    The venue was not open on our arrival after calling numerous times and trying to get into the venue we unfortunately had to find somewhere else on a very busy bank holiday. Despite online and google saying the venue was open for business.

    This is such a cute aesthetic place for a dinner, party, birthday or another celebration or even just an outing. The place itself is such a nice quiet atmosphere with music playing in the background. The staff are so polite and some lovely server served me and my friends and made sure we got the appropriate service we needed. The food itself wasn’t the best, the salmon sushi wasn’t my fav but the steak was 10/10. The mock-tails and mojitos were so nice too, I recommend the mango one.

    We were served by a lovely young lady named Evelyn who was very informative, charismatic and kind. She went above & beyond to explain the menu to us (as we were unfamiliar with japanese cuisine), gave us great recommendations for pictures around the restaurant and displayed great integrity throughout the entire service. Evelyn gave us the best experience with her lovely presence & positive energy. Unfortunately, the food was not great. The beef tartare was underwhelming, mostly because i didnt anticipate it to be ‘slightly cooked’ with a raw look to it. However, the flavours were not doing it for me upon tasting. The burgers were okay at most. The portion size was extremely small in comparison to the price paid. The fries were great but again, charging almost £3 each for a simple spoon of ketchup and mayonnaise is quite outrageous. The desserts were okay. To summarise, nothing we had was impressive except for the price! For this reason, we would not recommend this restaurant to others unless they are looking to take beautiful pictures as the interior is stunning. We thank Evelyn again for the great experience, she has a lovely spirit!⭐️ We gave the overall rating, mostly due to the incredible service, 6/10

    Food was perfect and 5 stars for the young girl who looked after us but 3 stars for the waitresses who were serving the food, they were slightly rude and there was a few mix ups with our order which they weren’t really willing to sort out. The girl who looked after us though was great and sorted it out when they didn’t. We also had to wait a while for cutlery and it was an hour before we managed to order a bottle of wine at which point our starter was finished and we had started our main. Definitely has potential to be an amazing venue, just need to get the staff and organisation a bit better.

    Food was very nice, along with the venue aesthetic, however the undertrained server that was serving us really let the whole night fall flat. She really wasn’t trained or has the right personality to be working in a finer dining environment. Had to constantly repeat things, she relayed back our order completely wrong multiple times, came very close to myself and within my personal space, and looked unbothered and disinterested with us. The server was also rude and walked away rolling her eyes when we paid what was very strange, and both myself and partner were confused by this as there was a 12.5% tip was paid? The lift was out of order, and due to being on crutches, I had to hobble down the stairs - really not good accessibility to the dark venue. We were going to talk to a manager, however we had another reservation to attend so had to leave. Overall, the host staff were really nice, food was nice but expensive for what it actually was. Bad service that ruined our evening as it ended up putting a dampener on the rest of our night. Venue itself is very nice chilled aesthetic but overall I wouldn’t be rushing to go back. I have reached out to iKaro direct, but no response from them directly.

    Avoid like the plague.... Over priced, tiny portions, half empty on a Saturday night and food was just average. I don't understand why restaurants like this pop up when you know they will be gone in a year. 2 of us for a date night we ordered 3 mains (which were smaller than starter plate) and 3 sides. Two cocktails and came to over £130.00. We left as quick as possible and went for desserts at a real restaurant.

    Overpriced weird club vibe at night. Apparently dinner service is not given in the bar and they were helpful to find us a table, but the overall value of food and atmosphere lacked genuine care. It seems it’s another Asian inspired restaurant mimic that’s looking to turn the profit without offering anything unique other than their giant LED display at the entrance.

    Noisy music suited the young trendy people coming in. My starter and main very very good, dessert poor. Partners starter shocking, should have sent it back, bit his main andvdessert v good. Poor menu choice ,not a good selection unless you eat sushi Pricey and then they add 12.5 surcharge , shocking price Service excellent and very attentive So if you're over 40 don't bother, it's a young trendy posers place, expensive but tasty food if you select carefully

    Ikaro, a newcomer on the dining scene, pleasantly surprised with its understated charm. The evening began with thoughtful coat service, followed by a relaxed start with pre-dinner drinks. Transitioning to our table was smooth, with the staff ensuring our menus and drinks seamlessly followed. The team's knowledge of the offerings added a personal touch, and the menu's simplicity belied the exceptional culinary skills at play. The restaurant's design, including surprisingly stylish restrooms, contributed to an atmosphere of subtle sophistication. The friendly and attentive staff created a laid-back and enjoyable dining experience. Ikaro's emerging popularity suggests reservations might become a sought-after privilege. n essence, karo offers a refined culinary journey for those seeking subtle, yet delightful, dining experiences.

    The whole experience was fantastic from the moment we arrived. Although it was mid week and quiet, that suited us, but the service was excellent and the food fantastic. It made it a very special night, although the cost was slightly on the high side, particularly with the drinks, but perfect for a special occasion. We will be back soon.

    A brand new restaurant & a nice contributor to the City. Quiet for a Thursday night but to be fair just finding its feet. Staff very attentive, one waitress in particular very good, great DJ, food nice. Nice to see the old Panacea location open again. Looks a bit too much like a club from the outside if you didn’t know it was a restaurant, nice styling but might put some people off.
