The ambiance was perfect. Not load so you were able to communicate over the table. The food was excellent and probably the best we have tasted. Well done to the chef. The service was attentive and professional. Fully enjoyed the experience and will return. Thank you.

As a group of four friends we gathered in the small bar for a catch-up in comfy chairs before heading to the back of the house to our seats. Each course was explained and beautifully presented. The duck with pak choi came with spinach nochi which was outstanding. The pace of our meal left plenty of time to chat and... More

A family group went for afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday. We were greeted by the smell of fish as we entered, not a good start-from the lunch service I presume. The sandwiches were spoilt by the use of cottage cheese instead of cream cheese. We returned them and were told by an uninterested waiter they were cream cheese suggesting... More

Definitely worth... More

My husband was given a Groupon 6 course taster voucher for his birthday so we visited last Friday night. Before arriving I already felt the customer service would be somewhat lacking. The voucher states you have to book by phone, I tried to call 6 times over 4 days, I left a voicemail, emailed and tweeted & received no response... More

Lovely evening . Good service. Wonderful menu . Not too cramped so good space. Had a great evening. Big selection of dinner choices. Only slight problem was that they could not produce a negroni .

Went here on 3rd December, food was bland and service was poor. They only had half the white wines they had on the menu so it probably explains why we got a table 2 days before we visited. Also when we asked a couple of questions regarding the menu the waiter either did not know or they made something up..........will... More
