    Great service, music and ambience. Food was average. Silly that you had to pay a supplement for extras such as rice to go with your mains. Had a good time, but the food was disappointing. Not the best value - been to better.

    The food was okay. Sushi platter went down well but the duck was not it, especially as the chef would not take the preference on cooking style and it was medium only Aka raw & a jaw workout! Lamb chops were excellent (because I refused the chefs rare-medium mandatory) and the black cod was the typical black cod with nothing too outstanding. My biggest issue was the poor customer service. The front of house staff were great but that’s where it stopped with the waiters being very slow and a impolite. We waited 20 minutes for our mains to be cleared when we clearly had finished, then the dessert menu came out only to wait another 15 minutes to be asked for our order and it got so bad we didn’t order and asked for the bill and a card machine which took 30 minutes to come even though the till was 3 steps away. I ended up having to stand and gesture to leave without paying for them to bring the bill. It’s an experience if you like places that are socially desirable but there is nothing special to this place and you’re better spending your money elsewhere!
