    We had dinner before theatre, from their set menu. Lovely food which was greatly enjoyed. Helpful service. The meal included a cocktail but the one offered was not to our taste. Drinks were very expensive. The predominant crowd seemed to be young and probably pre-clubbing. The place was busy even early evening. And loud talking from the balcony bar and very loud modern music destroyed any atmosphere. However, no doubt we were in a minority thinking this!

    The food was amazing, well presented. Bottomless brunch had a great choice of cocktails & cava. I had a favourite bottomless brunch in Canary Wharf until I visited Aqua Kyoto! Staff were all lovely & very attentive.

    Dined with a friend at lunch. Had the set menu. Excellent food and excellent value. It is a large restaurant but it had enough people dining to not feel cavernous.

    Overly setting, food was to die for however service wasn’t. Quite pretentious, no communication and worth remembering that the customer is always right...

    The food was lovely and the staff very attentive. The set menu was good value but the additional drinks including £9 for two bottles of water was rather over the top. Also the seating position was not good as we were sat near to where there was a constant stream of traffic to and from the bar area which was not good. Overall I’d recommend but check the price of everything and ask to be sat towards the back near the wall.

    Good value. “Selection” of cocktails in offer was not true as there was only one cocktail type given. Service was good but could be slightly better by being less intrusive.
