We have gone to Bang Bang several times over the last few years and it was one of our favourite restaurants. This time the food was extremely disappointing. I will excuse them given the challenges with COVID.

They have outstanding food and service. They made our celebratory night even more special because they knew. Service is personal yet professional. It’s one of my top 3 favourite restaurants

First time at Bang Bang after hearing good reviews from friends and so happy we decided to come here for our anniversary! Service was great and the food, even better. Popcorn cauliflower and eggplant rendang curry are a must try! Will come back again :)

In these days of infection control, dishes were served either without or not with enough serving spoons so we all ended up serving ourselves using cutlery we had been using to eat. Plates can be re-used for dishes but we do need extra napkins as lots of finger food.
Bathrooms were without toilet paper and dirty by the end of the night when should have been sparkling with frequent cleaning.
Drinks expensive- as usual - hence my lower stars for value.

The only thing wrong really is that one of us asked for no seafood and they promised a plate seperate which when he bit into was indeed seafood however apart from that everything else was amazing as always

We had a fantastic day, we were late and they were very accommodating. A little confusing with the menu and what we got being a 2 top but it was quickly sorted. Friendly service. Fresh as food and great atmosphere. We had super weather which helped. Would definitely come back any time, and recommend for a great value brunch,

Fantastic food - eggplant rendang was a highlight but unfortunately the kitchen and service were very slow.

We had to chase staff for updates rather than them being proactive. Little things like we had to continually ask for water and drinks was a little frustrating. Music was too loud for dinner conversation.

But I would still go back for the food.

We had a wonderful experience at Bang Bang for my birthday! It was mere days after the reopening of hospitality, and despite that, their incorporation of COVID-safe measures was seamless and invisible. Staff were warm and accomodating, and the food and cocktails were delicious. Can't wait to go back!
