The food is very good and the staff are very friendly. The only criticism I have is there are too many tables in the restaurant.

We popped into this restaurant on the spur of the moment. First impressions were it looked lovely, we were seated straight away by a super friendly waitress. Food was great, only thing that let it down was a bit of a bland prawn cocktail, husband thoroughly enjoyed his tart starter.

Celebrated our daughters 21 birthday here on Saturday. Our eldest daughter lives in Sutton and said it's a must place to go. She was right! Excellent food, service, atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you to everyone for making this such a special evening.

We came here with my family for my birthday. Everyone was blow away with the place, the atmosphere was so relaxing, decor was superb and choice of food was amazing!

Atmosphere , decor, service and food is excellent. But I wish they would vary the menu, even have a specials board. After several visits the menu is the same as the day they opened the restaurant. The other two restaurants in their chain have the same menu too!
