Served us other people food a couple of time. Waiter was rude. Lost part of our order then accused us of eating it and saying we didnt.!?! The waiter was rude and impatient it was like he was doing us a favour to be serving us! A good waiter is barely noticeable this one was making a scene every time he came to our table. I asked what one of the dishes was like he said "normal size beef in a sauce" not very helpful! I have said this before but this chain of restaurants has great food and terrible staff and management!

Staff are so obviously told to push food and drinks. I literally put my beer down and was asked instantly if I wanted another. And I've never heard such a sales pitch for dessert!

Food is expensive and very average. 6 wings are £6, however 4 small slices of aubergine were £7.50!?

Gluten free options were very limited, so don't go if you are allergic!

The only thing anyone enjoyed was the wings. May as well go Wagammama for everything else

The food was as good as previous visits but the stress put on us to eat and be gone was outrageous. We had booked weeks in advance and as soon as we arrived were told we were allowed no more than 1.5 hours maximum at the table (it was only 7.30). They then proceeded to bring the courses to us as quickly as they could and you had literally just put your culturally down and they pounced and took the plates away looking to get us the next course so they could move us on.

It is not cheap and to be treated like a fast food restaurant chain customer was very disappointing.

We were a party of 5 and ordered a wide selection from the menu. Notable mentions were the the Iberico Pork Cheek Skewers, Korean Fried Chicken, Beef Hot Stone Rice and the Iberico Pork Pluma. All dishes we ordered were equisite though! The French toast with matcha soft serve was a great hit at the table too. Even though the restaurant was very busy our waitress was so friendly and helpful!

I was very disappointed on this visit. I have eaten here a number of times and like it; I took some friends. The service was really dreadful. The order was mis-taken; the food arrived out of sequence; everything was impossibly slow; we were not allowed to sit at a larger table because there were only 3 of us - and then they proceeded to fill those tables with parties of 3; no one seemed to know what they were doing. I insisted on the service charge being removed and the manager (who had to authorise this) showed not the slightest interest in the fact that I was so dissatisfied. I will seriously have to consider coming here in the future, which is a pity as the food is nice.

We've eaten many times at both here and the Covent Garden Bone Daddies.

The food was as good as ever, however the service was appalling - we had bottomless drinks and yet repeatedly had to ask for refills to our glasses. Twice the bottle was so empty that we didn't all get our glasses topped up, twice they said 'we'll be right back' and never came back.

At one point I knocked my glass over and they threw some normal napkins on the floor, picked them up and put a trip hazard sign over it, they neither cleaned the floor or the table.

Also - we had the chance to re-order small plates, apart from the moment we'd eaten they took everything away and brought dessert.

The final insult was when we left one of the party realised they'd lost a bank card, we called back and they said they couldn't check because the table was occupied, I asked if I could come back and check and they said sure. Ten minutes later I walked in - the barman at the front directed me to the back where we'd sat and said if you know where it was - please feel free to go and ask them.

I walked back and asked the table, they couldn't have been nicer, I was polite and so I were they, as we're looking I was grabbed by the blonde 'meeter and greeter' from the front of the restaurant 'what are you doing? You can't do that? You can't disturb the table, we've already looked'. I replied that then she should talk to the barman who directed me to do just that, and kept looking.

I have never been treated so rudely in a restaurant, but it explains a lot - her attitude is that the table should not be disturbed, and apparently this extends to topping up drinks and serving them food, since we were unable to get her attention for the whole visit.

We've always enjoyed this chain of restaurants, the food is great and the brunch deal really good on a Sunday, but the level of service badly lets it down - and you can get much, much better service for the same money nearby

We had the bottomless brunch deal and it was spectacular! The food was delicious and high quality and the overall service was great value.
I didn't appreciate being kicked out straight after two hours (the time limit for the brunch) as we still had to finish our drinks. I understand that the next booking was there however the restaurant was not yet full and they could have offered to let us finish our drinks at the bar instead of rushing us out. The ending would have otherwise given this restaurant a 5 star review.

This was a bit of a reunion with my sister, whom I don’t see often. We loved the food but the acoustics are always challenging and I had to be asked to move table because large groups on the bench tables and another at the back just proved too much noise to be able to talk.

Good for value Sunday brunch. Overall food quality was good, some slightly too spicy for my taste. There was a free flow of drinks and small dishes and a choice for one main per person. The waiter mistakenly brought four french toasts instead of two, we were quite full and just thought we would just share, which was good coz they were just amazing 😋 . Would recommend if you have a crave for casual Japanese/Korean dining.

They didn’t serve everything from what we ordered as part of the bottomless Sunday brunch. We are not drinking alcohol and are surprised by the limited alternatives - only tea and soft drinks. Would better to have juices etc.

The food is great and the portion is decent for you to try a bit of everything. Hope the service and ambience can improve. Overall still a good spot for friends and izakaya experience.

Meal before the theatre. Food was amazing, waiter seemed rather deflated but the rest of the staff made up for him. We had the pre-theatre meal which is such great value for money. Will return and try other items on the menu.
