Food was excellent. Service was great, Katie is to be commended. We were seated quickly and whilst it was busy, we weren't left for too long at any point during the meal. The route to the toilets is a bit awkward but these were clean and well-maintained.

I found the servers welcoming & friendly. I would definitely go again & recommend to friends. I must say I found it slightly chilly ad we were seated near the air conditioner, however, we were moved when asked if tjis was possible. The music choices were excellent.

Amazing food, a very nice waitress who was very helpful and in particular their Cau Girl Martini is splendid, truly tastes like Passion Fruit. Must say this is my favorite restaurant in Reading.
