The over all experience was ok. I was told I could have a candle in the buns as it was my partners birthday but this didn’t happen. The wings were beautiful but the buns were really not to either of our tastes and we couldn’t eat them and actually made us quite ill. The atmosphere was average but the staff were lovely.

We did enjoy the food and place was quite nice. The only thing we didn't like was the menu, it was a bit filthy.

The visit was absolutely lovely and the food was great. The only reason I marked down on service was not because the service was poor - the service was absolutely greta but there simply was not enough staff there. I felt so sorry for the staff there as they were absolutely rushed off their feet and you had to wave them down to get served. This is not the staffs fault, the management should have employed more people that night. Food was amazing though!

Delicious food!! Lovely service. But do NOT go on Monday night because it is Open Mike night. Cannot hear your company over the extraordinarily loud and even worse amateur singers. Made for a really awkward and painful meal. Don’t know why you would ruin such a great space with such an awful event.

Great menu. Meat and veggie/ vegan options. Delicious fresh flavours. A little quiet for a Friday night. Also the booking was v frustrating as booked for 7.30pm and received 5.30pm confirmation. Cancelled and booked again and same thing happened.

Visited after seeing this place advertised on Instagram with their happy hour drinks with their signature shown here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ByAPetCD_1U/ However upon ordering you can only choose from 4 cocktails on the menu during “happy hour” which excludes the one in their advertisement, very misleading. The staff were friendly but not very attentive, possibly too busy for them to handle. Drinks were good however.

My friend and I lived and worked in Vietnam for a few months so we were hoping to reminisce through the food. The main lacked flavour but was nice with soya sauce and siracha added. We had to ask for these and it was hard to get attention throughout the meal, despite the restaurant not being fill up. Chocolate lava bao for dessert was delicious but perhaps worth sharing as we each struggled to finish. A staff member apologised at the end that they were short-staffed but even when they were available they were chatting and not paying attention. I’d go again anyway despite the service but it was a shame as it let down the meal.

We had to wait 15 minutes before our order was taken (only two of us) and the restaurant wasn't busy at the time. I feel like we were forgotten about and had to grab a waiters attention. Also during our meal we ordered more dishes but the waiters never removed the empty dishes leaving little free space on our table. However, the restaurant is stunning and the food and cocktails were amazing.

Great gem of a venue. VAT only added when asking for bill. Did order the Dragon cocktail however they had runout of dragon transfers and was not told until served up. Was overcharged and had to ask for money back which was abit of a palarva! Overall would try again and will still recommend however just won't rave about it.

The restaurant ambiance and food were good, it was just a shame the service was really slow and poor. We had to wait 30+ min for our drinks at the beginning (other tables who came after us received their food and drinks before us!) and then our food took another 20-30 to come out - and we didn't even receive all the dishes we ordered! Its really unfortunate because I really want to recommend the food, drinks and atmosphere of the place, but the service just made the whole experience unsatisfying :(
