A great oriental restaurant to go for if you want good food and you want it quick. It has a similar feel to the Wagamama restaurants. I liked the open kitchen which formed part of the dining area and this restaurant had friendly staff.
The Pad Thai noodles were nice although they would have been better if more vegetables had been in the dish. We really enjoyed the sweet corn cakes- very moreish. The vegetable dumplings were good too. They were not like the usual dim sum style dumplings; they reminded me more of Italian ravioli. The raw juice was a refreshing drink to accompany the meal.
