Been here twice now, and both times I was very impressed. The range of the menu is good without being overwhelming, and the service was genuinely friendly. Will definitely go again at some point...in fact, we discovered this place after giving up on the nearby Loch Fyne!

You are always welcomed here to this little, atmospheric restaurant in the heart of Knowle and service is attentive although not personalized. The young waitresses handle the customers efficiently but would benefit from a little conversation beyond merely taking orders. Waiter Ovi, who regrettably only now serves occasionally, remains the expert in friendly banter and could teach these young ladies... More
