Great place to chill and laze around. Their tiramisu is amazing. They also do a tea called Nirvana which is a cuppa brewed with spices and herbs- perfect for sipping on a cool day. They have live performances every few days and the staff and owners are very nice. The outside sitting area is the closest you can sit to... More

We were there on the 16th July and had a great meal followed by some very courteous service from Simran in particular. I would strongly recommend this place. Live music and good food

The pizza is good (nothing amazing), but if you are a meat lover you will be disspointed by the amount of chicken/bacon in the dish. The iced tea was a good surprise, I liked it a lot. Perhaps it is a nice and comfortable place.
