I was expecting a chill 1930s East Asian vibe. What I got was more akin to a south beach hotel bar circa 2003. Loud yet bland and tired “DJ” tunes played so loudly I couldn’t hear my dining companion. The crowd a mix of elderly men with suspiciously younger women, wealthy families with iPad entrances pre-teens, and a smattering of corporate dinners and curious locals.

The food came out nearly instantaneously. Which makes me think they just have racks of all their “small plates” racked up and ready to go. You know. Like Burger King.

Four plates were on our table before the sommelier had even brought our wine. Which, once it arrived, was room temperature. As it was a white Coravin, this simply shouldn’t have happened. Respect, however, to the sommelier who rescued the situation by cracking a fresh bottle out of the cellar and free pouring our glasses.

We asked them to slow their roll with the food. They said of course and proceeded to bring the four — well three, since they forgot one of our orders — plates about three minutes later.

Once we pointed out they had forgotten the grilled Padron peppers, they dutifully brought some out. With our coffee.

For £120 per person I’d expect a bit more. Ramsey. Your kitchen is a nightmare.

Never been so disappointed with a new restaurant. Only open two weeks, but staff have a let of training ahead of them. Noise level of the music, unacceptable. Couldn’t hear my partner across the table. Ask to change our table because of the music, and we’re told ‘nothing else available’ although we could see vacant tables in quieter part of the restaurant. We were only moved when I said we were leaving. A bad experience. Never again!

Reasonably understated, but still rather glam decor. Playful kitsch Asian cat motif throughout. Helpful and well-meaning staff. But the food itself ranged from just passable (sushi, gyoza) to outright dreadful. Suitable for a meal with friends and good company in a stylish setting where the food isn’t important. I would avoid taking clients there or dates (unless of course trying not to eat).

Overall, it is a decent meal. I don't think the food was extraordinary which I would expect for the prices. I wouldn't come back again-- I don't think Asian needs to be done by Ramsay.. there are better ones down the road

Service was fair, nothing exceptional. On occasion lacklustre. Food was really average with the sushi too cold and the concept of shared dining contrived. Starters and mains arriving randomly.
Basically this a your run of the mill Asian fusion restaurant with the interior lacking character and no sign or sense of Chinese influence anywhere... very noisy and acoustics are terrible

A sleek makeover of Maze, Ramsay’s previous restaurant on this site. The staff (lots of them) were very friendly although we did feel somewhat rushed to place our order.

The food was good, if not exceptional. The Pork & Ginger Gyoza and Monkfish & Bacon Skewer were the highlights of the 7 sharing plates we ordered (on top of snacks to start) and the Squid Tempura wasn’t far behind. However, the Tuna Tataki lacked oomph and the Razor Clam, despite its fresh flavours, was let down by it being served in its shell. For one person, this would be fine (I would imagine eating the chopped clam out of the shell like an oyster) but when it’s a sharing plate between four people, there’s not so much to go around, and difficult to pick up with chopsticks.

The biggest gripe about the food, however, was the Miso Black Cod. I can think of three other restaurants within 10 minutes walk of Lucky Cat that do this dish and do it so well. I mean, really, really well. Lucky Cat’s Miso marinade lacked the depth of flavour I would have expected and rather than firm flakes of cod the fish fell apart to the extent we didn’t pick with chopsticks rather we had to scoop the cod up instead.

We did retire to the bar afterwards and the cocktails chosen by a throw of the dice were interesting and the waiting staff excellent.

I’ll try again once this new restaurant has settled in to it’s rhythm.

I made it clear I was shellfish intolerant and this was acknowledged. However, the waitress, having explained it was an Asian tapas sharing type menu, let me order several dishes. As the dishes stated to arrive it became apparent that I could only eat about 50% of them. That spoilt the meal for all of us.
We arrived on time but were told that we would have to wait 15 minutes so should sit at the bar. Then as soo. As I drinks arrived the table was ready... 5 minutes... just an excuse to encourage ya to have cocktails. Not cheap.
The restaurant is hugely over priced and over staffed. They were falling over each other. It was like Piccadilly circus at Pride.
And it was very Noisy, horrible acoustics... everyone shouting.
I won’t go back.

We had a good night and the food was delicious, but for a place that encourages you to share the dishes weren’t very shareable. Tiny portions and for a table of four was a little disappointing.

The Service was patchy too sadly - basics being missed, so not encouraged to come back again.

Service and venue are outstanding. Some of the dishes are quite pricey, but it was expected and anyway there is a good choice of dishes with a normal price.
We liked a lot 5 out of the 7 dishes ordered, the biggest disappointment was padron peppers are they came very undercooked. When we sent them back, they returned in the same status and they said that the chef confirmed that that's the the way they are done at Lucky Cat.
The rest was very tasty and even the dessert (Yum baba roasted pineapple with coconut chantilly) was incredible!

Great interior. Good music. Friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant just opened one week before but was operating like it has been open for much longer.

The food was served promptly and flawlessly. The food is asian with many Japanese and Chinese dishes served with Chef Ramsay’s twist.

We were fortunate enough to see and meet Chef Ramsay at the as he was dining there at the same time. It was a great overall dining experience

We arrive at 2140hrs for our 2145 reservation and were promptly seated st the bar for what we were informed would be “5” minutes.some 30 minutes later we were still at the bar and after asking several times were finally seated at 10:30. It was then another 15 minutes before we could order followed by being informed the kitchen would close in 10 minutes leaving us with 7 main dishes seemingly thrown at us at once. Understandably the opening week but sadly lacking in the fully package.

Me and my husband had a lovely dining experience on a Saturday evening! It was buzzing with lots of people, and had a great atmosphere. The music was fun, and not too loud for our experience. The food was incredible, we had the chef’s selection of sashimi and sushi, which was most enjoyable and tasty. The service was impeccable, waiters and waitresses were quick and professional with our order. We will definitely be coming back here again, with friends and for date nights.
