Excellent food, this is not the first time we visited Assado, and the standard is still very high. Food is delicious.

    Inattentive waiting staff, the chefs tasting platter for a starter was measly and the currys were fairly small portions. Won't be back in a hurry

  • ((*** 2 December 2016 by Susan Wall from Waterloo

    Very disappointing, lacked atmosphere, lights too bright and so over priced and not good value for money. It's part of the 'Hampton by Hilton' hotel. Definitely won't be back.

  • (((** 22 November 2016 by Susan Bottwood from London

    Lovely looking space - but disappointed with the food - especially for the price. Lacked in flavour and finesse. Not sure where I heard about this restaurant (Masterchef?) but I had expectations which were too high.

    Really enjoyed the meal, Spicy but not over the top.

    The service was excellent and so was the food. 3 of us had the delicious vegetarian main dish and 1 had a steak which she said was very good.

  • (((** 10 November 2016 by Johnny Fox from London

    The food is delicious - interesting, unusual, fragrant rather than too heavily spiced, and came (eventually) both hot and fresh-tasting. But the service is awful - disinterested, slow and mechanical, took us an hour and a half to get two courses when only four tables were occupied in the restaurant.

  • ((((( 1 November 2016 by Trudie Gilbert from Peterborough

    Very nice restaurant, friendly staff and good menu choices

  • (((** 22 October 2016 by Frances Mayhew from London Borough of Wandsworth

    Goodfood, nice service. Place completely deserted so strange atmosphere but nice not as good as cafe spice

  • ((((* 14 October 2016 by Sonal Patel from Se1

    Great staff, good atmosphere, good food. Although I wanted to order the cheese chilli nan I was convinced not to. I wish I had still ordered it as the substitute chilli garlic nan was very dry and I did not enjoy it with my curry.
