Love Spanish food but great to return to Asian food for a change. Everything fresh and veg dominated including veg tempura, octopus with poached egg!, pad Thai. Nice Rioja list and modest price for a great bottle. So, so service

Decor is glitzy, food is mediocre, service is awful. Party of four were served with cold food on ad ad-hoc basis, one main course arriving cold after the other three diners had finished theirs. A complaint to the waiter evinced little sympathy with a grudging...More
