    Excellent food in a fun/quirky setting. Big flavours. Chef Tomas Lidakevicius works wonders with fresh seasonal produce, really elevating humble vegetables and bring out the most from them. Not long before a Michelin Star comes knocking at this rate.

    Fridge empty at last , New Year , new resolution dine out at least once a week. First call it had to be Turnips Tasting with Tom. As we approached the restaurant it was freeezing! Have we made a mistake? Of course not the front of house we’re very welcoming and the heaters were everywhere. My three layers came off and we enjoyed another stunning meal from the very talented team Chef has with him. Wine pairings were stunning. I notice they have offers through January, definitely will be back before the month is over.

    Fantastic space and dining experience even in winter. We had blankets to keep us warm. The food and wine was absoluely amazing and the staff took time to explain what we were eating. Occasionally the wait between courses was a little longer than we would have liked but the ambience more than made up for the wait. Would definitely go back again. Thanks for a fantastic evening!!

    My husband’s Birthday treat he invited nine VIP’s (me included) to Turnips with Tomas to celebrate the occasion and what a lovely celebration it was. We have been to this restaurant several times and it never fails to deliver, the entire menu was new which makes this place stand out from other fine dining venues we frequent. The tasting menu had superb wine accompaniment and the fruit and vegetable led dishes were super seasonal ; Cep mushroom with salsify, black and white truffles with celeriac and Agria potatoes, Italian winter tomatoes with finger limes and stone bass, Cauliflower with tardivo (a type of radicchio) and wild venison. Followed by Victoria pineapple with Maple syrup and finally Vassout Comice pear with Caramelia chocolate . SUBLIME!!

    Stunningly amazing food. Wine pairing was spot on and delicious. Service felt very personal and attentive. Surroundings were relaxed and not too chilly for December. Heaters, blankets and fleeces help. Possibly feels on the dearer side because of the venue, but with the quality of the produce, it's a hard call to say if it's value for money. Think that would be a personal call.

Really liked the chef presentations. Made the experience more enjoyable. Wine chosen was delicious too. Would definitely recommend. Thanks to the team who made the day so enjoyable.

We went for the tasting experience and the it was absolutely delightful! The staff were friendly and accommodating. Would recommend for a lovely treat with friends!

    Delicious food, great service in a quirky, unusual and fun setting. Especially loved the venison and dessert. Lovely English white wine from New Hall. Chefs talk with great passion about the various courses as they present them . Wear warm clothes as it is partially outside albeit under the market cover. Trains overhead provide extra atmosphere!

    Absolutely delicious. We had the tasting menu, every dish was spot on and carefully put together, each with its own twist. One of the best tasting menus I have had. The setting is great but bear in mind you are still essentially outdoors in an area of borough market so wrap up warm! Highly recommend.

    We had an excellent lunch at Turnips. the food, the service, the ambiance, everything was perfect. It is indeed a little strange to hear the train passing above but it makes the whole experience quirkier. We had the tasting menu and it was perfect. How they can make vegetables taste so good is beyond me. We will definitely come back to try more dishes.

    What an amazing experience! The food was delicious! Service excellent. Atmosphere great - it was not too noisy (I was worried it might be after reading another review) but we were there at lunchtime so maybe they turn the music up later? I was also worried that we might be cold but we were very cosy. All in all excellent and I want to go back soon!!

    Absolutely fabulous food in a terrific setting in the midst of the market. Excellent friendly professional service and everything beautifully presented. Top marks for very high quality wine glasses too (plus excellent if expensive wine selection). Noise from trains overhead can be a little unsettling at first but adds to the overall uniqueness of the experience. One very talented chef supported by an equally first class team. I’ll be back

    I was very excited to come here - in the heart of Borough market, and have a different sort of dining experience. first - the food was great, really thoughtful and delicious - 10/10. We ordered wine from the wine list rather than the pairings and it was fine. second - service is lovely, very good - gold standard. the only "but" is the fact you are right under train lines and there is loud music, possibly to help distract from that - so we spent alot of the evening asking one another to repeat something they said or pausing while the trains passed overhead. Yes, it is unique as to atmosphere and go enjoy that but not a place for a deep meaningful focused conversation! And now I know. But i will be back - for different sorts of occasions. Well done!
