Was really disappointed with the quality of food. The staff were arrogant and rude and to top it all of they tried to con me out of my deposit! They ruined my engagement party which had left me and my fiancé with a sour memory.

11 of us came here for my daughter's hen do. What a fantastic night out we had, from great food and good entertainment. We ate off the party menu. Good choices of food which all tasted great. Good service, especially considering how busy the entertainment was. The entertainment was good. Good belly dancer and we all danced the night away.... More

We had the £17 set menu, I had calamari which was lovely and fresh followed by the mushroom fillet steak - if you have the set menu, you must have the fillet steak! A fellow hen had the... More

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
