Stopped for meal after movie and wished we hadn't. Service took so long my son had to go and find a waiter to take an order. Food starter was garlic bread basically a tortilla dripping in wet butter. Steak main was more fat and gristle than steak Chilli was just fat and gristle no flavour at all and rice tasteless... More

Went to this restaurant for other halfs birthday. Was half full but staff were running around like lunatics as if they've never worked here before. The 2 female (polish looking) managers were constantly shouting at the kitchen staff and seeing as we were seated right next to the serving hatch this got very tedious and stressful after an hour. How... More

Not only did it take them half an hour to seat us, they then took about 20 minutes to actually take our order. They then didn't have the capacity to bring out a portion of nachos along with my main as if the idea of bringing out a starter along side a main was way too much for them to... More

My partner and I visited this zoo like restaurant on the 12th of June where no staff had time for the customers and did not bother with the orders. Our main course took well over and hour and a half and we were waiting another 45 minutes for our desert. A tip for any new customers wanting to try here.... More

The food was fine, standard mexican fare - the tables are set out in standard efficient format and staff are friendy enough. Good place to eat before going to the flicks, it was very busy (a good sign) - probably not ideal for a romantic or authentic night out.

Went for my birthday with my family and enjoyed the Texan BBQ Chicken Melt which was lovely, with nachos to start, which I wouldn't recommend to anyone who isn't a fan of soggy nachos at the bottom! Other than that, service was shoddy and had to wait a while to order desserts and also to receive desserts. Note that the... More

Like many of the chain restaurants in this area They seem to do a much better job when they are not working to capacity. We visited at a quiet lunch time on Bank Holiday Monday, The service from Natalie was outstanding. There were no complaints regarding the food. Probably far too much choice on the menu they should cut the... More

There was a big choice of food. It arrived hot and great service. But it was chips with everything! Staff were good with my baby.
