Had a smoked salmon salad - I couldn't not, the ingredients felt like they'd been put together for me and it didn't disappoint though food envy levels were high here. I eyed up some great looking kebabs, pies and moroccan dishes (a particular favourite of mine). Had a small salad that kept me going until my evening meal. Fast service.... More

They serve gluten free pasta which i find a huge plus, and the staff have been excellent each time i have been there. Food portions are very big, the mushroom and chicken pasta dish i got... More

I like this place very much. The food is very tasty and good value for money. The staff are very nice and polite. You can take your own drink which keeps the bill down. The only thing is that it gets busy and is a bit cramped and warm at times, but otherwise very good....

After hearing good things about this restaurant we decided to give it a try, it was quite busy on a Saturday afternoon but the staff seemed slightly overwhelmed, the service was sufficient but it was nothing to leave a good impression. The food portions were big for the prices, which were quite reasonable, but the food itself was lacking seasoning... More
