    The parrilladas (braziers) are very big. I got the buen ayre one for 2 people, and we could barely finish it!! However they were quite happy for us to take home the leftovers.

    My favorite steakhouse in London. Cosy, homely and filled with massive bits of steak. Nom.

    Massive steaks well cooked but certainly NOT the best in London. Not even the best in this little pocket of london.

    Steaks are all great, but the chips were too big and starchy. Go for green salad instead.

    Has went seriously downhill as of late. Not only do you have to squeeze in next to obnoxious trendies but food quality has dropped & prices raised. Avoid

    I've been here twice - first for my stag, when we had 2 mixed grills. Really good, and a proper feast for a table of guys. The 2nd time with my wife was just ok - huge steaks but quality was average.

    Everything they say about this place is true. If you haven't eaten a lot of meat recently - go easy.

    Cosy & quirky...been a fan of Argentinian cuisine & Buen Ayre didn't let me down! A heaven for meat lovers! Don't forget to make a reservation, this place is packed at weekends.

    Unpretentious and super tasty. I've paid twice as much in London for steak that doesn't come close. That grill just cooks them to perfection.

    Don't hesitate and go for the 'Parrillada'. You won't be disappointed. Which one? Any of them will make you happy.

    The Parrillada Deluxe platter is superb. Be prepared to eat a lot of great meat. Wash it down with one of the Malbecs on the wine menu.

    Fantastic!! Never disappoints - great food, service & wine. Only downside is the lighting - would be lovely if they could turn it down a bit in the evening.

    Steak sandwich at lunchtime is great! However the wait time can be quite long, depending on when you come in

    Don't beleive the hype. Average steak and terrible everything else. I've been many times over the past 5 years and it's now officially rubbish!

    Broadway Market is still a hidden treasure in London Fields and Buen Ayre is certainly one of the main reasons why you need to go there. My recommendation is to go for the Parrillada Deluxe.

    Arrive with an appetite. Leave with a severe case of the meat sweats. Steak so good it makes me wish that humans had 4 stomachs too.

    Best steak I have eaten in London by a country mile. The puddle of melted cheese is also a winner.
