Today we had a lovely meal here very friendly staff and very helpful. We have a young child that is gluten free and feel very confident that there will alway be something she likes here. I asked lots of question and they are happy to answer. Great food look forward to our next visit.

Myself and my husband visited Grand Central for breakfast this morning. We were seated swiftly and served by a very helpful waitress called Janice, she answered all our questions about items on the menu and made our visit enjoyable, we will definitely be back!

Excellent fillet steak & Coco prawns! Good varied menu of burgers, chicken, ribs, steaks, fish, etc. We were served & looked after by Holly & Maria who were... More
