Used to visit grand central relatively often - went tonight and was awful! They were busy granted (we had been warned that there was a table of 20 & a table of 30 seated on the telephone!) however if a restaurant is unable to cope with big group booking my suggestion is you don't take them! Took over 20 minutes... More

Visited this restaurant for a family birthday with friends. The staff, especially our waitress, were very good. However, the food was only average. The fries are seasoned with fajita seasoning and tasted like bacon, yuk!! The waitress gladly bought us some plain ones instead. The vegetable wrap and the sizzling fajitas only consisted of peppers and onions rather than the... More

I visited with a friend for a birthday treat. Not much of an atmosphere but it was a week night so this may be why. Still, we were sat in an area with no other tables in sight.
