A lovely restaurant to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Beautifully presented food and friendly staff. Our second visit, and definitely not our last! Thanks!

Very nice and affordable restaurant where you can have yummy food . I’ve booked my table for 6 people online however when we went there our table wasn’t ready yet and we had to wait for the staff to put tables together , that’s the only critic about the restaurant.

Empty so why did they seat us right next to the open washing up area?? The duck and prawn dishes were good but the salted edamame beans were weak and tough, and the salmon was tasteless. Pity.

The restaurant is too hot it was uncomfortable and I was surprised to find that the bathrooms were even hotter! Please try to fix this as everything else was lovely with plenty of vegetarian options too

We’ve eaten at a few Hare and Tortoise branches, but this was our first time at the Blackfriars site. The food was great as it always is at H&T. The new Okonomiyaki sticks are fantastic. Our table had a mixtures of sashimi and noodle/rice dishes. Unfortunately the service was not great. It was a Monday night and it wasn’t very busy. Service was slow (the food came out fast, but it was all the other things that let them down) and the staff were a little hostile. I asked for dessert menus and a waitress brought them whilst I was having a conversation with someone at the table. She actually nudged me on my shoulder with the menus to get my attention. When we got the bill, they had added 10% service charge. We decided not to pay the whole amount of the tip, but did still leave one. A waitor stopped my sister on the way out insisting we had not paid the whole amount. When she explained we had paid for the meal and left a small tip, another waitress thanked her and ushered him away.

While the food was tasty, the dining experience was not ideal as the restaurant is really loud, making it hard to hold a conversation with people next to you or across the table. Some soft furnishings to soak up the noise would be good.
