Disappointed!!
Looks very pretty but food is mediocre.
Ordered the sirloin steak but they bought out and charged for a fillet (double the price - not impressed with the shadiness of that/poor customer service experience).
Lamb chops were really fatty and chewy.
Everything else was ok but not memorable.
It’s more a social coffee/shisha place, as the food was definitely not done right.

The food was not all that nor was the service. The people there took so long and we had to ask for knife and fork and that yet they still took long to give and the food was abit cold and the wait was so long.

The decor in the small restaurant bit that we was in was lovely, however looks like they are carrying out building works everywhere else. All the food coming out looked amazing. I had chicken skewer for starter which was amazing and halloumi fries were okay. Had two mocktails which were awful! Not Fresh and more like rubican juice, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. They are way over priced. I had the sapores burger which was nice, could've been hotter, and a side of chips that were awful and just greasey.. overall was okay but wouldn't go back.

What an amazing transformation by Sapores, well done to the guys! I had the suculent lamb chops with saffron rice, delicious! I look forward to trying some of the burgers on the menu so I'll be sure to book a table again once the restaurant is fully refurbiushed. The staff interaction and general atmosphere of the restaurant was spot on!

Give it a go, you will not be disappointed!

My wife and I went on a date night for first time in a while with little one at grandmas house and I have to say we had a great time! We always choose our restaurants based on menu and hygiene rating and sapores ticked both boxes. The decor was amazing, such a lovely atmosphere... saw lots of people taking pics for the gram.

I had the lamb chops which were perfect, my wife had the sapores burger and she said it was cooked just the way she wanted.

The staff were the perfect level of attentiveness for us.

We can’t wait to go back and combine the great food with shisha.

Food was tasteless and bland. Service was fine. Restaurant looked shut from the outside and was a building site walking through it to get to the outside. Seating area was nice and warm and cosy but the food really needs improving

This place is amazing! The decorations, flowers and the theme. Perfect for a date night or a group of friends. Nice urban/hip-hop and RnB music in the background.

The food was great! I recommend the Chicken steaks! It's comes with this persian flavoured rice and sauce, it was delicious! The mockails were also so refreshing and fun to try.

We will be be back soon. We can't wait to try the shisha in June when the government guidelines allow it.

Came here on Monday night after a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed.

Upon arriving, you need to login to track and trace and where a mask when going to your table and then leaving. All staff were wearing masks and hand sanitiser was available at the entrance to the lounge itself.

Our waiter was so lovely and super friendly. I had the Uruguayan Steak which was cooked as I'd requested and was juicy and fresh, my friend got a burger and really enjoyed it. We also added some sides including sweet potato fries and grilled veg.

The venue itself is absolutely stunning and a real gem in London. Honestly, such a beautiful venue and definitely the best looking in Camden. I heard they do shisha too, but due to covid aren't allowed to serve it (government has temp banned it), but is an added bonus when it reopens. Worth a visit, defo recommend!

Came here with the guys over the weekend and loved the lamb chops, I came back a second time! On the first visit, I contacted them beforehand to ask if food is halal which it is. Really helpful and responsive on social media Food was on point and decor looks great. I had the lamb chops which were bangin'. Staff were nice and helpful and the manager was joking about with customers too. Great atmosphere.

Heads up to other customers, businesses have been closed for 5 months, everyone is getting back on their feet, it's a tough time. Be nice and support. Staff are top.

Definitely coming back (probably later this week actually lol)

What a great menu and great venue!!

I ordered the Sapores Burger and my friend ordered the Sirloin steak - medium. The burger was melt in your mouth and the steak was cooked perfectly!

The food came out in a nice timely manner and the staff were so helpful!

The most amazing thing was the decoration! WOW! I will be coming back with my other half on a date night. It so amazing, certainly an Instagram image. Honestly a place you must check out and a place to order good food!

Amazing service, waitresses were incredibly friendly. Beautiful aesthetics and interiors.
We had starters of halloumi and loaded nachos which were cooked to perfection.
For main courses we ordered the lamb chops and chicken kebab which was equally as tasty, and for desert we had baklava.
Feels like you’re in Dubai until you step out onto London streets, can’t wait to come back here in June for shisha!

After reading the reviews I was a bit worried about what to expect (obviously ignoring those who thought there was Shisha despite government guidelines and social media being clear).

I had a wonderful time with my wife. The place looked amazing and took loads of pictures! The food was lovely (I had the steak). The Biscoff and Kinder brownies were addictive! Service and timing of food was absolutely fine. I will be coming back here again.

What Camden exactly needed ! Great food , great service and all round great vibes !!!
As I entered the staff greeted me with energy and smiles which instantly makes me as a costumer very happy. They recommended me the lamb chops with grilled veggies and WOW they were just perfect. The flavours were insane! My partner got the signature SaporesBurger and wow did she love it. It’s stack of their beef patty with their chicken on top , yes it really did look and taste amazing ! To end off with the lovely gentleman suggested to get the lovely freshly made kinder brownies topped off with cookie dough ice cream and I kid you not it was the best brownie I have had !
This is experience is exactly what I was waiting for ! Just can’t wait to try their steaks next time I come back.
Sapores Team thank you for eveurnjng !!

Food was lovely but the service was slow with little communication. The waiter barely communicated to us in particularly with when she brought the food to our table. Food was nice but the cheesy chips was dry and was not melted properly

I really enjoyed my time here. The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding.

I arrived and was seated straight away. The restaurant even called the day before to confirm my booking!!!

Everyone was wearing masks, so I felt safe, and I was easily able to easily check into Test and Trace.

The food was excellent. We had a three course meal. I thought the price was reasonable for two people, especially as the servings were generous. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

It’s been refurbished recently, and the lounge looked spectacular! It’s got an eclectic design and everything works so perfectly together. It was a perfect amount of blending and contrasting.

I messaged them ahead of arriving as I was running late. They responded in just a few minutes!

I’ll definitely go back. Would highly recommend.

Reallyy enjoyed the service and food here. I booked a table via OpenTable and the restaurant called the day before to confirm. Upon arriving, they checked us in, we had to log into Track and Trace and put our masks on to get to our seats.

The venue is stunning with gorgeous bird cage booths (where we sat) with florals hanging around it. The food was great. We had the hummus for starters and I had the Chicken Butterfly which was succulent, and had rice on the side, with a mocktail. The customer service was great, the staff were really friendly and helpful.

We also messaged them beforehand on Instagram, and they were incredibly responsive, as we needed to amend our time. They were really forthcoming in trying to assist our booking and answered all our questions too.

I’ll definitely be back and can’t wait for the indoor restaurant to open up too!
