Inspired by the 1994 smash-hit film Forrest Gump, Bubba Gump serves up a menu devoted to shrimp. This favourite American restaurant group brings its first site to the UK, which sits amidst the bustle of Piccadilly Circus.
Alongside the super-fresh, sustainably-sourced shrimp dishes, the Bubba Gump menu is filled with home-cooked Alabama-style main courses. Favourites include ‘dumb luck’ coconut shrimp with Cajun marmalade, fries and coleslaw, or mama’s southern-fried chicken with bourbon gravy. Extravagant yet homely desserts include key lime pie or the ‘best of the best’ sampler for a little taste of everything, while tropical-style cocktails are served in souvenir glasses.
The colourful dining room features rustic, seafood shack-style décor, and the walls are plastered with memorabilia from the film. Bubba Gump in London also serves a special under-10s menu, filled with Forrest Gump-themed main courses, and build-your-own sundaes.
Found within London’s bustling Trocadero Bubba Gump restaurant in Piccadilly Circus sits directly next door to the tube station.

We were sat by a little room where the staff would hang and talk which was a little annoying as every time I would look up there would be someone there watching me eat. My sister was a little frustrated with the noise coming from behind her. Perhaps getting a door? Or curtain to block that room out. I could see everything they were doing in there and doesn't look great watching them dry cups for example.
Favourite dish was by far the Mac n Cheese starter.
The main was okay but there wasn't anything with a buttery sauce with prawns and chips.. the meals were either with mash or rice.
The lemon up was sweet but very sour too.. I couldn't drink it unfortunately.. it had too much lemon flavour and not enough watermelon flavour.
Our host Gustavo was really nice, he was very helpful and answered all our questions.
The desert was great but after eating so much food we couldn't finish it (although we wanted to).
Have you ever thought about adding coleslaw as a side option? It would go great with the food.
All in all, a great experience.. lovely food.

Food was really poor and dry, drinks had bits floating in it, salad had some black mould on it, the rest of the food was very bland. The fish was a disappointment seeing as it is a shrimp/fish restaurant.
Also, the service was odd, we had our starters arrive before drinks, the drinks then went on to be dirty as I earlier mentioned, then before we'd finished our starters, the main meals were at the table and we hadn't been asked if we were ready for the next course.
I ate what I could, only because I'd already paid for it as part of an experience day.
Very let down, because the place itself looks good, but unfortunately the food and service just didn't meet any expectations.

Arrived at bubba Gump shrimp, staff seem to be nice although the food was terrible, for the price of the food u got very small portions and it tastes extremely fishy and it tasted like it wasn't fresh. We sat down at 7oclock and was finished by 7:20 if you want a quick bite to eat then it being that fast is ok but I feel as though they rushed the food and drink service. I felt disappointed with the service as I was looking forward to dinning there as being a forest Gump fan. Would Not recommend here to eat.

We have visited before but we still had a lovely meal. Both the food and service were excellent.

Wonderful food, great portion sizes, fantastic atmosphere, and the service was sublime. The red and blue signs was a great way to save the awkwardness of calling a waiter/waitress over everytime you need something.

Ordered our drinks and meal but the waiter had forgotten about our drinks so we had to wait a while at least 10 minutes. Meal was nice.(ordered the Lt surf and turf and the All American burger) Atmosphere was good. Everything was okay until it came to paying and the waiter assumed he would be having another tip onto of the service charge, when I took the cash back and asked to pay on card, he didn't seem best pleased. Was not happy with this as I thought it was very rude to assume you would be given a tip, on top of a service charge!

Restaurant lovely. Food lovely (bit too much shrimp for me!) but very expensive for what it is. It is a very special occasion place for me.
