Service was excellent and a very cool environment. A very creative menu with portions that were filling but light. The wine list was exceptional with value for money choices. Overall a great venue for a group gathering or romantic evening of Asian fusion food

The whole experience feels like an intellectual exercise. There’s no joy involved in the process. Dishes were at best really nice but not exceptional. The sommelier was knowledgable. Considering what the other award winning and Michelin starred Asian and fusion restaurants in London are delivering in terms of taste and experience, Flat Three is falling behind.

Super amazing experience - had been to Flat Three when it first opened a few years ago and it was a weird experience. They have revamped the menu while really being thoughtful and staying true to what they believe in - namely amazing and unique flavour combinations and delicious food. Am grateful I live nearby so I can go again soon!

Wonderful food, great wine and perfect service, just the right amount of attentive. Great find, we went on a Thursday eve, not too busy (I bet it is at the weekend though), food was creative, different and delicious. Plenty of vegan/gluten free options beautifully presented. Wine quite expensive but well worth it, the staff are all extremely helpful and accommodating all in all I would definitely go again and recommend it as a great spot!

We went for dinner mid week. As it was a special occasion we asked for an intimate table and got one in the booth which was lovely. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu with the wine pairing and one with the non alcoholic pairing. Both options were really well chosen and worked well with the food. The food was unique and really delicious and the service was exceptional. They introduced you to the dishes with detail and about the wines and drinks as well. They really know their food. Save this place for a Special dinner and save up for it!

FlatThree had beautifully crafted dishes with flavours which blew our mouths away.

Waiting staff were well-informed on the menu, giving in-depth detail on both dishes and wine.

The dessert with a paired dessert wine was a highlight. We didn’t do the 5 course with paired wine this time but it added so much to the dish, we definitely would next time. Highly recommended.

Location carina ed ben tenuta con bella cucina davvero a vista.
Piatti piuttosto ricercati, ma davvero squisiti e ben presentati anche se le porzioni sono forse un po troppo piccole
Buono il rapporto qualità/prezzo, assolutamente da consigliare

This is our third, and best visit to Flat 3. The cuisine was very good on our prior visits while it reached a new high this time. The chef appears more confident and is able to extract simplicity from sometimes quite elaborate dishes. The staff is excellent and have in-depth wine knowledge.

My partner and I went here for a birthday dinner - they very kindly put us in a cosy booth in under one of the arches which had a nice intimate feel. Fantastic food on the set/ tasting menu - I would highly recommend the 'sand carrots'. Everything tasted delicious, all having a Japanese twist. The service was excellent too, very friendly but professional waiting staff. The only negative comment I have is that the temperature was quite cold in the restaurant.

Went to Flat Three in September and had a great dinner. The knowledge that the staff had about the food and drinks were amazing and we got a great service.
Will return and would 10/10 recommend if you want a dining experience above the ordinary!

The fusion of Japanese, Korean and Nordic cuisines simply didn’t work. The only exception: wagyu salmon - outstanding.

Only 3 and 5 course menus available. My vegetarian wife didn’t find her dishes savory. My meat and seafood dishes were mixed.

Very high priced wine list inconsistent with modest surroundings and homely feel.

The food was inventive -- but not for attention-grabbing reasons. There's real love in the crafting of each dish, and in the curating of each tasting menu. The menu has a distinct Japanese and Korean bent to it, and if you want to go vegan, it's possible to do so. As good as the food was, which was outstanding, the service was even better. Granted, I did go on a slow, Tuesday night. But still, the staff were helpful, attentive, and obviously proud to be serving the food they were serving. I cannot wait to go again the next time I'm in London.

The food was amazing. The service was excellent with the semoliar doing a great job to help us select a great white wine that complemented our entree that was different to the one selected by me...I gave a low score for ambiance as one person on a table 10m from us was so loud that reverberated through the whole restaurant. My wife and I am sure to visit again...

My family own hotels and restaurants and I have dined in all types of restaurants all over the world for over 55 years! Since I was 5 years old or so!! This was probably the most over-hyped and worst restaurant I have ever eaten in. Not fusion but confusion. But I left a £10 tip for the lady sommelier and waitress who both were very helpful in my choice of a fine Mersault Premier Cru.
