“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

I loved the food there. Much better than the usual "tapas", it's really great food, with a lot of different tastes. A real pleasure.

“Taps with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Much better than the masses of average places. There is a hint of fusion here. Subtle Indian and Chinese influences appear and work very well with the local ingredients. Good wine selection and a pleasant waiter who made good recommendations. Sat outside on the night and enjoyed the streetlife. Will certainly try again.

“Smashing place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We were the first ones in fo lunch, very early by Spanish standards arriving at 1pm and sat at the bar. We had the barman's undivided attention for about an hour. He was incredibly friendly, making food and wine recommendations and ensuring that we had a great time. The wine recommendations (by the glass) were very good, and the cava sangria was the best I tasted on the entire trip.

We tried the strawberry gazpacho, argentinian fillet, foie gras with orange sponge cake (amazing), prawns in phylo pastry and veg wontons. Enough food for 2 people, all of it very tasty. It was the first tapas bar we did in Seville and showed us straight away why Seville is so famous for its great tapas.

Really great food, wine and service, in short...perfect.

If you have the time and are in the area, this is a great place to stay and visit with the locals. Service was excellent and not a long wait.

“Amazing Place for Modern, Progressive Tapas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Popped by this place on a sunday night when the restaurant was starting to close. We were the only ones left and the bartenders were nice enough us to let us in! We simply asked them to recommend several tapas for us as we wanted to get a taste of what the restaurant has to offer. I was impressed that the bartender not only recommended us the specialities of the restaurant, but that he didn't simply recommend us the most expensive items on the menu! Furthermore, when asked for a drink recommendation, he didn't go for something pretentious like recommending expensive wine, but simply told us honestly that since we were trying a diverse range of tapas, the best accompanying drink would be a glass of draught beer - affordable and good.

The food was great! The asian influence is apparent and every tapa was well thought through and presented. With an average of 3 euro a tapas, though it is slightly above usual prices, it is well worth the money given the innovation and extra effort put in.

I'd always remember this quote from the bartender when we were taking photos of the food : ' if only the camera could capture the taste of the food.'

Enough said - when the service staff are completely confident in their food, you know you are on to something good...
