I have been here many times. The customer service and food have been incredible. My mother once followed a vegan diet and the owner recognised her on her return and came straight to give her vegan options. Would always recommend.

I'm not sure how much involvement Stephen and Dwayne have in the day to day running of this restaurant. I know that Rob Williams of WRW who was heavily involved at some time now has virtually nothing to do with it. If you... More
