Food excellent as always. The woman DJ livened things up while keeping the volume at a manageable level. Could still have a conversation without having to shout. Service professional and generally slick.

This is the second time I have been there in a row where the food was disappointing for half of the party and had to be returned to the kitchen because it was far too salty. This was the case with 2 different dishes. Though they offered to replace the food with another dish but at 10.15 pm -too late. This is the same dish that was perfect the first 3 visits and disappointing the last 2 . They need to address this. The staff are nice though the service has been very slow in general. Ambience is nice and wonderful interior but with so many fantastic restaurants they need to improve

Getting to the point, this was a really irritating place to go. 10 minutes into our meal 2 people sat in the (very, very near) adjacent table and followed with a loud debate about what to eat and then each for the next 20 minutes separately phoning their fathers to tell them about their lives, their businesses, how much they were paying their staff, etc, etc. Strange and ghastly. I asked and was told that Brasserie of Light does not have a mobile phone policy and that their guests were free to behave in this way - while acknowledging that the tables were very close together. No offer was made to move us to another table. This narrative was repeated by a manager when I asked to speak to one at the end of the meal. This was a real pity and it would otherwise e quite a nice place - but perhaps thai is the problem with places that are "destinations" for dining!

Went with a girlfriend and would recommend for a nice girls night out venue. As there were only 2 of us, we had a table which is very close to those next to you so that was the only bad point, as your conversation was heard by at least 4 other people. But great cocktails, food and our server was fantastic and informative to our dietary requirements.

We had a table for two...we had a long lunch and there were four tables for two next to us ...all empty...my daughter arrived and was told we had left...we hadn’t and we were asked to move to the bar as it was policy to reclaim the table despite the empty tables not even having been cleared. They had no more diners waiting yet we were asked to move as it was ‘policy’
What a shame...I was embarrassed...my friend left unhappy...all the good work undone by staff who misled my daughter who was upset, I was embarrassed and my friend unhappy...not clever.
Chances of return...none...and we eat out frequently

Aesthetically wonderful. Great hustle and bustle. Food good but not exceptional. Service is terrible, terrible, terrible. Endless mistakes - such as gin and tonic turning up with no gin in a glass full of ice; server not writing down the food order and a colleague appearing 20 minutes later to ask us what we had ordered; servers studiously avoiding diners’ eyes.

Surpassed my expectations in terms of decor and food quality.

Staff were relaxed and friendly.

Had drinks at the bar and tried some of the cocktails.

Starters & mains were delicious in particular the burrata and smoked tomatoes which came under a glass cloche filled with smoke. The blackened cod was better than sushi samba’s and the side of rice and quinoa flavoursome. Full on favour in every bite and reasonably priced all considered.

If you are a Barbie girl in a Barbie world .... this is for you kiddo ... especially the pink marble & mirror loos!
