“Yum dinner, strange service charge”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Two of us had a yummy dinner on Sat night. Excellent food and loads of it and very yummy cocktail. However we found it very strange that there was a 5% service charge included that was not a tip - it was going towards electricity and utility charges we were informed. A bit odd, we thought and surely this should be added to meal cost and not confuse customers that servers were receiving it?

“Tasty”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Visited here for a lunch with friends recently and was very impressed with the feed on offer. We had no issue getting a table even during a busy lunch hour and our food was served promptly and hot.

“Asian food for the west.”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

The quality of food is good, and most of the chefs are fantastic. The restaurant staff seems stretched a bit thinly, making service a little slow, but the staff seem to be managing it well, despite this

“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Myself and my husband ate here after getting stuck in the area because of heavy rain! It was a lovely surprise how nice it turned out. I had never eaten here before but my husband had. The service was friendly and very efficient. They even squeezed us in with our baby in a big quinny buggy! There was a nice buzz in the place. The food was fab - I had a prawn starter and they were gorgeous and Nasi Goreng for my main which was lovely. Would recommend and will be visiting again!
