Excellent evening had at Circus,Excellent evening had at Circus, food, cocktails, service and entertainment all brilliant18/05/2013 00:00:00Loved it - price is nothingLoved it - price is nothing special but exactly what you pay for. Worth splashing the cash for.18/05/2013 00:00:00Something a bit differentA brilliant occasion with excellent food (and plenty of it) - highly recommend the blowtorched salmon nigiri and the fillet steak. Entertainment on the main table between courses and the place turns into a bar/dance floor later on, fantastic for a night out with the girls.11/05/2013 00:00:00Great food and entertainment.Food was really tasty and arrived quite quickly. The entertainment was amazing and got better as the evening went on.11/05/2013 00:00:00awesomeSecond to visit to Circus... This time for a special occasion so the pressure was on. Of course, the food and entertainment was exceptional. Those Fois Gras gyoza... Mmmmm! Waiter accidentally knocked over a glass of our wine, so we got a free bottle. Winner! You must go here.10/05/2013 00:00:00ExperienceWell organised with excellent entertainment and good food.
Initially felt main Circus choices were limited but server gave good explanations.
Could have been over spicy for some pallates.01/05/2013 00:00:00Fantastic EveningCircus really is a class act. Great food, great acts, and a really cool vibe to the place. The entertainment on the night was fantastic and was great to watch. Loved how the tables were cleared away at the end and turned into a dance floor. Had a brilliant night. Well worth another visit.27/04/2013 00:00:00excellent nightWe all had a great time. The staff and service wa excellent. Did like the entertainment too - fun and games. Different night out - expensive but worth it for the difference.17/04/2013 00:00:00Fabulous & FunSuch a great evening, entertainment is great & the service is a class!13/04/2013 00:00:00Great Show, Great Service,Great Show, Great Service, Great Food! An experience to be had.12/04/2013 00:00:00Fun and fantastic foodRead about The Circus in a Swedish magazine and booked a table for our weekend there. It was amazing, wonderful food, surprising elements from skilled artists during the evening, cool and friendly at once - we had a great time!11/04/2013 00:00:00amazing restaurantThe restaurant is amazing with the shows and the after party. The staff is really friendly and efficient . The food is good but a little over price.06/04/2013 00:00:00outrageously goodHad heard from a friend about the performances while you eat, and that is certainly unique. Was surprised to be so impressed with the food itself. Could stand on its own as an excellent Asian fusion place, but I guess the higher-than-expected price covers the entertainment. And that was very impressive. Would go back for a special occasion02/04/2013 00:00:00Lively atmosphere, the promiseLively atmosphere, the promise of something different, but would the food hold up? The answer was yes! Started wih the chicken and chilli dumpling - good but could have more hear. My partner had the squid, which was also good. We then had the two steak dishes. Both were good quality. The entertainment was a delight, 3 acts in the 2 hours we were there, al washed down with some good quality cocktails. Not cheap, but a fun night out. Will go again.30/03/2013 00:00:00amazingGood food and amazing show! We had a fantastic evening and we'll definitely come back.29/03/2013 00:00:00great but ecpensiveEverything was absolutely great - service, acts etc. The food was some of the best that I've had. If you go you have to try the beef and foie gras dim sum! But it is expensive. Not the place to go if you are on a budget!28/03/2013 00:00:00Great Fun Night Out - Delicious FooWe had a wonderful Asian - fusion meal, while being entertained in a quite spectacular way at the same time. The food was great and the choices were really unusual and interesting. Very beautifully presented dishes too. The Circus part of the night was spectacular, with everyone holding their breath in amazement a good few times. The acts were amazing and very impressive since they didn't have the space of a big top in which to perform - just a Covent Garden restaurant (full of diners!).
I wouldn't recommend this for a romantic night out, as it was very noisy, but for a great fun time - it was excellent.
Thanks Circus X28/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent Evening Great Fun!We first had drinks at the bar and there was a good selection of drinks and non-alcoholic drinks.
The food was very good, we decided to have a few starters to share, the highlights were the soft-shell crab tempura and the dim sum.
For main course I had the Chilean Sea Bass as recommended by our waitress, I am glad I did. It was wonderful, full of flavour with ginger and chilli, but the spices did not over power the fish.
The ambience was very good with a good mix of age groups.
It seems that everyone is there to have fun, even the staff, but they are very attentive and made sure that everything was ok.
The circus acts and singers were great fun and very good standard. We had a wonderful time as we danced the night away. Highly recommended!22/03/2013 00:00:00great evening outfor a restaurant with entertainment included, you may worry the food would not be up scratch but luckly here, ths is not the case. i have been twice and both times have really enjoyed my food and the cocktails - although careful as these can quickly rack up the bill. For me the portion was just right I can imagine some people leaving a bit peckish. The entertainment is good but service could be a bit more efficient.22/03/2013 00:00:00Went for a special occasion.Went for a special occasion. Awesome food, entertainment and ambiance20/03/2013 00:00:00Very Impressive Dining ExperienceIt was our first time dinning at circus and we were very pleasantly surprised; The food was absolutely delicious and really appealed to the foody sides of us with fantastic entertainment in the form of Cabaret and Acrobatics while we ate. Really provides some jaw dropping moments and there is never a dull moment - with friendly staff and lots of help with food details we were very impressed. The only downside is that the food portions are increidbly small for the price you are paying and you would think that paying upwards of 25-60 GBP for steak they could at least provide some sort of veg or side included. That being said the food was delicious and well worth a visit.19/03/2013 00:00:00Circus - very entertainingI booked Circus for my husbands birthday - so glad I didn't book stage table, our table was perfect, the acts were entertaining, and the food was amazing, just a shame it's only a 2 hour slot!!!16/03/2013 00:00:00Brilliant!We did not know what to expect and I think we would not have guessed it. The food was excellent, the entertainment brilliant and perfect service! A brilliant night out with everything under one roof.15/03/2013 00:00:00Great experience and amazing foodI went to circus on Friday night with a group of friends and from the moment I booked until we left I've had a great experience with circus! Their customer service is amazing, as is the food and cocktails! I would definitely recommend a night out at circus!!15/03/2013 00:00:00A lot of fun!Perfect Saturday evening. I had heard about the good atmosphere but was really surprised how good the food actually was too. A real escape from the world outside- very cool!09/03/2013 00:00:00Best. Restaurant. Ever.I took my wife to this restaurant on her 30th birthday. I had mentioned this beforehand in my booking, but had not expected any special treatment. As dessert came out we noticed it contained a lit candle and the fantastic waiter and one of the waitresses came over and sang Happy Birthday - a very nice touch!!
Our table was in a great area, just to the left of the stage. The timing of the food and entertainment is impeccable. The service was among the best we have ever received - including some Michelin starred places. The food was absolutely amazing - which was great as I am vegetarian and there is not always a lot of choice. The cocktails were delicious too.
My one tip would be to get there early though. It does get packed!!09/03/2013 00:00:00Great ambience, great foodPerfect for a birthday with friends of just a romantic dinner. I love the idea, and the show is good.05/03/2013 00:00:00Circuits great experienceFantastic show , delicious fusion food, good service and ambiance !
Do not be afraid of the noise!!!
But was a fantastic expérience !26/02/2013 00:00:00Really good funBrilliant lively atmosphere, we got to see 3 acts in total. Only downside was you only get your table for 2hrs (you can go to the bar after, but not a great view of the acts from there). Food was brilliant, so was service despite it being crazy busy.23/02/2013 00:00:00Ladies and GentlemenRoll up, roll up. If you are after a fantastic night, roll up.
The cocktails, food, service and entertainment were 1st class. I will definitely be back.23/02/2013 00:00:00Great meal and serviceWe went to Circus for our daughters 21st birthday, there were 6 of us altogether. The food was great and freshly cooked, service was excellent - they put candles onto my daughters dessert and sang her happy birthday! The circus performances were also entertaining. We decided to go a la carte and wished afterwards that we had gone for the sharing menu so that we could have tried more of the dishes! It was a lovely night out and I would recommend it.23/02/2013 00:00:00great treatthe restaurant dint cheap but the meal comes with great entertainment. the food was exceptional and well worth the money.20/02/2013 00:00:00Amazing evening.

Highly recommended for a romantic date, or any date, really!20/02/2013 00:00:00Great nightService was great, as was the food. Staff are very friendly particularly the young gentleman in the top hat! He was very funny and friendly, overall a good experience.16/02/2013 00:00:00Great entertainment and food!Went for anniversary dinner, and certainly lived up to its name...in a good way!

Lovely service and well presented courses, had a very enjoyable evening.15/02/2013 00:00:00Amazing performers, greatAmazing performers, great food and lovely atmosphere! Would definitely return soon.14/02/2013 00:00:00Out Of This WorldEverytime I go to the Circus Restaurant it is a new expeirence everytime. Food to die for an everytime you go reminds you why you went the last time. Truly amazing from the service, to the food, to the entertainment, to the understanding of true customer experience.13/02/2013 00:00:00Birthday Dinner!!!I attend there for my birthday .... wish we had better seat , as i did state this when making the booking , but overall had a great time wish I got to see all the acts but we only managed to see 3 which was great !12/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent FoodBeen before and food was mediocre, but all changed this time. Food was oriental style and excellent. The quality and service was first class. I had the chicken and chilli dumplings to start with and wow, they were good, followed by the fillet steak, equally as good! Waitresses were really helpful and the ambience here is superb. Had a really good night and will definately be back next time we are in London.
Taxis at that time of the night were a bit slow, but thats not anything to do with this first class establishment!09/02/2013 00:00:00LovelyThe service was brilliant and I would definitely come back again.08/02/2013 00:00:00Great attentive service fromGreat attentive service from the moment we arrived. 4 great acts, lovely food, cocktails and good wine list.07/02/2013 00:00:00Wonderful eveningI booked this restaurant on a friends recommendation for a birthday treat, we had a wonderful evening. The food was lovely the service was good and with the entertainment the evening was a memorable occasion.31/01/2013 16:00:00Party atmosphereThis is a great venue for a quirky night out. The food is good rather than outstanding but you don't go here purely for the food. This place has a real feel good factor. The acts were very good and as a package the evening is good value. We booked for 9pm so could keep the table for the rest of the evening. Not really a place for a romantic meal but more for a fun night out31/01/2013 16:00:00good ambience, good foodCircus is excellent for those wishing a chilled out evening with some entertainment that both enthralls and entertains. The food is excellent and although pricy you are paying to be entertained whilst you eat - the service is excellent, the staff quick to take your order (although not being pushy) and starters are delivered in minutes
The entertainment comes in short bursts so doesnt totally distract those who wish to discuss business or wind down aftetr work with a relaxing drink and some food with their loved ones.
Well recommended!!29/01/2013 16:00:00Loved every minute of theLoved every minute of the evening, took a lovely girl on a date here and was very pleased with the atmosphere created on night, tables are well placed so as to get a fantastic view of the performances and felt very comfortable all evening + the staff are very nice and wouldnt definately reccomend circus for a exciting and unique dinning experience.28/01/2013 16:00:00AmazingI must say if you LOVE a lively atmosphere with amazing food this is your place.24/01/2013 16:00:00Brilliant Night..I Can't fault Circus, the staff were helpful, friendly and 'gorgeous' as stated in their menu. My request for a good table due to the meal being for a special occasion was dealt with by management, we were seated just by the top table with brilliant views of all the acts, which were the highlight of the evening (I won't spoil the surprise!). Finally the food was very tasty and look great too. It even filled me up which isn't always the case! IThe staff knew what they were talking about and were able to help us order dishes that complimented each other, and they definitely did. The prices are what you would expect for this type of meal and experience, but it did come in cheaper than I expected!21/01/2013 16:00:00Wonderful experienceAlthough, were going there for the atmosphere and show rather than the food we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food which was of very good quality as well as the cocktails. We would definitely return although mostly for special occasions as this is not cheap.18/01/2013 00:00:00circusCircus was a great restaurant, amazing serice, food was good and the entertainment was outstanding. Our night flew by because we enjoyed it so much. The toliets take a bit of getting used to but add to the experience.09/01/2013 00:00:00
