We went in to this restuarant as it was busy on a Monday evening, which we assumed was a good sign. Sadly though the service was extremely slow, and we even waited 15 minutes to het our drinks. The starter came after a while, which was the mixed starter. The cripsy seaweed was not cripsy and the squid luke warm. There was then a long wait for the main course, which at best was average, the pad thai had so much garlic as to make it almost inedible. The rest of the meal was ok. We were not the only ones who were not happy with the very slow service. To cap it all they added 10 per cent service charge to the bill which we asked to be deducted as the service was so awful. No apology from them. Definitely would not recommend this place.

we came for an evening meal. The staff were nice, and the restaurant just busy enough for a nice atmosphere. Lots of people who seemed to be regulars - always a good sign. We enjoyed our meal, but did think it was on the pricey side. Did not really appreciate the inclusion of a service charge either (especially as our waiter spilled a drink on our table! bless, he was embarrassed.) We enjoyed it here though, tasty food.

It has a nice interior, but we waited nearly an hour for our food (it was only half full at this time) and 15 min for a bottle of water. The food was ok but nothing special. We were not the only one not satisfied but they did not even apologized, nobody really cared.

Had lunch here. Service was great, food exceptional with great creative dishes. Restaurant was busy on our arrival but that didn't detract from offering excellent table service. Staff were interacting well with customers.
