Lovely dinner with friends. Reasonably priced, with a pre theatre menu. Service on par with 5* restaurants. Food and drinks arrived quick. Waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Food excellent except way, way too much! Lovely experience.

I was here recently for lunch for a friend's birthday as part of a group of 6. The food was very nice and arrived quickly. The honey peppered chicken is always my favourite and I've started asking for the sauce separately as over the years I have found it has become a bit too runny. Service and atmosphere was very...

A late Friday night-the staff managed to find us a table for a young family. The staff were incredibly attentive and very helpful to ensure everything was perfect for us. Food was delicious, but the staff and service topped everything. Highly recommended!

Arrived at 18.00, restaurant very busy with most tables already filled so it recommended to book. Very extensive menu with very attentive staff who are very knowledgeable regarding the menu. Prices vary a lot but be prepared to spend at least £25.00/person for 3 course's. Food very tasty and would give it another go. Restaurant very close to the centre... More

Pros: Great location, lovely staff, great service, great atmosphere! Cons: with both agreed, the squid starter was too chewy. It's supposed to be chewy, but this was TOO much.

Place was packed but service was fast as usual. Staff are amazing a credit to Eddie Fung. Food is so tasty and great menu to choose from Alex our waiter helped us choose from a wide range of food and made quite a few suggestions also. We were not disappointed. Just make sure you book it's always busy

Our waiter was so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him to switch sauces etc. Definitely recommend this for a... More

We had a lunch here from work. Lovely surroundings and good service. Plenty of choices. I had duck rolls to start with. Starters are quite large and we were able to share easily with a colleague who arrived late. The pancakes went down well too. I had the signature dish for my main course. I also ordered noodles but there... More
