I’ve been a couple of times for lunch in the last couple of months on. Saturday and always feel rushed to leave. Maybe bookings should just be at 12pm then people will be gone by 2pm?! Such a shame as food is delicious
Food was incredible, staff were efficient and friendly. Only let down was it was very loud, plus the arrangement of the tables around us wasn't great as it seemed we were crammed in a gap as both my sister and I were bumped, nudged and hit into by neighbouring diners and their chairs/coats/arms etc. More space around each table and reduced music level would've improved our evening massivley.
Had an excellent time again at Aqua Eight, we had the Chefs choice set menu and it was fantastic. Great attention to detail and very good service. I have always had great food and great service at this restaurant whenever I have been here! Well done!
The food is outstanding, the staff attentive, perfect 10 stars all round
Excellent food and service. Will definitely go again. Best soft shell crab I’ve ever had.
Relaxing, fabulous food and service I would recommend the lunch time menu
We ate with Aqua 8 on Saturday evening for my husbands birthday. We all had a wonderful evening
The food and cocktails were delicious and the staff were incredibly helpful
Can’t wait to come again
Wonderful food. Waitresses were difficult to hear clearly at times.
Awesome 👍food and service outstanding !!!
Lovely food. Reasonable cost. Would definitely recommend.
Aqua Eight was a great night out. It was a last minute valentines day meal for us and we were recommended by a friend. The staff were very professional with putting the napkin on our laps and handing us wipes for our hands after the meal. The ambience of the restaurant was very suave but I will say the music wasn't something I expected, I was thinking it'd be more oriental although it wasn't bad. Our Starter was served hot which is how I like it and it was full of flavour and explained well. For my main I had the roast duck with mango and passionfruit. Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan as my food was lukewarm and the duck was really hard and tasteless. My partner on the other hand had the lemongrass chicken I believe which was full of flavour and was warm. We were served our bill when asked and overall it was a god time out. I would return but i'd order something else in the future.
The food was incredible and the staff were friendly the only reason I give 3 star is because that the meal and experience felt a little rushed it only took maximum a couple of minutes for our starter to come out which we thought was a little odd but we we were not complaining as we were hungry but then it was collected very quickly once we finished our starter, it was only then 5-7 minutes later that outlr main course followed which again we felt was very quick again and rushed. I remian to still recommend this restaurant to friends and family as the food and staff are incredible, i just thought on the saturday night i felt rushed.
Amazing food. Lighting a little bright. Overall good experience
Great place to eat and great cocktails everybody must try this place
Food was greasy, staff were rude and plates were filthy. Totally overpriced
This was for my friend a surprise birthday lunch.
The device and ambience of aqua eight was great. Would always recommend. Great place for good. 👍🏽
Nice place and lovely service! The food was super tasty! Will definitely come back
There was a young lady, who was useless, no value to service at all.
We had dinner at Aqua Eight on a Sunday evening before going to the Ipswich Regent. The service was great and the food was the best Chinese I've ever eaten I can't wait to go back. We chose the contemporary set menu I would 100% have that again.
We walked in and the noise of the music nearly deafened us. Upstairs a bunch of rough rowdy uncouth and drunken women screamed and shouted. I could not hear my friend across the table. We walked out. Horrible.
Really happy with the all round experience.. would definitely book there again
Loveliest meal we have had for a very long time,we had the Aqua menu.
The food was exceptional, we had the set menu and it was lovely. The service was functional and we felt there could have been much more attention to detail, explanation of the dishes and passion for service for the type of restaurant.
We would go back for the wonderful cuisine but the service was average.
Food was lovely and great English sparkling wine. Service was a little short by the manager and a few members of staff. The girl who served us was lovely but had clearly not been trained well.
Enjoyed dinner at aqua8 on Wednesday evening-food superb as usual! Never been disappointed with this place!
Good food, good service and pleasant ambiance. Not too busy early evening midweek. Price range £30 per head so good for occasions.
Outstanding as always. We will be back for sure. Thank you
Warm, friendly welcome. Unhurried table service, excellent meal full of varying flavours.
Another marvellous meal, could not fault anything, lovely menu and friendly staff, one of our favourite places for a guaranteed quality meal out
Took my husband here for his birthday. It was a quiet week night. We didn’t know what to chose so we had the chefs choice 4 courses. We didn’t know what to expect but every dish tasted amazing. Plenty of food. The staff were very friendly and not over bearing but left us to enjoy the meal. A very relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend for a special night out.
We have eaten at Aqua8 for many years now. Often for special occasions. It has been our favourite restaurant. We were disappointed this time for a number of reasons. The waiter continually lent over the table rather than serving from the side of the customer - very impolite and lazy. The Aqua8 menu has always been particularly good. We found the quantity light and barely enough, and... we are not 'huge' eaters either. When the food was served with the accompanying dips - these were not explained and we had to ask what each was for. The final disappointment was the absence of desserts - these were always included in the Aqua8 menu and now the price has been increased and the desserts removed! The food that was served was cooked well, however the presentation has changed - no edible baskets for the soft-shelled crab, just pilled in a reuseable basket. We left feeling let down by the whole experience and we will not be rushing back.
We went to Aqua8 for new years eve and we were very impress with the food. Was a very good experience!
Went with a group of 9 for a end of year party. Amazing food, simply amazing. Great service. It doesn't come much better than this, best Asian food I have ever eaten, my recommendations, the crab and iberico pork. Highly recommended
Very impressed the food and staff amazing, the food was so delicious and tasty, couldn’t find fault
As always aqua eight didn’t disappoint, lovely bar, cocktails and the food was delicious.
Lovely food as always
Very much enjoyed, food very good lovely variety
Waiting staff good
We arrived slightly early for our reservation, the service was inviting & prompt throughout the whole evening, noise levels were notably high which was the only disappointment! Otherwise great food! 😊
The food was amazing, served well and in a timely fashion. It would have been full marks but we were overcharged on drinks
Food was great as usual however the general service was quite slow. We booked an early dinner (6:30pm) and it felt like we had been forgotten about between our starter and mains. Drink service was slow as we had to try get the waiters attention. Wouldn’t put me off going back again for a special occasion.
