Found Jakob's walking along Gloucester street. It is eat in (in the back is a lovely seating area). We shared the salmon and spinach pie, with two sides each. Generous portions! The salmon was outstanding, as was the beet salad, mushroom and spinach side. The owners were very friendly, congenial and welcoming. Would absolutely recommend this place for a quality... More

My friend and I stopped here recently to get two falafel wraps l. At only £4.50 each they were great value for money as they were huge and packed full of tasty ingredients. I had half for lunch and half for dinner. The guy serving was really friendly too. All the good is freshly prepared And looks delicious, but is... More

The food and staff here are amazing, the restaurant is decorated very nice and it is a cosy comfortable atmosphere. The Meze and bread for started are wonderful and delicious definite must have well then followed this with Beef Tagine Georgian Chicken rice and vegetables. The desserts are out of this world. Highly Recommended 5/5

We happened to walk past this little place on our way to Cirque de Soliel at RAH. My dad probably would never chosen this type of food! But we were all very pleased especially the homemade hummus and bread and veggie quiche and the range of fresh salads were amazing. Welcoming staff too.

Before an evening at RAH for the Cirque du Soleil I checked Trip Advisor for some decent local place to eat. Jakobs sounded sooo good... And maybe if the food picked from a fridge, sort of reheated in a microwave is your kind of thing, then go for it. It tasted not too bad, but it was not hot, and... More

Given that my girlfriend is vegan, when we are eating together it is vital that the place we choose has a variety of options for her - else i feel incredibly guilty! Having been advertised as having plenty of options, it was wonderful to walk in and enquire as to whether many of the dishes in the counter were vegan.... More

I eat here every chance I can (I live locally) as it is fantastic value, healthy and delicious. There is a broad range of dishes, all of which are made with fresh tasty ingredients. They do probably the best wrap in town as well (you can choose what you want in it). The marinade for the chicken breast is second... More

The food is superb, so many options to choose from and the staff are so helpful. Loved the attention to decor in the dining room and the care taken by the staff of each diner.

A short walk from the RAH, Jakobs offers excellent food in take-away containers with free paper serviettes and wooden cutlery, ideal to eat while queueing for a prom concert. I particularly commend their vegetarian quiche.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
