I took my partner to Helix for a birthday lunch and we were not disappointed. The lunch menu was well presented and delicious. The staff were professional and attentive.
The views were great too :)
Thank you for making it a meal to remember!

Perched above Helix on level 40 is Iris bar, offering 360° views an extensive cocktail menu as unique as the setting. As well as cocktails which pay homage to the city below, an exquisite selection of champagne and English sparkling wine is also served.

    Great food and service but the location of the restaurant is stunning. An unforgettable experience.

    I recently made a reservation for my two daughter's and their friend as they were only in London for a week - they absolutely loved the food, ambiance, the service and, of course, the view. They were impressed with how tasty and creative the innovative cuisine was and how fresh ingredients are sourced locally. A true 'bucket-list' experience - very memorable - the view (everyone has a 'window seat') looked like they were at the centre of the universe.

    A treat for a friend's 'big' birthday...it didn't disappoint!

    The furniture may look basic but it's comfortable. The views are stunning. I'd mentioned the celebration when booking and luckily they were able to arrange a window table.

    Staff were attentive but didn't intrude, helpful and friendly. We were one vegetarian and one gluten free diner and the restaurant were great at offering advice and alternative options.

    Favourite dishes:. the smoked salmon on seeded bread and the cheesecake.

    It was so lovely. Excellent location. Staff were so nice. Made my mum’s 50th birthday really special.

    The staff were really great, the tasting menu we had was fantastic in every way, the views were brilliant, I don't know why the restaurant doesn't have a Michelin star !!

  • ((((( 1 September 2018 by Maria from London, UK

    The view is phenomenal! The restaurant was fabulous and the service friendly and efficient but not overbearing. It was expensive even with the offer but worth every penny. My only gripe is the deconstructed cheesecake was a little small because it tasted so great I wanted more of it! We went up to the bar after dinner for drinks and had the most amazing cocktail (The Kew Garden) and the 360 degree view just finished it off perfectly. Would definitely recommend and will go again.
