temper is a unique BBQ, steak and open fire pit restaurant where we cook everything in front of your eyes using only wood and charcoal in huge 4.5m long fire pit in the middle of the room.

We only use the best produce available and source our meat from local farms and butcher it all ourselves in house.

We serve this alongside cornish fish and seafood on corn tortillas and flat breads we made in house.

Each week we have ‘Sunday sharing specials’ for the table.

We have 180 seats which you can book but we always reserve room for walk-ins.

Temper rightly has a reputation for good quality food that consists of a simple method. Quality ingredients and quality cooking get you fantastic results!
This particular location of Temper specialises in grilled steak and meats with a mexican twist in offering tacos, carnitas and nachos all with decadent flourishes.
The desserts are no after thought either with a lot of diners coming for their cookie dough or butterscotch sweet treats.
Your wallet may not thank you but your tummy definitely will!

Always a great food experience. A bit disappointed by the wine list. That was better in winter. But the food is still here to make us happy. The service was really great. I’ve been there with two colleagues. And rather than to spend hours to select ours dishes I asked the waiter to do the selection for us. A better choice :) I do like surprises. That were good ones. And as we found a correct that was even better. Of course we didn’t miss the famous cookie at the end. This one makes you becoming younger. It’s simple but so good. Reminds me things I ate when I was a teenager. Ok, a while ago then :)

Recently ate here with my family and the overall experience was excellent. The service was great as they were kind enough to hold our table while we were running late.
Starters were good but our drinks order didn’t go though the system but was quickly resolved. The food was fantastic! The desserts and drinks were great as well.

Overall my family enjoyed the restaurant and I’d definitely come back to the restaurant.

It was my fiance’s graduation and I asked to write congratulations in the dessert. The girl who called me one day before the booking she told me they will make it possible but at the end nothing happened.

Also, the lady who served us, it seems that she was always in a rush. No great service!

However, the food was great!

Thanks

Restaurant is a lovely little gem in Soho. Was disappointed that they didn't do the pre-theatre menu but was told I had to book into Covent Garden branch to get this.. Unsure why different branches have different terms but hey ho. Food was tasty and suitable for meat eaters. Atmosphere was lovely

Ash on the grill really looked after us. give that man a pay rise. the staff were wonderful. this is clearly a very well run business. the food was great, and there was no pressure selling. my Argentine friend, who knows a thing or two about the art of grilling, loved it. outstanding food and service

The small dishes were outstanding. The porterhouse was more than 50% fat or bone I would definitely avoid ordering again especially with So many other wonderful items on the menu! Counter seats are generally super sadly we were by the washing up so not quite what we’d hoped for. The booths looked super cosy and staff were excellent despite the disappointing steak (no discount was offered but the situation was handled very well). Overall I would return but select dishes and seating better!

Lovely welcome at the reception upstairs.
Downstairs it was busy and everyone was rushing, but our waiter ( sorry I don’t have his name ) was really caring and nice.
My ribeye was more cooked than I asked ( rear ) and for this price it was slightly upsetting, however it was so tasty that I haven’t asked to replace it.

Overall Temper is always a good choice. Attention: music was quite loud ( but great playlist )

Manager, female with the blonde hair was fantastic - super attentive and made us feel v welcome. Female server not so much, slightly rude and unhelpful; asked for a meat cut recommendation and she replied "I don't know" followed by "they're all good" - not exactly what I was looking for. Other than that great experience.

Great atmosphere and music in temper Soho. The rump steak and goat dish were 10/10. Also ordered four sides to share and couldn’t fault any of them! The staff were very knowledgable when I asked about different items on the menu. I will definitely be returning as well as trying the other two restaurants.

Lovely staff. Really sweet with my outgoing 5 year old (perhaps because it was a quiet lunchtime, they let her hang out with the staff- wouldn't expect this on a busy evening, but it was lovely all the same) Amazing food and really nice wines available by carafe. Felt like a special lunch (its not cheap) but not at all stuffy.
