Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but unless you look like a cast member from the awful TV show that is The Only way is Essex you will feel out of place here. It's perfect for Z list celeb spotting. I will admit I had a laugh because I do not take it all seriously. I will also... read more

My friends have been talking about this place for a while, I was putting it off for sometime due to all the bad reviews I've read about service, and the last thing I want is to be treated badly when going out to eat. However my nightmare started early, even before attending the restaurant itself. When booking the table for... More

Rude and very snobby staff. I have been to sheesh many times and they randomly became very particular on who they allow in. I was once told that a party of 6 women could not be allocated a table despite there being availability because they 'only allow mixed gender groups of 6'. However, a friend of mine could book a...

Service is so tentative at this place and helpful. The food is top notch and reasonable. The venue is strangely beautiful in its mix of modern Turkish furniture and Tudor setting. Great place will be returning and would highly recommend for couples and friends over family and business due to the only way of Essex feel and loud conversations of... More

After my previous reservation, which they managed to lose, I swore I would not try again! However, after receiving grief from my Wife who still wanted to go there, I agreed to go but she would have to book it. On 23rd June she attempted to book a table for 5 for a future date. They said hold on and... More

My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and we both rate it 5* service from start to finish. The décor and surroundings are very sumptuous from driving into the car park and being directed to a space, to being in the huge open restaurant. You feel a bit special walking in here, like you're in for a treat. Table... More

Food was very nice, restaurant very nice. However the food is massively overpriced. £20 for a tray of dips with 2 baskets of bread? Not again thanks.
