We arrived early, as we needed to keep an eye out for an old school chum and her husband, visiting from Australia.

Ordered three mains to share. A bit of wait in between entree and main. Food is delicious. Service needs to be improved. Only one waiter.

After a long day at the hospital a good meal was required. Friendly staff who were prompt in both taking our order and bring the food. The only let down was the slowness in bring the ordered drinks

What great food and service. Our waiter was really pleasant and charming. The starters were plenty big enough to share and good value for money. My main was the sweet and sour chicken and wow was it tasty. The sauce was rich and very smooth and the vegetables nicely cooked. All the mains were great and we would certainly recommend... More
