“Fantastic food, make sure you book!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We had to wait a while in a very cramped corridor, but we were seated within about 5 mins of our booking time, so it wasn't so bad. I think they need to lay the tables ready for the next customer when the clear the old stuff away, as most of our wait was because our table wasn't ready (fairly early in the evening too).

The restaurant was really busy, but that did make a nice atmosphere, I'm sure booking is essential so don't turn up and hope to get a table.

Beware huge portions, the satay starter is enough for 2 hungry people. The main course dishes are the same. Next time we go we'll share a starter and share a main with pad thai too. The food tasted great, cooked perfectly, and there was plenty to choose from.

The staff are attentive, and look good in their costumes, though I did have a little chuckle at the random trainers they were wearing that didn't really match at all.

Drinks aren't cheap, but the food prices are ok. There's vouchers on their website you can use as well :-)

I'd be happy to go back asap, great food, well worth a visit!

“Great food, hectic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Booked a table for 2 at 7:30 and on arrival we were faced by a queue of people waiting in a narrow corridor. Initially had that sinking feeling about a long wait, but we were asked if we had booked within 2 mins. Promptly shown to a great table. The place was a buzz with chat adding to a great atmosphere. The menu is varied with Thai and Japanese selections, which is the overall theme of the fusion menu.

Decided on a chicken satay starter each and the waitress asked if we were sure as it was quite a big dish. Mistakenly I thought she was exaggerating and confirmed we wanted two starters. Well the portions that arrived were awesome - I've had smaller mains, as there was loads of chicken and enough satay sauce to sink a ship. One satay between two is enough except for the bigger appetites.

The main dishes were equally large with great flavours and after the starter we had most of it to go. They packed it up as takeaway after a couple minutes and promptly brought the bill.

The waitresses are all dressed in kimonos, which is a nice touch.

Hectic place due to its popularity, so make sure you book or you'll have to join the queue in that entrance corridor.

Great place - give it try.

“Great food, wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

This Asean fusion restaurant serves really fine food. The waitresses were dressed in Komonos but they serve food from across Asia - not just Japan.

The service was very prompt and the food was delicious. Starters cost around 8 pounds and main meals around 15 pounds. Wine is 4 quid a glass.

For starters I had some Sushi - salmon was very fresh. For mains we had flat noodles and seafood and Nasi Gorang. Both tasted yummy.

Other guests had soft shelled crab and whole lobster and the dishes looked and smelt wonderful.
