That's go with the good: the service was friendly and warm, the decor was above average. And that's all I can really say about the place. I took my wife there after buying its coupon from GrabOne, and the description left me thinking it's a fusion restaurant of a certain level of class and quality. The expectation I had was... More

Absolutely loved the food here. Japanese tapas. The service is great and a huge selection of beers and wines. Will definitely be back. Very generous servings, prompt service and a brilliant menu. Will definitely be back. Highly recommended.

Everything about The Monday Room is fabulous - the decor, the food and the staff! Called in to enquire about having a function here and the owner and staff could not do enough to help us. Nothing was a problem that they could not overcome. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was yummy and I will most certainly... More

Went for lunch, had a great selection of food Service was attentive, but not over the top. Food came out fast, and as appropriate for tapas style, as it came (ie one by one) rather than all together. Made for a very enjoyable dining experience. Didn't try the wine list - but looked comprehensive. Cool building, with unique look inside... More

The flavours were good but expensive for the size of plates. You need to order a few which adds up the price.

Rustic feel. Doesn't look like a Japanese restaurant but we like it. We ordered soft shell crab, salmon sashimi and green tea yellow fin tuna. We love all of them. Presentation was good.

Some girly friends and I decided on a whim to come here before dinner, lovely cocktails, clean toilets, beautiful interior, extensive drinks list and friendly staff. Just a lovely start to our evening.

Arrived unannounced on a Friday night looking for a drink and maybe a bite to eat. Was welcomed and even though they were pretty full ... its quite small inside ... we were shown a table in the outer covered in area. The other tables closer to outside fire were reserved. Waiter was attentive and tapas style food tasty and... More
