Went with a Dimmi redemption voucher which gave us $20 off the bill. Food was good in particular the Wontons in chilli oil and the Shao Long Bao. Peking duck was rather average. Overall nice Sunday lunch.

Jen dined on Fri, 13th Apr 2018 (9)

Overall great experience, lovely food, atmosphere, service. Not so great: white bait in the fritto misto wasn't very fresh, waiter didn't know the gelati flavours and served flavours we didn't ask for without double-checked. Nevertheless would come back.

Thank you. I finally got to try the suckling pig. YUM!!! With regards to desserts, the volcan chocolate cake would go so well with the coconut sorbet and the pineapple. Didn't like the quince malbec ice cream. Overall great fresh and tasty food.

Had a lovely meal last night. Service is generally good, last night it was a tad better, thank you. I used to go more often, but with the new menu (and no specials), it's not the same anymore since I've nearly tried every item.

Fox In The Box

Brighton

Jen dined on Sat, 30th Jan 2016 (5)

Slow service, items we wanted from the menu weren't available on a Saturday morning. Food rather average. If you've got specific dietary requirements, yes go there, otherwise maybe not. Also dislike the fact of a different treatment for people using a voucher. Stop offering vouchers if you aren't willing to showcase what you'd get as a 'fully' paying customer. Our meals were smaller than the other table with exactly the same dish.

True South

Black Rock

Jen dined on Fri, 29th Jan 2016 (9)

I still love True South, although the experience wasn't as great as the other many times and this time it happened to be that I booked for work. I wanted my colleagues to try the popular beer wheel with a choice of 5 craft beer, unfortunately the selection of craft beer disappeared. Service was pretty slow, despite the fact that there was plenty of staff around. I've always experienced True South service as very attentive, but I also had to ask for water to start with (at the beginning and in between). Ordered food and some got forgotten. Not sure exactly what has happened, but please work on your service. Also don't pull dishes away without asking if we've finished. Don't just serve a pint of beer, ask for the size (pot or pint) some people have to drive. The chocolate fondant cake is great, but not with the banana and caramel ice cream (btw. your menu on the website as well as at the front door states chestnut ice cream). The banana caramel ice cream is the least favourite I've had at True South. Overall, food is great and the ambience is great, too.
