    Love this place usually, but it all felt very rushed, was very disappointed about paying £3.95 for a warm can of coke, not even from the pump. Portions have got far smaller, and chicken tenders were sloppy

    I'm not sure how this won restaurant of the year 2022. The food was adequate but not magnificient. I had to send cold sweet potato fries back twice before hot ones came out. My wife's grilled chicken was 20% skin and the skin was gelatinous. My burger was pretty good, but overpriced. Ultimately I wouldn't seek to return nor recommend it to friends.

    Not quite sure how they won restaurant of the year in 2022. Food was like a tgi Fridays on an off day. My beef Wellington wrap was basically shredded beef in a cheese sauce. The chips were some of the least tasty I have ever had. I didn’t finish my main. Will definitely not go back.

    Food was good for what it was, it actually was served too quickly! A little expensive for what is basically fast food, but I guess taking into account of the location I suppose that was understandable !

    Service was quite rude felt rushed like on a conveyor belt after 1 hour I could see supervisors or managers trying to tell the waitress to get rid of us. It was busy I get that but we have the table for a set amount of time. And should not be made to feel unwelcome and rushed.

    Waited for a while for our order to be taken, when we received our starter only 1 came. Had the chase the other 2 and they can separately so we ate at separate times. The mains came correctly but when the bill came it was incorrect as they added an extra starter onto it!!!!!.....................Very disappointing I'm afraid.

    Well Happy London?! I’m not so sure?! Staff were unfriendly and not accommodating, no smile, no please, no thank you . I added a special request that it was my friends birthday, the restaurant does look pretty which is why I chose it, when we arrived it was fairly empty, however we got put on a very small table in the corner by a stack of high chairs, I asked if we could move to a nicer table with plant foliage and didn’t get a response. We decided to move ourselves as the restaurant was still fairly empty we sat at the table for a good 15 minutes before a member of staff came snd told us to move as this particular table was reserved in the next 15 minutes, we were told we could move to another table but was pointed out at least half of them we couldn’t pick!, after deciding what we wanted me pressed the call button the waiter just looked at us from the till area, we waved him and he came over saying we hadn’t buzzed him, funny we pressed the button whilst he was there snd his watch buzzed! He the said he would be back snd went and served two other tables in the meantime another member of staff took our order. Do not expect all your cocktails to look as they do in the menu photos you will be disappointed, I had a pink gin cocktail which I have to say was nice my friend however had a pretty candy floss cocktail which was basically a glass with bright pink liquid! No decoration! The food arrived the chicken quesadillas were so greasy with barley any resemblance to chicken and was cold. The crispy chicken I ordered was also not hot, we were not offered any condiments to go with our food. At this point we did call to speak to a manager which told us the staff were tired and had just got over the Christmas period, which I’m afraid doesn’t stop good manners?! He did take our food away and we received fresh food which was much better. Just a real shame as it was a special occasion and a pretty restaurant the staff just let it down!

    All of our food arrived cold. That's obviously a slight annoyance with one meal but it was 2 meals each for a party of 4. So 8 meals that were cold. At a bare minimum you would expect most meals to be hot, but this really took the biscuit. Once we had complained to the waitress, she avoided our table for the rest of our visit, which was neat. Really dire experience. Such a shame too because the variety of food available promises a lot.

    My sister had found lashes and a bug in her drink which we found horrific. We were so disgusted we just paid and left. For a restaurant with a rating of 5 for hygiene and voted one of the best all of last year this was very disappointing!!

    A useful call button to call the waiters to place your order. Main course wasn’t to my taste the chicken skin was flabby not crispy and it was thigh meat not breast so just wasn’t to my taste. One thing that would put us off returning is literally as they gave us our starters, they said our main course would be out in 3 minutes. We hadn’t even finished our starter when our main was brought! Far too rushed! Our mash and sweet potato fries were only lukewarm not hot. I wouldn’t rush to return based on this visit.

    The food was alright, it felt like it needed some seasoning to it. Other than that the food was good, another issue was service, me and my date thought the button to call a waiter was broken as we waited like 10mins for someone to come to our table then when we asked the waitress if our button is broken she tested it and it was fine. After we finished our meal we asked for the bill which we then ended up waiting another 10mins as we saw the waiter do all the other things but what we asked, he started prepping a new table, taking plates away etc

    I had an occasion as anniversary but they didn't prepare anything for my occasion, that made me disappointed. We have ordered 2 starter and 5 main. The starter were good and the main were not as we expected, the portion is small as a main portion even the chicken dish was not good at all. I will not recommend to anyone who want to celebrate an occasion, there are several restaurants around the city which can prepare an awesome celebration. And even not to anyone who want to have it as a main meal. It could be good idea as a tapas however the prices will be expensive if it will consider as a Tapas
