I'm pretty fussy about my food. We were looking for a Thai restaurant and only came in here because it was raining! We are SO glad we did. Absolutely superb tapas. Great service. Quick, lovely contemporary decor and fabulous food. We'll be back.

Myself and 8 friends recently had the bottomless brunch one Sunday afternoon. The food was amazing and we got to try many things on the menu. The waiter was great and kept replacing the bottles of Prosecco and we stayed for hours!
