A really good restaurant, really liked the atmosphere and ambience of this place. The food was good, I ordered a half pile of chicken which was tender, moist and juicy, Mac n cheese and skinny fries. My boyfriend had the burger which had a shot of espresso in the sauce - we both found this strange to taste and did not like this. The service was adequate, it was fairly quiet but service was prompt. Slightly overpriced but overall a good experience.

Our chicken was raw TWICE. And I mean properly raw, not just a bit pink. The service was exceptional and waitress did her best to rectify the situation. She kindly took the chicken off our bill. However, there were three of us, and after the chicken was removed from our bill, we had two drinks each, a starter of gyoza, sides of cauliflower and mac n cheese and the bill was still over £90... it’s seems a lot for 2 drinks and a couple of sides when the restaurant’s ‘specialty’ dish wasn’t even done to minimum food hygiene standards...

The only thin I didn't care for was that the server asked if we wanted water, we said yes.... not realizing he was adding bottled water to our bill...when the restaurant serves tap water for free

Service: food and drink took a while to reach us but the stuff was very polite and very professional we liked them enough to be patient.

Food: was nice needed some pepper on the mac and cheese but overall it was good. Wasn't keen on the taste of the Key Lime Pie cocktail but it looked awesome.

Music was loud but thank goodness the Dj was blasting some good music.

Will be going back for sure!

Thanks again!
