Always satisfied

We have been visiting Kalared since the day it opened nearly ten years ago. We have always been made to feel welcome by the owner and or his wife. The food we cannot fault and it is certainly value for money. Terence and Gillian

Rude waiter, ignored our table once he knew we were using tastecard. Forgot one of our dishes. Good food, all fresh and tasty. Disappointing that the waiter was so rude as won't return. I notice he is mentioned in other reviews.

Ate here last night as a table of four, phoned up in advanced and was told we could use two tastecards. Upon arrival we advised that we would be using both tastecards and were abruptly told we could only use one. The man in question went to query this but did not come back to us. We then had to...

Nice idea and caters for the party goers as well as the diners, good choice of aisian drinks down stairs in the bar, much better than just a pint of Carlsburg. Anx a reasonable restaurant up stairs. If you are in town and are partying or going for az meal well worth a visit.

We had dinner here last night, the man serving us was rude and didn't smile. Only positive was the friendly Young girl who served our drinks. Food was average, and felt it was forced upon us to order desserts - which we didn't. Had a drink downstairs - service was much better.but overall don't recommend it

Came here because I heard they did good cocktails. When my friend asked for the cocktail menu the hi near lady gave us a look like 'I can't be bothered with that'. 20 mins for three cocktails to be made an in the process she forgot the first cocktail ordered for my other friend. When reminded about the first cocktail... More

We had a 3 course set meal for two and alI I can say is that I'm pretty certain it was frozen food, deep-fried and served up with luminous orange sauce. Everything tasted the same; chicken nuggets! Disappointing and bland
