A group of us had booked a table for 7.30 on a Saturday evening. We were quickly served. The starters were good, some people thought their main courses were a little dry, others enjoyed theirs but said that a few vegetables etc would have been welcome.

Good food. Great hosts. Amazing belly dancer :D The food not only tasted great but was also a good serving size. Hosts were friendly and chatty throughout the meal, always there if you needed anything. At the end of the meal was some traditional greek dancing and then some egyption belly dancing as well. Will definitely visit again soon.
