"A tremendous addition to the Wimbledon food scene! It's not too long ago that Five Guys opened but this place trumps it by a mile. The burgers are definitely of a higher quality and the price is comparable if not slightly cheaper. The concept is a little quirky but it works and I can definitely see this local enterprise going places in a fairly short space of time. The drinks menu is also exciting and all in all I think this is an absolute winner. Staff are lovely, the addition of kitchen roll to each table is spot on and generally it's a nice place to eat lunch. Keep up the good work, I'm sure there'll be more than 2 of these around London in the near future."

"It's not bad but it's way over priced. The sad demise of the far cheaper and, arguably better, chippie on Berwick Street has left this as Soho's only real chip shop option. To me Fish and Chips is a simple concept and I don't really 'get' the idea of trying to take it up market. All that results is something that is over-priced and no better than a traditional and cheaper alternative. I may well go back as there are few other options but the Golden Union could do a lot more to impress customers such as myself"

"Went for a Saturday evening meal after a film at nearby Electric Shoreditch... but what should have been a fun evening was disappointing. The venue is nice enough, a large bar with an eating area cordonned off, although the noise level from the rammed bar area made conversation impossible if you were on the bar side of the restaurant. Foodwise, a burger was fine; the steak however was grim - tough, overcooked and with a peculiar taste. The waiter remarked that it was untouched but after offering an alternative (by now it's 11pm, we don't want to start reordering mains) there was no apology, suggestion of refund etc. Almost as if he wasn't surprised. Never previously had a bad Soho House experience but will be more careful in future. Won't be going back."

"Can do better - the location is good - we arrived by walking on the millennium footbridge from Tate Modern. The view is nice, although not as spectacular as the one from the south bank and so is the ambience. Overall the food was quite good, but choice was somewhat limited and you need to select (smallish) side dishes to balance and complete the experience. The service was well paced and fairly friendly, which is reflected automatically in the bill! However, the side dish of chips was on the firm and dry side and the expected discount through the Taste Card have not fully materialised, so bring your solicitor with you, to work out the T & C..."

"We had booked a table for 4pm on Sunday afternoon and turned up early at 2:40pm, they happily accommodated us with quibble. Service was friendly with genuine smiles. Our dishes (one chicken, another sea bass) were both interesting and tasty, though there were hints of my chicken being over chargrilled. My Eton Mess was refreshing and my companion's cheese board very enticing. Atmosphere was buzzy and traditional in a positive way, about 2.5 though I've rated 3. Good selection of wine."

"Finally made it to this gaff. Unfortunately the waiter was an uptight queen who seemed to do his best to tell off his customers and keep them waiting. When ordering he seemed pushy and sulky if we under-ordered (ie. one glass of wine not 2). After being given the delights of a foul tempered waiter, the food was terrible. we came for pudding (which wasn't welcomed, with the waiter annoyed at having to indicate which were polenta based.) was given a glass of incredibly flat cheap tasting prosecco masquerading as a fizzy muscat which it most certainly was not. We ordered 2 puddings, both came with cream squirted out of a tin can. Both tasted revolting. The only plus was the fruit used in both didn't come from a tin can. Chocolate moose made of polenta is a real no no - don't go there. All in all a disappointing, unsophisticated and badly turned out gimmick of an experience best suited to 20 somethings munching after drinks."

"The old chef has now left and is replaced with the run of the mill Japanese chefs. Gone are the days of reverence for the integrity of the ingredient and the quiet hush of passionate chefs working with dignity. Now you get orders barked and a lot of noise at the sushi counter where they are just churning out these average sushi where the fish is sliced rather thinly. I last dined there on June 8th 2015 and mourn the "loss" of what used to be my Favourite restaurant in London."

"A great local family run Greek taverna, food is always good and reliable (much improved over the last 2 years), service friendly. The setting is a bit bland, inherited from previous owners and in keeping with Cyprus teverna style, but not too bad."

BarrafinaWe’ve teamed up with the good people of Twizoo to announce the top 5 trending restaurants on Twitter each week in London. Twizoo is an app that gives restaurant recommendations based on what people are saying on Twitter, and analyses over 50,000 incoming tweets per week to determine which restaurants are attracting the most buzz.

You’ve probably noticed on Twitter on the left hand side of your ‘Home’ page there’s a ‘Trends’ list. Twizoo has built the same thing, but solely for London restaurants. Our number crunching detects the rate of change of influential mentions on Twitter. For example, ‘Christmas’ is currently trending on Twitter, which means there’s been a spike of mentioning Christmas now compared with the rest of the year.

Applying this to Twizoo’s algorithms: if X restaurant usually gets on average 10 tweets per week, but this week it gets 32 tweets… that’s a pretty big change, so it’s a good indicator something notable is going on. The algorithm notes restaurants that have the highest rate of change and ranks them based on which places’ tweets are the most positive collectively and then it takes the top of those based on how influential the individuals are who tweeted. Simple see?
