Still unsure whether to give this restaurant a 3 or 4 but as the food quality is so good I guess a 4 is what I'll opt for. I have been here 3 times in total, yesterday my third. Once was for lunch and twice for a birthday meal in the private room. RESTAURANT: The restaurant is very clean and... More

Visited on a Saturday evening. We usually eat here for their lunch time menu which never disappoints. However, as soon as all their tables are full they take a very long time to deliver food and we heard at least 3 people complain while we were there. Some food was brought out cold, requests for bills were ignored, and an... More

This restaurant is one I have regularly visited it has a relaxed atmosphere and amazing food to match. It has lots of options for both vegetarians and meat eaters so it is great if you are in a mixed group.

Visited on a Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy but nevertheless we received prompt service throughout the evening. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu is quite extensive and, although not very exciting, is very well cooked. Portion sizes were good. The wine list was reasonably priced.

In a nutshell: Decor is colourful with modern vibrancy, furniture matches the theme and spacious between each other. Restaurant is fairly big and has private room for hire. Food is wonderfully generous, pleasing to the eyes and just as pleasing on the tastebuds. Bill was very fair and always leave a tip as the service, we felt very catered to.... More

We popped in for lunch as it used to be nice, quick and reasonably priced. However today, service was slow and the food questionable. I sat and watched my 15 month old grand daughters lunch given to another table , watched the guests tuck in. I asked why is my granddaughters food. The waiter looked blankly at me. Then only...
