We had the pleasure of enjoying your bottomless bubbles and delicious lunch menu. True to title, we remained with fulls glasses for the full duration of our booking.  Staff were extremely attentive and really looked after us. Especially John, he kept us entertained, with constant...top ups. The edmame  beans were very tasty with the chilli and salt. But the chicken bao bun was the highlight of the meal. A great spot for a celebration if you fancy being spoilt. Huge thanks to the whole team. We look forward to dining with you again soon. More

Don’t think you can have all you can eat. You will need to order dishes off the menu for dinner
