Service was impeccable staff were more than helpful with ordering you could tell they loved their job. I was unable to rate this place as much I would have liked as my daughter was served and ate completely raw chicken ( not under done, raw.) she didn’t notice as the lighting hindered her ability to see the food. Staff were apologetic and her meal was given for free. The rest of the food was great. We still left with a worry, hopefully she doesn’t get sick.

My family and I only had a short time to have dinner before seeing a show. The staff were wonderful, ensuring we had all our food in time even though it was a busy night for them. Would definitely recommend SOS!

Had to wait for our table as previous diners were reluctant to leave, but staff were very apologetic and it wasn't a huge issue. I was on the end of our table for 7 and near the door so I was very cold all night as the door was continually opened and held open for long periods. I realise this couldn't be helped, and I shouldn't complain but it did spoil the night a bit for me :) My daughter, whose birthday we were celebrating, really enjoyed her night, so Thank You

We made a booking at 5:30pm for an early dinner as we were going to a show. We were sitting outside and unfortunately for us it felt like the outside tables were not attended too. We could see waiters inside chatting while we were outside waiting for service. It took over 20mins for our drinks and food order to be taken. When ordering many meals on the menu were not available (chicken skewers, chicken Spring Rolls) which was disappointing. Due to this we ordered the mains and sides including the salad, due to the menu stating it came with sesame crackers. Our mains however did not come out until 6:50pm and only after having to walk into the restaurant from outside, to follow up on our food and to potentially cancel our order as we were in danger of missing our show. Our food did then come out however the salad did not come with sesame crackers. We asked the waiter about this and were informed the menu we ordered off (the menu which was handed to us) was old and the meal no longer came with sesame crackers. We would not have ordered this if we knew this at the start. We rushed eating our meal, paid and then had to run to our show, due to not leaving until after 7pm. Unfortunately the good food and friendly waiters when getting served does not make up for the bad service. We will not be coming back.

The chicken in the chicken curry was one biggish lump and as a share dish was really difficult to eat - especially without a knife to cut it up with... The beef in the stir fry was large and chewy and again without a knife ended up with a big mouthful that left you chewing for 10 mins. Service and staff were lovely but very disappointed on the food this time around. Sad

Ambiance was enjoyable, cool, relaxed vibe. Service was poor, we were served the wrong drink, struggled to get attention, took 10minutes to replace the wrong drink, not many checkins or water re filling, finished eating and dishes left on our table for another 30mins while 5 staff did dishes and cleaned.
