Really dissapointed that we were not told when ordering the combination entree, that the kitchen was out of fresh spring rolls. If we had known, we probably would have ordered something different. When the entree arrived at the table I questioned this and was Not given any other options - such as returning the entree and/or a discount for not being provided with what we ordered.

The food was very good but our party felt that we had to wait too long for our food once we had ordered.

Each time I have been to Spirit House, once seated, I feel it takes too long for the wait staff t come to the table to ask if we want to order drinks.

We had an enjoyable dining experience, and for two out of three of us, it was our first visit. We did have quite a wait but the restaurant was extremely busy so this was understandable. Appreciated the apology when our meal was delivered. Great service.

We waited absolutely ages for our meals. We probably ordered around 6.40pm and at 7:20pm I had to go and ask if our meals were coming because we had to leave soon to be somewhere by a certain time. The waitress was not even surprised so I got the feeling it happens alot. Then one main came out about 5 minutes before the other, presumably because we were waiting? But if we hadn't asked, does that mean it would have sat there for ages waiting for the curry to be ready.

Green curry was amazing! Seafood boat should have different spice options with the soup/curry for it should be thicker. Very friendly staff. Tables needed cleared quicker. Water jug would be good on table rather than the staff coming back and forwards to fill our glasses as it interups conversation alot. Overall I love this place and recommend.

We book for 5 people. The disappointing thing was there was 20 to 25 minutes from the first persons meal coming out to the last meal coming out to the last dinner. We like to eat together rather than watching others eat while waiting for their meal that was ordered at the same time. Poor service and no explanation why. We were just told oh yours is on its way. Yeah it was! 15 minutes later! Not good enough Spirit house. You need to improve on this. The first person had finished by the time the last person received their main meal. Better lighting would improve reading the menu.On a positive note lovely food though.

We had a lovely evening at the spirit house, gorgeous food with friendly staff and a very intimate atmosphere, we will certainly be back. We were not prepared for the hotter than hot mustard dressing for our prawn entree' lol but it was delicious all the same. Do try it. We will come for lunch next time

Portion size appears to be smaller than they normally were. Prawn entree was disappointing for the price. We loved the battered chicken & cashew and the ginger chicken stir fry was good but could have done a bit more chicken.

The food was delicious but the wait time was really long. People came in after us and had their meals before we did. We were put in a really dark corner with no lighting, we could not read the menu due to the light. We all had to sit there with torch's on our phones. Had we been able to read the menu and have a meal in a reasonable time frame you would have been 5 5 5 but we got forgotten about. We were asked once if we wanted drinks, we were there for a night out but the service let you down badly.

The place was fine. They kicked us out at 9.30 on the dot which seems to be a really early time to close - better to stay open longer to accommodate your customers. Had run out of rice paper rolls - seems to be an odd thing to run out of...fish - I can understand, rice paper rolls - make some more?

Food was absolutely delicious but thought the waiter asking us to order quickly as there was a busy night ahead was not strange at the time, but odd as our meals took a long time to arrive at our table after ordering, considering there were not many others seated when we arrived. The entree was bought out smartly but the mains took quite a while to arrive and 3 out of 4 of us had ordered salad which is not amazingly time consuming to plate up. The tables got busier and busier meanwhile we were still waiting for our mains. The air was incredibly stuffy as the heat pump was belting out on a full high temperature which was unnecessary as it wasnt cold outside and once the restaurant fills up with people and you start eating spicy meals...it was actually quite uncomfortable and was glad to get outside for some fresh air as I felt light headed and faint which put a downer on a nice tasting salad.

We dined on an obviously busy evening as there was a big concert in town. We’re told there would be a 25 minute wait on the food and almost an hour later we had had starters but no mains and no update. We had to ask a waiter to clear our starter plates as we weren’t checked on at any point after our order being taken. Understandable but maybe next time, a few more staff on would make things run a little smoother. We were also sat on a great table looking out to the sea, However once the sun went down it was really dark and hard to see the food in front of you. Food was tasty and good value for money.

The food was lovely , the lovely waiter said that the drinks were a complimentary cos we didn’t get our starters . But the waiter didn’t come back to us to see if we’re woulld like another drink so we left
