Friends were happy with the place and was surprised we have our own place booked for privacy and convenience since the weather is unpredictable

THE best dining experience. Great to meet the chefs and felt like a very personal touch. We ordered one of everything and nothing disappointed. Clean plates all around. Keep up the good work.

Great service! Was slightly disappointed as asked a member of staff size of side salad & he said was the size of a saucer(roughly) when it came out it was fairly big! Great portion size but had ordered 2 so felt I'd wasted food& money as did not need it all at £6 a side salad. Otherwise lovely experience & the den was perfect!

Really great little feature in the John Lewis Oxford Street store! Loved the theme and the staff provided a great service throughout the night. One piece of feedback would be that John Lewis needs to put better signs in the store about how to get to the roof top. This was the second time going there and I’ve gotten very lost both times! Apart from this small issue the actual evening was really fun and would definitely recommend.

We book the flower den but, unfortunately, we left straight away as the den was VERY small for seven people, couldn't fit in and very warm. Even the philipino food menu was awful, couldn't be bothered spending money for that

All good.... except.... When we walked in (12pm) the music was so bad and loud for the first 10 min. It felt like we were at some strange Swedish cult which is getting ready for a barn dance before slaughtering a pig !!! ...food was fab though !

I was unable to cancel my booking - there was no phone number or email address to contact. I called the generic John Lewis number and apparently they left a message for the rooftop bar but I received no confirmation.

The food at Bong Bongs was nice but what happened to the noodles option that I had seen? I'd have liked a chicken main meal option too. But it was a good experience, the restaurant staff were polite and welcoming so I'd definitely book again to see what the roof gardens look like approaching Christmas. And make sure you do book as the people who hadn't booked were in a very LONG queue!

Good time thank you, slightly disappointed was shrimp rather than mussels as expected on the menu and at times there was a rather unpleasant smell around. The staff were very helpful though and the weather was great.

Our first introduction to Filipino food, the whole group thoroughly enjoyed. We had everything on the menu between us! Good portion sizes and a lovely variety of fresh flavours and ingredients. Highly recommend. Location couldn't be faulted on a sunny day in London.

Although there was an initial long wait to speak to someone regarding the booking and be seated - probably due to a very busy and hot afternoon ! - once seated the sevice was good, the staff friendly and the food and drinks fab. I will definately recommend and come again. Thank you

I booked for 6pm. We were sat promptly but it took a while for the waitress to notice that we were ready to order. My partner requested the pork belly only to be told you had sold out! That is frankly not acceptable at 6pm on a Sat when the kitchen is aware of the bookings. The food arrived quickly and was tasty. I was however disappointed to receive my prawns in a chipped bowl. When the Scottish waitress came to clear I remarked on the chip and she laughed it off blaming it in poor JL crockery. A simple "sorry" would have sufficed. She was the same waitress who pushed past my chair very forcefully during service rather than ask me to move. She is brash, abrasive and has no customer service skills. She is really not front of house material for your brand. The food was good albeit restricted to the choice of 2 mains but the service let you down on this occasion.

Really lovely set up and atmosphere and a lovely day to enjoy the last of the English summer. Being a Filipina myself, I really enjoyed the food and so did my husband. Unfortunately though, the service was at times lacklustre and we had to ask to order and at times the waitress seemed she would rather be elsewhere. Other than that a good experience.

Everything was more or less 4* and above. The food was delicious, there were a variety of dishes but could do with more options for side dishes. The atmosphere was great, live music and great space to socialise. I would definitely visit again next year.

Venue is amazing, was lovely to be in this hidden gem in the city, and amazingly peaceful on the rooftop considering we are in bustling Oxford Circus! Food was good although fresh chilli lacked heat and pork belly was dry and tough. Music was on point, the DJ was awesome and her music made the night. Service was poor, waitresses in rush, barely had time to listen to your order let alone make any recommendations on menu, unfriendly and seemed eager to clear up and pack away tables and chairs even though it was not a very busy night and place advertised as open until 10pm. Some areas were packed up by 8:30pm.
