    Lovely food - the squid starter was particularly good. The menu is mostly gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free, which is a bonus. What also struck me about the place was the music - some cracking soulful house and disco tunes, with a few classics thrown in. For me, this created a better atmosphere than a typical restaurant. Someone appears to have put a bit of effort into the playlist, and I appreciate that.

    This is the second time you have had no wine available. This is unacceptable. I prefer a restaurant that can organise itself to have wine available. I have not experienced this anywhere else.

    Our second visit. Love the food and the service. Only qualms are the amount of food per serving. We feel it is minimal, especially in view of the pricing., for instance I had the classic chicken curry and was dismayed at the number of pieces of chicken counting only 5. My fellow guests had king prawn and similarly the number of prawns could be counted on one hand. However there is no compaints about the quality of the food and service which are top drawer.

    Greeted very nicely, seated and swiftly introduced to our server. Drinks arrived promptly. We were asked if there were any allergens to consider. (Yes, I'm gluten intolerant) . Meal came quickly and was beautifully presented. Our server came to us during the meal to see how things were. Love the bill paying electronic device too. We ate at a lunchtime and a quiet part of the restaurant was what was needed and we had.

    Pho was as always fabulous for our visit, It was a vibrant Saturday night with a full house yet as always the staff were great. Food was beautiful and delivered promptly with very little work. The staff work as a well oiled machine while remaining attentive and professional at all times. Well done all round.

    Delicious food but my son's main took ages to arrive and the rest of us had eaten most of our meal before he had started. This wasn't taken off the bill. The staff were friendly enough but there was no flexibility to have a larger portion of one of the kids meals (and pay extra) for someone who didn't like spice, which was frustrating. The atmosphere was quite noisy and the music was a bit too loud for conversation.

    First of all, staff were lovely and really helpful and food was delicious However, waited about 40/45 mins for starters to come out (which were cold) followed by mains which one was incorrect resulted in a very long, hungry and frustrating lunch trip Again, staff were really nice and helpful but we wouldn’t visit again based on the fact it took an hour to recieve our food

    They introduced electronic payment system now, with 15% service charge included automatically. To remove it, you have to "speak to the waiter", who actually leaves immediately after bringing the payment device and the bill. Basically the service charge and it's value is now almost mandatory, which I find unacceptable.
