    Great place situated alongside the park and which serves up good food in pleasant surroundings.

    Pizzas are very popular here and are wonderful and generous (you'll not leave hungry). The ingredients are carefully selected, flour used is organic and they are fired to perfection in a pukka italian pizza oven.

    Not in the mood for a Pizza? Then choose from one of the other menus - The Bistro menu or the Grill menu. Fresh, organic and highest quality ingredients are used throughout and everything from the ketchup to the stock and sauces is handmade on the premises.

    Presentation of food is good and attention is paid to how you would like your meat done. If you don't clear your plate be sure they'll notice and want to know why. Tell them you've been advised to leave room for their wonderful desserts / sweet things.

    The chef here loves baking, desserts and trying out new recipes. The fudge and sable biscuits are worth looking out for. Mmmmm

    2 check-ins here

    I have a variety of things to say about the yellow house. First of all the good things:

    It's the only decent wine bar in the area, the decor is nice and so are the staff.

    Today I had meatballs and my housemate had a goats cheese tartlet. Food was all round good.

    The down sides: A little expensive for a one course lunch for 2 and soft drinks, including service we paid £36.00. Also their opening hours are wrong- it said on the yelp app they were closed but it was fully open at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon.

    Now my mini complaint- we checked in on yelp and it popped up saying 'free garlic bread'... Yippeeee.... Except when I showed it to our waiter, he said it was 'only for evenings'. Well- it should say that on your check in offer then! That's misleading and annoying for customers.  Get that fixed (and your opening hours) so it doesn't bother other Yelpers and I think you'll be onto a winner because like I said, the food is actually pretty good.

    The Yellow House is the freshest restaurant on the Surrey Quays High Street. The menu is diverse, with some ambitious entrees, and you can taste the care and dedication of the skillful preparation in every bite. The staff is friendly, and the lighting and mood is sophisticated and relaxed.

    Worth a visit! Great for a date!

    The Yellow House is the restaurant version of the Yellow House bar located a little further up the road. Having only recently moved to the Surrey Quays area, I was a little concerned at the seemingly lack of good restaurants, so when I passed The Yellow House with its bright yellow exterior, I decided to give it a go.  

    The dining area is small but quaint and cosy, and it is perfect for a romantic but good value meal, or to catch up with a friend. The atmosphere is great and the staff are attentive and friendly.

    The place is apparently notorious for its wood fire pizza so I tried a simple tuna pizza which was just beautiful - thin crust and not too crispy (the chef will make it according to your preference if you ask). The prices are inexpensive considering the quality - I paid £9.95 for my pizza which was delicious.

    Along with the Yellow House Bar, this is probably the best eating and social establishment Surrey Quays has to offer! The only downfall is that the Yellow House Restaurant restricts is opening days from Wednesday to Saturday.

    Surrey Quays isn't perhaps the social hub of London but The Yellow House on Lower Road is definitely… Read more

    That is one of the best restaurants in the area. I like going there mainly because of their pizzas. They are wood fired and just taste better. And ingredients are mixed very well.
    For first time in my life I tried pizza with spinach and goat's cheese. Thought spinach is only for salads but obviously it's not. And never ate goat's cheese before but the combination on the pizza is just delicious. I can't explain. But really nice place to go and they don't serve only pizzas.

    Came here after doing a basic search for good restaurants in the Docklands.  So glad we found this one!  For tourists and fans of public transit it is a perfect spot since it is literally across the street from the Surrey Quays tube station.  Like, less than a minute walk, you can see it when you exit, level of proximity.  Excellent.

    The atmosphere was quiet but friendly, and I like it when I can see my food being prepared in an open kitchen.  Jeremy ordered the lamb and I opted for a spinach and goat cheese personal pizza.  When our food came I was a little disappointed, I won't lie.  The pizza crust looked great and there was plenty of spinach, but the cheese was very light.  It was so light that I thought there was a chance I got the wrong pie, so when the chef checked on us (yes, the chef!) I asked him if I got what I ordered.  He was very apologetic but, yes, that is their standard level of cheesiness.  Perhaps Americans are just a cheesier breed, so I didn't make a fuss.  He guessed that I was disappointed, insisted that I tell him what would make me happy, and proceeded to make me a whole new pie with my specifications.  He also brought Jeremy a beer to enjoy since he finished eating before I got mine.  When the second pizza came, it was wonderfully cheesy and delicious.  I ate as much as I could, which was all but a think slice that J made disappear.  Overall, a great meal.

    Wouldn't say that it's worth the trip all the way from Central London, but for those that live in the area or who are staying near Canary Wharf like we were, it was ideal for a nice weeknight meal.

    It seems that the original Yellow House has sadly become a victim of the credit crunch so this now is the only place the owners have. Not to worry as it is still excellent, the pizzas are amazing and if at the end of one of them you actually have room for one of their tempting desserts they are fantastic. And they do a really good Sunday roast too. The service is friendly and knowledgable and I would say that overall it is great value for money. I've never had a disappointing meal there.

    A sister to the Yellow House restaurant, the Yellow House bar & kitchen offers the perfect place for weekend brunch, or cheap pizzas and light meals on those nights when you come home from work too tired to cook. Belgian beers are on tap, and served in gratifyingly large glasses. The wood fired pizza oven turns out the best calzone outside of Italy, and the staff regularly show off the dessert table with pride. Service can, occasionally, be a little slow, but has improved since opening, and they will always speed up if you tell them you're in a hurry. All in all, this is a wonderful place to eat out with friends.
