We dined here recently on a Sunday evening and were impressed by the quality of the food and service. Ambince is dark wood tones and red firecracker decorations. Several rooms were booked by Karaoke fans, but fortunately the sound proofing seemed adequate and the main dining room was quiet.

This restaurant got a good write up so we hoped it would live up to that. It was a weekday evening and it was fairly quiet. Like the décor and the firecrackers. The girls in our group were attracted to return by the possibilities of Karaoke! Staff were very slow to get drinks, take order and generally pay attention to what people might want, maybe they wanted to keep us there so the place looked fuller.Food was fine but not in any way exceptional and there seemed to be lack of dipping sauces and seasoning generally. So overall maybe it was just an off night.

Try the spicy chicken skewers they were delicious and any of the hot pots. It's a great little restaurant with a karaoke section- which I believe you have to book a room for, we just dined in the main dining room and it was great.

We have not physically been to the Firecracker restaurant, this is a review about their take away/delivery service.
On Friday night, we gave them a call. The order was taken efficiently and calmly (even though you could hear so much noise in the background...but if it sounds busy, it's a good sign I guess). The estimated delivery time was 30 to 40 mins.
And 35 minutes later, the guy arrived with piping hot food. We ordered: prawn crackers, duck rolls with plum sauce, chicken teriyaki skewers, 2 main of chicken (cashew nuts and shitake mushroom) and some noodles and rice. The food was excellent, and for less than £30 we surely didn't feel robbed as quality and quantity were there.
We will order from the Firecracker again; might even pay them a visit one day!

Went here for a friends birthday in November and decided to celebrate my birthday here. I hired out a karaoke room which has all the latest songs. It held 25 people and the staff were so friendly and patient. The food is excellent and it a beautiful place. recommend this place 100% 5 star
