Fantastic food and service. Excellent value for money and option of BYOB.
Had a lovely meal at Abida with family. They accommodated seven of us, including our two year old grandson, at short notice. Food was excellent, both Indian and Thai menu chosen from by the party. Staff pleasant and attentive. Will go back soon.
Fabulous food. One main course and a selection from the Tapas menu went down very well. Breads and rice also very good. Very enjoyable. Staff pleasent and attentive.
