Food here is fresh and full of flavour. Service is excellent and ambiance is top draw. So it should have been an excellent night but there was some disappointments the coke was more water than coke the portion sizes were on the small size and it all was on the expensive side. Would I go again. Yes food was good.... More

Dear Tonti 1uk, Pleased you enjoyed our food at the Restaurant, but am sorry the coke was below standard as well as the syrup coke we can offer cans, so if you dine with us again just ask your food server for a can of coke. Sorry you felt the food portions were small, and expensive, but our menu prices... More

Dear Donna 345, Pleased with had a fab time with us. When we are quiet customers will have much more choice where they sit. We do have a number of customers who when booking ask for a particular table number which we honour, so maybe next time you come and you like where you sit, ask your food server for... More

Three of us dined here before a concert at Victoria Hall. I think it does a disservice to describe itself as a cafe bar. It is a really nice restaurant with a great selection of pan-Asian food to choose from. All three mains and desserts were excellent at £22 a head excluding alcohol. Being guests at the Abbey Lodge meant... More

This was our first time here, we ordered the fish platter which was really gorgeous, some of the best tempura I've ever tasted. The Salmon Teriyaki was very good too. However the chili prawn Malaysian curry was distinctly average and not very flavoursome. The Banana Tempura dessert was also average and the batter was pretty bland. all round a nice... More

From the moment we stepped in the door, we had a brilliant evening at YoYo's. The front of house service was excellent and we had prompt service at the bar while waiting for our table.
