We decided off the cuff to try a chinese restaurant as we have only ever tried mizu. Must admit is the best asian tai pan restaurant I have dined at since 2010. Will back again for sure!

I came here with a colleague who knows the manager. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the food was phenomenal, especially the soft shell crab, and the service was fantastic. Considering I never even knew the restaurant existed, it has now gone to the top of my choice for dining out in... More

If you are after fantastic food and service - this is the place to go... The soft shell crab is to die for ... Took a colleague there - She now is going to book Aqua for her birthday meal.

Went with the wife for a meal. Staff were very friendly and welcomed us as soon as we entered. Atmosphere was very nice. Staff very helpful with wine and meal selection and offered a very high quality service. The starters and main meals were fantastic, very well presented and flavoursome. The price of the food reflected the quality, I would... More

I'm not an avid eater of Asian foods, because you tend to find that take-aways and other various places are covered in grease- not here. Aqua8 is wonderful. The food tastes fresh and flavoursome, no slimy dishes. The Thai red curry is absolutely amazing every time I have had it, and your main dish along with your rice will serve... More

We went to Aqua8 for our anniversary meal after hearing such rave reviews from our friends. We reserved out table well in advance and went on a Thursday to avoid the weekend rush. The bar/restaurant is nice and modern. The downstairs bar area was peaceful and cool. Bartender was not very friendly and not sure she knows how to smile.... More

My girlfriend and I really look forward to visiting as a treat. Booking essential. A cocktail downstairs pre-dinner then the easiest thing is to go for the "feed us" option on the menu, where the kitchen brings out its specialities to you. Not the cheapest restaurant in town but surely the best. With food and wine we normally pay £150... More
