    The food was sensational, possibly the best Sunday roast I’ve had in decades. The service could not have been better. The music was at a good level that you could have a conversation & the jolly ambience was fantastic. We felt special being there.

    Simply love this place! The food is delicious, really beautifully cooked & presented. I'd love a wider menu selection or a change to the menu though but maybe I've been too often. Atmosphere is fantastic, really lively & buzzing. I recommend it to regularly.

    We were seated upstairs which wasn’t ideal as we couldn’t hear the music being played in the speakers, and th as t was one of the reasons why I came back to this venue. It didn’t detract from my experience though.

    The restaurant had a welcoming vibe from the moment we stepped in, with loud pop music setting the mood. The food was good, and the staff struck the perfect balance of friendliness without being overwhelming. It gets busy at night, and while we initially faced a hurdle with the bouncer requiring a reservation, we quickly solved it by booking online via OpenTable for just 10 minutes later, allowing us to enjoy our meal nonetheless.

    Love this place. Food is great; amazing cocktails; great ambiance (lifted by the DJ driven music). Is very buzzy but not that loud that you can't hear what people are saying.

    We usually try and eat here when we are in London for a show. The atmosphere is excellent but not too intrusive so you can still hold a conversation. The food is well presented and very tasty. Cocktails are excellent if you are in Soho and looking for a reasonably priced restaurant with good food and a lively friendly atmosphere be sure to visit this place. Just make sure you book well in advance as they do get busy.

    The bouncer at the door was intimidating and frankly rather rude. This isn’t a nightclub so patrons shouldn’t be treated like undisciplined kids.
