This small intimate eatery never fails to impress. Have been here several times and not once has the food been anything less than excellent, as is the friendly service. I would and do, recommend this to anyone. If you haven't been yet, put it on your "to do" list for 2017

My husband and I booked for an early dinner on New Years Eve. Strange, tatty interior and equally strange menu. Overpriced and can't decide whether it's English or Cambodian. Disappointing meal, little atmosphere as only one other couple dining. Loud conversation coming from the kitchen. When we checked 'Scores on the Doors' after our meal we discovered that they only...

We are sorry you were disappointed with your New Year's Eve dinner, which was a special menu and more expensive than our normal range. You came to the early evening sitting. The restaurant was fully booked in advance for the later sitting and the atmosphere was much more lively then. As we try to cater for a wide variety of... More

6 members of our family were celebrating a birthday and we had a good time the staff were helpful and polite. The food was delicious my only small complaint was the fact it was noisy but it is party time so fair enough.Overall I strongly reccomend visiting this restaurant.

First time visit, wife booked for us and friends, turned up to be told they were on Christmas menu, we explained that when we booked a month earlier this wasn't mentioned and the couple we were dining with had looked at the normal menu and made their choice already, having seen the xmas menu, they still preferred their original option....

Not quite certain how to describe this restaurant. The kitchen definately needs an upgraded extraction system, too many kitchen cooking smells heading for the dining area. The back room may not suffer from this problem, but my wife complained of her hair smelling from the cooking as we walked back to the car. I had the pan fried turkey which... More

This restaurant is hidden from general view in the Market Place in Bungay. It's a very quirky building and very cosy. The food was very very good and very reasonably priced. The lady chef produces some very tasty meals, we had a starter and main course each and they all tasted very freshly prepared, this place is well worth a... More

I came here after stopping in the area for work, and I wasn't disappointed. The food has an Asian flair although there are some English dishes. The Teriyaki was amazing and just the right portion size. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also lovely. The service is friendly and welcoming. The table next to me had several of the other...
