Great food and good service. We went there for a brunch, the place looked great and the food was really tasty. Absolutely loved the pork belly crumpets.

Eight of us had a very pleasant lunch here on a Sunday afternoon.

The menu was nicely varied and with mains averaging at around £14 it seemed very reasonably priced, especially considering the prime location.

The restaurant was very busy and there was a good atmosphere. We had two children with us but that wasn't an issue and the diners seemed to range in all ages. There was a real bustle about the place which I enjoyed but I think it would be more suitable to groups rather than an intimate dining experience for two.

The food itself was very good and I think most people would be hard pushed to find something that doesn't appeal to them as there was a wide choice - even more so once the specials are taken into consideration.

The only problem occurred when a main course didn't show up and had to be chased and then the same thing happened again with deserts and then with coffee! You would think that after the first mistake a bit more attention would have been paid. To be fair, after we politely complained the staff acted promptly and with good grace so overall all it didn't spoil the meal.

I would definitely return to Blixen in the future as we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Just get the waiter to read the order back to you!

Nice place in Old Spitalfields.

The best thing is the chilled vibe, especially if you get a corner couch table.

But the food is pretty standard stuff, cooked well but lacks punch and voom factor.

Good for a plain jane business lunch.

We were looking for a high quality meal with good ambience. This restaurant looked the part, great menu and reception. Even the toilets were super modern and clean so what could go wrong with the meal and food.

We ordered a starter which was humus and it was delicious and fresh. The mains were a crab papperdelli with chilli (didnt really get any spice though) and a rack of lamb. Both didnt taste as good as they looked and the manager finally took the lamb off the bill because it was rare!!

Overall could have got a 5* but the taste let it down, sorry guys. Do try it though because the ambience was great.
