“What could be nicer than sitting on the 38th floor of the Shard with fantastic views of London”, while lingering over a “lovely unrushed afternoon tea” or – later in the day when the mood is “very romantic” – sampling its “fresh Asian-inspired dishes”. Not a huge volume of feedback, but ratings are better this year as it escaped the customary complaints for overpricing.

“Fantastic views” are the universally acknowledged highpoint of a visit to this swish Asian / British restaurant on the Shard’s 35th floor. It is most often recommended for its “great twist on a traditional afternoon tea” (including an “exceptional vegan tea”) – for more substantial meals, it is too often “not worth the price you pay for uninspiring dishes”.

Incredible vistas are a given from the 35th floor of the Shard and this all-day restaurant and lounge doesn’t disappoint with a 360° panorama of the capital. It perennially attracts some criticism for being overpriced, but significant criticism was absent this year and most aspects of the experience are rated good to outstanding. The menu hedges its bets – although predominantly focused on ‘time-honoured Asian cuisine’, there is also a section devoted to ‘classic British gastronomy’ (plus options for breakfast and afternoon tea).

“The view’s the thing” at this 35th-floor all-day restaurant and lounge in The Shard, with 360-degree vistas over London and the Home Counties – “including from the loos!”. Some reporters also rate the “well-presented and thoughtful menu”, which they say contributes to “a fantastic experience”. Sceptics, though, reckon the “food is so-so, service patronising, the bill eye-watering: strictly for well-heeled tourists!”.

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).
