    The food was good, the cocktails were great, the music is a bit too loud but understandable since the bar is really cosy and plenty of people talking, our seating was not the best, we were sat right next to a wall

    I booked a table for 2 online to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday as a surprise and I sellected the option ocassion (birthday). In addition, I wrote a note to the staff to bring the cake after dinner. Yesterday, was so disappointing, we finished dinner and I was waiting for someone to bring a cake but nothing. Finally when we went to pay at the cashier, there was a girl looked asian wearing lenses. Didn’t get her name but I spoke to her about it and she said I was meant to order the cake!!!! How am I meant to order the cake if it’s meant to be surprise for him and thatwhy you have the option of occasions in your booking!!! Instead of her apologising or passing the feedback to her manager she decided to argue!!!!

    If gold has a taste, it would be the same as the 'Ganesha's Gold' cocktail. My friend from Canada also enjoyed. Thanks for a great experience.

    Great place, food and drinks. Only issue is that the tables are very small and all your dishes and rink cannot fit on, seem ridiculous. Too much focus on presentation of the place which is great but sitting and eating table is poor. If it's busy then you cannot hear each other talk. Tokiet rooms are small and tight too. Beside all that, it's a great little.place.

    The food was reasonably priced and really good. The drinks were amazing but on the higher side of the price. Service was good but they told me the bar closed at 10:30 over the phone but we got kicked out at 10.

    What a brilliant surprise of a place to be in when you don’t know what to expect. From the outside of the building you didn’t know you would find such a hidden gem in the city. The food was amazing and the cocktails were beautiful. Would definitely visit again

    The bar is beautiful and staff amazing, but we were rushed out the door. Giving us. 1 1/2 hour sitting was terrible we barely had time to eat and have our cocktails before we were being told we had 10 mins left to leave. I get it you want to get the most people in, in one night. But at least make it a minimum of 2 hours. We spent $300 and it left a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Beautiful food, cocktails were good but unnecessarily expensive. Short seating time (1.5hrs), tables also smaller than expected, so sharing meals was a little difficult. However, overall a great experience.

    Absolutely loved Saga bar. Drinks are top notch (had myself a mocktail and even it was amazing). I knew Saga bar was famous for its theatrical drinks so I just expected a "so-so" meal, but was pleasantly surprised to find that the food was absolutely delicious as well. I'll be going back.
