    We love this place, always great food with a range of prices to suit everyone. Only one small criticism... the table tops are looking a bit shabby and in need of an overhaul.
    Would recommend for lunch and dinner, formal or informal dining. Great spot for pre theatre dining if going to the Palladium!

    Only minus = loud background music

    Cocktail: the glass was full of ice, only a few sips then it's finished.
    Food: sashimi starter: only three pieces of fish. Tempera: one of the veg tempera was not thoroughly fried, you can still see a layer of white flour... wagyu beef soba: recommended by the waitress, nice presentation but very take-away like taste, only see some chopped beef mince on stir fried noodle. Desert: they call it ???, but more like cold pudding.

    Maybe it's a nice venue for drinks in summer for the terrace, but the food is really not that impressive.
