Great place and food. Main criticism is that the tables are a bit rammed in and our table for 4 was a real squeeze. Would have been Okay for two!

The food was great--common ingredients brought together to create unexpected flavours. We had the tasting menu and found all but one (the cauliflower) of the dishes delicious. The service was also great.

It is a loud place, though. We could only hold a conversation because we were sitting next to each other.

1st visit to this restaurant on the Kings Road. Food excellent and very reasonable (especially for the Kings Road!). Service could have been a little more attentive but this didn't spoil an very good meal out. We will definitely be going back soon!

The service could have been better. Waiter didn’t come often, my wife asked for an explanation of a plate and waiter just read the menu. Didn’t feel a good vibe from staff

The tuna ceviche was absolutely scrumptious and so was the tapioca marshmello! Everything in general is great, these two particularly stood out for me! Thank you :)

We came here for lunch on my husband’s birthday and had a variety of delicious sharing dishes. The staff were super friendly and the atmosphere really easy and relaxed. I loved the quirky design and colours of the interiors. Would definitely recommend it. If you like desert try the sweet potato cake with yoghurt sauce inspired by crepe brûlée.

Food & cocktails were really really good!
Service was just minimum considering the price & level of the restaurant, nobody asked if we liked our drinks or if we enjoyed our meal, nor even thanked us while we were leaving.

Regarding service, I was expecting more than just someone writing down what we wanted or clearing our plates (which btw took about 20 min after we’ve finished and even put on the side of the table)

Were there for our anniversary. Was seated in front of the toilet where everybody was passing. We didn’t ever get the chance to order, we had to ask for it. Food that supposed to be hot was served cold. Our last dish took more than 30 min to get, was deducted from the bill. Took ages to get the bill. We weren’t served the shot that they offer when requesting the bill. We poorer our own wine.

food is excellent. very particular.
however, tables are tiny, noise level is huge, and at the end of the evening your clothes will stink of food.
outside eating should be a better option.
