Beautiful relaxed fine dining with a fantastic front of house team. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough. One of the most exciting independent restaurants in London right now.

The food was incredible, gorgeous space and the service was fantastic. Brought us out some extras for my husbands 30th and the staff were so warm and lovely and really made the evening special. We will definitely be returning, still drooling over the food.

Had the set menu and drinks pairing and food and drink as good as ever, service was outstanding and felt personalised. Acoustics not ideal - we had a long table of 6 and it was a little hard to hear the person at the other end. Overall very enjoyable evening.

Food very good but let down by poor service ,taking plates away before one of our party had finished,serving men first ,little auster.
We felt The cost was Too high for a set meal which was very nice but not special enough for the price.

Great New Years Eve menu, staff very friendly and having dined at the bar counter, I appreciated that the sous chef served and presented the courses directly.

Hmmm..the veggie option was a single grilled courgette. Not very interesting or good value. Staff were lovely and great sommelier

Surprised that the food was so good especially given the £44 price for tasting menu . Especially liked the lamb dish , bags of flavour . Friendly and attentive staff , only small issue was that the team only really explained the dish to one side of the table ...who then had to tell the other side ( small issue partly down to noise level )

Wonderful meal, a real treat to celebrate a special occasion - the starters and onion soup were a highlight! Also would like to mention that they were very accommodating with my nut allergy. You never know if you'll be made to feel safe and that there's clear communication with the kitchen. I wish every restaurant could offer this level of awareness.

Great environment and a relaxed, but fun atmosphere. We went for the set menu, the selection of 3 small starters and the burnt onion soup were absolutely amazing, would love to have had more. The deserts were also superb. Only thing we were a bit disappointed by was the lamb. As this was the main course we expected it to be a bigger plate but it was more of a tapas style taster, it was also very rare which wasn't to our taste, although that's more of a personal preference. Overall I'd definitely recommend.

Perilla is a good value-for-money tasting menu option. Went on a Monday night, still plenty of people but the ambiance remains quiet. The environment is simple and nice, well decorated. A really good point is about service, my girlfriend had allergy issue to some of the ingredients and the chef kindly offered an alternative plate for starter which was very tasty. Overall, the food was good but slightly disappointing for some of the dishes, primarily not very sophisticated and portion were relatively small, except for desserts. Given that the price point is on the low side (£40 per person), would still recommend the experience. Last but not least: they gave some nice bread to take away for free.

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.

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!
