The food was great, atmosphere was great but massively let down by such a short allocated time at the table. We didn't amble around but after two courses were told to order desert straight after mains or there wouldn't be time. I asked to speak to the manager who offered nothing but to say we were told how much time we have on our booking email (booked two months in advance). It's not upto us to manage our time at the table. We ordered quickly and ate normally, the time in between courses just added. The response from the manager was not what I expected from a nice restaurant. Paid in full, left unhappy never to return or recommend.

Great service from staff, good recommendations and knowledgeable of the menu. Atmosphere dies down quite quickly after 11pm but perfect if you’ve got an early booking with them.

Came for a pre-concert meal with a friend. It is a good looking restaurant, heavily styled but was quite noisy with conversation probably due to the loud music being played.
The food whilst good was nothing better than what I have had in Asian restaurants costing half the price. Though I have to say the service was excellent-attentive but not overbearing.
In summary you are paying a lot for style rather than quality. I will not be going back

What an experience, I thoroughly enjoyed the venue, it was so beautiful and really set the scene for something special. My friend and I ordered 8 small plates and loved every single of one them. We also ordered a ‘Skull Candy’ cocktail which was smoking when it arrived. The hosts when you entered were so friendly and greeting, our server Teddy knew everything and gave great advice on what’s good. He was very attentive and we felt very special and the entire experience was worth the cost. Would definitely go again!

The food was fabulous as were the cocktails, especially the tuna small plate. And the from China with love. It was great that we weren’t rushed, my only complaint if you can call it that was that my dessert was ‘dry-iced’ at the bar instead of the table so I didn’t get the full effect as the lady on a nearby table did! However this did not spoil anything and I shall certainly recommend to friends and family.

Loved the decor, the waitress was really lovely and so helpful!
I had the lobster and prawn toast, the duck egg a sausage fried rice, the chicken xiao long bao and the spicy pork wontons. All these dishes were small but packed full of flavour. For dessert, I had the cherry blossom which was Devine! Highly recommend this restaurant.

Staff were very welcoming on us entering the restaurant and having us seated.
The waitress we had was an amazing, offering to take us through the menu and was very helpful.
The food was delicious. Had a lot of vegetarian options and the meat options sounded great too!

We had a great meal here on Saturday night, service was second to none always able to help through out the night.


We went for a number of small plates all excellent and served quickly, in particular dim sun was our favourite. Outstanding.

We also had cocktails which were made to order and tasted great.

Great experience throughout the restaurant lively music and beautiful setting with the tree, overall a fantastic night and experience would highly recommend.

To be honest... I was a little disappointed with this visit. We’ve been several times before and raved about it to family and friends.
Our starters came & my husband sent his back due to the short rib being very over cooked, once this was resolved the mains came out when we still had empty starter plates on the table. My steak was luke warm, the rice was crispy on the top indicating it had been sat under a hot lamp, as were the 2 other portions we had between 6 of us. The noodles were also luke warm. We had to ask for dessert menus after sitting with empty mains plates for a while... it all seemed very poor in both service and cooking.
We were told repeatedly that we only had 2 hours on the table yet nobody rushed us away the more we spent on the bar bill. Granted 4 of the party were late arriving due to traffic so I completely understand we took away from our table time in doing this.
I love this restaurant, I always have... but this time has round has made me reluctant to book again which is a shame. I left feeling very unfulfilled and could only aplogise to friends after telling them how great it usually is.
We did however get a gesture of having the service charge knocked off the bill for the short rib incident which was £80, so it gives you a clue as to how much we spent on food and drinks.
Maybe if I go again it would be during the week when more attention to detail is given in all areas.

Ali, our waitress, gave the best service we have ever had. She was top drawer, a good laugh, broke the menus down piece by piece and made each decision so much easier. All the staff were great but Ali took super care of us both. Overall it was one of the best places we have been to and the seats were had were great.

I went for a friend's birthday and under the impression I was going for 2 courses for £22 however when we say down and asked our waitress this option was removed in Dec but I wasn't told on my confirmation phone calls or emails. The £7 option of birthday fortune cookie wasn't worth £7 but they gave it to us for free for inconvenience of menu pricing. Waitress was very nice though.

This was my first visit to Tattu and it certainly won't be the last. I was seriously impressed with the quality of the food (which was all delicious) and it was equally matched by fantastic service.

Tattu offers high class Chinese food that is beautifully presented and full of incredible flavours. The Kung Pao Chicken was my highlight of the meal.

Service was impeccable and friendly. There was a great ambiance in the pretty and authentic themed restaurant.

I felt the meal cost was very fair based on the quality of the food and experience

Took my friend for a big birthday treat. I had been before and wanted to go back, the food was fabulously delicious, cocktails unique. Lovely friendly efficient service from Anastasia. Would have liked to stay longer but we were gently encouraged to vacate as there was an urgency for the table. Will go earlier in the day next time.

Booked this table when the lunch menu was still promoted on the website, when we arrived were told lunch menu was now suspended until January.

This is an obvious move on Tattu to charge premium al a cart prices on the Xmas shopping lunch market....

Whilst the food was nice the above left a bitter taste
