Myself and 3 friends visited Taurus after receiving awful service at another establishment. We sat by the window, and a lovely waiter called Ian opened the window for me, even though it was raining. ( I'm of a certain age prone to flushes!). The food was excellent, as were the cocktails! Would definitely recommend it.

We came here after an exhibition at Mcr Central. The food was fabulous and didn't take long to arrive at all. We were served by a man called Ian, who was lovely and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The cocktails were also delicious! Overall I'd say, top notch service, excellent food and drinks and quite reasonably priced. I... More
