We stopped at Lord's for dinner on our way to the airport. Unfortunately it had to be a rushed dinner but we would have loved to hang about longer. The atmosphere at Lord's is great, good music, friendly staff (GREAT with kids!), mouth-watering food. The owner Martin is so friendly and comes by to introduce himself to everyone, and children are invited to feed the fish (free of charge). Wish we had discovered this place earlier. Definitely recommend it. Note: the Mango Chicken curry is DIVINE.

All the compliments in other reviews are fully deserved. Everything was fantastic - decor, ambience, staff and most of all the food. My only (slight) reservation was the coffee, it was ok but having said that I’ve yet to get a great coffee in Asia. And nothing would distract me for giving Lords 5-stars. The curries were simply the best we have had anywhere.

Firstly I'd say the staff here were great, always very polite and useful. This place is super clean too, a rare gem across SL.

In my opinion I'd avoid the curry here, the other dishes were tastier. After two weeks in SL the curry here probably had the least flavour we tasted. Also unlike most places it only came with a very small portion of a side veg curry, most places provide at least three/four side curries. For almost double the price of other places this was disappointing.

The other dishes we had were very nice though. Deviled chicken was tasty and packed with flavour. Fish and chips were good, fish was very well cooked. Also had a portion of chicken noodles which were tasty and a good sized dish.

Overall a nice spot that'd I'd recommend.

What a cool place, such a great vibe with great styling and live music. Did not eat, only stopped in for a milkshake (was full moon so no alcohol being served anywhere for religious reasons). Would return for a few beers !
Free fish spa was a bit of a funny experience too!

Lovely cocktails and nice setting. One of the best bits is that they have a free fish spa so you can sit and have a fish spa will having some drinks. Great added bonus.
