Don't like to bag places when I get what I expect. Not my cup of Tea. Was dragged along for a family dinner. It serves a purpose, plenty of food at a good price. All the sauces were too sweet for me. I did like the Kids Spag Bol though.

Met up with family in the area and stopped here for lunch. Very good service, food was awesome and fresh. Looks very popular as lots of people there. The menu choices were great. Really enjoyed it and would definitely go again. They catered for kids and infants easily.
