A really warm welcome and amazing food. Could not have had enough attention. When we came in it was quiet at 6.30pm and by 7pm it was nearly full. Cannot recommend highly enough. Would love to come again.

Highly recommend this excellent restaurant! We had a beautiful meal last night, staff are welcoming and attentive and the owner Benny ensures that everything is perfect. Great central location, looking forward to going back soon.

Cracking food selection from Benny on a platter style service. Best restaurant on the Dublin road for a group meal and always made to feel very welcome. Will be back again for sure.
