Was good overall. They only have a limited set menu due to the outdoor dining experience but still enjoyable and food was delicious. Will definitely come back again once dine in is permitted

Lovely to go back after over a year!
Reduced menu outside - but everything you’d order is on it.
Food excellent and the margaritas and wine perfect.
Friendly staff and great buzz.

Food was delicious, condensed menus due to COVID but what was there was a good selection of everything you want. At the moment I’d recommend for a two person casual date, not a group celebration meal until it’s all back to normal. Service was fast and efficient.

Service was good. Food was alright, but just alright. For the alternatives available at similar price points in close proximity I would not eat here again as the food elsewhere is much better.

Their reduced menu only offers several items which was disappointing. That being said the food I had was very delicious. Service was very slow but the staff were friendly.

One of my favourite places to go to in London. You have to try the Korean Fried Wings and the Kinako Toast dessert.

Food was delicious, especially the french toast with matcha ice cream. Not the servers fault but it was incredibly windy and there was no cover at all which made the dining experience slightly difficult. Additionally, they were quite busy and only had 2 servers so it felt a little rushed.

The menu was very limited, but the few things we ordered were good.
They didn’t have a drinks menu and the offer was very limited, we wanted wine and they only had a red, which we ordered. It was all right, correct, but the surprise came when they charged us £40 for it.
Our mistake for not asking the price beforehand but you wouldn’t expect that kind of prices in that place, and they should have said something.
That detail left the place down massively.

That was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Those chicken wings were heavenly. Loved the beef bao and squid. I had an overall good time considering the circumstances of being out in the cold!

We got there and the weather was not great, which obviously wasn’t in their control. I had booked the table beforehand and attempted to call many times to find out what the outside area was like. I tried several numbers but no ones answered/they were unavailable.
We arrived, and were seated on the edge of the tent when there were other available tables. It was extremely windy and everything was blowing away. We then asked to be moved. It took a really long time to get the waiter and waitresses attention. We ordered.
The portions are SO SMALL for what you pay.
They left something off our order. When we asked where it was we waited another 20-25mins after finishing our other food to get this one remaining starter dish. Many other people were served before us.
The waitress then saw I was annoyed and sarcastically apologised.
At the end she bought the bill so fast, that was the fasted thing they did the entire time.
Overall really bad experience, me and my friend paid £65 and felt very very underwhelmed by the overpriced food and horrendous service.
To take the biscuit, she even added service on to the bill!
In my opinion they could have at least taken that off as a good will gesture (especially as service is Optional, and they bought us things very late and barely apologised).
But no, it was added it on and expected of us to pay it. Which we did.
I will not be going here again and do not recommend this at all.
Stay away!!

The food here is incredible, even with a smaller menu due to COVID, they still offer delicious food and it’s very filling.
The only problem is that at the moment we can’t dine inside which takes away from the experience but that’s not their fault although some heaters could be placed outside to keep the customers warm.
Would definitely recommend!!

I booked 1 week in advance.
At the message I specify was my girlfriend birthday but they didn't provide anything, zero nether a word to my girlfriend.
The menù then was cut because of the pandemic(understandable) but wasn't update in the app, so I came in and I have found a total different menù. Only small bites to eat. Food was good, but very slow service and the waitress forgot also an order, after the reminder she send my order later after 30min...
Could be definitely better...
Thanks anyway for taking my reservation.

Dined in the street outside the restaurant due to covid restrictions but the smell of the busy soho sewer was a little off putting. However, they moved our table further away from the drain which was great and the food was incredible! dessert is to die for and the staff were very attentive. My first dinner out out of lockdown was fantastic.
