    The food was poor compared to their usual food. I couldn’t eat my main it was so horrid. Service very sketchy too. No lifts working so had to walk down 13 flights from rooftop ( fireworks). Roof view of fireworks but very far away.

    The food was pretty terrible to be honest. The menu has a bizarre universal 50% off every item, which gives a bad impression to start with, like some low quality high street Chinese buffet. The menu might be described as eclectic, but I prefer to call it completely random. The meat was good and cooked well, but the composition of the dishes and accompanying sauces was not pleasant. The restaurant is tired and the whole thing is clearly a distant memory for the original chef and team who set it up several years ago.
