Didn't make the restaurant on this occasion due to illness, but past experiences, whether sit-in or take-out have always been excellent. Good food and friendly, helpful service... On one particularly stressful day a free beer while I waited for my take-out order!

Absolutely fantastic experience- our first time there but definitely will not be our last ..... Just gutted we waited so long to try it. Excellent food & service. I'm struggling to say anything negative but in the interests of a balanced view - the ladies toilets were a little on the chilly side.

Lovely environment, attentive service, large portions and a cracking deal on the 5 course midweek deal. The mains however were a little bland for my tastes and that of some of the other guests in my party. As part of a five course special you perhaps don't expect the same quality, however, if that's a sample of the meals on the ala carte then they could have been better, and may well prevent me from returning.

On arriving our table for 6 was only set for 5 and although we said we would wait till everyone arrived before deciding on popadoms etc we were then given them. The 2 starters were ok but we waited so long for our main meals the restaurant was almost empty and the staff were moving tables about getting set up for their party night all very embarrassing . I also was given lamb instead of chicken and although it was changed it was very salty and lacked any spice even though it was meant to be medium hot. Maybe we were just unlucky but out of 6 meals only 1 was enjoyed.

Meal really nice however there was a lack of attention from the waiter serving at our table, at the end of the meal the waiter brought the bill without checking if we would like a desert or a drink, ie cup of tea/coffee, at the end of the meal.
