Goodman Mayfair steak grill British restaurant London

SquareMeal Review of Goodman Canary Wharf



There are plenty of steakhouses in London, but some readers say that Russian mini-chain Goodman sets “the benchmark for quality meat and top-level service”. This branch is less cramped than its siblings, with leather-upholstered banquettes, low-slung lighting and big windows combining to produce an industrial twist on members’ club comfort. Customers who come for “the best steak money can buy” are certainly happy to pay the price for meat that is expertly dry-aged on site, then cooked on the Josper grill. Seek out the blackboard (aka ‘the cut’) to find out what’s best from the ageing room – perhaps Nebraskan USDA, Suffolk Wagyu, Australian Angus or Scottish Hereford. Building a meal around a vast steak takes restraint, but there’s always room for the tiger prawn tempura or lobster and corn chowder. California looms large on the “magnificent” wine list, which is also big on by-the-glass options and showboating larger formats.

Possibly the most over-priced restaurant I have ever been in for what you get. Steaks priced at 35-£50 per person without vegetables and exclusive of service are just plain silly. Most of the starters are just plain boring too – OK for people who want a simple meal without much to stimulate the taste buds. The wine list is equally outrageous: £40+ for standard supermarket quality wines. A place for greedy diners with more money than either good taste or sense. A 3 course meal with half a bottle of wine, coffee and service will cost you £75-£100 which is totally ridiculous for a rather ordinary steak house. Would be fine at half the price. Uncomfortable chairs and tatty surroundings too. Very professional staff.
