Terrible food, terrible service, terrible hygiene and yet relatively expensive (presumably due to location). We visited (Oct 2012) relying upon the TimeOut review and rating and were mightily disappointed. With all the beautiful food and restaurants available in Soho and Chinatown it would be a real mistake to venture here. Specifically, meatballs were so tough you could barely bite into them and when you did, they tasted like spam/dog food, spicy broth was tasteless, mushrooms were like flavourless whelks, bathrooms were disgusting - couldn't wait to leave, honestly.


I lived in China for 6 years, this was a welcome reminder of what I miss being back in the UK.


I have travelled in Thailand, India and Africa and event the dirtiest street food stall in either of those places had better hygiene than Little Lamb. The prawns, bamboo and squid were good but the rest of the food did not look fresh at all. The waitress’ hands –specially her nails- looked disgusting. With no permission, she took my chop sticks and pick up a piece of crab form the table and put it back on the plate! I am not squeamish nor picky about food but a food lover and cook often myself, this place was absolutely disgusting!
