A frequent visitor to this store but our first visit to the restaurant for a coffee and a cake. Very impressed with the service and friendliness of the staff. Restaurant very clean. Will revisit for a snack or meal next time.

I love the meatballs, mash, gravy & lingonberry jam. Free coffee and baby food with each meal if you have an Ikea Family card. Great value at £3.80!

I'm always amazed at the food served here. It's tastes good and is reasonably priced. We often pop in here to eat and we don't even look around the store. More of a canteen atmosphere than a restaurant but it's clean, main course is a fiver and the staff are friendly

The Ikea food is always very reasonable in price and quality it basically a canteen but the selection is good. Saturdays are very busy and noisy.

Stopped at Ikea for a coffee to await the clearing of traffic jam clogging every road in Lakeside shopping centre. Decided it would be a good idea to eat a meal as. I chose lamb shank mashed potatoes and peas, which was absolutely delicious, tender and tasty meat, the potatoes were smooth also very tasty, peas were fine. My husband... More

We went here for dinner on our way to Gatwick airport. It is usually fine but oh dear this time was awful. It was very busy but there was hardly any staff. Most of the food on the left was gone. The staff serving were SO slow, and it was all very frustrating. One lady came back to get her... More

There was a long queue for lunch and it took ages. The chicken supreme was very dried up and the potato parmentier was unrecognisable. We have eaten here several times before but today was awful. Tables needed to be wiped and cleared.

Convenient to have there and usual to be able to stop for a refresher there and bite to eat. Food standard is average and is literally a canteen and food tastes as such.
