We were a very large family group spanning three generations. The staff were extremely attentive, accommodating and patient (a lot of us were up and down with little ones throughout the meal 😬). The food was fantastic, the vibe relaxed and playful, staff amazing! Ace time had by all! We’ll be back and would definitely recommend!

Didnt have dumplings burgers salt fish fritters or the doubles which was a shame as we wanted those BUT what we did have instead was lovely and the staff were lovely too and we got a free birthday cocktail for one of our party.Highly recommended and would visit again to taste the things we couldnt this time

Service could be improved massively. All the staff were really friendly but could be much quicker. When we arrived, we waited a while and then had to ask for the menus.

Food was excellent, our server was enthusiastic, funny and very friendly. However the wait for food and drinks was way too long. It was over an hour and a half between ordering and receiving our main course, and we had to ask for one of our drinks three times. We would love to come again if there were more staff and more efficient service. There was also an issue with exploding sauce bottles, this happened more than once!

Worst service ever!! I had to wait more than 1 hour for my starters. The rice was burned and most of the staff is rude. They didn't care that I was waiting for more than 1 hour for a few chicken strips. It's not a place to go back

Very slow service Waitresses were friendly but not attentive at all One of our starters were cold but the food tasted good We had to try and wave down waitresses to ask for another drink or to pay our bill We had to wait a long time for our food to arrive, our food seemed to arrive after others had their food bought out even though we had been sat down and ordered before them I probably wouldn't go back which is a shame

Amazing food, full of flavour. Service slower than would have expected. At 7.30pm they had run out of a few things but the dishes and drinks we did order were really tasty. Definitely go back.

Leave it to Esmies? I’ll say ‘don’t bother’!! I booked a table for 12 people as a get together..When we got there, we were told our table had been given away because we were late! Even though I had booked it for 7:30 and we were there by 7:15. After speaking to the manager, we were sat down. Now, typically a waitress will appear and take drink orders..a waitress didn’t appear at our table until 8:20pm. A whole hour has gone by and somehow they had forgotten about the big table of 12 in the middle of the restaurant! After we order our drinks, it takes another 30mins before we receive them..by this time we were beginning to wonder about our food. Another 30mins goes by and after going to request about our orders, the manager apologises and tells me that the food is coming...20mins goes by and still nothing!! By this time everyone at the table is looking worn out and beginning to question whether it was best to line our stomachs with food before coming out to eat at this ‘restaurant’! Eventually the food comes..but by this time, we have waited 2 hours 10mins for a meal. Is it worth it? No! After the meal, I asked the manager whether it is possible to get a discount to compensate for the inconvenience of waiting and being ignored for 2hrs. Her response was that she’s not going to give us a discount because she did us a favour by having 12 people at the restaurant, implying that our money and patronage was not welcome. She said they did the best they could because it was a busy day for them...but I disagree. They had time to prep for a big table because i had taken my time to personally go the day before to make sure the manager was aware we were coming. I must say, it was a huge disappointment to be treated so shabbily and hint that our money was not welcome because it was an inconvenience for them. I am a huge believer in supporting black companies but after the way I have been treated, I would definitely go elsewhere with my money!
