Food great .just a few things let them down.table warmer not a light so food went cold very quickly.
Fantastic food and wine, exemplary service. A quite excellent lunch experience and I am looking forward to returning soon
Outstanding food and service. You pay for what you get, however the quality and flavours is absolutely outstanding. Comes highly recommended.
We had a fantastic time celebrating our Birthday! Great food, great restaurant and a great atmosphere! Absolutely going to come back!
Forgetting the main dish of a diner when their companions have been brought theirs is a mistake that a really good restaurant wouldn't allow to happen. Service is a bit hit and miss, and the routinely asked "Is everything ok?" feels more like a tick box exercise than a real interest in the diner's experience. Chewy (instead of crisp) tofu, a delayed main dish, undercooked aubergine, plain and vegetable noodle dishes that looked identical but are priced differently, and no offer to hang coats up on a rainy day made the experience not that great.
This was my 4th visit and I was just as satisfied as all visits. The food is absolutely delicious and the service as per usual was wonderful, the wine was also particularly good. I always recommend AquaEight to friends. It can be a dressed up dinner with cocktails or a casual get together with good food, love this place
This was a wonderful experience from start to finish!
The staff are lovely! The food was superb! The cleanliness was so good every where was sparkling!
This was my first visit certainly not the last!
Well done to all involved 😊
Was very nice and posh food was so nice and will go again
Celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary with an excellent meal and some very nice wine. The serving staff were polite, courteous, friendly and made us most welcome. Looking forward to our next visit.
Excellent food with professional, pleasant and attentive service. The combination means that we will visit again.
Went to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary and the staff were very accommodating and managed to make the meal feel special. We had a very lovely hostess and the food was amazing as usual.
We had an excellent meal here for my husband's birthday! Having 2 daughter's it's been a while since we had a meal out so we wanted to go somewhere special.
We had the sharing starter which they kindly swapped one item for us which was delicious! We then had 3 different meats (the wasabi steak was amazing!) and sticky rice. My husband was then surprised by being sung happy birthday too along with a delicious cheesecake which was lovely!
Followed by a cocktail in the bar downstairs it was such a perfect night!
Great food and service, only down side was our table was squeezed in and there was very little room, quite uncomfortable. We would definitely go again as the food was first class, maybe I'll request a table where I can move the chair.
Best restaurant around , food absolutely amazing, good relaxing feel & staff all top quality especially Oscar
We have often come here for special occasions mostly having the speciality set meal - this time no different fabulous presentation - food delicious- but this time one course less and a little more expensive- but I suppose they can afford to as the reviews are always so good- The Fletchers - Please nite - No deals on set-meals!
Some some of the tables face a wall making it claustrophobic and reduce and ambience. Mirrors on these wall would open open the dining experience.
Lovely food as always, great service definately my favourite place to eat out in Ipswich!
One of the best places in Ipswich to eat and reasonably priced midweek and quieter.
First visit, but will certainly be back. Very impressed and staff were very friendly and helpful.
I have been to Aqua Eight three times over 7 years (do not in the area hence frequency). We always have an excellent time. The staff are very friendly, the service is excellent as is the food. I will be back!
Our visit was for a birthday meal. The food was absolutely fantastic, we chose the more expensive set menu and it was fabulous. The staff incredibly attentive, efficient and friendly and the birthday boy was given a birthday cake at the end of the meal. This was a surprise to all of us and was a real treat. We went to the earlier sitting at 6.30 and it was packed by the time we left at 9.00. A word of warning, the drinks are on the pricey side and it's easy to get carried away with the ambience of it all! While the food was excellent value the drinks bill made it more expensive that we'd planned. Will definitely return as a special treat.
Excellent food as always. Was very busy so extremely noisy but this did not detract from the yummy food!
We had a selection from the small eats, meats, fish and noodles and it was all amazing. It was my third time here but my friends first time and they absolutely loved it. Food is delicious and service is great
Was really impressed! Hadn’t been in a few years and it didn’t disappoint. I mentioned on the booking it was a birthday and on arrival they had put balloons and decorations on the table and brought out a free dessert with candles at the end which was a lovely touch. Felt really looked after, and the food was great as always!
Superb as ever
Food excellent.... wine over priced for what it is.... a Thursday but not much ambiance perhaps more atmosphere at weekend.
Would go back purely for the food....
Really enjoyed our meal, it was a perfect place to take family.
We will absolutely have another meal here as the food is brilliant.
Their attention to detail is always good, their attention to customers is just right too - never fails to impress, thanks!
Great restaurant the food was excellent along with very good service. We will definitely return
Definitely the best Asian restaurant I have ever been to anywhere in the UK! The food is just amazing, the service is excellent. Would highly recommend it!!
Disappointed. Haven’t been for a while. Menu changed and not improved. I wouldn’t have known The chicken rolls had chicken in them. The dumplings were also bland. The service wasn’t great - I Don’t appreciate a waiter chewing gum at the table and general disrespectful attitude to a customer from the younger waiters. Sadly we won’t be returning.
Looked online for a restaurant to dine before a night at the theatre and we weren’t disappointed. Food amazing as were the staff. Exceptionally clean, table laid out very well and staff very attentive.
Would highly recommend. We live 45 miles away so abit of a trek to return if we just want to dine but we would certainly return if we were going to the theatre again or maybe shopping
Came with friends, our first time but not theirs, they had recommended it and wasn't disappointed. I am celiac and the gluten free menu was superb. Food was delicious. Service was very friendly and helpful but got a bit slow as they got busier. Will defo be back.
As always hospitality was outstanding and food out of this world! First time for my Mum & Sister and they cannot wait to return! Thank you for looking after us
Friendly staff and very tasty food. Little disappointed to receive mango and passionfruit ice cream at the end instead of vanilla which was ordered but it still tasted nice.
Never disappoints!!! This is our favourite restaurant loacally and the perfect palce to celebrate!!
This is more your high end restaurant for your budget but is totally worth it. Food was sensational and service very good. All made spectacular with a voucher for money off through Open Table. Would go again in a heartbeat.
From write up it has and recommendations from others I thought the food with the prices to pay was going to be amazing.
However very on a par to much cheaper Chinese restaurants and also only doing a set menu even with the restaurant seeming very quiet and staff standing around.
Price didn’t reflect the quality so little disappointed.
Excellent food, great service & vibrant atmosphere.
First visit and will definitely return. Very busy Saturday night but unflustered waiting staff and only a short delay in main course arriving. Excellent interesting unusual Asian dishes. High end serving dishes plates and glasses. Cant wait to go again.
