We had a booking for a bottomless brunch over the weekend. Unfortunately, my guest and I were quite late due to an unexpected emergency. The staff working were super understanding and although we missed brunch, were able to come up with a great alternative which we were really happy with. The two waiters (the guy from Algeria and the guy from Poland) were great - extremely friendly and helpful, and never let out glasses go empty. A big thank you to the team for looking after us, and a strong recommendation for anyone looking for a great day out this summer!

Came here for a Xmas after-party. As someone used to going to "common" nightclubs, this more exclusive venue proved a much better night out. Interior is lovely - certainly no sticky floors in this club! Sparklers give you a great experience whilst your drinks are served to your table by the bartenders. Bathrooms are generally clean, and lotion is provided so you can moisturise your hands after washing them. The DJ was fantastic. Liked the R&B genre, as well as the fact that the songs weren't heavily remixed. I just wish I'd taken more photos! Thanks Mahiki for a super Christmas night out!

We celebrated here for a close friends 21st birthday, great place to cater for groups of all sizes (there were 13 of us across two big tables). We booked the brunch which was lovely, lots of little dishes that were brought out including edamame beans, various tacos, ceviches and more. The brunch is £65 and includes the food and a cocktail called ciroc skin vision which was one of the nicest cocktails I’ve ever had. All other drinks do need to be bought separately so can lead to it being expensive but as this was for a big celebration it was insignificat. The atmosphere was extremely lively which was so refreshing as restaurants haven’t been able to do this due to restrictions. Staff were attentive and friendly, overall a great brunch!
