Chino Latino - London
Off the beaten track, but worth itHad been for a business dinner - excellent large square tables suitable for groups, and the food sharing helps get everyone involved. It was so nice I went back for a romantic dinner with my other half! Cannot recommend the scallops enough, they were fantastic! And the dessert from the tasting menu is h-u-g-e.23/04/2013 00:00:00Very tasty, good quality foodChino Latino is a good place... stylish and sophisticated with a nice menu.
Everything we ordered went down well... my black cod was delicious!
The wine we ordered was also very tasty.
Only complaint was the price-tag... it does seem just that bit OTT for the portions.20/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent for a hotel, but...I wouldn't go here if I wasn't staying at the hotel although the decor is trendy and sweeping. I think the bar/lounge is equally chic at night but the location is not ideal for short London stays. The food was alright, but the service was much better.04/04/2013 00:00:00we had amazing experiencewe had amazing experience with Chino Latino. Sashimi and sushi were very fresh and yammie. good wine selection. nice atmosphere. very friendly staff22/03/2013 00:00:00With the 30% Toptable offer,With the 30% Toptable offer, Chino Latino is an excellent option for foodies. There is no separate "discount" menu, or smaller serving sizes, so you are ordering from the a la carte menu with a substantial reduction. Great food, attentive service, and at a reasonable price. Can't beat it!!07/03/2013 00:00:00I go here a lot. Love it!I go here a lot. Love it! Great Japanses fusion food and a fab bar too.28/02/2013 00:00:00The overall ambience is brilliantThe overall ambience is brilliant being both very welcoming and relaxing. The tasting menu was most enjoyable and in particular the shellfish and fish dishes which were cooked to perfection. It was apparent that the base ingredients, used for each dish, were of a very high quality. The use of spices was very well controlled and balanced and thus they did not overwhelm but in fact tended to enhance the natural flavours of the ingredients. I will certainly eat here again and it is a great aspect of this comfortable hotel.24/02/2013 00:00:00The restaurant and atmosphereThe restaurant and atmosphere is great and I would certainly go again.23/02/2013 00:00:00Consistent!When I want a flawless experience, I go here. As good for lunch as dinner with a friend or group. One of London's finest Japanese food experiences. The fresh wasabi is quite unique.22/02/2013 00:00:00Sublime foodWe loved the food here cooked so well and presented perfectly. We were on an anversary date and at the end they brought special chocs and a happy ANIVERSARY note in chocolate. We would only change one thing, slow down the speed fishes come out16/02/2013 00:00:00lovely food my fav2Nd time eating there went back to the hotel just for the dinner sushi and dim sum my favourite food cant go wrong its perfect x15/02/2013 00:00:00Really was surprised at theReally was surprised at the quality of food coming out of the kicthen13/02/2013 00:00:00Staff made it a great night!We came here to celebrate a special night and I called a few days ago to explain that to the staff. They made the effort to decorate the table and congratulate us when we arrived which i thought was very nice. The staff were just awesome and often came around to check if everything was ok. The place is also very nice and intimate and a great setting for any occassion. The food was very good too...especially the dessert platter! Amazing! We will definitely be going back soon.09/02/2013 00:00:00steak heavenWent to London with my girlfriend for my birthday. The restaurant was lovely and the ambiance was very classy and trendy.
We both ordered the steak that comes served on a bed of hot rocks. It is without doubt the best steak we have both eaten EVER! It has to be experienced in person. I don't think that steak will ever be topped anywhere. Thank you for a great evening.09/02/2013 00:00:00Service , ambience, styleService , ambience, style and food all excellent. very helpful and pleasant staff smart and yet relaxed and comfortable dining experience. We were a family of four and although didn't feel tempted by children's menu we felt very welcome ,09/02/2013 00:00:00We love Chino LatinoWe have been to Chino Latino many times and absolutely love it! The food is amazing, the service is courteous but friendly and the ambience very pleasant. We highly recomment it. Try the spicy squid, the prawn tempura roll and the beef on hot rocks (with french beans). They are mouth watering!25/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent food! Good ambience.Went here for Saturday dinner, the food was awesome, but I think the ambience has a bit too hotel restaurant feeling. I think this restaurant would hit it big with better location and little improvement with the decor.11/01/2013 16:00:00New Year's Eve DelightIf you're looking for a new experience, try the sharing taster for two - beautifully presented, delicious food; the flavours got better with each course. The highlight was the dessert, exquisitely designed. We decided that this was a fantastic final meal to eat in 2012. Would certainly recommend for a special occasion.30/12/2012 16:00:00NYE DinnerI booked the four course set menu and was very happy with the quality of the food and value for money. I am a fan of Japanese food and everything was well presented and delicious. Portion sizes were perfect and both my boyfriend and I were satisfied with all courses of our meal. The bar has a lovely atmosphere and has a great selection of cocktails that we enjoyed before we were seated for dinner. The restaurant is located a short walk from Vauxhall Station and was the perfect place to view the NYE fireworks after dinner.30/12/2012 16:00:00Exciting, inventive and delicious!We had a range of dishes, sashimi was very fresh, excellent dim sum, great wine and outstandingly inventive desserts29/12/2012 16:00:00The food was very good, exceptThe food was very good, except that vegetarian options could have a bit more variety. We ordered a vegetable Thai curry and were a bit disappointed that it only had aubergines and no other vegetable in it. They have great cocktails and drinks. However without any discount offer the value is not outstanding.26/12/2012 00:00:00Christmas Day dinnerEnjoyable meal for a special occasion! Service was excellent with many choices.24/12/2012 16:00:00absolutely delicious!The service was as incredible as the food. The whole experience at Chinos made the whole stay perfect: delicious food and outstanding service.21/12/2012 16:00:00Sushi Sexyagain, they nailed it, we diverted from the set menu this time and ordered for our friends who were blown away by the food and service...
we used to go all of the time but moved away, we are now making all sorts of excuses to stay for the evening and go to Chino...13/12/2012 00:00:00Chino Latino opposite ParliamentWhat a find, food was served amazingly.
So amazing we took photos of the presentation. The Park Plaza Riverbank is a posh, sumptuous hotel. If the rooms and service is as good as our experience in the restaurant then bring your friends.
Our waiter was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, assisting us at every opportunity. The staff here made the evening very special. My compliments to the chef also, as the presentation was exquisite. Truly a treat to be repeated. Thank you. Recommend you to my discerning friends.15/09/2012 00:00:00Always good!We have been to Chino Latino many times and we absolutely love it. We now know the menu quite well and tend to always order the same dishes. We definitely recommend the sirloin on hot rocks with the French beans as a side. Pecking duck and fired squid are also very good. The waiters are really firnedly without being intrusive and the ambience is pleasant and relaxed. Good value with the 25% offer. Recommended.04/08/2012 00:00:00Love it!We've been to Chino Latino many times and we always enjoy it. The food is outstanding (we have found our favourite dishes and always end up ordering the same things!), the service friendly and polite, the ambience really nice. It's good value with the TT offer, maybe it would be a bit too expensive without. Recommended.08/07/2012 00:00:00Very niceThe food was very good however I couldn't quite see the the 'fushion' aspect to the dishes. Still very nice though26/06/2012 00:00:00Enjoyed a fabulous meal atEnjoyed a fabulous meal at Chino Latino. Although all dishes ordered from the inventive and extensive menu were terrific, a special mention must go to the Japanese-style medley of mushrooms - absolutely superb. The service was really friendly and warm - we were unable to stay for pudding and were touched to received a little chocolate gift to take away to mark our anniversary. Although Chino Latino is not a cheap night out, we felt that we got really good value with the 25% off deal. The food is really quite different from the norm and it's worth paying a little more. We'll definitely return.25/05/2012 00:00:00
