Cena di fine anno, menu fisso, cibo semplice ma di alta qualità, servizio efficientissimo e rapido nella vista sul tamigi, siamo riusciti a vedere anche i fuochi d’artificio. Cena in terrazza costo tra i più economico trovato a Londra

It was a disappointing visit, the food took a long time to arrive despite it being moderately quiet (30 minutes for the oysters to come and then 15 minutes after that the sushi arrived).

The service was weak and we were engaged with very minimally - no real questions and an lack of enthusiasm. We were neither asked for further drinks or about the acceptability of the food.

The bill was £96, which for the quantity was quite unreasonable (the salmon sashimi was an incredibly small portion and the oysters were particularly small).

It's a nice enough location and the quality of the ingredients was generally high but it feels like there's penny-pinching going on, especially with staffing and training.

We had a great meal, with excellent service in a superb location. I enjoyed the Halloumi Burger, and Salt & Pepper Broccoli, my compliments to the Chef. The restaurant is located on the riverbank only a minutes walk from Vauxhall station, it's tucked away in a the St. George Wharf complex. Highly recommend a visit.

Terrible customer service. We had to get the waiters attention every time we wanted to order food and drink. Was not made aware that there was a certain time to order Shisha by

Poor service, got the order wrong several times, salmon was very over cooked and tough, their wine is very cheap, we tried a few and it was all like paint stripper. For somewhere with a lovely location and well fitted out restaurant like this they should be doing better, otherwise like us they won’t get any return custom. Very disappointing!

Ordered the steak which was not warm and very bland. The sauce with it was tasteless too. Portion size were great but taste of food was not. Mocktail tasted terrible. Food and drinks are not good value for money; I was not expecting this. Atmosphere is amazing and shisha is good too.

Booked a table but no one seemed to know about it . There were plenty of free tables so se got one . Staff was wandering around not paying attention to customers , no music it was silence everywhere. Food took long and shisha was so basic when I asked for premium (they charge you to get a good tobacco flavour instead of the basic ) the guy said it’s only for russian customers!!!!! Like what an answer !!!!!! It wasn’t worth £100 for one shisha 2 cups of tea and 2 starters with one main ( a small slice of salmon )

We arrived to find that it was shut for a private function so no idea why my booking was accepted in the first place. We were offered a table outside instead (booking was for inside) but it was too cold to eat out so we had to go elsewhere.

Lovely location and great food. A bit on Pricy side, so not the kind of place one can go regularly. Food portions - were generally hit and miss. Some were ok size others ( esp Aubergine and desserts) were too small even for one persons. Give that I can buy a whole dutch Aubergine for less than £0.60pence, to pay over £8 for a what would be less then quarter of such aubergine is a folly. As for apple crumble and custard.. really nice -but not more then 3 or 4 mouthfull.
Otherwise, great food.
Sit inside if you are not fan of hooka or Vape smells with your food.

I got to the restaurant for my birthday, staff hardly acknowledged me. I finally got someone’s attention and told her I was ready to order...I was again ignored, so I left and went to a different restaurant. Other people’s food looked nice though.

We came towards the end of the night on what appears to be a very busy day for the restaurant (Saturday). There was a consistent sense of urgency about everything, which is good in some cases. However, the restaurant wasn't busy and we were not in any hurry. We were sat a dirty table, but it was wiped clean quickly. The shisha was perfect. The food and drinks came very quickly. We were given the bill after the shisha was taken because they were closing soon. Again, felt a little hurried to leave.

Good menu options, food and attractive restaurant. However, the music for the first hour or so was fairly loud and obnoxious club like music, which didn't fit the mood of dinner at all and was quite distracting from conversation. But, after that the music changed to something much softer and more appropriate.

Really friendly and attentive staff. The burgers were really good quality and served piping hot. The only detraction was the very loud DJ but for most of the meal she had a break so not too bad. Would eat there again.

Their website states that they close at 12am but they actually close before 11pm.
Our table was book for 9pm.
We ordered our food at 9:10 and receive them at 10:25 and had to wait on cutlery.
They switched off the lights at 10:40 so we practically ate in the dark.

We got the shisha and cocktails straight away when we ordered at 9:10.
They collected their shisha at 10:15. So that was a waste of money.
We tried to get more drinks to pass the time but they said the bar was closed. This was at 10:15 while we were still waiting on our food.
Our waiter was working 3 tables and the others were tidying up and didn’t care to help.
The couple on the table next to us left because they could wait on their food any longer.
My husband is not one to complain so we sat and enjoyed each other’s company and made the most of the night.

I had a reservation for 5 pm and wasn’t seated till half an hour later . The manager was rude and told me I was lucky to get a seat even though I showed him my reservation email . He placed my seat right in the sun when it was blazing hot so I moved the table . He didn’t even assist me to move it . The table was dirty and the member of stuff wasn’t willing to clean it immediately . The stuff were terrible with taking orders on time . They walked around pretending to be busy instead of attending to customers . It took over 10 minutes for that bill to arrive and had the nerves to demand service charge after a terrible service was provided which I rejected.The food and shisha were pretty pricey which was a disappointment and parking was also expensive. I would never visit there again or ever recommend it to anyone . Beyond disappointed with the overall service and experience for a lovely location

The service was absolutely terrible om Saturday evening, first of all they were trying to rush us to take an order and then once that was taken they never came back to the table, never came to ask if we wanted more drinks, took forever to bring th bill and when they eventually did the waitress dissapeared for another 15 mins before bringing the card reader. Ot was not even busy! To top it all off we wanted to smoke shisha ouside but because the service too so long we didn't have enough time as it closed at 10.30!!! I've been here before and definitely won't be returning after the terrible and slow service we received! As I said before it wasn't even busy so there was no excuse!!!

Poor Experience - Were stood for quite some time without anyone seating us. Food was very poorly done, two of us ordered the 'Surf and Turf' which consisted of a poor lobster and an incredibly bland steak. We weren't even asked how we would've liked out steak cooked.

Would not recommend to anyone.

Unfortunately our service wasn't very good but it needs to be said that we had a new starter and she forgot certain drinks and dishes. It's understandable that we all start somewhere.
