The food was excellent. We had a great night...just a few things;

The service wasn't great. Wrong order (twice), forgotten drinks, incorrect items on the bill.

Was great for dining outside, sadly not enough heater for all tables.
Staff were great and super helpful especially in the knowledge for vegetarian option. Check out their cauliflower wings!

I have booked a table for 2 for a birthday celebration 1 day in advance.
On the day of the dinner i received a call from the hostess telling me that the table is outside, that there are heaters but as outside it is cold we should wear warm clothes.

In the end we were placed on a table with no heater, not even close to one and on the sidewalk on the other side of the restaurant, but worse than that was the attitude.

Very rude both hostess and later the waiter with the name of "KINGA". We were literally ignored and spoken rudely the entire night. We even needed to go looking for them to take the order or bring us the card machine to pay.
This ruined our night and made us never to want to come back again.
The management should definitely take some action on this in relation to their staff's attitude towards customers.

ukiyo bar was a perfect place to go for dinner during these pandemic times, the staff seated us outside near the heaters so that we would not be cold and under parasols so that we would not get wet in the rain. The tables were socially distanced and abided by the guidelines. Overall the food was excellent and the staff were so kind and accommodating.

The food is amazing and I would consider coming back just for food. Service was good . But the place itself isn’t the nicest design wise ,just more of a casual mean after shopping maybe .design very basic and worn down a bit.

Recommend going with a group of people so you can share plenty of the yummy small plates. The cocktail jugs are great value. Staff are great.

Sadly, there was a couple of incidences that made this night really unenjoyable.

1. There was a hair in our appetizer.
2. The wrong appetizer was delivered which we noticed after we had touched the food with our hands however the server delivered it to the next table (after we had held it in our hands).
3. I’m convinced there was no prawn in our California roll.
4. One of our sides was not delivered but was on the check (the server happily removed it from the check).
5. The table beside us were so drunk and so obnoxiously loud. While not the restaurants fault, everyone was staring and I really think they should have told them to keep it down rather than continuing to serve them trays of cocktails.

I have to say the servers were all lovely but sadly the food and ambience let the place down.
