I came to this restaurant last night. I was on my hen do with my friends. The manager was unwelcoming and miserable. The food was awful, it was way too expensive and the staff were miserable too. They forgot my change and there was no apology. Call this customer service? I don't think so, no customer retention from us again.

Walked in wasn't sure at first but once we looked at food we decided to stay. Ate mostly Indian and loved it. Naan's made to order were amazing! Large selection of currys and accompaniments. Chinese was good too. Shame no Mexican on Sunday lunch. Only downside boring deserts.

We were seated next to the dessert station (which had no lights on, very dark) by a very unhappy man. Definitely not service with a smile. I ordered a jug of water and he walked away, not even responding. A different girl brought the water out and she was nice and friendly but we never saw her after that. She... More

Came here for a leaving party with colleagues. A good place to go when there are lots of you as there is so much choice. The only complaints we had were that the food wasn't really that hot but probably because it's all sat out in a buffet style. Also the plates seemed to be a bit grubby and the... More

Love the idea of the buffet, big attraction for me sampling lots of different flavours which I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed. So much choice.
