“Amazing food with added night club!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Great food and service was fantastic
If you want a more romantic night, avoid Saturdays as was busy and loud.
Would definitely go again.

Dear Jodie T

Glad to read that you enjoyed your visit to Aqua Eight. Yes, Saturdays can get very busy because lots of people also come for our DJ sessions or the live musical entertainment in the Aqua Garden.

Tuesday- Thursday evenings are perfect when you want a quieter, or more romantic, dining experience.

“Once again totally amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

Still the best food in town! Will continue to come back as often as I can. Soft shell crab, baked scallop with wasabi mayo both full of flavour! Phad Thai Noodles never disappoint! Love the cocktails also. Only feedback we gave was that the Chilli beef with scallions looks like its chicken. To which they assured us it's beef and a fair few people due ask that. Tastes great either way!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

A very modern stylish restaurant which served up some fantastic food and with great service. The only less-than-perfect point was the vegetable tempura as we seemed to have only one type of vegetable rather than a variety, and at £8.50 it was the most pricey veg tempura I've ever come across so was expecting more. Everything else was impeccable - we'll be back :)

Dear MrsPrice71

The feedback you've given us is fantastic, thank you. You're right in thinking there's something amiss with that vegetable tempura dish. There certainly should be different types of vegetable in it, and the fact that you didn't get that concerns us. When you return next time, do call Helen, our PR lady, on 07974 502847. She will ensure that you do indeed get the correct vegetable tempura dish, on the house.
