    Was a casual lunch once we got used to the lighting all good but they need to do something about the step as you come in the front door as your eyes do notadjust quickly enough to avoid tripping on the step

    We were a table of 8 on a Saturday night. Really liked how spacious the place is. We were not close to other tables meaning we could hear each other and sit comfortably. Nice aesthetic. The servers were polite and we enjoyed the food very much!

    Great service and food. But kicked out after 2 hours and then a waiter made a very sexist comment as we were paying for our drinks. Not brilliant.

    Staff were really confusing. We got told different things by each staff in terms of rules with service charges and how we could pay as a group (tab charge). At first we were denied going to the bar because we had to pay a service charge for table service but the waitress that was serving us was rude and incompetent. She came to our table, rolled her eyes at us. Couldn't answer any of our questions about drinks. When you're paying a service charge, there should be some competence and politeness from staff.

    Gorgeous underground space. The food was ok, wouldn’t rave but if you’re looking for great dumplings there are better elsewhere. Cocktails were amazing. The service was average we waited a long time to get served we had to yell out to get attention eventually and things kept being forgotten like cutlery. Great vibe for some drinks with friends but wouldn’t go there for dinner.

    Love Uncle Ming’s! Our last visit was underwhelming however - table arrives was slow to non existent and wait in food and drinks was long - one of the bartenders had so much attitude which was disappointing considering what a great time we’ve had there previously. Our group of 12 had booked weeks in advance and would have loved to have spent at least double what we did but were only seen 4 times by wait staff over the course of our 4 hour booking

    As a lover of whisky and dumplings, what a better combination of the two! Worth a visit. We ordered one of every dumpling, which was a pricey feast, but would totally recommend! Our favourite was the dim-sum.

    Booked for a friend’s birthday. Ordered desert and asked manager to bring it with the candle as we are celebrating birthday. Everything was arranged and time discussed. 15 min later desert was just placed on the table without candle without anything. What’s the point to book birthday celebration if your staff is incompetent that much. Spoke to the manager and was promised another cake will be arranged with the candle. After waiting for another 20 min - nothing arrived. Very poor experience. Even sharing this experience with the waitress upon settling the bill - I haven’t heard any apologies. Do not promise anything to your costumers if you are capable to do it. Hire someone who is capable to handle customer’s complaints.
