This is the first time I have been here. I had to ask for a glass for my beer. The prices were higher than the menu online and the staff were not that attentive. The food was tasty and there was plenty of it. This has the potential to be an excellent restaurant, it just needs more customer focus.
Amazing customer service, the food was great and the atmosphere was loving - first time coming to restaurant with my partner and I’ll surely be coming back soon x
Great food, ample portions, good value and the service was excellent too. 2nd time here and I'm pretty sure we'll be back. Hummus was particualrly good.
