Some of the staff members are extremely rude, i loved the food but the service is enough to put me off ever coming again.

The waitress got my order slightly wrong which is completely fine, however, when i told her instead of apologising she proceeded to argue with me, insisting i was in the wrong. It was extremely embarrassing and unprofessional! I was with 3 other people who heard me order & they agreed she was out of order.

When we got our food the other waitress who served us also had a bad attitude on her!! My boyfriend asked her what this dish was called as she was just placing them down all over the table. She snapped at him and said 'if you let me finish i will do it at the end'. Really really rude. When she had finished putting down all the dishes she didnt even tell us what they were & walked off.

Seems like most of the staff are miserable working here. Customers are spending £100/£200+ at a time, i expected much better.

The 2 stars are for the amazing chefs who cooked the food.

Visited last night with my partner and had an amazing evening. We last came 3 years ago and had been waiting for an opportunity to come again. Our waitress Sam was fab and so knowledgeable. She gave us great advice about how much to order and was really attentive throughout the meal. We shared the caramel soy beef fillet and 6 small plates. Food and drinks were divine and the atmosphere was great. Firework with dessert was a lovely surprise and was the icing on the cake to a delicious meal. Thanks Sam and the team, we won’t leave our next visit so long!

We had lunch at Tattu today and we couldn’t have been more impressed.
We were an hour early, which was no problem.
Our waitress (Irene) was AMAZING. The service could not have been better.
We ordered 5 small plates and 1 large plate - everything was delicious.
The cocktails are fabulous and really have the ‘wow’ factor.
We were very well looked after and when Irene knew it was a birthday treat she bought out a firework with our dessert (cherry blossom - absolutely beautiful).
I can’t recommend this beautiful restaurant enough.
You won’t be disappointed.
