Second visit to this restaurant - food every bit as good as before. Special mention for the soft shell crabs and the sea bass - delicious! Very reasonable too ( a full blow out for 4 people for £72) and excellent service. BYO drink also helps keep the price down, and there's a Sainsburys a few doors down to get your wine.
Food's good and there is always a very friendly atmosphere, I enjoy this place every time. The staff seem to be very patience even when you are a big group of people. Will go again.
The service was excellent from the moment we entered the restaurant and the food was fresh and delicious. The prices were very reasonable and we will come again as soon as our waist line permits.
