Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On arrival, there was no one to usher. There was hardly any staff. From ordering main course to being served it took 1:15 minutes. We were not informed of the delay and on asking they said, they were short of staff. In the interim had...to order prawn crackers as were famished by then. It took a while for these to be served too. Ordered Tofu curry, they said they had run out of Tofu. On ordering another portion of Jasmine rice, they said , they did not have any more rice. Have never had such a terrible experience where there was no staff, no food !! They did not charge us for ordering 1 extra RotiMore

I had my daughters 21st birthday party here for family and her friends. Such a great venue and a great outdoor space. The staff were brilliant and they went above and beyond to make our party fabulous. The food was lovely also. It is also...a great location and a short walk into the city centre. This was great for my daughter and her friends who went out to continue their celebrations after the party finished.More

It’s not very often I write a review but I thought on this occasion I should as the food was excellent, with great service and atmosphere. It’s not often I can keep all my family members happy as we have a mix of meat eaters,...vegetarians and a vegan! Great job!More

Our visit to Blue Piano last weekend was an absolute pleasure from the beginning to the end. It is a hidden gem that maybe not many people know about. We visited the venue on a friend's recommendation and it didn't disappoint. The service was very...attentive, the bao buns were delicious and the live music was just fantastic. It was a Friday night well spent.More

The Blue Piano was a place we visited frequently when working on Calthorpe Rd, so an old colleague and I thought we’d revisit/reminisce over lunch. It’s definitely lost it’s sparkle, the place is looking very tired. This was a late lunch @ 2.15 and we...were only 2 of 4 diners. Which you think would make the service good. it wasn’t. The lunch set menu is 2 small plates or a small and large, my friend ordered 2 small and I ordered a small with a large to follow. I assumed she’s done the same, so was surprised when she got 2 starters alongside my 1. So basically by the time my main came I was eating alone. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out that her 2 small plates needed staggering. Then to go with our glasses of wine I asked for some table water. 15 minutes later still waiting and had to get up and hunt it down myself no staff to be seen, eventually found someone in the garden. The food is good, very tasty but the place is lacklustre and the service isn’t great. So an average review.More

Hotel stay. No issues with the room itself however reception desk staff incredibly unhelpful. We asked about parking as the hotel only has 2 spaces both of which were full. We were told I think there’s another car park “somewhere” down that road. Or you...can park on the main road after 7pm but move it before 6am. No awareness or ability to help a customer with simple guidance about where to park. Bar closes early (10 ish?) no ability to get any drinks after that even if bar staff are there and other clients still drinking. Won’t be in a hurry to return.More

Our company has used Blue Piano in the past for meetings and dinner and always had a good experience, however our most recent experience of the Blue Piano was very poor and I suspect this is due to them being undrler new management/ownership. The issues...were as follows: + We had booked their private dining room and sent across meal orders however upon arrival were initially told there was no record of the booking. It transpired the manager was confused as to what date it was and had planned the whole evening based in the diary booking for the following week. + The room was significantly more shabby than our last visit- wobbly chairs and a missing blind. There was a provided projector which we managed to set up ourselves however the missing blind meant it was very hard to see. + Food was significantly delayed. We arrived at 6.30 and asked for starters at 7.30 After chasing at 7.45 and 8pm they arrived at 8.10. Main course delay was similar. When it hit 9.15 we cancelled the desserts. + A lot of the staff seemed very new. Although pleasant often didn't seem to understand what was going on. The whole team were very apologetic and gave us a generous discount on our bill, hence 3 stars, but unfortunately the whole scenario was very embarrassing for our company and it is unlikely we will book again.More

My husband and I held our wedding reception at the Blue Piano and could not recommend it higher. Shreeti (one of the owners) and her team helped us create a lovely day that we will never forget. It was such a beautiful choice for a...wedding reception for our group of 60ish guests. We couldn't have asked for a more special wedding day. We booked out several rooms as well to get ready and for our guests to stay and they were spacious, clean and comfortable. Thanks so much to the staff at the Blue Piano!More

Attended with my partner and was served by a staff member by the name of Kyle. He was such a lovely gentleman and was very attentive to myself and my partner.
