TERMS & CONDITIONS
We cater for all standard dietary requirements, e.g. vegetarians receive a completely separate banquet at the same charge per person. As a general rule of thumb, the more notice we have, the better the experience for our guests, however, due to the preparation of dishes and some imported ingredients we cannot completely guarantee dishes are free from allergens such as (but not limited to) traces of nuts, gluten or shellfish products.
Please note that as our menu is heavily Asian-influenced, we regret we cannot accommodate any dietary requirements relating to staple Asian ingredients (e.g. chilli, lemongrass, coriander etc). These are usually included in all base sauces, marinades, dressings and condiments, and are difficult to exclude from most dishes. Severely dietary restricted orders may therefore only receive one dish at a reduced cost depending on the severity of the restriction.
For all groups of 12 or more a Banquet selection is compulsory. The entire party must participate in the Banquet. In other words, you cannot have part of the table on a la carte and part of the table on banquet. Please note: All menu items are subject to change due to seasonal availability.
Children under 12 will receive a half price banquet. Children under 4 incur no charge.
We do not allow any BYO of any food or drink (with the exception of religious food or very specific dietary requirements). Exceptions to this rule are of course BYO specific periods which are specifically defined, and usually exclude large groups or private/semi-private bookings.
