My friend and I went for dinner during happy hour. We were a little disappointed by the steamed buns because they were a bit hard in the middle instead of soft all the way through. The dessert - the one with the speculoos ice cream sandwiched between to big cookies - sounded amazing but was not as great in real... More

A hearty thank you to the management of Giraffe at the Brunswick Centre for doing us a big favor recently. Their kindness allowed us to enjoy a few beers outside in their patio seating on an unseasonably warm day, while eating lunches that were prepacked for us, as we were on a break from an organized excursion. That's just incredible... More

Giraffe is one of my favorite places in Brunswick! My partner hates it but I adore it! There are days that I crave their Duck Stir fry dish! Definitely 5 stars from me but 1 from my partner.

Giraffe is an interesting concept, with dishes from around the world. The service was excellent and the food reasonably priced. My chilli beef burrito was average.

Every six months or so we have to visit Great Ormond Street Hospital for a few days. We virtually always stop in at Giraffe. The kids enjoy it. We like the food. It's a good atmosphere. Highly recommend.

We came on here on new year's day as pretty much everywhere else was shut, but were really pleased with our meal. For starters we had nachos (generous portion) and the squid (really tender in a light batter) which were very tasty. For mains we opted for the rodeo (chicken) and the brisket burger. Both were a very generous portion,... More

The food was not that good - in fact, a hamburger made with a fibrous beef made one diner have difficulty swallowing. Service was borderline bad/cavalier. Water refills and bill had to be requested. The only bright spot - an efficient manager who seemed to be the only one working in the entire place. I would venture to guess that... More
