    I was so excited to try Ivy Asia & as I imagined the food was amazing. Such a shame about service and It really did disappoint: -Our starters all came out before our drinks -My cocktail was spilt on me and over the table when pouring from the cocktail shaker onto the candy floss -A dish we didn’t order brought to the table -When clearing our waitress said ‘birthday or anniversary’ in a really blunt and quiet tone and I had to ask her to repeat herself (obviously she was checking if she needed to sort our free dessert) -and finally the bill had 2 of everything we had on!! And I still paid the service charge which now makes me the fool.

    Table was booked for 4pm but it was 4.20pm before our table was ready, there was only 1 stool at the bar so one of us had to stand and wait. When we were seated they hadnt taken notice that we had booked afternoon tea. We had finished all our food before our pots of tea had arrived. I was surprised that we had been charged a service charge for just a table of two.

    Lovely setting and ambience. Friendly service. Food a mixed bag. Some excellent dishes but my only gripe was the duck dish. It wasn’t crispy, the skin was fatty and it was quite cold. And at £19 per person it was overpriced. All other food and cocktails very good and better value.

    Fab food, really good ambience, staff were really friendly. Loved the dancers and the live music. However, the service could have been better. We waited 20 mins for our reserved table and had to ask how long it would be and there was a 20 min gap between food arriving. Overall deffo would go again

    The music is far too loud, it’s like a disco not a restaurant, all my party said the same. I visited your branch in a London and it had the same problem. It’s not what we expect when out to eat at a quality restaurant.

    Food was excellent, as was the waitress service, but the one problem we had was having our mains brought too early - before we had finished our starters. One of our group had her starter brought out at least 5 minutes after the others, which meant that she was only half way through her starter when the main meal was brought to her.

    It was a memorable evening to celebrate our Golden wedding anniversary. The food was superb. One thing that could have improved service was if there was time between corses to relax and get the table cleared . It felt rushed at that stage. We will definitely return.

    The experience at Ivy Asia, from start to finish was exceptional, amazing food and service. A good range of menu items at competitive prices when compared to other restaurants offering this standard of food and service. The service charge is automatically added to the bill, something to be aware of, we were more than happy with that and actually gave an extra tip to reflect what was a memorable night of dining.
