We came here for the first time since the restaurant changed location. Food was delicious (my husband said the best he has ever had in over 10 years of coming to the restaurant) and the staff were attentive. The restaurant is child friendly, with the owner and his family always making us welcome... read more

The welcome was informal yet friendly and the restaurant appeared to be clean and classy with an open plan theme. (Subtly decorated for St. Valentine's Day without distracting from its ambience) A crisp and light complimentary popadom was supplied while I made choices from... More

Went to the old location 2 years ago when visiting the Warner bros studios enjoyed it so much we wanted to go again. New location (106 The Parade, High St. Watford, Herts WD17 1AW) is more centrally located and certainly a lot more smarter however thankfully the food is just as good and the welcome you receive is second to...

We were told it was recently opened and after looking at the menu decided to give it a try. The service was very good and they had a really good menu. The service was excellent and the food was very fresh and Nicely presented. The wine menu and the beers are very well priced.

Very slow service. Only got served drinks after the owner saw we were sitting at the table with no drinks for quite a while. No one was in a hurry to take our order and staff were busy chatting at the bar. One persons meal was wrong once we eventually got served. So sent it back. Got told the chef... More

This restaurant is no more. The signs are down and the windows shuttered! Nearby was a road sign saying no entry. In this case it applied to these premises.
