    My husbands food arrived cold. The waitress seemed quite surprised that he wanted the food brought hot!! I had eaten my meal by the time his arrived so we ate separately. The waitress did apologise but no one senior came to do so and we were still charged full price. No real atmosphere in the restaurant, staff didn’t seem bothered about the patrons. Not sure we’ll be back.

    My self and my 15yr old daughter came for dinner. She had seen it on TikTok. We ordered drinks and 2 main meals. The drinks came no problem. My main meal came 40mins later and my daughters meal came 20mins after that. So we didn’t eat together which was the whole point. Very disappointing.

    My 1st order was sent back as it was cold. Got new order and it was amazing. My daughter loved her food aswell. Service was a bit slow as they were short staffed. But couldn't fault the staff as they tried to cope as best they could. Priced reasonably considering its central London. The strawberry lemonade is nice aswell

    I am so pleased with the service and the food. I have celebrated my birthday there with my family. We ate a lot and we did not have space for dessert and l asked for the bill. The waiter made a surprise giving me a piece of cake with candle on top. They sang and dance for me with nice posters saying happy birthday. Was so nice cosy and yummy. Food came for minutes drinks for seconds. Was so fresh and delicious! Was great experience! Definitely going back. Huge thank you to all of them.

    Nachos didn't look like the picture. Wasn't oozy and cheesy like the picture. Waitress smashed a jug of cocktail at the table next to us. 15 mins later the contents including ice, oranges and herbs were still all over the floor smelling of alcohol which was slowly moving wider and wider. Only a wet floor sign put down there was no urgency to clean it up.

    The food was mixed; some dishes were very good and others were disappointing. Expensive for what it was, £200 between 5 people and no alcohol consumed. The service and ambience were good, and that is what saved the experience itself.

    I loved the cheese burger spring rolls. The steak wasn’t the best. The drinks were nice and the desert was good. Waiters were great however the only thing I didn’t like so much was the fact that the restaurant is so open plan it’s like everyone is together, there’s no sense of privacy so I feel it’s more of a restaurant you would go to with friends than a date atmosphere. I also liked the random facts on the TV.

    Fries were cold, dried out like they had been reheated, adult mains were greasy and tasteless, kids chicken strips were fine but spaghetti was awful. Loved it last year when we went so very disappointed and won’t be going again.

    Really enjoyed the food, lovely décor, service is ok. The drinks is reasonable but that is only because it is a bit watered down. It was my second visit, I will definitely go back to try a few more of their dishes.

    The first team member who serves us was lovely although he did spill our sangria on the table while pouring it. The second team member who served us looked miserable and barely interacted with us. 2 of the dishes were partially cold but there was no answer from the buzzer on the table and we were in somewhat of a hurry. Staff from the Angus steakhouse next door we’re leaning on the window next to our table and smoking. Just a bit off putting.
