We wanted to try a different breakfast with the kids and couldn't really fault it, for what it is. The staff were super friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The menu offers something a bit out of the ordinary, pancakes were huge, drinks were well presented (kids gave the fresh lemonade 10/10) and would definitely recommend

One of those restaurants where nothing is actually terribly wrong, but - bored staff, zero atmosphere and mediocre food. A soulless chain restaurant. Given the great eating options in this area there is really no excuse to go. An important exception - it's definitely kid friendly. Lots of space and no one will frown at you.

We visited London for my birthday and went out for dinner here. It was very busy - being a Friday night - but we were served very quickly and the food was delicious. The only thing I didn't like was such a high service charge.

Great venue for a chat with a friend. Had a Classic burger with cheddar cheese all cooked to perfection and accompanied by sweet potato fries! Also had a lovely pot of Moroccan Mint Tea served in a heavy stone teapot. Nice waitress and good vibe to this restaurant located in London's hip & cool Spitalfield Market!

I visited giraffe for dinner last night when my train from Liverpool Street was delayed. For a Thursday night the restaurant wasn't busy and we were seated straight away. It then seemed to take forever for someone to ask us what we wanted for drinks by this point we thought it best to order food as well. I just want... More

I ordered the Shaksoura (£7.95) with chorizo (£1 on the menu, £1.65 on my bill) and was pleased when it arrived promptly after 10 minutes. However my pleasure soon turned to pain when I realised I had been served a boiling plate of tomato sauce, together with a couple of eggs and wafer thin slices of chorizo. After leaving the... More

We had a meal here which was ok. It was the first time that we had eaten in a Giraffe restaurant. The menu is quite large and varied. Gluten free food is available on some food. There is a happy hour drink menu during the week. Prices are average. The food was ok. Nothing special. Good for families.

My friend and I were celebrating her birthday and went to eat here after a day exploring London, the service provided by Oli was exceptional he was extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was very tasty and good value for money.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
