    Me and my partner booked the 6 course brunch and unlimited verve clique champagne for £65 pp and it was worth every penny. The quality of food and the staff were both excellent and no doubt we'll be back soon

    Excellent meal and night out. All staff were very friendly and professional. Fist time I had eaten in a Japanese restaurant so was a bit apprehensive but food was amazing great tastes and beautifully presented. All details of the menu was explained by our lovely waitress. I would recommend to all. We then had drinks outside on the roof top bar a lovely end to a great night out.

    Super food and an excellent waitress. Completely spoilt by our exit from the restaurant. We paid the bill and then noticed that we had been charged for a coca cola which we had not received. Rather than cancel two cards and repay we took a very small bottle of coke (£3.50) from the restaurant as agreed with the waiting staff. We were not allowed to leave the restaurant - lift stopped and security called. No explanation except that it was the 'rule'. How ridiculous, could not some form of discretion have been used. What were we going to do with a half drunk, very small bottle of coke on the streets of London. We were completely sober and smartly dressed.

    Was ok, staff were well organised and professional, food was great but very much on the small side. They have obviously created a low budget menu for a promotions to bulk up numbers. Restaurant was too rowdy with bar goes passing through with a constant stream to the balcony.

    The food and service was brilliant

    It was quite non descript. The entry was impressive and the service. The cocktail was very unpleasant.

  • ((((* by from London

    Everything was presented with a difference, from the complimentary cocktail (non alcoholic option was offered) to the very last dish. The only complaint we had was that there could have been a little more of the main dishes. It was so tasty.
