The atmosphere is ok as the restaurant itself is nothing special - a tiny front section and a purpose-built extension at the rear - total only about 10 tables. However every course (5) was excellent and the service was comprehensive, without being pushy or annoying.

I visit Subo every 6 weeks when the menu changes and I am continuously blown away by the standard of food they serve. Bo is a wizard. The menu is always creative, fun and most importantly - DELICIOUS!
