I went here for dinner after a work conference, we walked straight in, no booking required.
The restaurant has a dark moody atmosphere and appeared a little tucked away but the food was nothing to be shy about. I had the vegetarian curry and it was delicious - full of flavour. Also the papadums were perfectly salted - could've definitely eaten more. A bonus that the meal was gluten free and still delicious.

Just wanted a quick meal before a show, do wasn't expecting gourmet cuisine. But the food here even fell short of those expectations.
The pork belly bowl was the best of an ordinary bunch. Soft shell crab was ok but quite bland, and the 'seafood taster' was some smoked salmon, very bland sardine and prawns that wouldn't have been out of place in a 1970s prawn cocktail.
Convenient, but don't expect inspiring food.

The food and drink was quite good but our experience was soured by the attitude of staff. The salmon was well prepared and tasty. However the service, while reasonable to start with deteriorated significantly by the end of the meal. We weren't asked whether we wanted dessert or coffee. When we asked about dessert at about 9:15, we were told somewhat sullenly that there was only one dessert and that was deep fried mars bar. The bill was placed on the table before we had the opportunity to order coffees. It was clear that the staff wanted us gone !

Ate here in July with friends
I enjoyed the overall experience it is a great place to meet and catch up with friend in a great location in the city. Drinks a little limited in choice but not a big issue
Food mains all looked and tasted good some of the dishes came out bit Luke warm but ok the starters and sweets were a bit overpriced for what we received but overall a good experience. I would recommend it to others

Great food, great service - we will be back. The staff were very patient with our group who couldn't decide what they wanted.
