“Exotic restaurant with excellent service and attractive price-value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

i visited this restaurant with my family in November. Service was excellent -polite,efficient and in a timely manner. Quality of food in the upper level.
Appetisers were very delicious, same experience was the main courses -particularly the viatnamese wok.
And the price level -being in London this is very competitive. Not the last time i have been there.

“Umami and your Daddy will love this cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Lovely meal, menu was really comprehensive with something on there for everyone. The staff were very obliging and advised us on the spice level of all dishes - they even offered to tone some of the spices down for the children's meals.

Absolutely superb service.

“Decent place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Indeed a decent place for Asian food although I must say the taste bud seems to be on the sweet side. We had the pan fried sea bass, stir fried bakchoy and pandan chicken for our first evening in London. This is in the midst where the kids still suffered from massive jet lag. Lovely cooking but thought the bak Choy need to be younger and pandan chicken need to be cut smaller pieces similar the original ones we see in Thailand.

“Delicious and very flavoursome food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I visited this restaurant a few weeks ago and have to say the depth of flavour of the dishes were sublime. The staff were very attentive and took time to explain the various dishes and also in regards what items were best to share which was great as it was a first visit. I would definately visit this restaurant again and will be telling my friends too as it was a pleasant experience although set in a hotel so not open very late the ambiance of the suroundings made it very relaxing. Thanks once again for a lovely evening!
