    My son and I went to The Ivy Asia for a joint birthday lunch yesterday. The food and service were exceptional and to be given a complimentary birthday dish at the end of our lunch was such a lovely surprise. Sadly, the only thing that didn’t meet expectations were the ladies toilet. A previous user and left a dirty napkin on the side of the basin. There was water splashed all over the floor and the tap fitting was broken. Also no hand soap and the toilet paper had run out. This was a minor issue and I still have no hesitation on recommending The Ivy to friends, family and colleagues.

    Wonderful, extremely attentive staff. The atmosphere and overall decor of the restaurant is what really made it. Quite overhyped for what you receive/the prices. Definitely worth going to say you’ve been, but not at all spectacular stuff

    It is ok…lovely food but still ultimately a chain restaurant. Service was annoying felt as if you were being rushed to get the next cover in place and second time we have been. Noted it was our anniversary and nothing acknowledged, it was even on the receipt… Very table dependant on if you get a nice outlook or place in a corner or middle of the floor space… great for larger groups of 4 plus people with the set menu but for two people not that special at all. Will consider going back as part of a larger table but not as a couple.

    The family really enjoyed celebrating my daughters 19th birthday. The food, wine, service, ambiance and general happiness amongst the staff was amazing. The set menu for 4 was excellent and well thought through. We added some extras to make it work for our party of 7. Nothing was too much for the team. Special thanks to our waiter ,Julius, who really did go the extra mile to make our time memorable and a very special experience. Isabella the sommelier was also extremely attentive and helpful with recommendations and service. One of our party had a food allergy and all of the team serving were aware and we felt that they had it covered and that we wouldn't have an issue. Outstanding in all departments.

    I found dinner to be okay. Some of the food was very good, some was so so. My date and I like to sit and enjoy a slow paced meal with drinks, and a bottle of wine or 2. Last night we were actually told that our table was booked and that we should move along a bit faster! I would encourage you to try The Ivy Asia, but perhaps let them know you intend to sit for more than 45 mins!

    Surprisingly the chopsticks were of a poor disposable quality! It cheapened the experience a little. Even fast food Asian restaurants have nicer quality utensils. Given the expense and thought to the decor of the place, this is a huge oversight. Unfortunately the nigiri platter we had were dry and each portion piece was a mean size.

    A double birthday celebration with friends and we chose the taster menu for four. Huge variety and quantity of food, on balance good value at £55 per head. Four star rating for food as the taste of some elements, particularly the sushi, was not always very exciting. Less might have been more, and next time we might swerve the appeal of the taster menu and choose things we know will hit the spot. The fantastic decor is a real sensory feast and unique to the Ivy Asia chain - it lifted the experience further out of the ordinary. Superb service throughout what is a complex meal to serve rounded things off. Highly recommended, but need to book well in advance!

    Didn’t expect it to be so good! Food was amazing, lots of show stoppers, we went for sharing menu for 6, would highly recommend! Nice ambience. Slightly slower service as restaurant got busier but felt we had the right amount of time to take our time and not feel rushed. Table booked for 7pm and left about 11pm so a full evening of great food and company, we all left very happy feeling as though we’d had the full dining experience.

    Really enjoyed our experience with Ivy Asia Guildford. Very friendly, polite and professional personals, the décor laps to create a mood, the menu provides a good variety of food and the serving is just outstanding. The wine menu is good as well. Have nothing to complain about, the evening was just amazing there

    The whole experience was good. The cocktails (first ones we had) were delicious. The food was delicious and how to order was explained well. The only disappointment was the mochi dessert balls as we were offered vanilla, mango and coconut but we were given chocolate and strawberry which if we’d known we would have chosen something else. We weren’t charged for it. We can wait to return

    Really enjoyed, better than expected. Went at lunchtime and soon felt very busy. Our only small issue were told food would come as and whem but it all arrived at the same time so the table wasnt really big enough for that many dishes. We had food before the drinks came had to chase those, but that feels a standard service style for The Ivy's.

    Staff who arranged table for me wasn't honest that saying there were no seats available and air conditioner was not working properly on the upstairs. However, there were many tables were available and air conditioned and much cooler than ground floor. 36◦C outside today and I needed a cool place and got it in the end. The staff who was serving my table had an accident next to my table. The floor was wet and she had a very nasty fall. Being a nurse I automatically sprung up and assisted her middle of my meal. She seemed disoriented and shocked, and looked very much in pain and couldn't get up. Poor staff! She was working so hard. I hope she is alright??? The restaurant floor is heavily decorated with patterns and lights, and there are no ways you could notice of any spillages. It's very pretty floors but watch out.

    We opted for the tasting experience menu for 4. The food was generally good, although one of the party was allergic to avocado which was included in several dishes - no offer was made to substitute any of these for something without avocado. Also, we ordered 3 espresso martinis at the end of the night which were incredibly weak and watery. The serving staff generally seemed very inexperienced and quality of service was patchy. For instance, the white wine was left in an ice bucket some way from the table and we had to help ourselves eventually. Also, we ordered a bottle of red at the start, but had to ask where it was halfway through the meal. Also, I was bumped a.couple of times by a waiter passing by with no apology. The ambiance is great, but I think we will go back to the Ivy Castle View in future where the service has always been far better (as well as the espresso martinis).
