We went to the restaurant ahead of a showing of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night". The menu was themed and a good selection of choices. My wife is glutton and lactose intolerant but they catered perfectly for her and adapted each meal to her requirements. Service was superb and will a good wine menu we will be back again

Ate at the Circle Restaurant prior to seeing Miss Saigon. As usual dinner was themed with the show so Asian inspired. Once again the theatre Chefs delivered, and with Emily and the rest of the waiting staff doing a great job it made for a memorable evening, Thank you.

We ate in the restaurant tonight before Miis Saigon. Dissapointing to say the least. Tiny portions and the cod ordered by my friend was bland and tasteless with a noticeable lack of broth, supposedly one of the main ingredients. I had the pork which consisted of three tiny slices of loin on a couple of tablespoons of cabbage. For dessert I ordered the peach and pistachio cake which although looked very pretty on the plate consisted of three minute pieces of cake approximately one inch long and half an inch thick, each of a tiny spot of raspberry coulis, one lonely raspberry and two small slices of peach plus a spoonful of cream or similar. Far from value for money and will think twice about eating here again.

We ate in the Circle restaurant before seeing Miss Saigon. As always the food was great, but unfortunately the night was marred by a 35 minute wait for a cold starter followed by a luke warm main! The menu was themed for the show, which was great. Our main course was not as hot as we would have liked, but after waiting so long for our starter, we didn't have the time to make a fuss as by this time it was almost 6.40 p.m. and the show started at 7.30 and we were concerned that if we sent it back we wouldn't have time to eat our third course. There is availability to eat your sweet in the interval, but having mobility issues and having to use the lift to get back to the restaurant in this time, we know you don't have enough time to do that and enjoy it. Other than the problems with delay in service, the food itself was great and our waiter did take off the cost of our bread and olives to compensate for the delay, which was much appreciated.

We had dinner here before seeing Miss Saigon, the food served was in keeping with the show, asian influence.
It was ok but not fine dining. Our waitress couldn't have been nicer which really did make the experience better.
I think it's good to try once or twice but with so many restaurants around to eat in it would be a shame to miss out on these.
