This restaurant offers really lovely, well balanced and interesting food and the wine list was extensive. Once we had ordered the service was prompt and attentive. But it did take a while for things to get ordered. It was half an hour from arriving before we were seated with a drink. The staff seemed slightly flummoxed because there were two large outdoor tables with big family groups. So we stood at the entrance for several minutes without even being acknowledged, for example.

The food was delicious and even better that they can meet different dietary requirements (vegan and halal)! The service was great, the staff were super friendly. The place was quite busy and loud so a bit hard to hear everyone at the table (7 ppl) but I guess that's just shows how great the place is.

Delicious food, pleasant ambiance. The aircon was too cold and breezy, and the staff kindly turned it off for us. The music was 80s pop and a bit jarring - something more chilled would be a better soundtrack to dinner dates. On a Sunday night there were few diners, plenty of space, and quick service.

The food was supposed to be a Vietnamese/French fusion but was much more Vietnamese than French (we lived in Paris for four years). The dishes were OK but tended to be quite bland. We have had better food in a Vietnamese café.

The host who met us at the front created an embarrassing fuss over one of our party not having a mobile phone to check in with. He insisted this was the only method available and lectured us condescendingly about how seriously the restaurant takes that registration duty. It was a dreadful start. We considered leaving.
The fact is the law requires that a written registration or assistance to use online registration be made available. It is also discrimination, in our case - age discrimination - to not do so.
He later apologised, but that scene left a bad taste in an otherwise delightful lunch.

The twice cooked pork belly was very disappointing. It was overcooked, nearly burned. The watermelon that accompanied it was, for some reason, mostly white rind and inedible.

Restaurant with an attitude sadly.
Booked based on reviews but was very disappointed with the service. Food was good but service was so obnoxious I can't comfortably recommend the restaurant. The wait staff made us feel like we were imposing on their night and the Concierge was incredibly rude when we had an extra person join us even though the day before we had spoken and he had assured me this "would absolutely not be a problem".
His attitude all but ruined what was meant to be a fun night out for my husbands birthday.
Our group of 10 will NOT be back!

Food was devine and staff very understanding when two out of the four guests ran late due to traffic and parking issues.
Food service was fairly well spaced out for the banquet to allow time to enjoy all dishes.

A lovely evening though we found the noise level inside made it very difficult to communicate. We couldn't hear our wait person at all.
Did find the plate clearing a bit rushed as had one experience where we were still eating the egg plant and the dish, with some still in it, was whisked away.
Felt at times as though the lady serving us was a bit bored and not overly interested as she appeared condescending but to be fair she may have been having an off night.
The bar staff and maître' d were all very friendly and helpful.
Would recommend but with warning re noise level and would definitely recommend the GG & T's.
