Restaurant close to hotel i was staying in. Walked in and was quite busy but they still found us a table. Very friendly staff. Food was excellent. All was very fresh, hot and tasty. Good value for money too. Will come back to this restaurant for sure when back in the area.

Had a meeting to attend in Manchester and a colleague suggested we eat here for lunch. As a lover of mediterranean food, this place ticked all the boxes. The choice and quality of food was amazing and the all you can eat buffet for £7.90 is fab value for money. Would definitely recommend this place.

I bought a Groupon meal for two for £30 which was a great deal. I have been a few times to this restaurant. On a weekend they have a live band and a belly dancer which is great fun. The food is really nice and always presented very well. Thanks for a great night.

A group of ladies went for my sisters birthday and the reason we chose this was because we could stay all night for the entertainment and we wasn't disappointed !!, we chose the 19.99 set menu and the food was Fab, very fresh and very hot and tasty ( garlic mushrooms and chicken casserole), the room seems a tad small...
