Nice restaurant, can get pizza or freashly made pasta while you watch. I ordered the chicken alfreado, it was fabulous. Generous portions, large pices of chicken. You won't leave hungry.

Not sure I like the concept with the different stations for pizza, pasta and salads etc. I prefer to sit and order. Menu does sound nice and a decent variety but something missing. My BBQ pizza was okay and my friend's pasta was delicious. Slightly...More

I really like Vapiano, it is a simple self service restaurant . Pizzas and spaghetti cooked on the spot . The variety is satisfying, the prices are fair and the ambience is cool ! When in the area I always visit it !

Know this chain from Germany and really like their food. But too long of a wait during lunch time. Wish they were on deliveroo or more chains opened up.

Serves delicious pizza and pasta on a par with any of the other Italian chains - the customisation offered by it's concept differentiates it from the competition. Shame about the communal seating which means as a couple you might have to share with 4 rowdy...More

You get a card on arrival and then it is do-it-yourself. Find your own table, get your own drinks and queue and wait for your own food which is charged to your card (you present the card on the way out and pay then). The...More

Looks lovely, clean, modern. Food looks lovely. We wanted a starter and drinks followed by main courses. The way it works is you queue at a station and have your food made. That was the problem. Too long a wait while several meals are made...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
