The view is fabulous and so is the service. Everyone was friendly, attentive and full of helpful info. We enjoyed Caesar Salads and crab to start followed by the lamb, the venison and the Bass. The food was very good if a little over salted. Desserts of cheesecake were perfect. The wine list is reasonable for this level of restaurant, we enjoyed trying a Brazilian wine of merit as well as a good selection of South African and Argentine wines. Will certainly be back.

The restaurant came well recommended and it didn't disappoint, we had amazing views over London. Looking directly at tower bridge. The service couldn't have been better apart from the wine list being taken away before we ordered our bottle, only a minor point though. The food was amazing. Couldn't fault any of the three courses. The wine was lovely. They had a great selection. We would definitely eat there again.

You pay fairly high prices, but you receive oodles of ambience, very good service and excellent food. The only observation was that (even though I am nearly 6ft) the chairs were slightly low for the table height (or the table was too high...).

Worth a visit if you are feeling flush.

We visited Ting for my partners birthday! Small portions which is what we of course expected but really amazing view and food. They had happy birthday hand written on a small piece of gold chocolate which was very thoughtful. Would definitely recommend!

Overall great experience we got a table with the view on Tower Bridge that was exactly what we asked for. The view was extraordinary and food was good. The waitress was nice but I had a little bit "posh feeling" from the restaurant.

For the location, we were expecting a higher standard of food. The price was quite reasonable, however the menu itself wasn’t on par with the higher end London restaurants. As always, the view was spectacular.

For all the hype, the meal was disappointing. The crab starter was tasteless and Caesar salad was simply bizarre and unedible (more like an anchovy and mayonnaise surprise). Main course OK but desserts again lacking taste. Even the waiters admitted that the chef's experiments are a bit hit and miss. So many different waiters served us that we lost count how many and they got a bit confused. Views were spectacular though.

Ting is at the top of the Shard building in London. It has very 360 views of the London’s cityscape however we didn’t get a table by the window even though it was requested in our reservation. The food was delicious and well presented however if you’re expecting some Chinese culture or taste there was none.

Our hostess had no idea of what was available for breakfast, or what drinks we could have. We were served by four different people. I paid cash and my change would have been around £5 the person who I gave the money to did not bring any change back and then left. Breakfast was cold. Very poor in comparison to our visits to other Shard restaurants.

Four of us attended for a birthday event. We had a choice of a three, five or seven course menu. Went for three course menu and found food was ok but was hoping it would have been a lot nicer. Layout of the restaurant was good but staff (of which there were many) seemed to be very unorganised and not as attentive as I was expecting. Many times we were thinking of getting up and going over to the place they stored your bottles to pour ourselves....and the place did not seem that busy.

Whilst the food was great. We ideally would have liked to have been seated near a window. Furthermore, we felt as though we were being hurried along and encouraged to leave rather than let us enjoy our meal, that we paid 'good' money for. Our dessert arrived around five minutes after our main, and my partner's plate was taken away before she had actually finished eating her main.

Lovely views and a very nice ambiance and great service. Menu was maybe a little limited - I am not vegetarian but did not notice much available for vegetarians, which stands out a little. Food was very well prepared and presented. In terms of value, not cheap but worth the money.

There is no denying that the view is spectacular. Food, however, was disappointing. My starter of crab terrine contained a piece of shell and was bland. My friend couldn't finish her beef tartare. Bread was served with an anchovy butter that was just weird and unpleasant. I had the ribeye my main course: 2 x 2 inch chunks of tough meat, one of which was 50% fat. When I challenged the waiter about this he said that ribeye is a fatty cut (correct) and that the fat is the eye of the ribeye (incorrect). He did not apologise or offer any compensation for the fact that one quarter of the ribeye was inedible. Then when the bill came (and it's not cheap at £70 for 3 small courses), we had been charged for a bottle of champagne that we did not order. I eat in lots of restaurants, both good and average, but I will not eat here again.

Excellent restaurant with impeccable and flawless service. Truly the greatest I have ever dined at and I look forward to dining there again. However, I do wish that the lights above the window seats could be adjustable in brightness in order to compliment the outstanding view.

We have been to Ting for many special dinners and they have all been excellent until this one. They forgot to bring us bread, the service was extremely attentive to the table next to us, but sadly not ours. The food was not nearly as good as it has been previously. My wife ordered the rib eye, but it was the toughest meat I have ever experienced and we had to return it. It was my daughter’s birthday, yet they only gave it passing mention at the end. We ordered coffee with desert, but it came way before the desert.

Atmosphere, decor, view, comfort, service all excellent and exactly what we hoped for. The food, however, was disappointing. Whilst tasty, the portion sizes were so small it was laughable, and simply not enough accompaniments to the main item. My chicken dish included one baby leek by way of vegetables for example. Despite having 3 courses, we left hungry and ate a further snack on arriving home.

The view is amazing. Went there for breakfast and the a la cart dishes are not great. Quite basic and simple for the value.
If you want to go for the view is great but don’t expect much of the breakfast food.
The service was great!

Took my wife for her Birthday, my daughter also accompanied us.
The staff were very friendly and Welcoming.
The Waiter who served us was very informative and had suggested the correct dining options, to accommodate the Halal options.
The offer we had served us glasses of champagne and since we don't drink alcoholic beverages, they very kindly served us Non Alcoholic mocktails as a replacement.
Towards the end of our food the waiter had arranged members of the kitchen staff to prepare some complimentary biscuits and cakes with a lovely birthday message written on an eatable chocolate.
The views from the restaurant was breathtaking and a great ambient atmosphere altogether.
The waiter also took good care and attention to my daughter's needs.
I would highly recommend this to all friends and family, should they wish to experience Shard visit followed with a dining experience at Ting restaurant.

A huge thank you to our Waiter and everyone at the Ting.

Warm Regards
A R Uddin
