It was billed as a 12 plate tasting menu. There were two meat eaters and one vegetarian and the only way we could have the tasting menu was to order an extra vegetarian - no flexibility given when I phoned. Small things like this make all the difference because some of the dishes overlapped and it's not a big deal to manage. I'm a caterer and know this could be easy to sort. One of the meat plates was prawn crackers!

Glass noodle rolls were the tastiest. Should have provided chilli sauce and soy sauce. Veg dumplings all taste free. Edamame - Giraffe do an excellent version you should look up Crazy Bear and not provide bland like this. Crispy seaweed was bordering on burnt.

The best thing about this place is the loo which is difficult to work out due to it's disguise in the wall and inside where it's full of mirrored tiles and confusing. What a trip!

Excellent service throughout the meal - we really appreciated the waiters being so attentive to top up the water and wine when needed. The meal was lovely - far too much food but we did our best to finish it all as it was so nice. We loved the amibience and decor but just one thing let it down the lighting although atmospheric with only one tiny dim light on our table we really struggled to see the menu and wine list! Perhaps just a couple of tea lights on the tables would make all the difference... although I expect Health and Safety would be an issue!

The subpar food quality really let this experience down. The decor was nice, the service was fine, but the pacing of the meal was poor since they brought out too many dishes at once, and because the dishes were all of subpar quality, there was really no joy in this meal. It felt like something to "get through" rather than to be savored and enjoyed. I don't understand why they'd offer a tasting menu and put so little effort into food, its presentation, its creativity, and its taste. A shame, really. We were looking forward to a nice meal there but this didn't deliver on the most important aspect: the food. Maybe it was just an off night.

Fantastic staff and gorgeous food. The bar downstairs looked lovely too but we didn't manage to get down there as we had to leave. Great restaurant.

Perfect for an evening with friends and cocktails, the 12 dishes came out in 4 courses, all good, particularly the prawn toast and the dim sum. Service was efficient and friendly with a fair bit of banter and the bar downstairs was great for a glass of good rum to finish the evening. We went fairly late with a 10pm sitting, it was good busy at that point but not rammed.

Booking experience was a disaster. Response to emails is non-existent. They found us a table. Food was AMAZING. HOWEVER, we told them when we arrived that we had booked the 12 plates offer (per our reservation) and THEY gave us the wrong 12 plates menu.. when we got the bill we had to argue with them to reduce the bill to £29.50 per head from £50 per head. Even the waiter said we had eaten it so we had to pay for it! Ended the night with a bad taste in our mouths.. very disappointing and very embarrassing.. especially for a birthday meal :(
