Novelty and price over quality. The hot pla...
Reviewed 11 months, 25 days ago

"Novelty and price over quality. The hot plate table cooking is an underperforming novelty, the kitchen cooking was disappointing and the price was very high, to add insult to injury. Very disappointing experience. We decided to indulge in the priciest option, the mixed seafood hot plate at £44 for two. The produce was merely average, and the plate didn’t really seem hot enough to properly sear and quick cook the food. The baby octopus for eg became so rubbery and remained slimy so my friend simply left them. We also ordered a seafood stew from the kitchen - thin, but worst of all quite flavourless and bland. With a small number of beers and a side and shared starter, we paid £100+ - abysmal given what we’d eaten. Feels like this place has been left far behind by the myriad other much better and better value other Asian options in Soho and Noho."
