    Excellent fresh food prepared and delivered with great service. We have never tasted food this good outside London. The fish had been skinned and tempuraed and tasted so fresh on arrival at the table. The staff were very helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived. The food is top quality and I can't recommend highly enough. We will be back soon

    Absolutely FANTASTIC. First restaurant we have been to since the crisis started. Honestly, the cleanest place I have ever seen, cleaner then any [hospital] I have even been to. Great, ordering process, very clever and seamless. And the food, well just out of this world good. Can’t wait to come again, maybe tomorrow.
