The menu was different from what's available online (e.g. on Google Maps) as they had different dishes with much higher prices. The soup starter was absolutely inedible, it was cold but that was not a problem, the problem was that it tasted like shampoo with some random spices thrown in. The chicken mains was OK - nothing special for the price. It would have been polite if the service offered to replace the starter or take it off the final bill but they did not offer.

Great atmosphere and surrounding. Good to be able to get away from the main noise of the bar, but still feel part of the room. Attentive staff and lovely food, although some portions are on the small side - be sure to check with the staff if you are looking for larger plates.

We enjoyed the Taco Tuesdays menu and found all of our chosen options to be light, tasty and fresh. The live music, attentive waiters and unique venue also made our experience very enjoyable.

Beautiful and delicious food - fresh, crisp flavours presented with style. Service is attentive but not obstructive. Be prepared for a lot of background noise - a fun buzz throughout the restaurants of The Ned. Sat at the counter which doesn’t appear comfortable but surprisingly was very much so.

Such a lovely restaurant! Food was delicious, fresh and cooked to perfection. We had a booth along the side and the decor was beautiful. Highlights were definitely the ceviche, cod and açai panna cotta!

Shockingly poor service, had to repeatedly ask for coffee, and my food never came despite multiple separate requests. The staff are charming but useless. It’s quite noisy, but that’s to be expected at breakfast time. It’s a long time since I have been somewhere so incompetent.

Although the food was good, the service was not so good. The waitresses appeared indifferent and uninterested in whether we were having a good time or had everything we wanted. We felt a little rushed while having our starters. and we had to ask for everything.

I have to say this is my second time at MK and I was disappointed with the chicken; it was served lukewarm but dessert was amazing. Even at 5:45pm the noise level was loud which makes it a tad difficult to have a decent conversation without raising voices.

Food was mediocre, have had much better and less than half the price. Would not recommend, stay away. Went for a birthday surprise and even after I noted it was a birthday on the booking there was no acknowledgement of this. Other restaurants of the same standard will always show celebration in one form or another.

We had high hopes for this place but having been, I was disappointed. The service really let down the whole experience and for somewhere like the Ned, it was shocking at how basic courtsey and service was lacking. We had to constantly ask for our glass of wine to be topped up, we were told our table had to be vacated earlier than hour and half allocated and were told this several times rudely, despite us saying we had another hour as we booked for 7 but had arrived 45mins early and asked if we wanted to sit at our table to enjoy drinks rather than at the bar. The food was really interesting and different and tasty but the service ruined it and wouldn't recommend for a nice dinner.

At first they sat us at the communal space when I had made reservations for a table, so that was a disappointment. We waited at the communal space until a table was available for us.
The food was really amazing. We ordered tacos, ceviche, tuna poke, quesadilla and guacamole. We had pancakes for desert and they were really good! Highly recommend the place.

Quick lunch for 2 - hamachi starter ok but not exciting & too small for the price. Tuna ahi/Avo & rice starter really good & generous, ditto the cheeseburger & chicken "brick" mains. Chocolate (& avo) dessert really tasty & filling. Service very attentive. The counter seating is not ideal& stools are not comfy enough. Seems you need to be in a 4 to get a decent banquette.

Amazing food and great service however a little tightly packed. It might be an idea to lose a couple of tables on the long banquettes to give diners a little more space and not feel like they are on top of the diners next to them. You feel very conscious of how much food you are ordering as you are a little restricted on space and don't want to encroach on the diners next to you.
