Another excellent meal in this treasure. The food is nicely balanced and fresh tasting. The staff are excellent. The art deco vibe and wine list are each strong. What more do you want?

The food and service as always are very good. You feel confident that covid precautions are taken seriously. Food is of a very good but a little pricey but that is probably explained by the location. Easy to get to by train and many local roads have parking restricted for an hour or so in the morning so you can drive.

I took my son for a birthday meal and we were really impressed - impeccable service and the food was all really delicious. The squid and ribs starters were particular highlights.
The only criticism is that it was a little pricy, so very much an occasional treat rather than a regular night out.

Lovely place to eat, food could have been more flavourful but I accept that it's a healthy alternative to most Chinese food, quite pricey. Overall good experience but too expensive to make it a regular spot and not quite tasty enough to make it a regular special occasions place.

The food was really good. The ordered a spicy prawn and beef in oyster sauce main plus the aubergine side which was delicious. Everything was super clean and the tables are well spaced out. All staff were wearing face masks and service was really good. We will be coming back and will recommend to friends.

Absolutely the best in its class. No question. A wonderful cross between a beloved haunt for well-heeled locals (which is how we encountered it through friends) and a celebration destination. The staff are amazing. And the food. Oh the food. Do not eat breakfast or Lunch if you’re visiting for dinner!

Went to celebrate kids first day at new school. Food is always good (although some of starters were a bit bland) but i was impressed by their Covid protocols. It made feel safe! Not easy these days to find somewhere you are at ease. Thanks a lot to the management

I wouldn't ordinarily eat here as it's a bit beyond my usual budget so pleased to try via the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. Food was delicious, service friendy and professional, and the atmosphere more vibrant than expected but not intrusive. We sat in the back room which I didn't know was there and is nice and light

Very tasty food, lovely environment, and good sized portions, with charming and service. Our only gripe was the pop music sound track playing that seemed out of keeping with the otherwise sophisticated and up-market experience.

Outstanding food and service. Used the eat out to help out scheme which made the meal great value. It was a quiet Monday lunch time so can't comment on general ambience.

Happily go again and again just for the salt and pepper squid, char siu pork and dragon whisker prawns.
