The new Hix restaurant in Shoreditch is a family friendly and hip venture. The space is open with plenty of room for buggies between the booths, tables and bar. The menu is fuss-free with a choice between chicken or steak and kids under 10 eat free during lunch. Children receive a colouring sheet and pencils and the disabled toilet has a changing table and tommee tippee nappy bin. Our waiter John was wonderful in advising both put choices and for the kids. And the huge Hirst cow and rooster is a delight to everyone!Recommended for:

Five stars for an amazing venue and friendly service. The Damien Hirst is stunning. Food is ok. Chicken and steak. Good wine menu. Food options will have to expand to keep this huge space filled. Regardless of the hix celebrity.

Situated in trendy Shoreditch, this restaurant is the creation of celebrity chef Mark Hix. His 7th restaurant in 4 years! And it is busy! I managed to get a reservation for 4 at 6 on a Thursday evening. We were given exactly 2 hours to eat, and when the two hours were up, the waiter politely suggested that we retire to their lounge area to free up the table! Ok, the food. Quite simple here, they only have roasted chicken and steak and a few starters and sides to go with them. The chicken was dramatically served upright on a designer platter with two legs with claws sticking out. It was really moist with two kinds of gravy to go with it. The steak was supposed be well marbled, but I found it to be quite mediocrely prepared. Not impressed. Both main dishes came with fries or chips as they are called in England. Overall, it was a fun experience worth trying once.
