Food was lovely but found the service abit wanting. Polite but No greetings, water not poured at table and really no time that we were spoken to except when asked what we wanted

Delicious, authentic food and extravagant seating and decor, but somewhat let down by the service which was more reminiscent of a hawker-style take away joint - blunt and inattentive with a language barrier. Booking didn't seem to be important as the waitress wasn't aware of ours, but we were seated anyway since there were only two other tables occupying the largely empty dining room at 7pm on a Friday night. Only made the discovery afterwards that our booking is still marked as pending in the Fork app - a technological barrier it seems as well! Ultimately would return for the food now we know what to expect of the experience.

Service could’ve been a bit better. Restaurant was empty and we still didn’t get enough attention. Food is quite pricey for what it is, can get similar dishes at other restaurants cheaper. They need to be more specific about what isn’t available on the menu anymore. Good food, but not the best.

Excellent wagyu beef. Calamari beautiful batter and tender but too salty. But too expensive. Tiny glass of wine (table next to us heard me query this and said they had same experience)
