We celebrated a 50th birthday with 6 people at Bokan. While the food was generally very good and well presented on the plate, the service was absolutely terrible. The staff was not trained and inattentive. When we asked for the cocktail list, it took forever to arrive, and the waiter could not explain the cocktails and had to get another member of the bar staff. Likewise, the waiters were unable to explain certain items on the dinner menu, i.e. what they were or how they were prepared. Everything took an extraordinary amount of time to arrive. We had endless wait times between courses and long periods with empty drinks. It was very hard to track down the waiters for anything, and we had to physically get up twice to grab one to place an order. It was exhausting and distracting, bringing the mood down. No meal should take 4 hours to get through. We were also not served at the same time, i.e. some of us were sitting in front of their rapidly cooling main course while others hadn't received theirs yet. The mashed potatoes that were meant to come with my steak arrived only after I was finished. The same happened to some of our party as well, where side dishes were forgotten or arrived too late. The food was good, but not outstanding. The "petit fours" that came after dessert, were not what we expected: they included cheap tasting jellied sugar candy and by no means "petit fours," as in “delicate pastry”. I would not recommend the “birthday cake” that we had pre-ordered. It was not a cake in any sense of the word, but a moussey fluffy mass on a hard crust. It was impossible to cut and portion and unpleasant to eat. We left it there despite having paid around £50 in advance. I’ve heard the same review from friends who, like us, also live in Canary Wharf around the corner from the restaurant. We could be regulars, but I’m worried to go back and have the same experience. This area is in dire need of some outstanding restaurants, and it would be good if Bokan cleaned up their act and invested in better service staff (plus better coordination in the kitchen so parties could eat together). The ambience and décor are great, very New York. We just need some New York style waiters. There you’d get served a 3-course meal and are in and out in 1 hour. ;-)

I had a reserved area booked at 3pm and we had to wait for 20 mins before any of the pre ordered drinks were provided. Thats was disappointing. The quality if the food thereafter was good. All of my guests said that the breakfast (eggs, baked beans etc) was absolutely stone cold. I don't think that is goid enough for a £ 25 breakfast. Of couse the rooms and hotel decor were excellent. I do think that without the newness and position of the hotel this would have been a below average review.

We had the tasting menu and wine pairings. Both were excellent. The food was varied and delicious and the somellier matched the wines perfectly. Looking forward to my next visit.

I enjoyed the food and experience at this restaurant. I made a booking via the website but wanted to call and confirm and check on the table as it was a Birthday Gift. I person I spoke to didn't really understand and created another booking for me. It got complicated and very frustrating and stressful as it was an important night. The floor manager in the restaurant was lovely and he did his best to fix the problem once we arrived. And the girl I spoke to on the phone was very lovely too. I think it is very important to have someone answer the phone who can understand the clients needs rather than causing stress and unconfidents in your brand. I would go back... But it is quite pricey... I have eaten a michein stared restaurants for slightly more. Next time a steak a pint.....and some of that wicked mash potato!!!! A must try btw. James Billett

Sometimes the music can be too loud in the restaurant but it does help the great atmosphere. Slowly becoming my favourite restaurant in Canary Wharf.

Seriously I never moan and hate giving poor feedback but in this occasion I really need to. I booked a table for my family almost 2months in advance and on arrival was directed two bar tables with 8no bar stools squeezed around it. The food took too long to arrive and was handed out with people waiting for theirs after almost 20mins. There was no children’s menu and when booked I specifically informed Children were coming (mother’s day!!) The waitress was run off her feet and at one point the only member of staff serving the entire floor. You know what, I’m so upset I would like a phone call. I trust you understand my grievance.

Amazing food as always, the mash potato is incredible. Only down side is that they stopped topping up our glasses when dessert came- but that’s only me being very picky!

The restarant service was exceptional, very very friendly staff who really made our night as it was our anniversary and my birthday :) . The food was also fantastic, and will definitely rate among the top standard of restaurants I have experienced. The bar service was the only slightly dissapointing aspect, it was not terrible by any means just a bit slow and difficult to wave down servers. Overall however me and my girlfriend loved our experience there and will definitely be back!

I celebrated my birthday and i couldn’t be happier to have chosen the bokan. All my guests have been extremely pleased of the venue. The canapes i ordered were simply delicious and the drinks of very high quality. Service has been amazing and a special thank you to the lovely Margherita who has been extremely attentive and who made sure that everything was going well. A big thank you also to Josephine who took care of my reservation and answered to all my questions. Well done Bokan and keep treating your clients in this way!
