We went to this restaurant tonight for a special 30th birthday. The evening started off with a long wait to be seated and staff who clearly don't care. I approached the entrance staff to enquire when our table would be available and I was basically told to 'go back to the bar and you will be seated when we are... More

The place was lively and had a great atmosphere but the food was disappointing. There was a lack of main course vegetarian options so I had the noodles with prawns which really I could have... More

Fantastic ambiance in a great location in New York's meat market. The food was excellent and very original with great flavors. If there is one thing that we did not love, it was the fact that dishes are brought out of the kitchen as they are ready, so unless you follow the restaurants's advice to share "family style," you will...
