Went to Restaurant 88 for my sisters birthday and it was the best night we have had in along time! Great food, great service and great atmosphere. They really made my sister feel special and I definitely recommend this place and I WILL be going back as soon as I'm back in Nottingham.

The S&S king prawn in batter was out of this world. The batter was so light and the sauce very tasty. The Thai green prawn curry was excellent too. Service very friendly and efficient. Well done.
