    Booked a nice table of two for my birthday and it was beyond expectations!!! We were given the best table in the restaurant (a booth at the back overseeing the whole dining room), service was very friendly and professional, menu has a large choice of dishes and all tasted great! We will definitely be coming back, thanks to the team for such a wonderful experience!!!

    I came for lunch and opted for an array of small plates. On the plus side the croquettes were nice, and also the artichoke hearts. But the padron peppers were too salty to eat and the calamari was so dry as to be similarly off-putting. The wagyu bao were ok but not worth a tenner each. The peppers were removed from my bill but even after that the £80 I was charged for this food was a massive waste of money.

    We sat on a table by the bar and the food and drinks were great but the service was very slow (didn’t really feel looked after). However, The servers were very polite and tried to be accommodating when they did make it over to our table. It was the perfect place to have drinks and small bites with friends.

    The food was excellent and all of us enjoyed the meal immensely. The service was very courteous, efficient and good; we all had a most enjoyable family meal/celebration. The restaurant was slightly darker than I had anticipated but our table was well placed- enough room to sit comfortably and the noise levels were pretty good for a crowded dining area. I was very happy with my choice of venue for an important meal!

    An ok place but over priced for what it is . Not bad but for the prices being charged the food and ambience should be special. Sadly it is not. The doors on the toilets bang every time someone uses them and can be heard very loudly in the dining area upstairs Maybe that’s why the background music is also to high? Wine very much overpriced If you are young and don’t have a lot of dining experience then you might think it’s ok.
