Time Out says
A Hackney Wick bar and kitchen, Number 90 boasts a great canalside location, on the banks of the Lee Navigation. Drinks by the water prove popular when the sun shines but food is a draw, too. Expect a menu ranging from chicken wings and mac and cheese balls to salads, burgers, a range of fries and indulgent desserts. Keep an eye out for DJ sets from credible acts, too.

I have to agree with other reviews in that this place has a lot of potential, however for me not somewhere I would rush back to! It is large but nothing special on the inside and could do so much more with it. Although it obviously works for them as the place was rammed, we had a table reserved thankfully so had a little more space but it was so crowded and so busy which made getting served very difficult! There was a vibe in here that made me feel like a student again and not in a good way, for me, much nicer places to go to for a drink in East London.
Came here for brunch with 15 minutes to spare - tried to order but they said the brunch was no longer available. (at 1:45 PM) fine, ordered lunch. Server staff were not great. They forgot my beer, I had to literally wave down someone to get it since I had already paid, and also get some ketchup for our food. Atmosphere however is really cool, chill and they were playing good music. Looked like an event was about to happen soon. I would come back just for drinks, not sure about food.
Surprisingly good Sunday roast (pork) - usually come here for the drinks but will make it a destination for food too now.
This is an amazing space with loads of potential - right on the canal, lovely big terrace, so much space....
Number 90 need to up their game when it comes to their staff. Being asked to leave literally 5 minutes after buying a large glass of wine is enough to leave a sour taste in anyone's mouth. When we politely pointed out that we'd only just bought our drinks the security guard told us we could decant it into a plastic cup. umm no thanks.
Perhaps stop serving in adequate time so you don't have to have a massive stress and aggressively shove people out onto the street. I think the only thing less comfortable than being abruptly ordered to leave was watching an increasingly irate security guard bellowing at two guys to leave despite the fact that their meals had only arrived about 15 mins earlier. Not to mention they had a whole bottle of wine.
I lived in Hackney for four years and know from experience that there are plenty of amazing places that won't treat their customers like this. Actually in many places you're made to feel part of a family and there's a really nice local vibe.
Number 90 needs to step up in this respect as it overshadows all the good stuff they've got going on. it's a shame.
So much wasted potential here, the venue is spacious and in a lovely setting on the canal front. The food is actually very good as well. However, I've been a few times now and the service is pretty poor, on my last 2 occasions they have forgotten someone's meal entirely among other issues. The furniture could also do with a revamp, I know people are looking for that rustic, hipster look but sometimes it just doesn't work, nobody likes to sit on broken seats or splintered wood. Considering the competition around Hackney Wick, this is not quite competing with the better ones
of the go-to places in Hackney Wick right now. Spacious warehouse with multiple uses. By
day, cool place for a beer or lunch, especially during sunny days, by night –
My first visit here was for this great underground rave party that changes locations and I was surprised to hear this is actually a good restaurant by day as well. Since then, been here on quieter evenings out as and has very pleasant and cool atmosphere. Terrace by the river is especially enchanting. Half-Baked party that was organised here was a success, so much so, that the wait in line was for 1 hour and a half, so maybe next time, cooperate with organisers for more efficient security. Other than that, awesome place!
Stood 1hour 40minutes in the queue yesterday as we've been told 'everyone is equal and everyone is getting in eventually' and was turned away with no explanation!!! Absolutely ruined mine and my friends night, especially when we had friends inside waiting for us! Thanks 90.. Never coming back again
Last month, I visited Hackney Wick area for the first time and I absolutely loved it. One of the place, I've recently discovered is the 90 Bar and Kitchen. I had tickets for a 'Tropical Day & Night Canal-Side Summer Party' they were organizing that day. But I was not impressed as they seemed not ready for the event. It was empty, poorly decorated and the kitchen was not working. Thankfully the weather was good and we had drinks on the canal-side but had to leave to get some food elsewhere and go back. The service at the bar was quite slow and not very friendly. But I'm not giving up on this place yet as some of my friends told me it was a nice place to chill out and enjoy a Sunday Roast. So I might go back for a 2nd visit later this Summer.
one of the trendiest places in East London where you can chill, eat, drink and party with your mates.

best and most unpretentious place in Hackney wick to chill. Plus only place with regular music/bingo/comedy nights. The guys running it built everything themselves over the course of a year.
Best venue to play, amazing staff, amazing crowd, amazing food and amazing environment. Feels just like home.
I've been to n90 few times and what I love of this place is the variety of art, music & food in one place .
Number 90 is Hackneys hidden gem. A multi-talented restaurant, bar, events space and music venue the whole year round. An amazing, friendly team of staff who always make you feel welcome, great food, lovely cocktails and quite often, some
Of the best DJ's/musical talents in the world. All this set against the backdrop of the Olympic park......absolutely love this place. :)
This space has everything what east London needs ! I go there very often for exhibitions and bingo night .
