We have been to Aqua 8 several times over the years for birthdays and special occasions. The food has always been very tasty and the staff are very polite and nice. One of the few places in Ipswich that we keep going to!
We thought it would be expensive but after a wonderful meal the bill was a lot lower which was a nice surprise.
Excellent food in a gorgeous setting. Staff very friendly. Great meal, highly recommend!
I found the food all too sweet and not very fresh, service was good, food came out too fast and I had a voucher which they wouldn’t accept
We had a lovely evening with beautiful food.
The service was excellent. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
Lovely food served by attentive staff.
Nothing was too much or too difficult for them to help us . Sadly couldn’t manage to eat all of our set menu but what we hadn’t eaten was prettily packed up for us to bring home. They also called for a taxi to bring us home
We had a great time, would highly recommend. Very tasty food, especially beef which was melting in the mouth. Yam.
Lovely atmosphere, amazing food and the staff were great. Cocktails also fab. Will be back soon!
Delicious food, brilliant service, consistently good!
We very much enjoy this restaurant - the good fusion food is presented well and tasty, and comes in right-size portions. The ambience is quiet (though the piped music can intrude) and unhurried. The staff are usually great, though occasionally are not as attentive as they could be.
This was my first time dining at aqua 8. Unfortunately I was disappointed. The table for 2 (#9)we were sat at was a glass topped table that was cracked, smashed quite badly and scratched, tired looking. I was also sat with my back to the entire restaurant with nothing to look at besides a pretty old and tatty bamboo blind. The noise level was loud despite my reservation time being 6 pm. We actually found it hard to hear eachother despite being only a couple of feet away from eachother. On the plus side the waiters and food were good.
The service and desire to please is always evident. This was no exception.
Excellent as always
The best thai food I have ever eaten. Staff were very attentive. Will definitely be going back
Excellent from reception, front of house, service and taste.
Very good we all enjoyed the evening good food good service not rushed thank you
We had a fantastic meal out with our parents who were equally impressed with the food and service. We had the chef recommendation where chef chooses all the food which comprised of starters (5 dishes), a intermediate course, a selection of mains (4 dishes) and dessert (3 different types on one plate). Everything was delicious. We also had a wine flight option 2 with our meal which comprised of 5 different glasses of wine. I can highly recommend Aqua Eight for that special occasion.
food as always excellent, service good too nice touches. cocktails very tasty.
Nice service but standard of food deteriorated since our last visit. We chose set menu but were left disappointed. Even the cod dish we normally love left us dissatisfied
Lovely food and atmosphere!
Made an effort for a birthday dinner including table decorations and dessert. Overall had a great time with delicious food :)
Food was amazing! Staff were very polite and attentive. Pork with lemongrass dressing is a must. Can’t wait for another date night! Ok
Lovely meal for group of 9. This is the 2nd time we've booked and the food was lovely again. Was surprised not to be offered desserts or coffee though!
Usually aqua eight is perfect however New Years Eve There was only a set menu, and as one of us is a vegetarian it meant that both of us had to eat vegetarian. This was not advertised on the website
Excellent quality and beautifully present Thai fusion food, might be nice for the set menus to get a refresh sometime soon. When busy the acoustics in the restaurant can be a challenge.
We booked for New year's eve.
Set menus with plenty of options and tastey platters.
Service very attentive without being overbearing. Food brought to the table promptly and nice and hot.
Great atmosphere and friendly staff.
Food was great, service was fantastic, price wasnt over the top either, only slight complaint would be the toilet is downstairs in the bar but that is hardly a problem,will defo be going again for a meal!!!!
Excellent food, excellent service.
Great that there is a wide choice for gluten free
Delicious food and great lunch venue. Would highly recommend.
The food was exceptional and the service great. It was very busy due to the time of year so we made allowances but it was really noisy. We went with friends and could hardly hold a conversation because of the noise. People were obviously on work meals celebrating but they were shouting across the restaurant to others on different tables. It did spoil our first experience unfortunately but I think we would return.
The food, service was fantastic from when we got there to the time we left. Not reflection on any of the visit whatsoever but this is being picky but far to noisy.
Consistently fabulous food especially the Thai Green curry. Can highly recommend the Kraken cocktail
Excellent food and service
Good menu choices
First class service
Aqua Eight never fails to impress, great food and wine list. Keep up the good work.
I really love Aqua 8. The food is amazing. But unfortunately they need to improve a lot. All I can say that I wasn’t happy with the waiters, very clumsy.
Excellent food and service.. Great atmosphere and ambiance
We had another great evening at Aqua 8! The food was excellent as always, however there was a very large, noisy party in the restaurant near us! But there ain’t anything we can do about other guests bookings! We will be back!!
As one has come to expect an excellent meal with flavoursome food and excellent service. However, if it's a quiet meal for two and a chat you want avoid a Saturday. Good to see the restaurant busy but, with that, comes noise. Why do people shout over each other at the dinner table? Will try mid-week next time.
The food and service were excellent. We went for the 'Leave it to the Chef' option and were not disappointed.
Great food, good service as always.
This was my first visit to Aqua Eight and my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food was excellent as was the service. We shall definitely be returning.
