Loved the food, and what a great deal for the tasting menu! Each one was delicious. The restaurant was extremely loud at times which wasn’t ideal, but it was a Thursday night so not entirely unexpected. I look forward to returning soon.

Disappointing, I think the place is hyped up. They forgot to put through a couple of bits of our order, which would have been fine if they’d been upfront and explained the delay. Instead, the delay wasn’t explained when we asked the issue was instead blamed on kitchen staff shortages despite all other tables getting their dishes on time and all in one go. We all got our mains at different times within the space of an hour. Got offered free dishes to make up for it, but really - that doesn’t make up for a lack of basic hosting skills, particularly when we don’t want extra food. The food was okay, aubergine and wings were the stand out. Not massively differentiated from other similar Asian-style London spots though.

Service was fantastic, lots of attention to detail. The staff were very attentive and ensured we had clean plates when most food places only give you one (eg we had teh wings which were very messy so the flavoured didn’t mix the staff switche sour plates without even asking).

Lovely friendly team and the food was exceptional, the desert is such an amazing combo!

Whilst the food was good, the policy for using vouchers was disgusting.
We had £120 and planned on using our balance another time (not wanting cash).
Our spend was £87.25 + service charge.
We were told they could only offer a bottle of wine to make up the difference or we lose it!! To add insult to injury they then charged a service charge on the wine that we didn't want in the first place!!
How can we possibly recommend a restaurant chain that does this?

I was a single diner, if I’d been with someone it might’ve been fine but my experience wasn’t great, food was tasty but when I asked for the tasting menu was told it would be too much for me as meant for two people and then told I was ordering too much food off the main menu... I’m a larger lady so it felt kind of shaming... wouldn’t go back based off the experience which is a shame it was my third visit but the first time on my own.

We had the tasting menu and all 8 courses were delicious, and the tasting menu overall had great portions for value.

However, our dining experience was negatively affected by the rush in service. We were reminded multiple times of the time limit on the table, and courses were served before we were even finished with the previous. Most significantly, we still clearly had a sizeable amount of our last 2 savoury courses left, when dessert was brought without any prior warning. As dessert included soft serve, we had no choice but to rush our way through the remaining food.

The bill was then dropped off without prompting just 10 minutes later. On our way out, there were still seats available at the bar and there was no queue outside.

What was supposed to be a lovely tasting experience was ruined by the rush through the service and left us wanting as we were not able to enjoy each dish.

First off, the food was really delicious but our bill came to £85 which seems really pricey for five tapas sized dishes and a cocktail each. We had to wait 25 minutes after requesting the bill to pay and ended up getting up from our seats to hunt down someone.

I’d recommend for a time when you want delicious food but don’t care so much about the atmosphere.
