Absolutely amazing restaurant. When we arrived we weren’t happy with our table but were moved straight away. We didn’t know which sushi to pick and our server was very knowledgable and recommend 3 of them. Would love to come back one evening as I’m sure the vibe would be great 10 out of 10

The restaurant visually is lovely but the food wasn’t that great at all. Also the entertainment only came every half hour/45 minutes. The Mac and cheese was awful. I liked the chips x

Good atmosphere, good entertainment. Average service. Food was below the expected quality. A little on the pricey side for the quality of the food.

We went for our Sunday roast and the food was really disappointing it came in a large yorkshire so had a really soggy consistency throughout. I also got cauliflower cheese extra which was watery and just bad.

I booked this afternoon tea for my birthday after seeing it on Instagram… what a waste of money that was! It didn’t come out presented well it was thrown on a plate and the sandwiches wasn’t finger sandwich it was a full slice of bread with a lump of hard butter in the middle… they wasn’t any scones and the sweets were in cupcake cakes looked ridiculous I ordered English tea and when I went to pour it into my cup a leaf fell out into my cup when I asked it was a mint leaf which must’ve been stuck in the spout of the tea pot and maybe not washed properly… very poor service and food we left it … it really was that bad … think on when booking this place … ruined my birthday experience … 🥲

The best restaurant we went to during our time in Manchester by far. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was also great with the performers.

Booked for an anniversary meal. We were seated and ordered drinks. Our drinks arrived and as we went to order our food we informed them of my nut allergy. The manager came over and informed us that they are unable to cater to customers with a nut allergy. We were unable to eat there. Considering the reputation and prices this is unacceptable.

We did enjoy our meal the food was lovely and quick arrival from ordering the atmosphere was good. Our only complaint was the service overall the place was very busy and so you do expect wait times however I don’t think our waiter ever actually came to check on us during our reservation other than bringing our food. We didn’t feel very ‘valued’ as a customer.

We had a great time food amazing and drinks are fab service was exceptional
only gripe is some stuff the customers do but it can’t be helped this place is an Instagramers paradise but when you’re trying to enjoy ur food and other customers around you are more in grossed in their phones and taking selfie’s then the quality that is around them it’s a bit of a put off yes you are at a beautiful restaurant but enjoy your food and conversation there’s all ways time for selfie in the bath tub later all that aside it was a really good experience and would definitely come again

The food was devine. Would recommend the miso Salmon and the sea bass with the broccolini and truffle Mac & cheese. Dessert was followed with apple crumble cheesecake. The ambience and entertainment created whilst dining was simply perfect.

We had 2 children with us told twice before going but no 2 extra seats provided at the table had to ask to fit a chair but was told can only fit one didnt help that the table we wer given was bang in the middle the man at the bar was just staring at one of kids who was a little upset at times - staff were not very friendly especially as the couple with us had a child who was playing up a little they were giving them looks making them feel uncomfortable however i have been here numerous times and normally we have no issues

Went for my friends birthday for lunch. Only to be told once we ordered drinks the grill wasn't working and we could only have from the brunch menu. Really disappointed she travelled from London. We left after our drink

Decent food, service was a bit slow but the staff were super friendly and welcoming. The drinks were AMAZING! The noise level can get quite high at times but the atmosphere is bustling with energy and full of good vibes.
