This spot has not one, but two themes: American and superhero, and they both compliment each other perfectly. With great power comes great responsibility, mind you, so you’ll need to arrive with a huge appetite because the portions at Area 52 in Whitechapel are truly out of this world. Burger-lovers will have to try one of their cheese and steak burgers served on a brioche bun with crisp iceberg lettuce, mixed salad leaves, house sauce, tomatoes, gherkins and cheese. Oh baby!

Opened half hour later than our reservation time, with no explanation or apology. Service was very poor, staff didnt understand thier own menu. After a long wait for food (50 minutes from ordering), our started and mains were brought out at the same time and the waitress just crammed them all uncomfortably on to the very small table. The food was ok, below average for this kind of restaurant but still ok. Ordered the Freakshakes for dessert using a Groupon voucher. After a long wait, another 30 mins, we received them. Strange after taste as if they were made with gone off milk. Could not drink them. The reason I have rated 2 instead of 0 is purely for the decor and theming of the restaurant which was very cool.

Slow and bad service, with only average food, that ended up making me sick. Hard to contact via phone. I told them it was my husbands birthday and they didn't seem care or make any effort. They could offer so much more, for a magical experience. Sadly, I will not return.

Liked what we saw, great for kids. Staff knowledge of menu wasn't good. Some staff gave an impression that they didn't want to be there.

Poor service. Good food. Did not live up to expectation and a nightmare to get to. Staff were rude and found it difficult to communicate with them.

Very poor service and food not so great. Better elsewhere to try food. Steak was so dry and bland. Burger was so small but can get better in another shop.
