The meal was lovely. - Cheryl,NW10

Very tender lamb, delicious! - Jenny,W11
Stars
Scrumptious! - Laurence,W2
Stars
Great food! - kieran,W14

Delicious, as always, from Laurent, but I think that there should have been either one large or two smaller fillets of sea bass. The one I received was really small. - leslie,W11
Stars
Delicious, as ever! - Laurence,W2
Stars
Dinner party with Housebites!!! Everyone was happy and loved it!!! - Colin,W10
Stars
The food was good - much better than I could cook without a lot of practice. The main reason I haven't selected very good, is that some of it was surprisingly small, mainly the roasted vegetables and we weren't entirely convinced it was all value for money (my review is based on the full price, we benefited from a £10 discount). However, I appreciate we may not be the target customers. We make a lot of our food buying decions based on price over quality, based on our income. - Amy,NW10
Stars
Both dishes were excellent. The main problem with Housebites is that the delivery distances are sometimes considerable and the food is not too hot by the time it arrives. Butt his can easily be corrected by heating up in the oven. - Mervyn,SW7
Stars
The chicken was fine but the couscous was bland and not very tasty. - Amrita,NW6
Stars
Beautiful meal, thanks! - Alex,W2
Stars
Delicious! though a bigger portion of veg would have made it even better! - Laurence,W2
Stars
All excellent! - Rob,NW3
Stars
Bloody marvelous... - Simon,W10
Stars
Was a great meal. Would have been nicer to include some gravy with the lamb. - Michael,NW8
Stars
Very tasty! As usual - the right consistency & colour. Super-speedy delivery. Thank you! - zhenya,NW8
Stars
Excellent food, generous portions, prompt service. Who could ask for more? - John,NW6

Yummy! Doesn't feel like it was take away food at all. - eva,NW3
Stars
Excellent as always!! - Colin,W10
Stars
Excellent food. Fast delivery. Hot. Perfect meal. - Mark,NW6
Stars
Excellent, wonderful meal. - Alex,W2
Stars
Lovely! Tasty, juicy lamb, and the potato gratin with thinly laid potatoes, seasoned with herbs and cream in between the layers, baked just as about slightly crispy on the surface & soft beneath - perfect. - zhenya,NW8
Stars
All was ok other than the lamb. Poor meat and a lot of fat which was close to raw. Cold too. Weak flavoured jus, didn't add anything. - David,W8
Stars
Laurent is the Master master-chef in my eyes. In terms of his Housebites contribution, his portions are always generous, his flavours perfectly balanced, and his combinations suit my palate 100%. I keep re-ordering from him. - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
Beautifully done fish & vegetables. The taste, consistency & colour were exactly right. Plus the delivery was (even) quicker than expected. - zhenya,NW8
Stars
The lamb rump was delicious! The meal was delivered hot and I had no complaints. Highly recommended. - Selena,W9
Stars
Delicious. - Debs,W10
Stars
Fantastic food for a Saturday night in. We really loved everything especially the Chocololo's!! - Jess,NW8
Stars
Cod was superb! Lamb quite tender. Enjoy everything. - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
Excellent service, excellent delivery and most importantly excellent food - thank you! - Kirsten,W9
Stars
It was tasty but overcooked and not 'pink' and it was cold. Devastated as I'm pregnant and the craving is quite unbelievable!!! - D,W8
Stars
This is our first time using this site. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!!!! My god I'm definitely ordering again. Delivery was bang on time... food perfection.... and not expensive either!... especially for the quality of the food! I would totally order every evening if I could afford it and wasn't worried about my weight. Great chef!! Thankyou ever so much! - Sarah,NW8
Stars
Delicious! - Dan,W10
Stars
Laurent is my favourite chef in the W9 area. His meals always impress! - Dearne,W9
Stars
Excellent - the Pork Belly was a small portion but delicious. - Colin,W10
Stars
Enjoyed! - Laurence,W2
Stars
Good standard compared to other take away but by Housebites standard a little disappointing. Cassoulet a bit sauceless and meat oily. Side of veg tasty but minuscule for 3.55. - jo,NW10
Stars
A great meal thank you! - Belinda,W9
Stars
Top quality meal! - Tiffany,NW10
Stars
The food was overall nice (only the rump of lamb was a little bit chewy), however I need to admit that I didn't think it was tasty enough for the money. - Nina,NW6
Stars
The brownie was amazing!! - Husam,SW7
Stars
The rump of lamb was a flavourful and well-cooked as any lamb I've had in my life, and the potato gratin was a superb accompaniment. Having said that, I really enjoyed every bite of everything else, too. Your brownies are the best brownies I have ever had. - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
Delicious meal from Laurent and fantastic service too! Et les chocolats sont toujours un vrai plaisir :-) - louise,W9
Stars
No complaints. Very good. Keep it up. - david,SW7
Stars
It was absolutely gorgeous - perfectly cooked lamb with a beautiful rich sauce. I wasn't aware it came with rice and vegetables (which were lovely) so I ordered mashed potatoes, slightly more fitting than rice to my taste anyway. Again, great job! - Lippe,NW3
Stars
Positives: The meal arrived on time. The portions were extremely generous The sea bass was delicious, the fish fresh. Things to work on: Unexpectedly, the pork belly was a bit dry (a little overdone maybe? - not sure.) The food was just about lukewarm, definitely needs to be warmer. Overall - good for the fish, average for the pork. - Raahat,W11
Stars
Pork was especially nice - really, really delicious - Oli,W11
Stars
Lovely fresh, tasty, healthy food and speedy delivery too! - Oliver,NW2
Stars
Everything tasted fresh and delicious. The risotto was creamy and the chicken was great. Loved the plums in the confit - will order from Laurent again - James,NW3
Stars
I was all alone at home on Friday night so I deserved a nice, hot meal which is exactly what I got! Thanks housebites! - Aaron,NW6
Stars
Fish was nice and crispy - Marta,W11
Stars
The food was excellent. Everything was perfectly seasoned and was piping hot when it arrived. The portions could have been a little bigger but its not smaller than anything you would get at a fancy restaurant. I would definitely order again. - Kenny,W2
Stars
Very Good isn't good enough. What about adding words like superb and amazing, or even delicious. Our meal was excellent. Possibly the best take away, I've ever had and my husband commented that he could eat this every Tuesday. Compliments to the Chef! Sincerely, Lynn Kingelin - Lynn,W2
Stars
Very tasty meal, thanks Laurent! - Tony,W10
Stars
great concept - huge gap in market has been filled! food was yummy. delivery fast. the packaging could be improved - one of the meals had leaked and the bag was greasy and messy. - Angela,W10
Stars
Tasty pork belly and also earlier orders have been at times excellent. However no roasted vegetables which the menu says is part of the dish, just potato mash? - Truls,NW3
Stars
Excellent again, thank you Laurent. Your mashed potato with the pork belly was perfect, with a lovely hint of truffle that was just right and didn't overwhelm. Everything was delicious. - Lucy,W9
Stars
Delivered early and piping hot! Delicious, succulent and filling lamb casserole, thanks Laurent. - Tony,W10
Stars
Another amazing meal!! - Colin,W10
Stars
The food was delicious. Better than I could cook myself for sure so a real treat. We loved the dark chocolate with raspberries as a treat too. On the expensive side for take-away so will be more of a special occasion thing rather than everyday event, but it was an exceptional meal as one would expect from a top restaurant. - Heike,NW3
Stars
Extremely good. - david,SW7
Stars
stew was great. not too oily not too watery. spot on. with a lovely sweetness that didn't outweigh the savoury nature of meal. Really enjoyed it all....and i'm normally really fussy - Ben,N19
Stars
This was my first order from Housebites, really liked the way you can choose a delivery slot for the next day- and the delivery was punctual. The food was very good. That said I would never say it was worth £14.50 for a small-medium sized lamb casserole and some rice, especially when you are eating at home rather than in a nice restuarant. Rich Lamb Casserole Taste 8/10 Portion (one normal-sized takeaway plastic container): 6/10 Price (normal full price £14.50): 1/10 Potato Dauphinoise Taste 8/10 Portion 4/10 Price (normal full price £3.50): 4/10 - Matt,NW10

Good service. - Rebecca,W10
Stars
So good we licked the plate! (Can't do that in a restaurant.) Everything was delicious. We were really impressed and will be doing this again. Thanks and happy Christmas Laurent. - Lucy,W9
Stars
It was a great meal - I was blown away by how easy it was to order and how efficient it was to receive. Can't see myself every ordering takeout again. - Colin,W10
Stars
Delicious and a good combination. Thank you for the complimentary delicious brownie. - Parvin,NW10
Stars
very nice and tasty - malachy,W9
Stars
Loved Laurent's risotto. Unfortunately the chocolates melted a little as they were placed on top of the risotto but they too were delicious! - louise,W9
Stars
Beautiful food, delivered promptly - what more can you want :) - Richard,W1U
Stars
That was a really well judged and delicious meal. Interesting flavours, well balanced, and good size portions, with a very fresh and crisp side salad - Matt,NW6
Stars
The food came steaming hot and delivered by Laurent personally to my surprise :). Everything was just absolutely delicious. The portions are huge, I ordered 3 mains and 2 salads just for myself in order to try everything and find my favourite, but everything was so perfect that I couldn't choose what to eat first :)! Also fish, which I in general don't like that much, tasted divine! Thank you Laurent! - Alisher,NW8
Stars
Amazing lamb casserole! So was the salad! - Tony,W10
Stars
Delicious. Thank you. - Ramita,W10
Stars
The chicken breast with mushroom risotto--my main dish--was as fine a plate as any I've had anywhere: luscious. In addition, this man's brownies are worth travelling the world for; they are that good. - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
Best risotto I have had in a long time! - Vatsala,W1T
Stars
Terrific meal. Laurent rang to say that it'd be a little late - but it was only a little late. And well worth the wait. Chicken with risotto is one of my Housebites favourites. - Lynn,NW5
Stars
We loved everything, especially the fish! One minor note: please don't forget to mention that the brownie has dairy :) Otherwise really great, we'd love to have the option to leave a tip after the meal - fabrizio,W8
Stars
Excellent food quality as always. Cooked to perfection. Only downside is I feel the side portions ( in this casemashed potatoe and mixed autumn vegetable were too small and not value for money. Otherwise the meal /food quality was top notch. - Patrick,W9
Stars
Excellent as always! the chicken breast, salad and box of handmade choclates! just perfection delivered - Honey,NW2
Stars
Excellent as usual! the pork was very tasty. the sauteed vegetables where a tad bland though.. bring back the salad! his are the best ;--) - Honey,NW2
Stars
amazing coq au vin! - malachy,W9
Stars
Food was first rate, what you'd expect to eat in a restaurant!!! Thanks!!! - Adele,W9
Stars
Always excellent, the coq au vin was just delicious! - Melanie,NW1
Stars
This was probably the best lamb shank I have ever eaten ! Simply amazing. Also the truffles were simply amazing - never had better. - Paul,NW1
Stars
very very tasty - Oliver,W1G
Stars
Delicious food (as always) from Laurent: beautifully cooked chicken, creamy risotto with lots of mushrooms, and meltingly good lamb. And of course the chocolate is superb! - Arthur,W1H
Stars
The main meal was very good with a nice infusion of chocolate into the pesto for the gnochi and plenty of chicken in the risotto. However i was very disappointed with the desert which was quite pricey and turned out to not be what was ordered. I ordered a slab of chilli milk chocolate and had a small bag of some pieces of brownie delivered, not what id expect for the price or what id asked for! likewise for the salted caramel chocolates, good taste but for TEN POUNDS a very small bag with some undersized chocolates is definitely not the dessert course to a meal or good value - Sam,NW3
Stars
The food was delicious it was like having a restaurant meal at home! - Gina,NW6
Stars
the salad was very delicious and the main dish was still very hot and very good as well. However, compared to a normal delivery service it was quite expensive (ca. 19 pounds) - Matthaeus,NW3
Stars
The chicken with risotto (and a side of veg) is one of my favourite meals: always hits the spot. Brownie delicious but rather squashed: still went down well! - Lynn,NW5
Stars
Delivered slightly early - I wasn't home yet but aside from that, a very tasty meal with the perfect meal size. - Alexander,NW1
Stars
nicely cooked turbot - robert,W9
Stars
Really tasty - GEORGE,NW6
Stars
Food was delicious and delivered right on time. - Beth,NW6
Stars
Superb meal, the prawn and mango salad was especially delightful. - Edward,W9
Stars
Amazing! Everything was just perfect! - Vivek,SW7
Stars
steak a little over cooked however was good all the same - I appreciate steak doesn't travel well in 'take away' context - Adam,W2
Stars
One of my favourite meals by Laurent ever! He never disappoints but the Pork Filet mignon really is delicious. - Dearne,W9
Stars
very enjoyable, best 'take away' experience I've had. Will be a regular customer, keep it up!! - Adam,W2
Stars
Super yummy! Thank you very much :) - Rachel,W1T
Stars
The arrival was bang on time. It was nicely warm and the portion size was about right. The food was good and tasty, if I had one suggestion it would be a little less salt. - Tara,NW3
Stars
Food was on time but Risotto and Salad were both a little plain. Still nice just for the cost I would have expected a bit more flavour. - Thomas,W12
Stars
Very very delicious - Shaun,W2
Stars
Delicious. Creamy but light. Lovely and herby. - jo,NW10
Stars
Amazing food - thank you!! Cannot wait to try this again - Melanie,NW1
Stars
superb - Martin,W1S
Stars
Home very late after a hard day: too lazy and too exhausted to cook. The main course is already a favourite. I had decided to save the brownie for the next day, tried a corner and then demolished the whole thing: one of the best I've tasted. - Lynn,NW5
Stars
My meal was piping hot, that was brilliant ! But I found although the lamb was tasty it was quite chewy. There was a lot of cous cous which again was tasty and perfect for a hungry person, but I would have personally preferred more veg, which was really nice. It was good but I don't know if I'd order it again, I'd try something else first... - Lauren,W9
Stars
Very good, especially the mushroom risotto - Yannick,W9
Stars
Beetroot carpaccio is so delicious, so is the pork mignon! Laurent is an amazing chef! - Tony,W10
Stars
I'd heard good things about Housebites and wasn't disappointed. Great first experience and I'll be telling my friends. - Simon,W9
Stars
Prawn salad with Mango salad was excellent. Dishes were all cooked properly, arrived nice and warm and were very flavourful. - Kathryn,SW10
Stars
It was a good meal in general. We ordered the Pork Filet mignon and the risotto and we were quite satisfy about. The pork was slightly over cooked but the taste was there. What I don't like is the packaging. Not so glamour... But I would recommand this chef - Nicolas,NW6
Stars
Absolutely delicious! Incredible flavours. Definitely ordering again. - nicky,W14
Stars
i think that lamb chops do not travel very well, and this is not a fault of the chef. But it's one thing to eat them just after they have come off the pan, it's another to eat them half an hour later. - Constantine,SW7
Stars
Yet another delicious meal! - Tony,W10
Stars
Wonderful, interesting flavours and a good, satisfying meal -- thank you. Would have rated "Very Good", but the food was luke-warm at best when it arrived. - Jonathan,W14
Stars
Delicous food full of flavour and it was delivered on time thanks. - Hanaa,W14
Stars
Excellent - the fish in particular - Alex,NW8
Stars
Delicious chicken breast and vegetables and a generous portion of creamy risotto. A really enjoyable and extremely well cooked meal. - Lynn,NW5
Stars
Excellent - Rosalinda,NW3
Stars
Delicious risotto and chicken- I would definitely order again. Large portion too! I'm glad Laurent is delivering to my area. Thank you :) - Augusta,W14
Stars
I genuinely wish I was leaving a different review, as we were excited and anticipating this meal. The fish fillet was small and thin, the vegetable ratatouille covering the rice barely seen. There was, however plenty of rice - almost all the takeaway container represented rice. The overall dish was lacking seasoning and any taste as a matter of fact. I am really sorry to be saying this. I wish I was writing superlatives... On a positive note - the delivery came on time and the courier was very friendly. - Ekaterina,W14
Stars
Excellent meal, especially the lavender chocolates and prawns which were both very, very good. Laurent hand delivered it, which we found a particularly nice touch! - Lauren,W9
Stars
Delicious meal by Laurent. Mash potatoes were superb, best I've had in a long time. - Andy,NW6
Stars
nice piece of turbot, beatifully cooked. - robert,W9
Stars
Both the lamb and the sea bream were absolutely delicious. The portion was just right, although my boyfriend probably could have polished more. - Eliza,NW3
Stars
scallops and the prawn starters were delicious although we think a little over priced. Lamb was divine, very tender and delicious...mashed potatoes I'm afraid were a little bland. Wonderful meal on the whole! - Tony,W10
Stars
Really nice meal - lamb chops excellent and generous, all really tasty. Will definitely order from again. - Jamie,W2
Stars
Great food. Really good alternative delivery service. V prompt and tasty :) - Luke,NW1
Stars
Seabass delightedly cooked and vegetables add lots of flavor to it. Chocolates make a fine dessert. - Stephanie,W2
Stars
Unfortunately the delivery arrived 40mns late without any notification of the delay. After calling the first time I was told the delivery was about to arrive and yet 20 minutes later and there was still no delivery... It would be good to get text messages advising about delays (tonight was my wife's birthday and the delay came on the wrong day!). The food experience was nice once it had arrived. Both entries were very good, main dishes & desert good. - Jacques,W8
Stars
Both courses were fantastic! I really enjoyed the meal. The only possible complaint is that the main course was slightly smaller than I would hope a main to be, but that was really fine, as the scallop salad was divine and the two together were definitely enough food. - Nicholas,SW1H
Stars
An excellent meal - one of the best Housebites meals I've had. The chicken was tedner and the flavour absoluteley delicious: neither honey nor mustard overpowered. Both the mash and the vegetables were perfectly cooked. And I'm still making my way through the fleur de sel caramel. Thank you, Laurent! - Lynn,NW5
Stars
Delicious as usual. - Luke,W9
Stars
Excellent. Thanks. - Ramita,W10
Stars
Delicious and healthy! Thanks Laurent!!! - Scott,W14

Excellent food - Sam,W14

Great dish - enjoyed it - Amrita,W9
Stars
Superb in every respect! - Nigel,NW3
Stars
Another really tasty meal from Laurent - Cherie,W2
Stars
Lovely diish, personally would have liked some 'heat' such as chilli in it but never the less very tasty! - Tony,W10
Stars
Excellent food & delivered almost early! What a find! - Adrianna,NW10
Stars
Laurent is a wizard with lamb, which we knew, and now with sea bass, which we didn't. Another superb dinner, topped off with a complimentary (and perfect) apple tart. - Arthur,W1H
Stars
Thank you Laurent! An amazing meal shared with friends. We'll be back! - Michael,NW1
Stars
Really enjoyed the meal and grateful to Laurant for accommodating my request for lunch. Food was tasty and arrived on time and at the perfect temperature. - Sanjay,W9
Stars
The food was delicious, and the portions were generous.It was delivered half an hour early which wasn't in fact a problem, but it might have been.I would definitely try something else cooked by Laurent. - Christina,NW3
Stars
Delicious food, delivered promptly. Will be back. - Matthew,W1H
Stars
What a fabulous restaurant worthy meal! The beetroot carpaccio was so fresh and light and the lamb chops were really tender and perfectly flavoured. Laurent took our dietary requirements in his stride! Will definitely be ordering lots more from him. - Jenny,W11
Stars
Excellent meal! Delivered hot and promptly. Will be coming back. Thanks Laurent. - Lambros,NW6
Stars
It was a delicious and amazing , good quality food. I would recommend the chef very highly . Thank you It is more than what I expected for a home delivery food. - ipek,NW8
Stars
The chicken was undercooked but the potatoes were great. Im not going to order anything else via housebites anymore Cheers - Lukasz,NW3
Stars
An amazing meal! Thanks for the canapés ( a lovely touch). - Tony,W10
Stars
Great idea. Well cooked, average presentation. The potatoes were excellent. The main could have been a little hotter but I guess that's always going to be a challenge with take-aways. Perhaps once more chefs on board, delivery times will be reduced. - Robin,W14
Stars
Perfection!!!! Arrived quickly and the lamb was delicious!! - Jon,W2
Stars
Delicious food, using high quiality ingredients and well prepared. Only comment was that portions were on the small side (compared to other Housebites menus). Overall very impressed! - Nigel,NW3
Stars
A good, well-sized portion with a very appetising fig sauce. A gooey, chocolatey pudding to finish and I was full! - Michaela,SW7
Stars
Absolutely delicious and very high quality cooking. I wouldn't hesitate to order from Laurent again! - Tiffany,NW10
Stars
Beet root salad was lovely - Tony,W10
Stars
Very tasty and well prepared, good quality ingredients. The only negative is that the portions were really small (I appreciate cost comes into the equation, but these were significantly smaller than other house bite meals we've had since) and I hope this is something you may be able to address. - Nigel,NW3
Stars
Very yummy, thank you!! - fatima,SW7
Stars
The salad was really tasty, loved the goats cheese. Lamb was good, though the veg were a little oil. Also lots of courgette in the starter and then the main so would have liked a tiny bit more variety. Really enjoyed though and will definitely order again. Thanks Laurent! - Matt,W11
Stars
Delicious. Would order same meal again. - fiona,W9
Stars
Delicious Fast Delivery Would / Will Order Again - Sam,W14
Stars
To come home to no food in the house, find Housebites on google and have a chef deliver a fantastic meal he'd cooked 45mins later was quite a treat. Amazing food, amazing business. Good luck. - Nick,W9
Stars
Amazing amazing amazing. First time we used the service and this chef delivered. We really enjoyed our lamb which was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We'll be making another order soon. Highly recommended. - Ricki,W10
Stars
Food delayed by over half an hour over the original 30min time slot - dean,W1W
Stars
Simply excellent. Good job. - Oliver,W1G
Stars
Sea bass portion size relatively small. Otherwise, beats Deliverance. - Alex,NW1
Stars
Absolutely delicious. I was so pleased as I was not well and was really cheered up by the food. I have been looking for a way to say thanks to him and let him know how much I enjoyed it. I will certainly be using his services again! Best wishes, Tom - Tom,NW3
Stars
Awesome! The Risotto and the Cherry Clafoutis were mouth-watering! - Vivek,SW7
Stars
Osso-Bucco was very tasty and portion generous. I had a preference of Truffle oil mash potato over the Risotto, that came with the Osso Bucco. Having said this, I totally love truffle. Thanks for this nice French provencal break. - Stephanie,W2
Stars
I decided at the last minute thatI was hungry and needed a real meal, and too tired to cook it. The food arrived on tgime, still reasonably hot, and was delicious. Thank you! - anne,NW3
Stars
Lovely food, very prompt and a free brownie! - Daisy,NW6
Stars
Good meal! - Vivek,SW7
Stars
Laurent's cuisine is reliably excellent in terms of ingredients and preparation. He is a master chocolatier, so I always take a pudding when I order from his kitchen. The food is hot when it arrives. Highly recommended--and not just for his beautiful French accent! - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
Nice lamb, rice a bit small. No profiteroles, but, mysteriously, a pot of what seemed to be truffle mix/solid choc sauce! You'd have to be seriously bridget jones to take a spoon to it! - Caroline,W9
Stars
Delicious meal! Only negative......arrived far too early! - Tony,W10
Stars
Scallops were a definite highlight. Sea bass was perfectly dressed and went very well with the salad. Food was nice and hot despite a long delivery distance. Fantastic food - Bali,W1J
Stars
We really enjoyed the lamb and the fish. Simple but restaurant quality. The beet salad was a bit small; but everything was very high quality. - Abbai,W1S
Stars
Food was lovely! Thank you - Karen,W1H
Stars
Once again a great meal from Laurent. Looking forward for the next one :) - Nicolas,W1K
Stars
The food was great and it all arrived warm and on time. It was by far the best takeaway food I've ever ordered and I'm glad I decided to give it a go. Will definitely order again from Laurent! - Nicolas,W1K
Stars
This is the first time that I have used this website, and what a great advert Laurent's cooking is for it. I dont live especially close to Laurent, but he delivered it personally, and it was still at a perfect temperature. The meal was delicious, and even came with a free chocolate fondu for desert! I will certainly be using this Chef again - andrew,NW3
Stars
amazing and tasty. - malachy,W9
Stars
Food was delicious and arrived on time, the Scallops were really good as was the Vegetable stew, although i do think think that the use of the word 'stew' was a little misleading as it was basically rice with vegetables. Will definitely order again. - Giancarlo,NW1
Stars
Chicken was tasty and filling, brownie top-notch - however chef was 40 min late and hadn't read the extra info I'd provided to help him find my address (not on some satnavs), so turned up at the wrong location and had to phone to get step-by-step directions. Not very professional. Hopefully things will be better next time! - Govind,W14
Stars
Laurent always delivers for me--in both senses of the term. The sea-bass was amazing, considering the delicacy of cooked fish; it arrived with crispy skin and delicious, flaky flesh. The pork 'filet mignon' was moist and flavourful. He is a master chocolatier, so his brownie is among the best I've ever eaten. The rocket salad was well-dressed and not at all wilted, with a generous shaving of Parmesan. I also enjoy sharing a few words of French with him, which allows me to hear his beautiful accent. - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
The food was excellent and for a very reasonable price. I will definitely order again! - Karen,W11
Stars
The chicken was excellent - beautifully made and wonderfully moist. The lamb chops could have done with some more meat to be honest but the mash, veg, couscous and rice made up for what was an absolutely delicious meal - will be ordering again - Amrita,W9
Stars
bravo! i love everything, every single thing. i have never experienced, and expected, home delivery food that taste this good. lamb chop was cooked perfectly. the portion was generous. the food was still hot when it arrived. i dont know what else to say other than bravo *standing ovation* - Alsi Meg Marsha,NW6
Stars
Fish was delicious, small potatoes lovely. Chicken was good quality, could have been a little bit spicier. Food could be hotter, think packaging might need reviewing. Very friendly chef and delivery. - Asita,W14
Stars
Another amazing meal from Laurent! Finally was able to get my hands on the Sea Bass as it's usually all sold out by the time I place an order. Well, I can now say I understand exactly why it sells out. Simply delicious. - Karl,NW6
Stars
Absolutely faultless. Delicious, on time, generous portions. Thank you Laurent. See you soon! - Jacqui,NW6
Stars
Laurent's poulet Provencal (reduced tomato, olives, lemon zest) and his take on slow-cooked Boeuf Bourguignon are, as one might expect, exemplary. - Arthur,W1H
Stars
all excellent. il a du talent, ce laurent. - robert,W9
Stars
Wow! The chicken aux olives and beef bourguignone were divine! Thanks Laurent. - Tony,W10
Stars
The duck breast was a delight. The couscous with vegetables tasted a bit like the oil was slightly off. Everything arrived on time. - Farah,NW2
Stars
Both Sea Bass & Duck were cooked excellently, flavours were superb and beyond all expectations the rosti was still crisp even after delivery. Both starters were fine, not likely to set the world alight, but pretty tasty and starters that you wouldn't normally have bothered with the tinkering involved, on a Thursday night - Maxwell,W10
Stars
I very much enjoyed Laurent's sea bass. It was very nicely cooked and delivery was on time and friendly. I will definitely use the service again in the future. Thanks a lot! - Laura,W9
Stars
This is the second meal I ordered from Laurent, the salmon was cooked perfectly and I loved the tapenade in the middle, delicious veggies too. Nice chatting to Laurent as well. Highly recommend this chef. - Dana,W9
Stars
Fantastic meal. The RIbeye was bursting with flavour, as was the Beef Bourguignone. Delicious. Wild crayfish cocktail was amazing as was the chocolate and banana tart. Lovely to have a take out that didn't leave you feeling unhealthy afterwards. - Simon,NW10
Stars
Enjoyed really excellent sea bass, creamy smooth mashed potato and raspberry eton mess with chocolate from Laurent tonight (30.3.12) - delivered on time, with a friendly introduction from the chef himself. Would certainly use again and recommend to others. Will be trying Laurent's other recipes - and chocolates - soon ... Thanks! Keith, W9 - Keith,W9
Stars
I highly recommend Laurents Vegetable risotto! - John,NW6
Stars
The steak was absolutely perfect. The vegetables and salad were lovely too. Everything was fresh and great quality. My only 'negative' comment would be that there was too much chocolate sauce for my liking.. overpowered the desert a bit.. But would def recommend it and look forward to trying more of Laurent's dishes! Scrumptious! - Jacqui,NW6
Stars
Great Sea Bass. You should order some chocolates for the end of the meal! - Chris,NW1
Stars
Absolutely delicious. Arrived on time, and perfectly cooked. Thank you! - Narelle,NW3

As always, Laurent's food was outstanding. The sea bass (our first try, after a dozen orders) was exemplary, with crisp edible skin, the substantial duck breast perfectly tender and delicately sanced (never too sweet, like so many a l'oramge treatments, and still delicious as a left-over the next day). We had the wild mushroom and chestnutt risotto as a surrounding extra, and it couldn't be better. Thank you deeply for imagining, and brokering, such a delightful dining experience. - Arthur,W1H

Love the Housebites concept. Fantastic meal, I really recommend the beetroot carpaccio, it was perfectly dressed and clearly freshly made. Chicken Provencal was another of the favourites, Laurent clearly uses great ingredients. Brownies were delivered nice and warm :) Food was delivered on time and hot. Really enjoyed meeting Laurent too, will definitely order again! - Dana,W9

This was our first try of house bites, so we were slightly apprehensive - we are hard-to-please gourmets. We loved Laurent's food - all of it. We are not that keen on fish normally, but the Sea Bass was so yummy, we could have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner: perfectly filleted and deliciously seasoned. And the salads...! The brownie was to die for. We shall definitely be back. - Anette Voigt,W2

Absolutely fantastic food. We ate it all! Excellent quality and delicious flavours. Credit to Laurent for a great dinner. It's the first time we have used housebites, and it won't be the last for sure. - Kavi,NW3

It was the first time we ordered lamb shank from Laurent @ HouseBite and it was excellent. The meat was tender and the food was warm and comforting. The mixed vegetables were, as always, very well done. To finish, we thought that the apple tart was just too small, but that was just because it was too good and it went down pretty quickly. - Nitin,W2
Stars
Fantastic meal delivered promptly by the chef himself -- really nice touch. The duck was called "the best I've had since I left Montreal" by a houseguest, and was really flavourful and tender. Et les fameux chocolats etaient 'crissement bon' aussi. We will definitely order from Laurent again! - Joel,W9

Another fantastic meal by the chef, promptly delivered as always. Thank you very much for all the treats! Everything was most enjoyable. - Paul,NW6

Excellent food - this was one of the most flavoursome meals we've had from Housebites. - Meg,NW1

We have ordered from Laurent many times now. His cooking is simply delicious - fresh, colourful and very tasty. Delivery is aways prompt and it is a delight to open the boxes and see just how good his food looks. We look forward to another order. This is such a fabulous idea - the average takeaway which disappoints is a thing of the past. - Andrew,W2
Stars
WOW! We tried dishes from Laurent menu and boy were they good. Both the Salad starters were fantastic and the Osso Bucco was out of this world. Delivered early and piping hot by Laurent who was very charming. Will be back for more! - Tony,W10
Stars
Great piping hot food! Was very satisfied! Would definitely recommend! - Kenny,W2
Stars
Great home cooked dishes. Really enjoyed the seabass, very tasty and crisp. Website was also very easy to use and order arrived on time. Definitely will order again soon! - Raphael,NW6
Stars
After a nice chat with Laurent I enjoyed a very good meal. Delicious chicken in a tasty sauce with a fair amount of rice. And the mouth-watering chocolate brownie was still warm when I finished the main. Really good food for a fair price, not the average takeaway! Next time I also have to try some of his chocolates. - Goetz,W9
Stars
Absolutely fantastic food!! Arrived on time, hot and delicious aromas . My wife was raving about it - will be definitely ordering again, thanks Laurent! - Joe,W2
Stars
Both the Veal and the cassoulet were excellent. Service was prompt and friendly in-spite of our address being hard to find. I look forward to ordering again. - Daniel,W2
Stars
Laurent's creamy risotto with mixed wild mushrooms and chestnuts was delicious, and his cassoulet is--as ever--a perfect winter dish, rich and balanced, but pungent. A (gift) side order of roasted parsnips was deeply appreciated by both of us. - Arthur,W1H

more delicious and inventive food by laurent, the chocolate sushi was fun - enjoyed everything - a bientot! - Parvin,NW10

Great food and certainly a very different take on pancakes! - Cherie,W2

This was our second order in 2 weeks. Food was delivered on time and was still warm. Excellent venison stew and truffle potato mash. We would order again. - Anouskha,W2

Absolutely wonderful food, the osso-bucco was deliciously tender and full of flavour. Laurent charmingly hand delivered our dinner very promptly, hot and ready to eat. We're looking forward to seeing what he's cooking next week! - Kate,NW6
Stars
Overall we were happy and yes we would order from this chef again. The meal was delivered on time and as it was Valentines night I guess they were rather busy - the person delivering said they were - and apologised because one of the containers had leaked or was spilling so the delivery was rather messy - these things happen so no biggie. A couple of small gripes though - the food wasn't hot enough, it was decidedly warm or tepid, if we were in a restaurant we would have definitely sent it back and asked for it to be heated more. Also, one item from the order was missing - the wild mushroom risotto was supposed to be served with a parmesan galette, but this wasn't delivered. So there you have it we would be happy to receive similar food in a restaurant - but the delivery was a bit messy, the food could have been warmer and one small item was missing. - Justin,NW6
Stars
This was not quite as good as the first time we ordered, perhaps because Valentines night was very busy. The fish with veg was very nice. The ossobucco was rich and my husband felt the rice with it was too creamy/rich rather than offsetting it, and the gratin of veg was a bit burnt. Chocolate fondue sauce was delicious but not much fruit, so didn't feel the best value at twelve pounds. Nevertheless I am sure we will order again . - susan,NW6
Stars
We really enjoyed our Valentine's meal and the rose was a lovely touch - thank you ! Laurent called us to advise of delivery and of one missing accompaniment, but this was not an issue and we appreciated the call. The food was very tasty, fresh and got to us pretty hot and on time. We have to recommend Laurent's chocolates, especially the dark champagne ones, which are excellent. - Francesca,NW2

Another wonderful meal by chef Laurent and as always delivered hot and on time. Good size portions with a couple of lovely suprises thrown in. Thank you! - Paul,NW6

more delicious food from laurent - the pork and its sauce was very good and the brownie melted in the mouth, the truffles will be a birthday present for someone...looking forward to more meals, thanks - Parvin,NW10

Two beautiful meals. Delivered hot and earlier than expected. Perfectly seasoned and wonderfully cooked. This was our first order and certainly not the last! - George,NW2

A perfect winter meal - the braised beef was melt-in-the-mouth and the winter vegetables are fantastic. Will definitely order again from the same chef. - Jamie,W2
Stars
Both the Cassoulet and the Chocolate Brownie were delicious. Laurent was very prompt and very friendly. - Ros,NW10
Stars
The cassoulet was outstanding, with the haricots firm (not too tough, not too mushy) and perfectly seasoned, the lamb and sausage succulent, the porton generous, and the whole piping hot, even after 1.7 miles on Chef Laurent's bicycle on a cold night. I've already praised the braised beef. We'll return. - Arthur,W1H
Stars
Venison was fantastic. Great quality and value. Can't wait to order again. - Dylan,W11

I tried new dishes this time and they were all successes. Loved the pork especially, but I was impressed that the fish arrived with the skin crisp and the flesh delicately cooked. - Kenneth,NW3

THe meal was wonderful. Only tiny critic would be the piece of fish was small (especially compared to the veggies and mashed potatoes). All the same, it was wonderfully cooked and flavourful - Kate,W10
Stars
The seasoning is amazing and the flavours sublime. I am sure to order from Laurent again. - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
The beef was very tender and the mash was delicious,the best so far....I would have liked to see more than 5\6 cubes of meat in each portion. - CLAIRE,NW1
Stars
Braised beef superb, rib-eye good and well-seasoned, but a bit chewy (what steaks can anyone procure at this modest price?), but rescued by perfect bordelaise. Both versions of potato excellent, winter vegetables equally so, especially chestnuts--and are those parsnips we spy in the picture? If so, please, please. Galette very, very good--no cloying oversweetness, plenty for four, not just two. We will be back to Chef Laurent, happily. The whole concept is exciting, and we'll spread the word. Our only regret is thare aren't more of your chefs serving this central area. Like most stay-at-homes, we can't readily pick up. - Arthur,W1H

Excellent food & service. Meal arrived piping hot. Just like a really good home cooked meal. Can't wait for menu to be enlarged. - Deborah,NW8

Orderered housebites two evenings in a row for din - I guess that's where addiction starts! Picked Lamb navarin this time - really nicely marinated and well cooked. Went for the traditional Galette des Rois for dessert for a few of us. A nice and light taste (knowing how much calories a galette could leave you with) However, I just had one question - what happened to the Crown?! (couronne) - Stephanie,W11
Stars
Very nice meal. The Scottish Beef is really tasty and full of flavour and so is the mash (tastes very home-made) . I also appreciated the generous portion size. I enjoyed the Pear and Almond tart - would have love few more bits of pear in there. my fav remains the beef. - Steph,W11

Just had the most delicious meal cooked and delivered by LAURENT ROSSI in Nottinghill. On time, still hot and plenty of it. absolute BARGAIN. nice. - Guy,W11

Quality was good however I found thr portion of sea bass a tad small. However both seabass and sausage meal was very tasty as was side portion of potatoes - Patrick,W9
Stars
Marvellous brownie, without qualifications. Pork was well-seasoned... The autumn vegetables were excellent. The potatoes were well-seasoned, but floury. I would try this chef's offerings again. - Kenneth,NW3
Stars
Great dish, would have loved some sauce though... - Philip,W2

We were wild about everything except the rice to go with the osso bucco which we thought was a little too creamy/sweet. Fabulous mendiants! - robert,W9

I was amazed to see Laurent himself deliver the food and it was quite an experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my sea bass and citron tart and Lauren was an extremely likeable bloke. I really hope this catches on and all being well you guys should get a mention in either jan or febs homes and gardens magazine. - matt,NW6
Stars
Absolutely fabulous meal - salad was perfectly dressed, pasta was hot and heavenly. And the sides were so big I have leftovers for lunch. The tarte aux citron was also divine. The food arrived on time but Laurent still apologised for being late which was very sweet. But the icing on the cake was a box of chocolates hand made by the chef - my favourite so far is the Salsa, a yummy blend of chilli and chocolate - wow..! WIll be going in search of these at the Portabello farmers market. Merci Laurent! - Khushi,NW8

Fantastic meal. I have ordered from House Bites twice now, both times with the same chef. Each meal has been superb. I have been telling everyone about yourselves and the chef I have ordered from (Laurent). - TRINA,W9

everything was delivered on time plus a side order of potatoes. the food was well cooked, hot and tasty. the portion of fish was however quite small unlike the photo on the site. overall i am happy to recommend m. rossi. - robert,W9
Stars
It should be stated that the chicken is a poussin, rather than describing it as a baby chicken, as one gets the impression that it's a small chicken from the photo. The best thing about this meal were the roasted potatoes. They were very good. The mixed vegetables (carrots and sprouts) were ok. - Sandra,W10
Stars
The Mediteranean lamb stew very good with succulent tender lamb, full of flavour and we really enjoyed it. This would be a dish that I would order again. However the meat balls and spaghetti was bland with very little or no sauce at all and lacking in flavour and seasoning. The fillet de sea bass was was very disappointing as the bass was almost wafer thin and nothing like the picture advertised. Me and my wife were surprised as to the difference between the picture and the actual dish. We will not be ordering this dish again. - Toufan,W12

Absolutely delicious dinner. Hot and delivered on-time. We had 8 people for a dinner party and everyone loved it. Makes for the easiest dinner party! - Caroline,W11

Everything was gorgeous, again. Crust on the cheesecake was to die for! But the surprise hit of the night was by far the wild mushroom tortellini. Was going to order the sea bass that was available prior in the day but I guess you have to act fast on the more popular items. Regardless, everything was DELISH! Thank you, Laurent! - Krista,NW6

Excellent meal, lovely fish and a brilliant mousse. Fast and good value. - Jamie,NW6

Fantastic food. It was fresh and well packaged. I will be back for more! Loved his subtle use of chocolate. - matt,W9

The roast vegetables were excellent. The daube had the right taste but was a little bit dry. Compared with the Traiteur at L'Absinthe it was more expensive but a close run thing in terms of quality but I will certainly use Housebite again and I make my comments entirely to be helpful since working in the theatre I dislike critics! - Braham,NW3

Everything was tasty and fresh. Some really nice flavour combinations. The roasted vegetables were a very surprising treat. - Rhiannon,NW3

Unfortunately Laurent missed our order. We finally received the food an hour and twenty minutes late, after chasing Laurent and HouseBites' customer service. Even though this meal was up to a bad start, HouseBite's customer service was superb and Laurent was extremely apologetic. We were given extras (extra meal, chocolate), a full refund, and a complimentary meal. More importantly Laurent's food was superb. - alireza,NW6
Stars
The meal was indeed excellent but the chef's residence was difficult to find in the dark because it was poorly signed. Portions were generously sized. They were also well flavoured and perfectly cooked, and well packed. They stayed warm after a twenty minute journey home. - Shaie,NW2
Stars
Delicious mains, and good portion sizes. We all felt very full afterwards! The chocolate mousses were superb. Housebites is a great new discovery, and we will definitely be asking Laurent to cook for us again! - Charlotte,W11
Stars
All I have to say is WOW! I ordered a bit of everything as I wanted my husband and I to see if we would be taking advantage of Housebites again in the future. I was so impressed with the quality of the food. You'd think you'd lose some of the appeal/appearance of the dishes because it comes in takeaway boxes but this is not the case! It was delicious - the mains/sides/starters were hot, the portions were generous and soooo tasty. And what can I say about the mousse? It was, simply, the best chocolate mousse we've ever had. I only wish I would have ordered two so I didn't have to share but... c'est la vie! I will definitely be ordering from Laurent and Housebites again and recommending to friends and neighbors. Krista Hind Kilburn NW6 - Krista,NW6

I really enjoyed everything about my experience with housebites! Ordering was easy (although Paypal can be kind of a pain), but I found a chef in my area and ordered in just a few minutes, which was great. Food was on time, chef brought it himself with i thought was such a great touch! He gave me a few serving tips (as I had basil oil with my fish) - how cool is that! And food itself was a delight. I've already tweeted and told friends about you guys - I think it's a great concept and worked really, really well! - Kate,W10
Stars
The food from Laurent was amazingly good. I've never thought of myself as a fan of Chicken Provencale as a dish but after eating Laurent's I am a convert ! My side of de terre dauphinoise and Rasberry chocolate mousse were of a matching high standard and very generously sized. I eat out at a lot of nice restaurants but have never had a better meal than this. I will certainly be ordering again soon. - Paul,NW1
Stars
The food was delicious, restaurant quality and arrived piping hot and looking very appetising. We would definitely use housebites, and Laurent in particular, again. The sea bass was cooked perfectly and the chocolate mousse divine! - Anne,NW8
