I came here as it was next to my hotel. Visually when you walk in it looks a nice restaurant. The staff are friendly also. That is where it ends. The food is dry with a bucket of salt thrown in. I could not even...More

The service was not great, the food was bland, tasteless and cold. Definitely not worth the money. However, had I visited the toilets before actually eating the food, I would have walked out. The toilets are absolutely disgusting, broken seats, no locks on doors and...More

Wish we had of read the reviews and taken the advice of other diners in avoiding this place. The food is terrible. Soggy, cold, tasteless, bland - to choose a few descriptive words. What was supposed to be chicken I could have thrown at the...More

It depends. Not if you are a couple or a smallish party. It's only fair to book if there are more than 6 of you as they may have to push some tables together.
