Food was incredible. But our table projection was very blurry and one of our 'mouse tracker things' didnt work and when asked for another one they ignored it and did nothing even after second time of asking. But over all was nice.

Restaurant needed a good clean, floors were very dirty including tables, most all the toilets were a disgrace!

Food was ok, but very expensive for what it was

Table was booked for 3.30 unfortunately table not ready. Was directed to bar area with no available seating and no bar staff to serve. Waited along time for bar staff to arrive to be served and was then asked to move from standing at the bar due to private party. Very noisy area and flickering lights due to the bass from speaker.
Was seated at 4pm, waitress talked us through how to order. Was very helpful.

Placed our order and was disappointed that the food was not served all at once. The noodles was cold and the chicken won ton arrived 50 minutes after ordering. The chicken wings and seared salmon was very tasty.

Waiter arrived with the bill although we did not ask for it. Which meant he then had to check to see if we could order desert. Desert was pricey for what we received but was enjoyable.

This place was let down due to the noise, cold food, being rushed to leave and the state of the ladies toilets which had water bubbling out of the drain when the toilet was flushed. No attempt was made to clean the over flowing bin or mopping up the floor.

This was our first time experience, which we received as a gift. Would be try again yes but not Covent Garden.

Food quality was fantastic. Chicken wings, spicy aubergine, sweet chilli prawns deserve a special mention. However, WAY WAY overpriced. £16.95 for vegetable noodles barely enough to feed 2 people as an accompaniment - come on! ipads and interactive table games a nice touch - but please clean the ipads regularly - super sticky and hard to scroll. Also one of the table 'mice' wasnt working. for the games. Service interactions few and far between because of the ipads - so service from staff at times glum and no eye contact.

Venue needs to smarten up, its got a bit complacent - needs to feel smart, slick, clean, polished to even attempt to justify the high prices - everything just felt a little tired, unloved, and that the welcome / waiting staff didn't really care. In summary - must try harder to make the ambience and experience as special as the food.

Not what it used to be. Very poor service. When we arrived the host had to try and call the waitress several times to ask her to take us to our table (she was standing 2m away chatting to other staff). The waitress seemed annoyed that her conversation with other severs had been interrupted and walked us through the restaurant and just pointed to a table for us to sit and walked away. She didn’t say anything, just left us with a turned off IPad. We have previously been to INAMO so knew that the restaurant takes order via the iPad so we booted up the device and start navigating through the menus. At no point during our visit did the waitress provide the little hand held clickers needed to use to interactive tables or explain that the tables are interactive. We found clickers left at a neighbouring table and figured it out for ourselves. We visited a couple of years ago and the service was far better with explanations of the restaurant ordering process and interactive tables.

We assumed the unique ‘interactive’ style of the restaurant is how they justify £17 for a plate of noodles with veg given the food is OK at best. Now that that the service is so poor, we don’t think they can justify the price AND adding service charge!

A nice novel idea but now a bit dated and food is hit and miss depending on the dishes you select

£50 a-head (after service added) for mediocre and limited all-you-can-eat menu with some dishes cooked well and others very poor. Loud music and very bright lights with digital tables might suit some better than others. Overall, quite fun experience that I won’t bother to repeat - there’s better out there at that price.
