The service received from Mber was fantastic. I had a private business meeting, and Mber were able to accommodate a private room for my guest and I. Our waiter was very friendly and informative too.

5 Stars, would recommend.

I booked MBer for my daughter's 22nd Birthday. The ambience and food excellent. However no attempt to cater to my little request for a birthday surprise was acknowledged at all. While the food was excellent and presented really well and quite quickly I was very disappointed that MBer did not allow a doggy bag for left-overs. You see I went by the suggested 2-3 dishes per person and found at the end that there was too much food. I wanted to take home the untouched Thai green curry x 2 we had on our table and steamed rice. The staff then let me know that they didn't do doggy bags.
It made me feel disappointed and angry that I had paid and wasted really nice food. I would recommend that they inform guests this fact at the beginning so that guests can order a bit more carefully. Or start investing in some form of boxes to ensure less waste.

Second time there on a Friday night, we were well greeted on arrival. They lived up to their high standards and Robert delivered a fine dining service. We left it to him with our cocktail choice and we were not disappointed. Food was a feast to the eyes as well as the tummy, every mouthful was an adventure (if u know your food, then "adventure" is an understatement). We chose a 9-dish sharing paired with an exquisite 2015 white chardonnay from their extensive wine list (wine lovers, take note) and we did not have space for desserts (a good excuse to revisit). Pricewise, excellent value for money for the food choice, presentation, taste, venue, atmosphere(live music) and service. I paid a lot more elsewhere for similar type of pan-asian food. I am however curious about their wine locker. #food2escape

Something a little different in the city. Sharing menus give you the chance to taste a lot of different dishes, all delicious. I am a vegetarian and went with a meat eating friend. Having a sharing vegetarian plate with one meat dish for her worked well. Its great to go to a place where as a vegetarian I actually have choice. I expect to return.

It’s been a while since we’ve ate out and thought wow all dishes were amazing and we eat out very often. The setting is sleek and sophisticated, and the service is attentive. Don’t feel pressured to do any sort of tasting which is the easy thing to do when you don’t know what to order. As this is tapas style you can order 3-4 dishes each person and share and naturally make your own tasting menu at a fraction of the cost. The dishes we tried were each very good in their own way but the pork belly is a must if you like pork bellies. We had 7 courses between 2 people and 2 carafes of sake and beer for around £170 with service which is actually quite reasonable for an outstanding meal. We highly recommend and will be back.

Belated 60th Birthday celebration, staff were fanatic,we had the 9 course taster menu and the 9 course Vegetarian menu between the four of us. The dishes were excellent and could not fault any of the 18 course, the waiter was a delight to be served by. The wine selections are outstanding and reasonably priced. We had the added bonus of a love performer sings. Beautiful evening and will return.

What a find! We had a couple of delicious cocktails before heading into eat. We opted for the 9 course taster menu and we were so pleased we did - the food was outstanding. Each course was excellent and faultless. It was pretty empty, but then again England were playing that night! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Very nice bar and restaurant area, some of the food was outstanding, some was far from from that level. The tuna sashimi was served par frozen, when I queried this I was told this was how sashimi is served 90% of the time. Well this was the first and last time I will ever eat sashimi served that way, utterly flavourless and very unpleasant.
