The 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.
Great with the deal
Chino Latino's food is exquisite, the service is charming and the restaurant is very smart. But it's pricey! With the deal just about OK.
We were staying at the hotel for my fiances birthday and booked a table for the evening. The service was great and they catered to our vegetarian diet. They also gave us discount as we were staying at the hotel which was a nice bonus. We had a lovely meal and thoroughly enjoyed the food.
Exciting, inventive and delicious!
We had a range of dishes, sashimi was very fresh, excellent dim sum, great wine and outstandingly inventive desserts
I 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.
New Year's Eve Delight
If 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.
Excellent 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.
We love Chino Latino
We 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!
I love Chino Latino, its one
I love Chino Latino, its one of my favorite restaurants in London. This time we went for my graduation dinner, and again it was perfect. Plus we got 30% off the bill! Can't ask for more :)
we always take friends here as the food is astonishing for sushi lovers and equally caters for meat and vegetarians with lots of options...
the bento boxes at lunch are fantastic and evening dinner is superb...
dont be out off that its in a hotel, its unlike any normal hotel kitchen, simply superb!
Service , ambience, style
Service , 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 ,
Went 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.
Staff 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.
Really was surprised at the
Really was surprised at the quality of food coming out of the kicthen
lovely food my fav
2Nd time eating there went back to the hotel just for the dinner sushi and dim sum my favourite food cant go wrong its perfect x
Chino Latino a lovely restaurant
My girlfriends and I enjoyed a lovely shared dinner at Chino Latino's. The Black Cod was outstanding and we shared several other dishes including mixed sashimi, wasabi prawns and chilli squid which were all very delicious and cooked to perfection.
With a good wine list and a great selection of desserts made for a great evening out.
There is also a great cocktail bar there too for before and after drinks.
I will definitely be returning to this restaurant and recommending it to others,
We 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 out
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.
The restaurant and atmosphere
The restaurant and atmosphere is great and I would certainly go again.
Nice venue but not cheap
My husband and I booked Chino Latino on a Saturday night with the special offer. We found the service very good and liked the atmosphere of the venue (despite the location that may seem odd to many). The food was fine but not exceptional. The dessert platter is however indeed worth a try. Like most pan-Asian restaurants, it is not cheap.
The overall ambience is brilliant
The 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.
The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere we where celebrating a birthday so they added a lovely touch at the end good experience overall!
I go here a lot. Love it!
I go here a lot. Love it! Great Japanses fusion food and a fab bar too.
With 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!!
Chose Chino for a lovely dinner with my girls - and it was like Mary Poppins - Practically Perfect in Everyway!
A well-kept secret, ready for glory
Tucked away in a hotel on the South Bank across the road from the river, this establishment has yet to get famous locally. We live just ten minutes walk away, but no-one in our apartment building had yet eaten there. It deserves more fame!
We enjoyed, amongst our starters, the classic Crispy Duck, nicely presented. Our mains, Barramundi parcels with seared asparagus, and a signature dish, sirloin steak on hot rocks, were outstanding.
The welcome and service were friendly. Our waiter was however inclined to disappear from view for long periods on a far from busy night. His failure to apply the discount to the bill might easily have earned a rebuke. But my mood had been too well-warmed by the food.
Yes, we'll go again, quite frequently.
Another good meal at Chino Latino
We have used Chino Latino on a number of occasions and it never disappoints. The food is very good with an excellent menu to choose from. The service is friendly & attentive without being pushy. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
we had amazing experience
we had amazing experience with Chino Latino. Sashimi and sushi were very fresh and yammie. good wine selection. nice atmosphere. very friendly staff
Took my wife out for dinner at chino Latino.she absolutely loved it,the food was fantastic ,the service was very good. Would highly recommend this place to anyone
Excellent 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.
Very tasty, good quality food
Chino 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.
Off the beaten track, but worth it
Had 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.
One of the best
I love this place. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Delicious but pricey
We went for a birthday and couldn't fault the quality of the food. The price felt a little high considering the lack of ambiance but it was definitely an enjoyable evening with top quality cocktails and sharing dishes.
The staff at Chino Latino are amazing, very helpful. The food is some of the best we have had in London. Never a disappointment.Wines as ever very good. We were in the "Pop up Restaurant" on the 1st floor as the main one was being up graded. Fantastic views of the River,which really added to the evening.
Delicious food and great service
We ordered that tasting menu as this gave us the chance to try different things. Food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The dessert platter was a real highlight. Staff were very attentive. Beautiful leather chairs and lighting. Would recommend and go again.
Fantastic tastes, completely new experience and one we'll never forget, thank you
Excellent food as always.
We have eaten here a few times now and every time is wonderful.
Really good service and all
Really good service and all my wishes was respected
Beautiful walk along the river, was a bit nervous to see it was in a hotel, but once you went inside it didn't seem at all like a hotel restaurant. Staff was exceptionally attentive and restaurant decor was beautiful. Bento boxes were delicious.
I have visited Chino Latinos about 20 times and never does it disappoint. I used to visit the Nottingham restaurant A LOT (they even gave me a loyalty card!) and since moving to London and visiting the one by the embankment I am still a huge fan! The food is always beautifully presented and the staff are very pleasant and attentive. Having travelled the world and being a huge foody, this restaurant is certainly in my top 5 for service, food and drinks. Cocktails are lovely and food delicious especially the fish. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.
Excellent food and service
They never disappoint. The food, service and ambience were all perfect. My favourite restaurant in London.
Stunning food as usual and
Stunning food as usual and excellent service. It's a pleasure to fine at this restaurant and I'm glad to see that it remains very popular even mid-week. It's by far my favourite restaurant in the area.
A lovely evening!
We ate here and had an absolutely lovely evening! I made this reservation for seven people for my friend's birthday and the taxis were ordered ended up never showing up to take us to the restaurant. I called the restaurant and they were VERY accommodating, even when we ended up being late. Our server was very perceptive to the group's needs and the evening was very smooth. The food was very unique and delicious! Thank you all for such a lovely evening- my friend said it was her best birthday ever!
Early Sun dinner
Booked for 6pm after visiting the Lowry exhibition at the Tate - 8 people, 4 kids/teens. We had the Bentos Menu available 6-7pm (steak&chicken) and kids menu. Bentos comes with veg tempura and rice - beautifully presented, fussy teens tried everything! Great food, attentive staff, teens very impressed. Sat at a huge square black table on a dias - dark and sophisticated decor. Cost £88 for 4 - bottle of wine and soft drinks . Very pleasant - would definitely return.
I used to live next to Chino Latino back in 2010 and it was my 'local' bar/dining place. I've moved to East London and I still go to Chino Latino as I can't find a restaurant as good and different. I love the cocktails at the bar and the food is always outstanding! I've celebrated a couple of birthdays there and my guest have always left with a great impression! I recomend this place with my eyes closed! I love it!! :)
A great night out for my husband's
A great night out for my husband's birthday. Food was fantastic and our waitress Anette was warm and friendly. Will definitely be back
First time at Chino Latino
Our first visit will definitely not be our last. Everything about the experience was fantastic- from the excellent service from our waitress Annet to the marvellous food we were served. We chose the Chinese taster menu for 2 and we were not disappointed. Several dishes in small but delicious portions were served at intervals and each one was delicious. Could not fault anything but I have to say that the desert was the best presented dish I have seen. Fresh fruit, ice cream, cheesecake, sorbets, all laid out beautifully. It was a sight to behold. Main course of steak and black cod was amazing too.
Altogether a wonderful experience which was enhanced by the superb range of cocktails. They were fantastic. Ask for the coconut dacquiri - fab!
Best umaboshi I've ever had
It's a terrible name, but everything is else is brilliant. The staff are so helpful and friendly, and really know the food well. We've come here lots of times (aided by tastecard and other offers) and if we could afford it we would come much more often. The food is superb and the atmosphere so relaxing. There's a little bit of theatricality with some great sizzling dishes but mainly everyone spends the whole meal talking about the fantastic food. Now where can I get a recipe for hot yoghurt cake?!
La déco du restaurant est
La déco du restaurant est sympa; les plats servis sont vraiment goûteux et originaux (j'ai adoré les Hamachi taquitos et les Marinated blowtorch salmon nigiri), les produits de qualité, la présentation est excellente. Le service est très qualitatif également; nous avons passé une très bonne soirée entre amis.
