The food here is really good and great value. However, we waited a long time for a table even though we could see lots of free tables in the restaurant which was annoying. Even when we were seated the service was a bit naff as we were ignored for a long time and had to keep asking the waiter to... More

Staff were attentive and friendly. Lots of choice on the menu and plenty for vegetarians. The home made prawn crackers were delicious. We had a couple of tasting plates followed by the pad Thai and Singapore curry. All were delicious although I felt that the Singapore curry was expensive at £13 when you consider the portion and content (chicken and... More

I come here a lot with my son. It has a great menu - mainly Vietnamese Malay and Thai and the food is always great and reasonably priced - the randang is excellent.

I was initially reluctant to visit because of my gluten allergy but I was attentively and knowledgeably informed of what I could and could not eat and I did not suffer any I'll effects. The price was reasonable and the food for the 3 of us was very good although I'd hoped for my portion to be a little larger.... More

Tampopo had been a favourite of my boyfriend and I for a while now, so much so that we decided to treat ourselves mid-week by attending the Vegetarian tapas night. Neither of us are actually vegetarian, but we were interested to see if Tampopo could change our minds with its varied and exciting menu. I usually do not find tapas... More

I started with the chicken satay which was ok but not memorable. My partner had the Rolls and they were much tastier. We both had Red Thai curry which was lovely and we would have it again. The only bug bear is that we were in and out within 20mins so could not enjoy the experience of dining out. The... More
