26 Maddox Street, London W1S 1HQ
Latest critic review: April 21, 2009
Critics' score: 6.5 out of 10

It's strange, given the British fondness of meat and two veg, that London should be a city so bereft of more than a handful of places you can depend on to get a really excellent steak. Unfortunately, despite its promise to serve diners the most 'full-flavoured, tender steak in London' Goodman doesn't seem to be the place that will sate our bloodlust.

"My rib-eye steak was huge and tender - the cow probably had its own special masseuse to produce meat this faultless- and the accompanying chips were good." READ REVIEW

"…overall the food is patchy, and the self-congratulatory proselytising ('highest quality’, 'our unconventional approach’, 'exceptional value’) made it taste even more medium-medium." READ REVIEW

"So, all-in-all, a slighly mixed report. But if you want to check the place out for yourself, this handily-sited spot offers very reasonably-priced set lunch menus" READ REVIEW
