Absurd Bird Soho - London Restaurant Review

Absurd Bird Soho - London Restaurant Review

Once upon a time, I was a very picky eater. So picky that my diet consisted of pot noodles, fried chicken and the odd peeled grape. 10 years later, my love for pot noodles has come to an end, but my love for chicken still remains. As for the grapes?...

Food was incredible! Service not so great. We were made to feel like a burden because we requested a burger with the salad on the side, the waitress asked if we wanted to order then walked to another table amoungst other things. Her overall attitude seemed not interested and no care for customers. When we received the bill there was a hefty £26 service charge which We don't agree with we believe tips should be voluntary and dependent on service. Would definitely visit another branch of Absurd Bird again as the food was amazing, but won't be returning to Soho again. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-05-18

Second time going to an absurd and it did not disappoint, the food is so good it makes me happy thinking about it Lool. We went for Monday Madness so it was a great deal. You can see your food being cooked if you sit upstairs which is quite nice and the manager (I assume) was nice. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-05-14

Absurd is pretty nice. The staff were friendly. The food was really good and I think their stand out is the wings! Buffalo, original, garlic Parmesan all delicious. The only issue I have is with the waffles used. The savoury waffle is just not great. It seems like this is a UK think. A sweeter waffle just works better. No need to reinvent an American classic.

Food was okay. My partner and I received good service from the waiters.. they were smiling and asking if everything was alright with our food. Food came quick. but the only downside is the place we sat was quite uncomfortable because we was near the kitchen area where the chefs kept walking in and out whilst we were eating plus the kitchen had a weird smell which kept me off my food a little bit.

Food & drinks were good. Wait staff weren't great - not very attentive, especially considering a) there's only a few tables b) the service charge is included on the bill. They weren't terrible, but it took them a long time to clear our plates and then a long time again to check if we wanted anything else. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-04-12

My girlfriend and I went to Absurd Bird Soho for a Lunch. On arrival we asked to move tables due to some loud customers at the bottomless brunch! The manager (Dawid) was able to move us and was extremely welcoming and accommodating for the entire meal. The food always lives up to expectancy and is one of a kind for chicken lovers out there. The customer service from Dawid and his staff was one of a kind too. Cannot wait to go back! Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-03-31

Bottomless brunch on a rainy Friday bank holiday was tasty and definitely bottomless. Staff were very nice and accommodating. The only critique would be the consistency of the spinach and artichoke dip, flavours were great but it was too liquidy and runny. I was also slightly underwhelmed by the size of the chicken waffle benedict. Would try them again but maybe go for just the chicken and waffle next time. :-) Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-03-30

Tasty food and good portions however there weren't any waffles so some people at our table couldn't order what they wanted! The waiters also weren't as attentive re: topping up our glasses compared to some other bottomless brunches I have been to, however we still definitely got our money's worth and the place had a good atmosphere and great music!

I thought - chicken wings were not as good as they had been on previous occassions- too much sauce - attention by waiting staff not the best. Had to ask for forks, plates, etc, and pretty much everything - cocktails were well priced but not best quality. - overall good value but enjoyed previous visits more Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-03-21

The chicken itself was very bland and had no flavour. I was appalled by the flavour of the chicken. I couldn't even taste salt beyond the batter. I would not recommend the wings buffet it is absolutely not worth it. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-03-21

Awful sadly. I was really looking forward to my meal, but unfortunately I left feeling very underwhelmed. Our food arrived stone cold and when i informed the waitress she looked extremely puzzled like she didn't know what to do. I had to ask her for a replacement meal which was a little awkward. The entire meal (buffalo burger and buttermilk chicken wings) was completely tasteless, we had to ask for salt and pepper to add flavour to our meals. Very disappointing.

Bottomless wings was as an okay experience. The wings were very average and we weren't able to taste every flavour as they had run out. The set up is a little cramped but the ambience was okay. Might go there again but definitely won't be buying their wings again. Customer service was decent. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-03-14

Last night, my boyfriend and I had a really bad experience at the ‘bottomless wings night’ at Absurd Bird, Soho. All you can eat isn’t really our thing but thought it might be fun considering our shared love of all things chicken! The bottomless wing deal is a rip-off, none of the staff really explained how it works but we think its that you can only have 8 of one flavour before you can try more. They are huge wings so by the time you have finished 8 you feel sick, because they all taste terrible. The buttermilk fried wings were literally dripping with grease and just tasted like deep fried flour. Not a hint of seasoning. The Buffalo wings were unpleasantly sour, so much so that we had to order ranch dressing to cool them down (which didn’t help). The garlic parmesan wings tasted like they just mixed the ranch dressing with some cheese. The sauce was way too thick and overpowering, and actually stuck my fingers together like wall paper paste. I finished my last bite hoping to find a hair or something that would save us from having to pay for what I can only describe as the worst meal I’ve ever had. The service was terrible, the two girls serving looked miserable and irritated by every customer, one of them couldn’t remember all 4 flavours of the wings and had to be reminded by my boyfriend. The whole experience lasted 25 minutes, and we were only there that long because we thought we should try and get the most of our money as I booked the night before and it wasn’t disclosed that you get charged the full amount if you cancel without 48 hours notice. We tried to leave a complaint when we were there but the waitress didn’t really understand our issues and was busy dealing with other customers. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-03-14

Good service and good food! The reason why this isn’t 5* is because of a bunch of drunk men at the table opposite were rowdy this can’t be helped at a bottomless brunch which kind of ruined the day for me and my partner but seems like the staff had no control. So if you go expect drunk mouthy people that’ll be more suited in a pub! Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-03-10

Food was good but the service was terrible. The table wasn’t ready at 7pm despite booking. It took 20 minutes for 3 beers to be served as the bartender was chatting up a girl at the bar so ignored the orders being printed out the till. No apologies when they came. The mains were delivered before the starters so we had to send them back. The food was really good - the waffles were great! But a mixed experience. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-02-27

I would give a 3.5 if I could. The staff were great but asked how we were doing a bit too often. Like at lot of restaurants it was quite dark downstairs and the music high so don’t go if you’re voice is timid lol. The Dirty pulled chicken was great just wish the waffle was hot.. the bbq wings were good but the fried wings lacked a bit of flavour(I guess coz it came really quickly). The mango daiquiri on its own was five star they didn’t scrimp on the alcohol 2-4-1 who could complain. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-02-14

Great food, incredibly well made. Wings were near perfect, but bland I’m afraid. Also the price is quite high when compared to similar competitors, however their offers and options do help ease the sting a bit.

our waitress was lovely, she looked after us really well - but there was no chicken wings or whole chickens.. very disappointing as we all wanted wings and two of my party wanted chicken. other than that it was great. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-02-01

Food was very tasty, would definitely come back. Only gripe is that the menu is extremely misleading - it advertises a 241 cocktail happy hour "all day every day" yet it turns out this is a promotion which you can't use in conjunction with any other offer...so despite the fact we had a 50% off food voucher, we weren't allowed the 241 drinks. Likewise if you came for the bottomless wings it sounded like you'd also be denied the happy hour. This seems pretty strange to me but the staff were excellent last night and in fact were generous enough to give us a round of drinks at happy hour prices. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-01-31

We went for the GBP10 bottomless wings, and the wings were really delicious. But honestly most people didn't really eat their money's worth because it was simply too much - I had 8 and was half dying at the end from the grease and fullness. The spicy wings was extremely spicy so be careful of that. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-01-31

Good value bottomless wings. Buttermilk fried wings were a bit dry and the Parmesan wings get sickly very quickly. But the buffalo, bbq, and xtreme hot wings were excellent. Good wings, great staff, will be back when they introduce Korean style wings! Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-01-24

Good food except Mac and cheese was cold Very cramped space with dingy decor and lighting Seats too low for table The nacho dip starter was great except some of the chips were stale! Nice cocktails If you’re unlucky enough to get our table location you’ll have the stench of a kitchen right next to you, low seats, draft from stairs and waitresses barging by

Very disappointing. I was really looking forward to this meal. We were on the endless wings offer and ordered the buttermilk chicken and the garlic chicken. The former seemed to have no seasoning or spices at all. Just plain batter. We honestly thought the chef must have left some ingredients out. I expected southern chicken style flavours. Then the garlicky chicken was covered in a very thick layer of garlic butter. So much so that it was just like eating butter. Carnage to eat in terms of mess and quite unpleasant and greasy. We had to scrape so much off... We didn't finish and didn't order any more wings. Instead we left early. I really hope this was just an off night for the kitchen or that these were not the best choices from the menu. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-01-17

Amazing food couldn't fault it and all came piping hot. Staff were very friendly and tried their best to give a good experiance. One thing i would say is its very small they should change location to get somewhere bigger. Then i wouldnt of been asked to leave when i had my table booked for another 45 mins.. if they want to keep it special and secluded they need to concentrate on the people in there not push them to go so more people can sit down. If they want a large amount of people they should get a bigger place. Overall though the food was good Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-01-13

We generally love going to Absurd Bird, its one of our favourite venues as the food is generally very good and the service and atmosphere is really enjoyable. However we wanted to put in a mention that this last time we went there we were quite disappointed. We ordered Fried Chicken and waffles (which is our fave!) and it arrived very quickly. The chicken and waffles were quite cold however, and personally I felt like the gravy didn't taste the same as it used to. Also the atmosphere was very loud and lots of screaming and shouting from a nearby group, which is fine as people should be having fun, we understand that, but we felt like it was a little over the top. They appeared to have taken control of the music for the night as well without considering the other customers. Overall I still think this place is great, which is why its disappointing if you don't get the usual great service. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2018-01-13

My friend bought a Groupon voucher for this. The place is very hard to find - I even used my sat-nav and still couldn't find it. The chicken and waffle was really dry and it was a bit too much and the place was crowded but it did have good staff though.

Absolute worst. Avoid this location at all costs. The food is perfectly fine, it’s the staff. It works take 30 minutes of my time to explain it all, but the people that work there have such an attitude problem that it will be what ultimately shits this location. After spilling a pot of sauce on my friend, the server simply walked away with no offer of help, nothing. When we spin to the manager, she didn’t understand what the problem was?

I had booked a table for 6 people at 7pm. They basically tried fitting us on a table fit for 4 people - we were quite squashed, however they were quite apologetic about this and did give us the option of sharing the booth area. Bar service was prompt and with Buy One Get One Free, we enjoyed the drinks, however apart from that, there wasn't anything too positive about my experience at Absurd Bird. We had to get our own cutlery, napkins and bottles of water as there wasn't much staff around and my friend had to ask several times for a plate to put his bones on - bare minimum service was received. The food itself wasn't too bad but won't really be in a hurry to visit again - diddn't bother paying the service charge! It's a shame as I heard positive things about Absurd Bird from others so was expecting better. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2017-12-20

I went to absurd bird with my friends for brunch on the weekend. I’ve been once before and loved it however, the menu has changed slightly and dessert isn’t included in the whole price anymore. As a table of 7 we were told we would have the half of a booth as another booking was coming and we were squashed into the space. I understand that it was a busy period but the staff weren’t as attentive, our mains came out with 20 mins to go until our booking was over and half of the mains were lukewarm. Overall what Absurd Bird offer is great - but during busy periods they need to stop over booking!! Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2017-12-16

It annoys me to only give two stars but the service was shocking. Friday night. Prime time. Various members of staff but none cared about service customers except their barman who eventually took our orders, made our drinks and also got the bill for us. When we arrived it took about 5 mins to seat me and my wife, menus were given and then the waitress vanished back upstairs to her mobile phone. After waiting 20 mins I went upstairs to ask if she would take any orders from us and she said she would be down shortly, 5 mins later the barman came to our rescue. The other waitress was too busy kissing and cuddling with her male friend at the bar. After 37 mins to be precise our drinks came and we ordered the food, by this time my wife just wanted to walk out. There seemed to be an arguement between manager and employee in the open at the bar about working times which wasn’t very professional and to be honest the whole experience was ruined. I will not be coming back here again. The barman needs to work for a better company as he was helpful. Disappointed because the food was quite nice but the service was the worst I’ve had.

We went for bottomless wings. We were advised beforehand to arrive promptly or 15 minutes early to make the most of our 2 hour slot. We therefore arrived at 18:50. We weren't seated at our table until 19:10 and had nothing explained to us until 19:30. We were then told we could have unlimited wings and the deal came with fries. We ordered some dips to have with the wings too. The wings came fairly promptly with, no sign of any dips or chips. Nevertheless, we had some wings. We had 2 lots of buttermilk and 2 lots of buffalo. The buffalo wings weren't bad - the sauce was good - however really hard to eat as the inedible top of the wings were not chopped off (I don't know why restaurants do not remove this). The buttermilk wings were bad. The fried coating just fell off to leave a very raw-looking a chewy centre. As much as we love medium-rare chicken, we chose to avoid these undercoocked ones, and even if we had wanted to complain, there wouldn't have been anyone to complain to. We asked the passing waiter for our dips about 6 times in this period - only to be ignore every time. We ordered some more buffalo wings, and by the time these had arrived, the medium-rare chicken had settled into our stomachs so we weren't actually hungry. And then our dips (that we had ordered at the start of the meal) finally came. I don't understand how it can take so long to put a dip in a pot but anyway. All dips other than the Sriracha mayo were revolting - but quite frankly we all felt so ill by this point that it would be unfair to judge. We left - paid up - the waiter apologised for the slow service which we accepted. We said we didn't think the wings were very nice so he gave us a 20% off voucher for next time. I don't think any of us will be using that. One of the table proceeded to go into every pub on the way home to "eject" the wings out of both ends, whilst the others just felt thoroughly ill.

Decent food but poor service. After being showed to our table,drinks didn't arrive until a good 30 mins sitting there and even though I booked bottomless chicken wings Wednesday only got served a total of 4 chicken wings after 1h 40 mins and that after constantly trying to get the staff's attention to get a top up. They eventually took the chicken wings deal off the bill but overall a very disappointing dining experience. Visited Absurd Bird Soho on 2017-12-13

The service was excellent despite how busy they were. Not only were the staff clearly having fun but they were incredibly attentive and at the risk of sounding dramatic they were also very passionate not just about the food but about the atmosphere.

Pretty disappointing to be honest. Chicken was bland and unseasoned! Kareem our waiter was friendly and patient... only to hear his superiors be rude and demeaning towards him because of that!!! Wasn't worth the money or the £50 deposit which I thought would b discounted off our bill which wasn't. Before my food arrived I was very excited to return and try everything else on the menu...

Really poor experience, waited 15mins to be asked for drinks and there were no cold bottles as the fridge hadnt been restocked, we ended up getting 3 different beers, at least they honoured the reduced price on them. We went on a Monday and with only 3 other tables we waited over an hour for fpod and the chicken wings were warm at best. Spicy chicken burger was the only saving grace. Wont be coming back.
