Went for the weekend set menus that is a buffet starter, then a main and a variety of dessert at the end. Depending on the menu you choose, you get a variation in the choices and they all looked good. There is also unlimited drinks including wine. My sister who has been before mentioned that the drink changed when I ate with her so it was nice to see that the menu choices are rotating. I had green tea with passion fruit which was very nice.
The food was excellent, the fish was very fresh and tasty and so were the other starters. The mains were decent, the steak was overdone for my taste, salmon average but the tempura was excellent. The dessert was also very nice except the fruit selection could have been a bit better, there was dragon fruit but they had used the cheaper variety that generally is not as tasty then again if they did then the prices probably has to go up.
Service was great with all the staff very friendly and helpful.

I little more To say. The food is great, service quick and helpful, atmosphere is very good. Maybe just a bit noisy when it's busy.

Maybe it was our expectations which were at fault here. We ate here on a Monday night and it was initially very busy and quite noisy (though it quietened down later). The food was fine but we chose the "seasonal tasting menu" and asked to change a few elements (as I don't eat meat and wanted fish) and most of what we had didn't relate to the printed menu at all. It wasn't the sort of "show case" tasting menu we're accustomed to. All the dishes were perfectly serviceable but lacking in the "wow" factor, apart from the dessert which contained a variety of different dishes and was excellent. We also asked for the matching wines but the message didn't get through until we were well into the meal and the wines seemed to be just "red" or "white", though pleasant enough. I don't think we'll be rushing back here.
