    The food was nicely cooked. However, it was expensive - we ended up paying more than we often pay for a meal in central London which was not what we had expected in Amersham. Main courses were between £20 and £30 and side orders were over £10. Portion sizes were generous, but it would have been better if the waiter had advised us of this, and given some guidance on the amount of food we ordered as we could not finish everything (unusual for us). We were not happy at all with where we were sitting. We had a small dog with us and were told that it was fine to bring him and that we could have a table in the bar rather than the main dining area (there were 2 separate dining rooms in addition to the bar). The bar turned out to be an empty room with a space where the bar-tender made drinks. There was one other couple all evening. Getting a waiter's attention was not possible as they were busy in the other rooms. We had to rely on them coming to check on us (which they did occasionally). The room lacked any atmosphere. Overall, although the cooking was fine, it did not feel like the indulgent treat we had hoped for. We have eaten in Atul Kochar's restaurants in London where the whole experience is a delight. Sadly, this was not the case at Hawkyns where we felt like we were stuck out of the way in a room lacking any style or character. It was not worth the rather large amount of money that we paid ....

    Excellent meal at Hawkyns in Amersham. Staff were very friendly, attentive but not over the top. Kitchen staff provided a lovely and very tasty 3 course meal. Perfectly cooked scallops and chicken to start. Main meals of Butter chicken and salmon were sumptuous. Bread & butter pudding "Atul" style was heavenly and the chocolate bomb, as always, so decadent. Respect to the kitchen staff. Thank you all.

    We've been coming to this restaurant for some time now and we are rarely disappointed, However, the last couple of times the service has not been great and on our recent visit we were brought our bill before we were ready and told we had to leave because the restaurant was closing.In our opinion a restaurant of this quality should really wait until the customers are ready to leave.

    Expected something a little special, given Kochar reputation. Two good paneer dishes, one a starter, one a main course. Others OK. Overall felt slightly overpriced - £60 per head 2 courses without much drink. Not the greatest ambience - I remember the space as a meeting room! What really dampened things at the end, however, is that it took 7 attempts involving 2 machines and 3 cards in order to get the bill paid - transaction void, transaction void, transaction void etc. We were a family group - could have been quite embarrassing, had it been a business event.

    Really let down by service. We waited an hour before our first course and had to ask for our cocktail which was part of the taster menu. We had to skip a course as it was so late by the time we got to it and they knew we weren’t happy but didn’t deduct anything from the bill and still added on a service charge. Real shame as the food was lovely.

    Pricey. Nice food, service has improved since our last visit, but a little slow. Biryani, naan and paneer was great, mixed grill ok.

    Booked for a birthday lunch and the staff, food and setting were all fantastic! The staff were very attentive and friendly making us feel very welcomed and kindly supplied a mini dessert as a birthday treat. Superb lunch menu coupled with a fresh Sicilian wine - will definitely return.

    Overall disappointing experience. The food was really enjoyable however service really let the restaurant down and meant pricing seemed unjustified. There were 4 of us that dined in the restaurant that was at medium capacity. I was given a menu with chutney smeared on it and crushed poppadoms inside. We asked about a good wine paring with the food we’d ordered and they had no idea. During the starter course a waiter started to take all of the dishes away, however I was still eating. Mid mouthful and with cutlery in my hands, the waiter asked if I had finished and took my plate away. When it came to the bill they had added over £55 worth of additional items (multiple more rices & side dishes, and not just one portion it was more than 3 of each item). This was clearly not a mistake as there was an obvious line between our correct bill & additional incorrect times being added). For a meal that costs roughly £100 per person the service is disappointing and I wouldn’t return based on alternative restaurants in Amersham area.
