What an amazing secret place. You would never know from street this place exists. The food is mostly Thai influenced and plenty of it. They do great job packaging extra food to go. Dining outside in your private see through “igloo” is such an awesome experience. Service was impeccable

We arrived on time for reservation and checked in with the lady at the restaurant. She said to go to the bar. We went to the bar, said we were checking in for reservation and were told to just go outside. We went outside and saw only the beach area. We asked a waitress going by and she said to sit anywhere. We waited then realized this was the wrong area completely. Walked around to the garden area and sat down as there was no hostess. We went back to bar area and were given 2 very messy surfboard shaped menus. Nothing appealing. Walked back inside to main restaurant and asked for their menu and ordered 3 appetizers at bar and were told they would come to table. An hour later still no food and no one has come to table.

I wanted something different to treat my friend and celebrate her birthday and new job.
The service was second to none and the food was so delicious.
You are whisked away from central London with no noise and it was like being in a private dining room
Definitely recommend

The staff was really friendly and nice, but the food, omg, the food was awful. We’ve got pancakes we couldn’t cut with a knife and croque monsieur with some kind of cheap cheese. Don’t recommend!!!

We had a great experience under the dome. Everyone loved it and will be talking about it forever!! Great food was had. Only blemish was the service. They stated out great but as the evening went on the wheels came off. Since there were only a few domes going it wasn’t like they were busy. For example, we ordered wine when they brought the main and it wasn’t delivered till almost everyone had finished the course. So, no reason not to add this experience to your life, but with a little care they would be 5 stars across the board!

The service was impeccable, but the food was below-par. The savory part of the afternoon tea was not bad, but the sweets were just not up to standard! The cakes were quite dry, and the scones were too dense

It’s a very beautiful place, something different. Lovely, helpful and attentive staff. Very expensive for what you get, because it’s sharing style food. They served literally the Minimum, there was 8 of us we decided to have a mixture of £60 & £40 Menu, both were very much the same. The food was enough for 5 people. We had a nice time but food is Ever So little and Pricy. They need to be more Generous with their serving

It was a perfect night out with a group of friends. We went for the £60 per head menu. The food is yummy and plentiful. Staff were very attentive, no request was too much. It was exactly what we had in mind and we had a lovely time.

Ambience is great and food very good. Not a lot of rice for the large group as we were.

Service was slow. We buzzed for drinks etc and it took ages and lots of ringing which spoiled the atmosphere. There was some confusion about desserts too that made things a tad awkward.

Extremely slow service, there were 5 pods, all fully occupied and only two waiters - we waited over an hour between courses without even being offered a drink. Not the waiters fault, they were simply totally under staffed. Not acceptable for anyone.

We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday and it happens to be on Christmas Eve.
The domes were beautifully set up: warm and cosy. We had a choice of menus and after choosing, the food kept on coming. It was pan- Asian. The food was delicious.
The service was excellent. There is a call button to call the waiter.
The ambience was great. We would go there again

Poor service from start to finish. We went for lunch, 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 children. The concept works but the staff are unprepared. Cream for the afternoon tea was off and portions were unexceptable.

The minimum spend of £200 is easily achieved but to be honest I’d go elsewhere.

I booked the Domes for my Girlfriends birthday and we had a night to remember. From the moment we arrived the staff looked after our every need. After a very short wait in the fantastic K bar area we were quickly shown to the Domes. First impressions as you walk out are breathtaking with the Church lit up and all Domes beautifully presented. After being seated in the Dome it felt like we were the only people around as the noise from the busy road outside was non existent. The waiter we had was extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the food offering my Girlfriend some guidance on choosing from 2 dishes she was undecided about. The food came fairly quickly which was nice and when it arrived it was outstanding the prawns and Seabass are presented impeccably and perfectly constructed with all the flavours. At no point during the evening did we feel rushed, which can sometimes be the case in good restaurants, we were free to take our time and soak in the stunning evening. The blankets available for each table in the outside area is a great touch and shows the level of detail and care that goes into every aspect of the hotel and dinning experience. All in all this is a night we will never forget and i will be recommending the Domes to everyone i know. This really is a hidden Gem in London and something that is a must do!

After a mixup with OpenTable and the info it was displaying re this venue I was contacted by the service manager and he explained the mixup and offered compensation. I'm yet to take them up on this but I'm giving 4 stars until I do. Because of the good service.
