We came here as non-locals for a meal this weekend. The food was lovely, very tasty and was very much an Asian Fusion type of restaurant. I would definitely recommend it! Staff were very helpful as well.

Lovely food, we were in early pre theatre so quiet, service was great, a little chilly in the restaurant but Covid times no doubt

Food here was amazing!! You get a lot for what you pay for. The service to start with was quite slow as they were busy and we'd been there for about an hour before anyone took our food orders and 45 minutes before we got our drinks. With that being said all the staff who did serve us were absolutely fantastic!! And you could really tell they were doing the best they possibly could with the issues they were delt with. The restaurant itself is very pretty, it feels nice and open but also like you have your own privacy at the same time. The music was great, but did find the music from the club and then the music in the actual restaurant did clash quite a bit. Overall we loved our food and the drinks were great and will defer vista again!!

Cannot fault the food. It was amazing. Prices were very reasonable too.

However, the service is shockingly poor. The staff are really slow and food and drinks took forever to come (in fact the drinks didn’t even come)
They have so many staff members and barely any guests so I am unsure why the service was so slow.
Staff have little knowledge about the menu also, so I didn’t get much help trying to understand what the different dishes were. This usually helps in Asian restaurants

Lovely food if you don’t mind waiting and waiting and waiting some more. We waited half an hour to receive a menu and then a further half hour to order drinks. We waited 1 hour 20 mins to get our starter which was popadoms, we were so hungry we ate them before the chutneys arrived as they were also late. Staff didn’t seem to communicate very well and it was just a bit bizarre. The bill was incorrect so we had to wait to sort that out too. It was a good job the food was tasty or our whole night would have been awful.

Booked table for 6:30 and order not taken for some time - even though we were the only customers! Had no wine list but could order wine by the glass. Restaurant was freezing cold. Food was of a good quality and very well seasoned. We would go back again but only if wine list and heating can be sorted.
