We were two people for dinner. One of us chose a la carte, the other had the pre-theater menu. Both pre-theater dishes (king prawns in Thai salad; crispy sea bass fillet) were well seasoned, vibrant, and prettily arranged, although the prawns were slightly overcooked and chewy. The a la carte dishes were average: The spring rolls were crispy, but somewhat lacked in seasoning and the accompanying dipping sauce was too sweet and overwhelmed the other flavours. The monkfish had been battered and fried, but then completely covered in turmeric and coconut sauce (why would you do such a thing?), which rendered the batter soggy. The sauce itself had a pleasant aroma of coconut, but the lack of acid made it slightly monotonous and overly rich.

The front of house manager (owner?) was brusque, but the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Excellent pre-theatre menu and food with prompt and friendly service. Choice of wine by the glass limited to only one of each colour. Restaurant is very clean but quite bland in style. More than made up for by the quality of the food, however. Will gladly return.

Good is excellent, so authentic. Lovely service too. And because our friend had a birthday card that we gave him on the table, a surprise ice-cream with birthday candle was presented to him! Really lovely evening.

The problem may be opentable’s not the restaurant but booking was accepted and confirmed for a restaurant that was closed for holidays. Arrived to find handwritten poster in window. Major communication problem somewhere and significant disincentive to ever go again.

Wonderful! Fantastic food, and service to match. Ambience a little quiet, and music seemed loud, but solely because we booked for 5.30pm on a Saturday evening. The restaurant soon filled with happy diners. So so delicious and can’t wait to go back.

We were made very welcome and seated in a good location within the restaurant. Menu was as expected so not difficult to make a choice. The food was excellent as usual, at reasonable price, and well served by helpful staff.

Food and service was great. The 1 thing that let it down was that they had allowed a large dog in that was damp and was very strong smelling. This was quite off putting.
