    Fantastic tasting course for lunch - we really enjoyed the baked yeast sauce on the mushroom tartlet, the brown garlic butter at the start was delicious, and each course came rapidly after we finished the last. Will definitely come again!

    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!

    Food was excellent but the time between courses was way too long. The whole experience took around 3,5 hours which for me is a bit too much. Having said that, that’s the only down side, the rest was brilliant.

    Great tasting menu, some interesting tastes and flavours all of which combined to give a wonderful meal. Lunch time, so was bustling and could not try all the wine pairings. Noisy with trains overhead but adds to charm. Excellent value. Will return one evening and do the full pairing. Really very very good.

    Super evening at Turnips - I go fairly regularly for small plates and with a group of friends on this occasion did the tasting menu Service was attentive and excellent throughout across multiple people…. Waitress, chefs from the kitchen coming to the table, sommelier and maitre”d The food was superb from the canapés through to desserts and the kitchen accommodated a few dietary requests from the group of 6 - whilst not every dish will suit everyone ofcourse , the whole group were lyrical about the dishes both quality and taste Great that Thomas is keeping up the standards in the kitchen and continuing to serving high quality food including some exciting combinations / dishes Only slight disappointment is that Turnips no longer do the excellent cocktails they once did …… not sure why not , but sadly missed as a start to a super evening

    Bloody unbelievable! The consistency of the food, ambience and service is so pleasing and reassuring. To know that when you invite friends along for an entertaining evening who you haven’t seen since the start of lockdown that you have the perfect location and atmosphere, all you then need is to catch up and enjoy each other’s company. The premium wine accompaniment with the tasting menu is outstanding, starting with a stunning white from Chapel Down and finishing with a delicious Sauternes. My friend who is a major distributor of Jersey oysters was very keen to see what Tomas the chef had created with these beauties from the sea , he was not disappointed and that was just the canopies ! Thank you team Turnips for a stunning night👏👏👏

    A unique experience with excellent and interesting food. Staff were kind & attentive. My only gripe was a lot of the food was French & I feel that, as a grocer in Borough Market, they should be championing British produce.

    Excellent four course tasting lunch menu for £35 per head. Food was delicious, they catered for a pescatarian extremely well, and matched wines very good with generous measures. You are in a railway arch with trains going over your head, but that adds to the experience. Not your usual restaurant, we all loved it and I will definitely be going back.

    Exquisite creations by Head Chef Tomasz and his team, beautifully presented with each course in its own unique dish and superb culinary experience all around. The juxtaposition of a fine dining experience next to a veg stall underneath the railway arches adds to the experience being a million miles away from the more formal dining rooms. Service was excellent and it felt very special to have Tomasz present a few dishes himself. Great vegetarian options too!

    I love Jesus. He made our evening so special: what a knockout maitre D. The food was ridiculously good. Fresh. Incredible quality and presentation. Great small wine list. Knockout pastry chef too - what a top team. The trains rumbling overhead and being very much on the market floor made this even more special. And it’s remarkable value for the quality.

Extremely impressive for the price and a beautiful and atmospheric setting that didn’t feel overly stuffy or formal. A perfect lunch date. Being pregnant they also went out of their way to make sure all was safe and they made me feel very well looked after :) massive thank you to the whole team!

    Wonderful tasting menu - every course tasty, brimming with seasonal fresh products and beautifully presented. We loved the detailed explanations from the chefs who came to the table themselves — clearly passionate about what they do and super skilled. Michelin worthy for sure. Jesus the sommelier kept us both entertained by his extensive wine knowledge and funny anecdotes and antics. A character for sure. We were well looked after for our 10th wedding anniversary meal. Ambiance was lovely in the Turnips food stall, views of fresh produce with fairy lights above — if a bit noisy with train noises above and loud music. We didn’t mind this at all though — loved our experience overall, food and service — and would recommend it to friends and family — and return ourselves.

    Really recommend trying. We went for my wife's birthday and we had a great time. The food is great value and paired with two different wine menus which were alright but didn't do much for me in the way of enhancing the dishes. That said was pleased to try the nytimber blanc de blanc 2013 & the red on the prestige selection was very good. Love the courgette subtle pickling and the creamy haddock was exceptional. Desserts were Nicly balanced from what I remember. Would like to go back at some point.

    We can't rate our experience highly enough .The chef is a genius We had the vegetarian experience tasting menu. Each course displayed perfect presentation and gave us a range of tastes and textures which delighted and "wowed" us in equal measure. The depth of the sauces, freshness of the ingredients, surprise additions - all came together in every mouthful. The courses were well balanced and made this a journey-not just a menu. We also enjoyed meeting the chef who explained many of the courses to us. The service was also excellent ; from our first greeting when we arrived (thank you Jesus) to Denise who ensured we had just the right amount of attention for our drinks. We never had to wait too long, nor did we feel intruded upon. Everyone (including the person washing the glasses etc) worked well together as a team creating a very relaxed, friendly and professional atmosphere . We were impressed with their knowledge of the menu when we asked questions, and their enthusiasm -even when they were busy. The venue adds to the orginality and, in these times of covid19, assures a well ventilated environment. We have eaten in a range of fine dining restaurants and this is one of the best we have been to in a while - surely Tomas and his team are due a Michelin star soon ?
