I work close by and visited after a late night working.. what a mistake and should have checked tripadvisor first.. all of the previous comments are right! staff - rude food - awful the only saving grace was the beer - but not enough..

Went here on a groupon and had the buffet which I must say was very limited. The food was ok but I've definitely had better. I can't comment on the a la carte menu tho. Waiting staff seemed pleasant enough.

I have visited this restaurant 3 times in total and being a fan of the bem brasil and Tropeiro restaurants in the city centre was excited at the prospect of a similar, cheaper one on my doorstep. I have never been on the groupon vouchers and have always paid full price £17.50 for all you can eat meat platter and... More

Myself and my wife had the misfortune to visit this restaurant last Friday. We were in the area for a presentation evening at Chorlton Irish club nearby. After browsing what restaurants were near we liked the look of this place and decided to give it a try. Big mistake. It was around six thirty when we arrived and the owner... More

I went here a couple of months ago with a groupon voucher but have only just got round doing a review. I think we went on a wednesday evening, there was about 6 other people in the restaurant. However we still had to wait aggggges for our drinks to be brought over. The staff weren't very friendly. You get a... More

I went a while ago but have just had an email with a voucher offer so thought I should warn people! I too had a voucher - £12 for 2 people sharing a meat platter and the buffet. I'm so glad I didn't pay any more, the buffet was just salads and some chilli con carne that was definitely not... More

Look, I am quite a foody person and enjoy slumming it in the burger places and also paying top dollar to eat fancy fish eggs and things like that. A group of 4 of us went on a Groupon Voucher. It was a quiet night, us in there only, but we did have the last available booking as they close... More

After reading other reviews below, mine strangely matches up-quite worryingly with others. Yes we had a voucher from living social for a starter, unlimited buffet and dessert. We booked a table, on arrival, we were ignored for atleast 5 mins. We were then sat down. After 5 mins I wondered if we were invisible...it then all got slightly worse. I... More

We got a Groupon voucher some time ago and we were quite concerned about the visit cos of all the poor reviews. I don't know if they have taken it on-board but we had no issues at all and enjoyed it very much. There was lots of choice on the buffet, the food was hot and very tasty, and the... More

We had a Groupon voucher for 4 (cost £50) for as much as you can eat buffet plus meat/seafood platters. Upon arrival the resturant was very very noisy with kids running around and yelling. We were served a meat platter, we had requested a seafood platter but were told this was not available with the voucher. Yet it clearly states... More
