Pond Dalston

3 Gillett Street, Dalston, London N16 8JH
Latest critic review: October 09, 2014
Critics' score: 7 out of 10

This Hawaiian restaurant is looking to bring Pacific cuisine - particularly Hawaii's "pokes" to London. Expect an eclectic range of dishes and plenty of non-Tiki cocktails.

"Pond isn't ideal for anyone who doesn't like raw fish, but it does Japanese-Hawaiian with flair and bags of charm, for which one can only say "Mahalo!"" READ REVIEW

"Our advice is say aloha (‘hello’) to the bar, where you can admire the ambition of this enterprise; but then say aloha (the second time means ‘goodbye’) to the restaurant and its equally ambitious pricing." READ REVIEW
