This is one of our favourite restaurants. A surprise this time with new menu. A Turkish menu with most things I had not tried before. No worries though, food was excellent and service as always first class. Looking forward to going again and working our way through the menu.

Have been here a couple of times. Once for lunch and once for an evening meal. Both times food has been good, nothing exceptional but well worth the money. Staff and ambience good. Give it a go!

This is over priced and tries to serve posh food, which doesn't really work in there for some reason. Staff friendly and easy to walk to.

Myself and other half booked this restaurant last minute on a whim and was the best choice we made in a long time. Excellent food and lovely staff. Would definitely come back again.
