Relaxed atmosphere, great shoice of dishes, and advice from the staff on what to choose. We had 6 tapas between 2 which was perfect. Service good. Midweek it was fairly quiet. The special menu had 3 tapas for £11 and they were good sized portions for tapas..
A lovely place to eat good quality far eastern food.

Recently changed its name to electric east, not for the better. I ordered a beef dish which was not edible. I had 2 mouthfuls which I had to spit out as the beef was so tuff and stringy. The noodles were awful. I sent it back and had the chicken instead which was ok. This place has gone seriously downhill.

Fun, and quirky twist on 'asian' Great food. Can walk in mid-week, but might need to book ahead on weekends.

This restaurant is handy for the rail station and the arena. The food is tasty and has a modern twist to Asian food. The staff are friendly and helpfull, but if you are looking for a vast menu or posh surrounding, this might not be for you. But give it a go if you dont mind wooden benches.
