Food was good, however terrible service. We had to wait an hour and a half for our mains. Also several things we chose on the menu were not available and we were only told quite a while after we had ordered. The restaurant itself is quite cold with the main door opening and closing quite frequently also and we were also sat near the toilets where the door was left open most of the time which wasn’t particularly enjoyable. The staff also aren’t very attentive and we had to ask for water quite a few times. It’s a shame as it does have a lot of potential and the food was quite nice once we did receive it but I would not recommend this neither go there again.

I will definitely come back as my overall experience was great. Loved the trees and the decor! We booked this lunch for 1.15, so I appreciate it was quite a quiet time for you guys, maybe some music could compensate for the emptiness of the restaurant. The server wasn't too engaging and it felt like we didn't come in the right time for her or kitchen. She mentioned that there is only one portion of veggie rolls left, and after us debating who is going to get them she said that she will ask if the chef can make more. I guess if this was only the matter of cooking them, this shouldn't have been mentioned unless they were out of stock.

Great food and great gluten free options! A few dishes were slightly pricey but worth it.

Although i really enjoyed my meal and time at the restaurant I felt the atmosphere was a little bit cold. I did arrive for an early dinner at 6pm but I think some music and softer lightning would have made the restaurant more enjoyable. The food was delicious though and the staff were very helpful

I really enjoy the food here but i think the service from the staff on this particular occasion let the whole experience down. One guy was really great but the other younger female member really was quite forgetful and not very hospitable. Maybe she was still quite new but if the service is consistently good all the time this place would rate far higher for me.

The food and drink was amazing, the service went from very attentive to very distant. But overall we had an amazing time, the food was incredible.

Everything was fine aside from the aubergine! It was forgotten about and we had to prompt our servers to bring it. When it came it was completely hollow and lifeless plus very salty. It's a shame as I've seen how the aubergine should look. Probably an unfortunate one-off. everything else was fab :)

I heard about it but i had no idea i would be entering a tunnel cover wall to wall in beautiful graffitis.. And then surprisingly enough you find yourself outside the restaurant with it’s own different identity and delicious food! I would definitely be coming back with more friends.!

Disappointed with the food. The spring rolls and the sticky wings were really good. But the Noodles and Pho were not very nice. Overpriced for the quality.
