“A very tasty lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Had 5 assorted tapas dishes and it was all really hot so good start. The squid and the ribs were particularly good. Service was pleasant and all in all very good. £40 all in. Worth a visit for a quick lunch.

“Great tasting menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Came here for my birthday with 14 of us and we opted for the £35 per head tasting menu, so glad we did it was fantastic, my only complaint would be that there was too much of the same thing for 14 of us, we'd have preferred more variety to try but that said im nit picking

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Mothers day meal ruined. We ordered several dishes and tapas to share, the food was literally dumped on the table, we were not asked if we wished to have extra plates to share our food onto, or anything else with our meals. I had to personally fetch plates and chopsticks. An orange juice we ordered was banged down and the man just rushed off. I had to complain in the end, esp when I had to fetch plates myself. We sat upstairs and it was incredibly hot. Terrible service. And as already stipulated, the chefs will not alter anything as apparently they do not speak English.

“A strange experience won't be forgotten”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The food was nice, as was the atmosphere, but...

We booked weeks in advance for a special occasion and arrived punctually, but the service was so slow we were asked to give up our table before finishing our meal. Bizarre.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Visited here for Mother's Day , food was ok, don't ask to change anything, the chefs don't like it !!!
Staff are very good, but we got kicked of our table as you only get a 2 hour slot, even tho the food took ages to come out between courses, would I go again ? NO
Is it authentic ? NO
