    We had a table of 9 for a birthday. The food was excellent and didn't take long. The staff were very attentive and helpful with the menu. They even gave a surprise birthday cake slice at the end. The food is worth the price.

    The biggest issue with this restaurant for me is the lack of ventilation. I dined here on Saturday 14th Jan and Thursday 19th Jan and both times the lack of ventilation really let's this place down. You will smell of burned Chinese oil for the night so if you decide to come here, make sure you're going home afterwards. I get it, it's the type of food but there are plenty of places that cook this type of food in an open kitchen where the ventilation is much better.

    We are both vegetarian and were very impressed with the significant vegan menu on offer. It was great to have a number of options and they were really great dishes. The bubble tea is also worth trying! The staff were excellent and we will definitely recommend Ré Nao to friends!

    Starters were lovely delish but mains left it down.. 2 of us ate chicken satay and it was only ok. The colour of the sauce was pink which was a turn off. One piece of green pepper and a few onions were the only veg.. on the plus side the portion was huge if one was able to eat it all. Other party had green Thai curry with again was only ok.sauce was extremely thick and more like a heavy soup consistency. I have to compliment the cocktails though, they were amazing!

    It was nice time there . I found the the table very small for 2 people, and there was not so much space between tables, the other guest was too close and kids very all over it was a bit annoying... otherwise food was excellent, very fast service. Recommended A++

    They did not have have booking on their system when we arrived but it was fine because they was a table free. My husband ordered a vegan meal but was brought a meal with chicken. It was taken back to the kitchen and then brought back quickly. He was sick when he got home though. I think there may have been traces of the chicken still on the plate as they probably just took off the chicken and brought back the same bowl. This was very disappointing.
