Had a quick bite in the upstairs part one evening & it was delicious! Thai green veg curry! One of best I've tasted! Beautifully presented too. Service was friendly, efficient & there's a lovely relaxed, homely vibe there! Great menu & reasonably priced. Huge place with lots of nooks & crannies. I'll def be back!

Chicken n Stuffing toasted with Mushroom soup....sounds simple ?...but this was the best Combo I've had in years. There was an extensive Lunch Menu , so it was great to get something simple done to perfection...Well done !!

I fail to see why this place is so popular. The food was ok, service was ok. They do everything reasonably well but no part of the experience was outstanding.
