American
You’ll find Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant and market in the historic ‘Trocadero’ building, just a few minutes’ walk from Piccadilly Circus or Leicester Square. The restaurant is a tribute to the film ‘Forrest Gump’ and features a menu of comfort food from the American South that reflects the film’s setting in Alabama. Shrimp is of course the specialty but there’s something to delight everyone on the menu including all American burgers, crisp salads and indulgent desserts. Relax in a fun, casual setting where the friendly staff will welcome you just the way Forrest and his ‘best good friend’ Bubba would!

Food is not tasty at all! Heaven shrimp is more like heaven fries. Don’t order it! Overpriced for a few shrimps on top

Good, fun atmosphere that embraces all things forest gump with the benefit of great lasting food and drinks. Try the ‘run forest run’ smoothie. Amazing.

We had pre-booked because of Covid and it was an easy and pleasant visit. The restaurant was signed posted and hand sanitizer was available. I just love the atmosphere of bubba’s and the food is good too. We was celebrating our anniversary, and we hat better way to start than with a nice meal and awesome pudding to finish.

We love it here, second time of going, although different to the last time, as we are in the middle of a pandemic, but still enjoyable & felt comfortable with how the restaurant dealt with these surreal time's. Will definitely be going back.

Garlic bread didn’t taste fresh was just like frozen from the supermarket! Crab stuff mushrooms not fresh either cooked separate and crab must have been frozen! Steak and mahi mahi was lovely

Excellent food & service was friendly. The atmosphere was good given the restricted dining conditions due the current climate.
My one niggle was the mains were delivered to table before we had completely finished our shared starter platter.
If you love shrimp this place is a must.

It was lovely to go to bubba gumps as Me and my family love the American restaurants. However the American and English restaurant has a big difference with the staff and they are more happier and talkative in America

First time at Bubba Gump and we were very much looking forward to our visit. The service was very good however the food was slightly disappointing especially the Hush Pups (lacked any flavour) and the Cajun Shrimps (spices were burnt and very oily) which we were very much looking forward to. The quality of the shrimps however was excellent, and the Net catch Entree was tasty but saturated in oil. Quite pricey even though we had the 25% eat out discount.

Food was cold, came out within 10 minutes so you know it hasnt just b been cooked and it felt like it had been under a heat lamp for a while. We were given sauce pots and they were dried with a thick skin so the sauce has obviously been left out for a while. Very overpriced for food that isnt fresh. Very disappointed as we planned this restaurant weeks prior to our trip as its based on forest gump!

Ate there mid week with a friend. They have taken lots of appropriate social distancing measures.
Food was ok, Cajun shrimp especially nice.

Lovely food and good service. It was my sons birthday and the server brought him a special ice cream. The staff all sang him a birthday song too. It was a nice touch and made it special for him. Also there was a kids eat free offer on which was great.

I think this restaurant is really overrated, we were so excited to come here. But we went for a friend's birthday and l was disappointed to find a hair in my cocktail and that when my food finally came it was extremely greasy and lukewarm which meant I could only manage to eat a little.

When complaining we were only given £3 discount off bill which was nearly £150 for 3 people... (we were told American food is super greasy apparently) also we didnt pay for 1 cocktail. Considering amount spent and that it was my friends birthday we could have been compensated better.

One plus point was the staff were nice and made us feel welcome

Food was good but very expensive for what it is.....don't understand the 12 and a half per cent service charge which let it down. Enjoyed the experience but wont be going back at them prices.

Been here a couple of times before lockdown. This visit was a bit of a let down. Everything seemed very limited. The fact that you are expected to pay for tap water is a bit much. Not sure we will be returning to this location anytime soon unfortunately.

Food was just okay not nearly as expected, maybe we expected too much considering the circumstances.

The price of the food needs to be looked at as overpriced for what it is can safely say I will not be eating there again until the prices have been lower to a reasonable rate

COVID has wreaked havoc, but staff were friendly and the manager/hostess was professional and attentive and our waiter was very friendly and great with our kids as well. We weren’t there for the food, we were there for memories and margaritas. They delivered.
