This was my first visit and I would certainly go again and have no reservation in recommending this to others. Very tasting and imaginative food, fit for sharing.

Great ambience, attentive friendly staff & chef, all of whom were on hand to enthuse about the food they had on offer. I tried their own beer which I enjoyed very much, it was certainly matched by the wonderful food which proved to be full of flavour & made up for an overall fn and entertaining experience. We would definitely like to go back and take a group of friends with us.

Very impressive experience! I picked this restaurant for the quirky name and great sounding menu. I was extremely impressed by the service. We order a number of sharing plates between 3 of us and the food was all delicious. I don't drink and I was pleased that there was a varied menu of mocktails available. I will definitely visit again.

Though the menu has your mind questioning whether or not it's a good idea to put some ingredients with others, you'll be pleasantly surprised when you take the first bite. A true food experience that most would enjoy, and find it very difficult to stop yourself ordering just... one... more... plate...

Excellent evening. The food is super unusual and packed with flavour. We went crazy and ordered tonnes including 2 deserts each. Yet it was still reasonable. Good attentive service and good recommendations on what to try. Will definitely revisit.

Great ambience but the Lamb dish reccomended for 2 to 3 people was actually an overpriced 1 person main; terribly salty. Watch out for the Chilly hidden in the Muscle shells.. Nearly blew my head off.

Lovely atmosphere and good service. Imaginative sounding dishes but most were ok with one or two being very tasty. Some were just not that flavoursome despite the interesting ingredients and presentation. The dessert was great though - enjoyed the spiced churros especially. The only reason I wouldn’t recommend is that I wasn’t wowed by the dishes for the price. There was nothing wrong but it wasn’t somewhere I’d tell a friend about going to.

10 of us went for dinner on Good Friday. I would describe the food as global tapas with a subtle Indian twist to the dishes. On entering, the first thing you see is the bar and friendly bar staff. As we were a few minutes early we had a drink at the bar. The bar staff are very knowledgeable and made a delicious, bespoke cocktail for me. We were escorted to our table which was by the window. Best table in the house, in my opinion. The waiting staff were very happy and really helpful, offering good advise on how many dishes would be perfect for our group. We had a great time and nice banter with all the staff. The food was delicious, I couldn't fault anything. My favourite was the loin of goat. Others loved the spicy mussels. Thank you for a great night

Fabulous falvours and great mocktails, however not the best place for a date or business meeting. More of friends gathering place. Great service. A bit pricy for the portions served .
Will come back though more to explore on the menu

The team were very attentive and pleasant. The cocktails were fabulous and the food was more than tapas though it was along those lines but better with an explosion of wonderful flavours. I would thoroughly recommend.

Food is decent and different but not amazing. It's definitely a good mix of flavours but nothing stood out enough considering the cost.

The food was amazing and the flavour combinations were fantastic. The only thing that let the experience down was our waiter. He didn't know anything about the menu and made up that beef tartare had peanuts in (as I was allergic to nuts). The chef later confirmed it was not the case! He also took ages to get us our drinks and give us the bill (as a result we didn't have dessert as we waited so long to order it). Overall the chef and the food were outstanding but be prepared to wait!

We enjoyed the White lentil, chorizo & pecorino doughnuts and Deep fried feta from tiny plates, but nothing stood out from small dishes. We liked the tapas style of food. My pisco sour (Trifolium) cocktail was great but my boyfriends (The Brave) was underwhelming. Great buzzy atmosphere. Tables are a little close together which provided the staff with challenges serving us, but overall service was good. Came to about £70 for two of us including food, two alcoholic drinks each and service. Enjoyed our evening but wouldnt return as have enjoyed other meals more.

If you are a foodie you need to go here!! I can not recommend this place enough. The doughnuts were out of this world and we have two helpings of beetroot salad it was so stunning

Would 100% come back again and the staff were extremely attentive and friendly

Tiny portions and an extremely limited menu, not at all what I expected. Basic flavours, nothing special so all in all just hype which will soon disappear. Bad evening and had to go for a proper meal afterwards to save what was left of the date.

Interesting flavours and combinations. Slightly haphazard service (wrong drink brought and wrong desserts, but these were rectified without charge). Good for sharing between friends. About £45 a head with a couple of drinks each, which is ok, given the central location, although portion sizes could be a bit larger. The owner came over and chatted to us which was nice.
