7 reviews of Tinseltown in English
Expensive prices for small portions of average quality food. And service was awful in both the tinseltown locations we went to (great portland st. and farringdon) due to the girls who cant speak english very well and have a massive attitude when you dare to ask questions about their menu! TGI fridays is miles better if you like the americana-diner type atmosphere and food. Although the only good thing is tinseltown does do nice milkshakes, but again its way overpriced for the size you get. Better off going to shakeaway which specialises in milkshakes.
I’m not a fan. After hearing a lot about this place we decided to check it out.
I found the hambruger meat to be distasteful, rubbery and a bit gross to be honest. The milkshake was okay and the service a bit lackluster. Sorry, if I want a burger I’d go elsewhere.
I visit Tinsel Town in Hampstead for the milkshakes because they are absolutely amazing! They have such a huge range of flavours available, I'm working my way through them slowly but surely.
I prefer this branch as they use real ice cream in the milkshakes but in the Farringdon branch they use Mr Whippy type ice cream which doesn't make the milkshakes taste as good.

Friday and Saturday: 12 noon until 3am the next morning

I am a Tinseltown regular and have to say i LOVE it, the food isnt amazing but the staff are always friendly and greet you with a smile, there r two manergers that iv seen, a younger blonde one and an older dark haired guy, both r great and always welcoming, the atmosphere is good and providing u dnt get saton the lil round tables its comfortable and the milkshakes r out of this world, i recommend the oreos milkshake. I love all the novel names for the shakes and think thats part of the TINSELTOWN experience. Anyway to conculde, great service, good quick food, amazing milkshakes and reasonable prices.
Firstly, a little correction - this branch isn’t open 24 hours, but it usually closes - depending on the day of the week - at 2 or 3 in the morning, so for the purposes of most hungry night-owls, it’s as near as doesn’t matter.
The first thing that strikes you about this American-style diner is, well, its American-style. Anyone who’s been to a Hollywood Johnny Rockets will know what kind of thing to expect, with burgers and milkshakes galore.
But what stands out most about this place is the fact that in keeping with the Hollywood theme, to match the celebrity photos on the wall - many of the stars posing with the restaurant chain’s founder - and pop videos screaming out from the big screens, each of the dishes and drinks is named after a movie - often so tentatively, that you can’t work out what it is.
There are the obvious “China Town” for the Chinese section of the menu, “Italian Job” for the pasta dishes and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” for the burritos, and the dessert menu features the “Waffle Monty” (say it out aloud!) while the menu also features a “Licence to Grill” area and the “Basic Drinks tinct” (you get the idea!). But it’s the milkshake menu - where the joke wears rather thin, with the word “shake” being clumsily shoehorned in to everything from “Gladi-shaker” and “Shakes on a Plane” to “Shakes-orcist” and “Buffy the Vampire Shake-er.”
It’s bright and noisy, and unless you get a booth, you’ll be perched on a high bench, with your food on a table so small and round that it’s not particular ideal for a date scenario, but sometimes, by the time the movie’s over or you’ve finished your romantic walk on the Heath, there’s no-where else open.
Given that Tinseltown largely has a captive audience as there’s literally no-where else in Hampstead to start a sit-down meal after 10pm (correct me if I’m wrong), it doesn’t really matter whether the food is any good, as whatever it is, for a hungry post-pub audience, it’s better than nothing, but it’s more than up to the challenge. The menu is varied, the portions are generous, the prices reasonable and the service is friendly.
