We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Everything was spot on from the friendly service to the advice about the men. the restaurant was busy but the waiters were attentive without being intrusive. The food was appetising and we had to admit defeat taking home a doggy bag! We will certainly be returning.

Very nice restaurant. Food service was excellent - our mains were out in good time and were really delicious. Reasonable prices too. Had some difficulty getting a taxi back - not the restaurants fault but do bear in mind if you need one!

Food was lovely as always. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. They looked after us and our little girl from start to finish, even gave her an ice cream at the end. Would recommend to anyone, one of my favourite restaurants!

Brilliant staff and very well presented eating areas, if you like your food spicy I’d suggest mentioning it when you order as both our dishes were missing the heat we expected. But I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
