We started in the beautiful sunny day light with a carafe of prosecco and our mixers, whilst we perused the very exciting menu! We were at the 2pm sitting, but from the looks of things there were still some of those who were at the 11am sitting hanging around at the bar..!
To start you’re served some beautiful antipasti, melon, pastries and breads with Nutella and marmalade. Yes, you read that correctly – to start with!
The meats were beautiful, and were delicious with the melon. The pastries, well they happen to be some of my favourite brunch items, so I was very excited about our chocolate twist, croissant and chaussan aux pommes (a kind of apple pie/tart) – and rightly so!
Just look at that Nutella – how delicious – I wish I could have another pot of it right now!
Didn’t I say these were absolute beauties?
The bread was lightly drizzled with olive oil which was wonderful for the meats, however, I wish there had been a few without oil so that we could have enjoyed the marmalade and Nutella a little more.
So we sat giggling away, mixing ourselves all sorts of Bellinis
When I’d stopped admiring how incredible the food was, I turned to having a look at the venue itself – and boy, did it live up to its cool Italian vibe.
I adored being able to make our own Bellinis, with whichever mixer we liked. It was really lovely to be able to change drinks or even just have prosecco on its own with each time our glass emptied.
If you’re at a table for two you choose two different pizzas which frankly, is waaaay more than enough! We opted for the English Gentleman’s Breakfast and the the Bunga Hollandaise which were incredible! If you go I highly recommend the combination – it definitely feels very brunchy, but boy oh boy is it so good on a pizza. I won’t lie, I was a little hesitant, but it was oh so good.
My only little complaint was that by this point the staff were quite difficult to get a hold of – we asked for another bottle of prosecco and it took us asking four times to actually get given it which was quite annoying, but we did appreciate that they were very busy. Even still, it was quite frustrating.
As you can see, I clearly enjoyed what it was that I was eating…! I don’t think I’ve ever had such a great pizza in London – and I really did love the alternative toppings, it was incredible!
In between courses there was a lot of (very questionably good!) karaoke, which was hilarious to listen to. Even though Andy tried to convince me it was a good idea for me to sign up, I still didn’t have the guts for it!
Lastly, for pudding we had a lovely nut butter ice cream. I have to say it was the least impressive course, but having raved about the first two courses I really wouldn’t take that as a bad sign!
If you’re looking for a fantastic brunch with friends, that’s got an amazing atmosphere, especially for a special occasion, I’d highly recommend Bunga Bunga. We’re already looking at going back for Andy’s brunch – and if my review wasn’t a good enough recommendation I hope that this is a good sign!

Our brunch was complimentary but all opinions and food envy are my own!
