    A lovely dining experience from beginning to end. After requesting a private table we were given a lovely spot at the back of the restaurant in a booth. The waiters were very friendly and attentive and offered their suggestions for dinner and drinks - the food was amazing, I had the pork belly and would 100% recommend. Brilliant selection of cocktails also.

    My friend and I ate here last Saturday. The staff were very warming and friendly on arrival. We started our meal off with a bucksfizz which was absolutely delicious. The food was stunning and we weren't waiting too long for it to come. Good vibes only! The workers definitely care about there customers.. I had a cut from breaking in a new pair of boots, and the staff took care of me by supplying me with bandaids.. very helpful. I can't wait to go back to London to eat here again! The atmosphere was enjoyable and safe! Also, the staff were very complimentary

    Great food and atmosphere. I was a little concerned that it may be too noisy for a serious conversation but the waiter said we had been reserved a quiet table away from the main music speakers and it was great, we could converse quite easily. The food was delicious and well presented. waiters polite and efficient and the atmosphere happy and friendly.

    Excellent menu choices something for everyone.
    Reasonable prices.
    Excellent service.
    Wonderful decor.
    My Red curry with noodles was exceptional ! Maybe a few less red peppers and white onion would have made it perfect. Had to push a lot of those to the side.
    All of the other five dishes my friends ordered had no complaints.
    Wonderful evening spent with you!

    As ever, the service was charming, attentive and warm, and the atmosphere buzzy, inviting and fun and this more than made up for the perfectly fine but rather average meal we had last night. Good selection of wines by the glass.

    Hi Guys,
    As always we had a fantastic time, the booking was easy the food just fantastic High Society Eggs wine deserts Irish coffee. Our waiter was a young slim lad curly hair, sorry forgot his name but so so charming, a proper little salesman. What a happy chatty chap. Love the Decor OMG just beautiful. I've already shared my pics on FB. Thanks guys see you again soon. Would definitely recommend for a Valentines Day meal, the only sad part is that you have to leave.
