Chef Wizzy apparently cut her teeth in some of the world's best restaurants, and it shows – her food is amazing. I popped in for lunch, unable to ignore the buzz any longer about 'that tiny Korean place near the bearpit' and, to my surprise, was treated to crab claw with wild rice with mango and avocado salad! I was pretty smug when I got back to the office and saw my colleagues' sandwich wrappers in the bin, let me tell you! Chef Wizzy is very creative, and prefers an off-the-cuff approach, visiting the fish shop or butcher in the morning, bringing veg from her allotment and creating something truly delicious on the day using fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The same goes for dinner – the menu changes nightly, so there's always an element of surprise. For £12.50 per person you'll get a selection of sharing dishes (solo diners will be treated to smaller versions of the dishes) that might include tuna tartar, mussels, slow-cooked pork or sea bream. My friend and I went midweek and shared a delicious feast of seafood pancake, bulgogi (beef marinated in a light soy sauce with glass noodles), baby turbot and wild rice, plus melt-in-the-mouth fried anchovy, kimchi and Chinese leaves.

Sky Kong Kong is a bit off the beaten track, next to the bus station and just behind Bristol Fashion, but that's one of the things that's so great about it – it's lovely to leave the supermarkets and cafes of Broadmead behind you and escape to this place, with its baskets of star anise, beautiful crockery and mismatched furniture.

I'm already planning to go back next week!
