    incredibly overpriced. One of the main dishes resembled and tasted like an old piece of salmon in dirty dishwater. The steak was delicious and the starters were quite nice. The portion sizes were not substantial enough to satisfy 3 of the 4 diners on the table. 3 further main courses had to be ordered. The service was courteous and friendly however trying to get the bill took an inordinate amount of time. one of the main courses ordered additionally was also sub par. the prices are Zuma or Nobu like and the food just doesn't live up to that....

    Convenient location. Good decor. Staff polite and efficient.My friend and I had the 3 course set menu. Al beautifully presented as expected. Wagyu Beef dish excellent and dessert interesting colours texture. The asparagus tempura was rather tough - younger veg should have been used. Shame no rice was included in the main course as one really cannot count beef on its own as a course.
    Overall tasty

    dark, dingy, a bit sleezy and overpriced especially the wine; over-attentive and uncaring service; appropriate for an oligarch down on his luck. However the food was very tasty.

    The veg dish on the mains offer(£26 offer) which I cannot remember was outstanding.Overall food was good. I thought the drinks were a bit expensive

    The £26 3 course menu was delicious and excellent value. The staff were solicitous and efficient. The spaciousness of the restaurant is very appealing and the music wasn't too loud, though it wasn't my kind of music at all, very characterless.

    Atmospheric though music little loud for us mature ladies. Food and service excellent. We had 3 course for £26 - lovely beef and portion good tho overall doubt it was enough for many males.

    Food was excellent. The beef was beautifully cooked and the violet ice cream was lovely.
