The food, the decor, the atmosphere were all as fantastic as we had hoped. A concise menu, covering smalls, salads, grills and curries, like nothing you'll find elsewhere in London. Contemporary yet authentic decor; enthusiastic, friendly yet knowledgeable staff. I could not recommend highly enough.

We came for a special occasion and Lahpet ended up being the perfect choice - the food was wonderfully different, delicious and looked incredibly appetising. The restaurant was buzzing and the layout perfect for gatherings of different sizes. Highly recommended.

We'd never had Burmese before but our server was friendly and helped out with recommendations. Everything was delicious- the hake masala really stood out.

A warm and welcoming experience for small and larger groups of friends and family. The decor tasteful and not overdone and everything from food and the plates they were served on was well presented. Good to see Burmese food in such a modern setting.

Stunningly average food, some things overcooked, some passable, all lacking in character. The service and ambiance was great, but when it comes to the food it had all the verve and panache of a Tesco ready-meal. The Lahpet salad was ok, but workmanlike, the mains however blended into a homogeneous mass that was less than compelling.

Arrived on time for our 21:00 reservation but left queueing by the door for 15m. Annoyingly a customer further back in the queue who pushed ahead to "check their reservation" was seated ahead of us even though we (and other customers who'd been waiting patiently) complained. Not great. Service once we were seated was fine. Food was excellent. Would visit again, just not at peak time.

The mustard pork curry is so good and the restaurant has a nice vibe. They could do with a few more non fishy things on the menu though. The dumplings were disappointing as full of what tasted like fish flakes. Even my friend who liked fish wasn't keen on these. I had some amazing ones they were cooking on the side of the road in Bagan in Burma and they were made of just ground up rice powder and some herbs so doesn't sound like it should be so hard to recreate!

I have been to Lahpet from their first location. In general, the quality of the food was great except few things. Fritters were a bit tasteless, we couldn't taste the differences at all. & the dessert was very average. We won't' able to cut the ice cream with the spoon we were given. The table next to us complained about the exact reason, the restaurant didn't charge them but we were charged because we didn't say so. I mentioned it to the waiter when we pay, he didn't even say 'sorry' or anything. He nodded and that was it. The other thing was the attitude of the waiter. Throughout the meal, he was not very helpful. We had to remind him that we ordered a wine. We told him that we went to their original location but he said 'ok'. There was no friendliness at all. However, I don't think this applies to all the staffs they have, the host was very welcoming and smiley. Regardless, Their main courses were on point. Curries were flavourful, Fish was very fresh and the pork was so soft. We loved the main so much so we decided to bare the unpleasant part of the restaurant. Hope they can improve their service and starters.

I went to the original pop up version and lived the food. This time around the portions were far smaller, but I'm glad to say the flavours were still really great. Definitely try the tea leaf salad and fried bream.

We had a great evening. The food was delicious. The waitress that served us was so enthusiastic. She explained everything about the food and the restaurant. She made a real difference. Altogether a great experience. Thank you

The food was fabulous, but the service was pretty bad. We were offered drinks and then the waitress never returned. We tried getting her attention, even when she was just a few feet from us, but she was continue to look forward as if she didn't see us waiving at her. Tables seated well after us already had food before we had ordered... I still plan to come back, hopefully with a different waitress.

Absolutely enjoyed Laphet! I will be returning and recommending to all my family and friends. The food and ambience was fantastic. Food was full of flavours. The price was very decent and you can enjoy a night’s out after in the heart of shoreditch.

Exceptional service, terrific menu with reasonable prices considering the standard and flavour of the food. Beautiful decor, definitely a place that I will visit regularly when I am in London.
