    A good experience overall though some dishes such as the beef gyoza were way too salty. Great tempura.

    The black cod was a wonderful dish. American diner style booths were quite comfortable. High ceilings with mirrored walls made the room look spacious. Other than these, I can't find a single praise for this over-priced, pretentious restaurant.

    The food was good as was the service and we were surprised to find that a 40% discount had been applied to the food portion of the bill which made the bill very reasonable indeed. Not sure why this happened…perhaps it was something to do with it being a Sunday night.

    Great quality and interesting food (always consistant), really well informed waiters and spot on service. Tables are a bit on the small side for 4 persons and too close together, however a good relaxed ambiance overall with happy clientel. Good value for money.

    We often go to 8 over 8 on Friday and Sunday nights. The food, service and ambience never disappoint. I wouldn't say it's a special occasion restaurant but it's a fantastic neighbourhood restaurant that we love and come back to again and again. There is always a good mix of families, couples and friends groups when we go. They often do special offers on Sunday nights which are excellent value.

    Dined on 10/9/2014
    Booked to come far to early (6pm), so the restaraunt and bar was completely empty which is a big shame. As the night started to get on, it filled up and the atmosphere got much better, so if booking look to go later in the evening. The food choice was disappointing and quite limiting and the menu itself seemed quite cheap (printed off and folded in half) which leaves a poor impression. The food when it came out it was nice, but would have loved for some more choice around the Sushi and Sashimi options. The staff were friendly and welcoming so could not fault there. I am sure you could have a enjoyable time here but it just fell short for us :(

    Always a lovely and enjoyable dining experience. It's always busy which is a good sign, the food is excellent every visit. The menu offers a lot of variety but I'm guilty of sticking to the food I know I love, not very adventurous, but they never let me down. On our last occasion we went earlier than usual ie 7pm knowing it would be easier to park which is definitely was. The restaurant wasn't full but that quickly changed, giving a vibrant and lively atmosphere. The presence of young children there each visit is a bit odd, not wanting to go to a family restaurant with my husband for dinner, that's why we leave our 8 & 6 year old at home! The service is always very fast, be nice to linger a bit more sometimes. Overall highly recommend.

    We have been coming here for years and it is always consistently good. It works particularly well for 4 plus as you can all taste the full range on offer - most items meant for sharing - interesting blend of Asian fusion - the portion sizes are not large and the sauce with the tuna just didn't work. They also watered our malt whisky but quickly rectified. You will need £60 plus per head. Chose a booth as they are more private.

  • Dismal new management
    QuincyVIP
    Dined on 6/7/2014
    The experience can be characterised as follows. The cocktails, starters and waiters are good. The main courses and wine list lack choice and imagination. The new management treat those who book through Opentable as goldfish, i.e. with no memory. Recently, one morning, we booked a table through Opentable for that evening. Within less than 2 hours, we received an unwelcome telephone call from the restaurant purporting to confirm the booking. This was unnecessary and intrusive: those who book through the internet do so precisely to avoid telephone conversations, otherwise why book through the internet? The point was lost to the managers, who could not have been more disparaging or condescending in their attitude. A place to avoid.

    This has become one of my favourites, great good, beautiful people and good service. The rose petal martini is my must have and it's consistently delicious. I tried the barbecued sea bass this time which was amazingly soft and tasty, lovely green curry and loved the pad Thai as always. Would be good to see a few more gravy based dishes which aren't curries but overall never disappoints and is a firm favourite.

    Once upon a time, the food here was outstanding. Now they are relying on their reputation and the food is very mediocre. The chicken curry tasted as though it was coconut milk with lycee juice thrown in, no curry flavour at all, overly sweet and luke warm when served. The pork belly was tough and dry and everything else was dull and expected without any excitement. Sadly, after all these years, I have no desire to return. I should say the service was efficient and the atmosphere was good. Probably best to stick to cocktails and appetizers at the bar.

    A great Friday night for four. We ordered lots of different small plates which were all excellent especialy the pork belly and the sui mai. Mains were good although i think they should offer a better veg side selection. Coctails went down well and they changed our first (clearly corked) bottle of red with a reasonable amount of grace.

    Having eaten here many times I have to say the last visit was ruined by the service - such a shame as the food is delicious! Miserable girl working in the bar area! A really pleasant meet and greet gentleman but a rather "smart answers" women serving us at the table - bordering rude! Will return as they seem to have a fast turnover of staff - have had more good experiences than bad!

    Went to Eight over Eight through the week with some friends and was really disappointed.. The food here has really slipped and is really over priced for what you are getting. We ordered a number of things off the dim sum menu, all of which were just average.. We also ordered some mains, which also were average. It is just sad as this place used to be amazing but everything seems to have slipped. It is embarrassing when you bring friends to a local place and it disappoints. A real shame..

    Dined on 26/3/2014
    If I'm paying over £40 for two courses and wine I really don't expect the classic 'the food comes as it's ready, so it all comes at different times' line; fine for a quick lunch in wagamama's but not really acceptable here in my opinion. The food was really tasty but I just felt that it was not worth the money. Worst of all was the embarrassing level of up selling going on by the waitress, who hung around the table and tried to make us spend more money at every opportunity. Not sure if they work on commission?! To top all that off, she ran over the table as we were working out the bill and kindly reminded us not to include her £13 service charge! I'd go back for the Sunday 40% off offer, but on a normal evening I'd probably give it a miss.

    Had lunch here for the first time (usually come for dinner), the service was attentive without being intrusive, food excellent, there is a more limited menu at lunchtime but still has the amazingly fresh and delicious duck and watermelon salad. The room is lovely and light so a great place for lunch as well as dinner.

    The food is good in general with only some dishes very good to exceptional. This time the sashimi was the best I've tasted. The cold sake was excellent. We were served by a miserable waitress, who suddenly disappeared leaving us to search for someone else to bring the bill. I have found the service generally good at Eight Over Eight, but at times the waiters/waitresses seem untrained and focused on bringing out food as fast as possible to release the tables giving you a feeling that making dinners happy is not a priority. It is still one of my favourite restaurants because I like ordering lots of different dishes to share. The cold sake was excellent and the chilli salt squid is very tasty.

    I have been to this restaurant several times and always had good, fresh food. This time, however, our main course of Prawn Phad Thai had to be returned as the noodles were either undercooked or overcooked. The dish was replaced but not much better the second time. Our starters of ribs and calamari were excellent.
