Food and the venue were lovely and staff were lovely too. Only downside is they bought our mains out while we were still having starters. Otherwise, still good and will go again

The carbonara pizza is amazing. Go with a big appetite and don't bother with any of the other dishes. That's the one!

I remember the good old days of the first deep pan pizza wave to hit London - Bob Payton's legendary Chicago Pizza Pie Factory in Hanover Square and LS Grunt's in Maiden Lane (now a branch of Big Easy). That was a long time ago and surprisingly there hasn't been a place to get a good 'pie' since. Plenty of excellent sour dough and thin crust but no real deep dish delights. But now Japes has come to fill that void and it is not bad at all. Excellently priced and pretty authentic to my no doubt unskilled London palate.
It was a little quiet for a Saturday lunchtime but I hope that's just because the word has yet to spread. I'm looking forward to going back and trying a few more of the varieties - especially the carbonara!

Very disappointed not to get any OpenTable points, however...

I was very excited to try deep dish Chicago style pizza since i’m a pizza addict. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. It doesn’t taste nice at all and the options are really limited to basic toppings. The cheese tastes rubbery and tomato sauce isn’t great either. Do not recommend, it’s too expensive for what It is. In fact, I wouldn’t even eat it if it was free.

Excellent meal, great service and the restaurant was really well decorated inside. We sat in a window table and enjoyed the breeze.

The pizzas were really good and we will definately be returning.

if you like you pizzas deep, and super cheesy this si the place for you. really good value for central London. Good selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks too. You can even box up your left overs and take them with you, which is great.

Relaxed place serving comfort food in a great location. A single drink is more expensive than a main course which reflects the reasonably priced food rather than the expensive drinks.

Tried the 'basic',great cheese to sauce ratio, not over done. Nicely cooked deep dish. The meal itself was a little later than expected, and half the table received their starters first and the other half arrived minutes before the mains. But overall, the taste overshadowed everything else.

Nice experience, unique type of pizza for London, avoid getting the Mediterranean pizza, way to many cheeses on it ( goats cheese, feta , mozzarella and hullomi) basically tastes just of cheese, but other than that it was a nice ambient restaurant, oh yes would have been nice if there was some sides available not just pizza. Ketchup would have gone well with the Chicago style pizza, but only chilly and garlic oils were provided

The deep dish pizza is ends up just being a cheese filled fest which after a few bites leaves you feeling sickly. The toppings although nothing new are flavoursome but unfortunately are drowned out by all the cheese!!
