This innovative dining venture celebrates signature dishes from Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar, and celebrity chefs Simon Rimmer and Galton Blackiston.

Designed to question ideas about frozen food, the standard was high and the food very tasty. Also a really fancy menu, not something you would normally associate with frozen foods. Also a good training ground for the students who served us, they were very polite and proffesional.

Went there as a group of four and the value for money was oyut of this world. Quality fare served in a very friendly and professional way by some excellent young students. Support this because you will be delighted.

We went to N-Ice for lunch and had a 3 course meal. The food was very well presented and the service was prompt. Considering that all the food was prepared from frozen ingredients, the food was quite tasty. For starters, I had roasted aubergines with tempura which was tasty but the batter was not very crunchy probably because it was frozen. For mains, I had a snapper which was delicious. The only real negative is possibly the service because we were late to our booking and were initially told that if we were 10 minutes late, our orders may not be taken, and the table we were seated at had not been cleared away properly (used water bottle on the table) and I was missing a napkin. Generally, it was a great experience and experiment.

Dined at lunch; Menus came quick, but orders slower; water offered but not left on the table, and had to ask twice to get topped up (but no offer of wine- which other tables had): butter on table but had to ask for bread. Food all looked pretty good, though a roasted veg included still frozen. Interesting range of food- curry eaters very happy with lamb curry; smoked salmon and basil terrine delicious: sea bass pretty solid.Souffle of mango with melting chocolate inside was terrific. Mostly hard to tell food had been frozen. But the whole process took 1 hour 40 mins after the 20 min wait for the table ( which wasn't pre-occupied- they just forgot us). Silly questionnaire to fill in before and after- could have asked better questions! Not a relaxing way to spend a lunchtime! But for a suggested donation of £10 per head it has to be good value!

The food was poorly cooked, so didn't demonstrate how good frozen food can be. Might have been better to have stuck with fish fingers!

We dined at Noon. We were the first ones in! It was a Pop Up restaurant serving Frozen Food with menus designed by some fabulous chefs. It was cooked brilliantly and served excellently by the Students. The attention to detail for the kids (3 and 4) was amazing - I have not experienced it before....A literal "half portion" was a divided main meal but with all the sauces / trimmings added as for a full size dish. 10 / 10 fo making the kids have a great experience too. Thank You

First impression was great as room wonderfully decorated. Food was excellent and served by very well mannered and interesting staff who were very attentive and friendly. Food choices were very good and wine very reasonably price. Something for everyone.
