A great place with totally delicious food. Every single morsel is worth eating. Wine pairing with the tasting menu was an eye opener. I usually steer away from Orange wine, but this one was actually delicious. Also to pair a red wine with fish was adventurous (still prefer white). Impeccable service.

Absolutely incredible food and lovely ambience. Everyone working was so friendly and seemed to be having a great time. Had a delicious orange wine recommended by both the waiter and the sommelier, and had each dish explained to us really well. All the food was so exciting and all the flavours perfectly balanced, given enough space, etc.

Our second time visiting this incredible restaurant. Both times it’s been more of an experience from the second you walk in to the minute you leave.

The food is simply amazing, the staff are attentive and polite and you can tell a lot of love and thought has been put into making it this way for diners.

Head chef Ben Marks alongside sous Chef Adam Wood make a formidable team. The dishes are creative and technical, yet remain un-snobby (which is a recurring theme). High end cuisine with a casual feel to it all. The flavours bamboozling and pleasing the palette all at the same time.

Will 100% be returning when possible. Thank you Perilla, you rock!

Amazing food, every course was excellent and beautifully done. Lovely space and nice staff. Wine pairing was excellent choices but terrible value for money at all, 4 tiny glasses for £40. No good, definitely go but don’t order the wine pairing, just get a bottle- all the wine is delicious!

So many cute touches - the furniture is delightful, they managed to make their covid measures blend in, and the food was really thoughtfully put together. I also really liked the music which seemed like an in-house playlist rather than just Spotify noise.

The food was really good although I noticed something's were missed on our dishes. Such as the bread for the mussels and the sauce for the pork chop. We only realized after we've eaten by looking at other tables. We didn't address the issue as much couldn't of been done. I'm sure this was a one off. I will back to try the a la carte.

Fantastic food. We had seats at the bar. Attentive knowledgeable staff helped us choose a great bottle to go with the set menu. Loved the mushroom tart with the side salad and the whole sea bream. Truly delicious. Thanks.

I was a. It disappointed with this dining experience, if I’m honest. Friendly host but the waitress wasn’t very warm. And the food was experimental to the point of being more curious than tasty. I did like the burnt butter!

Excellent tasting menu, with even better wine pairings! Staff friendly and helpfully explained all the matched wines, which some were new ones we hadn't tried before so was really interesting! The food was incredible, the mezze style first dish was brilliant with unique flavours and the moules soup course was amazing too! We will definitely be back!

A genuinely unique restaurant with lovely staff. The food is always interesting. Sometimes it can be a little too eclectic but there any many flashes of brilliance - this time a truly delicious mushroom tart with a fresh green salad - wonderful.
