Very friendly and attentive service. Great drinks, but I knew that already from previous visits. What genuinely surprised me was the food. Incredibly tasty. Portions are not huge, which I see as a plus. Prices are justified (read: not cheap, but also not over-priced).

Lovely staff, great atmosphere, fab drinks. My only thing is the mac and cheese is a little dry and tastes metallic. Whether that’s the choice of cheese or the pan in which it’s cooked I’m not sure.

Love the creativity and touch of reservation written on the table! Good food and cocktails - if you're looking for a good dinner with drinks, this is the place to be. Good music choice, though I'll personally prefer if the music is tune down slightly to make chatting a wee easier. But overall, I'll definitely come back again!

Everything were great but the reason I rate is where there’s a slot time for timing where people kinda enjoy everything and we have to rush up and pack to go cause we run out of time. It would be nice to have more longer.

Hi, the experience was very good. However, wish we were not bound by time limit to dine at the restaurant. The service was also abit slow because the shop was full house and we had to repeat the orders acouple of times. Otherwise service was excellent, and the food n drinks were good. Will visit again.

The music gets too loud into the evening, impossible to talk. Also difficult to have a second drink, by the time it is prepared it’s already the end of the table booking.
