Lovely surroundings and decent service. The food wasn’t great though. All of the dishes we ordered wee really lacking in flavour and not a patch on Roka, where we dined the week before.
Cocktails good though.

I think the Ned is fantastic, the decor and atmosphere is one of the best in London. Loved the live band. At Kaia the food and cocktails are great but the whole experience was so rushed and has been like that everytime I have been. You don’t really get to enjoy your food and drink when you feel under pressure to hurry up because they need the table back. It ruined it for me to be honest sorry to say.

Came here for a business meeting and my guests and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Good food, staff a little slow on service, topping up wine etc which one expects when paying these kind of prices. Overall a good experience and the food was absolutely amazing with a great selection.

Kaia is the best sushi restaurant in the city! We opted for the salmon poke bowl last night as we tend to overindulge in sushi usually and had extra tuna, my partner had the other way around. The food is always amazing taste wise and design and overall good atmosphere and evening. We both had red wine which we prefer to white. The service as always excellent and we liked that although all the tables were fully booked the service was speedy and very friendly. Not having people everywhere standing is a great change! And the lovely live music.

The Ned is very spacious and full of life.
Kaia had excellent quality food and tentative helpful staff.
Will come Back again soon and maybe you will restart your afternoon tea once Covid is over/ settled.

Food was great as always. Good to have the singer back too. Only downside was we felt quite rushed eating as only having 90 minutes at the table and having to wait a while to place our orders

I went to Kaia for a date night with my partner. The food was delicious, we shared a platter (Wagu roll was unreal) and we also ordered a tuna tartare roll. This was more than enough food and everything was flavoured excellently. The service was amazing, the staff were so friendly and attentive. The table we sat at seemed high off the ground which was a little bit of an annoyance when needing to leave the table.. felt like I needed a step! Other than that, the perfect night out.

The food was delicious, surpassed our expectations. I knew Ned London is a landmark place/hotel in London.
The table/chairs are old (torn and worn) but the room/ambiance is truly incredible. Huge space, and busy most times of the day.

But the food was excellent - black cod was probably the best fish I had in London ever.

We were offered 1.5 hours for a table of 4. We hoped there would be some flexibility given the cocktails and sushi preparation takes time.
The sushi was great and we decided to have more and placed a 2nd order only to be told by a bossy lady that we had to leave in 15 minutes. No flexibility given we wanted more food so we cancelled the 2nd round of sushi and left still hungry.
Ww then managed to get a place at the bar at Electric Diner at the Ned for desert and coffees. I walked round and checked if our table at Kaia had been given to another 4 party group, but no it was vacant all evening. So God knows why we were rushed out and had to cancel our food order.
Really poor management decision making. The Spanish waitress who served us was great but the lady who said she was the manager requires further training on how to delight customers!
