I'm a pescaterian, so the fish starters and seabass was spot on and flavoursome. I wanted lobster originally but they ran out of them. My partner had the fillet steak and said it tasted amazing. Overall, a nice place for a casual meet up or date night

Popcorn shrimp was 10/10
Teriyaki chicken skewers were really nice
Monkfish was amazing
Wouldn’t order the rice or noodles again
Chilli Noodles were quite bland
Egg fried rice wasn’t very nice it was mushy and not much taste

Amazing food and nice ambience. Service is very poor. No one informed us of the quick turnaround on tables when we arrived. Having taken 45 mins to take our order we were then rushed through the meal and told we had 10 minutes before they needed the table back on the chance that we wanted desserts, which we did. The option was, inhale a dessert or go somewhere else. Really unimpressive when you are paying over £100 a head for food.

Gorgeous restaurant. Busy, bustling environment. Amazing food.
Mediocre service.
We were a table of 3, for a late business lunch. At the beginning one of my guests had a cocktail spilled on him and all over the table & banquette. It took some overt convincing to be moved to another table while the cleaning took place. Finally a manager realised the ridiculousness of the situation and allowed it to happen. The service through the meal was in order but at the end we were asked if we wanted to order a drink with dessert. We said yes and then were serially ignored until one of my guests stood up and approached the waiter face to face. He then informed us that we needed to give back the table immediately.
We completely appreciated that COVID restrictions probably required the restaurant to impose a table time limit but the way it was managed was shoddy.

The food was genuinely amazing, however the 1.5 hour time slot is nowhere near enough. The food is severed slowly, then straight after you’ve ordered dessert (not even eaten it) you’re asked to leave in 5 minutes. As we were finishing our drinks we were being watched intensely making for an awkward end to a meal. You feel rushed and unwelcome towards the end. We watched our neighbouring two tables also be asked to leave. One of which came after us. Such a shame as the place has the potential to be amazing. It was our 5 year anniversary (mentioned in the booking) not even acknowledgement of this. Very disappointing. In one sentence “A pretentious Wagamama”.

We went on 13th for our anniversary with my 7 month old baby.Everyone was so humble & polite.The doorman Noel if I heard the name right was attentive and good .The downstair desk lady was also very nice sorry missed her name .
Alex was looking after us and he was very attentive and great.
The food was divine ,desert was outstanding cherry parfait with candy floss.
Me & my husband was very pleased and felt wanted.
Definitely coming again &recommending my friends.
The only let down was I asked them to get me a nice place to be seated for my anniversary celebration ,we got the place next to the desk where everyone is coming & going.

The food was absolutely amazing! The flavours were insane - we seriously enjoyed it, along with the great service from members of staff. However we did note on our booking that it was a birthday but we did not receive a cake, and we also saw a couple next to us who receive one. Nevertheless, we thoroughly enjoyed and will be coming again!

Stunning location and the interior is special. However we were held to a 90 minute turnaround which was not good given that we couldn't drink anywhere else and so the whole Xmas experience was tainted. At this price we expected a little more flexibility. Food is excellent - but we were even rushed to order - we took too long on the app so they gave us paper menus to speed us up.

The food was absolutely amazing, however the service was appaling and shameful. I had a reservation booked yet was still made to wait for almost 30 minutes. The waiters if you asked for something would nudge you off or just completely ignore you. This was such a shame as the food was immaculate. Also if you are going in order to be able to get nice photos too don’t get your hopes up. My friend and I were told that because there are people we can’t take photos??? Of course there would be people it is a restaurant. The man speaking to us was especially rude but once again like i said if you are going for the food it is definitely worth it.

Food was outstanding! Highly Recommend the black shell sushi platter. We had the delight of having Alex as our waiter for the evening and he was exceptional. Recommended all different cocktails throughout the evening as well as explaining every dish as it arrived to our table. Will definitely be going back and have already arranged our next evening there.
