SquareMeal Review of Lucky 7

‘It really feels just like an American diner', says one fan – so Tom Conran's bijou eatery must be hitting the mark. Everything from the metal napkin dispensers to the green-leather booths, veneered tables and neon signs aims for kerbside US cool, and an all-day offer of pancakes, breakfast burritos and high-stacked sandwiches says it all. The punchy menu promises full-on American indulgence, whether it's a plate of huevos rancheros (fried eggs, chorizo hash, tortillas, beans, guacamole and salsa) or an Aberdeen Angus burger – the green-chilli option with cheese is greasy-lipped guilt food. The sight of genuine ice-cream sundaes and floats should encourage the odd ‘yee-hah', with stateside beers increasing the chances you'll say it loud. Meanwhile, milkshakes and US cereals (Lucky Charms, anyone?) make it a safe bet for kids, too.

We started our day at Lucky 7 for a hen do yesterday and had a fab time. The food was so good, staff were amazing (with both helping me organise and service on the day) and the portion sizes were huge!! Definitely helped line our stomachs for a full on day. We finished off with some classic & strawberry margaritas – it was a perfect start to the day!

Just had a fabulous brunch at Lucky 7. I say fabulous because service was excellent, food delicious and unpretentious, atmosphere super relaxed and price extremely reasonable. It was fun to go to a low key place, eat good ‘home cooked’ comfort food. It really felt like a US diner. I highly recommend the place for brunch. i heard it is also great for mexican food and burgers will have to try that out soon.

Love love love this place! Went as an alternative to GBK after an evening at the Electric. You can bus it there on the 7 as its a bit of a walk at night and in a weird location (nearest tube Westbourne Park). Great food, buzzy atmosphere makes it worth it though. We had the burgers – looked small but were the right size without being a glutton. Onion rings are properly deep fried rings rather than the BK variety – very piggy to eat alone but just right to share. Chips are standard fries but a decent enough portion. The guacamole was massive and does taste authentic enough for you to eat it alone! Boyfriend had the chocolate milkshake which was deliciously creamy – a dessert in itself. I like how you could have it normal, very creamy, thick etc…! Whatever you fancy. We were too stuffed for pudding but ive heard the pancakes are great (only till 5pm unfortunately!). They also offer home made apple pie, pecan pie etc etc… Its pricier than GBK which is the only comparison to the type of food i can give – this all cost about £36 with service – but its definitely different and has the right cool retro feel to it – only 8 booths so prepare to wait on busy evenings – we got there for 9 and there was 3 booths free – by half 9, it was full so i guess youd need to share…but well worth it – open till 11 i think during the week so definitely going to my late night point of call. MUCH better and more relaxed than the Oak nearby!

This place is perfect for a hungover brunch. The burgers are very nice and so are the onion rings, but what you really want to try here are the pancakes (fluffy & great to share) and the huevos rancheros with their very very good guacamole. Everything tastes homemade and authentic and it's a fun place for kids too. You can't book a table and might be forced to share a booth but the buttermilk pancakes are worth it.
