    Insanely expensive for the quality. Really disappointed, also disappointed in myself for not refusing to pay the bill.

    Very nice food. A little bit confusion about our food, and whom had ordered it, but in the end, everything worked out and was really good. A bit expensive, but very good taste and service.

    We arrived for our 11am reservation and despite staff bustling around inside, they blatantly ignored us (they could definitely see us trying to get their attention through the full length glass windows). When I finally caught the receptionist attention, she just shook her head (implying it wasn’t open until 12??) and turned away without even trying to possibly explain that their opening time has been moved to 12pm, despite clear signage outside stating opening at 9.30am for breakfast. The other staff continued to ignore us the best they could.

    The restaurant is closed for refurbishment! Why did your booking site not know this? We only found this out once we arrived at the Buns and Buns so very inconvenient

    The restaurant was closed! Even after booking and confirmation. OpenTable had not been updated. We arrived there having walked to Covent Garden to see it under refurbishment. I’ve worked in hospitality before with open table. It’s not hard to update and block the days in the system. After being able to book and receive confirmation, it’s bad customer service! And then to ask me for a review about my experience. Come now, Buns and Buns you know better….

    Excellent food in the wonderful surroundings of Covent Garden Market. Very efficient and friendly table service with the waiter providing good explanation of dishes. Food came promptly and was all of a high standard. Really vibrant and fun place to eat with teenage kids. Seating was close to the entertainers in Covent Garden, providing additional fun and enhancing the overall positive vibe.

    The food was really good quality and tasty. But the restaurant is located in the middle of Covent Garden’s Market Piazza. This means a few things: 1) It is horrifically loud because shows are on so amplifier blasting speech and music next to you 2) It is horrifically expensive for what you get. A Diet Coke is £5. Two Bao buns are £14. We came out having almost spent £100 but really hungry 3) It is really crowded and busy and the staff were run off their feet. SO, despite us needing to get to the theatre no-one came to our table for 10 minutes. Then we couldn’t get hold of waiters, wrong stuff was brought to our table, and a beer took 20 minutes to come (arrived just after we paid our bill from which we had to remove it!). So, nice food but not a nice experience. A tourist trap.

    Over priced. Inattentive staff. Bland burger in the Mac bun. Too much mayo and not enough prawns in chilli prawn bun. Street performers and crowd, performer’s music loud & clashing with music in the restaurant. £6 for juice was madness. It wasn't even that tasty. Orange was somewhat bitter. Apple was nothing special. Should have gone to wagamama and/or five guys.

    Never doubt if you are looking for asian cuisine. Buns and Buns is the best. Great service and very tasty food. Try mac bun and chili beef egg on your next visit.

    It was a great experience. The entrance was well decorated. We welcomed by a manager straight away and seated. Service was good, food was amazing. My favourites were the Chilli Beef and Calamari. I would definitely recommend. There aren’t any restaurants in the area in this level of food and prices are reasonable.
