The food is better than any other Asia restaurant in Suffolk. The presentation is better than you would ever think it might be, and the range offered is stellar.
It is also the perfect place to go on a night when you wish to have a few drinks after dinner in a bar type area which the downstairs does perfectly.

Thanks for such kind comments. The chefs do take great care with the presentation of the food, every bit as important as the overall taste and blend of flavours, so they will be very pleased that you are so appreciative of their work.

Fixed price menu of two courses for about £12.50. Good choice, including veggie options. Lovely service and really tasty food. Nice ambience and good position (if a little tucked-away!). This was my third or fourth visit.

Dear PaulB,

Thanks for coming to Aqua Eight again and so pleased you enjoyed your lunch here. Yes, it is a little tucked away, but Lion Street it does provide a lovely, peaceful antidote to the bustling town centre!

Located above it's bar on a little back street this is a gem in the middle of Ipswich. More pricey than your average Chinese but well worth it it offers a unique Asian fusion menu. Always delicious. Book ahead. The bar downstairs offers great cocktails and a lively but classy atmosphere.

Food, service and ambience were perfect.. Can't wait to go back.
We had the early bird set menu at 22£ per head. The quality and freshness were second to one.

Dear Foodie186338

It's always good to hear when someone has an "excellent" experience at Aqua Eight and thank you for telling us about yours. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the "early bird" menu; it's become a popular way for guests to enjoy non-peak time dining, when the restaurant is generally quieter.

We hope to see you again soon.
