    Very unimpressed with the lack of decor , poor service and felt rushed all the time unnecessarily. Was my birthday and I really wanted to have a good time. They purely rely on the view , not the quality of their service

    Amazing views and plush surroundings. However we were greeted by ‘Stop, go back and wait there’ as we came out of the lift. As a 5* establishment I would have expected to be greeted by ‘Good evening sir, welcome ……etc. We had booked our table for 1hr 30mins however struggled to get service for our 2nd drink within that time scale. So overall really disappointed especially because this was a special occasion.

    We had the Window Experience which included a guaranteed window seat, a bottle of champagne, an Asian platter for 2 and small dessert. Food was not enough for a full meal if you’re a big eater. For the 2 of us it was just right after eating several small bites all day long.

    Tout était parfait. Un accueil au top. Je souhaitais une table avec vue. Malheureusement quand je suis arrivée toutes les tables étaient prises. J'ai attendu un peu et j'y ai été installée dès qu'une table s'est libérée. Les cocktails sont délicieux et les plats également. Cela a un coût évidemment. Mais avec une vue pareil, cela en vaut la peine je pense. On ne fait pas ce genre d'expérience tous les jours. Je suis ressortie de là des étoiles plein les yeux.

    It was a celebration for the family. When we arrived we were told we had just 90mins to vacate the table, hardly the greatest greeting. The view and the food were both good and the staff friendly but not very attentive. The prices however were ridiculously expensive. I would not recommend to eat here. To get a full meal needs a remortgage.

    From the minute we arrived the staff were at pains to tell us we only had our table for an hour and a half; we already knew that. Then there was the half an hour before reminder to vacate our table. It’s all a bit off putting. The view is great; the cocktails and food were average. The prices are eye watering. It’s worth going once. But I wouldn’t head back.

    Aside from the view (which is pretty amazing), really don’t bother. The food is bland and well below par, particularly for the price. Range of wines to pair what is purporting to be Japanese food is also below par. Staff are good and accommodating. Atmosphere is definitely not what it thinks it is. Hardly fun and funky. Not cool, stayed, wooden. Sorry I’m not going back.

    A lovely experience, friendly staff, tasty food and a fantastic view. Only downside was despite paying extra for the guaranteed window seat our table was cramped in a corner and we had 1 seat and a stool which isn’t exactly comfortable and not what you expect when you’re paying over 200£ per person. Thankfully it wasn’t overbooked and we were able to move place.
