    A fantastic experience - incredibly good food, with each course explained as you received it. A lot of thought has gone into where produce is sourced, how as much of each vegetable as possible can be used, and sustainability

    My first 2 ‘Green’ Michelin star experience. Food was interesting and tasty. Staff was knowledge in explaining each course. Palate cleaning spring was a nice gimmick. Only criticism - U.K. still has the highest Covid-19 deaths in Europe and Covid-19 is still around. We, customers need to feel safe to come to dine. Disappointing, NONE of the staff wear masks and manager asked if we would like them to wear masks at our table. The premise is small - this question should not be asked and should be STANDARD practice. Even IVY, Wood, 20-Storeys….. - all serving staff xx wear masks. Would like to come back BUT not when Covid is still around and serving staff do not wear masks. This is disappointing

    Absolutely sublime plant based food experience from start to finish. After being vegan for 40 years I can honestly say it is the most wonderful food I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy. It was a food taste and texture journey that blew our minds. The care, thought and ingenuity that has been put into the sourcing, preparation, presentation along with absolutely no waste of any by product is fascinating. We could definitely understand why Hypha has been Micheline recommended, a well deserved award for the whole team. We cannot wait to go back for the next season experience!

    Really good food. Excellent inventive plant-based menu. Staff were knowledgeable and attentive. Only negative point was the apple crisp with the dessert which wasn't crisp at all but actually quite chewy and not that nice.

    Most interesting place in Chester. Odd but lovely service. Drinks combo with food was great (ie borderline gross food/drinks but combined were ace). I’ll be back, because I reckon I’d prefer a summer seasonal menu, but who knows. Defo try it but our experience wasn’t amazing. They need better soft drinks. Best salad course I’ve had in years tho.

    Absolutely loved everything about Hypha. The food…. We thought was a work of art. The thought, presentation, flavours, it was just amazing. We opted for the Hard Flight drinks menu and each drink complimented the food perfectly. Had to pass up in the Old Fashioned though as by this time the previous drinks had gone to my head! The staff were knowledgeable about the food and drink being served and were very friendly. Meat was definitely not missed. Will definitely recommend.

    Second time dining at hypha and another enjoyable one. This seasons story was full of rich , beautiful dishes and amazing complex processes to get these amazing results. This is always a treat for us when we come and I know we’ll be planning our next trip for the new year. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, everyone works so hard and they all definitely care about what they do there FOH and BOH. Thankyou for a lovely evening again and we’ll see you soon 🤍

    It is a lovely restaurant and the staff were great. The ethos behind the principle of the menu is also really good as are the ideas. As a vegetarian for over 30 years I had been looking forward to going to Hypha for a while and was expecting amazing flavour combinations and a WOW experience. Although the presentation was nice for me the flavours did not live up to what you would expect from a tasting menu of this type, which was disappointing.

    This was my second visit to Hypha and it has definitely made significant improvements and changes with the new tasting menu. The food is outstanding, tasty and sometimes challenging but very unique. The service is also extremely good, all the dishes arrived very promptly and were well explained. If you are looking for a unique high quality dining experience in Chester, Hypha is your choice, but it is towards the upper end of the price bracket.

    I think the hostess was confused, her description of the every dish was awsome, amazing, excited, lovely but when you try the dish oh my God!!! Everything, apart for 2 courses, was tasteless, ordinary, NOTHING SPECIAL AT ALL. The risotto was like a porridge boiled with water. I never complain again price vs quality but this was ridiculous expensive for nothing. Service good and lovely venue. Michelin star? Really? You have my complete dissatisfaction and please do not even come back and say “thank you for your feedback”, I won’t never come back even my mistake.

    Wonderful welcome from positive and friendly staff. All the staff were knowledgeable and were 100% on board with the ethos of the restaurant. We visited because of the michelin green star that they have been awarded - in the same week going to 2 other restaurants that have also been awarded this incredible achievement. The sustainability aims of the restaurant are clear and explained well to those who may not understand, but personally I am not a fan of the way that the food waste was explained at the table 'We had beetroots left from the previous menu and rather than waste them we turned them into the petit fours' but I do agree with the methods and food waste is a huge issue that can put me off eating in restaurants. The Instagramable dishes really looked lovely, presentation was great but it did feel like style over substance. I stopped eating at the mushroom course but I am not sure that anyone noticed - is this because this happens a lot? Very disappointed that we made the trip - I was looking forward to the soft drinks flights and while impressed that everything was made in the 'lab' next door thought they lacked variety. The speed in which the first dishes came to the table and empty plates cleared actually made me very uncomfortable and we almost left at the soup course. Vegan food can be so good - there are great vegetables, pulses and dairy alternatives available in the UK. I wish the restaurant well, I thought we were quite open minded but maybe this is just not for us?
