SquareMeal Review of Temper City

Bronze Award

Temper Soho opened to rave reviews in 2016, so we’re not surprised that BBQ-loving chef Neil Rankin has produced a sibling site in City development Angel Court. Next door to Coya, this much-larger Temper sticks to the meaty formula, serving up a range of tacos and flatbreads to share.

The name refers to Rankin’s commitment to tempering his meats, whether it’s Essex beef, Yorkshire pork or Welsh lamb. Take your pick from a high-octane cuisine-hopping menu that runs from must-order blowtorched mackerel tacos freshened with sweet white miso and mashed avocado to little bowls of Thai-style larb combining roasted rice with ‘burnt ends’ for a spicy clash of textures. We recommend ordering the full quota of sauces and finishing off with a gooey-centred cookie, baked in a cast-iron pan.

The wide-ranging selection of gins will entice booze hounds, but there are also soft options including a tart apple and grapefruit spritz. A pop soundtrack adds to Temper’s appeal, while enthusiastic, committed staff seal the deal at this thoroughly modern BBQ joint.

Great restaurant, good food and entertaining to watch the chefs cook in the middle. Good deals too. Staff lovely and really friendly. Good night out!


When your boss has no TEMPER!
12 December 2018  
So I booked this for a lunch on my boss' behalf. He was very hesitant about it, and wasn't keen about the menu. When the team had called to confirm the booking, it was in someone else's name, and this left him less than impressed. However, he came back in a much better mood (maybe because he was full with food!) but he enjoyed the food and service. One of the parties had left their phone, so the team went above and beyond by contacting me to let me know... This is definitely one I would recommend, especially as it's a crazy time of the year!
