you sit, as its more than likely your table will be booked again for 9pm.

Though Perilla were very sweet and after we finished our drinks offered us a free drink at the bar, and as we left we were given a loaf of their stunning bread. Great service :)

Will be back

This was my fourth dinner at Perilla and together with Hide Above it is my joint favourite restaurant in London. The mark this time is a little down on last time and I feel it might just be because Ben Marks was not in the kitchen so his small, but important, personal touches were not all there on a menu that has not changed over my previous visits. Nonetheless it is a joy to be in a restaurant where the food is inventive and extremely tasty with excellent service as always and a varied wine list at sensible prices. More please!
