    Expensive ‘bottomless’ brunch. @ £38Lovely surroundings, nice but minimal food. Unfortunately it took a while to be served and we were told not able to order more drink until current drink finished it then took up to 10 minutes to get the next drink so over the 2 hours a lot of time was taken serving which seemed deliberately slow. Unlike The libertine where they couldn’t do enough for you.

    This is the fourth time I've been here and it's just the best cocktail restaurant ever. Initial service problems have been overcome, and the food and cocktails are to die for! There's always a new cocktail to try, and they're proper full of alcohol, not mainly juice like some other cocktail bars. The food, described as small plates, is hot and varied, with decent size portions at reasonable prices. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and dog friendly, whilst the staff couldn't be more friendly, efficient and welcoming. I can't wait to visit again, and again.

    So disappointing. Drove from Arundel to here to have cocktails because we have heard so much about them. They had run out of dry ice and their vapour gun was broken so that meant no speciality drinks apart from a cocktail that you can get anywhere. Food was just okay - lots better around. Restaurant was very quiet so not much ambience although the restaurant is very pretty. Servers were chatting together around their 'area' and not much attention was paid to serving the customers that they did have. Overall a disappointing night.

    Wow wow wow!!! Vudu is just a spectacular experience with the lovely staff and the fabulous drinks! The drinks I would recommend are the lychee like that! So good! And The violet Beauregard was a refreshing and fun drink, you get given sweets and a scratch card to see if you win a free shot!! (I wasn’t lucky that time) If you’re even debating going to vudu just do it, you won’t regret it

    There were not enough bar staff out front so we were waiting 4 long stretches between cocktails as they were all behind the bar …. It was Saturday night and they were busy but they need to be quicker taking the orders

    Food is okay at VUDU however the service was very unprofessional, drinks we placed were very slow coming, when they did one was missing, the waitress said they were busy. Still the drink didn’t come l asked the manager and five minutes later it came. We straight away ordered another round as we had a dinner reservation, l appreciate Saturday is busy, however maybe get more staff.

    Amazing delicious food, unique and tasty cocktails and charming service with a smile from the excellent staff. Highly recommend the chilli prawns, pulled pork bao buns and char sui pork. Cocktails were fab, some being served with a little fanfare for those who like to take pics for the ‘gram. Really great venue - highly recommend!

    I had been a couple of months ago and had a fantastic experience with great service however unfortunately this time was a bit different. The staff were very friendly and welcoming however a couple of things got forgotten or were missing and then charged for and so it fell slightly short which was a shame as had bigged it up to my family.

    Vudu is a great addition to Worthing - bringing more of an elevated cocktail bar vibe. Arguably, there are a few tweaks in regard to service and menu that need to be made - eg please rework your Bloody Mary, it’s a watery letdown in comparison to your other cocktails. Food overall ok - would probably come for the drinks rather than the food.

    Its a nice place, but also feel its a lot of show without a great deal of substance. Decor is very nice Service was ok. Polite, but nobody asking about drinks top ups etc. Food was nice. Was perfectly happy but it didnt stand out. My milkshake tasted great but was tepid. Nice place, but decor is better than the reality imo

Cocktails were fabulous and food very tasty indeed. Will be back for the new menu and possibly Brunch too. Great way to spend a birthday.

    First visit and will definitely be back. The cocktails were incredible. Food was delicious, my only criticism was the sautéed potatoes needed to be brought with a dip and the deep fried chicken, was lovely but very dry, so again would benefit with a dip of some kind. We did ask for some and we got a dip straight away, but I think it should be served with it. The decor was stunning, and this place is a huge benefit to the town. Will be spreading the word to my friends it should definitely be on their to do list!

    Crispy potatoes did not have any five spices or any seasoning and the bowl had all the potato dregs and burnt bits at the bottom and not enough in the portion itself. Duck rolls was mince and tasteless. Could not taste any rum in the strawberry daiquiri cocktail. Pork gyoza ended up being chicken gyoza as informed by server, but we still ordered it and when it arrived it was bland and tasteless. Food came out in drips and drabs and I had to ask server for the fishcakes as they just never arrived at our table and when they did, they were burnt, tasteless and way too small a portion, three fishcakes on a bit of lettuce, each the size of a 50p piece but nothing in the fishcake. Karaage chicken was ok, but just pieces of battered chicken on a skewer, nothing special. The servers were very good and very friendly though.

    Amazing food and first class service. The individual flavours of the (many) dishes we had on our table of five were great … every dish was a winner. Also one of the best cocktails menus I’ve come across.
