Le Piaf 40 Wimbledon Hill Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 7PA (Map)

Possibly the worst restaurant in London. Went for lunch on Saturday afternoon. The place was half full, not busy. Seated promptly and then waited for 10 minutes to order. Add another 10 minutes for... More Atmosphere: Value: Quality:

“Is there anywhere in Earls Court gay any more, to think of the wonderful gay haunts in this part of london and now gone, The Coleherne, The Redcliffe, Bromptons.... It really is too sad. Poor little Balans on its own.”

Hi Sushi, Soho (Restaurant)
“Went for the buffet and found the quality to be awful. The fried food was all tasteless and designed solely to fill you up so that you can't eat as much sushi. The sushi was the worst I have ever had, almost completely salmon based and with all the rolls containing more rice then any others I have had. Even the seaweed wrapping was chewy. The atmosphere downstairs is poor, nothing like it looks in the photos. You are sandwiched between the kitchen and what appears to be the bin area. The only plus side of this place is the huge amount of food you are given. Nearly all of it went to waste however. The worst sushi restaurant I have even been to. Avoid!”

Carpenter's Arms, Hammersmith (Bar)
“A really pleasant local pub with a great courtyard - perfect for sunny day lunches. The short and punchy menu does veer towards game - steak and chips with bernaise is venison rather than beef for example. Not a child friendly menu and not for fussy eaters or vegetarians - only one veggie option (mushroom and dandelion risotto- so if you are a vegetarian with you have a mushroom allergy, or a vegan you'll be hungry!) That said, the cooking is well executed and the surrounds are extremely nice. A great find if you live near but probably not worth a special journey.”

“The food was of a decent standard and the atmosphere was calm and the walls pretty. However, upon my last visit, I noticed the restaurant were keen to serve what looked like underage teens alcohol downstairs. I was under the impression the youngsters had been allowed to have a party downstairs. Also, I noticed an odd sour odour downstairs but thats another tale. Hmm The food was also pricey. Frankly, I would have been better off in KFC. That is all.”

Beach Blanket Babylon, Shoreditch (Bar / Restaurant)
“H&M chic, over styled décor and ok food describes this venue best. It certainly isn’t the buzz that has been made of this new Shoreditch ’fashion’ venue. Under staffed and poorly planned menus led to a disappointing evening which was suppose to be ‘fabulous’ Even the manager with his charm couldn’t fix a failing combination of dim witted staff, poor kitchen preparation and OK food. No amount of charm could have save this train wreck.”

“I agree with the other reviews, this used to be a fun bar for a cocktail and great service. Unfortunately it's become a bit too successful and so the good service and drinks that made it great have been replaced by passive-aggressive bar staff who'd rather dick around and laugh at you than serve you. The new staff have lost the charm and enjoy making you feel like an outsider. Avoid at all costs, unless you enjoy being insulted.”

“The food was very bland and overpriced. The fact that there were very few diners and therefore very little atmosphere in the place didn't help either. For modern asian food, i'll be sticking to restaurants in London.”

Satay Bar, Brixton (Bar / Restaurant)
“Last night my partner and 2 friends went there for the first time in 8 years. Before we even entered, my partner was asked by the burly bouncer (who himself had a hat on) to remove his cap, only to walk in and see three other people inside with their caps on! The waiter then proceeded to show us to a table for 2 when there were 4 of us. After waiting 20 mins to order, we waited another 20 mins for our drinks (which weren't even cocktails.) The starters arrived and my partner and I had ordered a Satay platter to share. The squid was not cooked, and the lamb was so tough it looked (and tasted) like it had been cooked many night's before and reheated. The prawn satay was one tiny prawn holding on for dear life to the satay stick, also bizarrely there was no peanut sauce in sight. For the main course the four of us shared a very chewy 'Lazy Beef', a Snapper that was covered in onions and peppers with no taste whatsoever, a Lamb Massaman which was really oily and tasteless and a Thai papaya salad which consisted of shredded lettuce, carrots, 3 beans and a sprinkling of papaya drowned in sweet chilli sauce. I had to ask for extra limes and fish sauce as it was so sickly sweet. The fish sauce finally arrived after 2 waiters telling me that the kitchen did not have it(!). As everyone knows fish sauce is a staple ingredient in Thai/Malaysian food. Overall we were all extremely disappointed, especially when the bill included service charge, and the waitress had spilt the fish ”

“I love this place, really nice atmosphere and it is different from everywhere else in ealing...Quite interesting cocktail list, usually in ealing you are given the choice of sex on the beach or blue lagoon...eugh!:( The Lodge has a really nice cocktail with Raspberries and Chilli in it, sounds weird I know but trust me it is amazing! Definitely a good place to go, to escape the boring chain pubs of the area!”

The Plough, Barnes & Sheen (Bar / Restaurant / Hotel)
“I agree totally with the last review. Since the Plough has been done up, it's atmosphere-less and the management made a major mistake not correcting the problem soon enough. It has lost huge local custom. Here's a 'Strong' hint. Fire your french chef or get a spine and put on what locals want. Add some TV's for sport to get the punters back in and some background music and take full advantage of the status of cosy country pub you once had when the pub was packed every night!! It may be a posh area, but surely you know us posh folk are scrooges!! As an aside, I still drink here as it's about a foot from my house!!”

“I would like to thank the staff at Dirty Martini for looking after me and my friends, we were celebrating my birthday. No complaints from any of us, will definitely be going again. Cocktail menu is amazing. Was slightly disappointed the DJ would not take any requests, but that was a small thing, on the whole a very nice experience!”

“Drop in this bar for a pint or two, especially over the Summer, usually afternoons ar early evenings. The garden is good, gets a fair bit of sun, and has some plants greenery around (but could do more with it!). Inside it can be a bit dark, but the sofas are comfy. Bar staff are very cheerful and helpful (at the time of writing they were Ibby, Natalie, Barbara and Joe) and the range of beers good (Hoegarden and Leffe being my faves). They're trying to bring in a lot of people earlier in the week by having Mojita Mondays and double cocktail Tuesdays etc, and I hope they succeed. Food is ok, but the fave for food seems to be the nearby White Hart. All in all, probably the best pub to chill in the Palace, and if you see me sitting by the bar there come up and say hi!”

“I work in Corporate Travel in the City of London for one of the largest Japanese banks around and have been to restaurants, good and bad, posh and quirky, all over the world. Please do NOT do this restaurant any favours by lining their pockets with your hard-earned money. The food is absolutely terrible, the waiters completely indifferent. I questioned the bill as it included some drinks we had not had. I was then subjected to a barrage of abuse.”

The Grove Bar & Restaurant, Hammersmith (Bar / Restaurant)
“One would be surprised how few good eateries there are Hammersmith. There a lot of offers of sort "meal for two £5.99" and similar. What you get is some sort of stale tortilla toped with a sour cream, guacamole and salsa dip. If you want a decent meal and a decent drink you need to stroll up to Hammersmith Grove where there are a few decent eateries. One of those, in my opinion the best of the lot, is The Grove Bar & Restaurant as they called it. The Grove is in fact typical gastro pub albeit quality one. The food there is always fresh and simply delicious. I particularly like the fact that they change menus twice daily so every time I go for a meal I feel as if I am going to try a different restaurant and yet everybody knows me. Apart from their tender, organic Argentinean steak there is always number of fresh fish dishes on the menu and quite a few have been revelation for me. I also adore their organic house wines. Those are about £12 but the trouble is one is never enough for me and my partner. Staff and regulars are very friendly and I consider the Grove to be my second home. In fact I feel better there since at home I have been hounded lately by ever worsening news about credit crunch and deteriorating economy. Viva the Grove.”

“We had lunch at Flava's today (took our 17 month old). It was fairly quiet & felt nice & spacious; a good place for the baby - he wanted a nose around & didn't get in peoples' way! The food was fine and service excellent; our waiter was Phil. We'll definitely be going back. Apparently there's a family fun day next weekend. Shame most of the staff knew nothing about it / there's no advertising.”
