A great location for a working lunch. Always something on the menu that appeals. Very friendly and efficient service and good atmosphere.

I am a member and member of staff. I have used it before for coffee, but this is the first occasion I have used it to host guests for lunch. The ambiance and service was excellent. In the event, I had to reduce the booking from 3 to 2 which did not cause any difficulty. We had what I would call a snack lunch of one course - I personally found the spare ribs delicious.

Despite fish being on the menu, starter and main. None available. The wine chosen not in stock. But the house was ok The staff always great, no reflection on their capabilities but the sevice ran slow when the office / members hit the servery Food was lovely and reasonable in price My guests enjoyed the lunch.

I have been an occasional but loyal user of the Faraday kitchen. I like the layout, the 'ambiance', and the quality of service. In recent visits I observe that the prices are no longer as competitive, the portions 'shrinking', and the variety on offer less imaginative than it used to be. I sincerely hope that this is a temporary set back because I believe that this facility is an excellent addition to the many services to its Members that the IET offer, and a great expression of the excellence of its brand. This does not in any way reflect on the very good service offered by the staff.

Excellent venue for a business lunch. Service top notch and food is good quality with sensibly modest portions. Highly recommended.

My first visit, with teenager family, to the IET HQ since the major refurbishment and I was most impressed - from the swanky lobby, and updated facilities to the business lounge and 'kitchen' cafe. The new format is a breath of fresh-air for such an august building. The afternoon tea was a delightful treat in smart setting with an impressive view of the river and South Bank. Sandwiches were tasty and cakes lovely and light. Service was excellent and refilled hot drinks as needed. Make sure you book ahead as they do get busy with 'working' lunches and meetings. Enjoy
