Great food and impeccable service. The lamb shank was delicious and not too big, and the monk fish was crispy on the outside and perfect on the inside.

Possibly the worst dining experience of my entire life of living in London for 40 years. Booked a table for 7:30pm dinner for two to try out this restaurant local to us for the first time. Ordered two starters and two drinks. These items arrived soon after the order and were eaten and drunk by 8pm. Mains were ordered shortly after 8:00pm. At 9:30pm we left the restaurant having not received the mains, no further drinks were offered from 8pm. That’s 2 hours in a restaurant and we were only served two small starters and two drinks, nobody came to check or care about us. Service was shocking. When we decided to walk out at the 2 hour mark, the manager didn’t charge for the starters or the two drinks and frankly I didn’t expect anything less. Needless to say I won’t ever be dining in this pathetic establishment again.

Pleasant and cosy Asiatic ambience. Service friendly and attentive. Food tasty and imaginative, but on the expensive size for the portions and the ingredients.

Flavors were excellent, good decor. Service could have been better but not so bad as to be a deal breaker. Would go back for sure!

Busy for a Tuesday night, very friendly service. Had curry puffs and spicy prawns as starters both of which were great. Main course of lamb shank (under cooked) and blackened cod (tiny portion for £24!) were slightly disappointing.

Really enjoyed the food but felt rice portions were a bit on the small side especially the coconut rice. Black pepper prawns were sensational and really lovely service from the waitress

Had a great first experience a few weeks ago, this time didn't seem to live it up to the first. Food wasn't quite as impressive (although still good) and service although nice and friendly, was on the slow side.

This was one of my son’s birthday celebrations. We all had the taster menu. We go to restaurants a lot so we feel we know what good looks like.

It was simply brilliant. Food, wine, ambiance, service as good as it comes.

Always a treat to eat here. I return regularly as always great flavour and consistency, both difficult to fund in central London. This is my overall favourite place in all of south east London. Very close to southbank.

Once we got over the rather brusque East European (?) waitress at the start (we warmed to each other by the end -I think she was just a bit nervous) we had a top class meal. All the food was excellent, and one each of the starter, main and desert between us were outstanding. Somebody knows what they're doing in the kitchen for sure! Would go back to try some of the other dishes on the menu. Recommended.

Our waiter was incredibly rude and condescending and did not listen to our order. He acted agitated throughout our whole meal. This over shadowed our experience. I didn't particularly enjoy my orders but my peers found theirs tasty.

My wife and I had a great meal here two weeks ago and came back again on a Friday evening. We really like this little restaurant. The food is unpretentious and delicious. We had green mango salad, curry puffs, satay, noodles and green curry. - all excellent. The service is friendly and efficient and the customers were a nice mix of people - there was an enjoyable buzzing atmosphere. I am fussy and I give it 5 stars!

We chose the pre-theatre menu, which was excellent value accompanied by a fantastic Sancerre. Deliciously fresh food with layers of flavour. Only criticism was our table was rather a squash for 5 of us.

Whilst the old RSJ is sadly missed it's great to see new life emerging on the old site. The tasting menu was wonderful, especially the Thai tiger prawn curry and the theatrical presentation of one of the desserts.
Staff very helpful explaining the menu options as sushi menu also available. Will definitely go back for more.

We have been twice this year. The Kama Sushi pop up is superb. Their special combination sushi is outstanding.
The Sticky Mango menu is delicious, with lots of exciting dishes to share. Each with their own unique flavour! We will definitely return and recommend to people who love sushi and Asian food.

Exceptional food and service would highly recommend. Just off the beaten path but excellent find for pre theatre avoiding all the bad overpriced food on the Southbank itself.
The ambiance for lunch was hard to tell as it wasn’t very busy and had bad yoga class music playing...
will definitely go again.
