    Verdict- delightful!

    Lovely atmosphere. Classy crowd. Not too loud or bright.
    Good starter and mains. Amazing desert.
    Only downside- cocktails. Veggie cocktails- one had a kale foam on top- had a strong smell and unpleasant taste but the carrot and ginger with vodka was drinkable.

    Would definitely visit again.

    Free flow bubbles and sushi...what more do you want? Good food for a good price. The service was a bit slow, but this is expected when any restaurant offers free flow drinks. There is a lot of food, the course keep coming.

    Food was amazing.
    The set offer was really value for money.
    I was suprisingly impressed.

    beautiful setting, attentive staff, cocktails that are that little bit special, starter and desert lovely but mains were a bit stodgy.

  • ((((* 16 February 2017 by Stephanie from Mitcham

    Lovely atmosphere, tasty food which was filling. Good choice of cocktails but felt these were overpriced at around £12-£15. We had 3 courses for £29 plus a cocktail which was great value. Not sure the food was worthy of the prices without this deal. Service was good but nothing special given that service charge was automatically added to the bill even though there was only two of us dining.

    We found the restaurant noisy, pretentious, small portions and the 'deal' we booked on really wasn't worth it; service was very slow and there was no feeling of being 'looked after'. I think there may have been better service is we had ordered from the main menu - felt kinda second class on the meal deal.

    A very good meal, well worth the special offer for set menu.The drinks are over-priced, 2 glasses of white wine was almost the same price as the 3 courses.So what should have been a really inexpensive meal cost more simply by adding a drink per person.
