Visited this restaurant after deciding this was a "must visit" on my first visit to London with my Sweet 16 year old daughter (and seeing it on TV)...it was an awesome experience! The food was delicious and the entertainment was one of a kind! Most definately a one of the highlights of my first trip! Now a couple years later...planning to book this year for my baby girls 16th bday!!! - Vanessa in Canada

Stumbled across this place about 20 years ago and was bowled over, and make a beeline for it every time I return to London. I always recommend it to people who want great food, reasonable prices but above all a unique atmosphere. It's now a firm favourite of my 3 children who love being taken there. Long may it continue.

Not knowing what to expect,and being invited by new friends,it was a great evening,the food was excellent,as was the quirky but full of fun service.
The entertainment was performed by Colin Roy,a man dedicated to making everyone feel happy and without being at all pushy generated a brilliant evening.having got that balance spot on,he then sung some fantastic songs and of course we all helped him out as requested.
Loved every moment,well done Sarastro,great work.we will be coming back.

The kitchen was officially closed when we went in, but the front of house sat is down and gave us a great meal. After a nice bottle of wine and a hearty meal we were very happy.

Carl Leafe - 19:21, Thursday 30th October 2014 [top]

Visited in September for my husband's 60th. Had an absolutely great night - Colin Roy was singing and the evening was so special We will never forget it. Everyone should visit this restaurant just once in their lifetime. xx

One of the best restaurants that you can find in Central London. Definitely a must-go place. You will love the Turkish tapas and mediterranean cuisine served here.

Hasan Vatandost - 09:50, Tuesday 8th July 2014 [top]

I wanted somewhere a little different for a party of ladies at my Daughters hen weekend. Sarastro's did not disappoint. It had the most amazing ambience and buzz.The musicians and opera singers were fantastic. The meal itself was very tasty indeed, everyone had a fabulous evening. If you're looking for somewhere quirky and different with a great fun atmosphere, then is the place.

pauline - 12:22, Wednesday 7th May 2014 [top]

First visit but definitely wont be our last

steve woudstra - 19:32, Sunday 20th April 2014 [top]

just had THE BEST night out last monday, we were at a friends 70th birthday surprise, food excellent as was the entertainment and sevice. Try it its great

david thelwall - 16:33, Wednesday 16th April 2014 [top]

I am from Lancashire, and went to the sarastro last June and loved everything about it. The food is outstanding And the seating is quirky and enjoyable. I thought about this resturaunt quite a lot over the last 9 months and wanted more than ever the starter I had the kisir! So when I had to return for business this weekend, Thais was my first port of call. If you are in London and you want something different and delicious then this is the place for you. I am back in Lancashire now and am hoping I need to return to London soon just Ainu can eat here. Thank you sarastro for an amazing meal, your hospitality is amazing and I will be returning very soon 😃

Angie Linford - 07:45, Sunday 30th March 2014 [top]

I would recommend this to anyone! I first came here 14 years ago at the age of ten and loved it, although the toilet decor was definitely a highlight in my memory. 14 years later I still love it! The food is delicious, the beef bourguignonn is my favourite! The staff are friendly and helpful, especially as we had a double push chair to fit I somewhere. The decor is beautiful and so different from the chain restaurant dominated world. The entertainment on Sunday lunchtimes is fabulous, such good value for your money to get dinner and a string quartet and opera singers to entertain you!

Katie Lowe - 21:38, Sunday 16th March 2014 [top]

poo - 18:53, Saturday 22nd February 2014 [top]

Having dined at Sarastros many times since 1997 it still remains my favorite restaurant in the city. It has charm, elegance, the food is exquisite and you are guaranteed to be greeted with a warm welcome which usually consists of a glass of wine and pitta bread and olives on the table to start, what more could you ask for? :)

Sarah - 14:56, Tuesday 14th January 2014 [top]

Rarely does one have a meal that is a wonderfully tasty as they decor! Sarastro is an exception in more than one way.
Great staff, yummie food, fanstastic vibe, awesome music. Couldn't recommend it more

alvaro - 14:26, Friday 3rd January 2014 [top]

Anna - 14:33, Thursday 12th December 2013 [top]

Have been a keen fan since 1999 and it never disappoints. The staff are fantastic, the food undeniably wonderful and the venue is relaxed opulence personified. On a scale of 10, its always an 11.

Dennis Cheetham - 15:45, Wednesday 30th October 2013 [top]

I have visited this restaurant twice now - but just for drinks due to timings. It's absolutely gorgeous! Quirky just doesn't cover it. Lovely staff, amazing toilets. Stunning, stunning, stunning. One day I WILL get to eat here, and when I do, I'll let you know

If you want a different yet fun @ quirky hen night, with good food, you have to come here! The string quartet had us doing the can can, brilliant!

Julie - 10:44, Monday 14th October 2013 [top]

I visited Sarestro yesterday with my 8 year old daughter and couldn't have wished for a nicer experience. I discovered my watch was running slow which meant we had to run to the theatre half way through our meal. The waiter and management couldn't have been nicer as we were able to return later for dessert! We will be back with our whole family!

Kiaran - 12:56, Sunday 13th October 2013 [top]

Was in on Sunday and had Great Food and Good Service. All 4 of us will be coming back again and telling our friends about the Lovely time we had there.

Carole - 21:48, Monday 7th October 2013 [top]

Went for my birthday and it was a magical experience. The place reminded me of Aladdin's cavern, the food was beautiful to look at. And my young niece and nephew were so fascinated with the opera singers that they went up and danced with them. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Solera - 20:30, Sunday 22nd September 2013 [top]

Was there last night, that makes it the 6th time we have been! I recommend this place to everyone I know! I really cannot fault it! Service amazing! Staff are polite.. Cannot do enough for you and food it excellent! There was a mistake with our bill however as soon as my dad pointed this out it was quickly amended and they could not be more sorry! To be fair the poor boy was new and panicked!! However credit where credit it due and this place it faultless! Booking a hen night here soon! Canny wait xxx

Kelly smith - 19:21, Sunday 22nd September 2013 [top]

Anyone visiting London must have meal in this gorgeous restaurant.

I made reservations on the recommendation of a friend, for my mothers 60th.
We came here on a Thursday evening, we were running late due to London traffic. I called up and the staff were very flexible and this was not a problem. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff. The meal was one of the best meals I have had in a long time.

I cannot fault Sarastro at all

We had visited this restaurant over 10 years ago and had always wanted to make a return visit. This weekend 15 of us celebrated together and we weren't disappointed.
The staff were attentive, the food was really good and the surroundings whilst a bit tired and dated were fun and helped to create a good atmosphere. We will go again and everyone said how much they enjoyed the Sarastro experience.

Liz and Party - 07:49, Wednesday 26th June 2013 [top]

I came here for the first time in June 2012, and it was a completely unique experience! The place is fabulously opulent and the food delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Roy Regan - 21:05, Sunday 3rd February 2013 [top]

Wow! Who need's theatre after Sarastro. Shared an opera box for a birthday and had a great time. Somewhere as high profile as this could so easily let you down on food or service but it was faultless and friendly. Thankyou Sarastro.

Would and do recommend .......

Maggie Fenton - 10:55, Monday 15th October 2012 [top]

Our friends booked this restaurant for the four of us, and we got a 'box'. The restaurant was laid out like a small theatre - tables in 'boxes' above tables on the ground floor. Very cosy and interesting - seemed full of memorabillia and the walls had interesting graffiti on them - the toilets were definately adult only!! All done in a tasteful way. After meal cabaret on the Sunday we visited was OPERA - a fantastic string quartet with a touch of humour followed by two opera singers who sang to the audience around their tables.
