Domes was broken on arrival. So we’re moved to the restaurant inside.

Starter was lovely but main meals were all cold or lukewarm my chips were raw in the centre.
We waited over an hour between starter and main course. Ordered drinks and they took 45 mins to arrive despite us being able to see the bar.

Gave us complementary deserts that were stale and hard.

Although the manager couldn’t do enough to try and put it right we had travelled a long way to experience the domes and it was really disappointing.

The pod was lovely and festive with lights inside. It was lovely and warm and cozy.
The only think missing was some music. It could do with a blue tooth speaker of some sort

Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was good and the overall experience was really pleasant. Nice garden area, could do with a few more fairy lights in places to light it all up abit but it’s lovely nonetheless.

Two hours slot is just not enough. The food took a while to arrive.
When we were having dessert we felt rushed as it our two hours slot were over.

We had a great girl night out for my birthday which actually was one of best moments at this amazing hidden gem. The privacy of the domes made it so nice to enjoy great conversations as well great service with devious food that could just not be any thing but happy about. I have recommended this place again to friends and family.

You can make it as romantic as you like or as cozy & secure for a group of friends inside your own dome.
Great experience.
Food is really good.

We were a party of 7 people in a dome. Arrived on the dot at 6pm. There was an hour wait between the starters and main course, we asked for salt and pepper and 45 mins later, we had them!!! (We had our dinner by that time) and at 8pm we were told they’ll serve the deserts outside the dome as they had another booking at 8:30, which obviously I refused , as we still had 30 mins , plus it was them with the slow service. We ordered tea with deserts, deserts arrived at 8:06 we waited 7 mins urea for cutleries!! tea never arrived, by 8:40 we decided to leave as there was no sign of tea! As we were near the exit door, they were coming through with our tea! The manager said they were short stuffed.
Over all, the only good thing about it was dining out with family after almost 2 years.

Great way to dine. You would never know you were in the middle of London. Good food and good service. I'd recommend going in the evening to get the full feel of the lights/bubble. The Grenfell Garden was also beautiful. Location was great. 1 minute walk from the station. Really enjoyable experience

It was so, so lovely. Only thing I’d say is that the bill must come up to £75. I went for a 2 course meal with 2 friends and purchasing 3 drinks covered the £15 that we needed to spend.

Atmosphere in the dome was lovely once it got dark, but from 6-7pm we were surrounded by noisy kids from a birthday party in the garden, so hardly a relaxing, romantic start. Food was very average (the fattoush salad and chicken wings were a particular let down) and certainly not worth £60/pp for the set menu. Cocktail was also poor and overpriced so I reverted to beer. A disappointing experience overall as I had high hopes and paid a lot of money.

Fabulous, unique eating experience in the domes. Magical. Our dome was so warm and comfortable, fabulous value for the 2 course meal, including glass of fizz. Food was lovely and tasty and service by Chris was attentive, helpful and friendly.
Highly recommend.
Also adhere very well to covid measures.
Very impressed with the Secret Garden.

Very poor food and overpriced Iceland food reheated the satay chicken skewers were still frozen also it’s £40 per person and a minimum spend of a £100 pound which they charge to your card as soon as you arrive also service charge.
the waiter staff were polite but the manager guy was a bit weird he keep on asking if really booked and asked my name a few times like he felt we didn’t have a booking overall we spent £121 just the food and two cocktails so when we left to settle the bill they were asking for £121 pound so I had to show them my online banking which showed they had already charged £100 pound then the manager guy asked to take a photo of my statement and finally charged us the £21 pound overall it’s overpriced for what it is and the food is really bad

I am very disappointed with the booking. I booked with an offer of a set menu for summer dinner. All booked. The offer was £19.95 per person. When we arrived, We got a menu for £ 40 pounds. When I tried to explain that I booked the offer of £19.95 the waiter said that this offer was available only from Sunday to Wednesday. We had only one drink in addition to dinner and we left with a bill over a hundred after a terrible dinner. The place looks okey from outside. The food is not nice and the service is just average.

It was to celebrate a friends birthday. No staff member asked or commented about the occasion. Cups were not fine China and the tea was served in large pots and were a bit stewed by the time they were received. I had to ask for more hot water and a change of tea or refills were not offered. We were the only Pod being used so there was no excuse for lack of service. Scones were not covered on arrival and were not warm enough. The sandwiches were very nice but not enough of them. The little pastries were sufficient and quite tasty. We had a long wait for our first drink. Good location for a walk into Knightsbridge after. This was a good Afternoon Tea for those on a diet. I was still hungry when I left. Nice clean modern toilets in the hotel.

Great meal.
Menus not extensive, would struggle with going more than twice.
Fantastic concept, quiet and intimate
Flying ants and bugs in the bubble 😬
Service attentive and not overly intrusive.
Would recommend but take a full table and maximise the evening.
Definitely a good choice 😊

I contacted the restaurant 3 days before to cancel, but they still charged my card £400, when this notice was given in line with their cancellation policy. They have not replied to my emails or phone calls. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!

Awful. Probably the worst food I have had at a restaurant. Ever. The quality tasted like it had been bought from a budget fast food shop and the dishes didn't go together at all....salmon and noodles anyone? The atmosphere leaves little to be desired and although the staff were nice they kept forgetting your order. The drinks were also awful. As soon as you book it charges your card 120 pounds and you will never be able to cancel without being charged no matter how far in advance you book. As my friend put it...London Secret Garden should just remain a secret.

Great atmosphere in the pods, the service was good. The only negative was when the mains lamb shank) was bought in it was cold and I had ordered a rum and coke which I assume was forgotten about.
As mentioned, the service was good however the customer service from Ashraf was beyond exceptional. We had a fairly engaging conversation which made us feel valued to being there, he really boosted the experience

A highly overpriced experience. The food was not pleasant and definitely not worth the minimum spend. The pods are cute but for this price, I will not be returning and do not recommend to others.
