Not as good as our first visit, dishes weren't as well cooked. Sushi rice wasn't cooked and was hard

We ordered several dishes - all were delicious except for one chicken dish that was not fully cooked. We sent it back and received a replacement (no discount on the bill but at least we got a fresh fully cooked dish as ordered!)
Staff were friendly and attentive.
I’d go again as a treat for my family as they all loved it but must admit, the bill was quite a bit more than we’d normally pay.

The tills were down, so the atmosphere was quite chaotic and perhaps a little unprofessional at points. That said, our food came out promptly and was completely delicious! I'd recommend the Korean fried chicken and waffles to everyone!

Lovely restaurant and great choice. Food was really tasty, although I do feel its overpriced. The aim is to get you to buy more than 1 dish but that proves costly. I would visit again however

The restaurant looks lovely, the food was really tasty, portions were a little on the large side so probably ordered way more than we needed! We were told the food was tapas style so would come out in dribs and drabs but it all came at once so things were going cold by the time we could get to it, so felt a bit rushed. Can totally recommend the dirty fries and the beef rib.
The only thing that let it down really was the service. The staff were all pretty much teenagers (albeit very lovely) who were a bit clueless and disorganised. When ordering a second round of soft drinks only 3 out of 4 arrived and had to chase this up a few times. When only two of us ordered dessert, the ice-cream came first, in a warm bowl, which was melting before my eyes, couldn't hold on for the other pudding to arrive unless I wanted soup. The waffle pudding came a good ten mins later after chasing up. Unless they consider the desserts to be tapas delivery too they could have waited and brought both together. It took a while to be able to pay despite a huddle of waitresses stood chatting at the food counter. Even then they weren't able to work out what 50% of the bill was to be able to split amongst us as the waitress said she didn't have GSCE maths and no payment receipt available. I think maybe in a few months when the service is better established and the whole system is working better would I consider returning. I would recommend the food but be prepared for a bit of a disorganised service.

The food was outstanding. My party ordered pork skewers, duck pancakes and the chicken gyoza’s. We were very impressed with the size of the gin that we ordered.
Only slight negative was the service charge that they automatically put on your bill.
Other than that I couldn’t recommend enough !

The food is good and beautifully presented. There are few vegetable options and so the menu is very meat heavy. The music was truly irritating - nondescript and too loud. The staff try hard to offer good service by rote, but it lacks warmth and welcome. It is a good alternative to other Huntingdon offerings but for us to use it more than once in a blue moon it needs to extend its menu and develop a service “personality”.

Really enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant and the staff are so friendly! Always smiling and always asking if there is anything else they can do.
The chicken gyozas and bao buns are incredible. The viatnemese dirty fries are also so delicious.
The pad thai was quite dry and the kung pao chicken was average.
I think the sides / starters are much better than the mains so I will be trying more of these next time!

Service is very good and quick. ,quality of food very good portion size for most dishes were ok except BAO which we think was over priced for just one on the plate.
A little over priced for food and drink we thought.

Small portions for the price. Food was not piping hot and the sweet n sour chicken was surrounded by its sauce that was just lumps…. Not runny at all.
Elements of the meal for four of us were nice but we just didn’t feel that it was good value for money. We had a Thai guest with us and she was very disappointed in the food. My son who loves chicken satay normally really didn’t like what was serviced to him. We didn’t complain as it is down to personal taste. The staff were lovely and service was quick.

The only problem is the food coming out at the same time, we had rice and noodles out before starters, so rice was getting cold whislt waiting for the curry. Would advise ordering starters and then putting in another order for mains. Food is delicious though.

I’ve worked in restaurants in the past including at management level and I would love to help improve the score here. It’s a small business and they could really do well with some changes.
Worth giving a try for the food.
Disappointing that the automatic door wasn’t working and there was no sign or anything.

Overall the food was good and tasty but the desserts really let it down. You pay £7.00 for a small factory made chocolate pudding that you can buy for 50p in the supermarket.
The food is a little pricy for what you actually get.
I don't think I would go again as you can get food of the same quality at other restaurants at less than half of our £76.00 bill for two.

Food was really good quality, tasty and reasonable value for the amount we got. Service was great during the main meal but tailed off at the end, the restaurant was getting quiet and staff started cleaning the unused parts rather than continuing to service the 3 or 4 remaining tables. Understandable they want to try and get away promptly at the end of the night? Only real criticism though is the table sizes - way too small for a restaurant with a tapas approach. Without a refit not sure what they do (maybe trolley or something to give extra table space, or bring food out in smaller batches?). Overall though good experience and will return

Hi Russell, thank you for your feedback, great that you enjoyed the food and service during your meal, we will take on board your feedback regarding the focus at the end of the night, we want to make sure guests get the best service right up until the end but also want to keep the restaurant extremely clean so we will try to find a better balance! Hope you can come back soon.

Hi S9172o2, most of our dishes are intended for sharing, tapas style, so the prices reflect this. We are sorry you didn't feel the dishes you ordered this time were of adequate size. Hope you can come to try more of the menu in future!
