The food was really plain and the service was really poor. We booked a table but had to wait half an hour to get the table. The staff didn't really care about it. Once we finished they immediately brought us our bill. We didn't feel welcome at all.


Food is nothing special. And service is very poor. They just want to kick you out to make space for other poor (and not well-informed) people queuing outside to get a table. Awful experience.


We had our table booked for 8 people, however 2 of them were late and we were constantly rushed and reminded that those two places will be taken away if they don't show up now. Eventually we had to leave due to the staff being incredibly rude and impatient. I understand it was busy evening but this is unacceptable. Can not rate food as we did not even get to try..So if you want a relaxed environment for your diner this would be the last place to go..

Enjoyed my take away of Pho and deep fried tofu with chili and lemongrass, although the latter could have done with a little more lemongrass. Portions were generous, service was efficient and prices about right.


Excellent variety of food. The scallops and monkfish with dill were fantastic. On the negative side, the wine is overpriced, the place is very noisy, and the waiters are keen to move you on.
