Called in for a beer and something to eat, only as we'd stopped to look at the menu outside and it looked reasonable. I ordered a pint of Tiger and my girlfriend asked for a half of Chang, but we both ended up with a pint brought to us.

Food was tasty, but the portion sizes were very small compared to other places we'd eaten.

It's a place to be seen type of bar, they didn't discriminate against us straight people but would we go back ? Not a chance, there's hundreds of other places to eat and drink.

We went here mainly for the cheap drinks. They are cheap, and the staff do their best to make you drink them faster than you intended. It IS a place where you come to drink and watch people, NOT an all-night place. The service is, as noted, mostly focussed on attracting new customers , not to maintain what they already got. As long as you set your expectations right, this place is great!

I am writing this from Telephone Bar across the street. Two nights in a row, I experienced very poor service at the balcony bar. Last nights meal was almost in edible. No apology. Poor service, bad food. Has gone down hill rapidly in the past year.

Pleasant evening ,good venue but the bill was padded by the waiter ordering food and drink for himself on our bill --when we queried it they steadfastly maintained no problem and in the end you don't want to spoil the evening so we paid,but subsequently discovered the discrepancies --if you go there check your bill carefully

Opposite telephone bar, tourist and expats and some locals hunting tourist. More staff try to make you come inside rather than offering a good service when you are inside. No worth.
