Harden's says

In Hackney's Broadway Market, a Scandinavian-influenced venture from a couple (Holly Spencer & Charlie Sims) who have both worked in Copenhagen. There's a focus on natural and low-intervention wines, while the dairy cow tartare/croque monsieur combo is an early hit dish.

Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

What the Newspaper Critics are saying

The Times

Charlotte Ivers ventured for brunch to this Scandi-inspired venue off Broadway Market in Hackney, which she found to be “everything you think Sune is going to be… High ceilings, exposed fittings, artfully distressed wooden floor,” and a clientele who “all look as if they used to take drugs, but are now more focused on getting little Toby into a nursery where they teach Chinese and baby yoga”.

Ouch! Was this going to get nasty? But no, Charlotte had nothing but praise for Sune’s ugly food and natural wines – the latter “something that sends m’learned colleague on the daily paper [ie Giles Coren, absent this week presumably on half-term duty] into fits of despair”. 

Her pick of the small plates was a croque monsieur spread with beef tartare, apparently a favourite of the chef to soak up a few beers after a long shift. “It’s the sort of stodgy, cloggy mess you’d fall upon after a drink or three, or even more so the morning after. It tastes wonderful, despite looking as if someone could have dropped it on the way to the table.”

In conclusion: “This is undoubtedly one of the trendiest places in London, but you don’t see its stuff on Instagram. This is taste-first food.”
