My experience in Ukiyo was very good, the staff wore masks and were very friendly. I felt very safe and there was a good distance between tables. Our food was lovely and very good sized portions. The Bao buns were so light and tasty, the prawns and gyozas were also delicious. I have been here on a few occasions last year and it never fails to deliver.

Lovely atmosphere and the service when we first arrived was good. However, as it got later there were multiple complaints about how long drinks and food were taking.

Do not buy the cocktail jugs as there is no alcohol in them. Food is amazing, though.

Our table was booked for 8.30 we arrived at 8.40 and were seated. Our order was taken at 8.55 and our food arrived at 10.12 I ordered salmon and my partner ordered beef, when i made the booking i had mentioned that it was my partners bday and could they make a fuss of his desert i ended up bringing in my own sparkler bday candle. Listen I am not going to give a big long winded angry review , the food on the night was just awful and the restaurant was too busy, and the food was cold and undercooked. But how we were treated is what i want to really review. When my partner mentioned to the waiter that the food was awful he called the manager over. My only regret was not getting his name. He couldn't of been more genuinely apologetic . The meal was on the house . He also personally brought out my partners bday desert with the biggest sparkly candle and sang happy birthday - it just made us laugh so so much and well really things happen. I've eaten here lots of times and the food genuinely is the best. I just think it was a one off plus the fact they were extremely busy.
So to the manager (so sorry never got your name) you turned the night around made his bday and were a total legend. Hope you have a super Christmas and hopefully we will be back again soon

Great service from all staff that came to our table! The food and cocktails were fab too, sushi wasn't amazing but it was made up for by the gorgeous dessert.
Will definitely be eating there again and going in for karaoke when it is open!

We were given a glass with lipstick stains on it and nothing was done about it. We told two different waiters about it and they apologised but with the current climate/covid 19 was very disappointing.

Great food but bad service, no checking on our table for drinks etc, could barely get the attention of staff. Drinks were then slow to arrive once eventually ordered. Didnt take food order for at least 30 mins. I booked the table 2 months in advance for 2 people and was put downstairs at a table by the emergency exit/backdoor. Won't be rushing back.

Really good, fresh and good variety. The only small issue was everything came at once which wasn't the waiter's fault at all as he requested a delay but it wasn't a big deal and the service was excellent.

Awful service which took way too long to have food delivered. The restaurant was too busy and definitely wasn’t following Covid guidelines. We didn’t even get an apology. The seat we were in also had a lot of passers by gawking in at the table, felt really awkward at times.
When we arrived the tables weren’t being turned over quicky meaning everyone was waiting regardless of booking time. There was obvious disorganization when it game to table allocation.

We booked Ukiyo restaurant at the start of December and opted for standard seating. However when we arrived we were seated outside in what we were told would be a "heated" outdoor area. There were two heaters in our section to be shared between 6 tables. The one beside us was pointed away from our table, so we were left sitting there freezing. Sitting outside without sufficient heating on a December night is unacceptable.
