We were seated quickly and as it was very quitet for a Sunday night we served promptly too. The... More

Just back from our second visit to this restaurant and it was even better than our first visit. The food was superb, service was very good. There were two large parties (14 and 8) the evening we visited but we were served promptly and no long delays between courses, which can happen when there are large groups to be catered... More

Lovely ambience, nice decor and a lovely cocktail bar. Food is fine dining, not like your takeaway by any means.

Since I was disappointed for the first time, I thought that I should give a second chance to this restaurant because the tableware was wonderful, and the food was so delicious that’s why I tried it again. For the first time the waitress’ finger was in my food. I didn’t warned her because I thought she would realize her mistake,... More

From the outside it doesn't look much but from the inside it is quite different. The food is not to be missed. From starters to deserts you will not be let down. An infusion of flavours which work well together. I will be back for more.

I'd driven passed this establishment many time and wanted to visit. It all started with the booking, table requested for 7:30 but advised we should book for 8pm as service would be very slow! So we booked for 8pm. Arrived on time to a very nice welcome, had a drink before being seated. Promptly invited through where we ordered the... More

We went as a special meal for visitors from abroad who adored Chinese food. Our daughter and her partner had been before so we went on their recommendation. None of us was disappointed. We went mid-week so the restaurant was quiet and relaxed with pleasant background music that did not intrude.There were nine in our party and we were taken... More

My recent trip to this restaurant was a family affair and all appeared to be very pleasant. The variety of food was very good and the dressing and display was good. However, after the initial pleasantries I started to notice the attention to detail. The tables were ebony and reasonably marked and sticky, I was prepared to overlook this on... More
