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

I really wanted to love this place... The decor is beautiful, they serve good cocktails and the prices are decent. However the service was so faulty it unfortunately ruined our experience. I actually think the service is usually good and we were unlucky but we had to change tables twice and there was general confusion with everything pertaining to our... More

The bartender was professional, it was nice watching our drinks being made in front of us and when you see the care that goes into the cocktails you definitely feel you’re getting your value for money. The outdoor fire warmed the whole bar- great considering winter is coming. The band that played was great, although if you want to have... More

The Monday Room, is definitely a wee gem. The tapas/Japanese style menu is flavoursome, has variety to suit most tastes and is just plain Yum! On the 5 occasions we have lunched there we have always found the wait staff to be very friendly and helpful . The service is great and the atmosphere relaxing. Not a cheap lunch but... More

Just called in for a drink after dinner. Great atmosphere with an outdoor area with and open fire. The decorations are entertaining and with a university next door the books on shelves as part of the front of the bar was a great touch. Highly recommended

Great service from a young enthusiastic team. Food is excellent, highlight being the buttercorn springrolls and fried chicken. Well worth a visit

I wanted somewhere special to go for my birthday dinner in Christchurch. Japanese style tapas, a cool interior and excellent cocktails and service made it a really special night. We had several tapas dishes, including the crispy fried chicken, the coleslaw, and a few yakatori skewers (lamb and prawns) and cannot fault any of them. Delicious, well cooked and innovative...

What a great place! Totally lived up to the hype. Delicious food with plenty of new taste sensations for tired taste-buds. Great wine list, excellent service. Definitely a place to go.
