    We were shown to our seats but the waitress did not wait until we were seated. Myself and my husband took quite a few minutes to figure out how to release our seats from under the table. There were lots of staff but nobody helped us. The order was taken quickly and our drinks and starters arrived promptly. However, we finished our drinks our waitress went past our table and didn’t take our empty glasses away or offer us another drink for 20-25 minutes. We therefore decided to ask our waitress over for a glass of water. The water never arrived and we had to ask for it again. Our main course took over 30 minutes to arrive. However, our waiter apologised for the delay. The main course was absolutely delicious! We were really looking forward to the desserts. The waiter was taking our plates away and he did ask if we wanted anything. We said maybe some Jasmin tea or something. The waitress was on her way back as the waiter was still clearing, but she came back with the bill! I told her that we hadn’t been shown the dessert menu yet! The waiter also looked at her and said something to her. She came back with the menu and we still fancied some Jasmine tea. It came. But again it was like Piccadilly station. When we had finished our tea the waitress kept ignoring us again and kept walking past us seeing to other tables but not showing any hospitality to us! Several waiters, waitresses and the manager walked passed us. It was if we were invisible. We finally had enough, asked for the bill. We then asked to see the manager and the waiter took the payment for the bill first and then fetched her. She took at least 5 minutes to arrive. We told her that we were from London and we came here because reviews were great! We told her that the food was excellent! She was so unhelpful. She blamed everything on her trainee staff. There was a real communication problem she apologised but her apology did not seem genuine. She just wanted to get rid of us and she did!

    Staff weren’t all very friendly (some were), food didn’t taste as good as I was hoping, the aesthetics felt a bit scattered, and a lot of the cutlery I kept getting was dirty. I highly doubt I’d be back again BUT the beef slices (starter) were VERY nice, I got an extra portion after one bite 🤣

    I’ve dined here before and the experience was amazing so I thought I’d bring my husband for his birthday. A Tuesday night so not too busy. Not a great visit to be fair. The food was good, but the service not so much. Attentive at first but when the bill is placed on your table when you haven’t asked for it or even finished your mains, couldn’t help but feeling like we were being rushed out. No offer to see the dessert menu and no enquiry if we’d enjoyed the food or not (we did) . It put a dampener on the whole thing really.

    The food was amazing, atmosphere not bad at all but it would nice to see the staff a bit more friendly and smiling especially as the gratuity is automatically added to the bill which didn’t notice until I had paid. Would certainly go again saying that.

    Went on Saturday evening and we were glad that we had booked as it was really busy. Staff were friendly and service was excellent! We really enjoyed the food. Plenty of choices. Generous tasty portions. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. Shame we live 3+ hours away as we would like to dine there regularly.

    Arrived 30 minutes early and was still able to get seated which was positive. We were told they wanted the table back at 8pm. It's a very busy restaurant and getting served took time. The food when served as we chose the banquet wasn't really explained to us and on one dish the guy couldn't tell us. It took 20 minutes to get the staff attention for the coffee and ice cram and no choice was offered it was just 2 ice creams and a coffee so I asked if there was a choice the lady went off to ask and returned aware of what's available to share. Overall an OK experience, nothing spectacular and nothing to awful. Best part of the meal was the espresso it was great coffee.
