I came with a group of people, and really didn't like being forced to take the set menu. It should be a choice for customers and profiteering this way from large groups is detrimental to your reputation. The food is really delicious and I'd like to have been able to choose from the tapas menu instead. I believe you should have a wider range of drinks too, gun n tonic is hugely popular at the moment. Why not serve it?

The food was just absolutely unreal! It tasted so good and I can’t wait to go back again. I love the concept of the tapas so you can try plenty of dishes at the one time and the set menus are really good value. Genuinely, the food tasted so so good! I will be back 100% and i’ll Be telling everyone about this hidden gem as well.

Service was ok. Not much space to manoeuvre for them or us. Food was a plenty but somewhat hit and miss. Maybe it wasn't for us. I dunno. Enjoyed most of it. Give it a go yourself and see if it is your thing.

I found this restaurant because I needed a bao bun. My friend is not a fan is spicy food but we booked anyway as my needs outweighed her palette. The food was so good, she got a set menu and I ordered my bao buns (buttermilk free range chicken). Food was top notch, wine was great. Service was fab! 💯 recommend!

Very enjoyable evening, lovely ambience, food was amazing. We were sitting in the cushioned area which was really different. Lovely to have such a range of exciting vegetarian food for the vegetarians in our party. Service was excellent although it took a bit of time for the waiter to bring the bill after we asked for it.

Casual atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable service and very very very tasty food that will satisfy the most demanding! We'd a couple of vegan diners in our party and they loved the menu. We'll be back.

Thanks so much for accommodating us. We very much appreciated that you switched us from the cushioned seats to conventional chairs on account of my Dads knees! The food was amazing and we really enjoyed all the exotic flavours

Food excellent and lovely choices of wine. Wait staff seemed stressed and frustrated. Would return mid week but not at weekend. Was too busy , too hot in restaurant and staff were rushing around like they'd no time to serve or wait tables and it created an uneasy vibe for customers who were out for a relaxing night. Decor is beautiful and looks authentic. Really lovely seating arrangements, especially upstairs. Set menus a bit on the expensive side but food is fantastic , excellent quality and big portion sizes.

Our experience at Chameleon was as superb as always. The food was excellent and the (new to me) Bintang beer was a really good accompaniment. Well be booking in again very soon.
