My partner’s had the lamb chops and they were probably the best lamb chops he ever had at a restaurant. Very good. The mains come with no sides , that didn’t really bother us ( yes they are very pricey considering the dish doesn’t come with a side but hey, it’s Mayfair!) as it was evening and we wanted to have something light, but we couldn’t because we were told twice by two different waitresses that we better order sides because the portions are small-even though I wouldn’t consider that lamb chops a small portion and for my partner was enough. When the second waitress told me about it, I really felt pressured So I ordered a side ( which my partner barely touched it cuz we had starters as well) just to get rid of her. They made me a surprise and offered me a complementary small dessert as it was my bday, which it was very nice of them. Overall, tasty food but small portions and not too many options on the menu. Good selection of wines.

My first experience here a few years back wasnt great. I went recently and I have to say it was a whole lot better. Still pricey but it is Mayfair . The vibe was good . We were sat in a corner which had its pros and cons: we could talk as it was away from the crowd but it did feel like we were stuck in the back corner behind a pillar so didn’t feel like we were part of the restaurant. I would recommend just avoid that back table :)

First and last time in this place! Started with the security guy blocking the stairs and didn’t bother to move or say hello back, SO RUDE! I mean he’s a big guy how am I suppose to go through the entrance and down the stairs if he’s taking 3/4 of the space! The lady in the Cloakroom is the only Friendly and professional staff. Then, we sat on our table and got the menus and after around 5 minutes or so a waiter grabbed the menus from our hands then said sorry and took them away and started cleaning the table and another waiter came and set the table then they gave us the menu back. Already at that point, we just had enough and we decided to go anywhere else where staff are much more professional and friendly.

I love coming to MNKY House, and I was excited for our dining experience on Friday. I had booked a week in advance and mentioned that it was for 5 people. I had arrived early, and noticed that it was a table of 4 with an extra plating in between two. I mentioned to the hostess that escorted me to the table that it’s a table for 5 not 4, and she shrugged her shoulder and said that this is all we had and walked off. Once my friends arrived of course it was a tight squeeze, it was so uncomfortable that one of my friends LEFT in order to let the rest of us enjoy our night. This was so disappointing, I’ve never experienced such disregard to seating arrangements in any of the restaurants I’ve been. On the other hand, as usual the food was great, our waiter was absolutely amazing and atmosphere was incredible. Nevertheless, the embarrassment I faced with my friend having to leave due to seating; I may have to look for a new favourite place to dine.

Lovely atmosphere, lively and bubbly! The service wasn’t great, we made a reservation but still had to wait 15 mins to be seated. Once we were finally seated we realised the table was dirty, and then we had to move to another table. The food tasted undercooked and bland. I’m not sure whether this is because we had a late booking and they wanted to get out of there! Not impressed considering we’ve been here before.

The restaurant itself is lovely with a very relaxing atmosphere. The food is unreal I would recommend the beef tenderloin, you definitely pay for what you get. Such good quality food.
The down sides are: the potatoes came out after the rest of our food was served and I had to ask for them as they had not arrived, they were hard and over cooked. By the time they came out the broccoli was cold.
The service isn’t up to standard for the amount of money they charge for the service charge at 13.5%. We had to request our coats be put into the cloak room And these were not returned to us we were told to where to get them ourselves, we was not asked if we wanted another drink throughout our meal.
When asking to take the service charge off the bill in order to decide how much I wanted to give as a tip, a ‘manager’ came over and in my opinion was quite pushy and some what aggressive when asking if there was a problem with the service or the food and why I did not want to pay the service charge.
The waiter then stated ‘that’s how much is added to bills for service charge when eating in restaurants in London’. Which I am fully aware of as I’ve grown up eating in restaurants in London.
In my opinion the food is good, but don’t expect too much of the customer service. If you want a good customer service go elsewhere, as there is plenty of other restaurants in London with the same standard food and better customer service.

I arrived 10 minutes late, they kept me waiting for a table for more than 25 minutes they gave me a bad table after telling me that “ the table is worth the wait” i was pretty upset and asked them to change the table. Finally they gave me a nice table and then everything was great afterwards.

Experience was amazing so the food and the waiter was very friendly.. however,until the waiter asked if we woukd like to add his tip , when we didnt his attitude totally changed with us in the same second and looked upset. So i went out with bad impression from the restaurant! Is giving a tip a MUST in Mnky restaurant? Or we will be treated badly ?

The waiting staff were rude and slow, got the bill wrong and also never explained at the beginning that they would need the table back within an hour and a half of sitting down. The set menu came with no option to order side dishes or had sides served with them so when you order the salmon fillet for example you literally just get a salmon fillet!

Lovely restaurant and ambience, reception still sat us despite the rest of my party being extremely late. However one of the waiters we had was very off, not impressed with the service. Food was just okay extremely over priced for what it is better or going to nobu/novikov/ hakkasan or sexy fish. The mirror bit where I took my pics was the highlight of my night. A mocktail is £25 LOL.

Restaurant was lovely... didnt appreciate having a bill thrown on our table after 1.5hrs and told we were not allowed dessert because we wont eat it quick enough! I understand the 2 hour table rule but there is a way to do it that isnt rude! It ruined the evening!

Great service, and atmosphere but food a real let down nothing special for the money it costs... Same cost as Michelin restaurants I go to and yet the food needs improvement.

The main course... Poussin and lamb chops needed a sauce or some seasoning...

Shame as with good food this could have become a regular ..
