We visited on a hen night in July. The outside doesn't look very appealing as the building is being renovated and inside is quite small and crowded but we enjoyed delicious food and a fun atmosphere. Drink prices on par with Birmingham so not too bad. It was very hot in there and despite asking for the ceiling fans to... More

We went quite recently for a hen do and this was the perfect place for it. The food was really really good - I had the lamb shank and it was huge. It's not the place to come for a romantic meal or for a cosy chat with friends as the music is quite loud but great place for a... More

having read some of horrendous reviews about this restaurant i am sure to tell you none of them are true. the greek food here is delicious. ranging from the sausage, to the meat, to the tzanziki. Personally i love greek food and having the chance to go to this restaurant had been an amazing way to feel the greek tradition.... More

Firstly let me tell you i am very hard to please - I mean look at some of my previous reviews. We approached the restaurant for a work leaving party and outside was scaffolding, chairs you'd associate with at social club and i started to fear the worst. We sat down however and the way we were treated by the... More

I was really looking forward to going to this restaurant with a large group of us for my sisters birthday, however I was very disappointed. It was far too loud for enjoying a meal and chatting, you have to near enough shout to the person next to you or opposite for them to be able to hear you. Far too... More

Oh my goodness! A large group of us arrived for a hen night meal. The barman didn't know how to make most of the cocktails on his list and offered fabulous alternatives including a margarita made with amaretto rather than cointreau, and a champagne cocktail with no champagne but plenty of fresh strawberries! The food was somewhat Greek but nowhere... More

This was a very sorry night out for my and my wife. We went in summer and there was no one there - not even staff. The waiter was also the chef and, while he was very welcoming, he didn't do much cooking. I ordered a seafood started, which was the same as one you would buy in the fish... More
