Our second time at DSTRKT, and once again disappointed. On arrival the staff were great and attentive as we approached the bar. Whilst we waited for the last person in our party to join us we ordered drinks, and one of the glasses had lipstick on it. The glass was quickly changed. Our friend arrived we ordered a drink for her at the bar to be taken to the table. 20 minutes later no drink.
Our cocktails and her drink all arrived at once, which wasn't ideal. Some of the menu wasn't available which was disappointing. The waitress was pushy, making us order our starters and mains as one. The starters were good. Nice squid and the shashimi was average. Our mains came quickly after. The black cod was delicious however half way through eating the waitress came and took the condiments off the table and tried to clear our plates. Our plates were half full and we had only been in the restaurant 45mins!!
We managed to keep our food, however the dessert menus were dropped on the table at the same time as the waitress trying to take our plates. Five minutes later the waitress returned for our dessert order. Now, if it had been busy, we would have been more understanding, but it was maybe 1/3 full at best. I stacked the menus up and said that we would call her once we had finished our mains and were ready to order desserts. She froze, and started muttering in a different language, and persisted to do so with her colleagues right by our table.
Why we were shocked I don't know, but the bill was dropped half way through dessert with service charge! She presumptuously put the amount in with service on the card machine, at which point we complained and had to speak to the manager about why we didn't want to pay it. He was extremely understanding and removed it swiftly in fairness.
Another disappointing visit. Definitely won't be returning!! It's a shame as the food is good, but they fall down with their inconsistent staff standards and cleanliness.

Audriana was a great host, both friendly and professional and made for a very pleasant dining experience for us.

Disappointing for the price. Food was nowhere near the standard we have come to expect from dining at similar priced restaurants such as Tredwells and the OXO tower. Although the experience is very pleasant and trendy, the quality and standard of the food and service does not match this. The spring rolls, chilli squid and satay chicken in particular were very disappointing, I do not expect to be paying £35 a head for a meal I could get at the local Chinese! Wouldn't recommend and feel there is much better around, which in some cases would be a lot cheaper!

Great dining experience. Portions were bigger than I expected and very tasty. Only downside was part of my meal arrived late. The dessert was amazing!

Great atmosphere, very nicely decorated. Good selection of dishes in the £35 offer we booked. The only downside was the service and the staff could have been a lot more welcoming/friendly. We were rushed through each course but then had to wait ages to pay.

I dined here with some girlfriends to celebrate a birthday and I must admit I found the experience all rather disappointing. It is certainly a place that tries too hard and attracts a similar clientele. The 4 of us were sat on a large round table so we were all quite far away from one another to start when the DJ turned on loud music (at 8pm) so we couldn't hear one another over the table. Not exactly the inmate dining experience we'd hoped for.

The food was alright but nothing spectacular - not up the standards expected from reading the reviews.

The staff were pleasant and we enjoyed good service. I had asked at the time of booking for a message on a desert plate and that was followed-up on the night. Not a fan of having 12.5% service added as part of the bill. I expect this for table over 6/8 but not for a small booking.

DSTKRT - make you're mind up whether you're a club or a restaurant as dining here was over-rated.

If you want a "Made in Chelsea' themed night then this is the place for you.

Nice food, and interesting fusion combinations. The decor is quite interesting, and I'd enjoy going back.
