Worthy of a 5 star review and will be returning with friends. We had a total of 6 dishes between us and ALL of them I will be ordering again.

Excellent service. Our group had different dietary requirements which were diligently catered to by waiting and kitchen staff. I shared a steak with my pregnant friend and it was somehow made well done on one half and medium on the other so we could easily split it. Attention to detail made this a great dining experience.

Atmosphere was nice, service professional, food poor. We had the chef's tasting menu, several courses of which were not worth finishing. We had previously dined at the location when it was BKK and had expectations set for a great all-round experience, but it was very disappointing.

The space is fantastic and suggests a NYC vibe, another incarnation of the location but I think it will be popular, unassuming, non pretentious but has class and the ambiance cool. Just a hop skip and jump from Chapel Street and in the coolest street in Windsor.

We had a lovely evening. Cocktail delicious, service friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the chefs tasting plates, fantastic tastes and value. We will be back. Love that you don't have to do early or late sessions, 715 reservation time perfect!!

Delicious food and the menu has a lot of fresh variations that we had never tried.
Our favourite was the cod row and the duck!
Great wine list also.

Great food. I read a critical review in the press which I totally disagree with. How dare these critics write so disparagingly about a restaurant which has been launched with great style, ambience, decor, service and especially food. One of my party was vego and the other didn’t eat fish, but no problem, the menu covered both people. I ate crab custard and main course was duck leg. Super. Get along before the word gets out. I am totally independent and eat out a lot especially trying all the new places.

Very disappointed with food. We have been told it’s designed to share. Between 3 of us we had 1 starter each, 1 medium dish and 2 mains and side dish. The mains are definitely not designed to share. I would be even hungry if I have it for myself. Side dish potatoes were not season and under cooked and prawn for starter and fish as main did not taste fresh.
What a let down!

A welcome change to Windsor’s restaurant scene. Food and service top notch! Quail is a must.. sophisticated yet super cosy space to settle in!

Completely un-faultable

Each dish was carefully thought about, beautifully balanced and continuing with the slight hint of an asian influence.

We ordered the set menu and there was nothing through the entire course that were disappointed with. Highly recommend.

A sensational experience. A creative cocktail list executed perfectly. The menu is outstanding and the staff were excellent at guiding our food selection around our preferences, and with respect to menu design and a culinary journey. Our wine choices were similarly guided to suit our degustation. A beautiful venue with great attention to detail all round. We enjoyed a relaxed vibe of a weekday but I look forward to attending again in the bustle of a weekend where the whole space will really come alive.

We were very loyal aand regular customers of Saigon Sally and never had a bad meal and loved the spicy selection, the ambience, the staff, and overall good value.

Alter' food was frankly forgettable and that is why we were disappointed - staff very courteous and attentive and the usual great ambience - but a good restaurant must have good food and then the rest works. The prwans in particular were bland, tough and expensive. The artichoke salad not as good as we had hoped.

Hope this helps - we would love to see you succeed as we live within easy walking distance.

Regards Michael and Kathryn
