Where do I start with the quality of the food? First of all, they couldn't tell the difference between tomato ketchup and chilli sauce, and they're a takeaway restaurant? Pathetic! Secondly when you order a chicken and mushroom pizza with extra jalapeños, you'd expect a pizza with chicken, mushroom and jalapeños on there right? Not with this place, you get... More

Been going to this place for years. The only thing I get is the T-bone steak and chips. Though others have told me the steak is not consistent. I disagree. Possibly the best in town and have never been disappointed. Good size steak and always add a couple of extras fried onions and chips... Cheesy. Greasy but it goes down... More

Steak was chewey and tasteless to the point where even a jug full of ketchup couldn't save it!! With so many other places on Evington Road, you'd do well to avoid this one

Came here with friends and was looked after immediately by the friendly staff. Ordered Lamb Chops, Chicken Strips, Steak Platter and finally the famous T Bone steak. After giving the order we waited with excitement and enthusiasm n boy we weren't disappointed. Lambs chops were juicy chicken strips were succulent, steak platter was top notch but the t bone steak... More

I was recommended by a friend to try steak at this place. But I already had a steak that day. So I decided to try something else, recommended by their staff. very disappointed from the 1st bite. It was as if they poured a bit of diesel in the sauce. Afraid to go back to try the steak again

Probably the best place in Leicester for real grilled food. Ordered chicken strips and steak, both were cooked to perfection! While you wait you can see your food being cooked on the grill. Food is perfect everytime. The service is bang on, friendly energetic staff. I would however advise to order by phone in advance because it is very popular

I've been to this place several times now and on one occasion specifically travelled from Birmingham to eat here. The steaks are really good and are done to your preference. The sauces are nice and not watered down like a lot of places. Can take a bit of time when you order but that is because so many people order... More
