I visited this restaurant for the first time this week. The food was tasty but I wouldn't say it was extra special. There was not a huge amount of meat in the curry either. It is a nice cosy setting though and the service was...More

Despite a major overhaul on the menu, this place never fails to impress. Punchy bold flavours, healthy options and cheap in reality. Keep up the good work.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who spends half is life in Bangkok. We went last night and were thoroughly impressed. Subtle flavours and perfectly cooked food. We will definitely be going again and are recommending Finalé to all our friends.

Overpriced, food was very bland. Can't even say it's average, tasted like everything was from a jar. Seafood was frozen and chewy, £31 for 4 jumbo king prawns...... Never again!!
