Great food, but needs some atmosphere

The food here is great, but the ambiance is not very inviting. The place needs some colour on the walls and maybe a few pictures. The service was great and the staff are very helpful and they cater well for Gluten Free (always a plus for me)

I had not been here for about three years. It had been a very good meal then, so being as it was in the Entertainment Book and we were in the vicnity, four of us decided to visit recently. I learnt when we were about to leave, that the premises was under new management since then. The menu we found... More

We do enjoy going here for meals! The food was always good every time we went! Especially enjoyed the Arancini Balls! Can't say anything bad about this restaurant! Would always recommend!

WEnt to dinner there last night with a work collegue. The service was excellent, and we were not left waiting at all. The food was totally amazing, I had pork belly and could not fault it at all. Would definately go back

We went here on Easter Monday. The staff we so accommodating as there had been no deliveries that day because of the public holiday. There were 5 adults and one child at our table. The waitress was so on to it as she gave the child her meal first which meant Mum and Dad could relax. Our food was absolutely... More

My husband and I popped in here for dinner one Friday night. It wasn't busy but we waited over an hour for our meals which were really unpleasant when they arrived. I'm not sure how you make a salad inedible but this place managed it. We caught a flight the next day and the meals we were served on the... More

Works meal out before Christmas for about 10 of us. None of us impressed with food. It was all very bland. I had the falafel main course which was so salty and charred I was thirsty all night afterwards. Wont be going back here to eat.

Possibly the worst eating experience I have had. We arrived around 8:30 on a Thursday evening and were told that they were no longer serving food other than from the Bar Snacks menu. It was getting late to go elsewhere so we ordered a mixed platter of fried spring rolls, samosas, chicken nuggets etc. We were told that there would... More

We went here the other evening. The food was bland and the meat was low quality. Having had robs in the US we tried these but it was tough not falling off the bone. The other dish was bland and undercooked. Very disappointed since it had a high rating on this site.
