Sat at a high table, shoulder to shoulder with others and noisy. Not a great option for a business lunch.

The pork dumplings were pretty nice. I ordered 2 portions so much I liked. The fail of the restaurant was not asked about allergens, and I had to ask to be able to guarantee I could eat. I gave the feedback to them at the day as well.

They were rushing us to get us out of our spot so they could seat someone more people. Seemed rather strange considering their pricing and what we were spending. I have had better quality and quantities of sushi at other places. The atmosphere was really cool with the live music. The dessert was a really impressive presentation and taste.

Service was terrible. Very slow and we had to order twice as they had ‘run out of paper’. Not heading back anytime soon

Waited 10mins to be seated. Food was ok, it was better the last time we went. Found a hair in food. Pork broth was ridiculously salty.

I wouldn't recommend it if the friend knows Japanese food and has certain expectations. The food was good but can't compare to real Japanese food or food I tried in other places.

If the friend has never tried japanese food, then i would recommend it

I loved this venue and the meal. My only issue was with the seating. I was far too close to the person next to me. So close we kept knowing hands as we both speak with out hands. The service was lovely, and the food absolutely delicious.

A beautiful building, perfect scenario for an invigorating lunch. The noise however, is awful and even disrupting. The service is impecable and the drinks and food selection (restaurants) of great quality.

Great food, really unusual flavours, especially the seaweed and lamb chops. It's pretty expensive £122 for 2 people with 2 courses and 2 drinks each, but this is the city. The live music coming from the other end of the Ned was fun. We were advised several times they would need the table after our 90 minute booking, and we had about 15 minutes grace on this, but you won't be lingering over coffee here! Definitely worth a a visit.

The Sunday brunch has a good variety and quality of food. Great service too. The only thing I would say is that the lower tables were too close together. So the high sharing long table was the only option. However, we would definitely go again.

Good food and atmosphere in a beautiful building. However, it took a few rounds for the host to seat us somewhere acceptable and after she kept repeating the fact that even if we seat in a different area we will still get only 1.5hr at the table. I didn’t find it welcoming.

Kaia is a favourite spot, the food was delicious as always, the only shame was feeling hurried from the moment we arrived, constantly being pressed to order and being reminded that they are busy (despite lots of spare seats) and that we need to move on quickly, the staff seemed irritated when we ordered things. Hopefully they will improve this for future guests.

Good food and service. A bit pricey for a relatively modest lunch, but that was largely down to the dashing.

The Ned is beautiful and the atmosphere is amazing. The service was good at Kaia but the food was lacklustre. The yam fries were good but everything else was ok (veggie omakase, black cod dumplings, aubergine and the broccoli tempura was terrible)! I would go to the Ned for drinks and try a different restaurant next time.

The lady that served us was very helpful with the menu and describing the dishes as I wasn’t familiar and for recommendations. Ordering just enough and amazing tastes. The black cod and tuna starter were beautiful.
She also was able to answer many of my questions about The Neds history and what it had to offer. We were served and then they were attentive but not overbearing. I know lunchtimes on a week day are super busy but a Saturday evening was quite and the bar was nicely busy and has live music. Great night and experience. Sectioned off areas in a massive banking hall may not be to everyone’s taste but I loved having so much going on under one roof.
