The restaurant and the concept seemed quite nice - modern food, relaxed atmosphere and a nice venue. Once inside the lack of quality was apparent. The overwhelming smell of pungent seafood, the poor lighting, the rickety tables and relatively unhelpful staff. For around £8 a...More

Description
“The sun is always rising somewhere in the world” A team of chefs who have drawn their inspiration from their travels and memories serve up their recollection of global street food and sharing dishes. We bring these creations back to our home and recreate them here for you – hoping to take you on a journey of flavour and excitement. Our food is essentially served in what you may refer to as ‘tapas’- choose about 3 dishes each and we will send them to the table as and when each of them is ready. We would recommend you choose 1 dish from each the ‘LAND’, ‘EARTH’ and ‘SEA’ – It’s all about sharing and having a little taste of everything in a social environment with your friends or family.
