Food was superb, and lovely atmosphere. The service is a little slow (though very friendly) so make sure you leave yourself enough time. But I would highly recommend and we will be back!

Excellent friendly and attentive service, with a great variety of dishes to choose from. The food was hot, fresh and delish and good value for money. Cant wait to go back and try some more of their beautiful food.

Good food, nice staff, but too cold with wind through the plastic making the need for a heater paramount. Booths uncomfortable.

After a fairly average first visit a few weeks back due to very poor service, we decided to give Black Rice another chance as the food was just delicious. We Werner disappointed. I booked online at fairly short notice. Parking in this area is shocking so allow time to find somewhere. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, food came out in good time and our young waitress was politely attentive. Portions are great and good value. Food is just delicious although i was disappointed with the deep fired ice-cream. Compared to the size of the banana fritters it was very small and underwhelming and not large enough to share. Probably didn't need it anyway and a small criticism!! We will definitely be back.

We haven't had been to a Chinese restaurant for years since going vegan, (due to lack of selection) so was very much looking forward to this experience. It was great to see a menu page of vegan dishes to choose from. We really enjoyed the food immensely, the flavours were wonderful. The staff were friendly and helpful. We will be booking again!

We booked at short notice on a wet Sunday evening. The restaurant wasnt very busy . Our waitress was very polite but the overall service was non-existent. I had a mocktail (dry July) and my daughter ordered a regular cocktail. it took nearly 30mins to arrive and clearly the maker coudnt find the ingredients as we could see her searching . They should have just come and told us. The food was absolutely delicious and good portion sizes but they forgot one dish which we had to remind them about (fried rice) and we chose to take it home. There was one apology for the wait and we were told that the soft bao dumplings were made on the spot as they had none in stock. They were amazing and worth the wait. I think with better communication we wouldnt have been worried but we spend so much time wondering if they had forgotten things that it affected our overall experience. We will give Black Rice another go as the food was so yummy but I am hoping that we just struck a bad night staff number wise!

We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was second to none, we absolutely loved the cocktails. We just love the fact that we have such amazing cuisine close to home without having to travel into the city for it. We are well travelled and the flavours on the menu were some of the best Asian fusion we've had. Keep up the amazing work, you guys are doing great. We'll certainly be back for more.

My husband tried your vegan menu for the first time and we were blown away. We highly recommend it and will definitely be coming back again. My only recommendation would be to state the serving size in the vegan menu.

Good, they didn't seem to have any of the meals we were after. But overall, food was good and we will definitely be back to try the things we were originally after.

Food was fantastic. Restaurant is gorgeous. We sat in the terrace, it was a bit cold with only heater for the whole area but nonetheless we had a lovely evening.
