    From arrival to when we left the staff and service were absolutely first class, we arrived for a 12 o'clock lunchtime booking and was a good choice as were seated next to a window with amazing views. The seats were a little wierd as quite high and had foot rests so were awkward to actually get yourself in close to the table. We had booked for the lunch menu at £35 pp. We ordered water and cocktails some alcoholic but also non alcoholic which were delicious, the only negative was the bottles of water were served at room temperature so I did ask for ice which nearly melted instantly, dissapointed the water was not nicely chilled ? The food was nice although the table was not really large enough for our party of 5 so when the main courses came there was not enough room and a dish had to be put on another serving trolley next to us. Our waiter was lovely and told me after I asked about the Wishing Tree located inside the restaurant, gave us tags to fill in, just with our personal wish then he hung them on the tree. We went to the 'Ladies' and these were amazing, as soon as you walked in you had a clear view over London, huge windows, no one could see in from that height ! The restuarant was full by he time we left but was not noisy. The bill was quite expensive, cocktails and waters pricey but definitely worth going once for the whole lovely experience.

    We had the set lunch menu for £35 each which is good value compared to the a la carte. The food was good and the views were great.

    The entire dining experience was slightly ruined by the receptionist who informed us we had to be there on time as the kitchen closed twenty minutes later! Given that it was the tube strike as we had to rely on the taxis this was incredibly stressful! When we arrived everything was fine and the lady who served us was great. The food was lovely however the monk fish soup was bland and disappointing. None of us could eat it. Interesting to observe that almost two hours later food was still being served! So why were we forced to rush like crazy to get there based on what the receptionist said?

    Fantastic view obviously!

    Wait staff were attentive, if not a little 'rushy', for example they brought our soup and dim sum at the same time and then we had to ask them to leave the dim sum with the lid on so it could stay warm while we ate the soup - I don't think it would have hurt to serve these separately. The food was mostly very good - would recommend the dim sum!

    Unfortunately one of the dishes with cuttlefish in was very chewy and tough, having not tried it before we asked the waiter if it was supposed to be like that and his response was 'not really, maybe they over cooked it'. Not really what you'd expect as an answer but hey ho!

    On the whole, pleasant experience but only chose it to see the view, wouldn't go back to the restaurant in a hurry.
