    So, I have given this place 10/10 for one reason and one reason only… Manuela. This woman made the experience 10 times better than expected. So I was starving before I even walked in and straight away the security tried it on me but I had reservation so we were cool. Then we went up some Willy Wonka elevator and went straight to the top (so crazy) and Manuela came through - everything was perfect! The DJ was playing some bangers, had to download one two tunes by the end of the night and the bartender was real cool vibing having jokes - moral of the story the staff was epic! And the food was very nice and filling! 10:10 recommend - there was no car park but there was free street parking after 6 and free all day on Sunday! Check this place out - wavy - I didn’t even get started on the view … this view is crazy! And they had a nice smoking area balcony type thing - very nice - cannot complain at all, big up everyone there

    The food was not nice and the portions were tiny. The music was quite loud and the food was disappointing. The restaurant was cute and the mocktails were nice, however they weren’t on the menu and she didn’t tell us the price - it was £12 for a small cup. Overall, it was very expensive meal but I ended up eating leftovers once I got home.

    They make you book a table, come all the way down to their restaurant, settle down, order your food THEN the VERY unpleasant and unkind manager comes and lets you know that “we have a minimum spend of £50 pp but for you I’ll make it £35”. You should make it CLEAR when booking online or on the phone that you have a minimum spend not when the customer HAS ALREADY ORDERED! Very unprofessional.

    Table next to DJ, we didn't know it was a restaurant with DJ! Freezing when people opened door to go outside. Should have closed outside area. Food was good but sadly they were clearly understaffed. Went to pay with Amex. Not one machine in the whole hotel would accept it so we left without paying !

    My wife and I went for diner last night and this was an unforgettable experience.We was running 25 minutes late so spoke to who we think is the manager whom told us this will be taken from our slot time? And will not be there for the full time .We should have seen this as a red flag.We had booked the terrace for a view.This was nice though we had picked the worst day as it was very cold .We cannot blame the restaurant for this.We have travelled the world and have visited many hotels,restaurants and higher scale and also lower scaled locations.Though this has to be the most horrendous service I have received in my life.We sat outside out of choice which we cannot point at the restaurant for. We stayed around 2.5 hours to not ruin the night .I even talked to the staff members politely and with warmth and tried talking with them to maybe make them feel more comfortable. It was shocking .The waiter came across as if he did not want to work there.The manager came over twice smiled and had no character or absolutely 0 customer service skills.Until the end we had been sat outside regardless of atleast 5 empty untouched tables indoors.Food portions were small though I can understand you are paying for the location,brand and views.The ignorance was more upsetting than anything . It is certainly a place we will not be forgetting easily for all the wrong reasons.Just to mention I have never in my life given a review on any website especially a negative review.we come from a background of businesses which is based on sales and customer focus.We did not expect 5* treatment.Simple humanity and a smile goes a very long way. Without sounding rude the staff on the night need extensive training on dealing with customers.Shocking behaviour. It was my birthday weekend . Which me and a friend had also decided to attend for shisha later in the week. The point of this review is more so for the mezemiso management dealing with inexperienced staff.

    Day before my birthday was informed that the service has been running slow especially for larger groups (already putting a bad taste in my mouth). When I turned up to my table there were 3 strangers sitting with my guests which I found odd, this was soon rectified once I mentioned it. The restaurant was heavily understaffed and there was only one waiter (the manager) looking after 11 of us which was appalling as this delayed the service and put a lot of pressure on the manager. The drinks took 20mins to come out and most drinks didn’t even end up coming, food was cold and some guests finished their food as I was waiting for mine. Friends asked for a desert for me so they can sing me a happy birthday and was told no because they need to tidy up. Food was okay but the 2 lamb cutlets that are given is beyond a joke couldn’t believe how small they were too. The atmosphere was amazing with nice views though.

    Staff were very friendly and professional but they did not see my request for a table with a nice view and instead put us on a table with no views at all which was disappointing because why have a special requests section if you aren’t going to take note of it? I then queried this and they moved us to a much better table. Overall the value was poor. Main course was £35 for lamb chops but it was two tiny lamb chops- the size of a starter and did not fill us up at all. Definitely not worth it at all. Sushi was nice however. Quite a small but pretty restaurant with not much room to walk around. The sofa type seats are a bit far from the table that you have to sit on the edge of your seat to reach the table (you can’t move the seats or table).

    The restaurant and views were beautiful. The starters were good but the mains were disappointing. The portion size for the mains were way too small, the asparagus was so over cooked it disintegrated and £7 for 3 pieces of asparagus is unacceptable. The cocktail menu was largely unavailable. We ordered shisha recommended by the server, this was horrible so we chose a flavour and this was also terrible. The service was hit and miss, it was slow at times but the service we did receive was great.

    The menu was a bit vague in regard to the fact you could order from both the meze and miso sides, so was confused about what sides were available but overall the selection of miso starters were excellent. The portion size of the main was a little disappointing but would recommend as a cute date night experience

    My friend and I were looking for a nice chill afternoon and found this restaurant online. We had a really lovely Time. I rated 3/5 stars for Value as the prices at Mezemiso were a little high compared to other places in the city. Having said that, Imad, our waiter, was incredibly friendly and looked after us during our entire visit. He went above and beyond our expectations, bringing us blankets, making sure we had enough heating, our glasses were never empty and our stomachs were full. We even shared many laughs and jokes with him which made the experience that much better! Thank you Imad!

    Nice restaurant but nothing special. We were around the area. Not many restaurant selection around the area. Lebanese and Japanese food. I wouldn't recommend it as it didn't stick out. Nothing wrong or bad about the restaurant. But there are so many restaurants that are better in the city.

    The food is good but not worth ££££. The shisha is expensive and poor in quality. I got blue mist and that flavour normally lasts for a long time but it died after 30 minutes which isn’t worth £50! The service was good but not much attention for those sitting outside, all the staff were inside. So you would have to go inside to get their attention. I wouldn’t recommend this place and wouldn’t go back again. We got a complimentary birthday cake which was lovely and tasted yummy, which is part of the afternoon tea. So maybe the afternoon tea experience might be good their. Shisha I wouldn’t recommend Sushi is nice but had better for cheaper I went between 3pm to 6pm Saturday and there was no one there so no atmosphere which made it a bit boring

    Great experience at Mezemiso. The food was great and the service was good although slow at some times. Our waiter was very helpful and recommended a number of dishes. We chose the Japanese menu (following our waiters selection). The cocktails were excellent, particularly the signature cocktails. And lastly, the views of the Thames were great. Luckily for us there was a fireworks display across the river which we had a perfect view of. Overall a great dining experience and I’d recommend when treating that special someone
