“Quality Food in Pleasant Atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have had lunch and dinner at Clary's many times since it opened in 2011. Irrespective of how busy the casino is (and it is almost always very busy!) the restaurant is never crowded or particularly busy.

The menu offers a wide range of European/Chinese/Indian cuisine at reasonable prices. Service is always prompt and pleasant and generally the food is well-presented. The quality of the food is always high.

Since it opened Clary's has offered a variety of special lunch deals, which were very good value. However, they do not currently have any special deals. They also used to be open for breakfast, but that seems to have stopped as well. Worth a visit if you are in the Westfield area. Certainly nicer and better value than any of the restaurants in the Westfield Centre's Food Court area.

“Delicious meal for 4 in the restaurant”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My partner and I treated the in-laws to a meal here as something a bit different to do during a trip to London and we certainly weren't disappointed. the meal was delicious, served quickly and efficiently by very attentive staff and every dish was piping hot and extremely good. We ate duck and orange pate (a huge slab) with toasted bread, butterflied king prawns and breaded jalapenos with cheese (again a huge portion). The star of the main course was a ginormous rack and a half of babyrack ribs, whilst the fillet steak was of good quality and the grilled seabass with wilted spinach again a generous portion and tasted divine. apple pie and ice cream with chocolate sauce just about finished us off. If you are looking for a slightly different experience then this is great fun, we had a wander around the casino afterwards and watched the players (there is no membership policy and you are free to come in and have a browse around) and it also has great views across the Olympic Park and direct onto the stadium so ticked a lot of boxes for us. Will definitely be back!

“Lovely lunch, not sure why the bad reviews...”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

My partner and I visited last week for lunch and had a great time. We primarily booked because we wanted to go to the casino after but were pleasantly surprised. We were seated quickly at a quiet table and were looked after by a lovely waitress.

Ordered champagne which arrived quickly as did our food. We had the prawns and pate for starters, both were very tasty and good portion sizes. For the main we stuck with the chinese options as per the previous reviews (& also so we could share!) The food was very tasty and there was lots of it! we had the sweet & sour chicken and the thai green chicken curry, we also ordered a small vegetable chow mein. Too much food for two and I have had better but I still loved it and would probably order the same (or the burger) when I go back.

Overall, we had a nice lunch and I would definitely go back and recommend - staff were lovely, food and drink very reasonably priced.

“I probably would go back but not on business.”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I had arranged to go to Clarys, with several business colleagues who had flown in from all over the world for any recent management meeting we had decided to stay in the holiday Inn Stratford city so they could see the Olympic Park. Clarys was in close proximity to the hotel and would also give them a chance to use the casino if they wanted.

We were seated by very pleasant staff who gave prompt service we all decided to order starters from the Chinese menu, unfortunately the softshell crab was not available, nevertheless we all ordered and enjoyed a fantastic selection. Six of us continued on the Chinese theme were very satisfied with the food provided. One colleague decided to order steak, medium well. When it was served on cutting mistake it was still bleeding it was returned to the kitchen and asked to be cooked further. Once again it was served and yes it was cooked slightly more but it was mooring of raw state and cook state, he decided to persevere and give it a go on cutting the butter Pat which was laid on top of the state the paper was still wrapped around it is been decided that it is demonstrably more. We were pleased that we didn’t have to pay for the steak, but do feel it would have been better with a little bit of effort to try and accommodate not a difficult requirement. Why selection at the restaurant was also very good and I would certainly recommend the Argentinian Malbec.

I wish we had all stuck to the Chinese menu weaned then would all had a fantastic time, just let down by this one mistake to the edge of the evening and am meeting.

I probably would go back but not on business.

“terrible service, over priced”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

we went to clarys for a quick meal and it was empty so we thought the service will be good, but we had to wait for over 1 hour to get our meal out and it came cold.
when we wanted to speak to a supervisor, the waitress told us the managers were of .
the service was very bad, no one seems to know what they were doing and the food over priced.
i would not recommend this restaurant
