    Whilst the cocktails were great, the food was not worth the price. Ordered the black tiger king prawns, half of which were very mushy to the touch, almost similar consistency to mashed potato. To which the chef stated that was because of the type of prawn, and if they made them again, it would be the same. You don’t have to be a professional chef to know prawns should never be mushy like that (especially for that price). King squid was overcooked and chewy. The rest was underwhelming. Could frankly order better takeaway.

    When we visited the restaurant for our dinner booking it was empty! That was quite strange considering the amazing reviews online. Decor is stunning, modern, great for pictures. Music is very modern too, fits the restaurant well. We chose the taster menu for £39 and OMG! The food was incredible. Full of flavour, lovely presentation. Cocktails are amazing. Toilets so clean! Must visit place

    Would recommend as a one off - Great atmosphere and vibe, with good music, but if you are wanting authentic Vietnamese food there are better places that are also half the price.

    Great food let down by an understaffed team and overbooked tables. We waited 30 minutes after the booked time before being seated to order, and subsequently waited another 45 minutes between courses to find that our mains had not been sent through to the kitchen. The food we did manage to eat was delicious and likewise the cocktails were amazing. After the wait we decided to pay and leave as it had taken 2 hours in total from our allotted booked time for our mains to have been started by the kitchen. Very disappointed in what should have been a lovely valentines evening.

    The food was lovely but service was lacking and that lead to a long wait for both drinks when we first got there, and requests of water to the table and extra table wear. However I wouldn’t say that this reflects all staff but just the waiter we had assigned to our table.

    Delicious food but service was pretty bad unfortunately. Very slow, drinks forgotten multiple times. But in their defence there was a massive party at another table of about 40 people so I think that overwhelmed them.. perhaps they should consider not taking such massive bookings while trying to maintain normal service otherwise? No real apologies and no attempt to try to make things better for us. But the food is actually really really good so I would definitely go again as I think it might have been bad luck.

    I’m sorry to say v disappointed. I love Vietnamese food. I have also been to Vietnam many times so I know this style of cooking well. The food was extremely sweet. I did not like it at all. When I informed the staff they said this is the style of cooking which with respect it is not. V disappointing and don’t waste your money.

    Started our visit with a cocktail in the bar. The drinks where well balanced and showed the bartenders experience. The cocktail bar could have used a wipe down and the it would have been a plus to have the drinks served on a napkin or coaster. We sat at a small table perfect for private conversation for our meal. Service was good, food was delicious and I would definitely go there again.

    Staff were not attentive to our table. Asked for a drinks menu multiple times and Everytime I asked they had facial expressions as if I was bothering them. The drinks only arrived after we got our food.When my food arrived it was very cold and not enjoyable on the other hand my boyfriend’s prawn fried rice was really lovely. The lack of service even tho the restaurant was practically empty astonished me. Waited about 20 mins for the bill to arrive when it came it took another 10 mins to take payment. Not in a rush to go back here!

    The food was very tasty, but was unfortunately let down by poor service at the start of our evening. Upon arriving, we were made to wait 25 minutes until the table was ready and were not offered a drink/ menu until 1 hour in. After notifying a member of staff twice and of our desire to leave, members of staff were soon attentive and the food was provided shortly after we finally managed to order.

    Excellent food was really tasty we shared 5 dishes between 2 and was plenty enough, everything we had we enjoyed. The only thing that let this place down was the service being slow. Given it was New Year’s Eve and busy. However we arrived 15 minutes early and was seated at the bar until our table was ready we sat for the whole 15 minutes without been asked if we would like to order a drink, we was then seated at our table and waited another 20 minutes until a drinks order was taken. Apart from that we really enjoyed and would return.

    We probably went at a quiet time in between Christmas and New Year but the place was so quiet with virtually no one inside which contributed to the lack of atmosphere. However I cannot understand why there were so many great reviews for the food. At best the starters were good but the mains were bland and overpriced. We were a party of 4 and all felt the same about the food. We ate at the Ivy Asia the week before which was similar in price but the quality and taste of the food was so much better. Only good point for me was that the Asahi lager was very reasonably priced!

    The restaurant is inviting to look at and once inside is modern and well set out. The menu is excellent and staff explain the dishes and the favourites as the menus cards are given out. Food is excellent, well seasoned and full of fantastic flavours which we thoroughly enjoyed. We did have to wait a couple of times for the drinks but to be honest that did not take away from the overall experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend

    Food was very salty. Service was poor, it was a Sunday evening with only 7 covers in, was not asked if we'd like another drink, couldn't get the staffs attention (other than getting up and going to the bar 🤷‍♂️) Were not asked if everything was OK when the bill arrived. Should have complained at the time, but couldn't wait to get out All in all, not a pleasant experience, we were expecting more from a restaurant with a 4.7/5 rating. Will not be going back

    The restaurant is lovely and food was great and tasty, however the service was very slow and the restaurant wasn't even busy. The staff themselves were however really friendly and helpful. It's just a shame that they were obviously understaffed. The restaurant was also extremely cold and had electric heaters. It was like the air con was on ice cold. That really didn't create a good ambience.
