The London - Paddington
*As per council restrictions, dogs are currently not permitted on the premises.
Ordered the prawn salad, which was tasty, but for $29 it’s a tiny portion size, more like a very expensive starter. When I got home I needed to have another small meal as was still hungry (and I’m not a big eater/person).
Note that dogs are no longer allowed. Apparently Woollahra council changed the rules. The London were really great changing our table so we could be near the door to keep an eye on our pooch which was appreciated.
Thank you for your constructive feedback Kimberley. We apologise for your unsatisfactory experience with the Prawn Salad. I will be sure to pass this information to the chef so that we can make changes in the future. We are glad to head that you were happy sitting near your dog at the window! It is a nice way to still come to the pub with your pooch 😊
Great place for a lovely meal and catch up with friends!
Thank you for the positive feedback Cherie, we look forwards to having you back at the London Paddington soon 🙌💛
Always a lovely pub to visit, friendly staff and a good food menu, coupled with them keeping with current covid restrictions lead to a nice night. Would love to see it packed again but it was nice nonetheless!

Nice bar staff - very service oriented. Nice food, well priced and well prepared. A genuine, happy, 'local' pub experience. We will be back.
Always a fun time at the London. Love your specials.

Quiet and relaxing, food was good, friendly service.
Thank you Donna, we are glad you enjoyed your visit to The London. We hope to see you again soon for another delicious meal!
A quiet little pub post COVID makes it the ideal location for a Sunday night out.
Thank you so much for your positive words. We are so glad we can keep the community spirit alive through these difficult times! We hope to see you again soon.
Standard pub grub. Would love more veggie / healthy options.
Great location, great pub, great food. At this strange time in the world they practiced safe hygiene measures & social distancing, which was reassuring. Just one negative was the noise level. The music & ambient noise made conversation difficult....but then, I'm a middle-aged man & my hearing ain't what it used to be, so take that with a grain of salt.
Hi Andrew, thank you for your positive feedback. We have tried our hardest to comply with hygiene practice in these strange times. Thank you for appreciating it! We apologise about the loud noise and will try and work on this in the future. We look forwards to seeing you at the London Paddington again soon!
Best sunday roast we've all had in a long time! Only rhing id improve is a mocktail list for my pregnant friend
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your Sunday Roast Cloda, thank you for the positive feedback. We will be sure to work on our Mocktail list, thank you for that recommendation. We apologise if this caused any issue for your time at the London We look forwards to seeing you again soon!
Great space lovely service from gentleman at the door.

Always a fun night at The London.
Great food, great drinks and great company.
Hi teeny, thanks for your review - we look forward to welcoming you back to The London again soon :)
Excellent service, food was of the usual high standard. It was good to be back!
It was the perfect place for a casual little party, good food and drinks, great location and the staff were so friendly and accomodating.
Hi Renae, Thank-you for the feedback - we look forward to welcoming you back to The London again soon for your next Function!
Hands down the best roast in Sydney! Portion sizes are generous, yorkshire puddings large and home made, crispy roast potatoes and delicious pork crackling.
Hi Liz, thank-you for your feedback! We're glad to hear the Sunday Roast hit the spot. We look forward to welcoming you back to The London again soon
Yes, if they were up for a very noisy bar/restaurant. They did turn the rugby league on the TV down in the dining room when I asked. Its all self service, but the staff are very friendly and even though it was packed you didnt have to queue too much. Very noisy space though - not great for an intimate dinner with friends.
This is the second time we have been here. The first time was lovely. Great food and service. This time was not great. The not enough staff and the food was not as good as last time. Over all very poor second visit. Which is sad as we were looking forward to dinner due to the great time we had previously.
Love East London! Always fabulous food, service and atmosphere.
Exceptional staff serving well executed Asian food. Absolutely would recommend dining here.
Great night, as always! Awesome waiter, yum food and a very good wine recommendation!
This restaurant is very close to where we live, I wanted it to be good. The dumplings were delicious, the bang bang chicken I would not have again , but the crispy chicken was good. The place was very empty for a Saturday night, then we found out there was a football game on. Staff were in go slow mood and I had to ask for obvious things several times. All up Id go back.
Its a local gem in heart of Paddington. Food is delicious and well presented. Portions are enough for 4 to share. Staff are good especially Taylor the manger. Exceptionally polite and helpful every time we've been there.
Our only complaint is the music! Its awful and doesn't fit the ambience and style of the place. Its OK for the pub downstairs.
Definitely will continue to go to East London and for us its a quick walk home! Perfect
Food here was delicious, so many flavours & very tasty. Really enjoyed all dishes we ordered. Bill at end was expensive but for a special occasion its a great night out.
Service was average. Took a while to take orders and forgot one of them, which they took of the bill when we asked about it. Delicious cocktails & nice range of gins. Food was good, but not amazing. Good place for sharing food in a group
Really relaxed vibe that was welcoming without being overbearing. The atmosphere was great for a Tuesday night, few other tables around. Very casual dining with a menu designed for sharing. We really enjoyed getting a few dishes to share and trying new things. If I had to find an issue, the skirt steak could've been cut a bit smaller or served with a knife. However that is trivial as food and service were overall fantastic. We'll be back soon!
2nd Visit to East London with both visits being great evenings with nice food and good wine selections. Very casual which is always nice too.
The food was fabulous
Great night out. Perfect mid-week spot. Food was outstanding.
Delicious food and enjoyable place to dine with friends.
We sat in the private dining area with the high round table. Perfect spot for good conversation, still filled with atmosphere but we could hear each other with the glass doors closed.
Just slightly on the chilly side in the evening.
Food was fantastic, everything we ordered was delicious.
Dumplings, wontons, duck pancakes, fish, noodles with prawns, brussel sprouts, all yum.
this was our 4th visit to East London. I think the menu and chef have changed. The food was not as good as previously. I will not be returning
East is a bit of a local's secret. Beautiful Chinese food with a twist, lovely environment and well priced. Certainly my current 'go to' restaurant. Been there 3 times in the last 2 months.
Chicken and corn potstickers were undercooked and had to be sent back - staff compensated with a round of drinks and free dumplings. After the incident though, the staff avoided us (probably from embarrassment) but we couldn't get their attention. They would pour sparkling water into still water and vice versa.
Six of us had a meal there on Saturday night. The waitress was really nice and wasn't too pushy. She was very attentive but not in an intrusive way. It's quite loud in the bar downstairs but the restaurant upstairs is perfect for ambiance and you can chat properly (the spice smells from the kitchen were amazing too!). This is a nice 'laid back' local restaurant. Beautiful food & great service
The staff and service was outstanding.
Really enjoyed the food and the ambience. Would high recommend this restaurant.
Fab all round.
This was the third time we have taken friends to this Restaurant. Previously we have had a good experience, however last night was disappointing.We felt rushed, main courses were being served with entrees, a vegetable side dish was served with rice before any main courses.
We raised our concerns and still found the problems continued. We will not be returning to East London in the near future.
