Had ginger blast smoothie, chicken katsu noodles. 1. Starter and food took forever to arrive. 2. Ginger blast was most head instead of juice. 3. Chicken katsu was moist but meat and noodles were bland and not seasoned at all. It was a TGIF experience at posh prices.more

We came here as a group of 30 people (team lunch) and the food came out really, really quickly.

Also, everyone seemed to be happy with their meal choices so it is another plus.
I'm giving them 4 stars...more
