Very poor service. Staff are very rude, not even giving service water.

Easy to book a table online. Easter Sunday the place was buzzing, great to see people back at Darling Harbour. Food was great as always and cocktails too.

The music was way too loud, and songs selections were poor. Came for a good night but had a worst. Also, Dance floor was tiny. On top of that, Securities were extremely rude. Such a disappointment and never coming back.

Hi Lucas, we welcome all feedback so thank you for letting us know the music wasn't to your taste - feel free to pop us over an email with any suggested music for your next visit. Unfortunately with the COVID restrictions at 1 per 2 square metres, although we are excited to be able to allow dancing now, we are still limited with the venue to about 50% of our normal capacity. We are happy to discuss your experience further if you would like to email us. Alice / on behalf of WS

There was a mix up with the seating arrangement, where they tried to seat my part (of 25, for dinner) in a lounge area with small coffee tables even though I had requested and confirmed a outdoor, water view table. Thankfully they were able to sort it out so that we had an outside table, however the party was split across two tables which made it difficult to socialise. The food was good, I got the Buddha bowl and didn’t receive any sweet potato, though everyone else who got the Buddha bowl did so it must’ve just been an oversight. Music get really loud after 9pm, which is way too early if you’re looking to have dinner and a conversation.

Hi Rachel, thanks so much for your honest feedback. We are sorry to hear about the mix up but glad it was resolved quickly. If you're looking for a quieter vibe next time, our DJs are only there on Friday & Saturday nights from 9pm :) we look forward to welcoming you back again soon
