Description

Dinner Time Story is a multi-sensorial projector-based dinner show based around the culinary exploits of a diminutive animated chef.

Le Petit Chef - In The Footsteps Of Marco Polo is Dinner Time Story's latest dining experience. Set along the famous Silk Road, the experience takes diners on a journey from Marseilles to Arabia, India, the Himalayas and China, using cutting edge visual technology and effective storytelling through flavours, ingredients, sights, sounds and tastes. Featuring an innovative six course tasting menu, guests will each be faced with their very own 3D animated show, taking place on top of their tablecloth, right under their knife and fork. Throughout the evening, the food will be matched by wine and delicious cocktails, as well as clever props, soundtracks and scents, allowing guests to breathe the icy air of The Himalayas one moment and feel hot and heady in an Arabic souk the next.

Throughout the evening, the food will be accompanied by a bespoke wine and cocktail pairing by the TT Liquor bar team, drawing upon a decade's worth of cocktail experience. TT Liquor's expert mixologists have carefully curated a drink flight to compliment the vibrant flavours and ingredients of the menu, with each course entailing a different tipple.

Join them for an adventure every Wednesday and Friday night.

Overall I would say everyone had a really great experience. Hosts & staff were lovely. The experience of the projection and story telling was so much fun. Each course was presented beautifully and looked amazing. The food was good, although small portions, I felt full. Each cocktail was unique and very flavourful. I do agree, it would of been nice for people who werent drinking to have the option to have a paid a reduced price. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 12 Jan 2018

I booked a little over a month before I attended and had been looking forward to the event since even before the booking was made, and the evening did not disappoint. Pros: >Each course was very tasty, well put together and accompanied with a fantastic cocktail or wine. The flavours were really amazing. >Each course felt very tiny, but by the end of the evening, I left feeling satisfied and not still hungry (the main course is a good size). >The staff are extremely efficient, friendly and pleasant. Cons >The management of guests arriving early is not very efficient. We arrived about 45 mins before the start time but no one was too clear on where people waiting for the event to start should wait. After going up and down a few stair cases, we figured it out eventually. >Throughout the evening, I did feel a little rushed. Guests should be afforded a little more time to indulge and enjoy the amazing flavours being presented to them. >One of the drinks (with the second course) was extremely strong and sweet. Most people ended up leaving most of it - that being said, I still finished mine, so it couldn't have been all that bad. I did have a small issue with one of the dishes which I needed to report to the staff. They dealt with it immediately and after the evening had ended the manager came to apologise to me personally which I really appreciated. Mistakes happen, but its the way in which they are handled that sets restaurants apart, and they did very well here. Mano visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 12 Jan 2018

I was a little apprehensive due to other reviews I had read about diners' experiences, however, we had a wonderful time and it seems like they have fixed most of the issues commented on. The dining room was warm, guests were offered additional cutlery as needed and the wait staff were efficient and friendly. Food was delicious and we really enjoyed ourselves. Would recommend for something quite different! Vanessa visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 10 Jan 2018

Cute and quirky dining experience. Our projector was slow to start (we had the hourglass loading symbol displayed when the story had started all across the other tables) so we missed maybe 10 seconds of the start, however once this technical glitch was over, the story was projected well, albeit in a low resolution. Very cute to see Le Petit Chef on his journeys but would have loved to see him "cook" a bit more - luckily he "cooked" our desserts otherwise it would have been disappointing. The Amuse Bouche, Arabian, and Indian dishes were delicious and beautifully presented, as was the sorbet palate cleanser - theatrical and yummy! The main dishes of Cod and Duck were not to my taste however. The duck and its broth were tasty but it did not go with the coconut rice - plain rice would have better complemented the dish. While cod is a tasty fish and it was cooked well, the flavours of the broth perplexed me – too sweet and overpowering. It also did not go with the coconut rice. From the story I was led to believe that this was meant to be a Chinese course, so the coconut rice was really out of place here as those flavours were not reflective of Chinese cuisine at all. The cod dish reminded me of a bad Thai green curry??! The dessert with its generous flavouring of saffron and silky texture along with the delicious cocktails served throughout the meal saved the night. Service could have been more refined and quicker (we overran our 1st sitting by 20 mins). It is disappointing that these service issues have been highlighted in various reviews since October, yet when I dined in January I am still writing about the same issues. One change I would suggest is to make the non-alcoholic option cheaper. The £95 price tag for a 6-course meal (3 were canapes style, 1 was a palate cleanser, 1 main, 1 dessert) accompanied by 5 alcoholic drinks and some creative visual entertainment is almost bearable, however it is unjustified if you don’t opt for the cocktails and wine. Overall, a novel and interesting dining experience marred by less-than-amazing food and mediocre service. I am glad I tried this, but would not recommend to friends or family. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 05 Jan 2018

We had a lovely night with Le Petit Chef. Ignoring the power outage at near the beginning, we thought the theatre, design, and staff were great. But for £90 per head. Didn't think this was worth the price.

The food was pretty terrible. Arabic food is delicious, yet somehow the chef managed to ruin it by making some concoction that was neither Arabic nor edible. Same goes for the rest of the menu. The presentation was fantastic and little chef is adorable, but the food is seriously lacking in both quantity and taste. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 30 Dec 2017

Such a shame! We were really looking forward to celebrating and were very disappointed with the experience. Such a great concept and fab technology but the food wasn’t sufficient, the service was chaotic and seemed a little unorganised. In addition, two of my friends who are strict vegetarians were served a meat during one course which was really disappointing given the organiser had been fully briefed ahead of us attending. Overall we managed to have a fun evening out as we were a large group and celebrating a birthday but I recommend you save your money or have dinner before you attend! visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 22 Dec 2017

I had booked the dinner quite some time ago and was very excited to go. However, when I had read the recent reviews I was quite concerned and apprehensive. While, there could be some areas of improvement I very much enjoyed the experience. Most of the comments were over exaggerated and unfair. The concept is novel and entertaining, the staff were very friendly and keen to please. Whilst the individual quantities of the starters could be bigger we did not end up hungry and the quality was good. The show started five minutes after the scheduled time and it ran up to schedule. There were slight delays between serving everyone at the same time but that was not utterly disruptive to the experience. The price included five quite good alcohol cocktails, the food and an entertaining show, which overall we did not find too expensive. If you are looking for something different we do recommend you try this out. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 30 Dec 2017

Waite in the cold for 15 minutes before anyone realised there was no-one down there to meet us. Didn't answer the phone or the door bell either. Then we waited 40 minutes to be seated.

The concept is novel, we enjoyed the experience but not as much as we had hoped. It could be so greatly improved with a few things. Limited choice of drinks Drinks filled to brim with ice Children's palate not catered for well Venue - toilets grubby / electricity went off, not enough space to sit for pre drinks, lack of a simple ironed tablecloth spoiled the projector on the table. The clearing of the plates spoiling the experience of each course in their own individual boxes was still conducted at a station right upfront of the table. Better quality projection needed. One of the adult guests was served non alcoholic when he requested alcoholic. We became so concerned that it had accidently been given to the children we had to check all the children's drinks!. Perhaps also allowing clientel to purchase more drinks in advance would be a welcomed approach. Perhaps some hospitality training for a small proportion of the hostesses would not go amiss. Food portions small and food was mediocre and could be greatly improved. Obviously it is not based on the level of food versus the experience. The little comment books This is a lovely touch and very nice, however....Please check ALL books before handing out to people again re innapropriate comments and drawings. This is completely unacceptable in any establishment for a child to be presented with books that have innapropriate non monitored content. Experience value - Whilst the experience is novel, our party do not believe it is worth the £95 per person. I do hope that in the future there are learnings as it could be so superb and I have no doubt that they will take the feedback on board and improve. cwva visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 30 Dec 2017

The idea of the virtual Petit Chef at the table is fun and different, but some of the food doesn’t live up to expectations. Courses are small and that’s fine as there are enough of them, but the quality of some of them is mediocre (small fish hors d’oeuvre was bland, duck was chewey) Unfortunately both my husband and myself got ill during the night following our dinner, so it might be a good idea to check how food is kept and handled.

The food was absolutely delicious, loved the presentation very pleasing. We enjoyed the paired cocktails, about the animated le petit chef following the steps of Marco Polo it was such entertaining show and the whole idea of this projection mapping technology was very unique. Definitely will recommend this to my friends and family. I can say that we had pleasant end of this year by dinning at dinner time story london yesterday. saralona visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 30 Dec 2017

Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? It’s a lot of money to spend (and I would have felt ripped off if I’d only spent half the money) on minuscule portions of largely mediocre food, a total of about 15 minutes PlayStation-1-cut-scene tier animation and the sense of embarrassment you feel being exuded from those serving you. Most starters were at least ok (one was essentially a bag of nuts) but my main (tofu) was pretty tasteless- some white rice, some bits of tofu and too little thin green curry and coconut sauce (a confused choice for a dish meant to evoke China). I enjoyed the dessert, not for the chemical tasting creme brûlée complete with a soft, pallid “crust”, but for the time we spent moaning with our neighbours about the experience. The cocktails were largely nice however. Service is slow with huge delays between courses- surprising given the suspicion everything you are given is reheated. It all seemed a bit chaotic with many people having big delays for their main arriving- quite an achievement considering you have to choose in advance and have assigned seating. Everyone doing the serving feels noticeably stressed and you wonder if the second purpose of having to pay in advance (the first being to deny you the opportunity to refuse to pay at all) is to stiff the staff of their tips. It all looks nice for Instagram- but that’s all. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 29 Dec 2017

The second sitting we went for at 9:00 pm started one hour later. I could see why the earlier sitting overran. There weren't enough waiters so there was a noticeable wait between courses. The slick timing I expected for such a meal/show just wasn't there. Naturally, our sitting overran even more. So by the time the dessert was served, it was already 12:30 am! A few customers and two waiters had to leave before the dessert because the sitting was supposed to finish at 11:00 pm. They had to go otherwise they would have missed the last train home. A few customers were even falling asleep. The video projection worked better in the beginning with the waves. The animation after was not that impressive. The animation stopped completely when we were dinning, which further accentuated the wait between the courses. The cocktails were good. The portions from the starters to the main course were small. The food was OK. I was expecting something more unusual. For the main, I'd recommend the miso cod instead of the duck. The duck was nothing special. In fact, this was not really the extravagant culinary experience they made it out to be. It was more like a gimmicky theme park ride with slightly better food. Kids will probably love it sans cocktails. Don't go for the late sitting. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 22 Dec 2017

Such a unique concept but such a shame in the execution and venue. It’s was absolutely freezing. Almost all diners ate with their winter coats on. Some even kept hats on. The wine was therefore also freezing cold even the red. The dishes were presented well but one course was missing all the accompanying dips. When we queried this we were told the menu had been changed (to just remove the dips? I suspect they simply ran out. Even if not, you’d have thought they’d prepare new menu cards) The guy next to us was moaning a lot, which granted was annoying, but instead of having good grace, the waiter told him to “man up” when he complained about a spider on his glass. Which was funny, but not quite exemplary service. The cocktails were great. But the freezing cold venue spoiled it completely. Oh nd it also started late and didn’t finish until 11.40pm instead of 11 as advertised so we missed the last train. Considering the price and the high expectations they set, it was disappointing. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 27 Dec 2017

As regulars to going out across London my partner and I were really looking forward to this evening as a Christmas present to ourselves. I saw this in UAE and was very happy when I heard it was in London. As per instructions were told to arrive at 6:30 for booking and then sat there for 45 minutes waiting to be seated. We ordered a drink at the well stocked bar but got told we could only have wine or beer, then told can only use card to pay with but actually the lady had to go and find a card reader! The experience itself is in a back room on 2 long tables not how it portrays on the website. I was actually sitting closer to my fellow diners on my sides than my actual partner opposite. This makes it quite a challenge to hear what each other was saying during the meal. Now the food it self.... I'm afraid this really let the experience down. It was a few canapes and then a mediocre main course. This was basically an events company bringing in food and serving. Every course brought in was then cleared into it its correct plastic box with a picture of the crockery needed. Not the most professional service for that sort of money. Unfortunately the fire alarm went off 5 times while we were eating as well so hardly a night to remember. The drinks to accompany each course were probably the most memorable part of the meal but like I say for that sort of money I feel I would have been better going to the actual restaurant Story! Last time I was there I had something to rave about where as now I am left with disappointment. Our sitting ran over by 45 minutes due to the service etc so I am sure the sitting after us had a very late meal! You had a little book to write in after each course and it seemed a lot of comments were very similar to my feelings or though quite amusing reading other peoples comments! I would have commented but the pen/pencil was not provided so alas they get a review from my computer! visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 22 Dec 2017

We were really looking forward to this but the evening was a complete and utter waste of money and I would absolutely NOT recommend it. We got there for the 9pm slot and were told that the first service was running half an hour late so we want to the bar however at half nine after not being called we went back up and there were a number of fed up people waiting and were told it would be another half an hour.so back to waiting in the bar. Eventually we got in and were seated. There was little atmosphere the courses were basically a small bite with a cocktail..no one was told what to do with anything that accompanied the bites ie the shisha pipe and we were only told what to do with the cold ice as it became obvious that no-one had a clue. My main meal was forgotten about and I was ignored even though they had had plenty of time as this course was not served until 11.45pm and until my daughter complained very loudly that everyone had nearly finished and I was still waiting that they went and cooked something as apparently they had counted incorrectly and even then i did not get the king prawn on top and this was finally brought out at 11.55pm. As our last train meant we would have to leave at 12.05 this was just ridiculous as we didn't get to enjoy and then had to run missing out on the rest and presumably the bit where the petit chef actually cooks something for you. The manager promised that as this was obviously not good enough he would take our telephone number and call the following day. But of course this did not happen. So if you are looking for an experience as written up online or like the YouTube clips prepare yourself for massive disappointment. It is now obvious why no refunds are given and I have no idea how anyone has given a positive review unless they went with absolutely no expectations at all. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 22 Dec 2017

We really had a nice evening. The entertainment was a fantastic experience! De food wasnt that great.. and we also did'nt liked the fact we had to leave a review in a tiny book after each dish.. and having that tiny book twice.. at the end (I was still having my dessert.. the lights went on and we were asked to leave) because the next group was waiting.. The concept is great. But as it is now, I would not recommend it to others.. If you put more thoughts and attention to the details I really would.

Overall, an amazing dining experience! Most impressive was the use of 3D mapping to bring to life Marco Polo and his many voyages to different regions of the world. The attention to detail, particularly with regard to presentation, was also fantastic. Unfortunately, the food was inconsistent. There were some wonderful dishes; but also, some average dishes. In particular, the dessert lacked any real flavor (apart from cardamon) and the brûlée top was not executed properly. The cocktails were wonderful! On the whole, would definitely recommend the experience as the cinemation of it all was incredible. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 16 Dec 2017

We had a lovely night, the food was very tasty and the cocktails were fabulous. A lot of people complained that the portions were small but I thought that they were sufficient as the main meal is a decent portion, it's just it takes a while to come so everyone is starving by then. My only complaint was they were running over time and so the evening ended 45 mins late and very abruptly, we were practically thrown out. Also they put down the desert dish before the animation had finished and so you didn't get the full effect and the whole thing just felt really rushed. it was a really lovely evening, just such a shame it didn't end on a high. (Also personal opinion - the last drink would've been much tastier without the dry sparkling wine added). visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 16 Dec 2017

A bit bigger servings to cope with the large volume of alcohol would have been better, but overall we really enjoyed it, and the food was wonderful Klara visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 08 Dec 2017

We found the show and setting quite well done and inmersive! The service was very attentive and efficient. Very good cocktails and tasty starters, although it was very little food. The main dishes were nothing out the ordinary and a bit disappointing. We enjoyed the overall experience and would recommend it for if you're looking for a different kind of dinner (if you don't mind the food that much but the show) but would not be repeating a second time. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 06 Dec 2017

Fantastic 3D experience but the food tastes average, if could make it better, would be even greater. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 09 Dec 2017

I love the animation and food presentation. It was quite entertaining. Cocktail selections were great too. However the quality of food was so so, Small bites. Also I didn’t enjoy the way we got seated in long bench with no privacy and cramped. In summary, it was nice experience yet shouldn’t cost at that price. If it’s in range £40 then it was worth it, definitely not worth £95 sorry Mel visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 09 Dec 2017

Nice experience of dinner, but the food was not good as we think, especially the main. It is definitely not Chinese food, the worst rice I have ever tried. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 08 Dec 2017

Was mostly underwhelmed by the woman they had running the night who didn’t seem to know how it worked and sounded bored. The food was ok but not mind blowing and the whole experience was interesting but not amazingly well put together. For £95 a ticket I expected more. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 02 Dec 2017

The 3D animation was really fun and amazing. The food can be improved however with regards to the portion, and I was expecting more of the Petit Chef showing his cookery of various dishes than just the final dessert. Also there was a bit too much use of the herbs (e.g., for rice pudding), a classic custard rice pudding would be a better option visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 02 Dec 2017

The experience was really good. I thought the animations were fun. The food really could be improved, a few dishes were average at best. If you are prepared to accept this isn't about the food then it's a great night out. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 02 Dec 2017

I very much enjoyed the journey of the le petit chef. I liked the food and the drinks that each course came with. If there was one thing I would change, it would be to lessen the full-size alcoholic drinks that came with every one of the 6 courses. It was too much mixing of alcohol types. Perhaps it can be either smaller size drinks or only 3 full size drinks and a little more food in one or two of the courses that come out. Thanks again for a memorable evening!!! Looking forward to sharing the event with friends around the world. Can't wait till you visit Washington DC! visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 29 Nov 2017

A great experience and the food and drinks were excellent . Would thoroughly recommend Just need to tighten up on service a bit and serve people at the same time, a few times one of us was left waiting and had to ask for elements of the dish marc visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 29 Nov 2017

So, overall the experience was interesting. But for 95 pounds a head, I thought there were some major flaws. The presentation was lovely, I enjoyed the story for sure ... but the food could have been better. I appreciate the little nibbles and realise that there is meant to be one main course, which was probably the best, but the smaller bits could have been 'fresher', by this I mean, warmer when meant to be warm, and not feeling like it was just taken out of the refrigerator. The cocktails are what save this review, I would have given it an average 3 stars if not for the excellent mixology. A big disappointment for me was the rice pudding at the end, the once dish which 'le petit chef' cooks for you and it just was not good. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 24 Nov 2017

Really different evening and great idea for something different. Food was nice and flavoursome - portions maybe could've been a little more generous. Cocktails were lovely. Felt a little rushed at the end and was a shame that there was nowhere at the venue that we could've continued to have a few drinks and cocktails. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 24 Nov 2017

great show! however, the waiter was very clumsy as he spilled white wine from my hair to my back. Plus the food was not as good as i expected. the main dish (miso cod) was tasteless and the creamy sauce did not go well with it. came here just for the petit chef appearance.

The production was amazing, wonderful expression of art! The food was creative and good. Waiters a bit confused with dishes.

All apart from the main course, all the other courses are canape food, and only one mouthful each. The alcoholic drinks were more enjoyable than the food, and I do not even like alcohol. Very expensive to watch some cartoons while having this small meal. May be the petit chef was cooking with himself in mind. The customers next to us were planning to have some kebabs after. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 03 Nov 2017

The experience was great, something different to a normal dinner. I enjoyed the way the story connected to the dishes. The quality and presentation of the food was superb, and the pairing cocktails were also delicious. If anything could be improved, I would like the narrative to be louder as the diners were often talking over it. Also, to include a normal bar during dinner would be a bonus. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 03 Nov 2017

We visited on Oct 25th. Children were enthralled for two hours and happily tucked in to food that they had never tried before. The food quality was excellent. Only minor grumble was that children were charged full price but the accompanying drinks for them were very limited. Have already recommended it to friends and family. Would love to return. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 25 Oct 2017

I had an unforgettable experience here! The food was excellent, the show complimented the courses, and the cocktails were great as well. I also really commend the attention to detail in this show. All the props were very nice, and helped bring the show to life. The timing of the service was also done very well. The show was slightly delayed, but we were told that it was due to a technical problem in the prior sitting. We were offered complimentary drinks while we waited, so it wasn't much of an issue! My only suggestion would be to be a little more attentive with serving the beverages and making sure the customers have water at all times. Overall, I really enjoyed it, and highly recommend it.

We went to the opening night for this and had a great experience overall, however there were quite a few things that left us disappointed. The experience of the evening made up for most of them, but I would still like to share them as had I known beforehand it would've left me feeling less disappointed. Some issues were out of the team's control and handled very well, so I won't bother to bring those up and want to acknowledge the team did a great job in many ways, however there were several points that I feel should be addressed. 1) When booking it's not mentioned that you're seated with other people. I assumed we'd have our own table, and I wasn't very happy to find we were sat on one long table with everyone else who had booked for the evening. The table is wide, so while I was seated opposite my partner, every word I said could be heard by people either side of me at the least. It really should have been made clear about the seating arrangements prior to booking, as it lacked any intimacy in every way possible, which we'd really been hoping for as it was a special occasion for us. 2) Every dish except the main course was very small and canapé style. I expected something more substantial than what we were served. By the end of the night we were left feeling a little dissatisfied as even the main dish wasn't much. Please note though that the food itself was absolutely delicious (mostly). 3) We had to keep requesting water - a difficult thing to do when the servers and barman was trying to wait on a lot of people at once. They need to provide jugs of water for everyone to help themselves. 4) The dessert was the only dish I didn't enjoy and this was the general consensus from everyone. It was a disappointment to end the night on, as while they've tried to do something creative they've lost the entire point in trying to please a large group of people with flavours that work for the majority. In this case, unless you're a big fan of two particular spices, you aren't going to enjoy dessert. 5) One of the 'courses' was basically a palate clenser. While I enjoyed it, I'd rather have known it was 5 courses with a palate cleanser, as it made us feel a little conned. 6) We were given chopsticks to eat the 'main' course with, but it just didn't work with that dish unless you are great with chopsticks (I'm not sure how you cut meat with them..) - again a general consensus. Really they need to provide cutlery as standard, as I know some people were embarrassed to ask for it. 7) There was no real spectacle made of the end of the night - at the end of the evening we didn't really realise we'd just had the final course (see point 5 which made us confused about what course we were on) so it was a bit anti-climatic when they announced the evening was over! It would be nice if there was something exciting to end the night with. 8) I made a couple of special requests during the initial booking (they ask if you have any special requests) and these were not even acknowledged on the night. We also pre-booked the main course but they still came round the table asking everyone what they would like, which made it rather pointless to have taken the time to book in my main course the day before. My advice is not to rely on sending any special requests as clearly they're not being looked at. Please note that while I have the above criticisms, it was still an incredible experience and very enjoyable evening, and I'm glad to have gone. The team have done a great job. I'm providing the above to make people aware so that they're not disappointed on the night, and hopefully the team will take my feedback on board. I would still highly recommend the evening, but go into the evening bearing in mind the above to avoid disappointment! visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 20 Oct 2017

We were really looking forward to this experience. However extremely let down. The service was poor and slow, the food was cold. The graphics did not flow - or compliment the courses. The cocktails were horrible and were taken away before you had finished. Overall a very disappointing and over priced experience. visited Dinner Time Story - Le Petit Chef London on 20 Oct 2017
