Chef’s selection of Dishes. Must be selected by the entire table. Vegetarian option available.
Honestly this shop ruined my good impression about flesh and bun. I used to dine in the their soho restaurant, their signature Japanese fried chicken their looks great and taste very nice. I ordered the same in this Covent Garden store, it’s so disappointing - the colour is yellowish like the coating of fried squid, and I saw chicken’s hair too up close, just ruined my appetite.
Plus I ordered the salmon don, comparing to their soho store, their presentation to taste just feeling not the same level, I think the chef do much better in soho one comparing this Covent Garden store. Also this restaurant is downstairs/underground, I don’t like the atmosphere.
Brunch is fantastic, food was amazing and bottomless prosseco was great!
Very nice food!
Not cheap but then given the location is pretty standard.
I feel that the ambiance could be a bit nicer (maybe through lighting) but by no means bad.
We had a great meal at Flesh and Buns, the staff were really nice and even brought us a complimentary dessert for my partners birthday which was so nice and helped make our day special. I would recommend it to everyone!
Bottomless brunch was good value for money.
Lots of great food to eat and they did not stint with the prosecco.
It was quite different. I think the service could have been more efficient and whilst some were friendly others not so.
Service was good and location was good but food was overpriced and not great. Not noticeably better than cheaper similar alternatives. The exception was the duck which was tasty. That being said I won't be going again which is too bad.
Food was great but there were very distinct pink lipstick stains on my water glass. My issue isn't with the stain being there, as I know dishwashers aren't always the best, but with the person setting up our table who obviously didn't check to make sure everything was clean. Stains happen, just make sure you catch them before your customers do.
Great atmosphere and lovely service!
food was good (but not outstanding), overall reasonable value for money bearing in mind the venue location.
It was very cold
Great service, really loved the buns !!
And the drinks were amazing and the s’mores is a must get !!
I come to flesh and buns for every special occasion, it’s my all time favourite and never disappoints! Food is 10/10 every time, the salmon teriyaki is just beautiful and the plating is exceptional!
Great food and value and good service. The tuna poke was amazing. The only thing I would change is not bringing the food out all at once as I would have liked a rest in between courses.
Amazing food! We had the tasting menu which was good value for money. The cocktails were fantastic too! Can’t wait to go again. Foodie heaven!
Fantastic service and great food, really good portion sizes and great value. Would definitely return!
Great food. Went for the taster menu. Everything was delish. A real good food and good value too.
Amazing customer service
Really chilled environment
Excellent food! Friendly staff and service was spot on.👍 Our favourite seating is one of their booth table seatings. A defo to head back and taste more of their Chef’s creations! Definitely will recommend and bring friends too! X
Good food and a great setting, points off for gluten free options and alternatives lacking, as well as knowledge of dishes by staff. Don’t let that put you off, it’s a real gem overall.
We went to celebrate my girlfriend birthday and we were surprised how much the food has changed in this place. It use to be very tasty and full of flavour and the buns was very fluffy. This time we was quite surprised with the food and also the bill didn't correspond with the food we had.
Amazing sushi and fast service, little on the expensive side for small portions but overall a lovely evening with friendly staff.
Amazing food, amazing service, amazing atmosphere. Yes
The food was great. Although a bit disappointed that we were approached by our waitress to advise that if we wanted to order more food we would need to do this before 9pm which was fine.. but she disappeared and returned after 9 so we couldn’t actually place the extra order as her machine wouldn’t allow her to. Annoying to say the least.
Lovely food and staff were really helpful and friendly - I would definitely recommend getting the wings and also asking for extra wing dipping sauce too! We were sat directly in front of the kitchen and I would advise not sitting here as it was really noisy.
Third visit here and probably the best. We went for the tasting menu (40pp) with £10 off for eat out help out. The amount of food we got was amazing! We actually couldn't finish our mains so I took it home and enjoyed them for lunch the next day, which was excellent.
The chicken wings are a must. The butterfish ceviche is amazing too and I love the aubergine bao. SO GOOD! It's such a buzzy restaurant and the service is always friendly too.
Delicious cocktails and all round great food, I will be back.
Great experience, however it would be helpful if vegan and vegetarian dishes were clearly marked as such on the menu.
Food was great, as were the waiting staff. But we did get the starters 5 mins apart and they forgot to put the tuna sashimi on my tuna sashimi poke.
But the food was delicious.
Food and service fabulous. Music terrible
Great service. Good food. Ordered the butter fish (melts in your mouth) and fried chicken per recommendations of our server. Both were fantastic. The buns OMG yum!!! My Hisbads salmon was also good. Would go back! Thank you.
Great meal, good service, wasn’t rushed though the people on our table had to leave to accommodate our booking. Would definitely go back.
The waitress who served us was absolutely lovely and so sweet, the sashimi, sushi and Korean wings were outstanding and probably my favourite dishes from the menu. For four adults we paid about £40 each for a good amount of food and would definitely come back again, one of my favourite restaurants and the s’mores dessert is always fun to play with
Flesh & buns has always been such a great place! Unfortunately it’s just no longer up there for me, so many other bao / steamed bun restaurants i would recommend before this one.
The food was delicious and the service was brilliant!
With the extended eat out to help out scheme, the meal was great value for money!
Amazing Bao buns!! Great service and good practice of corona virus guidelines
Food was great especially the Korean fried chicken and seared butterfish and our waitress was very friendly and made us feel comfortable and made for a more enjoyable experience
Tasty food, nice interior, friendly staff. Would go again
The food was great, particularly the butterfish which was recommended by the lovely waiter.
Sashimi platter was delightful and wonderfully presented
Pork bao was delicious.
Sake recommendations were a little poorly advised sadly, as the server was very polite.
Service petered off as the night went by.
Very hard to get our bill.
Seemed as though most of the server team finished at 10pm.
Spent 15 minutes simply trying to get the attention of the only server we could now see, who was extremely busy.
Food was okay not much flavour. Chicken wings were just a bright pink congealed bony shape. 2 buns per dish is very mean. Paid £4 for 3 extra buns because are only served in pairs. What is the logic of that? Buns are tasteless condiments are served in tiny dishes (mean servings) Japanese chicken was 4 lumpy overcooked pieces.
