Lovely place to have a fun date. The interactive table is a cool idea while you waiting for food.

Food was terrible and inauthentic - rushed out so that you are pressured to buy even more of the outrageously overpriced, clearly just-microwaved, rubbish. Menu thrown together, with no advice on what should be paired with what. Did not have any waiters to ask advice for pairings, of course, as they refuse to even meet eye contact. No “service” to review as all orders are completed on an ipad, while waiters rush away and refuse to linger at your table for more than a second. Was not once asked how our meal was, and yet expected to pay compulsory service charge. Very confusing stuff. Ridiculous fad for not very clever people who are fooled into thinking this is authentic Asian cooking. Not satisfactory at all, and will certainly NOT be returning to this scam of a restaurant.

The location is really cool and I like the digital way who includes all features on the table. Unfortunately the food was ok and for the quality a bit overpriced

But for a funny night with friends a very good option

Incredibly expensive food, poor quality and long waiting times for food to arrive. If you don’t pay more than £40 each for the unlimited deal then it is very poor value indeed. Interactive table was fun however certainly not worth the inflated prices as a result. Will not be coming back again.

When we booked the table there was no information that only valentines menu applies. After we got seated we were offered extremely expensive menu per person only! Without any regulation how it should apply. The stuff was clumsy and the table was dirty for more than 1.5 hour. I’m still not sure how it should work because we were given 2x appetizer? 55£ per person was not worth it. I tried to talk to the manager, but impudent waiter allegedly said that he is the manager. Definitely not recommending to anyone! On the open table website there was no information about the Valentine’s menu and also exceptions to theatre menu were listed like Christmas Eve but no mention of Valentine’s Day.

Sorry to hear that you feel that the valentines menu was not shared previously. In fact our Reservations team rang every guest to share this when we confirmed your table and our valentines menu was on line with messaging since December. Sorry you did not have an enjoyable experience with us.

1. Terrible food
2. Next to no service (given it’s an interactive experience you order from an iPad and the only interaction you have is the waiters bringing food/drinks to your table) yet you still get charged a hefty 13.5% service charge.
3. Ambience. If your idea of a great restaurant ambience is neon lights and techno/house music as if you’re in a rave at 4am then great, otherwise it is a very bizarre eating experience.
4. Terribly expensive and the food (again) was really quite terrible. If it says “spicy” it really means that it is swimming in a super sweet chilli sauce and most of the dishes taste the same!

...really not worth the money. We actually had to go somewhere else after sharing 3 dishes because the food was so terrible and we were still hungry.

Everything was nice, really cool tables and concept. However, the prices are outrageous for what you’re getting, they need to bring it down slightly, with a big hefty service charge slapped on top should also be removed. The money I spent on food (£100) would have cost me around £30 in “Yo Sushi”

Not impressed.
The interactive tables are a distracting gimmick - provides 10 mins of a wow factor but very quickly become more of an annoyance.
Ordered the chef taster menu...The food started off ok but progressively got more disappointing. Quality not really reflected by the £45pp cover charge. Best dish was the gyozas but the bad dishes outweighed this - Had a very large, salty plate of mushrooms, burnt lamb & chicken skewers and a disappointing dessert. Also please rethink your ‘ceviche’ dish as this has no resemblance of real ceviche.
Service was not very strong even though we ate on a quiet Tuesday night. Requested drinks refills several time’s but felt we were left unattended. Dishes just dropped down with no real flare, enthusiasm or interest. No plates, no cutlery given. Table ended up just being covered in drops of sauce and smears of food.
Wouldn’t recommend or visit again.

When we arrived we were immediately made aware we could take no longer than an hour. The cocktails were very small for the price and the Prosecco and lemonade was flat. We asked for lemon in the water none provided. Halloumi was solid, we couldn’t eat it; it was like Marble. Cost was very expensive for what it was. Wouldn’t recommend for a catch up as you could barely hear yourself never mind anyone else.

We were quite a large group of people so expected the bill to be all together but it was split per table. Made it very difficult to manage it at the end! The portions although they were tapas were very expensive for what they were, and the service charge was a bit outrageous considering that we ordered everything from the table our selves! Over-all was a bit disappointed as I have been to other branches of the restaurant and enjoyed it far better.

Thanks for the feedback Sach - we take all feedback seriously and this will be discussed with the restaurant Team, although as we share to a number of our guests - service charge is mandatory for tables over 6 - after all service charge is not just a charge that is levied for a maitre de or head waiter to take an order. Sorry to learn that Covent Garden didn't live up to the sister branches for you
