Beautiful decor, feeling like you're far away from Tunbridge Wells. We went for a late lunch so a relaxing atmosphere, fast service and gorgeous food. Reasonably priced. I would book a table here in the evenings to save disappointment as I imagine it gets busy!

A favourite for lunch. The small lunchtime menu is reasonably priced and the dishes absolutely delicious. The salt and pepper squid is a must.

Tried calling numerous times over the course of an hour to order a takeaway (which is offered on the website) but there was no answer. I appreciate the restaurant may have been busy but it would have taken 30 seconds to pick the phone up...More

This place is awesome. Every dish I've ever tasted has been so delicious and it caters well for gluten-free diners such as myself. The service is great, there's a great ambience, you couldn't ask for more.

The giggling squid reviews on trip advisor were very good so we decided to pop in for a quick bite before the theatre. The restaurant decor is very nice and the service was very good and friendly. My wife had the cashew stir fry and...More

Hi, Thank you very much for your comment about the lovely unique flavour in sea bass pad cha. It is my all time favourite! It's not a secret and I'm happy to tell you that the special ingredient is quite similar to ginger... More
